50 Cent is pushing his album back further than Ne-Yo’s hairline:
According to a press release, 50 cent decided to push his album back to early 2009. The move comes as 50 Cent was rushing to get his album finished for a December release, however it is not complete. With the deadline to secure advertising and retail placement for the album imminent, he decided to move to a date in early 2009. It will also include a DVD, of a 90-minute film, also titled Before I Self Destruct, a coming of age story about an inner city youth raised by a hardworking single mother. When his dream of becoming a basketball player fails to materialize, he finds himself employed in a supermarket. After his mother is tragically gunned down, Clarence (played by 50) is consumed by revenge and takes up a life of crime in order to support his younger brother.“Times are hard,” stated 50 Cent. “Everyone is trying to make the most of what they have. I want to give my fans something extra for their hard earned dollars. They’ll get a free bonus when they pick up the album.”
Just like TI, Luda, and many others in the rap game lately, it seems like Curtis is trying to mature. We appreciate 50’s courtesy, but we still aren’t buying his album; recession or not.
