Apparently security isn’t tight enough around the G-Unit fortress because 50 Cent’s highly anticipated new album Before I Self Destruct leaked yesterday, prompting the quick release of Fiddy’s brand new collaboration with Eminem, the horrifically banging Psycho. Psycho is in many ways a historic hip-hop occasion, reuniting the old Aftermath family as Dr. Dre puts in epic work behind the boards, dropping an intensely suspenseful beat, 50 returns to the raw and uncut flow we saw on Crime Wave (though what’s up with the English accent in the beginning?) and Eminem does what he does best; drop a mentally imbalanced verse full of Octomom death threats. There’s no way radio’s going anywhere near this one, and that’s exactly what longtime 50 fans will love about it. While Interscope is likely to push up Before I Self Destruct’s release date after the leak, the album’s currently still slated to hit stores on November 23.
