50 Cent visited Houston’s 97.9 The Box, where he was asked about being blamed for the demise of G-Unit. He says that all of the artists have blamed him…before coming back to apologize.
“Yeah, I get that all the time. What’s ill is, when you’re in the seat, the driver’s seat, a lot of times, no, every time something goes wrong it’s your fault. If you ask artists why their career didn’t go the way they want, it’s the [fault of the] record label. See what I’m saying?” he said.
“I happened to become the record label; so all of those artists that were around and didn’t do exactly what they thought they were supposed to do, it’s my fault that it didn’t. They give it to me individually now, like it’s not the company, it’s him.”
Rapper OT Genasis also flopped on G-Unit but blew up after walking away from the label.
“I had him for a record,” said Fif. “After that record didn’t work he went and made a hit record … That’s why me and him have the best relationship ever. Because he was let go to go do that. And he went and made that hit and he made his money. The other people are upset because they felt like they coulda did it, ‘if you had did it for me. So it’s your fault you didn’t do it for me.’ I can’t make people buy records.”
