50 Cent On The Fence About Staying With Interscope Records

Fif says that him staying with the label is contingent on how they handle his fifth solo release.

After claiming that label woes delayed his upcoming fifth album and soon after announcing a November release date, 50 Cent is weighing whether or not to ditch the label after it hits stores. Speaking with MTV News, the G-Unit general explained that his staying with Interscope depends on how they handle the release.

"I don't know," he said. "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." 

He explained that if things didn’t go as planned, he could always fall back to being an independent artist.

"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?" he continued. "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."

    game ended this guy's career. nobody even gives a shit that he has a new album coming out, or even that he still makes music, and yet game has the most anticipated album of the entire year, even destroying detox by a big amount on the polls.

    The label i'snt behind him cause everything he's put out is garbage. he was good when Banks was writing his shit. Same with Eminem, they just need to retire, they were hot but now they are not. J. cole, k. lamar, xv, thats whats good and lyrical.

    • lol

      j.cole??? cant even put an album out, gonna end up like detox if he dont hurry up. As for k.lamar, hes good, but he aint lyrical

    Rappers with his kind of money don't go the indie route. That's a huge step down. Gracefully bow out and just acknowledge that you fell the fuck off. Then maybe in 2-3 years, come back and drop another album.

    • smh

      lol u hater...Fif dont need to put out anymore music, the brothers set for life...and even if he went the indie route, he till getting more paper than most in the game!

    50 Cent is the worst rapper since lil B...I dont care how much money he has!!! he aint paying my bills!

    Fif is one very confused artist. He's trying to do too much all at once. His last albums weren't hot, and I'm sure if Em and Dre didn't back him from the get-go, he wouldn't be where he's at now. All that hype in the beginning fizzled out right after the 1st album, and his movie. He should retire, leave hip-hop and just focus on being an entre-preneur. He's made his money, if I was him, I'd get out. He's getting too old for this anyways, if anything, re-vamp G-Unit with Fresh Talent. Like Em is doing with Shady Records. That's my best advice for Fiddy.

    • lol

      you giving advice to Fif??? lolololol...I bet your a broke ass nigga...dont be giving advice to someone whos worth more than your entire families history put together

    50 aint hot since GRODT. His career is over. R.I.P. 50 Cent 1999-2003.

  • Dudes Corny

    I don't really like how Interscope operates but 50 is his own worse enemy. He "beefed" his way out of popularity. Dude would not stop doing dumb shit. I was completely done with him after the Rick Ross mother incident. I mean WTF are you doing? Then he and Flyod Mayweather went as far as to bring Ross's kids into the picture??? Really nigga? CORNY.

    • Miami P.D. Officer John Smith

      I totally agree with you, Officer William Roberts. There's no more interest on Curtis Jackson because you really did end his career. Now let's 10-76 at a doughnut shop later. I'm hungry.

    Wow, this idiot shouldve had his own label at this point. Dont know why he didnt go independent a long time ago and leave interscope alone. If he did that right after grodt he might not have fucked his career up the way it is now.

  • lol

    after all the beefin and people gettin sick and tired of it 50 sounds desperate LMAO What a silly clown. Dont like the show master Ricky Ross is but if they both drop an album today Ross will outsell 50 LOL
