The Queens rapper still pushing repetitive nihilism and G-Unit production styles instead of branching out and taking chances with his music.
50 Cent is a noted disciple of self-help guru Robert Greene’s Machiavellian handbook, The 48 Laws of Power. Not only has the muscle-bound hip-hop colossus modeled his career after the cutthroat guide, he’s working with Greene on a street-flavored addendum called The 50th Law. So far, the four dozen over-the-top credos have worked swimmingly for 50: He’s sold more than 20 million albums worldwide since 2003 while pulling in auxiliary profits with Vitamin Water and other less amusing side hustles.
Not nearly as disappointing as the notorious sales contrast with Kanye would suggest, alas, Curtis was the watershed moment when 50 Cent's hype and persona overtook him. "Ayo Technology" may have gotten decent traction as a Timberlake/Timbaland collabo, all the rage in the mid '00s, but this approach nearly muted the grit and bombast that had previously given 50 a pass for otherwise thriving by club beats

50 Cent also want to relese his hidden remix of Lloyd Banks' gold hit 'Beamer, Benz or Bentley'(+Julez Santana).
50 Cent is working hard to create long time waited album 'Street King Immortal'. He choose to use his own material. 50 Cent recruited Timbaland from SMS, hit-maker Timbaland will create two beats fror 'SKI' album and will be feature in one song with Justin Timberlake. As we remember this trio did great song 'Ayo technology' in 2007.

One beat alredy released, you can listen it in song: 50 Cent-Get low(ft.jeremih, 2Chainz & T.I.)prod. by Remo the Hitmaker. But maybe this song not add to 'Street King Immortal' track-list.

50 Cent Opens Up On Founding SMS Audio, Beats, Headphone Market & More With CNBC
50 Cent's SMS Audio headphone company is one of the leaders in the growing premium headphone industry. The G-Unit mogul sit down with CNBC to talk about founding of SMS Audio headphones, Beats, headphone market and more.
Celebrity clothing lines, one of the first areas in which musicians branched out into retail, came with a sense of friendly competition. 50 said that he made the mistake of thinking that it might be the same with headphones, but he learned competition is much more aggressive in the headphone space.
"When Russell Simmons went into Phat Farm clothing, you saw Rocawear from Jay-Z, you saw Sean John from Puffy, you saw G-Unit from myself, and then numerous other companies," he said. "It showed us that you could successfully utilize the influence generated from music to market things other than music."
