Artwork Revealed For 50 Cent’s Single “My Life” Featuring Eminem

50 Cent drops the artwork for the lead single off his forthcoming album which features Eminem and singer Adam Levine.

Two legends in the game, 50 Cent and Eminem, had fans slightly disappointed when a track on Fif’s Murder By Numbers mixtape which “featured” Marshall only had him briefly speaking in the intro.  After hinting to fans that the first single from his upcoming album would be a collabo with Slim Shady, 50 releases the artwork for the single “My Life”.

Earlier it was leaked that Eminem and 50 Cent were filming a video in Detroit, and it looks like it was for this, the lead single off Street King Immortal, which also features vocals from Maroon 5 singer, Adam Levine.

Definitely looking to push this track to the masses, after it becomes available on iTunes on November 27th, the song will then appear on the reality show The Voice.

After being pushed back, SKI is scheduled for a release in early 2013.  Check out the single artwork below

Yelawolf Talks On “Radioactive” Vs. Sophomore Album “Love Story,” New Mixtape In February | HotNewHipHop

Yelawolf talks on the short-comings of his debut album, “Radioactive,” and how “Love Story” will be an improvement. He also reveals when he plans to release his next mixtape.

Yelawolf’s debut album Radioactive, was well-received by some, and criticized by others, something Yelawolf acknowledges in a recent interview.

The rapper, who is signed to Eminem, says that some of the records on Radioactive were trial-and-error type tracks. He says that Em and him were cut short creatively on his first LP, but that won’t be the case for his sophomore effort, Love Story.

“The album [Love Story], following Radioactive, is a totally different approach, artistically. Marshall and I were cut short, creatively, in a lot of ways. We never really got a chance to just be left alone in a sense.”

Yelawolf explains how the label intervened on his debut album, and he allowed it, but after seeing it didn’t work out like he wanted, he says it won’t ever happen again. “I said prior, I’ll allow this to happen, but if it doesn’t work, don’t ever ask me to do this again, it’s not gunna happen. So I did, and like I predicated, there were records that didn’t work, there were records that didn’t translate, ’cause my fans weren’t ready to hear it.”

For Love Story, Yela says he plans to record it entirely in Nashville and then he’ll head to Detroit to put the LP together with Eminem alone, and no label figures. “I’m gunna go to Detroit, god willing, sit down with Marshall with my album, and put it together, just him and I.”

The Slumerican added, “I definitely learned a lot with that album, as far as the industry works.”

As a plus, Yelawolf revealed in the last few minutes of his interview that his next mixtape would likely be dropping in February. “Trunk Musik Returns, February 2013 hopefully.”
