Rapper 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, has stepped up his on-going feud with Interscope Records by threatening to withhold his new album and leak Dr. Dre’s next single.
“Man I’m not releasing an album,” the 36-year-old G-Unit founder tweeted earlier this week. “I can’t believe Interscope is this (expletive) up right now. I apologize to all my fans.I will work with other artists on their projects but I will not put out another album. They dropped the ball with me one time too many.”
Reports say that 50 is angry at the label for not giving him the same attention as his mentor and label partner Dr. Dre and also for leaking one of his songs, “I’m On It,” which mysteriously made its way onto the Internet early Wednesday morning.
“I don’t know how I can record 41 song for my album and the one song I give interscope leaks But I don’t care its good music,” Jackson posted.
In retaliation, he once again took to Twitter and voiced a threat to leak Dre’s next single, “Psycho” from his album “Detox.”
“I LOVE DRE but I’m putting his next single psycho out tomorrow at 2:00,” 50 wrote, adding later, “Your gonna love it it’s a big song I just don’t think it deserves a great set up sense they can’t seem to get it right when it comes to me.”
Fiddy apparently cooled down after his “rage-tweet,” however, as less than 24 hours later he changed his tune, tweeting, “I wouldn’t leak dre’s record he has done nothing but help me in my career.”
