G-Unit leader 50 Cent has announced the completion of his upcoming follow-up to 2009's Before I Self Destruct and said he is only one track away from having the entire project mastered.
Appearing on the "Ellen DeGeneres Show" this week, 50 broke the news about his LP.
"I finished my new album now," he revealed to television talk show host Ellen DeGeneres. "I'm actually one song away from being done. I'm mixing the record. I'm excited...This summer [the fans] will have new music from me." (Rap-Up)
Earlier this month, rapper Soulja Boy Tell Em revealed his involvement on the project.
"We were in California [last month] and 50 played his whole album, what he got so far," Soulja said in an interview. "He was asking me for some beats, so I played some beats, gave him some beats. He's got some tight beats from me too. I left him like five beats in California and he's been recording on them...That's true. He has some soul and he has people singin' the different hooks...But he's smart though. It's still 50, but it's on another level now. You know where he comes from...His album was kinda dope. I ain't gonna lie to you. That's my big bro and all that. I got love for him. He's got some good stuff on there." (Rap-Up)
Around mid-May, 50 called his solo album a rendition of 2003's Get Rich or Die Tryin'.
"I been working hard my album its almost done. I took my time now every body's gonna hear 2011 GET RICH OR DIE TRYING. The meanest sh*t," he tweeted May 11th. (50 Cent's Twitter)
He recently said there were plans to recruit G.O.O.D. Music's Kanye West for the album.
"The usual suspects. I want to get with Kanye on this album. See if we can come up with something," 50 revealed in an interview. "I didn't work with [Dr.] Dre yet. I wouldn't hold my project up for [Dre production], but I want to get in to do it. It's always a process. I also worked with Swizz Beatz on this one." (VIBE)
A release date has not yet been announced for 50 Cent's upcoming album.
