50’s NEW ALBUM…
Didn’t it seem like 50 just dropped “Before I Self Destruct”?  Well if it did, then you’re not the only one…

BUT that isn’t stopping the G-Unit general from releasing his next project!

WOTS… the rapper has confirmed that his next CD will be called “Black Magic”  (he can use a little of magic… he didn’t have too much success w/ the last)

It looks like 50 may be goin for a different sound w/ this his next work. While in Europe he experienced a different style of tunes… (hello!  we call it DANCE/HOUSE!!!)

“It’s a little different music going on before I got there. They play your music when you come. But the music they played before they started playing a lot of what I created was more uptempo, more dance. I wanted to make a song like that. So I went into the studio.”
– 50 Cent

Sounds like he’s taking one out of Diddy’s book!

Welcome to the dance era… THANK GOD!
