      Now that 50 Cent has gotten rich over and over, it seems his next move is to stop tryin’. Curtis hinted at semi-retirement in a recent MTV interview. The Queens rapper says he’ll give us all a break from candy-coated raps, after the release of his next two albums—Curtis (September 4) and Before I Self Destruct (February 4).  Apparently, 50 has learned a thing or two from mentors Eminem and Dr. Dre.

 

      “Em ain’t put out an album in five years,” said 50. “It builds anticipation because he’s away. And he really doesn’t enjoy what comes with the success. He likes to just be away a lot more, just be shy toward people. And then the less common you appear, the bigger your celebrity. So then he isolates himself, [and] he becomes more popular. People are more excited.”

 

      Before I Self Destruct, which will be released around the 5th the anniversary of Get Rich or Die Tryin’, will be 50’s final studio recording for his contract with Shady/Aftermath. A fifth album in the form of a Greatest Hits CD will conclude his overall contract.   Looks like Fiddy is eager to break free from Aftermath.
