50 Cent’s Upcoming Album: Street King Immortal
Coming back to the present day, 50 Cent’s upcoming album in 2017 is titled Street King Immortal. The infamous album was due for release back in 2012 but kept getting rescheduled, due to varying reasons. It has been over five years since this album has been in the making.
