50 Cent Blames Leak, Timing For Low ‘Destruct’ Sales

. So when you got that, you go, ‘Well, what did you actually expect?’,” 50 Cent told DJ Green Lantern during a Sirius Radio interview earlier this week. While the album encountered a series of push backs, dating back to early 2009, 50 Cent says fans got what they wanted in the end. “For myself, I’m asking myself, ‘What did you expect, bro? Your fans got it when it was available, at the first available opportunity,” says 50 Cent. According to Billboard, “Before I Self Destruct” sold roughly 160,000 copies during its release week, a low number for the “Baby By Me” hitmaker who previously predicted the effort would sell nearly 1 million copies first week. Since 2003, 50 Cent has consistently opened atop the Billboard 200 albums chart with sales of no less than 500,000 copies. His last album “Curtis” sold 690,000 copies in 2007.
