50 Cent Says He Has "Full Support" From Interscope Now

During a recent interview, 50 Cent shared that he feels he now has "full support" from Interscope.

After releasing his latest mixtape, 50 Cent explained the meaning behind 5. In an interview with MTV, the Queens emcee said he feels good about releasing this free tape for his fans before his actual fifth album Street King Immortal. He also shared that he feels he now has "full support" from Interscope.

"What I'm releasing right now is a part of me wanting music out during the middle of the summer," he said. "I had a plan for myself: I wanted to have the new record come out during my birthday."

He also added that he doesn't need any support from his label for this release.

"I don't really need label support for this project," he noted. "It's about the actual music, and I don't think people buy what record label you're on; I think they buy music or buy into the actual artist themselves."

While he may not need label support for this project, he also shared more about Interscope. Fif added that he now feels he has "full support" from his label.

"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 explained. "Once those things are resolved, everyone is ready to get back to work, and that's where we're at."

    50 just stop rapping, your music sucks shit. He'll pull some stunt when his album drops to sell albums. Go back to NY & stay there. The West Coast is bored with your antics!!

    "guess rick ross is in that 1%" At least he had a legitimate job before turning into a rapper. Yeah, it makes for alot of jokes, but would you be more impressed if Ross had really killed people, and sold drugs to kids?

    i hope he doesn't say ''fuck jimmy" or something along that line next week. 50 is smarter and all but these days he sounds and acts more bipolar than game.

    He has support now because he's next in line when before he was not a priority for Interscope like he may have been years ago. I'm pretty sure his freakout and feud with his label over the year was precisely because he wasn't getting the priority attention and push like he received before, and took it as Interscope brushing him aside and screwing him over when it probably wasn't the case at all. He still sells records but the industry is changed, new popular artists with buzz are especially their focus since they usually make the most money, and this is his last album on his contract with his buzz faded long ago. It's an obligation for them to do produce his last album and obligations don't get first-in-line priority. Interscope is a corporate label with a CEO, executive board, and investors whose concern is the bottom line, and last I had heard, 50's last few album sales didn't make huge impacts like his first couple when he was on fire. They have to write checks all over the place to produce a 50 Cent album, and since they're not expecting a big payoff for his last album on his 5-album contract, along with the fact they have a release schedule and other artists receiving priority to get their records pushed out first, he has to wait in line when it's his turn. It's his turn now, good for him, and maybe or maybe not he'll renew his contract. His album will come out, hopefully it's good and he goes a better way than the last few that did nothing new or special, and he can finally stop having a reason to complain to the media believing his loud whining will encourage Interscope to treat him like it's 2003 and he's the hottest artist in the world.

      Do you ever get bored repeating yourself on this website literally all the time? I get why people troll but what I don't get are the kids like you making a non-paying full-time job out of it. You should briefly explain exactly what the point is.

  • Jason27

    What angers me the most is that 50 thinks he still makes great music.

      Jason you're a troll. I swear you are a 50 Cent stalker. Stop following this man around to hate. Sit back and learn a thing a two from the man. He's worth more than your whole family combined for 6 generations!

    1) This guys whores himself for any media coverage. 2) Appears to a a bit disloyal to those who helped build his brand. 3) Has a semi-homophobic relationship with Mayweather. 4) Has dissed EVERY major rapper since 2002. 5) His music has never lived up to the expectations Get Rich set. 6) And just appears to be an angry, bitter, jerk of a man. I say all of that to say this....WHO. THE. FUCK. CARES. ABOUT. THIS. DUDES. FORTHCOMING. ALBUM?........wait for it.......NOT A SOUL.

    "I bet when Jimmy Iovine gets rid of these 2 finally he's gonna go, get drunk and party like its his 21st birthday all over again" Then the next morning he bangs his head into the wall trying to find replacements. They'll get these guys off the books eventually, but then what?

    • @CJonno90

      yeah, because everything you read is fact...

