This is slightly surprising.

It’s a new year, and apparently, Queens rapper 50 Cent needs a new musical home. 50 announced he’s leaving his label of 12 years – Shady/Aftermath/Interscope Records.

The announcement comes two weeks after the 11th anniversary of his debut album Get Rich Or Die Tryin’. In a statement, 50 Cent says:

“I have had great success to date with Shady/Aftermath/Interscope and I’d like to thank Eminem and Dr. Dre for giving me an incredible opportunity. I’ve learned so much from them through the years. I am excited to enter this new era where I can carry out my creative vision.”

Eminem also released a statement that reads:

“Both myself and Shady Records are grateful to have had the chance to play a part in 50′s career. Shady simply would not be what it is without 50 Cent. I’ve developed a great friendship with 50 over the years, and that’s not going to change. We know 50 will have success in his new situation, and we remain supporters of both him and G-Unit.” 

50 will move his G-Unit label to Caroline, which is an independent division of Capitol Music Group/UMG. The 38-year-old rapper is currently gearing up to release his new album, Animal Ambition, which is due out June 3.
