After Olivia said yesterday that she was not dropped from G-Unit by 50 Cent, she actually asked to leave. Now 50 Cent himself has come forward to talk about Olivia leaving the label in 2007, not to mention how she cost him $2 million dollars in expenses. 50 says that Olivia used budgets and her money like she was some superstar, say like Beyonce or Rihanna.
"Yeah, that was a loss," Fif said about Olivia at G-Unit. "The problem you get with female solo artists is they look, their game is really small. So they look at it and say, it's Beyonce, Rihanna, Keyshia Cole but when you have an African American female solo artist, she sees where she fits immediately. Problem is, they spend financing like those artists at that , shepoint, having the set-up, the make-up artist, the stylist, those different things but when you don't have a record that connects fast enough, you'll accumulate a tab like a motherf*cker. And you look around like 'You spent $2 million on this sh*t and have me compromising myself at certain times.' See, I made sacrifices for other artists that I don't think people acknowledge them. Don't get f*cked up, when I'm doing the Get Rich Or Die Tryin' soundtrack, I know I'm supposed to be doing 'I'll Whip Your Head Boy,' and I'm doing 'If I Was Your Best Friend,' because I'm already two million in the hole on the actual project. I already spent all this paper moving around doing all this other sh*t that I gotta keep that in a position where I can potentially sell it."
