Report: 50 Cent Leaves Interscope; Signs With Capitol

50cent7 copyright aftermath records Report: 50 Cent Leaves Interscope; Signs With Capitol

Following the appalling sales of 50 Cent‘s ‘Before I Self-Destruct’ LP (which was certified Triple Foil), it is now being reported that the G-Unit General was quietly released from longtime label Interscope (at his “request”) last summer, and is now with Capitol/EMI.

Full story below…

According to Capitol/EMI Vice President of Urban Promotions, Craig Davis, the rapper -real name Curtis Jackson- is the latest to join the Capitol roster:

“Now I’m over at Capitol Records and got a great roster over at Capitol,” Davis said in an interview. “[We] got Snoop Dogg over there, got Anita Baker over there, Al Green over there, got LeToya Luckett over there, got Bobby Valentino over there. A really, really great roster there, Raekwon [too.] We just signed a 50 Cent deal over there….50 thought he needed to get out of the Interscope machine, he wanted to do a new change so he got his release from there, we were in negotiations with him and the deal just got signed very recently. And now we got 50 Cent on the label, I think we’ll probably have Lloyd Banks cut in his first cut and then 50’s gonna come out later on.” {Source}

Hmm. If true, one would have to seriously question the condition of 50’s business acumen. For, anyone who know’s the music industry knows that – as at writing – that label is in financial ruin and is effectively a sinking ship. Yet, then again, so is 50’s career. Harsh? Perhaps. True? Undoubtedly.

Randomness: Ja Rule. #thatisall.

    That’s the end of his career. Capitol hasn’t been a strong label since the days of MC Hammer. They have no idea how to promote urban acts. Lata 50.

    YEA, BUT WHEN UR WITH THE HOT LABEL LIKE INTERSCOPE ONLY THE HUGE ACTS GET PUSHED FROM MARKETING AND RADIO STANDPOINT. CENT PROLLY THOUGHT HE’S GETTING PUSHED OUT AND SQUEEZED WITH THE LEAST PROMO BUDGET SO HE OPTED OUT. SIMPLE AS THAT. BATTLE OF EGO’S AND MONEY SPENT. AT CAPITAL WITH NO NAMES HE’S THEIR BIGGEST URBAN ACT DESPITE THE CRAP FINANCIALS OF THE LABEL. AT INTERSCOPE HE’S NOTHING IN A SEA OF BIG EGOS.

    I don’t like 50 either but DAMN! why are ppl so harsh?

    Idk about a music career comeback but as long as he keeps making smart business moves and takes care of his money properly, he’s always be filthy rich.

    Look at all the Ritards on here, says a lot about you death eared, silly azz riho fans.

    Just because you read that capital was a sinking ship and 50 career was sinking also. You Riho sheep just went at it, you guy are mind less robots.

    ” God takes care of 50 cents.”

    And of course Last Homo on Earth would like Ja Rule, because he is a little short gadget , I meant f**#t like him. Ja Rule is not a round because he was perpetrating to be a manly rapper gangster, when in the real he was a f**#t, d#ck sucker rapping, just like whom _____ Homo on Earth!

    Riho fans go get a brain and maybe you can get a clue!

    Riho fans are a bunch of stupid c*** hoppers just like their princes pop tart.

    50 is no jarule…dude has a business head to him…he does not live off his music unlike the likes of jarule.. he has a new movie comming out which got lots of buzz coz of his weight loss and watch him release a diet book etc…dude is far from being irrelevant…

    he will still be rich even if he sells 50 cds…doubt he would move for nothing..am sure he got more from the deal if true like a stake etc…he is no fool honey!!! you can laugh at his music career but u cant at his business sense!!!

    @ Bluekid.., don’t get me wrong I sure love 50 for being a bro but that atittude of having a fight with just about everyone in the industry (Veterans) is what gets on my bloody nerves. It doesn’t work like that in the music industry just because just because you’ve just had a #1 album…..Keri Hilson(ring any bells)???

    ____________________________________________________________________

    Know comparison to Keri Hilson to 50 cents, Keri Hilson friction was a personal vendetta.

    50 cents is real, people where being killed in the industry and rubbed out with know question asked or know answers, answered.
    Do your homework in hip hop, song writers where being kill right out side of studios. The people you worship are not nice some are hard core murderers.

    Google Black boule rappers

    Yea! They hate 50 in the industry, because they are afraid, this guy is not a puppet and 50 is not a muppet, he is the real deal and that is what they are afraid of . They talk the, talk but 50 can walk the walk there is a difference.

    Do you see 50 holding up any of those devil signs??? NO!

    Jay Z said “who’s afraid of 50″ You is ni66a!

    50 cents just was putting thing straight and up front, fifty wasn’t a coward and he didn’t bow down to their azz. They hate 50, put he has his own personal machine behind him and he isn’t worried about some fake punk azz Ja rule wasn’t it.

    @ bluekid…well it appears I know nothing about what has been going on in the hip hop game yet do you condone someone coming out to say ‘ I will distroy someone elses carrier’ a good thing to emulate?? Becuase this is exactly what 50 said in one of his interviews. What was with NAS, KELIS ,BEYOUNCE and the rest???
    50 IMHO is a nasty piece of work that is currently eating his own words.
