He tweeted: "Ok I tried to be cool with my record company . I went to the meeting talk to everyone and s**t feels like there moving in slow motion.

"I worked really hard on this album I'm not gonna let it come out like some bulls**t. There use to me just putting it out.

"My whole career iv been doing s**t and they have been playing catch up this is the last f**king album THEY BETTER WAKE UP AND WORK."

50 - real name Curtis Jackson – further warned fans if he can't reach a compromise with the label soon, the album, his first since 2009's 'Before I Self Destruct' - could be delayed until next year.

He tweeted: "I'm sorry to announce I will not be releasing a new album this year if we don't get on the same page.
