50 Cent Airs Out Interscope, Announces New Single

50 Cent is having problems with his label again. In a string of tweets posted earlier this morning (June 16), Fif voiced his frustration with Interscope Records, complaining about their lackluster treatment of his long awaited forthcoming album, Black Magic.

“Ok I tried to be cool with my record company,” he wrote. “I went to the meeting [and] talk[ed] to everyone and shit feels like [they’re] moving in slow motion. I’m sorry to announce I will not be releasing a new album this year if we don’t get on the same page.”

This news comes as a disappointment to many fans, but it is not completely unexpected. Even though the G-Unit general announced that he was one song away from completing his album on The Ellen DeGeneres Show just last May, he still hasn’t released a single.

Shortly after he announced the delay, disappointed Twitter followers took to the Internet, pleading for new music. And it appears 50 heard them. Around 2 p.m. EST, 50 tweeted: “Ok fuck it I’m putting the first song off my new album out tonight.”

It is unclear whether Interscope will be directly involved.

While word of a single is a relief to many, the album’s release date is still unclear. Fans are anxious for the next 50 album. His last LP, Before I Self Destruct, came out in 2009. On Twitter 50 joked about the long wait: “I’m on that [Dr.] DRE shit boy, guess when my sh*t coming out WHEN I FEEL LIKE IT. LMAO. [sic]
