As previously reported by Def Sounds, 50 Cent revealed that he will team up with DJ Drama for his first Gangsta Grillz mixtape in the form of The Lost Tape. Now Fif has announced the release date for the forthcoming project.
DJ Drama recently spoke on connecting with 50 for The Lost Tape, as he says the mixtape stemmed from him jokingly asking Fif about doing a tape together.
“We ran into each other at my party out there. I think I said a joke to him real quick about [doing a Gangsta Grillz tape], like, ‘You playing…,’ because a while ago we were supposed to be doing a G-Unit tape that never happened and we’ve been discussing some things. I was with his man Rene from G-Unit, went backstage after the show and mentioned it to him. But after that we never really spoke.”
Drama added, the next morning he woke up to multiple phone calls and text messages:
“People were calling, saying 50 went on Twitter and said he ’bout to drop the tape. So I was like, ‘Cool. It’s real.’ It’s good, because him doing that created a lot of anticipation and excitement and I’m looking forward to it.”
50 Cent took to Twitter and announced the release date for The Lost Tape as May 15th.
