50 Cent took to Instagram to announce The Kanan Tape.
He posted a series of a video and two images to make the announcement.
“Cold in my eyes, ashy knuckles…I hustle so hard, I can’t see me legs,” 50 Cent says in a video where he wakes up to his legs covered in money.
In the third post, he shows an image of himself counting money that spells out “Broke,” seemingly alluding to his filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in July.
“Man this lunch money,” he writes in the caption. “I gotta go to work I’m still up, no Sleep at all. NEW MUSIC this week,Off The KANAN tape.”
Kanan is the name of 50 Cent’s character in the STARZ television show Power, which he also executive produces.
The Rap mogul hinted at a new mixtape during a Hang With session in August.
“Ima take it back. I gotta go back to original style,” he said at the time.
He is also working on the Street King Immortal album.
