50 Cent has had enough of delays on his fifth album. The G-Unit leader, who released his new mixtape The Lost Tape yesterday, spoke with AllHipHop about plans to drop his consistently pushed back LP on July 3rd regardless of label support.
“There’s a lot more business involved [in putting out an album] than the general public is aware of. And that part causes the actual delay with [Interscope]. I’m releasing my album July 3rd, whether is has commercial promotions or not,” he said. “My birthday is July 6 and I planned for it. And I’m doing everything that I planned to do regardless if its huge airplay or not. I could care less, I’m putting the record out.”
Fif stressed that he doesn’t need to sell records and that he wants to simply put out the album to keep his career moving.
“I don’t need a record to sell. How much money you think I’ma make off record sales? You think I’ma sell 13 million records? Its starting to feel like that corner that I left,” he continued. “I ain’t going to keep sitting on the records. Even if everything ain’t in order, album five will be out July 3 and they can wait another two years for me to give them another one.”
