While “New Day” from Fif’s much awaited album “Street King Immortal” is getting good air time and is also set to play when fif hosts the pre-game show on Fox this Sunday; the album containing this number will no longer release on November 13th; its release being delayed because of some problems between the G-Unit headman and Interscope Records.
There is a history to this feud between the two parties; earlier too record releases by the artist have been delayed for one reason or the other. And this can be a setback to someone who operates on a two-year cycle as 50 Cent does.
This is fif’s take on the issue – “Yeah, Street King Immortal. The actual album, it was scheduled to release November 13th, but we had to move the date,” Fif said in an interview from Paris, France. “For this album, it’s already been a year late. It’s usually two years in my cycle that I go because I release the record and then I spend a whole year after touring and then I go again. So on this actual cycle it was actually a lot longer because it’s the final album requirement for Interscope and we went through an audit type of situation until we got it all cleared up and now everybody’s ready to work, so it’s ready to come out. I finished it. I’m comfortable with the actual record, I feel it’s arguable as good if not better than what I did in the beginning with Get Rich and The Massacre. But you know, I’ve learned to adjust pretty well to people judging me as an artist and people look at the material and try to be critics more than fans. But I’m my biggest critic.”
