Just about 20 minutes ago, Shonlock stepped out of a meeting with Arrow Records. Shonlock reports via his cell phone to twitter "Hey things are great!! Im really excited about the record, can't wait to share it with you all!", a few minutes later Arrow records reports on twitter "Just finished a meeting w/ @shonlock @jgm_arrow & @ceomgmt Excited about the new opportunities w/ this next project". This got us wondering and we asked Arrow Records if Shonlock signed with Arrow Records, their response was "YEZZZZZIIIIIRRRRR!!!!! Shonlock is signed to Arrow Records."

An official press release will be out soon, but we wanted to get the breaking news out fast, thanks to twitter! By the way follow us on twitter.com/rapzilla Add a comment

About Real Vision
We are constantly bombarded with messages to believe from popular culture, from churches, from friends, etc. It seems like everywhere we turn someone has something they want us to buy into.
