While 50 Cent's days of dodging (and, famously, failing to dodge) slugs are—knock on wood—behind him, the daily grind that he's traded them in for comes with its own formidable set of stresses. On My Life, the official lead single off Curtis' fifth studio album, he teams up with a few fellow industry heavyweights to give listeners an inkling of the challenges that await him each time he gets up in the morning. S1, Yeezy's partner on MBDTF lead single Power, puts his production stamp on the record, crafting a cinematic, driving backdrop to back Fitty's mic therapy session. Mentor Eminem lends his off-the-wall flows to the record's middle portion, and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine ties it all together with a memorable hook. If you enjoyed this glimpse into 50 Cent's quotidian hustle, then stay tuned; Street King Immortal still lacks a drop date, but we'll keep you supplied with the latest news and tunes. In the meantime, you can look forward to seeing My Life performed on tonight's episode of The Voice, in anticipation of its release to iTunes at midnight.
