50 Cent Addresses Video Leak; Says He’ll Beat Kanye West on September 11

50-cent.jpgIn an interview with MTV News, 50 Cent talks for the first time about the controversial video leak for his next single, “Follow My Lead,” which features Robin Thicke. As previously reported on XXLMag.com, on August 9, a digital copy of “Follow My Lead” leaked onto the Internet months before its intended release date. Soon after, it was reported by Hot 97 radio personality, Miss Info, that the G-Unit mogul was furious upon hearing the news, exploding in his Manhattan office, ripping a plasma TV of the wall and throwing his cell phone through a window. Now, 50 reveals the details behind his tirade. “I get [a] phone call and someone is telling me they seen the Robin Thicke video,” Curtis tells MTV News. “It was a friend of mine, but he’s from a different state. Soon as [the bootleggers] see something like that, they take the audio off the video, because they know it’s not supposed to be out. Then I start to get the phone calls ‘cause across the country the mix-show DJs start getting it. This record isn’t even supposed to be out.” In the interview, 50 also questions whether Interscope Records has their heads on straight. “When is a video leaked?,” 50 asked MTV News. “Like, I never even heard of that before! I’ve heard of a song leaked out — and then you can send cease-and-desist letters to the radio stations and try to calm it down, ‘cause ‘Ayo Technology’ leaked out. So it makes me feel like Interscope is just all over the place.”

Not lost in all of the controversy is 50’s upcoming battle with Kanye West, as both rappers will release their new albums on September 11. Contrary to previous reports, 50 tells MTV News he has no plans to stop rapping if ‘Ye outsells him on September 11, but he did refer to the Chi-Town rapper as a “worker bee,” while he considers himself a “boss.” “Look at how you are talking to me, like Kanye West is my equal right now,” 50 said. “That’s like me putting myself against Michael Jackson’s [album-release] date and then acting like, ‘Whoa, it’s a battle between 50 Cent and Michael Jackson,’ when Thriller sold 30 million records and 50 Cent’s biggest album sold 12 [million]. Don’t get lost in the hype. I’m gonna stick around and sell this record — and I will be No. 1 on September 11.”

    Kanye is better and he’ll be number 1….sorry your gimmicks are over Curtissssssssssssssssss

  • Rockcity

    Will somebody off this nigga already? God how many niggas talk this much shit? No wonder he got shot nine times.

  • Caine

    Dats real tho. How a big ass company like Interscope keep droppin da ball? Too many fumbles, and I’d fuckin snap too.

  • http://www.webmail.com I Run This….

    I dont believe that “leaking story”..Think about,the leak story is gonna create more interest for the actual song. How convinient 2 Interscope artists do a song together and it mystiriasly leaks. Keep in mind the other artist Is been struggling to sell records for years(Robin Thicke) and the other is arguably the biggest hip hop artist alive who happens to HAVE an album coming out soon. Do the maths, how many of you dbags are google that song(more marketing for both artists), the media is gonna go crazy(which keeps both artists names in the limelite) and when you finnaly find the song or the video on the net, chances are its a hot song and you gonna love it and BANG..CREATES MORE INTEREST FOR THE ALBUM AND ROBIN THICKE’S SALES SKY ROCKETS ASWELL..

  • ya diiiggg!!!!!!!!!

    First and Kanye and G.O.O.D Music will take over 50 ur done son kanye is number one so put down ur gun n get bak wit The Game n Hit Da Blunt hahahha

