50 Cent Considers Retirement
50 CENT is set to follow rap rival THE GAME into retirement, insisting his next studio album could be his last.
The In Da Club hitmaker has a fourth album and a hits compilation left on his label contract and he's beginning to consider stepping back from the business after that.
He says, "It (next album) could very well be my last studio album if it doesn't make sense for me to continue and actually do it."
But the one thing that might prompt 50 to forge on is the fact all his rap peers are getting old and comfortable.
He tells King magazine, "I believe that I will have a stronger position as we move forward. What I have on my side is age. In the next five years, they'll (top rappers) be 45 and 44 years old and I'll just be close to where they are now."
And he doesn't expect Jay-Z to be the king of rap for much longer: "He's married, he's getting ready to be 40. He's in a different place, he might not even want to run around, and even touring might be out of the question."
