50's New Album Pushed back to SEPTEMBER
« on: May 25, 2007, 09:45:03 AM »
50 Cent’s New Album, Curtis, Moves From June 26th To New Release Date September 4th

Santa Monica, CA – May 24, 2007 – 50 Cent’s new album Curtis, which was previously scheduled to be released on June 26th, will now be released on September 4, 2007. With the album near completion and unable to make the original June date, a simultaneous worldwide release necessitated a push until September.

“I’m an international artist. My fans worldwide deserve to receive my album at the same time as my fans here in the US. Taking that into consideration moving the album to September was a necessary course of action,” states 50 Cent.

50 Cent is by no means taking the summer off. His first major performance will be June 26th on the BET Awards. For the first time ever, BET will let the fans decide which song 50 Cent will perform on the show. Text BANK to 23898 to vote for "Straight to the Bank" or text PARK to 23898 to vote for "Amusement Park". Tune into the show to see the winning performance.

With both of his singles falling off the top 100 is this a smart thing to do? Anybody else think this could be a negotiating tactic by Iovine after that Warner Bros info came out?

this is bullshit, i thought end of june was perfect for him to drop, and gives 5 months to drop another Aftermath album eg Statlanta.. but if he's pushed back to september now, then that most likely means Stat will come early 2008, and then Detox will be pushed even further back AGAIN, and what about Raekwons album?! ..Aftermath sucks

Lol at the reason.. you tell me the weren't able to anticipate the number of CDs they have to press for a worlwide release til NOW... I don't buy it, that's a BS reason.. anyways Interscope/Aftermath are a joke... Dre should bring his label onto another umbrella.. but after all he prefers to collect dollars and be Iovine bitch by not using his power  :-X... Watch out for Bishop in 2009,  :-X

XXLMag.com has confirmed that the release date for 50 Cent’s new LP, Curtis, has been pushed back to September 4. The highly anticipated album, 50’s third, was previously set for a June 26 release.     

“Yes it’s true my album has been pushed back because it wasn’t delivered to the plant in order to be distributed and delivered world wide so it has to be pushed back, 50 told XXLMag.com. “June 26th was the last date I could put it out internationally until September. I am disappointed in Interscope for being reactive instead of proactive.

In related news Glaceau, the makers of Vitamin Water, has been purchased by the Coca-Cola Corporation for $4.1 billion. One of the more popular flavors of the drink is the 50 Cent branded grape flavored Formula 50. “Today is 5/25 and it’s a beautiful day and I’m displaying my beautiful smile in beautiful way, It’s beautiful to be alive on 5/25, 50 said of the sale. “We sold Vitamin Water for $4.1 billion dollars to Coco-Cola! Ha-ha-ha!”

50 Cent IS Laughing Straight To The Bank!

Word is the Warner Bros./Asylum is really gunning for 50 now (no pun intended). 50's contract is almost up at Interscope and word is Kevin Liles has thrown a cool $95 mill/4 CD contract at him. There is no word on what 50 had to say about it but Fif only has 2 more cd's on his Interscope contract. With "Before I Self Destruct" already halfway done and his "Greatest Hits" album ready to drop in 08', things will get pretty interesting. 50 owns most of G-Unit Records,books, & clothing. Where ever this man goes, the execs will be screamin' "balllinnnn", especially at Warner since that's Jim Jones' label home.

Sure it's in the rumors section but it didn't get there by accident.

Why are all you people blaming Aftermath? Interscope decides the release dates... not Aftermath.

1) Dre seems comfortable with the pushbacks.. never did anything to change this situation

2) Blame Dre to stay on Interscope... Dre, Em and 50 are so rich.. why don't they care about making the music they want and release the cds when they are finished, not years after.. actually at least 50 said a few times Interscope fucked it up

WTF, now thats some bullshit. 50 had everything planned, the bet performance on the release date, the videos, the apperances. God damn, he must be pissed.

Im 100% he'll leave Interscope now. But being pushed back pretty much rules out the BISD album in Feb 04. Maybe hell make it a double album in September.

