50 Cent is restoring that feeling again.
Between reassembling the mighty G-Unit and releasing his first album in five years, 50 is far more relevant now than he was a year ago. And that’s no slight. As if his epic Summer Jam performance wasn’t proof enough, then it’s the wild takeover that he and his G-Unit familia have triumphantly embarked on, spawning three high powered remixes with plans for new music. He’s back and these next coming months will prove whether or not he’s better than ever.
His latest album, Animal Amibtion, isn’t even a month old and the rap mogul already has plans to “1998 DMX” the rap game with his much anticipated next release, Street King Immortal. On Monday, 50 revealed to Hot 93 in Connecticut that the album would arrive on September 16th. Though details about the long-gestating LP has been discreet, the “Hold On” rapper happened to actually describe the feel of the new record to REVOLT, calling it his most “personal” project.
“Street King Immortal is a more personal project for me,” he says. “I’ve offered some of the pieces [in rhymes] to strengthen up over the way, like ‘coming up I was confused, my momma kissing a girl’ [on “Hate It Or Love It”] and some of those pieces were placed there so if someone had this information then it would already be desensitized.”
Where Animal Ambition was filled with his signature aggressive content, SKI sounds like it’s the real secret weapon of his that will prove he’s better than ever. Either that or the new G-Unit LP.
