50 Cent is no stranger to recording solo albums. However, this time, the Queens rapper is trying something new.

“I made collaborations [but] this time, I actually just wanted to create things and see if anything came out that I felt like other artists should get on,” explained 50 in an interview with maximotv.com (watch below). “My previous albums, I went in the studio with them — this time I’m making music and then trying to find ways to put them on the records. It’s more me even when it’s a collaboration. It’s them fitting into what I felt was right now as opposed to us making a total compromise.”

In the interview, 50 also discussed his upcoming film, Things Fall Apart.

The album, which is a follow-up to 2009’s Before I Self Destruct, would be 50’s fifth solo release, and would fulfill his obligation to Shady/Aftermath.
