XXL & ThisIs50 Present Live Screening of 50 Cent’s Before I Self Destruct Online Tonight
XXLMag.com and thisis50.com have partnered with Ustream to present a live screening of 50 Cent’s directorial debut Before I Self Destruct tonight (November 19).
Fans will have the opportunity to watch the film alongside Fif tonight at 9:30 p.m. EST here on XXLmag.com. Directly following the movie, the G-Unit leader will conduct a live question and answer session with viewers.
BISD depicts 50 Cent as Clarence, a one-time basketball star who resorts to a life of crime after his mother is gunned down, fueled partly by revenge as well as the need to support his younger brother. The film, which shares the same title as the Queen’s rapper’s recently released CD, features brief appearances from Treach of Naughty by Nature and G-Unit member Lloyd Banks, who plays a schoolteacher.
It is but one of two movies that are included with 50’s new disc, currently in stores now. The other is a documentary on the rapper/actor’s deceased mentor, titled 2 Turntables and a Mic: The Life and Death of Jam Master Jay.
As previously reported, Fifty will grace the cover of the forthcoming December/January year-end double issue of XXL magazine, hitting stands on December 1st.
To watch BISD with 50, be sure to tune in to XXLmag.com tonight at 9:30 p.m. EST. —Elan Mancini
