50 confirms that his much-discussed project has been nixed.
50 Cent confirmed previous indications that his album, Black Magic, has been shelved.
The follow-up to his 2009 album, Before I Self Destruct, was originally reported to have rock and dance influences, but not it seems fans will never get to listen to it.
“I moved ‘Black Magic’, because it’s a total artist’s album. It was something that I just wanted to do, so I went in and recreationally made a full-bodied piece of work," said the Queens emcee to Redbulletin magazine.
50 gave hints on a change in musical direction with earlier songs, like his Timbaland-produced song, "Ayo Technology," which featured Justin Timberlake.
“I gave myself a new concept, so now it’s in the vault,” added Fif.
50 didn't rule out the possibility of fans getting to hear any of the work from the album. “But you can build another album out of that material that you put to the side.”
