Mega rap star 50 Cent has decided to push his highly anticipated album Before I Self Destruct to next year. 

The platinum-selling artist will leave fans waiting a bit longer as he moves his fourth and final Interscope solo project back from its' original release date in December. However, the rapper-turned-actor will also be offering fans a bonus DVD to accompany the deluxe edition album called Two Turntables and a Microphone: The Life and Death of Jam Master Jay Documentary. In addition to the doc, 50 will also include a full-length, theatrical DVD, sharing the same name as the album title, written, directed and starring himself.

"Times are hard," 50 said in a statement. "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 the pick up the album."

Focusing on 50's late mentor and friend, Run DMC's Jam Master Jay, the 85-minute disc will include appearances from Reverend Run, Russell Simmons, Jay-Z and more. 

As previously reported by SOHH, the G-Unit leader's forthcoming project will feature production from EminemDr. Dre and Scott Storch
