50 Cent Says He Wants To Bring A "Different Energy" To "5" But Also Has A Back Up Plan For The Album

50 Cent reveals that we can expect some "oddball features" as well as a "different energy" with "5 (Murder By Numbers)."

During an appearance at the WGCI Coke Lounge in Chicago, Queens rapper 50 Cent made some interesting comments about his upcoming album 5 (Murder By Numbers). According to Fifty he’s taking a different route for this album and has even recruited what he calls a few “oddball features.”

The rapper also revealed that if his current plans for the album fall through he also has a Plan B ready.

“It’s exciting cause I wanted to do something that had a different energy to it,” 50 Cent explained. “Creatively, I kinda created a new little thing to do musically with myself. It’s like oddball features. It’s not exactly what you would expect immediately from me so it’ll be interesting. I’m kinda testing it because I have a Plan B back at the crib. I recorded so many records.”

While speaking to the audience 50 Cent also went in to detail on the process of picking tracks for his albums.

“About 30 songs,” said 50 Cent when asked how many songs he creates for his albums. “Before I put out 12 records it’s about 30 records laying there. I pick the better ones of everything that I’ve done. I kinda repeat myself a little bit. Like I make song [that’s] a street record and I go, ‘Which one of these records is the best street record that I made?’”

5 (Murder By Numbers) is expected to be released on July 3rd.

    Thats the name of Game's new album, "F.I.V.E.". Wow 50.....dickride much?

    Oh and as far as WTT, that strategy made no sense because the people who went looking for it on the first day couldn't find it. So you had to go to Itunes, which is fine, but it just seems like a ploy for rappers to call their project successful when in the old days if an artist said his album was coming out Tuesday, it came out, and it sold according to the hype. There was no putting it on-line to test your audience to see if they were feelin it.

    The Carter IV was released digitally at what midnight? Then it came out the next day. The point was alot of indie artists release CD's digitally "first" which to me makes no sense. It's like they're testing the waters instead of just standing behind their work and letting the sales fall where they may. 50's sold millions. You mean to tell me somebody worth 300 million dollars can't get an album released in stores???

    I aint gonna lie i cant wait to hear it Its quite exciting because 50 always changes up and you dont know what his gonna come with Most rappers now make the same songs over and over again with the same exact people Nothing new with a few But wait till 50 come through

    I love this business tactic. 50 says the label doesnt support him so he can only put an album out digitally. If it flops he can blame the label, if it succeeds he can say he won. I believe this is a test by Interscope to try digital only distribution by one of its bigger artists. It worked perfect for Jay-Z and Kanye. I bet any money this album isnt gonna leak. Literally no one loses money in this deal. You dont have to worry about packaging or distribution. Record stores cant whine because 50 is making it look like he has no other choice. And if its successful then theyll put it in stores. This is the future its just making it look like something its not.

    This is why hip hop is dieing, all these chart niggas need to die asap.

  • Trent

    You guys really hate 50 that much? I really enjoy his music. I know everyone has a different opinion but it seems like you guys go from riding a artist's dick to each other's dicks.. use your brain and make up your own opinion. If you're one of those people saying 50 is just going for sales please tell me why he makes a music video for almost every song on his mixtapes and released BIG 10 and The Lost Tape.. Free music.. obviously sales are his most important goal right? Cause he's not already STUPID rich. Dude makes new music - you guys say he fell off Dude makes street music - you guys say he sayin' the same old shit Anyways.. DL Big 10 and The Lost Tape - then get this album.. stop hatin' and just listen

  • big jose

      I just think his ego is so big that he's scared to flop cause that will bring the sharks out and i feel he knows that

  • Anonymous

    u people r dumb he is releasing it digitally cuz the label isnt supporting it, they want him to push it back to make sure the marketing strategy to promote it is proper so he meets his finale album requirements, he dont care if it dont sell that much he is putting it out to show his fans he is still passionate about making music

    "its the new way no leaks example carter 4 watch the throne" REAL artists release an album in stores. Fuck all this digital bullshit. It's like artists who do that are afraid that their shit is gonna flop, so they go for a quick buck on-line, then add those totals to their first week sales to make it look bigger. Yes, Jay and Kanye did the same thing, but in their case, they knew they were going to sell big regardless.

    • Anonymous

      what? carter 4 didnt flop or wtt and they went digital first when you press up a cd before the album drops it will get leaked a month early because it takes time to get it out to the stores on the release date and by then you are fucked

    Releasing it digitally will almost surely be a new low for Fiddy, and will only delay the inevitable first week numbers flop. He should have gotten out from under Lovine by now and signed to another label that is still interested in his vision, cause Interscope isn't. They're going to jerk this guy around like Game and laugh while doing it.

  • E-Lie

    Im 99% certain he's releasing it digitally first. In one interview they asked him if it was definitely coming out on 7/3 and he said yea but then only mentioned AMAZON and iTUNES as retailers. Hence, why it hasnt leaked yet either.

    • B Sauce

      He talked about trying not to leak bisd by adding the "movie" to the disc so ppl don't dl it, because ppl don't want to dl a big ass movie as compared to just the 14somethin odd tracks. So it might be digital first week, lot's of artists are doing it nowadays.

  • ab

    Theres no way this cd is coming out on July 3rd. Theres no single out yet def no album coming on that date..and a Plan B means he doesn't know what the fuck is going on with the album
