Here comes the shocker. If you were ready for an obvious push back for 50 Cent’s 5th studio album, it’s not happening. The G-Unit general has revealed to AllHipHop that his new, untitled LP will drop on July 3rd, regardless of his label Interscope’s support.

“There’s a lot more business involved [in putting out an album] than the general public is aware of. And that part causes the actual delay with [Interscope]. I’m releasing my album July 3rd, whether is has commercial promotions or not,. “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?” Its starting to feel like that corner that I left, 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.”

Do you agree with his decision?

Earlier today, he released his first Gangsta Grillz mixtape with DJ Drama, The Lost Tape.

UPDATE: He’s dead serious:

    While i think releasing albums without label support , in this day and age is not a very good idea , i agree with 50 doing this. He does dope music that needs to be listened , not shelved for months/years
