50 Cent Exploring the Dance Genre
50 Cent, who previously claimed that hip hop is “dwindling away,” has already started to record a dance album inspired by club music he’s heard while touring Europe.
“I went to a nightclub after party. It was different music after a while. The music they were playing before they were playing the music I created was more up-tempo, more dance,” he explained. “I wanted to make a song like that, so I went into the studio. Because I’m traveling with my live band, I took the band with me and we sequenced it and recorded the actual record while we was out there.”
The “Baby By Me” rapper said he hopes the new record - working title Black Magic - will show his full diversity as an artist to people.
“I won’t allow myself to be placed in a box where I can only do one style, or do one kind of music,” he added. “They should expect the unexpected on this one. If they can understand how I enjoy different genres of music and different styles, for the people who have various tastes in music, they’ll really like it.”
