its been heavily rumoured that interscope has dropped the following acts due to poor performance.


- lloyd banks
- mobb deep
- olivia
- cashis
- hot rod
- tony yayo
- spider-loc
- obie trice
- stat quo
- young buck
- m.o.p.
- busta
-marsha ambroshius (floetry)
- styles p
- jadakiss
- d12


this doesnt mean g-unit/shady will be dropped, just those artists supposedly. iovine is apparently tired of investing money in their failing projects. if you caught the interview with 50, em, banks, yayo and cashis on 106 and park, 50 said 'jimmy iovine thinks im oversaturating the market', which only further fuels the rumour. 50 was acting weird throughout the interview, cutting people off, moving awkwardly, mean muggin the host, looking worried at the audience (in other words really insecure). eminem looked like he was real spaced out, and mad at the end when 50 dissed fat joe. the others hardly got to say anything. something is definately up over at interscope. here are the 2 parts to the interview.

and is it a coincidence that 80% of the artists on the list are G-Unit affiliated. The one who made this is a G-Unit hater and added Styles and Jada to make it more credible.
Plus, Styles has been pushed back a houdred times by Interscope. So they first dont let him drop and then fire him because of low sales. Stupid. Im not hating on your thread, thanks for the news but that shit sounds really fake!

it came from digitaldruglord from allhihop, a guy who is rumoured to be just blaze himself. he knows people, he told nearly everything about the game and nases 'why you hate the game' way before it leaked, he was even givign us lyrics. the guy also seems to know irv is making major moves but more on the pop side of things. so who knows, it does sound quite far fetched, but this dude has been right before. also, someone on bws, i think it was game, sent out a bulletin laughing at g-unit saying theyve been dropped :unsure: . in regards to your lloyd banks not flopping, even if he went 3 times plat, it can still be a flop. it all depends on how much money is being put into these projects by interscope. obviously they were expecting those albums to do much better than that, therefore it can be classified as a flop, cos they not making any money back.

I live in germany and I didnt see any kind of promotion for Lloyd banks's album but maybe its just because I dont leave in the US. But I think Interscoop knew he would only sell that much and didnt put a big budget on the promotion. But maybe I'm wrong.

It can be classified as a flop but I think ya habe been eavily influenced by The Game's "Soundscan" because there's maybe 10 rappers who did 250.000 units in 2006. In comparaison to his first album's sale its a flop but he sold as much as diddy did, and Diddy is an international superstar. I think Interscope reached the break-even point by selling 250.00 units. But like you said it depends on the money they spent on promotion, productions etc.....
But lets say its a flop:eazy:
