For his part, 50 Cent blamed the poor sales on a leak of the album that had occurred weeks before it was officially released in November 2009. “For myself, I’m asking myself, ‘What did you expect, bro? Your fans got it when it was available, at the first available opportunity,’ ” he said on Sirius Satellite Radio. “For me this album is a prequel—it’s full circle. ” The relatively poor showing of Before I Self Destruct came during a down period in 50 Cent’s life, a time where he said he lost several million dollars in the stock market during America’s Great Recession.

The rapper will reportedly get back “in it” in 2014 with the release of his fifth and sixth studio albums, Animal Ambition and Street King Immortal. The latter originally was scheduled to be released earlier, but kept getting delayed for various reasons. As his fans waited for the release of Street King Immortal, 50 Cent kept his name in the headlines.

None of the other ventures he was involved in took 50 Cent away from his music career for long. In March 2005, his second album, The Massacre, was released. The release—featuring the singles “Disco Inferno,” “Candy Shop,” and “Just a Lil Bit”—debuted at number one on Billboard’s chart and sold more than one million copies in its first week. Overall, critics gave the album slightly worse reviews than they had for 50 Cent’s previous release. By no means was that a knock on The Massacre, however. It was simply a nod to the fact that 50 Cent’s first album had been considered an all-time classic.
