50 Cent says that his upcoming album Before I Self Destruct could make more of an impact than his debut, Get Rich or Die Tryin'.

The New York-born rapper is confident the break since his last album has paid off and that he's hoping for great things.

"I had more time to work on this record. I usually put an album out every two years, so this is almost an additional year," he said.

"This record could potentially be the one to top Get Rich or Die Tryin'. I think it could impact as hard, but not necessarily sell as much."

He also admitted the timing of the release was him "being smart enough not to come down the track while the Eminem train is coming".

However, there could still be a clash, with reports that Eminem will release the Relapse 2 during the same month.

50, who grew up in the tough New York city neighbourhood of Jamaica, Queens and famously served time for drug dealing, also insisted that gangster rap was as relevant as ever.

"People are still living under these circumstances," he insisted. "They ID with it because they have similar struggles or have experienced something similar. They enjoy it (gangsta rap) with a different intensity." read more... at http://news.bbc.co.uk