  • ALBANY4LIFE

    PEOPLE ON ALL THESE SITES ALWAYS SAY 50 TALKS TOO MUCH,BUT WHOSE FAULT IS THAT WHEN ALL THESE SITES,RADIO,AND TV STATIONS ARE ALWAYS ASKING HIM SHIT.ALL THESE OUTLETS KNOW THAT EVERYONE WHO SEES A 50 HEADLINE IS GONNA READ THAT SHIT WHETHER TO HATE OR SUPPORT.THEY ALWAYS BRING UP OTHER ARTISTS TO HIM KNOWING THAT HE WILL SAY HIS TRUE FEELINGS ABOUT THEM AND CONTROVERSY WILL ALWAYS SELL.TOO MANY ARTISTS WANT THE PUBLICITY OF A ‘DISS RECORD’,BUT THEN APOLOGIZE LATER THE SAME WEEK OR SAY THEY WERENT TRYIN TO DISS THAT PERSON TO BEGIN WITH.50 NEVER APOLOGIZES OR DODGES QUESTIONS ABOUT ARTISTS AND ALTHOUGH I DONT ALWAYS AGREE WITH HIS COMMENTS,I ALWAYS RESPECT HONESTY.INTERSCOPE FUCKED UP WITH THIS LEAK AND HE GOT A RIGHT TO AIR THEY ASSES OUT.

  • livefromthe225

    u can smell the fear all over this nigga…it wreaks of un-douched vagina…he keeps talking about how he’s gonna outsell ‘ye because he is literally scared to death of getting embarrassed on the 11th, which is why he recanted his statement about retiring if he gets outsold…meanwhile k west isn’t really saying much, sittin back in the pocket ALREADY KNOWING he has the better album, and relishing in Curtis’ free publicity of Graduation

  • KLETEWOOD

    50 is the COCKiest mother fucker in the game.

    Now I know why…Banks, Buck, Em, Dre, D12, Stat, Creek, Trice, Cashis, and the rest of his So called Record Label Homies don’t even roll with him.

    Who wants to kick it with a dude that always talks about himself. Like ROCKCITY says….no wonder he got shot 9 times.

    I aint tryin to hate…its the truth!

  • KATISI

    Bubu ur time is over this time. Kanye is going to beat you because he makes good music more than you and he deserves to sell more than you, fucken controversial hip hop artist who did not know he will be rich as you are now.
    How many singles have you been releasing in readiness of your flop ulbum, check kanye west how many singles has been released recently and how are doing on the chart.
    50 Katisi this time as Dr Dre said is a wrap, Kanye West is the real don, I can’t wait.
    G unit faggots kanye is on your neck.

  • Sauce: the Designated Hater

    I think 50 killing his promotion for this album. 50 kinda reminds me of Barry Bonds. He never dodges question but he gives fucked up answers! Here in H-town he says he’s not working with the good Doctor anymore on the radio. Truth is people like ‘Ye a lot more than this dude. You can’t diss a media giant like MTV and expect your shit to get good promo. MTV caters to a largely surburban audience (you know cats in Hollister shirts and flip flops) and the truth is there the ones who buy hip hop records. They tend not to like those who MTV doesn’t care for, believe me! If you don’t get play from them, it tends to trickle down to all media outlets. I think that Kanye (if he’s smart) will use everything 50 says against him. Plus, Interscope is large but Def Jam has a hell of a lot of pull in the industry. I wouldn’t be surprised if Def Jam Just gives away copies of ‘Ye’s albums just for bragging rights. Just my theory.

    Will you all just pay attention. This is marketing and promoting to the fullest.
    Kanye is gonna to sell more albums just
    by 50 cent getting asked the question about
    Kanye. 50 is not scared of Kanye going against him
    50 is actually helping him out with his sales.
    You guys must be lost that’s hating on 50 to really think that Kanye is gonna out sell 50.
    Kanye will do good numbers though. There’s only a few thats selling big right now, Hov, Jeezy, TI, 50 period. Kanye isn’t quite there yet. But this Marketing plan by Def Jam will put him there now, after Sept. 11th. And they’re using 50 to do. 50 and Jay know what’s really going on.

    50 will sell more because all the preteens and immature teenagers will buy his music earlier. He’s pandering to them on this record, and they are one of the biggest sets of disposable income. Kanye’s CD will probably be better, though, and have more impact. I’m a fan of both 50 and Kanye, and I probably won’t buy their third albums, even though I have all the 50 and Kanye stuff so far, because none of the songs sound good enough to buy.

    Im sorry. All you haters, come on. The Robert Thicke song is ill. I randomly ran into it thinking this was his released single. Dude, you can’t hate on the beat. Even the lyrics are semi decent.

