50 Cent Might Not Release "Black Magic"

50 Cent says he may be going in a different direction with a his new album.

50 Cent may end up shelving what was going to be his upcoming solo album, Black Magic.

The G-Unit general revealed to Rolling Stone Brasil that his writing took things into a different artistic direction.

"I've written the album, Black Magic, but I'm not sure if it'll be my next album," explained Fif. "Since I've made it back to America, after recording in the UK and different territories while I was on the road, I started writing material that don't quite fit that concept, that album. Black Magic had a specific vibe to it, a different style of music and I was playing with different song structures, music from different genres like rock music -- since I got back, I've been writing some things that don't quite fit that because so many producers were accumulating material to send me more ideas so when I got back, I was kinda bombarded with a whole lot of production."

50 likened the change of heart to Eminem's change from Relapse 2 to Recovery. "To give you an example, Eminem's Recovery album. He had Relapse and Relapse 2 and I recorded for him on part two but because I was on tour with him during Recovery, we didn't get a chance to work together on that album but he re-wrote the album."

    50 is still a good artist, the problem is that people don't want to listen to music that has substance anymore. 50 was on the verge on bring back that shit we loved but the south took over and dumbed rap down....BTW I'm from the south NC in this bitch! There's still spitters down south and up north but that ain't what the 106 and Park kids want to hear. There's no TV show that shows real hiphop anymore

  • Mines

    Please go away 50. Please - 9 shots and all of them missed - what a d*mn shame!

  • Nico 3

    "We didn't get a chance to work together" means Eminem no longer wants to work with you. Releasing Black Magic couldn't hurt or help him. Honestly, the only thing left is to land a guest spot on Detox.

    50 cent has gone soft,he use to be the hottest madafucker in a hip hop industry.i wont buy his pathetic music

  • c//gaddic

    Hate or love it This industry is a business And the goal of every business is to make a profit Rappers need to sell records in order to not be dropped or disregarded by the record execs in this case the "Jimmy Iovines" Yes we underground heads know very well sales don't mean shit when it comes to high quality rap music 50 is right to hype up his record sales He might not be a that good of a rapper in the underground's opinion But he's a rich fuck that gets treated like nobility by his label That's what is important TO HIM 2bad we real hiphop fans know better AZ said it best "Ima be here in 2030 where will you be?"

  • dcollin4444

    Well, I wasn't going to pick up Black Magic, so I wonder what 50 is going to name his next album that I won't get? Actually, who cares... Why is 50 Cent even in headlines? Is dude relevant in hip hop anymore anyway? Didn't think so. NEXT!

  • lankaistai

    50 cent must shelve that 'black magic' album, i still think BISD was a good album

  • RocJay

    THE MATERIAL THAT I'VE WRITTEN LAYELY DON'T FIT THE ORIGINAL CONTENT, FOR EXAMPLE LETS TAKE EMINEMS ALUBUM FOR EXAMPLE BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL THIS NIGGA IS NOT A RAPPER ANYMORE TO ALL YOU NON BELIEVERS GOOD LUCK I agree. He saw a "switcheroo" work for Em and that's the same thing he is trying to pull here. He should have been smart enough not to mention Em, that way, we won't know he was just being a copycat. And for the poster that said 50 does not care about sales, boy put that crack pipe down and go read up more on your favorite rapper. He cares about sales because he wants to be on top and now that he is not on top, he hates on any one kicking his behind. And while I am sure he is still getting that cash, its not like it used to be. The only money I see coming in now is touring money. We know there is no record sales and I don't know who is buying G Unit clothing at this point. I may be wrong, but I think the line was retired even. No one stays on top forever and 50 needs to realize that. Having dropped one of the best rap albums ever, it would be a shame for him to drop an entire album of "Candy Shop" type songs because he thinks that's gonna sell. His last album only went gold if that and that's only after he bought some albums himself. Here is a good reason why he should not drop Black Magic. He's gonna come out, do 300,000, making it two in a row. When that happens, what kind of deal does he think he's gonna get since this is the last album on his contract? There are dumb record company execs out there, but 50 is proving he is on the decline and no one's gonna give him the type of money he's gonna be asking for.

