In a radio interview, 50 Cent has denied rumors that Lil Kim is signed to G-Unit. He said, “She’s not actually signed to G-Unit. We didn’t even have discussions about that. I heard it, I heard people say it too. It was just like, there was no reason to give confirmation for something that didn’t actually happen at all. Like, when people say Shawty Lo is signed to G-Unit, they think that he’s actually signed an artist deal directly to G-Unit when the project that we’re doing is a lot bigger. It’s a joint venture.”
50 also spoke up his upcoming album — and said that Interscope Records is in dire need for the project to perform well.
He said, “My album should be out in November. It’s easy. Everybody, they prioritize my projects. When they don’t do things exactly when we had communication about it being done, I get frustrated.”
He continued, “Let me be honest with you. They need that record to sell more than I do. Not necessarily that [it’s dark over there], it’s just the systems itself unless you feel you’re going to make a new artist.”
