I was a big fan of 50 cent when he came out i though get rich or die trying went down in my all time top 10 best albums.
Then he came out with Masacre which in my eyes wasnt half as good as his first it had one or two good songs but mostly skipable sold out hip hop.
We then had Curtis which was completely sold out hiphop. There was 2 gd songs on it "straight to the bank" and "i get money". The rest was everything he set out to not be from the start.
I think "Before i self distruct" is 50 back to his BEST.
The album is back to dark dirty beats with real lyrical tallent to go with it. my favrioute tracks are "The Invation", "Then The Day Went by", "Death To My Enemies",Hold Me Down", "Crime Wave", "Strech", "Strong Enough", "Baby By Me", "Do you Think About Me", "Ok Your Right".
I relise i have just listed 10 of the 16 tracks on the album but i think if anyone realy gives it a better listening to you will agree with me.
I give this 5 stars and hope his next album lives up to this one.
