50 Cent Continues To Wage War With Interscope, Via Twitter
50 Cent has employed his Twitter account many times to both drum up controversy and air out his frustrations. Today (January 2), the G-Unit general tweeted to his legion of followers that he may no longer focus on music, and even predicted that he doesn’t think he’ll live much longer.
After squabbling with Interscope Records last year regarding his upcoming fifth studio, a New Year’s Eve Twitter rant from 50 threatened more free releases, such as the recent Big 10 mixtape, if the album doesn’t get the green light from label head Jimmy Iovine. “Ok I need a record deal jimmy iovine, call me early tomorrow or I’m putting out another mix tape,” tweeted 50 Cent on Saturday (December 31, 2011).
It appears 50 Cent didn’t have that conversation with Iovine, tweeting this afternoon, “I have lost all the faith in the team I’m on. I having nothing left to say I will not be promoting my music.” He continued with a cryptic tweet, “Ill be honest I don’t think I’m gonna live much longer. I want to mean more in other peoples lives.”
Today’s 50 Cent outburst appears to be inspired by an unfinished leak of the Jeremih-assisted lead single “Girls Go Wild”– released ahead of schedule according to Fif. “Man interscope put out the single art saying its coming out on the 31st but its not coming out. I’m not putting my album out till we are all on the same page,” tweeted 50 last month.
The radio-friendly “Girls Go Wild” officially dropped earlier today, via MySpace, with an upcoming video helmed by director Colin Tilley awaiting a release.
Will 50 Cent stay true to his word or will he cave?
