Forever King is a twelve-track mixtape by 50 Cent with 90’s R&B samples provided by Mister Cee. The collection is dedicated to the passing of Michael Jackson.[2]

Background[edit]

The collection was initially called Sincerely Southside Part 2, but the death of Michael Jackson stimulated a last minute renaming.[3] Comparing to his last release, War Angel LP, 50 Cent stated:

The cover art for Forever King features 50 Cent's face and his New York Yankees cap digitally imposed on a skull encrusted with diamonds. Another version is more ordinary, featuring a jeweled skull with tilted crown.[5]
