In 2014, 50 Cent left his home at Interscope Records to sign an independent distribution deal, and he’s pretty content with that decision. Fif and G-Unit will release their new EP, The Beast is G-Unit, on March 3 — and picking that date was entirely up to them.
“I enjoy the freedom of being able to set the date, and to know it’s coming out on that date, and everybody else can catch up,” Fif told MTV News on Thursday (Feb. 19).
This contrasts drastically with Lil Wayne’s current label situation, where he’s unable to release Tha Carter V, and has called himself a “prisoner” at Cash Money Records.
“I’m surprised to see Wayne going through that because of the relationship between him and Baby,” 50 admitted. But he doesn’t think this feud will last forever.
“I think it’ll work itself out,” he added. “I hate when personal things become public, because everyone speculates on things that they don’t really know about. I just know that they had a father and son relationship, and that could easily be something they communicate between the two of then, and resolve instead of having everybody else involved in it.”
He also had a warning for everyone who has a loud opinion on the matter:
“Be careful the things you say about the Wayne and Baby situation,” he said. “Because Baby will forgive Wayne for the things that he’s saying, and Wayne will forgive Baby for the things that’s he saying — but they may not forgive you.”
“The relationship has so much depth to it, that you shouldn’t even speak on it.”
Fair enough. Hear 50 explain his stance in the video above.
