Check out the latest installment of VEVO’s series Music Is My Sport, featuring 50 Cent. The hip-hop mogul speaks on his music, struggle, how things have changed and more.
50 Cent discusses the progression of developing his new single, “New Day” featuring Dr. Dre and Alicia Keys. Look for 50’s new album, Street King Immortal, in November.
As promised, 50 Cent has released his free album. A few months back 50 stated that he would be releasing his next project in July regardless of label support. Although these 10 new tracks aren’t as hot as The Lost Tape, there is one song that deserves an honorable mention: Roll That Shit (feat. Kidd Kidd). The next “official” album drops in November.
Here are a few new hot tracks to bump this weekend:
Lil Wayne follows up his weak Grammy performance with some hot new music for DJ Clue of Power 105.1. Grab a bottle and celebrate! #YMCMB
Earlier this week, Wiz dropped “Work Hard, Play Hard,” the first single from his sophomore album, “O.N.I.F.C.” The track was produced by Stargate (“Black and Yellow”) and Benny Bianco. It’s clear Wiz’s hometown (Pittsburgh) is where people work hard and play hard. If this isn’t your anthem this weekend, you ain’t on your grind!
50 Cent is getting ready to drop an upcoming Gangsta Grillz mixtape, The Lost Tape, with DJ Drama. There’s no doubt that this hot new track with Snoop & Precious Paris will be one of the best!
And last but certainly not least, Bow Wow releases his latest single from Underrated. With a feature from T-Pain, you can’t go wrong. #Underrated June 12th.
One of the most electric moments amongst the seemingly endless performances at SXSW must have been Eminem coming out to perform with 50 Cent and Tony Yayo. Check it out!
It’s been a hot minute since we’ve heard from 50 Cent. But now a new video has surfaced on youtube and 50 has announced that he is releasing a new energy drink called “Street King.” The proceeds from every sale will go to sending food to Africa. He hopes the drink is able to provide 50 BILLION MEALS to Africans over the next five years. The drink comes in two flavors: Orange Mango and Grape. Rumors suggest that the drink will cost around $3.00 and will hit the stores soon. Support the movement and learn more at www.streetking.com!
The jam to kick off your Friday night, the right way!

In an effort to promote the upcoming movie, Things Fall Apart, a trailer of the drama has been released. Things Fall Apart has been drawing attention since the summer of 2010, after photos of a much lighter 50 Cent emerged. In the film, 50 plays the role of a top college football player who is stricken with cancer. 50 also portrays a dreadlocked version of the lead character. Things Fall Apart is one of several films created under 50 Cent’s Cheetah Vision imprint—part of a $200 million joint venture with Lions Gate.
