50 Cent Will Release New Album July 3 Despite Interscope’s Concerns

    50 Cent is determined to have a good birthday, regardless of Interscope Records. The rapper says that he will release long awaited fifth album this July, even if his label tries to stop him.

    50 Cent recently told AllHipHop, “There’s a lot more business involved than the general public is aware of…. I’m releasing my album July 3rd, whether it has commercial promotions or not. 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.” Interscope has repeatedly postponed the release of the album, which will close out 50 Cent’s five-album deal with the label.

    Just yesterday 50 Cent released his new mixtape with DJ Drama, The Lost Tape: Gangsta Grillz. Stream or download the tape over at DatPiff. [AHH]
