50 Cent

In addition to debuting two new songs off his upcoming fifth album Animal Ambition, 50 Cent has rolled out visuals for both. In the Eif Rivera-directed clip for “Hold On,” the rap mogul shows the rewards of prosperity, but still remains connected to his roots, waking up in bed with two chicks before riding through the ‘hood in a fur.

Despite his fall out with Tony Yayo, the G-Unit member also makes a cameo.

“The releases of ‘Hold On’ and ‘Don’t Worry ‘Bout It’ officially kick off Animal Ambition‘s launch,” said 50 in a statement. “This album has been a long time coming, and I am looking forward to sharing this body of work with my fans.”

The video for “Don’t Worry ‘Bout It” featuring Yo Gotti will premiere at 4 p.m. EST today on VEVO.

Animal Ambition is set for release on June 3.

New Music: 50 Cent – ‘Hold On’

50 Cent

After debuting the song at SXSW earlier this week, 50 Cent unleashes the studio version of “Hold On,” the first of two new songs off his upcoming independent album Animal Ambition: An Untamed Desire to Win.

“I got the Midas touch, sometimes it’s hard as hell not to touch stuff,” boasts Curtis.

On Tuesday, he will also release the Yo Gotti-assisted “Don’t Worry ‘Bout It.” A new track will drop each Tuesday until May 20, while the album arrives June 3 featuring a collaboration with Trey Songz (“Smoke”).

In an interview with Billboard, Fif explained the project’s concept.

“This album is prosperity. It’s the positive and negative effects of prosperity,” he said. “If I’m doing too good, it’s actually not good in front of people. Prosperity makes them think you’re doing better than them, that brings envy and jealousy which then brings negative energy.”

Video: 50 Cent – ‘The Funeral’

50 Cent

50 Cent is leaving the past behind. After severing ties with Interscope/Shady/Aftermath and going independent, the rap mogul has released the cinematic video for “The Funeral,” the first release under his new deal.

“It’s a concept for a story I wrote that’s written like film where it’s not all talk and one piece,” explained 50. “There’s a lot of flashbacks. It starts at the end and goes back like the movies.”

His first indie album Animal Ambition drops June 3. On March 18, fans will be able to pre-order the album and receive two instant tracks, while the videos will premiere online.

As part of his new agreement, he will pay Caroline/Capitol/UMG only 7% of wholesale per album in exchange for distribution and support.

“It’s freedom to invest in your own ideas,” he told Forbes. “If ever I had a horse that I was betting on at the track, I’d like to be the horse. Let it be me, goddammit, because I’m going to run as hard as I can.”
