50 Cent released his mixtape, The Lost Tape, May 22.

Following its release he spoke to AllHipHop telling them that his fifth album is dropping July 3 with or without the backing of Interscope.

“There’s a lot more business involved than the general public is aware of. And that part causes the actual delay. I’m releasing my album July 3, whether is has commercial promotions or not,” 50 Cent said. “My birthday is July 6 and I planned for it. And I’m doing everything that I planned to do regardless if its huge airplay or not. I could care less, I’m putting the record out.”

“I don’t need a record to sell. How much money you think I’ma make off record sales? You think I’ma sell 13 million records? It’s starting to feel like that corner that I left,” 50 Cent explained. “I ain’t going to keep sitting on the records. Even if everything ain’t in order, album five will be out July 3 and they can wait another two years for me to give them another one.”

All of 50 Cent’s albums have been released via Interscope, since his debut, Get Rich Or Die Tryin’. His fifth LP is still untitled, but according to 50 Cent, all the tracks are done and ready to be released to the public.
