50 Cent Disses Game, Young Buck on Leaked Album Snippets
A four-song collection of snippets by rapper 50 Cent recently leaked on the ‘net, featuring all new, controversial material. The songs are purportedly samples from 50’s rumored ‘Before I Self Destruct‘ album, which was scheduled for release before 2007’s ‘Curtis,’ but was pushed back.
The snippets are much less commercially appealing than 50’s work over the past five years, featuring a more dark, malevolent sound. The first song features a hoarse-voiced 50 going hard at former G-Unit members The Game and Young Buck, saying, “It was five of us/all of us millionaires/Now one’s a f—— junkie/The other one’s a f—ing queer/Now it’s three of us/That’s how it started.”
It seems odd that 50 would revisit the G-Unit drama now, and the track sounds like something 50 might have recorded for a mixtape around the time of their beef, rather than something he’d be releasing officially. The original version of ‘Before I Self Destruct’ was allegedly scrapped in favor of a more updated tracklisting, so it’s likely that these snippets are outtakes from a previous version.
50 has described the ‘BISD’ as having a more “soulful” sound than previous releases, combined with some classic “boom bap” hip hop. Production is said to be handled by DJ Premier (!), Sha Money XL, Play-N-Skillz, Ty Fyffe and more, and the album is slated for a September 29 release date. Wait for Game’s six million bar response any minute now.
