G-Unit head 50 Cent recently updated fans on the status of a few upcoming solo projects, notably his delayed Street King Immortal, and how much time he has dedicated to molding a conceptual release.
Despite mounted anticipation for Street King Immortal, Fif said his priority is releasing his underground Animal Ambition.
"There's an album I am putting out before Street King Immortal. The title is called Animal Ambition. It's an untamed desire to win. The record is overall about prosperity, ambition, and has an entrepreneurial energy--it's all from a distorted perspective. I just been really excited about the concept, been writing and had a lot of time to create material for the release because it's taken so long." (Complex)
The Unit leader also stressed how much emphasis he put onto his writing.
"So when you listen the record, you'll see it because I told you it, it's about ambition. If I didn't say that, you wouldn't listen to the record and say what's that song called? Cause when Biggie was saying, "Damn, n*ggas wanna stick me for my paper," that's writing prosperity, but the effects of it from others. Jealousy is created from you moving forward. I wrote it from a lot of different angles in order to create an album with all the facets I was comfortable with so it could all have one thing." (Complex)
Barring any unexpected changes, Fif recently said he would unleash his Animal Ambition project this month.
"I'm going to drop it in January, it's a full body of work," Fif revealed. "I wouldn't call it a mixtape because it's a higher grade than the material that I put out on mixtapes. I recorded so many album quality songs that I'm going to put the Animal project out as my viral marketing plan and then it will come out after, Street King Immortal." (Whoolywood Shuffle)
Last month, Curtis Jackson said his delayed solo effort would 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)
