It is no surprise that 50 Cent has been unhappy with his current record label. 50 has made this clear via his official Twitter account over the past couple of weeks. The rapper is prepping his 5th and final album in his contract with Interscope Records and some wonder if it might be his last on the label.
In an interview with MTV, 50 said the following concerning if he would resign: “I don’t know, It will all be clear in the negotiations following me turning this actual album in. And, of course, the performance and how they actually treat the work will determine whether you still want to stay in that position or not.”
Last week, the G-Unit head honcho went on a Twitter rant and vented his frustration about his current situation. The Queens rapper took matters into his own hands when he released the first single, Outlaw, for his new album Black Magic.
“It’s not necessarily [Dr.] Dre or [chairman] Jimmy [Iovine]; it’s more the guys that they pass the responsibilities on to,” said 50. “It takes longer for people, because they’ll be like, ‘OK, we’re gonna do this and we’re gonna do that,’ and the building will start having those conversations, but they’re not actually moving at that point.”
50 has said that he wouldn’t mind staying at Interscope but he’s also not opposed to a change in scenery.
The story is sure to develop further in the next couple of weeks.

As the rap career of Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson continues to slowly fizzle into obscurity, the rapper continues to leave his footprints in the movie industry as he is making the transition into also becoming an actor.
Alongside Randall Emmett, Jackson has begun work on his next film, titled “Things Fall Apart”, which was produced and stars the rapper/actor.
The script was penned by 50 and Brian Miller and will be directed by Mario Van Peebles.
Unlike the films “Before I Self Destruct”, “Get Rich Or Die Tryin” or most other films associated with Jackson, this one won’t provide as much focus on the aspect of violence as Jackson will star as a football running back.
Known for his own personal tragedies in life, 50′s character will face his trials in life during his senior year in college.
Under his Cheetah Vision Films banner, the film is set to have production handled under the imprint. Cheetah Vision recently wrapped up “The Gun” which stars Jackson and Val Kilmer.
Clearly becoming more enthusiastic about making film, Jackson spoke with Daily Variety on the process in comparison to making a record.
“You have 90 minutes and 120 pages, compared with three minutes for a song,” Jackson noted. “I’ve become very passionate about making films.”
With films such as “Righteous Kill” and “Home Of The Brave” under his belt in supporting roles and upcoming roles in “Twelve” and “Jekyll and Hyde”, Jackson is surely inching his way out of music and submerging himself behind the silver screen.
