After publicly stating his current dissatisfaction with Interscope Records and its president Jimmy Iovine last week, rapper 50 Cent has been making the rounds as the topic of numerous headlines and stories.
The rapper recently dropped a new song “Outlaw,” and announced that his new album and headphones will be released this November.
50, who was said to be hard at work on his fifth studio album, said the following on Twitter last week: “I’m sorry to announce I will not be releasing a new album this year if we don’t get on the same page.”
“We” meaning 50 and Interscope Records.
50 spoke to MTV News and said “What happens is, there are a lot of people involved in my actual launch, because its three parties; it’s Shady, then you got Aftermath, then you got Interscope, and then you got me on my end. So by the time we got to go sit down with Jimmy, we talked a little bit, and then I ended up having to go see Dre, because we had the little issue, the confusion about the Twitter stuff.”
The recent meet-up with Dr. Dre produced more than just some common ground for the two titans.
They managed to create, write, and record what is said to be the next single off of Dre’s long-awaited, perpetually in-the-making, album, Detox.
James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond appeared in Brooklyn federal court yesterday (June 21st), where he pleaded not guilty to a variety of charges stemming from an indictment accusing the mogul of distributing multiple kilos of cocaine.
Rosemond, who runs Czar Entertainment, was arrested yesterday in New York, after being a fugitive for over two weeks.
Due to his flight risk, a judge denied Rosemond bail and he is currently being housed at the Metropolitan Department Correctional (MDC) Facility in Brooklyn, New York.
When agents arrested him yesterday, Rosemond was carrying five BlackBerries, an iPad, two false drivers licenses and a fake passport, published reports said.
During the arrest, DEA agents found a plane ticket and learned that Rosemond was planning to leave the United States for the Bahamas on June 24th.
According to a new criminal complaint that was unsealed yesterday, Rosemond was dealing drugs as recent as May 11th.
A confidential witness named Winston Harris allowed agents monitor the mogul’s e-mails and even wore a wire during one of their alleged drug deals.
One of the correspondences reportedly shows Rosemond setting up a deal to sell over a kilo of cocaine in Brooklyn, but he couldn’t execute the deal, because he car was not working.
Rosemond is accused of being the leader of a large-scale narcotics trafficking organization, that dealt hundreds of kilos of cocaine since at least 2008.
Rosemond’s lawyer Jeffery Lichman vowed to fight the charges levied at the rap mogul, who is also being accused of helping to set up the murder of G-Unit associated Lowell “Lodi Mack” Fletcher.
Fletcher was shot and killed in the Bronx, apparently in retaliation for smacking Rosemond’s son in March of 2007.
“This indictment was built on the backs of witnesses that have been threatened and bribed by federal prosecutors,” Rosemond’s lawyer Jeffery Lichtman told The Wall Street Journal. “And I plan to expose all of it. If the government wants a fight, they’re going to get a fight.”
Ironically, James Rosemond is being housed in MDC, the same facility housing convicted murder, Dexter Isaac, who recently came forward with shocking allegations that Rosemond paid him to have Tupac Shakur beaten and robbed in November of 1994.
