50 Cent describes the sound and theme of "Animal Ambition," revealing that "Street King Immortal" will follow it.
At the time of the announcement, Fif didn't say much on the project, only that it would be more than your average mixtape. He's reiterated this sentiment in a recent interview, while also providing some more insight into the album. It remains to be seen whether he'll be giving this away for free or whether it will be paid, however, he does say he's dropping it in January and that Street King Immortal will follow.
"I'm going to drop it in January, it's a full body of work," 50 Cent said. "I wouldn't call it a mixtape because it's a higher grade than the material that I put out on mixtapes. I recorded so many album quality songs that I'm going to put theÂ AnimalÂ project out as my viral marketing plan and then it will come out after,Â Street King Immortal."
He went on to detail his marketing idea, as well as the whole concept of Animal Ambition.
As he explained, "I want to putÂ Animal AmbitionÂ out in the first quarter. And then itâll lead up toÂ Street King Immortal. So itâll be twelve weeks. Thatâs why Iâm working so hard, when I leave here I go straight back to record again."
"WithÂ Animal Ambition, the project is about prosperity," Fif added, referring to the sound and theme. "I got an interesting way of writing it, âcause I wrote it from a distorted vision or viewpoint. When Biggie was doing âDamn, niggas wanna stick me for my paper, damn,â thatâs about when you get something, the effects of others responding to you doing better.Â The jealousies connected to it, thereâs so many different ways to write it, that the album has those facets to it. The overall theme is ambition and prosperity."
