(AllHipHop News) 50 Cent originally planned to drop two albums this year. After releasing his comeback indie LP Animal Ambition in June, the G-Unit leader had scheduled to follow that with his long-awaited Street King Immortal project.

SKI has effectively been pushed until next year, and 50 explained to Rolling Stone why he made that decision. According to Fif, the G-Unit reunion is taking precedence over his own solo career at the moment.
“I didn’t want to lose the momentum connected with everyone being back together,” said 50.
The Unit’s next move is the release of The Beast Is G-Unit EP. While 50, Young Buck, Tony Yayo, Lloyd Banks, and newest member Kidd Kidd are currently working as a team, the boss admits he made mistakes the first go round. Fiddy acknowledges if he could do it all over again he would not have presented G-Unit with him at the center, so the other emcees could build their own individual brands outside of the crew.
“When you look at it, they’ve sold millions of records on their own. If they weren’t so strongly associated [with G-Unit], they’d probably have crews under them,” 50 stated. “They didn’t really have an interest in doing that because they [already] had a strong association and had so much fun in the position they were in at that point.”
