G-Unit’s 50 Cent has been long teasing everyone about his fifth studio album and upcoming follow-up to Before I Self Destruct, with his latest announcement being a comparison to Dr. Dre’s Detox album.
50 Cent claims that his follow-up album to Before I Self Destruct will be his “Detox” album.
Many believe that this metaphor used by 50 Cent could symbolize that the rapper is preparing for retirement, while others believe he’s simply saying his album will take time like Dr Dre’s much delayed ‘Detox’ album because they’re both looking for the album to be their best work.
50 Cent actually hints of this when he states that his ‘Detox’ album could take 10 years before it drops.
Lately though, 50 Cent has been tweeting hints that the album is coming along like this posted tweet by 50 Cent this month claiming, “I’m on some new sh*t my album is coming along get ready for a classic.”
One thing is for sure, the expectations are high at this point and the anticipation is just as high.
Meanwhile, 50 Cent and Soulja Boy have dropped a new collab entitled “Mean Mug” while Dr Dre, who’s hinted at his ‘Detox’ album being his last album, is slated to be dropping in 2011, possibly early in the year around February.
