(antiMusic) While 50 Cent is heading into a promised retirement after Kanye West outsells him this week, it looks like Eminem is coming out of his rumored retirement. And Eminem made the announcement during a Fiddy radio interview. How’s that for upstaging? Of course, Half a Buck is now backtracking on his promise.
New York radio station Hot 97 DJ Angie Martinez had quite the show on Wednesday as Fiddy trashed his record label and Eminem made a surprise call in to the station during the interview to announce he is working on a new CD.
“It feels good right now, the energy of the label. For a while, I didn’t want to go back to the studio,” Eminem said. “I went through some personal things. I’m coming out of those personal things.”
Meanwhile, Fiddy blames his record label for his inability to outsell Kanye West and broke his retirement pledge in the next breath. “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,” He said according to Contact Music. “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.”
In very very rare occurrence we will back up 50 Cent’s claim. At least a little bit. We can attest to the label partially failing to promote the CD since they ignored our request for a review copy of the disc. However, Kanye’s publicist ignored our request too, but did send a press release over about a month ago about his CD. Feel free to forward this story to both publicists. We would but we deleted them from our address book.
