Problems with Shady Records

In late spring/early summer 2005, an independently distributed street DVD was released showing Jadakiss apparently discussing the over-hyped 50 Cent/Jadakiss/Fat Joe quarrel begun by remarks made by 50 Cent in his song "Piggy Bank," off his second album, The Massacre. Supposedly, Green Lantern leaked information to Jadakiss about the G-Unit camp's tactics, and was advising the D-Block rapper as to his next move. After this footage was released to the streets, Green Lantern left Shady Records. Reports conflict as to the status of Green Lantern's departure from Shady — 50 Cent has said in interviews that he was fired, while Green Lantern has stated that he stepped down, not wanting to create tension between 50 Cent and Eminem. He also left the Shade 45 Sirius radio channel, as well as leaving the label. The Alchemist, Mobb Deep's affiliate has replaced Green Lantern for the Shady Records 2005 Anger Management Tour.
