50 Cent May Cancel Album + Ludacris Gives Back
So it looks like 50 Cent's Black Magic album may never come to life. Why he's thinking about cancelling his album and what Ludacris did to give back when you read on.
Black Magic was supposed to be 50's fifth album, but after recording some tracks overseas as well as in the states he's considering cancelling the album.
50 talks about his album in an interview with Rolling Stone Brasil and why he wants to cancel it.
I’ve written an album that’s called Black Magic, but I am not sure it will be my next album. Since I’ve made it back to America after recording in the UK and different territories since I was on the road, I started writing different material that don’t quite fit that concept.
He also added:
Black Magic had a different style to it, a different vibe. I was playing with different song structures, music from different genres like rock music. The way rock music allows the energy to decrease and then comeback to high energy..i was getting music that had that kind of vibe to it. I did some things that were a little dance inspired, the tempo was higher. Just playing with a lot of things.
Since, I got back, I’ve been writing things that don’t fit that [concept].
He compared his album to Eminem's Relapse 2 album that never came out and instead he made Recovery.
To give you an example, Eminem's Recovery album. He had Relapse and Relapse 2 and I recorded for him on part two but because I was on tour with him during Recovery, we didn't get a chance to work together on that album but he re-wrote the album.
Here's a video of the full interview here:
Whatever you put out Fif, I just hope it's good.
