G-Unit leader 50 Cent has publicly apologized over a recent anti-Intercope Records rant upon realizing he mistakenly placed the blame on the music empire over unauthorized records getting leaked.
In the apology, Fif also expressed his respect for Interscope CEO Jimmy Iovine.
"Discovered a computer glitch leaked my song. Sorry to team at interscope for over reacting!," he tweeted January 8th.
"I put a lot in to this project but I don't care if it ever comes out. Jimmy iovine has been like a mentor for me. I just want to stay friends" (50 Cent's Twitter)
Last week, 50 took to Twitter to unleash his Interscope issues.
"I have lost all the faith in the team I'm on. I having nothing left to say I will not be promoting my music.," he tweeted Monday (January 2). "I'm going to deliver this album then. I have a film I wrote to focus on I'm not upset I'm just convinced this is not how I want to remembered." (50 Cent's Twitter)
In December, the New York rap star said he had no intention of rushing out a new LP.
"I want to come out at the top of the year, I want to be ready, but, you know, of course it's all on how everybody else puts together their actual marketing campaign and get it right," 50 said in an interview with DJ Whoo Kid. "I don't have a timeline anymore. I'm doing the Dr. Dre. I'm doing what Eminem does. I've been on a shot clock my entire career. 'I've gotta come out during this period. I've got to come out during this period.' Like, every other year. My albums are so successful that it would take me a year to get done touring off of them. I may not necessarily tour off of this album. I might release it and decide I'm going to make the next one instead of actually going out and touring and let everybody live with that and do something different. Or they'll see me at spot dates."

A month prior, G-Unit's DJ Whoo Kid offered his take on Fif's multiple album setbacks.
"He wants it to come out but he's dealing with label sh*t too," Whoo Kid said about 50 Cent's album delay. "It's like the politics of when to drop and you gotta understand there's competition with other people too. So labels are just, like, maneuvering when to drop 'cause I know he did, most of it is done. Like 95 percent of it is finished so he wants it to come out and if it was up to him it would but I may assume it's the labels that's f*cking with him but at the end of the day I heard like nine joints that's crazy. I wish I had it now so I could f*cking make some serious money off of it myself, but, you'll hear it soon." (Amaru Don TV)
