Lil Wayne Movie And 50 Cent Album Pushed Back To Next Year

It’s hard out here for a rapper. First Lil Wayne’s Halo Champagne was put on indefinite hold, and now the rapper will have to wait until next year to make his big screen debut. Hurricane Season, Weezy’s first feature film, has reportedly been pushed back to March 2009.

The flick was initially scheduled to open around the holidays, but was postponed due to a saturated holiday movie field.

“The market is really crowded for the Christmas films and they were looking for a strategic month to release it in,” a source close to the movie told XXL under the condition of anonymity. “It recently tested very good in the 90’s with audiences, so I think it will do pretty well in the theater.”

Hurricane Season also stars Bow Wow, Oscar winner Forest Whitaker, Isaiah Washington and Taraji P. Henson and follows a post-Hurricane Katrina high school basketball team from New Orleans as they overcome hardships on their way to a state championship.

Meanwhile, 50 Cent has also postponed his album. First slated for a December release date, Before I Self Destruct, has now been pushed back to 2009. Fif plans on rewarding his patient fans by adding two DVDs to the album’s deluxe edition: Two Turntables and a Microphone: The Life and Death of Jam Master Jay Documentary and the Before I Self Destruct movie.

“Times are hard,” 50 said in a statement. “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 the pick up the album.” –Bruce Moses
