50 Cent hat kürzlich seine Labelheimat Shady/Aftermath/Interscope verlassen.
Der Rapper unterschrieb einen Independent Deal bei dem Sub-Label Caroline von der Capitol Music Group, die wiederum zu Universal Music gehört.
Das erste Release unter dem neuen Label Caroline wird “Animal Ambition” sein und am 3. Juni 2014 erscheinen.
Caroline President Dominic Pandiscia sagte zum Deal mit 50 Cent: “We are thrilled to welcome 50 Cent and G-Unit to our family. 50 is simply one of the most accomplished and creative artists, and his plans for the future are as exciting and innovative as you can imagine. I deeply thank him for his belief in our team and what we can do to help support his creative vision in the years to come. I’d also like to thank everyone at Shady/Aftermath and Interscope, particularly Eminem and Dr. Dre, for offering their endorsement and support of our involvement with 50 Cent and G-Unit. They’ve done an incredible job these past 12 years, and we’ve got a great legacy of label partnership to build on.”
50 Cent kommentierte dies mit den Worten: “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. 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.”
Eminem hat gute Worte für den Rapper übrig: “Both myself and Shady Records are grateful to have had the chance to play a part in 50’s career. 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.”
Auch Steve Berman, Vice Chairman von Interscope/Geffen/A&M, hatte ebenfalls einige nette Worte übrig: “50 Cent is, and always will be, a marquee artist for us at Interscope/Geffen/A&M. We respect his decision to pursue this new venture and the next chapter in his career, and wish him nothing but the best. He will always be a part of our family.”
