Is 50 Cent looking to expand G-Unit Records?

30 Oct

50 Cent IIA few years ago, it appeared that 50 Cent had big plans for his G-Unit Records. At the time, he had the full support and attention of Jimmy Iovine and Interscope Records. Of course, this was all before the release of Curtis.

In the works was a G-Unit West to be headed by Spider Loc and G-Unit South to be headed by Young Buck. The G-Unit South was even ready to sign Lil’ Scrappy, but the flop of 50’s album put all of these plans on hold. It would have taken a lot of Interscope’s money to make all of this work out. Since 50 Cent no longer made big money, the label was not going to spend big money.

It has been two years since the release of 50 Cent’s Curtis. As far as time goes, it has been a while since the album. However, that does not change the hard feelings between 50 Cent and Jimmy Iovine. Everyone insists that there is nothing going on, but 50 seems more distant from even Eminem and Dr. Dre by the day.

On top of all of that, the only G-Unit artist that is still signed to Interscope Records is 50 Cent, himself. All of the artists that are signed to G-Unit Records are no longer working with Interscope and 50 Cent is ready to release his last album in his current deal with the label. A few years ago, rumors began to circulate about other labels being interested in his services.

These rumors are not as abundant as they once were, but there are many labels that are interested in signing 50 Cent and G-Unit Records. One still has to believe that 50 wants to expand his label into all areas of hip hop because there is more money in it for him, the CEO. If he signs with another label after he is done with his current deal, they may fund these projects.
