For the last year 50 Cent has attempted to get on the same page with the powers that be over at Interscope Records. Yesterday (January 2) his frustration with the label reached a boiling point.
In a series of tweets sent out to his 5.4 million followers, Fif expressed extreme disappointment with the whole situation.
"I have lost all the faith in the team I'm on. I having nothing left to say I will not be promoting my music," 50 wrote. "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. Ill be honest I don't think I'm gonna live much longer. That's why I started my street king movement. I want to mean more in other peoples lives."
Some people mistakenly took his comments about death as an indication that he was in a dark space mentally, but he quickly clarified the statement.
"To be conscious that life is short is not suicidal. I'm good if I die tonight I've taken care of the people who took care of me when I couldn't take care myself," he continued.
50 proved to any naysayers with his street album, The Big 10, that he can still deliver hit records with the best of them. Every video released from the project has soared to more than a million youtube hits. The clip for "Put Your Hands Up" is nearing 4 million views in less than one week.
All of this was done without the help of a label. 50 says that at this point in his career he wants to protect his legacy and inspire others.
Let's hope Interscope gets their act together and works with 50 to properly deliver his fifth studio album because the rap game really needs the G-Unit boss.
