"The next project, Street King Immortal, was already written before I wrote [Animal Ambition: An Untamed Desire To Win]," 50 Cent says during an interview with The Daily Buzz. "That’s how I know to write it like this. Street King Immortal will actually be out in September. I have a real strict schedule. I’m going to be moving around a lot. It’s going to be a lot of work."
50 Cent says that he did did not aim to attract the female audience with Animal Ambition.
“The overall outline for it was prosperity," he says of Animal Ambition. "I wrote [about] all the effects of it because after the success I’ve had in my career people only see the positive sides. They don’t get a chance to see things happening in your circle. I offered it all on this actual project. I kept it specifically the way it is. I made female references but I didn’t make music aimed at the female audience."
