50 Cent Promises New Single This Week

50 Cent revealed via Twitter today (Apr. 18) that he’d be dropping the first single off of his fifth solo LP, Black Magic sometime this week. According to Fif, the track is “nothing but heat.”

Not only will Fif’s fans have something to look forward to this week, but also they can anticipate a little something different from the multi-platinum MC. As previously reported, by XXLMag.com, the G-Unit General has surprisingly collaborated worked with French House DJ David Guetta on the album, as well as usual suspects Eminem, Lil’ Kim, Busta Rhymes and Akon according to MTV News.

The Queens mogul has already been putting in a lot of work over the last four months, dropping over a dozen freestyles since January.

Black Magic is reportedly scheduled for release this summer. —Natalie Adeeyo

    FIRST WEEK SALES PROJECTIONS: 101,000!

    Yep, I said it!

    50 was a beast when he was hungry. But living in the lap of luxury has tainted that sell-or-die mentality. 50′s waaay too corporate now.

    Also, the game has shifted. I personally don’t subscribe to the “Gangsta Rap” genre. Hip-hop is Hip-Hop. But the clientele’s tastes have switched. Artistic cats are able to move with it. 50′s never been a “true” artist. And he will suffer heavily at the U.S. cash registers for his sudden “Artistic” approach. This album will go “Double Aluminum” according to 50′s previous efforts.

    the game needs some macho shit in it…all the snging going on i feel like we are at a R&B concert!…50 you the man!

  • T DOG

    I can’t wait. the 14 songs he dropped in the last couple of months were hot.

  • Leifman

    I have to agree with the first comment.

    Fifty will not sell anymore but a couple hundred tho.
    But in these days, that’s not all bad.
    Kid cudi is a big superstar, he hasn’t even gone gold on any of his records (correct me if im wrong).

    But I dont care, hiphop aint sales.
    And hiphop barely is alive.

    So its gonna be real nice to hear what fifty has to offer, like T DOG said the songs he dropped the last couple of months is hot.

    It’s real hiphop, it’s what this game is missing.

    I mean, the guy talking the most gangsta shit, is rick ross, and he is a fucking fraud!

    50 is back, and hopefully he can give us some hot shit :)

      You’re wrong, Kid Cudi’s first album went Gold. And there is no way any new 50 Cent album will go gold. He is as irrelevant in hip-hop as ever.

  • Rap Fan

    Yeah, can’t wait for some new raw 50 stuff. I love the stuff that I’ve been listening to recently, but I need some hard hitting raw stuff now, and 50 should be the perfect man for the job. That ‘Dial 911′ freestyle was sick.

    Another artist doing well these days is Chamillionaire. He just dropped “Major Pain 1.5,” and you can download it for free on his website. It’s pretty awesome too.

    I would say first week he sells at least 200,000. He still can move units. hardly anyone can sell records like they used to. it’s not just 50. the only people who still do are wayne, em, and jay. 50 forgot how to make solid albums. i like his last couple but you have to make a cd full of good songs that go together. after his second, i start forgetting the names of the cd’s because they weren’t very solid at all.

    however that being said, i am still excited to hear what 50 will put out. and i am sure it will get to a million eventually.

  • yaboy4rmdasouth

    50 is on his shit again. I jus hope he hits em hard with this album for those haters out there talking crazy. can’t wait to hear that first single.

    i still think he can grab over 500,000 his first week if his album is solid and has heavy hits.

  • Paballo

    50 is stil hot,bt i thnk he lost a lil bit touch.cuz his nwadays songs aint as hot as b4.bt i stil love his music

  • Cali-bred

    Your either with 50 or completely against him theres no in between, ive been a 50 fan since 02′ and yes the rap game has changed ALOT, but a true artist doesn’t need to adapt to any current trends, the truth is this guy hasnt changed up- you phony ass fans have. this new album is gnna be nothing but that fire were use to

    I won’t count 50 out just yet. Chris Brown’s Fame just went gold in three weeks. Considering the bad press and album sales in general now, many would consider that an achievement.

    The problem is 50 needs to stop burning bridges every time a successful artist gets a buzz. Both Kanye and Chris was thought to have had their careers over and many people including oher artists were giving up on them. But they kept releasing good music and kept their association with other popular artists. 50 was laughing at Kanye after the VMA incident but he didn’t attempt to release any music to give him a stance to even criticize Kanye. And that’s the problem. 50 spends more time talking about artists instead of releasing anything people would be interested in.

    These days you can’t beef with anyone because thet just alienates you from sharing the fans of other artists. 50 beefing with Wayne, Kanye, Jay, Drake, Ross and TI made him lose any possibility of sharing some of their fans. As well as collaborations with them. There was a time were Em would’ve made a first single featuring artists like Rihianna, Kanye, Lady Gaga, and the like. But that would piss off possible consumers and would leave him with hip-hop purists and dudes that know about “Infinite” and how much would Em sell with that. Nobody’s a fan of one artist.

    The rap game has changed but it hasn’t hurt “Gangsta” dudes like Ross and Gucci nor helped non threatening artists like Wale, Asher Roth, or the like. 50 needs to make hit music and not gangsta or electri/house music. Ross makes good music with no where near as many resources as 50.

    i feel what cali-bred is saying. G-unit

    50 probably will probably do poor numbers but has nothing to do with his quality of music! have a look at kanye west new album solid work of music very intelligently produced great singles. and has barely gotten over the 1 million mark since its release?

    people just getting lazy with i-tunes now available and download. no one walks into a store and sees a highly anticipated album! we all waiting for the promotion or to read a blog or a review on it! and we will judge it before listening to it!

    Also a few people who bought 50′s first two albums, especially women for the two singles candy shop and 21 questions. but would they have honestly listened to the rest of the album with interest. now that you can buy singles off i-tunes it kills the idea of buying the complete package. The music industry is dying especially hip hop. so its not 50′s lack of talent that is promoting poor album sales. Its the labels lack of promotion, music industry sales, and our extrememely lazy effort to support artists (We just download the shit) 50 has offered great music consistantly but because he is so popular we just download him for free! i mean he has 4 million twitter followers he should atleast sell 2 million you lazy fuc*s stop tweeeting and buy his music!

    would be interesting if he did what angels and airwaves just did put his new album up for free download and see how many units he moved and the people buying the album could choose wether or not to pay for the music!
