50 Cent's Street King Immortal album will arrive in stores on February 26 via Shady/Aftermath/Interscope.
The disc is 50's final album obligation under his current contract with Interscope. In a new interview with Billboard, he explains the album's delay and why he wouldn't mind remaining at the company after it's released.
"All the success I've had has been with Interscope, so of course I'd stay where I'm comfortable," he says. "It took a little longer than we needed with business affairs at Interscope to get everything done. [The offices now have] new people I have to get acquainted with," 50 added, referring to John Janick being named president/COO of Interscope Geffen in October.
The business mogul also talks about how Occupy Wall Street influenced him while establishing Street King energy shots and SMS Audio. Every energy shot sold provides a meal for a hungry child abroad through the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP). For each domestic purchase of a headphone at smsaudio.com, SMS donates 250 meals to those in need here in America through a partnership with Feeding America.
"[When] I was developing the market for [Street King], [there] was a lot of protesting going on -- Occupy Wall Street, L.A. and Chicago, all those different places -- so it was really visible how people felt major corporations didn't actually care about them," he says. "It felt like the right thing to do."
