Background

Glasses Malone's whole family was very deep in the illegal drug trade (his mother was convicted and sentenced to prison for 25 years). He eventually abandoned hustling drugs and gang-banging to pursue music fully. He immediately made a big impact with street albums one called The Crack Mixtape (2003) and the other called White Lightning (2005) which together sold in the tens of thousands and provided a number of hits for L.A. radio. The buzz he created from those two mixtapes alone stirred up a high-end, major-label bidding war that included Def Jam Recordings, Atlantic Records, and Aftermath Entertainment as suitors.[7]

Traditionally associated with rapper Game's The Black Wall Street Records despite the fact that most of the artists on that record label were Bloods and Malone being the only Crip on that record label, so in late 2005 Glasses Malone was discovered by former Aftermath Entertainment A&R Executive Mike Lynn who was the one who brought multi platinum rapper "Game" to Dr. Dre's Aftermath Entertainment Imprint, Mike Lynn saw the vision and the movement Glasses Malone had going on, and Mike Lynn was so eager to sign the Watts native that he was willing to pony 1.7 million dollars for the deal and give Glasses Malone his own label imprint, Mike Lynn who was very impressed with Malone's music had an imprint record label called Big Ego Entertainment under Sony Music Entertainment's, Sony Urban Music and Columbia Records signed Glasses Malone to his label for a whopping $1.7 million and distribution deal with Sony Music Entertainment for his own record label imprint called Blu Division Music that Sony Music Entertainment and Mike Lynn promised him[3], turning down many offers from other major labels like Def Jam Recordings, Interscope Records, J Records, Atlantic Records, Aftermath Entertainment and of course The Black Wall Street Records.[3] During the following year, Sony Music Entertainment underwent massive restructuring which included eliminating the label's urban division which was known as Sony Urban Music which Glasses Malone was signed to. Malone was released from his contract in 2007, but wasted no time in securing a new record label joint deal with Cash Money Records and Westside Connection MC Mack 10's Hoo-Bangin' Records practically a week later.[7]
