Preparing to release his second studio album, the rap superstar is feature on the cover of the upcoming XXL magazine with a rifle-like crossbow, taking aim at a range of rap rivals in print and with one of his most incendiary songs yet.
On the soon-to-be-released "Piggybank," 50 first lets loose on Fat Joe: "You thought 'Lean Back' was big in the club / My [album] did 11 mil, your [album] was a dud." 50 goes on to lambaste Interscope labelmate Jadakiss, jailed rapper Shyne and longtime foe Ja Rule before settling on newlyweds Nas and Kelis.
"Piggybank" will be included on the new album "St. Valentine's Day Massacre," which hits stores March 8. First single "Disco Inferno" has been burning up the Billboard charts for some time, rising 8-7 on the Hot 100 this week as the greatest sales gainer. The rapper also guests on the Game's "How We Do," which jumps 9-6 on the chart this week.
50 Cent's 2003 Shady/Aftermath debut, "Get Rich or Die Tryin'," was the only title since 'N Sync's 2000 album "No Strings Attached" to start with two straight weeks above 800,000 copies sold in the United States.
