With 50 Cent just one album obligation away from being a free agent, the G-Unit leader has hinted at what it will take to keep him under the Interscope Records umbrella.
For 50, Interscope’s interest in his forthcoming solo album will likely contribute to whether he remains at the label.
“I don’t know,” 50 told MTV News when asked if he would ink back with Interscope once his five-album deal was fulfilled. “It will all be clear in the negotiations following me turning this actual album in. And, of course, the performance and how they actually treat the work will determine whether you still want to stay in that position or not…It’s not like you’re gonna be able to make a project bigger than the actual project is, but if the songs are right and you have full support and you feel that support, why would you want to go anywhere else? If not, if you don’t have that support, why would you want to sign to another system? In the financial state that I’m in, you just do it yourself.” (MTV)
Last weekend, 50 announced plans to drop a new album in November.
“My headphones and my album coming in NOV RT @EasierToSee: @50cent first the sleeks! now the album being pushed back!! What’s next?,” he tweeted in response June 19th.
“Me and EM are going to record for my album soon.” (50 Cent’s Twitter)
A few days ago, 50 aired out Interscope Records due to internal problems related to his LP.
“Ok I tried to be cool with my record company . I went to the meeting talk to everyone and sh*t feels like there moving in slow motion,” he tweeted June 16th.
“I’m sorry to announce I will not be releasing a new album this year if we don’t get on the same page.” (50 Cent’s Twitter)
Around late May, 50 appeared on the “Ellen DeGeneres Show” to speak on his delayed LP.
“I finished my new album now,” he revealed to television talk show host Ellen DeGeneres. “I’m actually one song away from being done. I’m mixing the record. I’m excited…This summer[the fans] will have new music from me.” (Rap-Up)
