Striking while the iron was hot, 50 Cent used Interscope Records to ensure he would never have to worry about money again. If 50 Cent never released another studio album, he has more than enough business ventures to keep himself successful. While even 50 has admitted he never has to rap again to be successful, he still does have the urge to come back and record.
Since 2007, 50 Cent has had a very public feud with Interscope Records. Following the disappointing sales of Curtis, 50 Cent has been vocal about being upset with his label. When his Before I Self Destruct album failed to even sell 500,000 copies, 50 Cent made plans to leave the label. Before the end of 2010, 50 Cent had a business relationship with EMI Records.
Recently, 50 Cent announced he lost all faith in Interscope Records and he would not be promoting his next album with the label. Instead, 50 Cent said he would be backing his independent releases, such as The Big 10. However, 50 Cent eventually offered an apology, stating he did not want to ruin his relationship with Jimmy Iovine.
50 Cent talked, more in-depth, about his situation with Interscope Records, downplaying any serious anger. For months, 50 Cent said he has been writing this new album. After heavy criticism, 50 Cent is crafting a classic album and he cannot wait for the fans to hear his new work. But, the team around him is not putting in the same type of effort he is. 50 Cent said it is disappointing to give so much of himself for this new album and to then see how indifferent his team is about the situation.
