G-Unit leader 50 Cent has provided fans with an update on his long-awaited Before I Self Destruct follow-up LP promising the solo project is finally completed.

Although 50 claims the LP is a go, he admits now comes time for the editing and mixing stage.

"I feel like I'm done with the album, I'm going through the mixing process," 50 revealed in an interview. "Music, for me, it marks time. I believe a classic is timing. I haven't made a song that I felt like wasn't up to standard, where you listen to it and say, 'This is garbage.' You just got to be in the mood for it, maybe. The timing might have been bad during the release for some of the actual songs but it's not necessarily a record that you say, 'OK, I can't listen to this. What is this? Turn it off,' because I make all of my music up to standard. If that's the case, the stuff I did for promotional purposes, for free, wouldn't be talked about like it's so good." (Shade 45)

In August, 50 opened up about his record label, Interscope, and struggles to put the project out through them.

"It's actually my final requirement. My fifth album and the final requirement for Interscope. I had some difficulties with the actual system," 50 explained in an interview. "There are people there that are afraid to lose their job -- they've seen other people get fired. I think they're afraid to make some decisions that need to be made right away, they just sit and look...We've had some conversations communicated to develop plans for different things and it's not actually executed in the time plan that we've created. And I get frustrated and I start doing things, like I put the record out." (MTV UK)

A few weeks prior, 50 publicly aired out his Interscope frustrations.

"Man I'm not releasing a album i can't believe interscope is this f*cked up right now. I apologize to all my fans.," he tweeted July 27th.
"I will work with other artist on there projects but I will not put out another album. They dropped the ball with me one time to many." (50 Cent's Twitter)

He later explained his anger and promised an album would drop in November.

"My album should be out in November," 50 promised in an interview. "It's easy. Everybody, they prioritize my projects. When they don't do things exactly when we had communication about it being done, I get frustrated. Let me be honest with you. They need that record to sell more than I do. Not necessarily that [it's dark over there], it's just the systems itself unless you feel you're going to make a new artist." (Headkrack)

No further album details have been released as of now.
