Music Notes: 50 Cent album to drop in September, Alex James to make royal cheese

- 50 Cent's next album, Before I Self Destruct, is set to come out Sept. 29 after a two-year delay. [SPIN]

- Blur's Alex James will be making cheese... for Prince Charles. James took up farming — with a special focus on cheese — during the years that Blur went on hiatus. He will now supply cheese by royal appointment after striking a deal with the prince. The cheese is to be sold through the Dutchy of Cornwall's estate. [NME]

- Uh, apparently Thom Yorke and Kings of Leon are in talks to record new music for New Moon, the sequel to Twilight. [SPIN]

- Check out a free download of Monsters of Folk's (featuring Conor Oberst, Jim James and M. Ward) "Say Please" here. The track will appear on the group's self-titled debut, which is due out on Sept. 22. [Pitchfork]
