Cashville Records (also known as G-Unit South) is an American independent record label based in Nashville, Tennessee founded by rapper Young Buck. Due to a feud with rapper 50 Cent dating back to late 2007, David Brown had to change the name from G-Unit South to Cashville Records because Brown was no longer allowed to used the G-Unit logo or name to distribute his music. The label has signed such acts as The Outlawz, C-Bo, Lil Scrappy and more.[1]

2008-2012[edit]

In 2008, The Outlawz were the latest addition to Cashville Records, joining veteran rapper C-Bo, who became a part of the label's roster in January.[1]

In late 2011 it was rumoured that Lil' Kim was signing with the label. She would later confirm this in an interview stating that "If y'all don’t know, this my boy right here. G-Unit South, that’s where it’s at... And I’m family too, down with the G-Unit camp. We got surprises for y'all." she said in an interview with Rap-Up.com. As of 2012 nothing has materialized yet.[2]

Rapper Mystikal also confirms that he himself almost signed to the label in 2012 after he revealed that he got many offers while in prison, including a very attractive deal from Cashville Records. However, he would later sign with YMCMB.[3]

In 2012, West coast veteran rapper, C-Bo, released his first album on the label and plans on releasing his second album Orca in 2012 as well.

After Young Buck heard Tha City Paper's mixtape DOPaminE he was quick to sign him to Ca$hville Records in early 2012. In the summer of 2012 both Buck and Paper linked up for a Collaboration mixtape entitled G.a.S - Gangsta and Street, this was the first project Paper released through Cashville Records since he signed to the label.[4]

2013-Present[edit]

Newly signed artist Rukus 100 released his first project on the label in early 2013, the project was an Official Mixtape called "Smokin' Out The Pound" soon after a DVD was released also named "Smokin' Out The Pound". These projects were released to help promote Rukus upcoming debut album on Cashville Records Money Hungry.
