After being challenged if he can top his highly successful debut album Get Rich Or Die Trying, 50 acknowledged it was a tough challenge yet vowed the upcoming album will stand the test of time.
“I know its my best album but its long 19 cuts” said 50. “I’m not bothered by doubt people have expressed that to me all my life. It only enhances the feeling of victory in the end.”
