News: 50 Cent parts company with Shady/Aftermath for new deal with UMG
One of most successful signings in hip hop history came to an end today as 50 announced he’s moving on from Shady Records, which he released his six-times platinum debut 2003 album Get Rich or Die Trying album under.
“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,” Curtis said in relation to his new move in music… “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.”
It seems there’s no bad blood between 50 and Em, as he also had something to say on the issue…
“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.”
50 Cent’s new album, “Animal Ambition,” is due for release in early June! Until then, here’s a legendary link up which definitely helped set off something huge!
