No more delays. [artist id="860639"]50 Cent[/artist] is actually releasing his Before I Self Destruct LP earlier than expected. After the LP leaked last week, Fif called into satellite radio station Shade 45′s “The Gomez Brothers” show on Saturday to announce that instead of November 23, he’d drop the album on November 16.
“I feel good that it was leaked in its entirety, in sequence, so people can hear my vision,” said 50, whose “Baby by Me” video premiered on Monday. “Instead of pieces, where I would be like, ‘Damn, I spent my time sequencing.’
“I’m pushing the record up, so the album release date is the 16th,” he added. “I’m expecting [the album] to do good because of the response that I’ve heard on the Web. It’s obvious they didn’t expect me to write the actual things I wrote on the album. I don’t know why. They’re like, ‘This sh– is on fire.’ I’m like, ‘What are you surprised for, stupid?’ ”
50 also talked about Beanie Sigel and Jay-Z’s falling out, which came to a head after Sigel released the dis track “What You Talkin Bout (I Ain’t Your Average Cat).” Sig said that Jigga didn’t take care of some of his Roc-A-Fella artists like 50 did for G-Unit.
“When they tell me you was [paying the Young Gunz] $1,250? A group?” Fif asked incredulously. “These n—as is staying in nice hotels. If a [girl] orders room service twice, you’re done. You know what it is, it’s traditional business. My business model comes from the curb, so I’mma take care of my n—as a little different, ’cause they my people.
“A lot of the times when I say, ‘Jay is a cool punk,’ don’t get it f—ed up; he’s a smart guy,” he added. “You can’t take away from him what he’s done in the actual business and in the game. But since he lost to Nas, he hasn’t competed. … Every time somebody came, Beans went out in the front [line] with Jadakiss. [Jay] had the Cam’ron issues. Then when Cam came back and it was issues again, the Tru-Life deal was signed. And when Tru-Life got into an altercation with [Cam'ron], that one stopped. That’s what stopped the Cam beef.”
