G-Unit leader 50 Cent has had enough with Interscope Records and publicly called the renowned company out over his delayed follow-up to 2009’s Before I Self Destruct.
Comparing his situation to Dr. Dre‘s long-delayed Detox album, 50 lashed out his issues across Twitter.
“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.”
“I would rather not launch my album with out a plan the whole system is executing. I don’t know why they play with me they know how I get.”
“My whole career iv been doing sh*t and they have been playing catch up this is the last f*cking album THEY BETTER WAKE UP AND WORK” (50 Cent’s Twitter)
Earlier this week, 50’s manager Chris Lighty said the project would drop this fall.
According to Chris Lighty, 50’s almost finished with his fifth album, which is “sounding great.” “We’re rolling out the marketing partners and everything now,” Chris Lighty told AllHipHop.com. “Once we put the stake in the ground on a date, we’re gonna try and stick to it so we can use our marketing dollars around that date.” According to Chris Lighty, 50 Cent’s album Black Magic will hit stores this Fall.

A few weeks ago, 50 upped the ante by aiming to make the album live up to his 2003 multi-platinum selling debut, Get Rich or Die Tryin’.
“Iv been working I’m recording a lot for this album. I’m gonna keep recording cause I want to top get rich or die trying.,” he tweeted May 29th.
“You can be mad cause you have to wait but you will be happy when it comes. I want it to be perfect.” (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)
