Rap Daily: After announcing his difficulties with Interscope Records and its CEO Jimmy Iovine last week, superstar 50 Cent has been making the rounds as the topic of numerous headlines and stories.
The rapper recently dropped a new song “Outlaw,” and announced that his new album and headphones will be released this November.
50, who was said to be hard at work on his fifth studio album, said the following on Twitter last week: "I'm sorry to announce I will not be releasing a new album this year if we don't get on the same page.”
“We” meaning 50 and Interscope Records.
Later that day, he tweeted: "Ok f*ck it I'm putting the first song off my new album out tonight.” A few hours later, the song “Outlaw” was released to the world for free, to mostly positive acclaim.
Not long after, 50 and the label ended up meeting to "get on the same page."
On Friday, 50 spoke to MTV News and said "What happens is, there are a lot of people involved in my actual launch, because its three parties; it's Shady, then you got Aftermath, then you got Interscope, and then you got me on my end. So by the time we got to go sit down with Jimmy, we talked a little bit, and then I ended up having to go see Dre, because we had the little issue, the confusion about the Twitter stuff."
The recent meet-up with Dr. Dre produced more than just some common ground for the two titans.
They managed to create, write, and record what is said to be the next single off of Dre’s long-awaited, perpetually in-the-making, album, Detox.
The song, titled “The Psycho” (no relation to Before I Self Destruct’s “Psycho” with Eminem), could be hitting the airwaves any day now, or maybe not, when it comes to Detox, nothing is ever certain.
The most recent announcement regarding 50 came from the man himself when he tweeted on Sunday that his headphones and new album would both be getting released this November.