    • Hip Hop Fan

      While Dr.Dre did make a lot of money off those headphone they will stop using Dre's name and they will no longer be called Beats by Dre. The company is in the process of cutting all ties with Dr.Dre, well that's what I read anyways.

    • Anonymous

      As I said in the original post I made, No amount of money would be worth putting up with them And, for the record, Jimmy & Dre probably make more money selling their headphones nowadays then they would on music, people actually pay money for those headphones unlike the music they listen to in them

    "50 lived the life he talks about and has made more money in such a short amount of time than anyone else and they dont like that" Lived the life? He sold a few drugs and got shot. That describes 99% of the ghetto. Second, 50 doesn't have more money than Jay or Diddy. Those dudes are brands. Fif was a name on the marque. Big difference.

  • seanchkt

    had a spark when you started and now your just garbage. Im truely starting to believe get rich or die tryin was ghost written how do you go from making one of the best rap albums to producing nothing but garbage. and dont tell me the massacre was hot because it sold 10 mill. it sold 10 mill cause 10 million people baught his first cd. curtis sold 1 mill because 10 million people bought the massacre.

    • seanchkt

      I was obviously joking bout the ghost writer thing. I was a 50 cent fan since how to rob and was thrilled when he signed to shady. Obviously the first few mixtapes were good. But his albums now a days are just like his mixtapes 2 hot songs the rest filler. Big 10- intro,shootouts,filler.

  • jr88

    smh....looks like 50 signed that 360 deal....since 03 50 was making more than 50 mill a year, interscope was cool with it because they were making a shit load of money because records were selling back then now that they are at a all time low they see 50 getting money and there like "wheres my cut?" and 50s like "that wasnt in the contract"....lol...

    • SCHWARZ

      LOL @ U +++++++++++ 360 deals have been made by traditional record companies, as in Robbie Williams's pioneering deal with EMI in 2002. They have also been made between artists and promoters, as with Live Nation's 2007 deal with Madonna and 2008 deal with Jay-Z ++++++++++++++ WHAT SAY U NOW THE GREAT BUSINESSMAN JAY-Z SIGNED A 360 DEAL THE CLOSE 2 A BILLIE RAPPER HAS THE MAN IN HIS POCKETS JUST AS MUCH AS THE NEXT RAPPER GUY

    Curtis made the majority of his income from that Vitamin Water deal. His actual label, that he owned (G Unit Records), only sold between 5-6 million albums worldwide to date.

      Maybe Or it could just be that his music sucks and he's an asshole No way to know for sure I guess

    • Reality Check

      But lets keep it real for a minute now...50 Cent didn't make 20% from his music, he got lucky when Coca Cola purchased Vitamin Water. He owned 10% of that company and got lucky, so stop acting like he made better moves in music business than Puff Daddy, Master P and Jay Z. Keep it real, lil homey.

  • dentaldamboy

    I don't like 50's music as much as I used to. But he still makes solid music. Some rappers these days like MGK, A$AP Rocky, Future, Wacka Flacka, Action Bronson and others are just painful to listen to. If anyone here hates on 50, you are obligated to hate those other rappers I mentioned. If you don't have those other rappers, then you are jealous of 50's wealth or offended by his homophobic comments.

      lol by u saying hot 97 im guessing u listen to drake wayne and nikki right?

    • That hobo in a snow globe

      how can you compare fif's music to MGK's at all MGK is high energy rap fif is slow and particulate

    • dentaldamboy

      Please, A$AP Rocky and Action Bronson both suck. Neither artist has a fanbase becuase they put out terrible music. Do you hear either one of these two on Hot 97 or Power 105? Do you see them on the iTunes or Amazon charts? Where are they on billboard. My fav artists are way more successful than these two clowns. Anyone who like either Action Bronson or A$AP Rocky loves mediocrity.

      Neither does ASAP Rocky. This guy must be 15 lisening to music from the 90's.
