50 Cent consigned his 'Black Magic' to "the vault" as he says he only made it "recreationally".

The rapper is currently in the studio working on the follow up to his 2009 album 'Before I Self Destruct', but while he originally announced this would be a rock and dance music influenced record called 'Black Magic', he has since started on a different concept.

He told Redbulletin magazine: "I moved 'Black Magic', because it's a total artist's album. It was something that I just wanted to do, so I went in and recreationally made a full-bodied piece of work.

"I gave myself a new concept, so now it's in the vault."

Some aspects of the album may, however, appear on the 'Baby By Me' hitmaker's next disc, as he added: "But you can build another album out of that material that you put to the side."

50 - real name Curtis Jackson - also said the way he approaches making music has changed dramatically since he first rose to fame in 2002, because he is now aiming for his worldwide audience, rather than his old neighbourhood of Queens in New York.

He added: "It's not a long drawn-out process for me to create it, but it's a long drawn-out process deciding what to offer the world. When I was making music initially, it was just for a 10 block radius, now it's for the world."
