50 Cent album has 'no fillers'

50 Cent is tight-lipped about the name of his next album

50 Cent believes his new album could be as "special" as his breakthrough Get Rich Or Die Tryin.

The 36-year-old New Yorker achieved mainstream success with his 2003 debut after teaming up with superstars Dr Dre and Eminem.

He has since put out three more successful records while also building up acting and entrepreneurial careers.

50 Cent - real name Curtis Jackson - has not released an album since 2009 and is excited about his new record, which is set to be released in July.

"I think it's great - arguably as good as the first album. But music marks time, so we'll see if my timing is right," he said.

"It's pretty much done. I don't want to shun opportunities (for people) to hear something that I feel is special, because I may out-do myself."

He added: "I'm excited because I took a lot longer this time and was a lot more calculated on this project. I'm saying what I really want to say to the general public as opposed to trying to just make the date and filling.

"There are no real album fillers on this, it's all stuff that I feel I need to have on this record."

Jackson remains tight-lipped about the title of the album.

"I haven't actually 'launched' the name for it," he said. "I know the name, but I haven't really put it out yet. I've got to figure out the right place to do it."

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
