“Everything on it is new. It’s like an album,” 50 Cent told Vibe. “I got the chance to do the talking that I do on mixtapes.” Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson hinted that “The Big 10” is to hold fans over until the release of his upcoming fifth studio album.
There remains no planned release date for his proper follow-up to 2009’s “Before I Self Destruct” after the countless delays alongside apparent friction with his label, Interscope Records.
Aside from cohorts like Kidd Kidd and Tony Yayo, the mixtape features female rapper, Precious Paris, whom 50 Cent recently welcomed to the G-Unit family. “It’s heat, you understand, heat,” 50 said on his YouTube page. “Let’s just say I hit the restart button; now you’ll see what happens when I focus on music and put all my energy into it.”
Paris, a South Jamaica, Queens native, previously appeared on “Kitty Kat” off his 2008’s G-Unit album “T.O.S.” In 2010, she released the mixtape, “Bad By Myself,” presented by Milk it Entertainment and Mixtape Wall.
