According to early projections, Fif’s long-awaited new LP should sell at least 30,000 copies.

YOUR EARLY READS: RCA Nashville’s Miranda Lambert should easily take the top spot next week. Early, early reads suggest 130-150k. Rhino’s three Led Zeppelin reissues could potentially all wind up in next week’s Top 10; each looks headed to the 25-30k range. Other debuts include 50 Cent (G-Unit/Caroline) at 30-35k and Lucy Hale (DMG Nashville) with 18-22k. (HITS Daily Double)

Earlier this year, the G-Unit general promised to drop another album following this release.

“There’s actually two songs that’ll be out on the 18,” Fif said in an interview. “Kidd Kidd‘s on three of the songs. Three songs on the album. … ‘Irregular Heartbeat,’ that’s with Jadakiss. ‘Chasing Paper’ with Prodigy and Styles. So you’ll get a chance to see them. … After this Animal Ambition, I’m going to put out Street King Immortal.” (This Is 50)

A few months ago, 50 admitted his growing music stash and interest in keeping records refreshing had kept Animal Ambition shelved.

Due to the countless delays of “Animal Ambition,” 50 had to “reapproach the record”: “It’s been so long that I had to rebuild my record. I can’t put out what I made yesterday today.” “This album is prosperity. It’s the positive and negative effects of prosperity. If I’m doing too good, it’s actually not good in front of people.” (Billboard)
