50 Cent thinks we could see another MC sell a million copies in the first week before 2008 is over: and that’s him! He plans on dropping his next solo LP, Before I Self-Destruct, within the next few months.
“Fourth quarter,” he said of the release date. “I got some music. But I’mma make music until I reach a closing date. I’mma stay creative and continue to try and progress.
“I want to focus on the positive, and I feel I’m one of the more vocal people in hip-hop,” he added. “Even when it’s not about music, people pay attention to me, because I have something to offer. I’ll continue to create quality music at a pace they haven’t seen.”
This past Fourth of July, 50 supplied the perfect music for the holiday weekend barbecues, his latest mixtape, Sincerely Southside. Fif inserts his vocals on classic R&B songs such as Yarbrough and Peoples’ “Don’t Stop the Music” and Alicia Myers’ “I Want to Thank You.”
“I did that when I was on the movie set of ‘Microwave Park,’ ” he said. “That’s why Banks and Yayo wasn’t on it. … That music is timeless. Undeniable music. To put it in a row where it’s some of my favorite songs there and add a piece of me to it, I think it’s exciting. I can bear listening to it, regardless of the setting I’m in. Everything I’m listening to isn’t hip-hop music.”
The Queens warlord also promised that a G-Unit Gangsta Grillz with DJ Drama is still on the horizon.
“The DJ Drama tape is probably gonna come, obviously after the G-Unit album,” he explained.
