50 Cent details his forthcoming album "Animal Ambition", and responds to Tony Yayo's recent claim that "50 ain't rocking with me and Banks the same."
50 Cent revealed the cover art for his upcoming album Animal Ambition last night, along with a 'release calendar' for when you can expect new music off the project to drop. The first tracks coming up are "Hold On" and "Don't Worry 'Bout It" with Yo Gotti, both due out on March 18th.
In a new interview with Billboard, Fif shares the upside to being independent-- he was able to create the schedule for the release of his project all by himself, he didn't have to cede to the label's schedule.
"It's great. I choose everything: what to release [and] when to release it," 50 said. "The fun part is that there doesn't have to be a schedule. There's no timeline. If I write a record and I want to put it out, I'll put it out."
50 continued to discuss the feel and theme of Animal Ambition, "This album is prosperity," he said. "It's the positive and negative effects of prosperity. If I'm doing too good, it's actually not good in front of people. Prosperity makes them think you're doing better than them, that brings envy and jealousy which then brings negative energy. You will constantly go, 'Wow, I know why you said that right there.' You get an effect of prosperity in each song; even the celebrations, which are inspired by things going on the right way."
Finally, Fif gave his take on scorned G-Unit member Tony Yayo, who recently took to Instagram to declare that "50 ain't rocking with me and Banks the same I layed my life down for the unit but you live and learn."
50 told Billboard, "I had a wonderful journey with the people I grew up with. I think the frustration comes from shock, probably, that it's not everything they wanted it to be. Him of all people… It's not a secret, it's a known fact that he actually came home form jail with a million dollars and a Bentley. Like, ‘What do you want?'"
He continued, "These guys are millionaires. They've made millions of dollars. Why do that then? Whenever there's no one to blame, you know what game you play, [for] a look. I don't know what the goal was."
50 added, "I don't believe in looking back. I can care less about things that's happened in the past. I'm looking forward, at prosperity."
