50 Cent Leaves Shady Records, Aftermath Entertainment & Interscope Records

50 Cent and G-Unit reportedly sign exclusive worldwide distribution and services agreement with Caroline/Capitol/UMG.

50 Cent announced today (February 20) that he and G-Unit Records have signed an exclusive worldwide distribution and services agreement with Caroline/Capitol/UMG, according to The Sacramento Bee.

This marks 50 Cent's departure from Interscope Records, Aftermath Entertainment and Shady Records, where 50 Cent spent 12 years. His discography as a part of Shady/Aftermath/Interscope includes Get Rich or Die Tryin'The MassacreCurtis and Before I Self Destruct, all of which will continue to be marketed and sold by Shady/Aftermath/Interscope, according to the report. 

50 Cent, who is now an independent artist according to the Washington Post, thanks Dr. Dre and Eminem in a statement. Dr. Dre and Eminem run Aftermath Entertainment and Shady Records, respectively. 

"I have had great success to date with Shady/Aftermath/Interscope and I'd like to thank Eminem and Dr. Dre for giving me an incredible opportunity," 50 Cent said in a statement, as per Associated Press. "I've learned so much from them through the years. I am excited to enter this new era where I can carry out my creative vision."

In 2012, 50 Cent said he was unhappy with his label situation. "I have lost all faith in the team I’m on," he said. "I have nothing left to say I will not be promoting my music...I’m going to deliver this album then. I have a film I wrote to focus on I’m not upset I’m just convinced this is not how I want to remembered.”

    50 cent says he has been hoping to drop from the best rap label ever I think it's the other way around they were sick of him making no money that's why they allowed a release while owing an album he wouldnt have made the money back. Anyone who says Aftermath/Shady is dying you must be a youngin that dont know what you're talking about. Dre produced tupac, snoop and em so please sit back relax kids. Also get off this new weak crap you all think is so "hard" its just run around lines to confuse your small brains.

  • NEW 50 SONG ON THE FORBES WEBSITE

    Curtis 50 Cent Jackson spent much of his early life yearning for a record deal with one of the major labels. After a run with Universal-backed Interscope that began in 2003 and saw him sell over 30 million albums, hes spent much of the past few years itching to leave. Yesterday, he got his wish: hes departing the label that launched his career to forge ahead as an independent artist. He has signed a worldwide distribution deal with Caroline/Capitol/UMG for G-Unit Records and his own releases, beginning with Animal Ambition, due out on June 3rd. Its freedom to invest in your own ideas, he told FORBES in his first interview since the news broke. If ever I had a horse that I was betting on at the track, Id like to be the horse. Let it be me, goddammit, because Im going to run as hard as I can. He says his deal is structured similarly to Cash Moneys arrangement, which in which Bryan Birdman Williams label doles out a mere 7% of wholesale per album to Universal in exchange for distribution and support. In conjunction with Eminems Shady Records and Dr. Dres Aftermath label, Interscope will continue to release and market 50s lucrative back catalogue, including his 2003 multiplatinum opus, Get Rich or Die Tryin. 50 Cent is, and always will be, a marquee artist for us, said Steve Berman, Vice Chairman of Interscope/Geffen/A&M, in a press release. We respect his decision to pursue this new venture and the next chapter in his career, and wish him nothing but the best. He will always be a part of our family. The timing of 50s split with Interscope comes as a bit of a surprise, given that he still owed the label another album. Artists rarely get out of their deals early without paying some sort of feefive years ago, Jay Z famously bought back the last album he owed Universal for $5 million (and later sold it for $10 million)but 50 says he didnt have to fork over any cash. Im a special case and situation, he explains. Its also because of the leverage of having the strong relationships with Eminem and Dr. Dre. They dont want to me to be uncomfortable. They value our friendship to the point that they would never want [to jeopardize] it over that little bit of money. Added Eminem, in a statement: Ive developed a great friendship with 50 over the years, and thats not going to change. We know 50 will have success in his new situation, and we remain supporters of both him and G-Unit. Of course, another big reason the split between 50 Cent and Shady/Aftermath/Interscope has been amicable is that all the labels involved have the same parent company (If it wasnt all under the Universal umbrella, it wouldnt work, 50 admits). The move gives 50 greater flexibility to pursue the sort of unusual release tactics employed by some of his peers latelyfor example, Jay Zs agreement to release his last album via a Samsung mobile app in exchange for a guarantee that the company would buy 1 million copies at $5 apiece. It also allows 50 to dictate his own schedule for recording and releasing music videos. The latest example: he was able to offer FORBES the opportunity to debut the video for Funeral below. Its having the ability to do that versus, Its out of the question, he says. Now those options have opened up.

