ARTICLE: 50 Cent Clears Up Twitter “Beef”

50 Cent went into renegade mode Thursday, blasting his label on Twitter and releasing his new single “Outlaw” independently of Interscope. Don’t get it twisted, however: The G-Unit General isn’t just acting off of emotion. This is all part of his plan to light a fire under the label in preparation of his fifth, yet-untitled album. (50 confirmed to MTV News that this is not the Black Magic album he had announced in 2010.)

On April 18, Fif announced via Twitter that he was going to be dropping a single from his new album, but never did. When MTV News caught up with him a few days later on the L.A. set of Nicole Scherzinger’s “Right There” video, 50 backtracked, saying that instead, he opted to work in conjunction with Interscope on the release.

“So I had the record I was ready to launch, and we sat down and everybody talked,” Fif told MTV News in an interview Friday (June 17). “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 [Interscope chairman] Jimmy [Iovine], 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 “Twitter stuff” the Southside Jamaica, Queens, rapper is referencing is when he charged on the social-networking site that Dre and Jimmy Iovine were “mad” because Fif announced that he was developing his own brand of high-end headphones to rival the Good Doctor’s Beats by Dre.

“We sat down, we cleared that up, me and Dre, and then we said, ‘Let’s just get back to the music and do what we do,’ ” Curtis said before revealing his and Dre’s next move. “Immediately after, we wrote a song together called ‘The Psycho’; it’s Dre’s next single.”

After making peace with his partners, it was 50′s intention to release his own single with his label’s support and have a record that would impact radio so he could perform at Hot 97′s annual Summer Jam concert at Giants Stadium in New Jersey. There was no single and, subsequently, no 50 Cent at the show, which took place June 5. “Why would I be going to Summer Jam to perform a bunch of feature songs?” the rapper asked rhetorically. “That’s not for me. I rather not be there than to go through that.”

Things took a turn Thursday when the MC tweeted: “Ok I tried to be cool with my record company. I went to the meeting talk to everyone and sh– feels like there moving in slow motion,” adding that he wouldn’t drop an album in 2011 unless Interscope got “on the same page.” Then he premiered his new song “Outlaw” later that evening in an effort to cause excitement for his upcoming LP, which will be his last on Interscope.

Though he is visibly concerned about how the rollout of his album is being handled, Fif wants to be clear about where he places the blame. “It’s not necessarily Dre or Jimmy; it’s more the guys that they pass the responsibilities onto. 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.”- mtvnews


Article: 50 Cent Explains Beefs With Diddy and Jadakiss, Promises New Album by ANDRES VASQUEZ


G-Unit’s General speaks on the state of his relationships with Jadakiss and Diddy and explains why he won’t release an album he’s completed.

50 Cent recently spoke on why he has an album in the vault that he will not release and why he has chosen to reconnect with former rivals. The head of G-Unit recently met with Funk Flex at Funk Flex Full Throttle, a new show on MTV. The inaugural episode featured 50, who also ensured fans that he is nearly finished with a new disc.

When asked about his work to mend relationships with former rivals, 50 said he felt it was necessary at times. He also added that certain beefs were never personal.

“Some of it is Hip Hop. It’s just the competitive nature of the art form. Like with Jadakiss’ situation, that was just Rap. I don’t have a reason [to beef]. When you look back at it, when two years go by, and you say, ‘Why don’t I like them?’ And you can’t remember why, then you know it’s Rap.”

This led to a discussion around Diddy, someone 50 has had words with in the past. Their feud began when he spoke about extorting Diddy on “How to Rob,” saying he’d “snatch Kim from Puff.” Later, their feud escalated when Fif said Diddy was not “biggin’ up his brother,” but added that he was only giving love to the Notorious B.I.G. as a form of “biggin’ up his bank.” He also compared the head of Bad Boy to a “bitch” in a separate interview. Diddy also shared his displeasure with 50 Cent by saying his “breath stinks,” adding that he’s “ashy” and that he’s “a sucker,” before calling him a “hating ass crab.” However, now it seems the two are on good terms.

“I’m not upset with [Diddy] at all,” he said smiling, adding that they speak on the phone from time to time. “He’ll call me like, ‘What’s the next move, playboy? Why I feel like you doing this?’ And I’m like, ‘Nah, nah, it ain’t nothin’.'”

Aside from rehabilitating relationships with Hip Hop peers, 50 has also been working on a lot of music. During his interview, he also added that he is presently working on a brand new album, one that will replace a disc that is already in the can.

“I’m working on a record now. I’m almost done,” he noted. “I recorded a whole album before this one that I kept…Because I want to make sure it’s completely up to my standards. I’m critiquing myself.”

Music news: Violator Management’s Chris Lighty Launches Demo Submission Site by SEAN RYON

Violator Records
The man behind 50 Cent and Diddy launches a new website for aspiring artists to share their demos.

Violator Management’s Chris Lighty has had a long career behind the scenes of the Hip Hop industry, managing mega-star artists like Diddy and 50 Cent. Now, the Bronx native is taking his expertise to the Internet with a new music demo submission website.

According to a recent article by the New York Daily News, Lighty and co-founder Michael Dizon recently launched PleaseListentoMyDemo.com. The site that allows up-and-coming artists to upload their music and have it heard by Lighty and his staff made up of A&Rs and other industry heavyweights.

Each song will cost a fee of $10 to upload, and the site will make the best songs available for the public to hear. Lighty says that the website was inspired by the successes of YouTube and television program “American Idol,” as well as the proliferation of free music downloads.

“We are in the Internet age,” said Lighty. “There are so many creative people out there. We are not reaching everybody. Just listen to the radio. It’s the same 15 artists all day everyday…We won’t Simon Cowell you out. We will give you feedback. If we like it or dislike it.”
