50 Cent Breaks Down "Before I Self Destruct" LP


50 Cent has revealed details surrounding his upcoming Before I Self Destruct album and said the Curtis follow-up will feature guest appearances by Ne-Yo and R. Kelly.

 According to 50, Dr. Dre provided four produced tracks for the G-Unit leader's latest effort.

"I didn't do a lot of collaborating," Fif revealed. "I wrote the record and I had so much time to write so many ideas that I wanted to make sure people heard me...I had the time to make it what I wanted. Me and [Eminem] doing the 'Psycho' joint is crazy on the record. I did this joint with R. Kelly, it's actually a bonus because it's track 16 on the joint...R.Kelly was the last one [besides Ne-Yo]. [Me and Dre,] we did four joints on this album. I had more time with Dre on this record than the other one..." (Shade 45)
The album's cover art landed online last week and will reportedly offer a limited edition deluxe version upon it's retail release.

Be sure to look out for the Limited Editon Deluxe Package as well...Regular and Deluxe Copies of Before I Self Destruct will be available for pre-order on I-Tunes in October with Some Exclusive Bonus Tracks upon its release. Resembling a more Terminator-like version of 50's Curtis album, the new cover once again features solely the rapper's face as half of it appears to be ready to burst as though the rapper were filled with magma. Confirmed by Fif, the project's final release date has been set as November 17th, and is expected to be the last official solo album he makes for Shady/Aftermath/Interscope.

Same amount of Dre tracks as GRODT. I never expect loads of Dre tracks on a 50 album. Looking forward to it.

50 should be asked about how he feels about Dr. Dre workin' with The Game again after all these years, or maybe their beef was just a big fuckin publicity stunt :D

Really think this album is going to be a good effort from 50. Better then curtis maybe not as good as GRODT. Hopefully it will keep its release date. Its seems positive, i.e the releasing of the front cover and 50's starting to make his presence felt again.

The most Dre involvement since GRODT. "Massacre" and "Curtis" each just had 2 Dre tracks.

Massacre actually had a lot of Dre involvement. He practically mixed the whole album, the 2 beats on the retail version, plus Outta Control remix, When It Rains It Pours, Talk About Me, How We Do, Westside Story, Higher.... all made in the Massacre session or whatever. 50 was just being a bitch when he complained Dre wasn't 100% into his project.

to be honest with you, Dre & 50 don't really have that magic together IMO.

but i was mainly commenting on the fact that Eminem gets a whole album with Dre while 50 only gets 4 productions ;)

I was addressing those that would consider "4" to be not enough. Ah man... if you heard the original version of "The Massacre" before the album was submitted to Iovine, you'd be suprised at how good it was. It would've been on par with GRODT, if not better. "Outta Control" was initially considered to be the street single (after the original version with Dre and Game spitting on addressing the VIBE Awards incident was scrapped) with "Window Shopper" as the lead radio single. The "Outta Control Remix" was slated for the album. "Talk About Me", "Best Friend", "Hustler's Ambition", "Hate It or Love It" and "When It Rains, It Pours" were part of the original product ("How We Do", "Higher" and "Westside Story" were always intended for The Game). Iovine opted for more radio friendly joints so Fif went and did a handfull of songs with Scott Storch. The other tracks were re-worked and spread out through the re=release and GRODT OST.

Yeah I was kinda under the impression after they went in again this 2nd time to "redo" the album that Dre would be handling most of the production. From a "comeback" standpoint on Dre's behalf it makes alot of sense leading into whenever Relapse 2 and Detox drop.

Any chances the R. Kelly collabo is a version of "It Could've Been You" with 50 Cent verses instead of Bishop Lamont?

Bishop never rapped on that song. It was Slim Da Mobster trying to sound like Bishop.

I hope its good, I use to be a 50 Fan, before he fell off....GRODT was a classic record. And I hope the 4 Dre joints dont include "Alright Ok
and "I Get It In" those were terrible. My expectations are to high, but if it turns out great, then im in for a treat!

the oriiginal version of the massacre sounds fucking good from the description of the tracks that were meant to be on there. more evidence of iovine messing up quality albums. no denying candy shop was a monster single, but its no outta control rmx.

and it seems like dre's input on this new album could still range from minimal to pretty heavy, based on what we know. if one or more of the dre joints are tracks we already heard and that's it, then its pretty weak. on the other hand, if all four tracks are fresh new material and dre also mixed a handful of other tracks on there, could be something to look forward to.

on the whole i am pessimistic that this release will be very good. 50 sounded pretty good on some of those mixtapes and leaked tracks, but has been getting progressively worse/cornier on his commercial material. 'baby by me' is a new all-time low for mr cent and is terrible whatever way you look at it.

People love to hate on 50 but in my opinion he's released 1 classic album to the mainstream - Get Rich or Die Trying.  One album that borders classic and as rebel mentioned if they og version was put out would have been classic - the Massacre.  And, one good album - Curtis.  Yeah, he might have 2 to 4 "bad" or pop song songs on his past two efforts but out of 16 to 18 tracks that's not bad.  If he had released a ten track version of the massacre or curtis people would dismiss it as an ep.  Yet, when other artist do it ala Kanye West people claim it's a classic record.  Too much hate for him.  His track record is solid despite what the naysayers say.

I thought the "Get Rich or Die Tryin" soundtrack was also a dope effort from 50 as well as a lot of those G-Unit solo projects he had a hand in. He's always gonna be cool to hate because he refuses to admit defeat. That's a hard characteristic for the public to embrace in a recording artist in the long run. Most artists will try and humble themselves to the public when the crowd turns on them but 50 enjoys playing the "bad guy" card a lot of the times.

Anyone know if they still plan to include a DVD of the movie with the deluxe edition of this album?
