50 Cent To Release Two Albums This Year

Recently, while filming a video with G-Unit, 50 Cent said it was he who gave Eminem the idea to release two albums this year. Fif is taking credit for that — you’re welcome, America. The Queens MC also said he’s going to do the same thing.

“What they don’t know … the new announcement is that I’m dropping two albums,” Fif smiled. “I’ve had an opportunity to record since I thought I was releasing an album in December. But the portion of my record that I recorded with Dr. Dre was incomplete, because there was no opportunity to mix it. The only song that was mixed that I worked on with Dr. Dre is ‘I Get It In’ — that one is out now. It’s cool, but I need the rest of them to be mixed before I can present my project to the public.”

Fif projects Before I Self Destruct to drop in June, after Eminem’s Relapse hits stores on May 19 — and 50’s second album will come one month after Em’s, according to the current game-plan.

When asked to describe the concept of the upcoming “Crack a Bottle” video, 50 didn’t say much. “The concept … this video is very artistic. It’s an idea that Em and [his manager] Paul [Rosenberg] agreed on. It’s exciting.”

And …?

“So you want me to tell what it is?” 50 laughed. “I’m not telling you.”

Fif is set to join Fall Out Boy on tour in Dallas on April 14.
