Fif has described his new album as being "harder" than previous releases.
"Not particularly this song, but the entire project -- I meant for it to be a little harder and what I fell in love with about hip-hop and within hip-hop," 50 explained about his upcoming project. "I accomplished it. Before I Self Destruct is absolutely harder than Get Rich or Die Tryin' or other projects in between. The Massacre had some real aggressive content on it, but there were other things I wanted to do, like 'Ryder Music,' 'Baltimore Love Thing,' 'Build You Up,' featuring Jamie Foxx. This project, I kept all of those things out of it. I just made it what I wanted it to be. This album is my album right now. It's like the prequel to Get Rich -- the things I missed on that project."

He previously said the project would land in stores on November 17th and feature production from Dr. Dre.
"I didn't do a lot of collaborating," Fif revealed. "I wrote the record and I had so much time to write so many ideas that I wanted to make sure people heard me...I had the time to make it what I wanted. Me and [Eminem] doing the 'Psycho' joint is crazy on the record. I did this joint with R. Kelly, it's actually a bonus because it's track 16 on the joint...R.Kelly was the last one [besides Ne-Yo]. [Me and Dre,] we did four joints on this album. I had more time with Dre on this record than the other one..." (Shade 45)
50 Cent recently confirmed reports of Before I Self Destruct dropping on the same day as pop stars Rihanna and Lady Gaga.
"I guess I should be devastated that I'm up against Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga and Britney Spears?" 50 said in an interview. "This is a great competition, you mean to tell me I get the chance to go into a battle against pop singers? I don't see myself in competition with artists that aren't even in the same genre. Could you find a rapper for me to compete with please? Now I gotta fight Justin? I'm gonna fight him and kick his a**!" (The Canadian Press)
Before I Self Destruct will now land in stores Monday, November 23rd.
