Rapper 50 Cent recently revealed that his highly anticipated album Before I Self Destruct has officially been pushed back again, this time until November.
50 Cent made the announcement during an interview backstage at the Coke Live Festival, in Cracow, Poland last night (August 22).
The last confirmed release date for the album had been September 29 and prior to that, September 11.
50, who has recorded and the re-recorded BISD, also revealed that a companion movie will come with the rappers fourth major studio album.
I was limited [with] time on my other projects, And this one, just because the system was in a state of confusion with things changing – the music business itself changed, 50 Cent said. And it was definitely a time where I felt like I was ready and it wasnt a possibility for me to release the record at that point. And then the Eminem train came running down the track and I had to get out the way to let Eminems record [Relapse] go out. Because he had been off for two years, it made good sense for to let him go out first.
The film version of BISD marks the rappers directorial debut and is based off of the songs contained on the album.
It will be within the album packaging, so when you buy the record you will get the film that I wrote, 50 Cent revealed.
50 is also working on a new untitled album that will be a radical departure from his previous releases.
[Im] working on a new project, is so far what theyve heard from me in the past. Its different things we are doing that theyll be surprised to hear. What creatively, I came up with.”
According to 50 Cent, Before I Self Destruct will land in stores the first week of November, which would make the release date Tuesday, November 3.
The album features production by Dr. Dre, Timbaland, Polow Da Don, Ty Fyffe and others.
