So he's gone and scrapped it...

50 Cent has scrapped plans for his new album because it isn’t good enough.

The controversial rapper had planned to follow up last year’s ‘Get Rich Or Die Tryin” as early as this summer, until he realised that rushing the record would sacrifice quality.

Now he has told MTV that he has gone back to the drawing board.

He said: “I wanted to come out on the Fourth of July, so I went in and made some records. And then I went back to listen to ‘Get Rich Or Die Tryin’. I said, ‘I have to top this in my head. I have to make a lot more records in preparation than I had for ‘Get Rich…’.”

With a provisional release date now set for October, 50 Cent is now back on the track with the follow-up. “There’s pressure on (Dr) Dre also,” he said. “He has to produce a better record for me than ‘In Da Club’. In three days, I could make a record, 12 songs. But I have to make an album that tops what my last album was, so it’ll take a lot longer.”
