G-Unit general 50 Cent is working on his third album, "Before I Self Destruct" which he plans to release next spring. The rapper offered a simple explanation for the album's title. He told MTV.com, "Because it could potentially happen."

50 Cent added, "I show more vulnerability on this record than on others. I'm in a space where I can experiment a little bit. I mean, I felt a lot of pressure between each one of my projects. And they don't say, 'Do you think 50 can make a good record?'They say, 'Do you think he can do it again?'And that means (if I will) have the same success as I've had on each one of those projects. They don't care whether the state of the music business is changing; they'll say I've failed if I don't do what I did on the first two projects."

The rapper further explained that digital downloading has changed the music business. He said, "So 11 million records on my first album and 9.5 on my second album. And when I'm getting ready to go into this project, considering that Apple is selling millions of iPods and Microsoft is coming out with competing products and Sony -- everybody has something that encourages people to download material instead of purchasing the actual CD. The general public will still take advantage of it and say that I'm becoming less of an artist."

I'll download this. The truth is, I enjoy 50 & G-Unit sometimes, I have my specific tracks that I think they kill. The fact is, that 50 was his illest on the mixtape game and Get Rich or Die Tryin' was a classic, but what the fuck happened to The Massacre? Fiddy should stuck to doin' hardcore gangsta ass shit like he was, fuck the R&B, fuck the singin' choruses.

This album was supposed to be called 9 Bullets Later... which I thought was grimey, but he can't keep talking about the past....
