50 Cent: “Album No. 5 is Coming Out With or Without Interscope”

50 Cent is hell-bent on dropping his fifth studio album on July 3rd, whether Interscope backs him up or not.

’Fif made that clear on his Twitter account Wednesday (May 23).

“I’m focused on my music watch how things shift july 3 album #5 is coming out with or with out INTERSCOPE.#SK,” 50 tweeted out to his legions of fans.

Moments later, he clarified that he has no bad blood with Interscope, but he is not going to wait any longer to give fans his next dose of music.

“I have no beef with INTERSCOPE i love making music but I’m tired waiting,” he tweeted. “I’m releasing #5 july3 funny the 4th is independence day :o)

“#5 the album comes out 7.3.12 just in time for the cook outs and partying that go’s on,on the 4th my birthdays is the 6 I’m celebrating,” he added.

Although 50 referred to his album as Album #5 or #5 the album, G-Unit couldn’t confirm the title just yet.

However, the G-Unit general airing out his label isn’t anything new.

“Ok I tried to be cool with my record company,” he wrote in a string of tweets last June. “I went to the meeting [and] talk[ed] to everyone and shit feels like [they're] moving in slow motion. I’m sorry to announce I will not be releasing a new album this year if we don’t get on the same page.”

On Tuesday (May 22), 50 did whet fans’ appetites by releasing his DJ Drama-backed, The Lost Tape, mixtape, a collection that features the likes of Eminem (“Murder One”), 2 Chainz (“Riot” remix) and Snoop Dogg (“Remain Calm”).—Mark Lelinwalla

      How Game sell 99,000 1st week, but struggles & still stuck at 200,000. Damn dude, you’re on this bitch every week about “R.E.D” flopping, or wishing one day it’ll be certified/sold 500,000, well that’s never happening, especially when “R.E.D” is Nowhere on the Billboard 200 chart. & 50 will always sell more than Game. 50 last album had no Chris Brown or no Wayne, & sold 600,000+ U.S Sales, 1mil+ worldwide. Game last album, & next album will/was Loaded w/ Chris Brown & Wayne features, & Struggled to 200,000..worldwide. 50 even sold 2mil w/ Jeremih, Game couldn’t even sell w/ the hottest R&B Singer or hottest rapper in the game.

      • THA TRUTH

    first off…game music is predictable (i.e. name drops, feature heavy, 50/g-unit references, jay-z/nas/dre dickriding etc)…but end of the day the lyrics are good the beat selection isn’t.

    secondly….50 has honestly fell off after the massacare… its wasn’t grodt but it was complete effort. 50 honestly blew up to quick and rejected em and dres guidance and every since his albums or career hasnt been the same. case in point….em blew up off his first lp, but really blew up after the second, but he still kept dre along for the ride although he clearly could drop albums and stand alone. 50 dropped grodt and em and dre were right by him in every interview. but since he felt he didnt need them anymore now look at his career.

    just saying….they both rely on beef to stir hype but we see straight through their marketing plans…..at least i do

    hip hop is dead

  • BLOCK

    HIP HOP ISNT BASED ON SALES ANYMORE….BECUZ RAPPERS ARE BELIEVE IT OR NOT MAKING MORE MONEY OFF MIXTAPES THAN ACTUAL ALBUMS….LOOK AT GUCCI MANE…HE IS WORTH CLOSE TO 12 MILLION OFF TOURING, MIXTAPES, FEATURES, WAKA FLOCKA, DOWNLOADS ETC… AND FYI HE’S ONLY DROPPED 3 OFFICAL ALBUMS…ALL THOSE OTHER ONES ARE UNOFFICIAL ALBUMS PUT OUT BY HIS FORMER LABELS… POINT IS…RECORD SALES DONT MEAN NOTHIN…50 NEEDS TO DROP A GREATEST HITS ALBUM AND FIND ANOTHER RECORD LABEL.
