Rap icon 50 Cent, who had once proudly claimed that he won’t retire, seems to be going back on his decision. The acclaimed hip-hop artist took to his Instagram to tease the loyal fans of his retirement from music, saying his new album might be his last. The multi-platinum rap veteran also did not shy away to include himself in the ‘Top 10 Dead or Alive’ list.
The 46-year-old rapper had shared the big news while posting a promotional video for his Branson Cognac on Monday, December 20. In the video, 50 Cent can be seen entering Drai’s Nightclub in Las Vegas as he performs there before hitting the road again. Speaking of his new album, the hip-hop legend has not spilled the details on the features and on the release date. The former G-Unit lead’s last album was released in 2014 with ‘Animal Ambition’. 50 Cent since then has entered into TV space, movies, and other businesses.

 Is 50 Cent's music career over?

Taking his fans by surprise, 50 Cent dropped the retirement bomb saying, “Smile my next album might be my last” while adding a laughing emoticon. He continued, “I terrorized hip hop for 14 years, don’t believe me Nielsen, the numbers will never lie but i’m nobody’s favorite Smh.” He concluded, “Nah I’m Top 10 dead or alive and i’m not done.”
In July, 50 Cent told The Independent about his plans of releasing new music. He shared that he was the “most exciting person” on the album adding that he won’t spill the beans on the artistes he had lined up for the same. 50 Cent disappointed his fans after he revealed that his new album won’t be the long-delayed ‘Street King Immortal’ assuring that it won’t see the light of the day.
50 Cent, whose legal name is Curtis James Jackson III, was discovered by Eminem and was signed to the Shady Records under the aegis of Dr. Dre's Aftermath Entertainment and Interscope Records. 50 Cent became one of the world’s best-selling rappers right after his debut album ‘Get Rich or Die Tryin’ broke several records on the charts in 2003. He has so far dropped five solo studio albums and sold over 30 million albums worldwide. The Grammy-winning rapper has also won 13 Billboard Music Awards, six World Music Awards, three American Music Awards and four BET Awards.


‘You were relevant for 3 years’

Social media users did not hesitate at all to mock 50 Cent for him saying that he terrorized hip-hop for 14 years. “Terrorized you were relevant for 3 years”, trolled one user as another chimed in, “You were relevant in music for 3 years I give you get rich or die trying it's a classic album I give you the g unit album and st valentine's day massacre is decent but after that zero credit you became a business man and actor I respect that but definitely not 14 years in music.”
The next one posted, “If this is going to be yo last album just makes singles every now then for yo true fan. Salute and respect from Columbia SC, 803.” One user stated, “You not even sure.... Make no mistake you have been my favorite since childhood king.” Another stated, “If indeed this is gonna be your last ever album please please please have Em, Dre and Snoop as producers and as featured artists Been waiting to hear a song with Dre ever since New Day many years ago.” One tweeted, “That’s it? This is the outro? Nobody’s favorite? Don’t say that in LA… u might get a buck 50 cross the face”, as another shared, “Terrorized hip hop for the last 14 years, I don't think so 50.” Meanwhile, one concluded, “Your first album was for the streets , everything else was for the suburbs.”
