50 Cent may have missed the original target date of February 15 for the release of his Massacre LP, however, the project is now coming to stores earlier than its rescheduled March 8 release. With the album leaking to the Internet and streets on Monday, Interscope says to look for the latest 50 Cent LP a few days earlier, on March 3.
The track causing the most stir since the album hit the black market has been the highly anticipated “Piggy Bank.” 50 has done a ton of press in advance of the song, telling the world he was going to state “facts” about Fat Joe, Nas, Jadakiss, Ja Rule and Shyne (see “All Eyes On 50 Cent: The Sequel”).
What 50 calls “facts” some others will call “disses,” as the G-Unit captain raps, “That fat n—a thought ‘Lean Back’ was ‘In Da Club’/ My sh– sold 11 mil, his sh– was a dud/ Jada, don’t f— with me if you want to eat/ ‘Cause I’ll do your little ass like Jay did Mobb Deep.”
Later, 50 takes aim at hip-hop’s latest newlyweds, scoffing, “Kelis says her milkshake bring all the boys to the yard/ Then Nas went and tattooed the bitch on his arm.”
As the record closes, 50 dares anyone who may have caught feelings because of the song to “do something now” — “You gotta so do something/ C’mon, man, everybody’s listening.”
Fat Joe says he will definitely respond to 50 Cent on his LP, All or Nothing, due March 3 (see “Fat Joe Pushes Back LP, Changes Title To All Or Nothing“ ). The other parties were unable to be reached for comment.
