Jul 5 - 50 Cent Tells G-Unit The Free Ride Is Over
 

 
The free ride is over at 50 Cent's G-Unit Records.

The rap mogul has confessed he was overgenerous with artists on his label. In fact, Fitty spent $8.5 million of his own money to take a lot of the rappers on his most recent tour so that they could bring their entourages - and so that everyone could travel, as he says, "comfortably."

Not only that, he'd hand out hundreds of thousands of dollars to them at a time just for the asking, Sacha Jenkins writes in the new issue of XXL magazine. "Whether I got to give them $500,000 or $300,000 ... Just 'cause they want $300,000 more to make what they [are] doing at the time comfortable. Like, 'yo, I want to get this new place over here.' "

Sure, 50's got plenty of do-re-mi: His albums "Get Rich or Die Tryin' " and "The Massacre" sold 20 million copies combined. And though his album "curtis" is delayed till September, he's getting a payday playing a boxer in the Nicolas Cage movie "The Dance," and a drug dealer in "Righteous k!ll" with Robert De Niro and Al Pacino. And there are the clothing and sneaker lines - and at least $100 million more he stands to make now that coca-cola has bought Glaceau, which owns Fitty's Formula 50 Vitamin Water. But still, he called a meeting and told the artists at his label that the free ride was over.

"Laze was there as representation of M.O.P., Havoc and Prodigy," he told the hip-hop mag. "Banks, Buck. Spider was on the phone. Olivia was there. Sha Money was there. I broke it down. I told them I wouldn't be a.ssisting them financially anymore. Pretty much I was telling them I wouldn't be there. [In the past] they'd make a lot of money and spend a lot of money and have me there to fix it."

There was another problem. "I looked around the room, and I was the only person with G-Unit sneakers on. But they were being paid," he adds. "It had become the norm for the check to come, but they were no longer wearing the clothes." image

Still, 50 lives in the largest mansion in connecticut - Mike Tyson's former spread. He moved there from a basement room in his grandmother's house in Queens, where, in a visit beautifully shot by Ben Watts, 50 ruminates: "When I come back here ... it's like my feet are on the ground."

I don't blame him. I get the feeling from all the interviews that he's the only one who works hard. The rest are just cruisin. image image

if hes givin them money he should be tellin them to invest in somethin

he probly didnt tell any of them to invest some of their money in the vitamin water

i think 50 is to the point where he just wants 2 focus on himself and everyone else do them


i remember reading an article on dame dash a couple years ago and he said he would give the artists money but not for clothes or a car he would tell them to invest it in somethin that can make them money for the future

g unit will fall apart ..... its evidently clear that the only reason they stayed a float for this long is because he gave an arm and a leg to try and help those hopeless dudes ..


now that he realized they have no talent .... its good news to hear 50s putting sh*t right ....

and him delaying the album gives him the opportunity to put some thought into the album ..... loss the g unit sh*t was built up ...

hes gona turn a new page ....


it took busta a REALLY long time to drop the flipmode sh*t ...

atleast 50s quick ... hopefully he starts making good music ...
