“Rock and roll’s been dead for a while, no?”
– Ezra Koenig
No word on when, or if, we’ll ever receive 50 Cent’s Street King Immortal album, but according to Huffington Post (via Miss Info) Fif is planning on releasing a different project in January.
He didn’t spill too many details, only saying that it wouldn’t be a mixtape, but also not quite an album…So it looks like we should just stay tuned for news on the project, which he says “inspired in a whole other direction.”
Apparently his musical tastes are ever expanding. “I’m not just into hip-hop, and really, hip-hop is the genre that pulls from all other genres. I appreciate the people who perform differently,” he said. “I remember hearing Ariana Grande for the first time and thinking, ‘Look at this shit!’ I’ve seen a lot of people create their music right in front of me, and I love hearing their live recordings and then seeing how it changes through different plug-ins and the whole recording process.”
