20 Rappers Who Almost Signed To Other Labels


Label They Almost Signed To: G-Unit
Label They Ended Up Signing To: Def Jam
Circa: 2005

In a rap world dominated by crews, folks like Fabolous stand out from the crowd. The Brooklyn veteran had the opportunity to be apart of 50 Cent’s G-Unit in 2005, actually, but he decided to remain a lone wolf. "I remember at one time 50 was offering me different things to come and be a part of G-Unit,” said Fab, to the Power 105’s Breakfast Club. “At the time where they were signing Mobb Deep, Ma$e and all of those kind of guys and I just didn't know if I wanted to be under something. I've always kind of had my own lane and everybody just respected me for what I do so that would have been a different turn and probably could have been successful, but successful for how long? You always got to think about it, too."
