50 Cent has announced that he is leaving Shady/Aftermath/Interscope. He singed to an Independent distribution deal with Caroline/Capitol/UMG, where he will be dropping an album on June 3rd.
“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.” – 50 Cent
“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.” – Eminem
