|Subject: 50 Cent discusses Interscope Thu Aug 25, 2011 7:09 am|| |
With his ongoing beef with Interscope still, er, ongoing, 50 Cent has spoken to MTV to discuss some of his issues with the label.
As previously reported, having said his fifth studio album was 80% complete at the start of the year, he took to Twitter last month to tell fans not to expect that record any time soon, saying: “Man I’m not releasing an album… I can’t believe Interscope is this fucked up right now. I apologise to all my fans. I will work with other artists on their projects but I will not put out another album. They dropped the ball with me one time too many… they can’t seem to get it right when it comes to me”.
This week, he said that he has major problems with how the company has handled his latest record, ‘Black Magive’, which he says will be his last for the company. He told MTV: “To this point, I’ve recorded more than enough material for it. It’s interesting, I’ve taken more time than I usually take on this record. It’s actually my final requirement. My fifth album and the final requirement for Interscope. I had some difficulties with the actual system. There are people there that are afraid to lose their job; they’ve seen other people get fired. I think they’re afraid to make some decisions that need to be made right away, they just sit and look”.
“We’ve had some conversations communicated to develop plans for different things and it’s not actually executed in the time plan that we’ve created. And I get frustrated and I start doing things, like I put the record out. I condition my core audience to hear me a lot, because I perform at least two albums worth of material before I actually release the album. And when they don’t hear aggressive content, they turn their nose up at material, unless it’s already worked on radio”.
“I have issues with the actual company but any artists that doesn’t have issues with the company, they’re probably on one album and haven’t released a record. It doesn’t actually mean that I don’t like the company because all the success I’ve had in my career has been with Interscope records. It’s just a frustration at different points – like I had a song just go out and it was in their position, they were moving around to actually make the music video for it and then they go ‘ok, I don’t want that song no more’ because it’s been presented in the wrong way to the public”.
“Then people go ‘I don’t like this, I like this, I don’t know!’ – there’s no event to it. It’s not difficult when you’ve recorded 40 songs, it’s like so what? If you only have one song, you should just go jump off the song. Go get it”.
