50 Cent has pulled the release of his new album.
The ‘In Da Club’ hitmaker claims problems with his record company, Interscope, have prevented him from being able to release the album – which had the working title ‘Black Magic’ – and vowed not to work with them again.
He tweeted: “Man I’m not releasing a album i can’t believe interscope is this f***ed up right now. I apologize to all my fans (sic).
“I will work with other artist on there projects but I will not put out another album. They dropped the ball with me one time to many (sic).”
50 had previously blasted the label for “moving in slow motion”, to get his fifth album released, writing last month: “My whole career iv been doing s**t and they have been playing catch up this is the last f**king album THEY BETTER WAKE UP AND WORK (sic).”
“I would rather not launch my album without a plan the whole system is executing. I don’t know why they play with me, they know how I get (sic).”
50 also added he is planning to leak Dr. Dre’s new single, ‘Psycho’, possibly in protest against Interscope, who Dre is also signed to.
He tweeted: “I LOVE DRE but I’m putting his next single psycho out tomorrow at 2:00 #SK. Your gonna love it its 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 (sic).”
Dr Dre’s latest album ‘Detox’ has long been delayed, but is rumoured to finally be released before the end of the year. Dre has yet to respond to 50’s plans.
