50 Cent has a beef with his label.

Not happy with the way Interscope Records has been handling his yet-to-be-titled fifth studio LP, the "In Da Club" rapper has decided to cancel the upcoming release, claiming label execs "dropped the ball."

It probably isn't helping that his albums aren't selling like they used to.

"Man I'm not releasing a album," 50 Cent wrote on his Twitter page Wednesday. "I can't believe interscope is this f--ked up right now. I apologize to all my fans."

In a series of subsequent tweets, the hip-hopster elaborated on his future, which at this point doesn't seem to have Interscope in it.

"I will work with other artist on there projects but I will not put out another album," he tweeted. "They dropped the ball with me one time to many."

In a big pushback against his corporate overlord, 50 Cent announced he instead would put out "Psycho," the next single by longtime collaborator Dr. Dre off the latter's upcoming swan-song, Detox.

"Your gonna love it it's a big song," added Fiddy. "I just don't think it deserves a great set up sense they can't seem to get it right when it comes to me."

There was no immediate comment from Interscope.

According to Fiddy, what made him most unhappy was the fact that he recorded 41 tracks for his album and the one tune he gave Interscope, "I'm On It," ended up being leaked online.

"I hate when I can't present my music the way….I feel it should be," he complained. "But f--k it check out 'I'm ON IT.'"

Well, making yourself scare and threatening to retire is certainly one way to drum up interest in a fading music career.
