Editorial Reviews

Deluxe CD/DVD edition includes bonus DVD that contains a full length feature film of the same name. 2009 album from the Rap superstar. Before I Self Destruct is 50's fourth studio album and features collaborations with his mentors Dr. Dre and Eminem. Darker and harder than his last two releases, the album is a return to the roots and feel of 50 Cent's debut album, 2003's 'Get Rich Or Die Trying', which went on to sell 12 million copies worldwide. Includes the first single 'Baby By-Me' featuring Ne-Yo.

I was so excited to listen to 50 Cent's "Before I Self Destruct" because I had just seen his movie, "Get Rich or Die Tryin'" and listening to a lot of his music because my iPod's shuffle mode loves to surprise me with 50 Cent songs. You may think that I was let down because I gave this LP 3 stars and while I was expecting more, I still like the release as a whole. What I dislike most about 50 is that he will not branch out and work with other producers. I am not a fan of Dr. Dre's beats. I realize that he and Dre are close friends and that 50 is in his comfort zone working with him, but his music could be so much better if he worked with a better producer.

This album is lengthy; 16 tracks. It took me some time to listen to the entire work, but I never have a problem with lengthy albums because it means the artist gave you your moneys worth. Most of the tracks are mid-tempo. Out of the 16 tracks, only two stood out: "Psycho" and "Baby By Me." Those tracks are fantastic; 50 really did well. "Psycho" features one of the best to ever do it, Eminem, and together they made magic, even atop of a Dr. Dre beat. "Baby By Me" is 100% radio friendly. This song features Neyo and they both do a fine job. The beat is hot, too! In "So Disrespectful", he talks about Jay-Z, The Game and Young Buck. I like the track.

I recommend this album to fans of 50 Cent for it is not bad, it's just not his best work. His lyrics are still great and basically he's still the same 50 that we know and love.

Mikeisha's Top 5
1. "Baby By Me"
2. "So Disrespectful"
3. "Psycho"
4. "Do You Think About Me"
5. "Stretch"

i have waiting a long time for this album, but some cuts like baby by me, made me insecure that i was expecting of the album, but i would take it anyway, but we cannot judge a album for 1 song, then when crime wave came to the light i was Hell Yeah this hit hard, but in a few words to not making too long this is THE BEST ALBUM OF 2009 its extremely gangsta lyrics and production theres only like RnB 2-3 songs but these are not so bad, Before I Self Destruct is so different in the good way, comparing to these days corny hip hop and with an A-list of infinite guest rappers use in his albums (these albums better call for example "Jay-Z and Friends present The Blueprint 3"), 50 with Em in one Song in his Album its ENOUGH for it, and the production its extremely good even than the only A-List producer is Dre in 3 songs the and rest is at the same quality with not A-list producers, for last i have to say I am very proud of this album FINALY some Gangsta Rap to the media.

After such a dissapointing Junior album, Curtis, Before I Self Destruct shows 50 cent in good form. Most fans say that the 3rd album lacked street content and Before I Self Destruct's first half definitely serves up that missing content but it's done over average or below average production.

The second half of the album feels like 50 cent and Interscope had trouble finding a single to sell the album and so they packed as many half decent potential singles as possible on the disc, the only gem on this second half is Do You Think About Me which is one of 50's most personal tracks since Hate It or Love It.

The JMJ documentary and BISD the movie make this hefty price tag well worth the purchase though.

Before I Self Destruct (2009) is an uncompromising view of life in the inner-city that focuses on how things can change without warning. When that happens, you can be forced into making decisions that alter your path and the life of those around you. The story is told from the view of Clarence (Curtis Jackson), who also adds insightful narrative of his thoughts and past throughout the film.

Clarence and Shocka (Elijah Williams) are nurtured and loved by their hardworking single mother. Shocka is gifted academically and excelling in school while Clarence works at the grocery store after his future as a talented basketball player was shattered when he was injured on the court. Coming home one evening Clarence walks by the scene of a shooting without much thought, that is, until the police come to the door with the news that their mother was killed during a shooting. Life gets even harder when Clarence comes home to find an eviction notice the same night he is fired from his job for stealing food to feed his little brother.

After committing an act that opens the door to an illegal life he starts working for Sean (Clifton Powell) as an enforcer. He enforces Sean's enterprise and the code of the streets with deadly force. Shocka's life keeps getting better because Clarence shields him from everything. He is a positive role model at home and keeps Shocka on the right path. As Shocka asks... How long can this continue?

7 out of 10 - Rated R - Overall it is a powerful and thoughtful film that will leave a lasting impression on you. A few hilarious moments are thrown in to offset some of the seriousness. The acting is pretty simple and mostly holds true to the story and life, although a few of the lines from non-lead actors come across unnatural and forced at times.
