All this is fact and unexplainable seeing that Before I Self Destruct was the better album of the three. Maybe it was the constant dissing. As mainstream music has moved into another direction since Get Rich or Die Tryin’ Curtis is still on the same formula. Maybe the backlash is from Curtis’ hiatus from music. Without mixtape’s flooding the streets or constant freestyles 50 cent is becoming irrelevant.
