Bishop Lamont Confirms He's Left Dr Dre's Aftermath Record Label


West Coast super lyricist Bishop Lamont has finally confirmed the rumors. He is no longer a part of Aftermath Records.

It was an amicable split with Dr Dre allowing Bishop to leave with 700 plus mastered songs. So expect to see his long awaited album "The Reformation" sometime in 2010.

Bishop sounded upbeat in a call placed into The All Out Show with Rude Jude and Lord Sear on Shade 45 radio yesterday (Saturday January 9th). He jokingly referred to himself as a prisoner who has finally been freed. After nearly five years signed with Dr Dre he felt it was just time to move on.

Bishop follows the departures in the last several years of artists like Joell Ortiz, Marsha Ambrosius, Dawn Robinson, King Tee and Rakim who were all at one point signed to Aftermath, but never released an album while there. Raekwon was supposed to release 'Only Built For Cuban Linx II'. through Aftermath in 2007, but eventually put it out through EMI in 2009.

In Bishop's situation, he seems to point the finger at Interscope Records as the underlying reason his project never saw the light of day. Saying he couldn't get the budget to shoot a video for his Dr Dre produced buzz single "Grow Up" as well as other songs.

The Aftermath roster currently looks something like this. 50 Cent, Eminem, Hayes and Slim Da Mobster (who is also signed to Shady Records & G-Unit Records).

Meanwhile, Bishop just left New York where his is talking to various labels about a new record deal.

Who didn't see that one coming? Dre don't put out music other than 50 & Em! Soon it's just going to be him & Em on that label. I don't know why anyone signs there.

The story title should be rewritten as:
How Jimmy f***** up another one of his artists.

If Dre is willing to sign off mastered music you created along with your release....then I believe its a win win situation. You learn from the best, around the best, and then able to fly off to make real paper. Don't blame interscope....get your political game up!
