50 Cent: I met with Jimmy Iovine and he’s not angry with me. He has a closer relationship with Dre. Me and Em are like Cain and Abel. You can figure out which one is the bad one. I get the bad guy hat because I’ll execute without their knowledge, because I can make the deal on my own. Em can too, but he has no interest in it.
That sounds like the same reason you would criticize Game or Yung Buck.
Let me explain something to you: If it was up to me there would be G-Unit South. Young Buck would be running that. I told him to run with that. When I did that, it was for him to present himself as a bigger artist to the Southern community.
Game—I wish nothing but the best for Game. As far as Black Wall Street is concerned, he did that prematurely. Then he turned around and told me to kiss his ass. If you can interpret that as me trying to keep them under my wing, that’s just a fucked-up interpretation.
Full Interview: Vibe
TMZ caught up with Dr. Dre in front of Boa Steakhouse in Hollywood Tuesday night and asked him out 50 Cent’s recent rant on Twitter where he wrote that both Dre and Jimmy Iovine were upset with him.
The legendary producer denied knowing anything about the Tweets that jokingly suggested that 50 would not appear on Dre’s Detox album.
50′s reason for the speculation comes from the fact that he’s set to release his Sleek by 50 Cent wireless headphones, going up against Dre’s popular Beats by Dr. Dre headphone line.
Dre added that he had “never heard of his headphones” leading the public to draw their own conclusion about his sincerity.
Is he really disconnected or is he just not threatened by the less popular product?
Earlier this evening, 50 Cent took to his Twitter account expressing some issues going on with Jimmy Iovine & Dr. Dre over at Interscope Records. Fif claims that his to bosses have issues with his recent new business venture, the Sleek By 50 audio line which he believes will lead to him being left off Dr. Dre’s Detox album. That isn’t it, he posed a question possibly revealing that a track exists going at the two which would really would be a twist within the Shady/G-Unit/Aftermath camp.
Jimmy Iovine and Dre mad at me cause I’m doing Sleek By 50.
I guess I’m not going to be on Detox Lol
I’m a little hurt Jimmy and Dre feel like that but f*ck it. I’m focused I
got a surprise for everybody this go round.
Would you faint if I told you I just wrote a verse about Jimmy and Dre.
Oh my god this is hard.
This shit gonna kill.
Em gonna have a heart attack when he hear this sh*t damn lol
Pretty interesting for two reasons, one I wondered how Dre & Jimmy felt about 50 becoming the competition when he launched his Sleek Audio line. Second I found it somewhat weird that Fif wasn’t on Eminem’s Recovery album.
