Jun 12 - 50 Cent's Album May Never Come Out
 

 

Music industry insiders were shocked a few weeks ago when Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson announced that the release of his third studio album Curtis would be pushed back three months. The official explanation for the delay was that it was a "necessary course of action ... to ensure the album's simultaneous worldwide release."

But one of the insiders at Interscope Records exposed the real deal on what happened. According to the insider, record company execs want 50 Cent to re-record at least five new tracks for the album. The insider explains, "The public didn't respond well to the first two singles [Amusement Park and Straight to the Bank] and people here got freaked out ... [One top executive] wants to make sure that there's at least one hit on the album. And he wasn't convinced by what he heard."

There's one big problem with this idea though. 50 Cent is refusing to do any more tracks unless Interscope coughs up significantly more money. The insider tells, "In [50]'s mind he's done with Curtis and he's moved on to [his next album] - which happens to be his last under contract [with Interscope]." Our snitch continues, "He's asking for an additional seven figures just to get him back in the studio."

And it looks like a showdown is brewing between 50 Cent and his record label. "Right now everyone's still trying to stay clam, but the lawyers are getting involved - and you know what that means ... If it were anyone else [besides 50 Cent], I'd say that this whole thing could be worked out. But right now, I can't even begin to predict what's going to happen with that album."

Why is the source calling his source a SNITCH? WTF? Yo a.ss would have no news to report if it wasn't for the source dumbass!!!!

50 probably realized he has no controversy and that his songs don't hold any weight like before, they both suck! and he knows that. I don't hear them on the radio like Candyshop and Wanksta.

Those singles are very wack and the album wouldn't do well on the strength of those singles. The record company is suprisingly right in this case.

50 cent has to fulfill his album obligations so he will finish the album, then put out a greatest hits and be done with it.

The rec execs have to know that the album is gonna do less sales than any of his other albums....


In this new climate.... how many cats' 3rd album sells more than his 1st? You oversaturate the market with albums, soundtracks, official mixtapes, street mixtapes, and "leaked" material.... the music buying public (what's left of it) is gonna get tired of you.


My advice to execs is to just keep dude happy.... there is something really wrong with that ni**a. Seriously, 50 would retire abruptly just to prove a point. Y'all know his a.ss would. They need to keep him happy so that he'll do singles with their up-and-coming whack artists.

This makes sense... cause I wasn't buying that whole, "We don't have enough CDs made to service the international audience" trash. Interscope is one of the largest record companies under one of the largest music conglomerates in the world (Universal)... and they're trying to have people believe that they can't produce a few million extra CDs for the international release over the course of more than a month and a half... riiiiiight...
