50 cent 2014

Yesterday, rap mogul 50 Cent made it known that he has signed an exclusive worldwide distribution and services agreement with Caroline/Capitol/UMG, making him an independent artist for the first time in his career.

The 38-year-old has spent the last 12 years operating under Shady Records/Aftermath and Interscope, where he sold over 30 million albums, and garnered an impressive 13 Billboard Music Awards, 6 World Music Awards, 4 BET Awards, and 3 American Music Awards.

Dominic Pandiscia, President of Caroline, commented:

“We are thrilled to welcome 50 Cent and G-Unit to our family. 50 is simply one of the most accomplished and creative artists, and his plans for the future are as exciting and innovative as you can imagine. I deeply thank him for his belief in our team and what we can do to help support his creative vision in the years to come. I’d also like to thank everyone at Shady/Aftermath and Interscope, particularly Eminem and Dr. Dre, for offering their endorsement and support of our involvement with 50 Cent and G-Unit. They’ve done an incredible job these past 12 years, and we’ve got a great legacy of label partnership to build on.”

50 cent will release his first independent effort, Animal Ambition, on June 3.
