In support of his new album, Black Magic, 50 recently talked about its concept.
"My Black Magic album, I've been listening to a lot of different kinds of music. I just want to create something that's outta the box," 50 told radio host Tim Westwood. "It ain't the same style, same kinda music. I'm using different song formats. I'll write a rap song in a sequence of a different kind of record...To write it in a different format, instead of writing it the way the traditional rap record is written, it's to experiment with different things. It's still hip-hop music, still 50 Cent content, it's just written in a different way..." (Tim Westwood)
Last month, the rapper announced that a new album was in the works.
"I actually recorded three songs," Fif revealed to interviewer Jonas Pettersen. "I had this idea, I went to a nightclub, afterparty, and it was a different kind of music going on there a little while before I actually got there. You know they play your music when you come, but the music they played before, they started playing material I created, which was more uptempo, more dance...Black Magic project, I'm excited about it. It has a different vibe, I won't allow myself to be placed in a box where I can only do one style or do one kind of music...If they can understand how I enjoy different genres of music, for the people who have various tastes, they'll really like it."
