However, following the lack of promotion for his last album led to him moving the G-Unit label from the longtime home, Interscope, to EMI Records.br /br /While G-Unit Records was moved to EMI, 50 Cent was still contracted by Interscope Records. Owing the label one more album, 50 Cent ended up falling out with Dr. Dre. There had been rumors of issues between the two for years. But, after 50 Cent launched his own headphone line, these issues came to a head.br /br /50 Cent maintains he and Dr. Dre are now on good terms and that he will be on Dre’s next single, “The Psycho.” With a new collaboration and a new single, 50 Cent was finally able to come out with a new single, “Outlaw.” The song is the lead single to his often delayed untitled fifth studio album, which 50 Cent says will finally be released right before Thanksgiving in November.br /br /Last November, 50 Cent toyed with the idea of releasing a sequel to his 2009 album, emBefore I Self Destruct/em, which was also an acclaimed film. While discussing his fifth studio album, 50 Cent said he would also be releasing emBefore I Self Destruct 2/em. However, the sequel to his 2009 release will come after the release of his untitled fifth studio album. Over the next few months, 50 Cent will reveal the title of his upcoming album and release more singles.div class=”blogger-post-footer”div class=”separator” style=”clear: both; text-align: center;”

Rappers turned Executives #10: Rick Ross

By The Hip Hop Writer
Hip Hop Vibe Staff Writer

The ascension of Rick Ross from a buzzing rapper from the South into a true boss was missed by many. His high-profile feud with 50 Cent helped him become one of rap’s most popular figures. Rick Ross has definitely used this to his advantage.

During the time of his feud with 50 Cent, Rick Ross had launched his Maybach Music record label. In addition to his record label, Ross had also launched his Luxury Tax clothing line. Even rappers with no deals have record labels and clothing lines in today’s time.

However, Rick Ross managed to take Maybach Music to a high level towards the end of last year. Becoming a true mogul, Ross siged Wale, Meek Mill, Pill, and Teedra Moses. Rick Ross still is not done expanding the size of his label, as DMX revealed he is interested in adding him to the roster.

Last summer, there were also rumors of Rick Ross considering bringing the Luxury Tax clothing line back and if that were to happen, Ross would truly rise to mogul status in the game. As of 2011, Rick Ross is one of the top ten rappers turned executives.

Hip Hop Vibe’s Top Ten Rappers turned Executives

By The Hip Hop Writerbr /Hip Hop Vibe Staff Writerbr /br /Hip hop has gone a long way from simply being a hobby for the urban youth. Over the past few decades, hip hop has proven to be a viable genre, becoming one of the biggest. Initially, the major record labels were the primary people profiting off hip hop. These industry veterans were soon replaced by the Russell Simmons-type businessmen of the hip hop genre and then the rappers, themselves, took control of the business.br /br /There are many rappers in the game who have gone from having buzz to becoming dominant to now being the heads of corporate giants. Among the names are Jay-Z and 50 Cent, but there are many more and Hip Hop Vibe will take a deep look at these rappers who have built their brands into companies. Each rapper has a unique story to tell and it will all be posted here.br /br /Beginning on June 20, 2011, Hip Hop Vibe will chronicle the top ten rappers who have turned executives, based on their status of 2011.div class=”blogger-post-footer”div class=”separator” style=”clear: both; text-align: center;”
