50 Cent’s new album is on the move yet again.
The release date for Curtis is being pushed back one week: from September 4 to September 11, the MC’s label, Interscope Records, announced on Friday (July 13). In a press release, the label said the reason for the delay is because the previous date falls too close to the Labor Day holiday on September 3, and “the decision was made to push the release one week so that it is available everywhere at 10 a.m. on day of release.”
You may recall that a few weeks ago the album was moved from its original release date of June 26 due to some last-minute songs and the MC’s desire to release the LP all over the world simultaneously (see “50 Cent’s Curtis Release Pushed To September” ). Of course, the album is the first of two the MC currently has in the works (see “50 Cent Plans To Make Like Eminem And Disappear After Next Two LPs Drop” ).
50’s new video, “I Get Money,” debuted Friday afternoon on New York radio station Hot 97’s Web site and within minutes had found its way onto other Web sites. In the clip, 50 performs with his son, DJ, a slew of models and G-Unit members Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo and Mobb Deep, among others. As you can imagine, stacks of moolah are shown throughout.
50 called in to Hot 97 on Friday afternoon (although he kept referring to the album’s “September 4” release date). When asked if he had any comment for his fans, he replied: “I told y’all I’m hot, baby. They killin’ me, man! It’s all good.”
50 also has another song on the radio called “She Wants It,” which was produced by Timbaland and features Justin Timberlake (see “50 Cent Explains BET Awards Mishap: ’I Just Wasn’t Concentrating’ “ and “50 Cent Talks Timberlake Collabo, Star-Studded New LP Curtis“ ). Interscope says a video for that track is forthcoming.
