G-Unit Records Leaves Interscope; Signs With EMI

In a move that every hip-hop enthusiast saw coming, 50 Cent has jumped ship from Interscope and taken his G-Unit imprint to EMI. The discontent between 50 and Interscope can be traced back to 2007, when he infamously destroyed flatscreen TV’s at their offices in a fit of rage because he felt they weren’t handling his new album Curtis appropriately.

50 Cent Trashed Interscope Office Photos

These are allegedly the pictures of 50 Cent’s smashed up office. 50 is rumored to have flown into a rage after discovering the video for his Robin Thicke-assisted single ‘Follow My Lead’ had been leaked to the Net before it’s October debut.

Now that the ink is dry with EMI, G-Unit plans to release Lloyd Banks’ third album Hunger For More 2 on November 23rd, and Tony Yayo’s untitled sophomore album in early 2011. 

While this story itself isn’t terribly exciting, the implications it holds are a little more juicy…
50 Cent is still signed to Interscope as a solo artist, does this mean he’ll jump ship after he releases his next album? Will his relationship with Dr. Dre and Eminem suffer as a result?
Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo have been using Interscope as an excuse for years, claiming the label didn’t properly promote them. Will they return to commercial success now that they’re on EMI?

 “I sat down with probably about four or five labels,” Shaty Lo said. “The best situation I think I like is I had a meeting with 50 Cent and G-Unit. I left New York, and we had a good six or seven-hour meeting. I think it went well. I’m just waiting on his attorneys to get with my attorneys to make it concrete.”

Shawty Lo made a name for himself as a member of the group D4L. The quartet of rappers saw their stock rise from 2005 through 2006, when their single “Laffy Taffy” reached number one on Billboard magazine’s Hot 100 chart. Shawty Lo, D4L’s co-founder and acting CEO, was signed to a solo deal through Asylum/Warner. But he began fielding offers after parting ways with the label. In addition to himself, Shawty Lo says he oversees a sizeable group of artists.

“I feel like 50 is a hard worker,” Shawty Lo added. “He’s come through so much in the game. I feel like I’m a down South version. I’ve just been working hard...all I need is that machine behind me. Once I get that machine behind me, I don’t think anybody can work as hard as we can.”
