Now that he’s become an independent artist, 50 Cent is in full promotion mode for his upcoming album, Animal Ambition, arriving later this summer.
The rapper’s newly-revamped website features the official artwork for his highly-anticipated set, which has a growling lion on the cover.
In addition, 50 plans to give fans two new tracks — “Hold On” and “Don’t Worry Bout It,” featuring Yo Gotti — which will be released March 18 along with every album pre-order. Every week, in fact, the rapper will release a new track, leading up to the album’s release on June 3.
If you can’t wait until next week, concert footage has surfaced online of 50 previewing “Hold On” Tuesday night during Hangwith.com’s showcase at SXSW in Austin, Texas. 50 told Billboard that the album is all about “prosperity.”
“It’s the positive and negative effects of prosperity. If I’m doing too good, it’s actually not good in front of people,” said 50 Cent. “Prosperity makes them think you’re doing better than them, that brings envy and jealousy, which then brings negative energy. You will constantly go, ‘Wow, I know why you said that right there.’ You get an effect of prosperity in each song; even the celebrations, which are inspired by things going on the right way.”
