50 Goes In A New Direction?

50 Goes In A New Direction?

50 Cent has a lot on his plate lately- Movies, books, video games and,
oh yeah, music. With all the recent hubbub of singings over at G-Unit
Records, will 50 have to change his winning formula?

“I’m kinda going left a little bit, but not too far from where my
audience already embraced me,” he said to MTV. “Anything that changes
too fast is no good. You shouldn’t expect me to come to you with my
next album totally different from what you already know. In the
history of music there hasn’t been an artist that’s successful — I did
my research, so trust me — that put out an album that was themed with
a split personality or more than one type of personality.”

50 cited many artists in the past who tried to go too many directions
and failed.

“Ask Nelly about Sweat and Suit,” he said. “There’s been a few —
Tracey Lee’s [Many Faces], Cassidy’s Spilt Personality — none of those
projects work because the general public typecasts. So when you give
them something that isn’t what they want, they’ll be like, ‘No, that
isn’t want I wanted. I don’t care what you feel like today.’ ”

So it looks like if Ma$e, M.O.P. and Mobb Deep ain’t broke, then don’t
fix it. In the meanwhile, “Hustla’s Ambition” from the soundtrack of
“Get Rich or Die Tryin'” has just been leaked to the net. But the
first official single for the soundtrack will be “Window Shopper.”
