50 Cent’s new album pushed back to next year

'Before I Self Destruct' will now come out in 2009

The release date of 50 Cent‘s forthcoming new album, ‘Before I Self Destruct’, has been pushed back to 2009 – although a final release date is yet to be confirmed.

The album, which will be the rapper’s fourth, had been scheduled for release on December 16, although Billboard reports that the date has been pushed back because of looming deadlines with regard to advertising tied in with the album’s release.

The album is set to feature guest parts from Dr Dre and Eminem, while ‘Get Up’, the first single from the album, was produced by Scott Storch.

Eminem, meanwhile, has announced that his next album ‘Relapse’ will be released in early 2009.
