[With G-Unit's 50 Cent on the verge of dropping his final contractual Interscope Records album, G-Note's Governor tells SOHH readers about their relationship and what his status is on the music mogul's roster.]
As far as the label support from 50 Cent, he's always there. For certain dates, he'll pull me out and I'll get to do some huge venues and get my name and my sound into some places that I haven't been able to reach thanks to him.
The support is there and I'm just trying to take everything that I can to move my own ball. I want to get my own ball rolling. 50 Cent is already a mogul, he's already a made man and I'm not waiting on 50. I appreciate his support and I respect him being there as a longtime associate in the industry but I'm not waiting. I'm a grown a** man and I've gotta grow.
This music is important and people have to hear it. This isn't 50's type of music so I can't expect him to have but so much fire behind it. It is not the music that is exemplary of his brand, of his machine at the moment.
So we're trying to expand even that from the music. I'm on my way.
Right now, the emphasis is on creating a lane. I've talked to 50 numerous amounts of times and he just wants people in. I'm sure he's searching and I heard he was still searching for distribution himself.
We want to come up with a plan that will work for the both of us. Right now, that is up in the air. I'm at the point of getting the music done first and then go on to other things.
So as far as that's concerned, whatever comes along, I'm snatching the best option for success.
