To celebrate the momentous 50th installment of “THE RELEASE,” MySpace Music will be hosting a special performance by the one-and-only 50 Cent on Monday, November 23 at Highline Ballroom in New York City in conjunction with Hot 97. This special concert for “THE RELEASE” will be a performance to celebrate the release of 50 Cent’s Before I Self Destruct, an album that debuted #1 on iTunes. Doors for the 21+ show will open at 8 p.m. and entry can be obtained by sending an RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org only.
For Before I Self Destruct, 50 Cent’s fourth full-length album, he 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 for “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). Before I Self Destruct continues 50 Cent’s phenomenal rise from street culture hero to pop culture icon.
