News: 50 Cent Still Clueless Over "Street King Immortal" Release But Makes Big Promise
Friday, Dec 6, 2013 5:10PM
G-Unit head 50 Cent recently discussed what the status of his long-awaited Street King Immortal album is and what fans can expect from him in the coming weeks.
According to Fif, his delayed solo effort will be preceded by a new project.
But what about his long-coming album, "Street King Immortal"? Unfortunately, there is no word on the album release yet, but Jackson said he plans to put out a full body of work in January. While he did not label it as an album, he stated that it was more than a mixtape, and that it includes all original material. As to the sound of the release, he said he was "inspired in a whole other direction." (Huffington Post)
Earlier this year, Fif revealed his disinterest in rushing out the delayed album.
"I don't really need the money off of the record. I want the record to be right. I'm not doing it without a plan; I'm not putting it out like that," 50 told MTV News about his long-awaited fifth studio album. The multiplatinum rap king points to his label Interscope and says he won't make a move until the record company is ready. "It's a lot of staff changes, a lot of different people moving in and moving out, so you got to kind of wait until everything's right; until it's settled in," he reasoned. (MTV)
Fif even came up with a sports analogy to describe his current situation.
50 likens himself to a basketball player with dominant skills but less team support -- someone akin to Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant maybe? "I've been on a team where I take the ball out and throw myself the alley-oop, and I take the ball out and shoot the three-pointer myself, and I take the ball out and I dunk the ball," he said, driving home the analogy.

50 previously spoke to SOHH about his past issues with the label music executive Jimmy Iovine built.
"With Interscope, look, all artists are going to express their frustrations with the system at some point," Fif told SOHH. "I've had all the success in my career with Interscope Records. You know? So when everybody is there and working, that's a powerful system there but a lot of people that are walking around the building now are new faces so I'm reintroducing myself and creating a new focus with the people that are actually there."
