Yahoo! Movies premiers a new BEFORE I SELF DESTRUCT Trailer
Santa Monica, CA (October 27, 2009) – This November 50 Cent will be hitting the road to screen his latest film, BEFORE I SELF DESTRUCT. Beginning on Tuesday Oct. 27th, fans can log on to www.movietickets.com/50 to download their tickets* to these exclusive screenings.
About the Film:
Inspired by 50 Cent’s latest album of the same title, BEFORE I SELF DESTRUCT is a gritty 90-minute film, written, directed and starring Curtis Jackson (aka 50 Cent). The film is a coming of age story about an inner city youth raised by a hardworking single mother. When his dream of becoming a basketball player fails to materialize after his mother is tragically gunned down, Clarence (played by Jackson) is consumed by revenge and takes up a life of crime in order to support his younger brother.
About the album:
For the explosive Before I Self Destruct album, 50 Cent returned to working closely with Dr. Dre and Eminem as he did on Get Rich Or Die Tryin’, his first official album. With Dr. Dre and Eminem producing and guesting, Before I Self Destruct is darker and harder than 2007’s Curtis, as shown by the grimy single and video to “OK, You’re Right” (produced by Dr. Dre), which was released earlier this year. In early September, 50 released the hit single “Baby By Me” produced by Polow da Don (Fergie, T.I., Ludacris). For a limited time, the album and movie package will also include a second DVD featuring “Two Turntables and a Microphone: The Life and Death of Jam Master Jay,” a documentary about 50 Cent’s late mentor and friend.
Before I Self Destruct continues 50 Cent’s phenomenal rise from street culture hero to pop culture icon. Both album and film will be released on Shady/Aftermath on November 23, 2009.
