50 Cent will continue his journey in music without the help of Eminem, Dr. Dre, and Interscope Records.
50 Cent is no longer with Eminem’s Shady Records. 50’s new album “Animal Ambition” will be through Caroline/Capitol/UMG.
50 Cent on departing from his Shady/Aftermath/Intercope deal:
“I have had great success to date with Shady/Aftermath/Interscope and I’d like to thank Eminem and Dr. Dre for giving me an incredible opportunity. I’ve learned so much from them through the years. I am excited to enter this new era where I can carry out my creative vision.”
Eminem on 50 Cent leaving his label:
“Both myself and Shady Records are grateful to have had the chance to play a part in 50′s career. Shady simply would not be what it is without 50 Cent. I’ve developed a great friendship with 50 over the years, and that’s not going to change. We know 50 will have success in his new situation, and we remain supporters of both him and G-Unit.”
Steve Berman, Vice Chairman of Interscope/Geffen/A&M:
“50 Cent is, and always will be, a marquee artist for us at Interscope/Geffen/A&M. We respect his decision to pursue this new venture and the next chapter in his career, and wish him nothing but the best. He will always be a part of our family.”
