50 Cent has dished some deets about his upcoming new album. Titled Black Magic, Fiddy says it will be the “final requirement” for his deal with Interscope Records. He’s been outspoken over how his label has delayed its release, and says “I had some difficulties with the actual system. There are people there that are afraid to lose their job; they’ve seen other people get fired. I think they’re afraid to make some decisions that need to be made right away, they just sit and look.” (Via MTV UK)