Yeah I agree with you there... it just seemed Aftermath was being blamed for release dates, but yeah I wish they'd fuckin' leave Interscope already (unless there's some contract obligations we don't know about).

Exactly, he just put out 2 new videos. And thats not just a push back, its like 4 months. I wouldn't be surprised if 50 flops.

^^^^^yeah, without mentionning the release of 2 videos which are now useless  :-X.. people working at Interscope look so amateurish , they keep gettin worst and worst ... yeah he should release a double in September then release a greatest hits beginning of 08 and left... let Dre working on Detox(scheduled for after Global Warnin destroyed the earth) and schedule Bishop in 2011, Raekwon (hmm never) , Stat Quo ( who gives a fuck)

And thats such a bs exuse about that international release date. WTF is that. I highly doubt they did it (becuase what someone said before of the singles) because Straight To The Bank had 50s highest debut on the Billboard top 100 (nb. 32) and it was the most d/l song from 50 Cent on Itunes. So, it must be something with Interscope.

He is gonna flop big time now (by his standards). Like I said he had everything planned, just read about that Vitamin water deal and commercia, new Vibe coverl.... Unless he reinvents himself completley and starts griding from scratch yet again. Lets not forget Kanye is also set to drop in September. Plus Dre, Bishop, everybody get pushed back now.

The only posistive thing about this is Amusement Park not making the cut (most likely).

Fuck Interscope. Fuck 50.

50 Cent's Curtis Release Pushed To September
Last-minute additions, international release cause delay.

By Shaheem Reid and Jayson Rodriguez, with additional reporting by Tim Kash

It looks like the unstoppable force that is 50 Cent has to slow down just a little: The release of his highly anticipated third album, Curtis, is being pushed back.

Unable to make its original June 26 date (see "50 Cent Talks Timberlake Collabo, Star-Studded New LP Curtis"), last-minute additions and the album's simultaneous worldwide release required a delay until September 4, Interscope Records announced Friday (May 25).

"I'm an international artist," Fif said in a brief statement. "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."

According to information in the release, the G-Unit leader has additions to the project that came into consideration when making the decision to push the album back. Because of those potential tracks, 50 and company came to the conclusion that they wouldn't be able to make the original release date.

Just this past Monday, 50 Cent did a full blitz of the MTV offices in New York's Times Square, visiting several departments and even playing his album — which was just mixed and mastered the night before, his management said — for some of the staff (see "50 Cent Says 'Delusional' Cam'ron Is Hurting Diplomats Camp"). He was counting down the days until June 26, very eager for the world to hear the follow up to his last album, The Massacre.

"I'm excited," he told MTV News later that day at the Night Hotel in Times Square. He was sitting on the penthouse rooftop overlooking the city. "I feel like I'll impact on them heavy on this album. The Massacre kinda gave me my spot. This project right here, again I find myself trying to maintain a position that I have in entertainment. I'm in a more creative space and I'm able to give up more content, more lyrics that would make me vulnerable on some level. But I feel this project is going to impact the most because of that."

Two Curtis videos — "Amusement Park" and "Straight to the Bank" — are in rotation on traditional outlets and another straight-to-YouTube clip, "Fully Loaded Clip," has been making the rounds too. Yet another video, for a track called "Follow My Lead" with Robin Thicke, was shot recently in L.A. But there is no definitive word from Interscope if that will be the next look from the album or if he would go with another single. Curtis also features contributions from Dr. Dre, Justin Timberlake, Timbaland, Akon and Mary J. Blige


Fuck that shit too, you dont push an album for that for 2 months, you push it back for 2 weeks.

50 would kill T.I. in sales. Even if this was so, why would he push his date back so far?

i dunno, lol just messing around.

To easily say 50 would kill T.I. in sales isn't exactly fair. I'm just saying, before last year, i bet pretty much everyone would say that Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, Game, Nas, Ludacris would also *kill* T.I. in sales, and T.I. beat ALL of them out

But this is 50 Cent we are talking about. He can make a record composed soley of insturmentals, and he'd probably still go platinum.

Neither Ludacris, Game, Nas, Jay-Z, or Snoop have ever sold over 5 million records in the US (further more doing it twice).
