50 Cent Reveals Album Release Date

Earlier this morning (March 20), 50 Cent took to Twitter to announce the release date for his forthcoming fifth studio album. Formerly titled Black Magic—that title has since been scrapped— the album, according to Fif, will be dropping on July 2nd.

“My album is coming out July 2. I got some heat, trust me. I’m ready,” he tweeted.

That first week of July will be an interesting one for the G-Unit general as he will also be celebrating his birthday.

“My birthday’s July 6, so, that’s a cool date for ME. It’s gonna be July 2 album, July 4 Independence Day, then July 6 my birthday.”

The announcement comes after previous nixed release dates for the upcoming album and boiling frustration from ‘Fif against his Interscope label. Just two months ago, after a premature leak of the untitled-fifth studio album’s lead single, “Girls Go Wild,” 50 took to Twitter to vent his disappointment in the label, tweeting, “I have lost all the faith in the team I’m on [and] I have nothing left to say. I will not be promoting my music. I’m going to deliver this album then I have a film I wrote to focus on. I’m not upset, I’m just convinced this is not how I want to be remembered.”

Stay tuned to as more information on 50 Cent’s forthcoming album becomes available.—Ralph Bristout
