50 Cent Confirms That His Album Will Be Out In July, Compares Floyd Mayweather To Muhammad Ali

50 Cent sticking with a July release date for his new album, says Mayweather is "the Ali of our generation."

For quite some time the fate of 50 Cent’s fifth studio album seemed a bit unclear due to his issues with his label, Interscope Records. But while being interviewed by various reporters at the Floyd Mayweather Boxing Club in Las Vegas, he revealed that his fifth studio album will in fact be released July of this year. 
“Of course man,” said 50 Cent when asked if he’s working on any new music. “I’m actually working on the music. New album will be out July.”
While 50 Cent did reveal the July 2 release date for his album via Twitter, this is the first time he’s spoken publicly on the album’s release date. 
Since he was in fact being interviewed at Mayweather’s Boxing Club, 50 Cent was asked several questions about boxing and even spoke on taking part in the sport as a youth. He also referred to Mayweather as being “the Ali of our time” when asked if the boxer is greater than boxing legend Muhammad Ali. 
“I’ve been watching boxing for a long time. I’ve been a huge fan of it,” 50 Cent explained in a video posted on HipHop-n-More.com. “I started boxing when I was 12-years-old. I didn’t get a chance to go as far as my friend [Floyd Mayweather] did. I get a chance to live vicariously through him …I think he is equivalent to Ali. He’s the Ali of our time, our generation.”
No other details on 50 Cent’s fifth studio album have been revealed.

    Floyd is the greatest marathon runner of our generation, nigga can beat Lance Armstrong....on foot.Mayweather is the epitome of a butthurt individual who time after time finds himself making excuses for what in fact is his cowardice.plus the person who book shis fights is a genius,what the eff was a Victor Ortiz?

  • They Ain't Ready

    50 Cent is the richest and most beautiful nigga I ever saw in my whole fucking life. I would shoot my damn self to be like him

  • Mic

    Floyd Mayweather ain't no Ali. I can't wait to see dat nigga get knocked when he schedule tha wrong fight

  • Anonymous

    This nigga was recording Ciara's phone calls and playing them for other women!!! Every sense Chelsea Handler told that we haven't even seen Ciara checking for this nigga!!! That woman put his 8th grades bullshit on front street. This nigga aint like no street nigga that I've ever met.

  • BlazeDatIshUp

    Hopefully the album is as good as or better than his mixtape, but comparing him to Ali??...He must be high as fuck, cuz Mayweather is nowhere near Ali's level. Ali took on anyone, anywhere... Ali fought Foreman when everyone thought he was crazy for doing it, cuz of Foreman's size and power, while Mayweather ducks a lot of folks. Ali truely enjoyed boxing and got paid for it, and Myaweather looks as though he just does it for the big pay day. I hope he loses this current fight and then Pacman spanks him and shuts his big mouth up, although it won't shut him up, and he'll likely make excuses as to why he lost or some shit. Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson are my top 2 boxers period, and of course Joe Louis, Sugar Ray Robinson, Lennox Lewis and Evander Holyfield round out my top 6, although not necessarily in that order, except for Ali and Tyson being the top 2.

    50 and Nas in the same month? This is bananas it's Queens Month. First 50 then Escobar Season after. Y'all gotta admit. It is pretty exciting. I wanna know who else got a July date. Hope it's somebody dope

  • Rodrick

    I've been in debt before, the people I owed money allowed to me to make money in order to pay them off. 50 dont care about that 200 grand or whatever Buck owes him, he would've let him release product by now to attempt to pay it off if the money were what mattered, he's doing this for personal reasons and nothing more. He's probably having a hard time coming to terms with the fact that he's a has been now, and since he's powerless to hurt anybody else's career with his mediocre diss records & internet videos that the rest of his enemies laugh at, he's taking it out on the one man he still has some power over - Young Buck

    • H4ZE

      yall are fuckin stupid. there are other ways to make money then music. if buck was a true hustler he'd find a way, matter a fact if he was true he wouldnt have been dumb enough to get himself in this position in the first place!

    • Pop

      You summed that up perfectly. He has no control over his own life, so he tries to control others...Make them suffer the way he's suffering...It sounds childish, but that's 50...I almost feel more sorry for him then I do Buck. He's got a sad life ahead of him...He will be lonely and broke in just a couple of years...

  • Anonymous

    The Devil takes many sizes and shapes like they say, anybody who ever does buisness with 50 again after watching what he's done to bucks career (and in effect his life) deserves whatever fuckery he puts them through.

      the devil comes in what? so fif is the devil...then I guess the dude that's running syria is a saint and that dude who took over N.Korea is someone you worship and praise...and King charles is not the anti christ....GTFOH!!...rap fans take things so serious...gheez

  • Adrian8604

    Ali?Please.Ali took fights and fought fighters.Mayweather dances with a bunch of turkeys of fighters past there prime.

  • Anonymous

    50 needs to take back that lame statement. It wasn't about the obession with wins for Muhammad Ali. He went for the best fighters in his generation. I refuse to pay for pay per view because they are all scheming bastards! Give me my motherfuckin money's worth and have Pacquiao and Mayweather go! He will never go down as a legend because it's about quality. Pacquiao will go down more of a legend then him! It's about the people you fight. If you notice Mayweather picks people he knows he could beat and it seems he has more of a say of who he can fight like it's just a big money flashing charade. That's not boxing! That's not heart! Fuck outta here!

    yeah his the ali of our generation, which is a bitch generation thats more interested in the business of boxing rather than boxing as a sport because of that boxing is dead. after may whether and manny retire is basically over.

