50 Cent’s Before I Self Destruct Projected to Sell 150-160K in First Week

The one day sales number are in and it’s not looking good for rap superstar 50 Cent.

According to trusted industry insider, Fif’s long delayed fourth solo album, Before I Self Destruct, is projected to sell 150,00 to 160,000 in its first week on the shelves.

If the estimations are correct, this will be the lowest debut week for the G-Unit general. 50 sold 872,000 copies of Get Rich or Die Tryin’ in 2002. In 2004, his sophomore album, The Massacre, rang up over 1.15 million discs and his latest LP Curtis moved close to 695,000 units.

Originally scheduled to drop on November 23 BISD was pushed up to a November 16 date after the album leaked online nearly a month ago.

The album has been available on iTunes since November 9, but, according to Billboard, because of the unique situation Nielsen SoundScan will be including those digital sales as a part of his first week tally. —Max G
