50 Cent Pushes Up 'BISD' Release Date, Understands Beanie Sigel's Frustration With Jay-Z
Â 50 Cent's highly anticipated album Before I Self Destruct will be in stores a week earlier than expected.
The album, which was initially slated to hit stores on November 23rd, leaked onto internet last week.
The G-Unit boss revealed to the Gomez Brothers yesterday (October 31) that his oft-delayed opus will now be hitting stores on November 16th.
"I’m pushing the record up; it’ll be out on the 16th. I’m expecting it to do good because of the response I’ve heard on the web, “said 50 Cent.” I feel good that it was leaked in its entirety, in sequence. So people can hear my vision."
50 Cent also took time out to address the current feud between Beanie Sigel and his former boss Jay-Z. As reported earlier, Sigel dropped a diss track earlier this week taking shots at Jay-Z.
The Philly rapper would then appear on a radio show claiming that Jay-Z failed to support his career and was underpaying former Rocafella artists who were joining him on tour. Sigel also revealed that Jay-Z blocked him from signing with G-Unit which would have put him in a better financial position.
"That whole shit is a mess," 50 Cent said. “I understand where his frustration comes from, because there was a point where– He would’ve had a serious check.”
“I think he did have legitimate complaints because of my choices,” added 50. “ Like when they tell me you was giving the nigga $1250? [Silence.] A group? [Silence.] A motherfucker can’t even afford no pussy with $1250. [Laughs.] These niggas is staying in nice hotels. If a bitch order room service twice, you’re done. [Laughs.] You know what it is, it’s traditional business. My business model comes from the curb so I’ma take care of my niggas a little different, cuz they my people."
