Irv Gotti recently sat down for an interview with Hot 107.9’s B High, where he spoke about blocking various record deals for 50 Cent.

Irv explained that he was “the hottest thing” when Fif was trying to get a record deal, and he made it clear to labels that he wasn’t messing with 50 Cent, leading them not to sign him. He went on to explain how his essential blackballing led to 50 Cent signing with Dr. Dre and Eminem, which Irv called a dream situation. Irv then said that he wishes he would’ve let one of the previous labels sign him because he thinks Fif’s career wouldn’t have popped off to the levels that it did.
