50 Cent to Release Official New Album Street King Immortal in November, Not Today

Made you look.

For months and months, 50 Cent has been talking up his new album for a July 3rd release day.

Yet, in the wee hours of Tuesday morning (July 3), 50 abandoned those plans, announcing his official album isn’t indeed coming out today after all.

“My official Interscope album is called Street King Immortal due out in nov,” the G-Unit general tweeted out to the masses early on Tuesday morning.

Instead, his planned album, Five (Murder by Numbers), is being served as the “appetizer,” as 50 called it, and is still scheduled to be released today, but for free.

The news isn’t such a surprise, considering that there hasn’t been much promotion and an underwhelming low buzz—other than 50’s tweets—for Five (Murder by Numbers).

Yet, all along, 50 had been promising that his album would drop today—whether Interscope cooperated or not—one day before the July 4th national holiday and three days before his 37th birthday.

In March, ’Fif even declared that the new LP is better than his classic, multi-platinum album, Get Rich or Die Tryin’. In mid-June, while a guest on Philadelphia’s Hot 107.9, the G-Unit general even gave the LP a formal name, Five (Murder by Numbers). ’Fif even went so far as to release the tracklisting for the project late last night (July 2).

Yet, around the same time is when he began backtracking.

“due to negative comments im not releasing music now listen to zero instead of 10 suckers LMAO,” 50 tweeted on Monday night.

He then tweeted:

“im giving you music for FREE EM, DRE, and JIMMY want me to wait and you want to act a fool.”

After declaring that Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo was the newest member of the money team and tweeting a curvaceous eye candy model about her backside, 50 confirmed that his official album wouldn’t be the one he was promising all along for today, but instead in November, under the new title of, Street King Immortal.

50 hasn’t set an exact release date for the new LP, his fifth studio album, just yet. In the meantime, fans can enjoy his new material for free.—Mark Lelinwalla

    All 50 needs is to get with some good producers. Get some of those hard Lex Lugar-type street beats. But truthfully it might be time for Fif to say goodbye to music. If Jay-Z can’t get it poppin without Kanye then there might not be much hope for 50.
