50 Cent left Shady Records/Aftermath and Interscope in Feb. for freedom. In a interview with MTV News, 50 expounded on his recent Forbes intertiew where he said  “There’s no artist that has a marketing budget supporting what they’re actually doing that doesn’t have Beats headphones in the actual visual to support that brand, that company.” He told MTV that Interscope Turned into Beats Records.

“Not that there wasn’t a whole lot of support, but just an actual fear factor created from the aura of respect that Jimmy [Iovine] has within the Interscope system,” says 50 Cent. “When you see Interscope turn into Beats Records, where everyone that you see is actually marketing Beats headphones — you don’t even see a music video without Beats headphones in it.”
