50 Cent just released his long-awaited Dj Drama mixtape The Lost Tape and spoke with AllHipHop about plans to drop his consistently pushed back LP on July 3rdregardless of label support. The G-Unit leader stated,”There’s a lot more business involved [in putting out an album] than the general public is aware of. And that part causes the actual delay with [Interscope]. I’m releasing my album July 3rd, whether is has commercial promotions or not,” he said. “My birthday is July 6 and I planned for it. And I’m doing everything that I planned to do regardless if its huge airplay or not. I could care less, I’m putting the record out.”
50 Cent the elaborated that he doesn’t need to sell records, but instead he needs to keep his career moving with his next album. The album is still untitled and plans to drop July 3rd with or without a label.
