The rapper revealed Monday he was planning to release another album July 18 until higher powers stepped in.
"Em didn't agree with me," 50 said of his Shady Records boss while on the set of Mary J. Blige's "Enough Cryin' " video. "My motivation wasn't really right. I get a little frustrated from time to time and I got so much material that I make that isn't being heard that I was like, 'Yo, I just wanna release an album again.' And he was like, 'Nah, you gotta wait.' I don't care about none of that [timing], I just want the record to go out, but it just makes better sense to take our time and re-create the new album."
50's got an album's worth of material in the can but expects none of it will make his next record when it's finally released.
"By the time the summer passes, the music that I planned to release will be dated to me and I'll have so many new ideas that I wanna write something else," he explained. "I don't ever receive the credit I'm supposed to receive for my music. I receive all the checks I'm supposed to receive, I just don't receive all the trophies. But I'm cool with it. I just look at it like I should continue to dominate with it more. I'll get lifetime-achievement awards opposed to best-new-artist awards, so it's cool."
If it were up to 50, he'd also be awarded as a label boss, as running G-Unit takes a massive amount of his time.
"I've sacrificed a lot for my actual camp," he explained. "I'll have an album and do three videos ... and the album will be over. Even though I put together 21 cuts [for 2005's The Massacre], which is a double album, and there's easily another three records on there that I could be shooting visuals for, I stopped shooting in order to move to the next project, to make sure that everybody around me is in a great space creatively and financially. So for me it's a definite sacrifice."