      A distribution deal is a legal agreement between one party and another, to handle distribution of a product. Recording contract-A recording contract (commonly called a record deal) is a legal agreement between a record label and a recording artist (or group), where the artist makes a record (or series of records) for the label to sell and promote. Artists under contract are normally only allowed to record for that label exclusively; guest appearances on other artists' records will carry a notice "By courtesy of (the name of the label)", and that label may receive a percentage of sales.

Simple, cut out all the industry people who want a piece of the action. Dude is paid so he could put together a home studio and hire a decent sound engineer. What is 50 afraid of?

    I bet this is 50's publicity stunt to get his album rolling. He knew he'd fuck the world up if he left Em and Dre's nest (like he was ever there since '03.) He doesn't really need them anyway, he can easily buy some Dre beats and Em verses. This shall be interesting to see if it actually was the label delaying his album or if it's just 50 to blame.

    Jimmy, Dre and Em have pimped out their employee long enough, they dont need him anymore or his dead label because they have J. Cole who is actually talented and gifted.

    Listen people, 50 did not get dropped, they just demoted him to a different department. Interscope/Aftermath/Shady/GUNIT are all under Universal Music Group. Caroline/Capital are also all under Universal Music group The fundamental difference is that Caroline/Capital functions more within the prototypical mechanisms of a major label with them doing the bulk of promotions, management, marketing, and other duties that serve to aid an artists in all aspects of releasing an album. Caroline/Capital will act as a distributor for GUnit to ship their product but all the footwork and groundwork will have to be done by GUnits personall staff. Sure you get more % off your albums but you work harder and you will sell less, I guess the bonus for most artists is the creative control you get.

When Meek release his next album it wont just be on MMG it will be on DreamChasers/MMG/Atlantic. LLoyd Banks and Tony Yayo released 3 solo albums on GUnit/Interscope and never got to get the percentage they would have gotten of they release those albums on YayoENT/GUnit/Interscope or BanksENT/GUnit/Interscope. Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo never even got a chance to get their percentages from Executive producing their own albums while they were on Interscope, Wale got Executive producer credits on his last album. You want to have your own label imprint and your own publishing company or else you will end up bitter and disgruntled with a stalled career like Tony Yayo.

      Lol, do your research next time before you say something outlandish like that. Tony Yayo has more money than any artist on MMG other than Rick Ross. Wale, Meek Mill, they're worth $6 million and $2 million respectively. Tony Yayo is worth $7 million. The BAWSE at MMG is worth $25 million... wow, Lloyd Banks is worth $15 million and he hasn't had a hit song in years. Either way, none of these guys are hurting financially.

    Kendrick Lamar and Game have more in common than being from Compton. Both rappers are signed to Interscope Records and, according to Suge Knight's latest interview, both are locked into "two of the worst deals in the industry." The always outspoken ex-music mogul shared his opinion on the subject of shady business deals during an appearance on The Arsenio Hall Show Tuesday (Feb. 18). "If you look at Interscope, the two guys from Compton got two of the worst deals in the industry," Knight said. He went on to outline exactly how many benefactors get paid from Game's label deal. "What people don't realize is Universal [Music Group] is the ship, then Aftermath get they cut, then G-Unit get they cut, then the guy who really have Game signed [gets a cut] then it came to Game." In Lamar's case, "the guy who put the deal together" gets a portion of the 26-year-old rapper's earnings in addition to Interscope and other label-related payees, Knight claimed. "In reality [it's] more slavery now than ever," he continued. "When you was a slave you like 's--t it's bad,' but it's worse when somebody makes you be a celebrity ... and you're thanking a person for like stabbing you in the back. Period."

    Caroline is one of those pseudo-indie labels that isn't really connected to hiphop in any way. I think he signed to them and avoided the more hiphop-ish indie labels because he doesn't want people to know he signed to one. Remember, this is the guy who was dissing everyone on koch (e1) and saying that it was "the [career] graveyard". Of course he's going to try and go to something people don't know about to try and hide his situation. lol 50 Cent is such a sad sad story. He went from being one of music's biggest stars, to a bum on an independent rock label. All of this because of his big mouth. I hope he has some great investments and is saving what money he has, because his career is done. I'm not impressed....

