50 Cent has unveiled his new single, 'New Day' – scroll down to listen.

The track, which is produced by Dr Dre and mixed by Eminem, also features Alicia Keys. It is set to appear on the rapper's fifth studio album, 'Street King Immortal', which will finally be released on November 13, Billboard reports. It will follow the release of a free digital album '5 (Murder By Numbers)' earlier this month.

50 cent is also reportedly poised to launch a new career as a boxing promoter. Earlier this month (July 16), the New York City Athletic Commission awarded a licence to promote fights to the rapper's company, TMT Promotions. The acronym TMT apparently stands for "The Money Team", a nickname used by the entourage of world champion boxer Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr.

According to Forbes, Mayweather Jr. is the highest-paid sports star in the world, after he earned an estimated $85 million (£54 million) in 12 months. He is currently serving an 87-day prison sentence in Las Vegas for domestic abuse, but has previously been promoted on a fight-by-fight basis by Oscar De La Hoya's Golden Boy Promotions.

Speaking to sports website ESPN, Mayweather Jr's business associate Leonard Ellerbe refused to confirm that the rapper has signed to promote the boxer. However, he admitted that the pair have formed some kind of business partnership, saying: "I think that Floyd and 50 coming together is great for boxing. You have two smart guys and when great minds work together, you can have nothing but great results."
