50 Cent not totally sure how this rap-thing works, pushes album release up instead of back

10 11 2009

50 Cent‘s album, Before I Self Destruct, was slated to be released November 23rd. Then why did I click on the iTunes last night and find his album not only featured, but available for purchase? Curtis says that because his album was leaked, and given praise from numerous outlets, he decided to release the digital version of his album on November 9th (yesterday) and the hard copy the following week.


50 dropped his album now because he didn’t want the same thing that happened to Curtis to happen to Before I Self Destruct. Remember, that album dropped on September 11th, the same day as Kanye West‘s 808s & Heartbreak and subsequently got smashed. Kanye crushed 50 like a Coke can. On November 23rd, 50 would have had to compete with Timbaland‘s Shock Value II, Rihanna‘s Rated R. Fishy.

Review will be up by the end of the week, early next week, as well as a review for Wyclef Jean‘s mixtape/album From the Hut, to the Projects, to the Mansion.
