50 Cent’s much awaited new show Raising Kanan, a part of the POWER spinoff series, debuts on Sunday, July 18.
The G-Unit mogul is confident that the show will be even bigger than the original Power which ended up being one of the highest rated shows on the Starz network. Up next is the Black Mafia Family series on Starz, and along with it will come new music from the rapper in form of a soundtrack.
However, in a new interview with The Independent, 50 was asked about his long delayed Street King Immortal album which he originally started promoting back in 2012. Even until a couple of years ago, there was hope that the album might see the light of day as back in 2018, he had mentioned that it was coming at the end of that year.

But it looks like 50 has finally decided to scrap the album. When the topic came up, Curtis says the original version of that album will not be released but to make up for it, he will drop new music in September. That is most likely in reference to the soundtrack he’s putting together for BMF.
“That original version is not [being released], but I’m releasing new music in September,” he said. He also added that Eminem will not feature on the project as he didn’t get to finish the songs he recorded with him for the SKI album (remember ‘Champions’ ?) “I didn’t finish the tracks with him… I’m not gonna tell who’s on it because I’m the most exciting person [on the album].”

One of the best unreleased songs I have heard in my existence. Just heard it once and I will never be able to forget it.

Let’s hope we get at least a few 50 Cent songs on the upcoming soundtrack. Last week, it was also announced that 50 will also be producing a Hip-Hop competition show Unrapped at ABC.