    • N.Dastardly

      Couldn't of said this any better. But I gotta add the reason I feel he didn't go thru with this shit is because who.. I mean WHO in the fuck is about to purchase a 50 Cent Eurodance album?? If you check back in a post DX put up before, he was all about Europes club scene and the music and how it was something "fresh and new" to him. Note "to him," lol cuz he's the only one thinkin it was new. I feel he sees what Will.I.Am. Akon, shit even what Flo-Rida is doin with the collabs of the house DJs is something he could do. And he probably could, but not a whole damn album. And to go out like that with this being the last record he put out with Interscope?? Yea he sat down and thought about that. Didnt have shit to do with him goin from one part of the globe to the other and having THAT conflict with his writing. The Em example he put out was clever... To a dumbass. 50 all you gotta do is fall back on attacking everybody. It was coo' at first but shits played out. That album Black Magic if he woulda released it woulda proved the act of desperation. Wheres The Doc when ya need him?

    • Dramacydal

      So sad seen you nigs commenting on while hes thinking of taking it to the next level, Hes moving on from the gangsta library!!! Keep commenting and he will be sittting there laughing the pHcuk out lawl, I use to hate once upon but now am starting respect him. Theres a whole new world out there thats coming.

  • Megan fox lover

    The real reason 50 scrapped 'Black Magic' is coz he heard 'Recovery', 'Thank Me Later' n 'Distant Relatives' and he literally SHIT his pants!!!! Unless he comes up with some samba/jazz/rock/hip hop experimental album that will blow niggaz minds. . . . . Oh, wait. Its 50 were talking about here. . . . Atleast he still getting that $$$ from video games, book n g-unit clothing

  • Monroe

    50 mURKSSS TRACKS.

  • rapskilz

    JA-RULE 1. Came out all Ganster 2. Went pop with all the singing and features 3. Battled with 50 and took a huge hit 4. Made movies that went straight to DVD 5. Career dies 50 CENT 1. Came out all Ganster 2. Went pop with all the singing and features 3. Battled with Ross and took a huge hit 4. Made movies that went straight to DVD If we follow a pattern we know where 50 is at right?

  • asaad

    banks the only one now holdin it down now! HFM2 on the way boyyy check out "light up" by banks its lyrical murder!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • sheshouldveabordedyyou

    50 need to just put out some new material,and shut the fuck up really.50 get money regardless so it probably dont matter to him,but put some shit out so you can stay more relevant in the game.despite what people say this nigga was on top and came up but it seems like he rather run his mouth then come with some hot shit.50 is top ten dead or alive in standards of what he did in the rap game no doubt but make it a continuing legacy of hits and classic material rather than sitin around talkin about diddy or some media attention bullshit its weak shit.right now he not really getin attention from the rap game like before but alot of artist declined in record sells and put out great even classic material so theres no excuse.50 dont need to make no industry artist filled album to sell a record they just need to get back on that g unit shit.

  • maaaaan

    reason there aint no new "get rich or die tryin" is cuz 50 intelligent enough to kno that nobody makes real money rappin bout how hard they are how they gona kill a nigga this that and the 3rd ... save dat for the underground cuz thats where they stayin ... u gotta go where the moneys at...dumb niggas wont understand

  • jogrind

    50 said "Grandmama I'm not a snitch but they left a card on how to reach them, so I'm going to tell you and you tell the fed's." That's an old bitchass move right there. For real!!

  • jogrind

    @ Marco Debart..........Fool you like 50 cent so what in the hell do you know about real Hip-Hop! That shoot Em up shit is getting old. He also snitched on "Kenneth "Supreme" Mcgriff!!! That's when I had to put the shit down. Yall dickriders and white boys didn't understand because he was Eminem's boy, but it wasn't anything against Eminem but you can't be a "Federal Informant" and tell us that Ja-Rule ain't real or Ross was a C.O. for two years. Ross didn't snitch on any C.O.'s that I know of. RUNNING AROUND HERE TALKING ABOUT HE BEAT MURDER INC. "The fool called the Police"!! I could have done that shit.

    • tebone34

      Assad you are stupid, why do u think 50 got shot? he dry snitched in the song Ghetoo Quran which started the whole beef with Ja and Murder Inc. Ever heard of Kenneth Supreme Mgcriff, Do your homework son. http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/0906051murder1.html http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/0426043murder1.html

    • asaad

      50 is in the 1% bracket of real niggas to ever spit it! he aint ever snitch u idiot if he snitched.. who did he snitch on?? preme aint say he snitch..u just a fool that dont no shit... even bang em smurf (50s worse enemy) say 50 aint ever snitch n these 2 dudes wanna kill eachother so pretty sure he aint snitch! 50 sucks now i agree but he was the biggest ever to come out n bang a classic out with GRODT n massacre was hot too LLOYD BANKS HOLDIN IT DOWN NOW CHECK HIS NEW TRACK "LIGHT UP" lyrical murder!!! HFM2 september boyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

