Rapper 50 Cent has announced that his new album ‘Curtis’ has been pushed back from June 26th to September 4th. Citing his International following as the reason for the delay, the G-Unit leader said ‘I’m an international artist…my fans worldwide deserve to receive my album at the same time as my fans here in the U.S. Taking that into consideration moving the album to September was a necessary course of action.’
This news isn’t all that surprising to me; the lead single from the album ‘Amusement Park’ has been lukewarmly received and the hype surrounding the project is noticeably less than that of his previous albums. I don’t buy the ‘International market’ excuse; he is ’50 Cent’ – meaning he is a big enough artist to drop an album worldwide at anytime.
Will you be picking up ‘Curtis’?
