50 Cent’s Destruction Date Nears

50 Cent’s oft-delayed album Before I Self Destruct is closing in on its destruction date.

The rapper will release his fourth studio album on November 17, Rap-Up.com has learned. The project, his last of original material for Interscope, has been delayed several times since last year.

“I had the opportunity to make it and then remake it,” 50 recently said of the LP’s delay. “I was limited, just because the system was in a state of confusion with things changing. The music business itself changed. It was definitely periods of 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 of the way to let Eminem’s record go out.”

Before he destructs, Fif will put out his mixtape The 50th Law of Power featuring the song “Flight 187.” He can currently be seen in a city near you promoting his book The 50th Law with co-author Robert Greene.
