50 Cent angry at record label, threatens to leak Dr. Dre's next single

Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

50 Cent–the same 50 who owned hip-hop less than a decade ago with both party starters and thugged-out cuts–can’t get his Interscope record label to back his forthcoming album.

The rhymer took to Twitter to express his displeasure and even threatened to pull the plug on the album altogether. “I’m not releasing a album,” he wrote Wednesday. “I can’t believe Interscope is this f—ed up right now. I apologize to all my fans.”

Obviously mad he’s not getting the same attention as his label mate and mentor Dr. Dre’s, he then threatened to leak Dre’s next single from his oft-delayed set, Detox. “I love Dre,” he began. “But I’m putting his next single psycho out tomorrow at 2:00.”

“You’re gonna love it. It’s a big song,” he continued.” I just don’t think it deserves a great setup since they can’t seem to get it right when it comes to me.” Is 50 right to even hint that he’ll be this defiant? No. It’s such a childish, jealous act. Who in their right mind would think that this would be the way to make anyone excited about their music?

What he might be better off doing is leaking a good song off of his own album. If he’s got any hit records left in the chamber, that would provide the momentum needed to get him a release date and promo plan. His tired Twitter rant just makes him look like an artist on the brink of being irrelevant.

What do you guys think of 50’s social network tirade? Good move? Think he’ll actually leak Dre’s record? Let us know.
