Though 50 Cent has sold nearly 30 million albums worldwide and scored eight Top 10 Hot 100 hits (including three #1s), he has not forgotten the hard times.

So 50 Cent has decided to include not one but two DVDs w/ a full-length original movie to his fourth album, Before I Self Destruct (Shady/Aftermath/Interscope), releasing Monday, November 23, 2009.

The 90-minute film, also titled Before I Self Destruct, written, directed and starring Curtis Jackson (aka 50 Cent), 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, he finds himself employed in a supermarket. 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.
But 50 Cent is offering even more for hip-hop fans with Before I Self Destruct. For a limited time, the 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. Hip-hop pioneer Jam Master Jay of Run-DMC gave 50 Cent his first big break in music by signing him to JMJ Records in the late 1990s. In fact, 50's first official recording was an appearance on a 1998 JMJ-produced Onyx album and Jay produced 50 Cent's first, though unreleased, album. 50 Cent executive produced the documentary and appears in the 85-minute film, along with Rev Run, Russell Simmons, Jay-Z, and others.
