[AllHipHop News] Philadelphia rapper Beanie Sigel has announced exclusively to that he signed a new EMI distribution deal under the guidance of industry veteran Chris Schwarz.

During a studio session in Brooklyn, New York last night (March 28), Beanie Sigel spoke one-on-one with about the new deal and what it means for the future of his solo career, and more importantly, his State Property affiliates.

“That’s what kind of pushed me to really do this album. I was sought out by Chris Schwarz. He had a situation at EMI and was looking for an artist,” Beanie Sigel explained. ”I had just recorded a couple songs in the studio. Somebody heard a record and was like, ‘You should check out Beanie; he hasn’t been doing anything.’

“The first conversation was kind of generic – it was like, ‘Uhh yeah.’ I had deals on the table; I’ve been approached by everybody from everywhere – from E1, well to Kotch first, to E1 to Asylum. For me to sign to a major, it’s like, ‘For what?’ I’m too far advanced in my career to go to a 360 deal. I’ve learned too much of the business to put myself in that position now.”
