50 Cent Leaves Interscope (For Real); Tony Yayo Quits Music

g-unit

50 Cent has had some not-too-kind words for his label, Interscope Records, for some time now as his Street King Immortal album got pushed back like LeBron’s hairline. Well, that’s not a problem for Fif anymore. It was announced today (February 20) that the rapper will be parting ways with the House that Jimmy Built and inking a new deal with indie distributor Caroline (a division of Capital Music Group via Universal). The first release from the new pact will be 50’s Animal Ambition LP due June 3rd.

While Eminem offered kind words in the prepared press release, over on Instagram (h/t RD), Tony Yayo–who just last week posted photos of him in the studio with Lloyd Banks and Young Buck–told fans he’s “done with the music and the industry.”

“50 ain’t rocking with me and Banks the same,” he said. “I layed (sic) my life down for the unit but you live and you learn.”

Speakerheads, what do you think of all this? Turn up in the comments below.
