Despite cancelling a European promotional trip after being trounced by Kanye West in the chart battle, 50 Cent has sent out a defiant message that he’s not retiring and announced a fresh batch of tour dates, according to published reports.

The heavyweight rapper will play eight arena dates across the UK, kicking off at the Aberdeen Arena on November 7, according to Gigwise. Tickets go on sale from tomorrow morning (September 22) at 10am – as always, you can get them through Gigwise.

Since his album ‘Curtis’ was beaten to the top spot in both the U.S. and the U.K. by West’s ‘Graduation’, Fiddy has been very gracious in defeat. On Wednesday he said he felt honoured to have been in the chart battle and that it had done good for hip-hop.

50 Cent in the U.K. in November:
Aberdeen Arena – 7th
Glasgow SECC – 8th
Birmingham NEC – 9th
London O2 Arena – 10th
Bournemouth BIC – 11th
Cardiff CIA – 12th
Manchester MEN – 14th
Nottingham Arena – 16th
