I guess 50 Cent ain’t rockin’ with Interscope the same either. After 12 years of being apart of the Shady Aftermath/Interscope brand, 50 cent his taking his talents to Capital Records and he’s taking G-unit with him. A few weeks ago, a hashtag on Twitter was surfaced titled, #Free50Cent, to get him off his contract with Interscope because he felt that Interscope was holding him back.

Now that the rapper is signed Caroline, the Independent Services division of Capitol Music Group owned by Universal, he plans on dropping his new album, Animal Ambition which drops June 3rd. The project will be available to be pre-ordered March 18th and will include two new tracks for anyone who purchases it.

Comments have been made by the labels and 50 Cent himself about the switch.

50 Cent:

“I have had great success to date with Shady/Aftermath/Interscope and I’d like to thank Eminem and Dr. Dre for giving me an incredible opportunity. I’ve learned so much from them through the years. I am excited to enter this new era where I can carry out my creative vision.”

Eminem:

“Both myself and Shady Records are grateful to have had the chance to play a part in 50′s career. Shady simply would not be what it is without 50 Cent. I’ve developed a great friendship with 50 over the years, and that’s not going to change. We know 50 will have success in his new situation, and we remain supporters of both him and G-Unit.”

Steve Berman, Vice Chairman of Interscope/Geffen/A&M:

“50 Cent is, and always will be, a marquee artist for us at Interscope/Geffen/A&M. We respect his decision to pursue this new venture and the next chapter in his career, and wish him nothing but the best. He will always be a part of our family.”

Caroline President, Dominic Pandiscia:

“We are thrilled to welcome 50 Cent and G-Unit to our family. 50 is simply one of the most accomplished and creative artists, and his plans for the future are as exciting and innovative as you can imagine. I deeply thank him for his belief in our team and what we can do to help support his creative vision in the years to come. I’d also like to thank everyone at Shady/Aftermath and Interscope, particularly Eminem and Dr. Dre, for offering their endorsement and support of our involvement with 50 Cent and G-Unit. They’ve done an incredible job these past 12 years, and we’ve got a great legacy of label partnership to build on.”
