Confirming his new LP's release schedule, 50 said, "Fourth quarter. I got some music. But I'mma make music until I reach a closing date. I'mma stay creative and continue to try and progress."
The rapper then also stated that he will keep on making quality music and delivering it to his fans as soon as possible. "I want to focus on the positive, and I feel I'm one of the more vocal people in hip-hop. Even when it's not about music, people pay attention to me, because I have something to offer. I'll continue to create quality music at a pace they haven't seen."
On his upcoming studio record, the rapper reportedly is teaming up with renown musicians and producers. Some of the names that have been tapped by 50 to produce tracks on his new LP are Timbaland, Swizz Beatz and Rich Harrison.
