50 Cent, Chris Brown move up album release dates
The release date of 50 Cent's fourth major-label album, "Before I Self Destruct," has been moved--again. The album originally was slated for a December 2008 release, which was pushed back to Nov. 23 of this year.
Now, the album, which was leaked almost a full month before the expected release date, is slated to come out on Nov. 16 in an effort to combat widespread piracy, according to a press release.
As previously reported, the album will be packaged with two movies: a coming-of-age film written, directed and starring 50 Cent, and a documentary about 50's late mentor and friend, Jam Master Jay of Run-DMC fame.
In related news, Chris Brown also has pushed up the release of his album "Graffiti" from Dec. 15 to Dec. 8, according to a Billboard report. No reason was given for the change.