  • hennesy47

    all i gotta say is that 50 aint as hot as he used to be in music with his album get rich or die tryin'. dont get me wrong he still has some good songs but rite now he is in like the middle phase, is like people dont talk as much about him as they used to when he first came out, every artist goes through this, eminem did but he still tries to keep up, but hey, its eminem, hes the best rapper ever. if 50 wants to cause an impact then hes gonna have to come out with something good and some hardcore material cus people now a days be listening to some gay shit that is not even hip hop no more, these new rappers are killin hip hop for the bad. we need to show them the real hip hop. he also needs to reach the younger audience but still with hardcore music but at the same time drive them away from that gay shit like souljah boy and all them fake rappers like new kids etc.... Before i self destruct had some good songs but he never promoted them he only promoted the ones that sucked, so he didnt get much attention out of it. were just gonna have to wait and see. 50 dont let me down again.

  • jogrind

  • Rachael5922

    at least you are smart enough to know that if you make a album full of negative energy, you know what comes knockin on your door (of life) either way what you make is going to reflect the times we live in. And right now, with the Lunar and Solar eclipse we live in high energy times. Ride the right wave.

    • I'm ready to kill for my fav rappers(lames)

    who cares ross ended what was left of 50 he was on the down fall any way then ross just finished it after deeper than rap outshined his album and that teflon don is fire to that boy hungery

    • Fresh00

      Dude Rick Ross is honestly horrible. I don't even know what the fuck he's rapping about. With that said, 50 Cent also sucks dick. So basically fuck them both, they are garbage rappers.

    • YouKnowIMright

      Lol, na thats not accurate. You need to check your facts son. Top 10 R&B ringtones? what? LMAO. Goes to show its not rap fans buying that frauds album. Hey i just don't support fake artists.

    • ...

      how did 50 kill ross when ross's sales for his last album are pretty consistent with his first two albums and he's still pullin' down top 10 r&b singles? sounds like you need to get off of 50's jock, son

    • YouKnowIMright

      C Red, get those dicks out of your ears. It was 50 that destroyed Rick Ross's career. Officer Ross is a pathological liar. That fat moron thinks the more he opens his mouth and tells everyone he killed 50, the more it might happen. Nope, sorry officer ross this aint fairy tale land. Real Hip hop heads know who won. and thats my nig 50.

  • cold 187

    This nigga wont last and been gone for a minute now...he aint KRS

    • YouKnowIMright

      Aint no one trying to be KRS. Get the fuck outta here. 50's one of the realist niggas in the game right now. One of the only stars thats out doing exactly what he wants and not playing with the industry bull shit.

  • anom

    50 aint releasing it cuz he know it aint gonna sell, just like his last album

    • Fresh00

      You talk like you're getting some sort of sense of accomplishment depending on how many cd's these fucking rappers sell. Why in the world do you care so much? Is there something I'm missing here? Did you invest in some stock that I'm unaware of?

    • YouKnowIMright

      Na, hes just coming up with a better plan to take you dumb fucks by surprise. Knowing 50, he'll do something smart and move units. Just wait. And if you look at actual free illegal downloads of his last album, yeah about 5 million people got it for free not counting sales. 50 cents music is STILL crack to you fiends. It's just that you crack heads are either too broke, or too lazy to get your asses to the stores to actually PAY for it. Same thing with higher selling artists like Eminem. While Eminem broke Sales records as usual, I can guarantee a few million people downloaded Recovery for free during the first week. I bet not very many people will buy OR bootleg ross's album. He just doesn't have it like that

  • Ceazar

    Pls listen Gucci Mane-Hold that thought

  • Bill87

    They say I walk around like I got an S on my chest. I miss the old 50.

    • Bill87

      Ive never been a G unit fan by the way. I thought Young Buck was decent and The Game can be as good as he wants to be after listening to The Documentry. Other than that, I can't stand Yayo, never been a lloyd banks fan and never liked the Gunit albums.... Slaughterhouse > Gunit

    • franco

      Nothing wrong with missing somebody either way, but G-Unit fans always saying some suspect sounding shit like that. It's very weird. "50 hard as fuck, he hurting me"

    • Bill87

      @fukkkk fiddy Its so funny because its only gay if you make it gay. I obviously don't miss him, I've never met the man in my life! But any 50 fan or old 50 fan will tell you they want another Get Rich Or die Trying. End of story.
