50 Cent explains that changes at Intersope are to blame for his new LP's delay, and expresses excitement over his first Young Jeezy feature.
50 Cent is getting ready to celebrate the 10th anniversary of his seminal album, Get Rich Or Die Tryin'. His initial plan to bring in the occasion was to deliver his overdue follow up to 2009'sÂ Before I Self Destructwithin the same month. 50 now reports that his fifth full length will no longer be dropping February 26th, and is now slated for a spring release, to which Fif credits to internal changes at Interscope.
When asked by MTV, 50 revealed the delay to be more about changes within the label than his own output. "Actually it's the system," he said. "It's a lot of adjustments being made there, obviously Christmas I think 35 people got let go.", the Queens rapper stated.
While 50 has often been harsh in his criticism towards his label, especially in the wake of delays or leaks of his music, he seems pretty level-headed about the situation. "It's a shift in whose responsibilities are what, so as fast as they get it together," he said. "I'm confident they'll put it together though, so it'll be out." 50 said, surprisingly optimistically.
While the date for his new album is still pending, 50 promises to deliver the video for his new single, "Major Distribution" with Snoop Dogg and Jeezy very soon. It's a song he's fairly excited about, particularly due it being his first collaboration with the Snowman. "Jeezy, that was overdue, me and Snoop had a relationship since '03," he said. "Having him work on this project it just fit, perfect timing."
