The rapper took to his Twitter on Tuesday (March 20) to reveal that he talked with Eminem at the South by Southwest music conference about his album, and planned to contact Dr Dre.
"I kicked it with EM after the show i told him how I feel about my new album," 50 Cent posted. "I'm gonna get on the phone with DRE today about it."
He then announced: "My album is coming out July 2. I got some heat trust me I'm ready."
"My birthdays july 6 so that's a cool date for ME. Its gonna be july2 album, july4 independence day, then july6 my birthday," 50 Cent added.
Back in January, 50 Cent said that he didn't care if his album was released or not, expressing his disappointment with his label Interscope.
In addition to the new album, 50 Cent signed a deal with Avery Books last December to publish a fitness and cooking guide next year.
