50 Cent has vowed never to release the dance-inspired material he recorded for his doomed album Black Magic.
The In Da Club hitmaker took inspiration from the European nightclub scene for the album, which he planned to put out in 2010, but he ultimately shelved the tracks as he felt his new sound didn't fit his grittier hip-hop image.
He tells The Hollywood Reporter, "It doesn't make sense (to change direction) - and that's why you're never going to hear that album. I have things that I really appreciate that belong in my iPod - my iPod only - and leave it there."
However, 50 Cent admits it is less daunting to announce his wild ideas than to actually go through with them and face fans' reactions.
He adds, "I have ideas and I'll be vocal, because I'm in a position where I'm consistently put in platforms and positions where the public will have access to my idea. So I say it, and I don't care. But to actually do it is a different thing, when you gauge at how people respond to you doing things that they didn't actually want."
