50 Cent is strongly suggesting that he will be retiring from rap after his last album “Street King Immortal.”
The New York rap mogul is dropping a lot less music these days and you can’t blame him. With the success of his acting career, things seems to be moving towards Hollywood for 50 Cent. This year he had one of the hottest shows on TV, Power. Speaking with Muscle & Fitness magazine, the hip hop titan didn’t just talk about how he build and maintained his muscles, but he also opened up about his rap and acting career.
“I want to finish with [Street King Immortal],” he said. “I don’t want to write another record after that. You know how some artists got to have confirmation that they’re right. I have that confirmation in f**king 35, 40 million [albums] that I already sold.”
50 Cent first announced the project from back in 2011 and went on to release one album since then, Animal Ambition in 2014. That last project didn’t saw the same success of his previous platinum releases.
Fifty also recently hinted that he will be quitting his hugely successful TV series Power after getting snubbed by the Golden Globe. “I’m off the POWER train, champ is gonna do the show,” he wrote on Instagram. “Go to him for more info, I gotta do something different.#EFFENVODKA.”
He continued to rant in another post, writing “I’m on the move again, Golden globe’s can s*ck a d**k. I accept my series POWER was not intended to be a signature show for the network but it is the highest rated show. I know my audience very well, I’m done promoting this out side of contractual obligations. SEASON 4 KANAN MUST DIE, I got other sh*t to do.”
Whether or not he is serious, we will have to wait on season 4 of Power to see what will happen to his character Kanan.
