G-Unit leader 50 Cent has unleashed the artwork to his upcoming long-awaited Five (Murder By Numbers) solo album which surprisingly features a Fif-less cover.
For the first time on his album covers, 50 is not featured in the artwork.
50 Cent took to Twitter today (June 15) to unveil the official artwork for his fifth studio album, “Five (Murder By Numbers).” The artwork comes three days after 50 revealed the album title during an interview with Philly’s Hot 107.9. The cover features a large bold No. 5 knocked out of a deteriorating concrete wall. Through the cracks, one can see a seemingly-abandoned warehouse up in licking red flames. (Billboard)
The rap star finally announced his new LP’s title earlier this month.
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 of record sales holding his 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)
