50 Cent Speaks On His Relationship w/ Jay-Z & Not Losing His Headphones Deal!


After doing shows alongside Jay-Z and even appearing on a few tracks together, it seems there is a clashing of egos between the Roc Nation head and 50 Cent.

In a recent interview with MTV UK, 50 clears up speculation that there is any “friendship” between the two.

“Me and Jay will use each other,” says Fifty. “We don’t have those kinds of relationships. “We are in the same business. We are not necessarily friends. We don’t call each other for no reason.”

50 Cent makes it clear that he has nothing personal against Jay-Z himself but it seems as pride has gotten in the way of further collaborations.

“They don’t pick up the phone and call me,” he says.

Full Story: MTV UK

In big business news TV Goods Inc is clearing up the press release that went out last week from Sleek Audio LLC saying they terminated their deal with the rap mogul.

On Friday, Sleek Audio LLC issued a press release stating that it had terminated its relationship with 50 Cent and his companies and that Sleek had also terminated an earlier tri-party deal between Sleek, G-Unit LLC (a company owned by 50 Cent) and TV Goods. In actuality, it was G-Unit that terminated a Brand Licensing Agreement that it had entered into with Sleek, which termination automatically triggered the termination of the earlier announced tri-party agreement.

However, not long after the termination of the tri-party agreement, TV Goods and 50 Cent, via his affiliate company, SMS Audio, LLC, entered into a Term Sheet for the two parties to continue joint efforts to produce and distribute a direct response television infomercial to globally market a wireless over-the-ear headphone product offered or sold by SMS that is endorsed by and/or and bears the name of “50 Cent.” Sleek is not a party to that Term Sheet.

50 Cent, through his affiliate organizations, remains a significant shareholder of TV Goods, owning 7.5 million shares and 22.5 million warrants, which he, via his affiliate G-Unit, purchased for $750,000.

Basically 50 Cent just took Sleek Audio out the deal and is proceeding on without them.

Dr. Dre’s Subtle Attack On 50 Cent?!?

TMZ caught up with Dr. Dre in front of Boa Steakhouse in Hollywood Tuesday night and asked him out 50 Cent’s recent rant on Twitter where he wrote that both Dre and Jimmy Iovine were upset with him.

The legendary producer denied knowing anything about the Tweets that jokingly suggested that 50 would not appear on Dre’s Detox album.

50’s reason for the speculation comes from the fact that he’s set to release his Sleek by 50 Cent wireless headphones, going up against Dre’s popular Beats by Dr. Dre headphone line.

Dre added that he had “never heard of his headphones” leading the public to draw their own conclusion about his sincerity.

Is he really disconnected or is he just not threatened by the less popular product?

50 Cent Has His Own Headphones Coming Out Soon!

Check out this advert for 50 Cent’s Sleek by 50 Cent Platinum headphones which he debuted today at the CES convention in Las Vegas.  The $350 dollar headphones are also the first ever to utilize Wireless Hybrid technology.  Here is Fiddy’s statement on the new partnership:

“I know music and I’ve tried everything on the market as far as headphones go, but I wanted something different, something better that really pushed the envelope and gave all music fans a new way to listen to their favorite artists,” stated 50. “I was fortunate to find Sleek. The technology they employ and their knowledge of how we hear music truly blew me away. It was a perfect match. I didn’t want to create another pair of loud headphones. I wanted to create headphones that offer top-level performance, style, and new technology.”
