Soak up some game from 50 Cent discussing some real shit.

Entrepreneur and legendary Queens rapper, 50 Cent finally made his way to the Hot 97 Morning Show. Obviously there to promote his forthcoming Animal Ambition album as well as the upcoming Starz TV series, Power, Fiddy was questioned the state of NY hip-hop. Following his run 10 years ago with Get Rich or Die Tryin’ and The Massacre (both of which went Diamond worldwide), 50 explained his entrance into the game being blackballed and other artists not working with him initially forcing him to distance himself from the rest of the game.

That would segue into another elephant in the room regarding his current stance with Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks revealing he wanted the pair to use his momentum to build their own careers. Although he didn’t have anything bad to say about the two personally, he opened up about his childhood friend Yayo still appearing in music videos that were recently shot after Tony’s social media comments about the state of G-Unit. 50 would go onto also discuss Summer Jam and why its significant for him to still be part of the biggest hip-hop event of the year; especially this year with Nas touching the same stage.

Continue after the jump, to soak up more game from Fif discussing the infamous plane ride with him and Ja Rule, comparing his beef with Rick Ross to Nas and JAY Z, and a few uncomfortable discussions with street life that Hot 97 wasn’t ready for.

Album: Animal Ambition
Label: G-Unit Records
iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/smoke-feat.-trey-songz-single/id844277984

When was the last time you heard 50 Cent over Dr. Dre production? It’s been a while, right? The streak ends today now that his new single “Smoke” with Trey Songz surfaced. This is catered specifically for the radio and could really make a splash on the airwaves if his new label Caroline gets behind it.

So far there have been mixed reviews about Fif’s Animal Ambition album, but one thing you can’t deny is the flood of music he’s been serving the past few weeks. Whether you like it or not, the album is dropping nationwide on June 3.

50 Cent Says Interscope Transformed Itself Into “Beats by Dre Records”

Now that 50 Cent is off Interscope Records, he can actually say what he thinks without having label interfering. During his town hall meeting and sit down with MTV, Curtis was not afraid to throw a little jab at his former label. It’s not something that is out of pocket by any means (we’ve all noticed this strategy throughout the years), but he states Interscope Records has turned into Beats by Dre Records thanks to the marketing they’ve used to promote the headphones through their videos.

Considering Jimmy Iovine is an OG in the game and has a lot of pull out at IGA, it was easily done. Of course, this doesn’t mean Fif wasn’t frustrated when the label blurred his t-shirt/hat with the SMS Audio logo, though.

Expect to hear more of that classic 50 Cent shit talking ahead of his Animal Ambition album, due out online and nationwide on June 3. You know how Fif does.

Beats vs. SMS: Inside 50 Cent’s Headphone Dilemma

The big elephant in the room before 50 Cent’s Interscope departure was his SMS audio headphones rivaling the companies first party brand of Dre Beats headphones. Fiddy opened up directly calling Interscope “Beats Records,” explaining every artist at the major label has some tie to the headphone brand during audio rollouts.

There was already obvious tension between both sides, with SMS becoming a big success not only here in the states but internationally as a direct competitor. In the sit-down with Forbes editor Zack O’Malley Greenburg, 50 opens up revealing one of the final straws in his tenure with the record label was during his music video shoot for “My Life” with Eminem and Adam Levine back in 2012. During filming, 50 was not allowed to use his headphones in the video but decided to wear an SMS hat to get his point across. In the final edit, his cap was blurred out of the video and was the Trojan horse to him leaving the label.

Learn more in the clip after the jump, and stay tuned for the 50 takeover.

50 Cent Talks History With Steve Stoute

If you’ve seen the infamous picture of 50 Cent confronting Steve Stoute at Madison Square Garden recently, you would know it spoke a thousand words. Last night, 50 Cent sat down with MTV during a special Sirius XM town hall meeting and spoke on that exact occurrence. He paraphrased what he told Steve in that exact shot, except it was a bit more PG than what probably happened.

Fif also revealed that Stoute did not want him to sign with Eminem and Shady/Aftermath back in the day, somehow finding him at the Interscope offices before he went up to meet with Em. As you can gather through history, 50 didn’t take his advice and signed with him anyway, becoming the biggest rapper on the planet after the release of Get Rich Or Die Trying. He made the right decision.

Peep an excerpt of Curtis’ talk with Rob Markman below and if you want to catch more of their interview, they will be airing more segments on MTV RapFix Live tomorrow.

RELATED: 50 Cent – The Funeral [Music Video]

A decade plus and 30 million album sales later, Curtis ‘50 Cent’ Jackson has finally decided to head into the Interscope hall-of-fame and pursue other opportunities in his music career. Yesterday, reports surfaced that the legendary Queens rapper had left the label for Caroline & Capitol Records (both subsidiaries of the Universal Music Group who head Interscope).

He sat down with FORBES magazine to discuss the new venture deal with Universal, which he revealed is similar to Bryan “Birdman” Williams, for both distribution and promotional support. Along with his first album in over nearly 5 years, Animal Ambition confirmed for this June 3rd, he started the new campaign today with a visual coincidentally dubbed “The Funeral.”

After the jump, you can read all about how 50 used his relationships with Eminem and Dr. Dre to maneuver out of a deal he still owed one last album; and not having to front any money, in comparison to JAY Z’s infamous $5 million buyout last year for the Magna Carta Holy Grail.
