(SHOCKER) 50 Cent To Release New Album Same Day As Jay-Z

In a move that seems all too familiar, rapper 50 Cent [click to read] has announced that he will release his fourth studio album the same day Jay Z’s Blueprint 3 is released.

According to YoRaps.com a source in the G-Unit camp has revealed that 50 Cent’s Before I Self Destruct [click to read] will be released on September 11, the exact same day Jay Z’s Blueprint 3 drops.

Almost two years ago, 50 Cent released his third album Curtis the exact same day as Kanye West’s Graduation [click to read]. Ironically, the albums were also released on September 11.

In an interview with Funkmaster Flex two years ago 50 Cent shared his thoughts on releasing an album the same day as Kanye.

"I hope they see and understand what's getting ready to happen," 50 Cent said. "I'm coming September 11. If Kanye comes that day, he comes that day. That'll be great. I think his people are smart, I think he's smart too ... I think they'll move. But I'm coming September 11."

50 Cent’s Before I Self Destruct has been given several release dates, but has been pushed back every time. Most recently, 50 Cent released his War Angel LP and spoke to MTV about the LP.

"This material, I felt it fits the summer," 50 Cent explained to MTV. "The whole vibe. I used the War Angel title for it [because] I read a comic book through Marvel Comics. The guy who created it, he's done 'Nightmare on Elm Street' and illustrations I'm familiar with. He created this concept: War Angel. God created these angels to create war. It's necessary on some level. I took the concept. It's kinda from the perspective I grew up under.”

True, but it would be stupid. His last 2 albums didn't FAIR that well on the charts. This would be a mistake.

"I ain't got beef with 50, no beef with Jay. What's beef when you gettin' head in the six trey?" - The Game "One Blood"

LOL. That came to my mind. I would expect Game to do it though.

not going to lie, it is a decent way of getting exposure; imagine 106th & Park with 50, Game & Jay-Z on the same show together. :o

would improve Game's sales but i don't know if he would win, i wonder who would win that actually lol.

LOL, exactly, it would be going against something Game has already said; so it makes perfect sense. :laugh:

I dunno 50 sold more with Curtis than Jay with AG but AG didn't have the chart singles Curtis had.  Depends who has the bigger singles tbh - Jay seems to be hoping on the Drake hype and more willing to follow the trend.

it'll sell, but has always had huge singles for his albums; In Da Club, Candyshop & I Get Money.

if he doesn't have a top selling single on this album, i don't know what to say lol.

AG didn't have the big charting single. This time Jay will have that. Plus off the hype it's another "Blueprint", dropping 09/11 just as the first one did, and "DOA" is doing real well, this will easily surpass AG in sales.

Well it doesn't have the movie promotion helping it like AG did. I think it solely depends on who has the bigger singles much like Kanye vs 50 did. Cause Kanye had big sucess with Stronger and Good Life whereas Ayo Technology was 50s only top ten hit Kanye sold more.

A real shocker indeed. 50 might have sold more in the past than Jay but right now Jay got this. He has the buzz of the "Blueprint 3" name alone, D.O.A. is a quality and controversial single, has been relatively in the shadows since AG dropped... on the other hand 50 has been over saturating the market since 06, his singles aren't bad but sound predictable and 03-ish, buzz not close to Jay's.... He needs a huge single if not Jay got this easily.

i don't like Jay all that much but he got this shit easy. nobody is checking for 50 any more and as already mentioned, Jay's single has already been out, got plenty of spins and discussion. what has 50 put out recently? a couple of low budget mixtapes where he sounds ok but the only thing resembling a single was that 'Ok, Ok, Alright, Ok' joint, which was laughably bad.

 ;D Good to see 50's confidence is still sky high.
Would be something to checkout if it goes thru.

I'll be supporting both.

Damn Aftermath better cook 50 up one hell of a single, Kanye took 50, now Jay prolly gonna do it again...

I'm a fan of Fif, but I'm prolly anticipating "Blueprint 3" more than "Before I self Destruct", fuckit Ima go listen to the original "Blueprint" now :-D...
