Default 50 Cent - Before I Self Destruct [2009]


Well, for all the haters and known doubters on this forum and world-wide alone. This album is one to leave a mark if you were or are a fan of this MC?s music, real talk. I mean, he took it back to the ?Power Of A Dollar? days and ?Guess Who?s Back?. He went back to his element that made tha man named 50 Cent. This album is gritty and hard hitting and edgy. It?s gangsta rap at it?s best, imo of course. But, for tha most part my thoughts haven?t been thorough enuff to cease attention or place doubt into what you are reading. I mean, I?ve been listening to this album since it has hit tha net for 2wks now. And I am addicted to it. If anything this should have been 50?s 2nd album after ?Get Rich or Die Tryin?, real talk.

Production ? This part of tha album. I have fun with like literally. For tha sole purpose there isn?t a dull beat on here. It?s either a nod bangin? beat or simply catchy enuff to grasp ur attention once you hear the hook, real talk. I mean Dr. Dre did his thing on, ?Death To My Enemies?, that beat brings you back to that early 90s style of production. ?Psycho?, which features Eminem, a name to all that should make more reason enuff to youtube it for it?s stellar production, hook, and content. The samples on this album, just makes it more reason enuff to check out the album.
Overall: B+

Content ? Lyrically, we all know 50 isn?t the one to push the envelope. We all WISH he did but the day that happens mean G-Unit will no longer depend on Lloyd Banks aka Mr. PLK (Punchline King) to lyrically bring it among the group. But it?s more of that hardcore gangsta persona 50 Cent made or created to make who he is today. And he does it well too. Tha first track off the album, ?The Invitation?, shows it?s self evident. Throughout this entire album you get tha 50 Cent we all kno frm back in tha days, real talk. Even tho he?s known for his catchy radio friendly records they?re slim on this album., which is always good, lol.
Overall: B-

Songs ? For ?Baby By Me?, to be his lead single for tha album. It?s great in many ways. It shows that 50 has a heart and plus he is trying to win the ladies over too. Which is always a plus too, ya kno. His 2nd single is more than less will be, ?Do You Think About Me?. For tha fact it follows the ?baby mama? situation which was a good reason for ?Baby By Me? to be the lead. Majority of the album is hardcore and less commercial. But at times tha hardcore songs can be catchy too like, ?So Disrespectful?. Which he throws jabs at The Game and Young Buck. Another hardcore track to check out that is catchy is ?Gangsta?s Delight?, another great Dr. Dre beat for ur ears to nod too.
Overall: B

Conclusion ? It goes: ?Get Rich or Die Tryin?, then ?Before I Self Destruct?, then ?Curtis?, then ?The Massacre?. If his albums were lined up like this, then he would be more then enough on top. I mean this was a great album especially something that leaves ?Curtis? & ?The Massacre? in the dust. It?s a great new start for him to show the world that 50 ain?t get rich and stopped tryin, real talk. If anything I want the next album NOW! And this album isn?t even out yet, lol. ?I Got Swag?, is a personal favorite. It?s one of those songs that get stuck in ya head more than twice a day lol. Again, another great album of this year, but many wanna know is this better than ?BP3???? Well? you gotta make that decision, lol.
Overall: B
