50 Cent says "Street King Immortal" will not be dropping on November 13th, and hints that Dr. Dre might release "Detox" as an EP instead of a full album.
The man perhaps responsible for revolutionizing how rappers market their albums with pushing mixtapes with production and testing out singles on them first is 50 Cent.Â He released his 5 (Murder By Numbers)Â mixtape this past summer as a prelude to his upcoming fifth studio release, which he now says has been pushed back even further.Â Fif also sheds some light on Dreâs Detox, and talks about collabos on SKI.
One of the kings of marketing in hip hop, the G-Unit General usually has a pattern that he follows where he releases an album, then tours, and afterwards begins production on his next project, but studio issues caused this album to be heavily delayed.Â While the album is not officially pushed back, donât expect to see it on shelves on November 13th.Â
âThe actual album is scheduled to release November 13th, we havenât moved the date yet,â 50 says and elaborates on his usually âcycleâ, âThe actual album, itâs already a year late.Â Itâs usually two years in my cycle...on this actual cycle it was a lot longer cause itâs the final album requirement for Interscope," Fif added in an interview (via XclusivesZone).Â
Sounds like the album could be worth the wait, as Fifty compares it to two of his classics, â I finished it, Iâm comfortable with the actual album.Â I feel itâs arguably as good, if not better, than what I did in the beginning with Get Rich[Or Die Trying] and The Massacre.â
50 even revealed that one of the cuts off Street King Immortal was originally slated to be on a Dr. Dre album, ââMy Lifeâ is a song that was originally recorded for The Detox.â He also doesnât know how motivated his long-time collaborator is, but does know Dr. Dre has been in the studio.Â âI donât know if heâs even excited to do it now...last I was in Los Angeles, he was actually in the studio,â 50 added that it may not be an LP, âIâm not sure if heâs gonna actually release a full CD or the music heâs comfortable with.Â He might do an EP or something like that.
