50 Cent Announces Album Release Date

50 Cent finally eyes the summer for release of his oft-delayed fifth solo album.

50 Cent has announced the release date for his untitled fifth solo album.

Breaking the news on Twitter, Fif revealed that the oft-delayed LP is scheduled to drop on July 2nd. "My album is coming out july 2. I got some heat trust me I'm ready," he wrote. "My birthdays july 6 so that's a cool date for ME. Its gonna be july2 album, july4 independence day, then july6 my birthday."

The G-Unit general has been down this road before. He originally revealed that he had begun work on the album, formerly titled Black Magic, in March 2010. He then nixed the project and hit the studio to record the LP once more. He then said that the album would be released in November 2011, followed by December 2011, but the album failed to materialize.

My album is coming out july 2. I got some heat trust me I'm ready

      300 Bars and that's it. Every other mixtape he made with G-Unot just had it because 50 had white fans. So people thought it was cool to say G-Unot.

  • UltimateMegadon

    Fans need to stop being A%R's and support the artist they like yall niggas aint getting paid to predict artist sales so sit your ass down...

  • Drake

    Like Wayne said in his post, we gon keep the shine off 50, if he get a small buzz we gon try to keep the attention off him, maybe have nicki do a video shaking her ass. Then I will finally come out and release a rap song that yall aint heard from in 2 years so i'm sure you all will eat it up. yeah we save the good shlt for times like this. cuz if 50 get back in the spotlight we might not be around.........

  • Lil Wayne

    I have the perfect counter to keep his shine down, first Nicki will release a track prob. feat. me or drake or Ross. Then few weeks from there Drake will release a track off his album. Then finally I will release a new song from I'm not a human being 2. so yea I'm going to make sure I keep the tention off 50, if he get's hot like he once was I don't think I can battle him..........

    A million copies, or one copy sold. Doesn't matter. Everybody should give it a listen, and if they like it, cop it. 50 of all people should realize that record sales, especially in a recession, don't really add up when comparing to the quality of the music. I loved Yelawolf's Radioactive. That album entered the Billboard chart at #27...come on...TWENTY SEVEN. Some people thought it wasn't that great, but TWENTY SEVEN is really low for that caliber of music. But who cares? If it's good, go out and buy it! 50's best material is put out for free on the internet anyway (i.e. War Angel, Big 10). I just hope for his case that it's quality material. Too much soft, punk R&B shit out nowadays.

  • Little X

    How much do you think this will sell first week? His last one sold just over 100,000...I'm guessing the new one will sell somewhere between 50,000 and 70,000. lol

      dude sold 160k first week even though the entire album was leaked a month ago.

      Lol @ you anonymous. What they say at halftime doesn't determine the result of the game. Poor analogy. 50 to 70 thousand times $10=half a million dollars plus some. That flop you all call BISD made the label 5 million plus some. 50's "washed up money">>>>>your life hating in a website's comment section When is the last time you generated a half a million dollars in a week little x and anonymous for you to laugh at someone who's actually doing it?

    Fifty is dope. All that tabloid bullshit aside, he's one of the last MCs out of NY still making good rap music. Curtis and Before I Self Destruct were weak, but everything he's put out in the last year and half has been fire. 50 is a MC from the golden age, don't get it twisted.

    it is well discussed and agreed upon that lil wayne and rappers alike have contributed to the decline of hip hop thus its current state/status. lil wayne has plenty of fans and thats fine but they are fans of a softer style of hip hop and most of us want that hard stuff brought back.. 50 cent is the man to do it.. lets gooo...

    this is going to be the hottest album out in the last 2 years. 50 cent is going to make people remember what true hip hop sounds like. 50 cents big 10 mixtape was the hottest mixtape of the year and no one and i mean no one has been able to produce a mixtape that can compare. no more bubble gum hip hop and lil wayne garbage.

  • Arjun

    I frankly think that his performance here in Austin's South by Southwest festival inspired him to put out new material in stores and finally drop a full new studio album! He realized that his relevancy his almost gone if not completely already judging from the fans that were not completely receptive to his show in Austin...the fact is not that what he performed was not hot music (or classic) but that only about half of the audience actually recalled all the songs that he performed (most people that attend concerts tend to be non-heavily devoted rap fans who only remember the chart-topping hits)...leaving him probably yearning to put out new music for the current time frame and the young generation who remembers 50 Cent as more than just a couple of years ago's hotness...

      50 can shit on austin, he has millions of fans

    • chris

      50 has the best performance and reaction from the fans out of any other artist at SXSW. Now with that said the crowd at SXSW was horrible. Most artist have said the crowd was dull and disrespectful. The crowd had people having side conversations during live sets and it just wasnt a crowd favorable to hip hops biggest stars. So with those circumstances 50 cent still managed to rock the crowd and hes as relevant as ever. G-UNIT. lets stick to facts people.

    • thought dog

      Thats how most rap shows are in America. There was an article with Phonte or somebody else talking about how hype the people in Europe/Asia get compared to American audiences. Americans mostly stand around and try to look cool while audiences in other parts of the world dance and get wild at the shows.

    • Koollie

      That doesnt make any sense, Your head is full of shit if you really thought that. 50 has said few months ago that his album was mostly done and would drop in 2012. You think that that festival changed something? And he went back to the studio to make the album? By the way, Those were just some lame ass audience, boring teenagers...I have watched different performances also by the YMCMB peeple. Same boring lame audience who just stood there like they shitted in their pants and couldnt move. At least 50's performance is the most watched and talked about...now think again.

  • 50 Cent

    yo wassup it's the kid 5-0. yo this going to be a hot album i know i said this last time but it is. i'm tryn to change what's being played on the radio(pop-fruitart rap music) so when I come out with some real rap hit em up shoot em up shlt dont get scared...besides yall would be all over me if em/dre got on a track with me. ol bandwagon nggas




    I hope 50 comes on some good shit this time. He hasn't had a BIG record in a minute. He needs some energetic street shit like B.M.F. to capture everyone's attention.
