Just a week ago 50 Cent tweeted that he will be releasing his fifth album on July 2, but before that the G-Unit general will follow up his December mixtape The Big 10 with another free project. Fif announced the news on his Twitter, revealing that DJ Drama will host The Lost Tape. ”I’m dropping another mix tape called the lost tape with DJ drama My first gangsta grillz mix tape,” 50 wrote on Wednesday (March 28).
The two artists have never collaborated on a Gangsta Grillz mixtape before, but their history in the game is enough to draw some attention.
In December Fifty dropped The Big 10, introducing his new G-Unit artists Kidd Kidd and Precious Paris. Although there’s been a noticeable delay between albums, the Queens rapper claims that he will drop two studio projects this year.
“I think I’d like to launch this record and come right back and launch another record following it” he said late in January. “It’s been three years since my last album, so I’ve recorded so much material that I’m really excited about trying to get those ideas to the general public so they get a chance to hear it and appreciate it.”
50 also made a lot of noise earlier this month, when Eminem joined him at SXSW to perform his classic album Get Rich or Die Tryin.
