It is now being reported that the G-Unit General was quietly released from longtime label Interscope (at his “request”) last summer, and is now with Capitol/EMI.

According to Capitol/EMI Vice President of Urban Promotions, Craig Davis, the rapper -real name Curtis Jackson- is the latest to join the Capitol roster:
“Now I’m over at Capitol Records and got a great roster over at Capitol,” Davis said in an interview. “[We] got Snoop Dogg over there, got Anita Baker over there, Al Green over there, got LeToya Luckett over there, got Bobby Valentino over there. A really, really great roster there, Raekwon [too.] We just signed a 50 Cent deal over there….50 thought he needed to get out of the Interscope machine, he wanted to do a new change so he got his release from there, we were in negotiations with him and the deal just got signed very recently. And now we got 50 Cent on the label, I think we’ll probably have Lloyd Banks cut in his first cut and then 50’s gonna come out later on.”
