[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]50 Cent [/lastfm]has opened up a [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]G-Unit [/lastfm]office in the U.K. in order to make sure that he continues to enlarge his world distribution of music. Is it a smart move? Is this just the first of many other artist to follow along the same guide lines?

According to Hiphopwired.com:

50 Cent’s G-Unit records is taking a step in the direction of global expansion by partnering with PIAS Entertainment Group and opening a headquarter office in the UK.

“Last year we took the decision to restructure the label and begin to carve out it’s own world-wide distribution, marketing and promotions strategy, says Nikki Martin, Vice President, G-Unit Records & Entertainment.

“After signing with EMI for North America we looked at who could help develop the brand in other key territories and we decided to partner with PIAS who shared our vision and passion for the music.”

UK music figurehead Dan Greenpeace is heading up the UK/European G-Unit office. [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lloyd Banks’[/lastfm], The Hunger For More 2′ is the first record to be released, and will be officially available across the water March 21.

PIAS is an international licensing, distribution, sales and marketing company founded in 1982, headquartered in Brussels, Belgium.

Now, If 50 Cent can only make a strong musical come back here in the U.S.? The recovery road is long and hard. But, I think he made a good choice to open an office overseas. 50 Cent is a smart business man most of the time. And this time? He got it right.
