G-Unit leader 50 Cent continues to tease fans eagerly awaiting a follow-up to 2009’s Before I Self Destruct by calling the upcoming LP a revamped version of his debut.
Although he has not yet offered a release date, 50 hinted at plans to drop the project this year.
“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)
50 recently revealed his interest in snagging G.O.O.D. Music’s Kanye West to assist with the LP.
“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)
After promising to release the album’s first single last month, 50 later had a change of heart.
“I tweeted something about the actual single,” 50 explained in an interview. “While I’m out here, I gotta meeting and I gotta sit with Jimmy [Iovine], I gotta sit with the guys that push the button. I’ve done it by myself on my other albums because I’ve got my own radio staff, and I work the record, then get it to 500 hundred spins and then let them kick in. But I think it’s better if I go with the entire building and have everybody on deck so they understand my plans for this project.” (MTV)
In 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 fifth studio album including Lil’ Kim, Akon, Swizz Beatz, Busta Rhymes, and Lloyd Banks. (Rap-Up)
