G-Unit leader 50 Cent has finally announced the title of his long-awaited Before I Self Destruct follow-up, revealing his fifth solo album is called Five (Murder by Numbers).
After months of speculation, Fif broke the news in a recent Philadelphia radio interview.
During an interview with Hot 107.9 Philly (via HHNM), the G-Unit general revealed that the title of his LP will be Five (Murder by Numbers). “@50cent has a new album dropping July 3rd called Five (Murder by Numbers). Make sure you go and get that,” tweeted the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania radio station. (HHDX)
Last month, 50 Cent said his new LP would drop this summer, with or without support from Interscope Records.
“There’s a lot more business involved [in putting out an album] than the general public is aware of. And that part causes the actual delay with [Interscope]. I’m releasing my album July 3rd, whether is has commercial promotions or not,” 50 said in an interview. “My birthday is July 6 and I planned for it. And I’m doing everything that I planned to do regardless if its huge airplay or not. I could care less, I’m putting the record out.” (All Hip Hop)
He also killed the notion that album sales have held the LP back.
“I don’t need a record to sell. How much money you think I’ma make off record sales? You think I’ma sell 13 million records?,” Fif added. “It’s starting to feel like that corner that I left. I ain’t going to keep sitting on the records. Even if everything ain’t in order, album five will be out July 3rd and they can wait another two years for me to give them another one.” (All Hip Hop)
In March, the rap star announced his studio album’s release date.
“My album is coming out july 2. I got some heat trust me I’m ready,” Fif tweeted March 20th.
“My birthdays july 6 so that’s a cool date for ME. Its gonna be july2 album, july4 independence day, then july6 my birthday.” (50 Cent’s Twitter)
