G-Unit leader 50 Cent has opened up about his issues with Interscope Records and why his forthcoming solo album could be his last project through the renowned company.
According to 50, Interscope’s problems are currently internal.
“It’s actually my final requirement. My fifth album and the final requirement for Interscope. I had some difficulties with the actual system,” 50 explained in an interview. “There are people there that are afraid to lose their job — they’ve seen other people get fired. I think they’re afraid to make some decisions that need to be made right away, they just sit and look…We’ve had some conversations communicated to develop plans for different things and it’s not actually executed in the time plan that we’ve created. And I get frustrated and I start doing things, like I put the record out.” (MTV UK)
A few weeks ago, 50 aired out his Interscope frustrations.
“Man I’m not releasing a album i can’t believe interscope is this f*cked up right now. I apologize to all my fans.,” he tweeted July 27th.
“I will work with other artist on there projects but I will not put out another album. They dropped the ball with me one time to many.” (50 Cent’s Twitter)
He later explained his anger and promised the album would drop in November.
“My album should be out in November,” 50 promised in an interview. “It’s easy. Everybody, they prioritize my projects. When they don’t do things exactly when we had communication about it being done, I get frustrated. Let me be honest with you. They need that record to sell more than I do. Not necessarily that [it’s dark over there], it’s just the systems itself unless you feel you’re going to make a new artist.” (Headkrack)
Earlier this summer, 50 contemplated whether or not he would stay with Interscope Records following his final contractual release.
“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)
