With the new release of his "Major Distribution" Street King Immortal single coming just weeks after his "My Life" smash, SOHH chopped it up with G-Unit's 50 Cent to see where things stand with him and Interscope Records.
Despite publicized quarrels in the past, Fif said he is on even playing ground with the label and explained how much of a role Interscope has had on his career.
"With Interscope, look, all artists are going to express their frustrations with the system at some point," Fif told SOHH. "I've had all the success in my career with Interscope Records. You know? So when everybody is there and working, that's a powerful system there but a lot of people that are walking around the building now are new faces so I'm reintroducing myself and creating a new focus with the people that are actually there."

Earlier this year, Fif addressed his past problems with Interscope Records.
As far as his next solo LP, the one that has been talked about since he released Before I Self Destruct in 2009, 50 is looking for an end-of-the-year drop now that he has cleared up all issues with Interscope. "They're in full support of me now. We cleared up audit issues. That's always an issue, when you get to the final album or the final requirement you end up going through the books with everything that you've done," he said. "Once those things are resolved, everyone is ready to get back to work, and that's where we're at." (MTV)
He previously cited problems meeting eye-to-eye with Interscope for adding to their now-nixed conflict.
"I wrote this album. I went through the process of writing it. It's been discouraging at points to not see the same efforts from everyone," 50 said when asked about his label frustrations and perceived depression. "As far as me partnering with Feeding America for this actual project, the business model that I adapted was -- conscious capitalism. [New album this year?] Hopefully." (CES)
Last night, the G-Unit head honcho released his "Major Distribution" teaser.
While 50 Cent's current single 'My Life' plays heavy on radio, he decides to give us another tease of his forthcoming 5th album Street King Immortal, due in stores in February 2013. This one however features Snoop Dogg and Young Jeezy, having a totally different feel from 'My Life'. Full version is hopefully coming soon but until then, take a look at the 2 minute preview directed by Eif Rivera. (HHNM)