    Dumbass, Ye’ has sold more than TI on each of his two releases. The first one did more than 2 million, maybe 3 and the second did at least 2 million. Correct me if I’m wrong, but has TI sold 2 million records off of 1 release yet?? Jeezy’s the same, he ain’t fucking with Ye’, so the only ones who’s selling are : 50, Ye’, and Hov (Presidential level), then TI and Jeezy (Secretarial level)!

  • RICHTHEIDIOT

    Yeah, 50 has his fan base, a fan base that’s been constantly dwindling album to album. It’s like in the mid 90′s when Master P had his loyal fan base, who bought every album that said No Limit. Those fools didn’t have to release a video, those idiots still bought the album. You saw that with ‘Beg for Mercy’, Banks, Bucks, and scrappy ass Yayo’s albums, now how much are these cats selling? 50 has become too POP. A garbage song with Timberlake (laughing) then another garbage song with Thicke (Laughing even louder). Amusement Park/Candy Shop/Magic Stick/21 Questions etc..50 will still do 2 million, but not 5 million, hell, maybe not 3 million until 2009.

    Ay yo(no pun intended…lol) I ain’t tryna come off like I’m on the man’s dick but, Fif IS a better rapper than Kanye…for proof, listen to some of Fifty OLD joints and freestyles….that MC is still in 50, it’s just that the money is of MORE concern than who’s the “best” rapper…..and Nas said it best on “Ether”…..IT AIN’T NO BEST…..so all you Lil Jay fans(Lil Wayne) can fall back….I don’t even wanna get started on THAT dude but, the dude 50 is a real gem dropper…..like he said, if him and Michael Jackson was to drop same day and Mike’s biggest LP is 30 mill DOMESTICALLY and Fif’s biggest LP DOMESTICALLY is at 7 mill…..I mean, put 2 and 2 2GETHER…..and besides, Get Rich or Die Tryin’s first week sales were greater than College Dropout’s 1st week and of course The Massacre’s 1st week was better than Late’s(which was 900,000)….and yeah, Ereal these broke ass dudes is gone continue to hate while they STILL cop Fif’s album like he wants ;)

    QUANTITY DOES NOT EQUAL QUALITY!!!!!!! 50 CAN HAVE ALL YA’LL FAKE HIP HOP HEADS IN THE ‘BURBS THINKING THAT NUMBERS MEAN THAT YOU’RE THE BETTER ARTIST…BUT NO, REAL HIP HOP IS QUALITY MUSIC…AND THOSE SHITTY SINGLES 50 BEEN COMING WITH TELLS ME JUST HOW SHITTY HIS ALBUM WILL PROBABLY BE…NUMBERS OR NOT. KANYE MAY NOT SELL AS MANY UNITS (HELL, BETWEEN VITAMIN WATER AND 50 BUYING HIS OWN UNITS, HE WILL LIKELY COME IN FIRST) BUT YE’S ALBUM WILL DEFINITELY BE 100 TIMES BETTER IN QUALITY!!!

    no matter how much of an asshole he comes off to be does he not make a valid point? and stupid list made by people who claim that they love hip hop acutally tear hip hop down. this list would kill hip hop if it was dead

    u know whats sad. it seems like i’ve heard lots of people talking and getting more hyped about going out to the store on 9-11 to cop ye’s and/or mr. jackson’s albums then ever, EVER going to vote in any election. thats why we got that asshole in the white house now and gas is a fa-fillion dollars. man, isnt it time for us to start getting our priorities straight????

  • Young Dangerous

    Yo I’m Coppin’ Kanye’s Album. i liked 50′s “How to Rob” Shit. but now i think he’s more in to makin poppy club songs for money. kanye’s doin it cause of love for the game. listen to the lyrics. kanye put’s his heart, mind, body, and soul into his music. not alot of rap artist’s do that these days. maybe 50′s beats will be ok, but if the lyrics don’t match the mood of the song, waz the point? plus i see almost everyone is rootin’ fo’ kanye’s album. So i guess maybe kanye won’t lose to 50. it’s all up to the pulic and their way of thinkin’. One
