G-Unit leader 50 Cent has officially announced plans to tease fans with the first single off his latest solo album since 2009's Before I Self Destruct.
Although he did not announce an exact date, 50 said the track would debut sometime this week.
"I'm putting my first single off my new album out this week Nothing but heat.," he tweeted Monday (April 18). (50 Cent's Twitter)
Last week, 50 hinted at an initiative to drop a film and new album on the same date.
"I'm writing another movie. Ill put it out the same day as my new album. I started last night," 50 tweeted Thursday (April 14).
"I have two ideas what do you think about a film based on war angel ?"
"I'm gonna make it 10 times better then before I self destruct that was my first time writing and directing" (50 Cent's Twitter)
Last January, 50 revealed plans to recruit Eminem, Lil Kim, Lloyd Banks and more artists for his next solo album.
50 Cent stormed Sundance over the weekend to announce his latest film ventures. While there, he also shared some other exciting news, revealing that he's reuniting with Eminem for his next album. "I just flew from Detroit. I'm working with Em on my new album," 50 told a reporter during the Park City festival. The hip-hop mogul has already collaborated with an impressive cast for his fifthstudio album including Lil' Kim, Akon, Swizz Beatz, Busta Rhymes, and Lloyd Banks. (Rap-Up)
In November, 50 spoke on the significance of dropping a perfect follow-up to 2009's Before I Self Destruct.
"What [fans] are hearing are just my ideas," Fif said in an interview. "This is my Detox album, it may take ten years and you gonna wait on it until it comes but when it do come, it'll be perfect. I recorded 20 songs to a whole different album concept before I put that on the side and said I wanna do this, what I'm doing now. I'ma write until I feel like I have something perfect. I feel like music marks time and it's important to put out the 'right' sound for that 'right' moment. Like my Curtis album, people said my Curtis album wasn't good and it had 'Ayo Technology,' number one record on the album. It had 'I Get Money,' 'I Still Kill' featuring Akon, Robin Thicke, so many hit records on the actual album, I'm like, 'What are you listening to?' But I guess I look at it and say it's timing...There's nobody in hip-hop that possesses the ability to do what I do. I'm more exciting than these people. I genuinely believe that..." (MTV)
