50 Cent Pledges Loyalty To Eminem Despite Possible Interscope Departue

As the February 4 release date of his Before I Self Destruct nears, the possibility of 50 Cent leaving the Shady/Aftermath/Interscope fold is becoming more of a reality. Still, even if his business relationship with Eminem comes to a halt with failed renegotiations, Fif said Curtis Jackson and Marshall Mathers will always be friends.

"I'm a loyal person. I'll always be down with Em, regardless to what the scenario is," 50 told MTV recently. "My album requirements will actually be done, and it'll be time to renegotiate. So if things work out, I'll end up staying with Em and Aftermath/Interscope. If the negotiation doesn't go right, then I'll go elsewhere. It won't change our relationship, because Em's so rich it doesn't matter. That's why he'll just take off for two or three years, and you don't hear nothing or see nothing from him and then he comes back, because he can afford to do that."

As reported earlier, Eminem will be releasing his highly anticapted Relapse album next year. The set will feature collaborations with 50 Cent and will be entirely produced by Dr. Dre.