  • 50 IS DUMB

    Listen to this dude speak. smh I know he thinks he's smart speaking like that but he sounds like a dumbass. His vocabulary is very limited...He says stuff like "marketing", "legitimate", "comparison" and his favorite word, "Actual" over and over in every interview...He doesn't even answer questions properly...He just rambles on and on about nothing. I know the interviewer is looking at him like "WTF ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?" But he's too polite to say.

    • ber

      @ 50 IS DUMB: you fuckin right. these other guys just dont understand it.

    • NYC

      If he so dumb why they keep putting a mic in his face??? 50 is the most hated and he likes that....hiphops bad guy...and the funny thing is if 50 offered anyone on this site a job they would jump higher than kobe at the chance...lol...the day 50 dies is the day haters go back to church and repent

    • 50 IS DUMB

      All those people you named (except Waka/Boosie) can speak coherently...Watch their interviews compared to 50 Cent's interviews...There's a HUGE difference. Even in 50's raps the dude says the same rhymes like "Good/Hood", "Beretta/Chedda", "Snitch/Bitch". Stop making excuses for him. He needs to go finish high school or something...And money doesn't mean shit..He has advisers around him that help manage his money...You think the vitaman water thing was actually his idea?? You think anything he's done is his idea? Opportunities fall in your lap when you are lucky enough to sell records..Come on man, you give this guy too much credit...He's extremely stupid...And I bet you any money he'll be broke in a couple of years...His cash flow has been steadily decreasing since his 3rd album.

    • Yourahater

      Nigga he speaks better then most artist and ppl out here tf you talking about lol you probably a dick riding fan of niggas like lil wayne, lil b, lil boosie and waka flocka who all can't ever read or write. There use of words is 3x worst then 50 all I can say is this if the nigga can't speak then why the fuck he got that Vitamin water money??? Why the fuck this nigga in the top five richest artist on the forbes list??? smh you just another nigga who don't know shit so stop hating on niggas and shut the fuck up.

    he's more excited about boxing than he is about music at this point

  • Cris

    No disrespect Fif but the only reason you say Floyd is because you two are BFF's here are the GREATEST 1. Ali 2. Frazier 3. Foreman 4. Mickey Ward 5. Smokin' Joe Jackson basically 50 you are wrong and if you does release your album (probably be a mythical album like Detox that no one has heard but claims is dope) but yeah I doubt the "new" album comes out

  • ymcb

    why are you all hating on 50 cents opinions, its an opinion. Plus 50 cent is the realest rapper out since 2pac. you guys are clowns saying game this wutang this, who really is messing up 50 cent, no one wants it with him there all scared. IF you listen to his music, you know power of the dollar, get rich, massacre all amazing albums, curtis he gave the media want they wanted almost a hit everytrack on the album, bisd he went and put out something harder and it was good. He doesnt put his 100% into the lyrics anymore which is evident but when you hear him on certain tracks he brings it because he wanted to.

    • Yessir!

      That's wierd who's the realest because i remember How to rob he told us he would fuck them all up. But apperently some of those rappers he was dissing robbed him and beated him up instead.

    • wwezzy

      Thats true, 50 brings it when he feels like it. Cant take away from him thought, real dude realest rapper.

  • itsme

    obviously fif aint the hottest nigga around in the game for the last few years. But its funny how niggaz act like he never made a bunch of hits not to mention some decent mixtapes just recently. I mean cmon, i get money was in 2007 and baby by me was like in 2010 or what? Dude is still goin strong if you ask me

  • Malc

    To Clear things up.....ALI IS NOT THE GREATEST! Not by charater OR numbers! Joe Louis' numbers ARE WAY better than Ali's. and while Ali didn't go to Nam(respet to his choice), but Joe Louis fought a NAZI IN WW2 FOR AMERICA!!!!! AND WHOOPED HIS ASS!!! FOR AMERICA!!! GOOGLE IT!!!! Joe Louis= G.O.A.T

    • Art-illery

      Don't forget to add that Max and Joe became the best of friends after their battles. Max even financed Joe's funeral.

    There ain't a muhammad Ali of our times, there's only one Ali a very distinct sports man who resemmbles knowbody active today. His success is not just limited to what he achieved in the ring but what he stood for, which drew him far apart from the ordinary. And he truely is the Greatest Of All Times!

    I've been reading a lot of these comments and i feel like a lot of the people that comment on 50's articles and try dissing him, in all reality they're fans of his. Everybody wanna comment on 50 saying all he rap about is guns and money. That's definitely funny to me because if u listen to the music that's being played today, you would know that everybody in the rap game raps about money and guns. There's not 1 song on the radio where u don't hear niggas talking about money and guns so, stop hating on 50. That nigga making money while yall sitting behind a computer screen hating. Grow up and get a life. That nigga 50 is filthy rich. Honestly, i mess wit 50 music a lot. At least he's real. I would pick 50 over the whole young money, the whole mmg, and every other new nigga. I'm just keeping it 100

    • Kanye West

      Same here bro I feel that 50 is my favorite because hes the last real nigga who went big. But you always gotta remember Lloyd Banks is top 5. I would know because all I make is G.O.O.D. Music!!!

    First off, after Get Rich or Die Trying(the album) and Beg For Mercy, I stopped listening to 50cent. Dude, you fell off musically! Oh yeah, Ali the G.O.A.T. He fought legends, had classic fights, is a man that stood for something. Who Floyd fought besides DeLaHoya? Floyd scared to fight Paquiao cause he may catch an L. He good, but he ain't all that.

      I guess you didn't check his mixtapes War Angel and The Big Ten. Both were amazing and put him back in the streets but I think he's been focusing on movies and that Street King movement so on the music side he's kinda been absent.

    I hope it does come out cause the industry aint supporting real niggas anymore they were fucking with jeezy for a while last time i checked he was doing a film with arnold schwarzenegger and sylvester stallone music is just his sie bitch now but good luck 50
