Naw, Im not buying that a.ssumption. I need proof because 50cent is TOO business minded and business orientated to allow Interscope to 360 his clothing line, hell NO!
And correct me if Im wrong, but Lupe has made it public he is in a 360 deal?
I know your caught up in the whole term of 360 deals but in a way they have always existed (not to the extent it exist now like labels getting show money or money from an artist acting in a movie, etc)
Interscope definately got/gets a a percentage off of gunit and shady clothing.
They didn't sign 50cent and gave him a million dollar bonus just because they knew he will sell them a bunch of records but they knew he was a brand an dhis name will bring revenue the label in other ways also. Merchandise(clothing) is one of them.
Just like State Property was Beanie Sigel's clothing line but Dame Dash recieved a % from that too. Bad example but you get the picture.
50cent also delt with label issues also and he made more money for interscope 938274892173894 times more than Lupe for Atlantic. It's just the nature of the buisness.
So I'll say this again he's like co founder to 1st and 15 right? He got a bunch of producers too. He can record a couple of records not using Atlantic 's money and drop a lil mixtape for the fans like Wiz just did. And I'm pretty sure Wiz and Lupe's contract are identical so what's the excuse here?