    50 belongs on an Indie he isnt popular enough to be on a major label, he isnt even hot enough to make it on a Schoolboy Q album.

      that wouldn't work how he gonna leave interscope and you expect them to cut him a check for a feature? ahah

      he obviously got dropped from Schoolboy Q's album because it's an interscope release and he just left the label. Its politics man.

    Rappers dont leave their label unless they finish out their contract, buy out their contract or they get dropped. 50Cent had one more album on his contract (his own words), but all his recent singles failed and his album kept getting pushed back so the label had no further use for him as an artist and let him go....

      Yo money you can't get dropped and go to another situation like that! If that was true all the other artist would do the same thing. He made a move that most can't do and still have Worldwide distribution nah b he just did a power move!

    We glad that we dropped 50. He is a pain in the ass and nobody in the rapgame likes him. 50 Cent is only good in dissing other rappers for no reason. Also we didnt want to release his new garbage album. We have no hard feeling because we made big money of 50's GRODT album and TM.

      dissing rappers for no reason???? truth is most of those rappers were jealous of him and took shots hoping to further their own careers!

    Caroline is one of those pseudo-indie labels that isn't really connected to hiphop in any way. I think he signed to them and avoided the more hiphop-ish indie labels because he doesn't want people to know he signed to one. Remember, this is the guy who was dissing everyone on koch (e1) and saying that it was "the [career] graveyard". Of course he's going to try and go to something people don't know about to try and hide his situation. lol 50 Cent is such a sad sad story. He went from being one of music's biggest stars, to a bum on an independent rock label. All of this because of his big mouth. I hope he has some great investments and is saving what money he has, because his career is done. I'm not impressed

    People don't realize when you sell 30 million records like Em and 50, etc the labels wont give you freedom. They tell you how the records gotta be, your singles, your features, your videos. Artists on Interscope like French Montana who only sell 150k don't have to worry about stuff like that because they are small fish in an ocean full of sharks and whales.

    • ETK

      when you go independant you have to cover a lot more things about the music you put out, and it comes outta your wallet too. 50 has been focusing on other shit the last few years, he wouldn't have had time to release anything. he probably only stayed on Shady a bit longer to reap benefits and get a single with Eminem or somethin

  • OoNo

    Well now he doesn't need anyone so he gonna put out whatever he want at will! So I guess Kidd Kidd, Paris, Pauly D or whoever he signs will get put out.

    50 Cent announced today that he has signed an exclusive worldwide distribution and services agreement with Caroline/Capitol/UMG. The superstar recording artist transitions to independent status after a successful twelve years at Shady/Aftermath/Interscope, during which time he sold more than 30 million albums. 50 Cent's highly successful catalog, including Get Rich or Die Tryin', The Massacre, Curtis and Before I Self Destruct, will continue to be marketed and released by Shady/Aftermath/Interscope. The artist's first album under the new agreement will be Animal Ambition, scheduled for release on June 3rd. Album pre-orders will begin on March 18th and fans will immediately receive two instant gratification tracks and the corresponding videos will premiere online. An additional song and video will launch each week leading up to the album's release. According to Caroline President Dominic Pandiscia, "We are thrilled to welcome 50 Cent and G-Unit to our family. 50 is simply one of the most accomplished and creative artists, and his plans for the future are as exciting and innovative as you can imagine. I deeply thank him for his belief in our team and what we can do to help support his creative vision in the years to come. I'd also like to thank everyone at Shady/Aftermath and Interscope, particularly Eminem and Dr. Dre, for offering their endorsement and support of our involvement with 50 Cent and G-Unit. They've done an incredible job these past 12 years, and we've got a great legacy of label partnership to build on." 50 Cent commented, "I have had great success to date with Shady/Aftermath/Interscope and I'd like to thank Eminem and Dr. Dre for giving me an incredible opportunity. I've learned so much from them through the years. I am excited to enter this new era where I can carry out my creative vision." Eminem stated, "Both myself and Shady Records are grateful to have had the chance to play a part in 50's career. Shady simply would not be what it is without 50 Cent. I've developed a great friendship with 50 over the years, and that's not going to change. We know 50 will have success in his new situation, and we remain supporters of both him and G-Unit." According to Steve Berman, Vice Chairman of Interscope/Geffen/A&M, "50 Cent is, and always will be, a marquee artist for us at Interscope/Geffen/A&M. We respect his decision to pursue this new venture and the next chapter in his career, and wish him nothing but the best. He will always be a part of our family."
