It looks like fans of 50 Cent may have to wait a bit longer to hear his long-awaited Street King Immortal. Now, in a recent interview with MoneyBagBlake, the Queens rapper’s final LP with Interscope has been pushed back.
Fif said that the previously announced released date of November 13 has been pushed back to an as-of-yet unspecified date. Still, he said that the album is completed, and the only reason it’s been pushed back is due to unrelated financial issues.
“It was scheduled to release November 13, but we had to move the date,” he said. “For this album, it’s already been a year late. It’s usually two years in my cycle that I go [between albums]…this cycle was actually a lot longer because it’s the final album requirement for Interscope and we went through an audit type of situation…now everybody’s ready to work, so it’s ready to come out.”
Fiddy also gave some interesting information on Dr. Dre’s long-awaited Detox. He said that he doesn’t think Dr. Dre is motivated enough to release a full length project and may simply cut the album down to an EP.
“I don’t if [Dr. Dre]’s even excited to do [Detox] now,” he said. “He’s successful with Jimmy [Iovine] with Beats [Headphones], so I’m not sure if he’s pressed [to release it]. I know that when I did [see him] last when I was in Los Angeles, he was actually in the studio working on something else. I’m not sure if he’s going to actually release a full CD or if he wants to just release the music that he’s comfortable with – he might do an EP or something.”
