Hot Music Video – They Burn Me, Off and On & Put Your Hands Up – 50 Cent

Someone’s been getting it in over the holidays! 50 Cent has been on a music video production spree and has recently released several music videos over the last couple weeks. You can watch the following official music videos below of “They Burn Me”, “Off and On” and “Put Your Hands Up” which are definitely interesting watch and graphic I must say. We have all been waiting on the release of his fifth studio album Before I Self Destruct II and have witnessed much drama surrounding the album itself. The LP is set to be released sometime in early 2012, through Shady Records, Aftermath Entertainment and Interscope Records. The album will reportedly be 50 Cent’s final album released through Interscope, as part of the contract he signed after joining the label in 2002 which requires him to release at least five albums with the label. The album will feature a multitude of vocalists, including Shady Records founder Eminem, Lloyd Banks, Kidd Kidd and Busta Rhymes, among others. Originally, 50 Cent’s fifth studio album was set to be Black Magic, an album influenced by several genres including rock and dance music. However, its release was postponed as 50 Cent began to write material based on a different concept, rather than the one influencing Black Magic. As a result, recording sessions for a brand new album began from scratch, and the new material is reportedly of a traditional hip hop nature, involving producers such as Cardiak, Bangladesh, The Cataracs, Hit-Boy, Jim Jonsin, Swizz Beatz, Jake One and Just Blaze among others. Check out the videos below after the jump and let me know what you think…

Watch 50 Cent perform his new song, “They Burn Me” off of his highly anticipated and popular “Big 10″ mixtape. Initially reported to be released during the summer of 2011, the album’s original release date has since been been revised. Largely due to disagreements between 50 Cent and Interscope over the release and promotion of the album Before I Self Destruct II, which led to the album’s brief cancellation. However, 50 Cent later confirmed that the album will be sometime released in early 2012. In November 2009, 50 Cent released his fourth studio album, titled Before I Self Destruct. The album did not match the previous commercial success of his first three studio albums, only selling 160,000 copies in its first week of commercial sales. To help promote the album, 50 Cent went on The Invitation Tour; while on the European leg of he tour, he visited nightclubs and was impressed with the vastly changing styles of music played. Because of this, and while still on tour, 50 Cent began to write and record material for an album called Black Magic.

The new album’s music would be influenced by number of genres, including dance, rock and pop music; it would have a “higher tempo” than his previous work, although he claimed that the predominant genre of the music would still be rap. However, 50 Cent later revealed to the Brasilian edition of music magazine Rolling Stone that he was unsure whether to continue with the recording of the album, which he had begun while in the European venues of the tour, as he had begun to write material that he claimed “didn’t quite fit the concept” of the album. He later revealed the release of Black Magic had been postponed indefinitely, although he stated the album may be released in the future. The new album Before I Self Destruct II will be more hip hop influenced, which was inspired by a number of popular music genres.

Watch 50 Cent perform his other new song, “Off and On” also off of his highly anticipated and popular Big 10 mixtape. 50 Cent then speaks on Black Magic’s influences of dance music: “I got a chance to hear the music that was playing out there prior to me coming there. It’s almost like when I come into the territory they change the music to 50 Cent music, so I’m saying, “What were you playing before I got here?” And this music was all fast, the tempo and production, it was just different.” While recording the album, 50 Cent listened to a mix of music performed by his favourite artists, including rappers Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G.. In an interview with the Detroit Free Press, 50 Cent explained these actions, stating, “I listen to those records to create expectations… It creates a level to me, within myself, of how good the record has to be before I’m ready to launch it.” In the same interview, he described the album as a “whole new sound” for him and felt that it was “more soulful” and “more mature” than his previous work. Surf Club producers Hit-Boy and Chase N. Cashe went on to talk positively about the album’s material and its musical variation: “He’s [50 Cent] taking it back to the old 50. And he had some new records that were some different-sounding stuff too. I’m excited to see how people react to it, and hopefully we end up with some stuff on the album. I gave him some stuff he really loved. It’s really a blend of the old 50 mixing with the new stuff that he’s doing. It’s crazy.”

Watch 50 Cent perform his another new song, “Put Your Hands Up” also from his popular Big 10 mixtape. On December 31, Fifty tweeted the following message, “My next album is great its shame the hardest people to work with were suppose to be on the same team with me. I’m not doing any press for this album. I worked really hard on it my music speaks for it self. I may put out another mix tape for fun. Music was so much fun for me now the people and politics involved disgust me.” In more recent tweets from his twitter account 50 Cent revealed more information in regards to his current music career, “I have lost all the faith in the team I’m on. I having nothing left to say I will not be promoting my music. I’m going to deliver this album then. I have a film I wrote to focus on I’m not upset I’m just convinced this is not how I want to remembered. Ill be honest I don’t think I’m gonna live much longer. That’s why I started my street king movement. I want to mean more in other peoples lives. I mixed the big 10 because everything I do has to be the best I can make it cause other artist will create after hearing the ideas.” I am shocked at 50’s tone. He sounds really down and out right now. I have honestly never seen him tweet some real feelings like this except for today. He has lots of stuff going on in his life I can see…
