50 Cent Destroys Release Date Rumors, Album Dropping Sept. 29

It’s official. 50 Cent’s Before I Self Destruct will not be coming out on the same day as Jay-Z’s Blueprint 3.

Despite rumors that have been floating around all week that both discs would be hitting shelves on September 11, Fif told mtv.com that the disc is coming about two weeks after Hov.

And the G-Unit General said his long-delayed project is finally finished. “My album — it’s perfect, I feel,” he said. “I’m ready. I’m ready to put this album out. I really don’t need adjustments. I need a few songs to be finished, mixed. Dre, he drags his feet. He’s slow, but it’s because he’s so creative. He’s gonna make sure it’s perfect. I’m never mad at it. I understand that process from him. But for me, I kinda go on my gut.”

“Ain’t nobody pick 50 Cent records,” he continued. “’Wanksta’ went on its own. They caught up to my records. The only record they launched was ‘In Da Club.’ When we was all on deck and they launched it. Even going back to the last record —’I Get Money’ was going at a great pace, then ‘Ayo Technology’ fell on top of it. I had all of the records that sold the Curtis record laying there the whole time. I was just like, ‘I can’t put this out until after I’ve done this.’ My core, if they can’t expect aggressive content or that content that feels like what’s going on for them at the moment from me, then who can they get it from?”

50 recently released his War Angel LP for free on his website, thisis50.com, as well as Forever King, a mixtape in the vein of last year’s Sincerely Yours, Southside. –Max G

    Why did XXL choose to use the terminology “destroyed”. 50 may dispelled the rumors, but destroyed? What does that even mean?

    Interscope dick all down XXL throat. Shame!!!!

  • Mutada al sader the king

  • over

    face it 50 cent your buzz and run is over

  • CLJ

    if 50 and Jay-Z was gonna drop on the same day it was not gonna happen, becaues the 11th is on a Friday…….

    • 2

      yeah The Massecre dropped on a friday dumbass…. so did the eminem show…

  • Jeff

    This is going to b a hot albumn! 50 is tearing up the mixtape right now!

  • BD

    BISD will be heat…no more of the bubble gum cock in the ass drake lil wayne pussy midget bitch shit…im ready for that gggg shit nigga

  • CLJ

    we don’t even know what day Jay-Z is droping, becaues the 11th is on a Friday…… so the 50 and Jay-Z showdown was not gonna happen anyway……..

  • E-Hustle

    @CLJ,
    Jay already officially annouced BP3 for 9/11, anniversary of the original BP. Where the fuck you been homie?

    If 50 got Dre executive producing with Eminem and they control most of the beats I think it will be good.
    We will see. this is make or break for 50′s musical career.

    Though I would have loved to see 50 & Jay same week. Wayne homo ass should push his shit back for the 43rd time to 50′s date and make it interesting.

  • epinz

    if this shit sounds anything like war angel and forever king, than the cds gunna b str8! respect it, or check it is so fuckin hard! every song better b in that calibur!!!!

  • L.a Vet

    anybody notice how Mutada the queen always has some negative shit to say….

  • harmen

    you can expect this to be a hot album– it won’t be anything like curtis cuz 50 obviously knows that people didn’t like it, i think he’s gonna be back on top this go around– infact i hope it’s good man i like 50, even my 40 year old uncle he took my ipod to england he had listened to all 5000 songs and even he said 50 makes the best SONGS, the stuff he talks about is awesome, he may not have that good of rhyming but he’s got the best beats and he;s very consistent which i agree with

  • Oaklands Own

    Im expecting this to be tight….

    50′s last two mix tapes go hard! Especially War Angel! Forever King has some nice cuts on it (“Michael jacksons Freestyle” has one of the realest 50 verses since “hate it or love it”).

    50 is gonna redeem hisself with this one

  • http://myspace.com/federalranga Federal Ranga

    Guess its not going to be 4th qt. I could care less when it comes it comes out long as 50 brings it. I’m looking forward to this… Man, September will be here sooner than ya think now…

    On another note, 9/11 happens to be my birthday and I can assure everybody here that the quickest way to an asswhuppin on my birthday is to give me the BP3 for a gift… Just don’t do it. Commission!

  • macdatruest

    Let me do a Fiddy style drop about taking a shit…

    “I took a shit today.Law 5. I released it around noon, when Fat Joe shits. But mine was perfect. I mean Im Fiddy Cent, my name is synonymous with quality groundbreaking pop music. I didnt just shit, I deficated. See those other guys, they just boo boo. Law 33.I am Boo Boo they want to be like me, but nobody says anything about it when other rappers shit do they?.

    The reason it took so long was because Dre’s lazy. He didnt want to spare a few wipes but it’s okay because this is Doctor Dre’s asswipes.Law 26. So they’re absolutely perfect too, like me and my shit turds and oh, my music too. I make music too, and its utterly perfect. There’s no way I can lose, or lose the respect of my peers. Law 13. If my album doesnt sale, it’s Hip Hop’s problem not mine.

    I only make groundbreaking ultra perfect high quality gangster pop at a pace the world has never seen before in all their lives. Did you see my shit? Em dropped a shit turd in the bowl while I was still going boo boo. We’re gonna feature it in both our toilets. Ems got the crazy shit, I got the tough shit.Law 19. I predict I will rule the world by 2011, and I think I should diss Drake for being talented, but failing to achieve perfection like me and Yayo.

  • Afi K. James

    Who cares, 5-0 is the new MC Hammer in my opinion, one of the worst rappers to ever sign to a record label and BISD will continue to be as weak as it comes.

    this clown knows he’s finished, he will never get back on top after all of the damage he’s done to the genre

    I Don’t give a shit about his money nor his business

    his music sucks and people are finally seeing it, just like his enemies that he hates.

    No Wonder his approval rating is 24%

  • Nate

    Afi is on the drugs. Talking out of his ass.

    “One of the worst rappers to sign to a record label”. Now you know you belongs in class going for a GED… Let’s make a list of 500-1000 rappers worse that were signed… I could put that together in a half day….

    hammer does not = 50. Using Hammers or Ice’s name in that comparison would come from a white or old person. Or maybe someone who really doesn’t know their music.

    Your analysis of rapper cred is finished as much as your unsupported claims such as 50 doing “damage to the genre” that’s laughable if anything he has strengthened rappers grinds
    and challenged their work ethic.

    I don’t give a shit about Afi’s opinion.

    Your fake claims suck and we see it from go just like the idiot lames that we hate.

    No wonder you create fake statistics.

      SHUT THE FUCK UP ASSCLOWN.
      AND FUCK WSHH too.

      He is right up there with hammer as a joke and so is many of those pathetic rappers

      5-0 and soulja boy deserves each other, because they are both shit to me.
