A month after an official release date for his new album "Before I Self Destruct" was unveiled, 50 Cent came out announcing that the effort has been pushed back. Originally set for September 29 U.S. release, the record is now scheduled to be put out for purchase across the country in early November.
"I was limited [with] time on my other projects, and this one, just because the system was in a state of confusion with things changing - the music business itself changed," he said during an interview backstage at the Coke Live Festival, in Cracow, Poland on August 22. "And it was definitely a time where I felt like I was ready and it wasn't a possibility for me to release the record at that point."
"And then the Eminem train came running down the track and I had to get out the way to let Eminem's record [Relapse] go out. Because he had been off for two years, it made good sense for to let him go out first."
Furthermore, 50 Cent also revealed a film version of "Before I Self Destruct", which marks the rapper's directorial debut and is based on the album's tracks, will be included in the album's packaging. "Because I had additional time, I wrote, produced and directed my own film, 'Before I Self Destruct' and it'll actually be within the album's packaging. So when you buy the record, you'll get the film that I wrote," he stated.
