No amount of seasonal goodwill could ease tensions between 50 Cent and his label Interscope, it seems, with the rapper returning to the internet just before New Year to get one final diss of the Universal Music division on the record before 2012 began.

It’s still not clear if and when Fiddy’s fifth studio album will surface, but the rapper told fans he was “disgusted” with the way his label has been treating him of late, that he had no plans to do any promo work if and when the companty did release his new album, and that he wanted to sign up to a new label.

50 tweeted: “My next album is great, it’s a shame the hardest people to work with were supposed to be on the same team with me. Music was so much fun for me, now the people and politics involved disgust me. I’m not doing any press for this album. I worked really hard on it, my music speaks for itself”.

He then added that, with ongoing delays on the official album, he was tempted to put out a free mixtape instead. Referencing the chief of Interscope, he continued: “OK, I need a record deal. Jimmy Iovine, call me early tomorrow or I’m putting out another mix tape. Anybody want to sign me? I’m a young hungry artist and I work harder then everybody in hip hop. Call me tomorrow”.
