Ready for new music from 50 Cent?
Ready or not, the Queens rapper plans to drop music in 2023. 50 Cent hopped on social media on the first day of the new year to celebrate being named one of YouTube’s top-viewed artists in 2022.
Eminem topped the list at number one, with 5.1 billion views. 50 Cent was ranked at number eleven with 1.8 billion views. The “Get Rich or Die Trying” rapper released two songs last year, the Power Book IV theme song, "Power Powder Respect," featuring Lil Durk and Jeremih, and he was featured on Eminem's "Is This Love ('09)." 50’s last album was his 2020 Who Gon Pay Me.
In 50’s online post, celebrating the views, he said, “I didn’t put nothing out in a while (smirking emoji face).” He continued, “I would be mad if i was new and i wasn’t on the list (shrug emoji).
Other artists that made the list include, Doja Cat, Drake, NBA Young Boy, Lil Baby, Future, Nas, Juice WRLD, Nicki Minaj, and Lil Durk. Take a look:
Fif’s friends showered him with support; Snoop Dogg replied in the comment section, “nice, staying relevant.” Uncle Murda replied with green light emojis. A fan wrote, “please bring out some new tracks this year please. Man I miss your music.”
50 Cent hasn’t released music because he’s been focused on his television/movie empire. His hit show Power premiered in 2014, and since then, he’s created 25 shows in total. A few months back when 50 ended his STARZ deal, he said:
“Shout out to BET, I won Hustler of the Year. No one from music culture has had success in Television production. I have 25 shows now and I’ve made some big deals away from TV. I’m out of my deal at STARZ tomorrow.”
