G-Unit’s 50 Cent may have had his Street King Immortal‘s release date recently pushed back, but that has not stopped the New York rap star from putting out new heat like his “Financial Freedom” music video.
On the new record, Fif shows listeners and viewers alike his grittier side away from the million dollar deals and celebrity romances.
50 Cent makes his return to the game today with a dope new video for his latest track “Financial Freedom”. The track has a nice throwback appeal that sounds as if it was recorded in 50’s hay day, when he first came in the game. The video for “Financial Freedom” finds 50 in gritty warehouse of sorts. As he spits his bars he gets some black and white effects that add a grainy feel to the clip. This sh*t is tough, I’m happy to see 50 getting back to his old ways, dropping flames and hot tracks. (Stupid Dope)
The G-Unit general also hopped onto Twitter and credited his Get Rich Or Die Tryin’ for inspiring the new tune.
“about to drop this new sh*t FINANCIAL FREEDOM this was inspired by 10yrs of GET RICH,” Fif tweeted February 8th.

Around mid-January, 50 cited changes at Interscope Records for delaying his upcoming solo album.
On Wednesday, the “I Get Money” MC revealed to MTV News that Street King won’t be out on February 26 and is now slated for a spring release, citing internal changes at Interscope Records as the reason. “Actually it’s the system,” he said. “It’s a lot of adjustments being made there, obviously Christmas I think 35 people got let go.” In the past, Fif has really taken Interscope to task when it came to delays and leakage of his music. This time, however, he seems to be understanding of the situation and exercising a great deal of patience. “It’s a shift in who’s responsibilities are what, so as fast as they get it together,” he said. “I’m confident they’ll put it together though, so it’ll be out.” (MTV)
Recently, 50 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.” (SOHH)
