50 Cent has signed his G-Unit Records to Interscope and intends to drop an album by the crew of the same name before years end.
“First I drop my album, and people pay attention,” 50 Cent said in a statement. “Now that I got their attention, I’m gonna drop the next s**t on them – the G-Unit s**t, both the label and the group. … I’m not leveling the competition, I’m destroying it.”
According to a press statement, 50 will develop and sign artists while the Jimmy Iovine-lead Interscope will distribute the controversial rappers releases.
On the business-tip, Iovine stated that he would work with 50 in everyway he could, besting the other offers the rapper had thrown at him.
“When you have an artist like 50 Cent, you want to be in business with him on every level — movies, video games, wherever he wants to go,” Iovine stated.
50 Cent continues to tour in support of his 4 million-and-counting opus, Get Rich Or Die Tryin.
