50 Cent Speaks On His Fifth Album, Dr. Dre's "Detox"
Fif sounds off on Interscope Records, claiming that they need his album to be a hit more than he does.
Despite the label drama with Interscope Records, 50 Cent is confident that his upcoming fifth album will drop in November. During an interview with the Rickey Smiley Morning show, Fif explained that he’s got nothing to worry about in terms of the album being successful, and that it’s the label who’s worried about posting big numbers.
“My album’s going to be out in November. It’s easy. Everybody, they’re prioritizing my project. When they don’t do things exactly when we had communication about it being done, I get frustrated,” he said. “Let me be honest with you. They need that record to sell more than I do. Not necessarily that, it’s just the systems itself.”
“Look, unless you feel like going to make a new artist, you already shot the Em gun twice. And then you’ve got Dre, Dre’s project’s going to come. He’s got some heat. The Detox record, it will prove to be satisfying when they actually get to it. The things they put out wouldn’t be my choices off of it, but the things that I heard in the studio made me excited,” he continued. “Dre got material in there that reflects Chronic. If you like that record at all... To me, the ‘I Need a Doctor’ was an Em record and not a Dr. Dre joint. It’s cool.”
