    Flex says he has 50 Cent's back but won't be playing Eminem or Dr Dre, stating "Interscope Records, nothin' is spinning…50, from what I hear, your deal is up at Interscope, we got you. I'd walk out that building after that…That Eminem album is coming Interscope, I take pride in how I'm gonna do this movement…Unfortunately, we're not gonna be able to play those Eminem and Dr. Dre records and I'm so sorry this is the way this has to go down with this guy's album coming. I want us all to be friends, but Nino is not a friend of ours. I will go on with this, Nino, you got 24 hours to fix yourself or this goes some place else, tomorrow…Nino is the only one I'm letting off today, tomorrow I'm teeing off on the whole team."
