50 Cent Slams Interscope For Poor Album Sales

Rapper 50 Cent has slammed Interscope Records for failing to adequately promote his album “Curtis,” accusing his record label of “dropping the ball” in his chart battle against Kanye West. Fiddy – real name Curtis Jackson – released his new LP on Tuesday (Sept. 11), the same day as West’s Graduation – but the Stronger star is already outselling 50 Cent by almost double, according to Nielson Soundscan. Speaking to radio host Angie Martinez on New York radio station Hot 97 on Wednesday (Sept. 12), 50 Cent says, “To be honest the process of selling this record hasn’t been fun. I’m happy with the performance, but I’m not happy with the set up. We had conference calls and after we created this plan, nobody actually had a plan. “It was the label. They’re dropping the ball all over the place. I’ll release my next album and then I’m a free agent.” West’s “Graduation” day one sale was at 437,000 copies to 50’s “Curtis” at 310,000. West is on pace to sell about 575,000 to 700,000 its first week, while 50 Cent is on track to do 550,000, according to Billboard magazine.
