50 Cent Calls Def Jam ‘Stupid Motherf—ers’ for Mishandling Jeremih’s Album Release
50 Cent is a troll to a lot of music artists but this time he's trying to help one out. The "Candy Shop" rapper aired out his frustration against Def Jam over what he thinks is the label's mishandling of Jeremih's latest album, Late Nights.
"What Def Jam has done to Jeremih is so foul," read the Instagram post by Fifty. "They have dropped the ball in so many ways. They have his Album out at $18.99 I have never seen a album priced that high in 5 years. SMH STUPID MOTHERF------."
Without any warning, Jeremih's album was dropped last Friday (Dec. 4) after several delays from the label. The collection holds several bangers on it like the J. Cole-assisted "Planez," "Don't Tell Em," "Down on Me" and "Birthday Sex." It's unknown where 50 buys his music but Late Nights is being sold on Best Buy for $18.99.
However, fans have a number of alternative options to grab the album for a cheaper price. Late Night's clean version is on sale on iTunes for $11.99 while the explicit is listed at $9.99. Amazon.com also has it listed for less than $18.99 with a price tag of $13.99. Although It might be possible that Def Jam has since heeded his words and dropped the price elsewhere since the G-Unit leader posted it on Sunday (Dec. 6).
Either way Fifty has a knack for getting people talking and if this is his way of doing it -- it worked.
