London: Hip-hop superstar 50 Cent is set to make his 37th birthday extra special for fans by giving away his new album for free.

The 36-year-old `In Da Club` hitmaker, whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III, will make the release available for download online, completely free of charge, reported Contactmusic.

In a series of Twitter posts, he writes, "You can`t buy album 5 it`s Free. Street king immortal will be for sale... The full CD will be out on my birthday."

The singer`s follow-up to 2009`s `Before I Self Destruct` has been delayed since last year, when he entered into a war of words with Interscope Records bosses for moving in slow motion.

He recently said that his next project would be called 5 (Murder by Numbers), but it won`t be his official Interscope disc.

The album, titled Street King Immortal, will hit music retailers in November.
