Although 50 Cent was hoping to release Before I Self Destruct (an album he has repeatedly stated was essentially finished over a year ago) in December, the G-Unit general’s fourth LP will have to wait until early 2009.

Times are hard,” stated 50 Cent, according to Interscope Records. “Everyone is trying to
make the most of what they have. I want to give my fans something extra
for their hard earned dollars. They’ll get a free bonus when they pick
up the album

Fans can rejoice, however, as Before I Self Destruct comes in a deluxe package which includes not only the album and a 90-minute film written, directed and starring 50 [click to read], but also a second DVD titeld “Two Turntables And A Microphone: The Life And Death Of Jam Master Jay,” a documentary about 50’s late mentor and friend.

Jam Master Jay of Run-DMC gave 50 his first break in music by signing him to JMJ Records in the late 1990s. The documentary will feature appearances by 50, Rev Run, Russell Simmons, Jay-Z and others.
