The first two ’05 releases coming from the hip-hop empire will be Game’s The Documentary and 50 Cent’s Valentine’s Day Massacre, which drop on January 18 and February 15, respectively.
“I went in and did like 14, 15 records,” 50 said of his new album. “Then I put those records aside and started over. I went out to L.A. and worked with Dre. We got some special joints so I’m excited right now. I know I’m gonna exceed everyone’s expectations on this project because they feel like Get Rich or Die Tryin’ was the best I could do. I got something up my sleeve.”
“It is pretty much the same technique — we go in, I have some tracks ready and he just comes in and does his thing,” Dre explained.
“I think the last time we worked [it took] what, about a week?” the Doc continued, looking at 50 and getting a head nod from his partner. “We just worked about a week on the record and I think we put in about two weeks this time. “You know what’s going to happen — it is going to be crazy.”
“You know what’s going to happen,” 50 laughed. “I guarantee this album will be 10 times better than my first record. It’s a little more complex. Now that I know people are listening, I can articulate and write the things I wanna write. My first record, I was just trying to have fun with it and express my actual situations. I write about the harsh realities. I’m just interested in seeing how they respond to it.”
