Why Did 50 Cent Hold A Secret Listening Session In L.A.?


Last night (May 5), 50 Cent held a private listening session at the Capitol Records office in L.A. Over the past year, 50, along with Lloyd Banks, Young Buck, Tony Yayo and new addition Kidd Kidd, has been promoting G-Unit’s reunion and their most recent project The Beast Is G-Unit. However, this session had nothing to do with his hometown crew. The “Wealthiest Hip-Hop Artist” played his long-anticipated album Street King Immortal.

50’s seventh studio album is set to feature his new collaboration with Eminem called “Champions.” Word on the street is that 50 is finally ready to drop his new body of work this year. In a recent interview with Real 92.3’s Big Boy, 50 addressed the status of the album and claimed that he’s had it ready but held back the release to make some minor adjustments. With the “surprise release” trend popping off thanks to Drake and Young Thug, it’s possible that the Queens rapper could follow suit. We’ll have to wait on 50 to make his next move.
