NEW YORK — Marc Ecko Enterprises last week confirmed that it will shed Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson’s G-Unit brand after a four-year partnership. According to a statement, the company is exploring “transitioning this brand to a different apparel company in the coming months.” MEE also confirmed that it laid off nearly 20 employees as part of a “consolidation in staffing.” G-Unit president Paul Boyea is also no longer with the company.
MEE’s vice-president of corporate communications, Laurie Baker, declined to comment beyond the statement. 50 Cent could not be reached by presstime.
