Last night 50 Cent went on the air with Funk Master Flex, where he addressed projections that "Before I self Destruct" might only sell 160000 within the first week. As we predicted, 50 cent told Flex that if the numbers aren't high its not his fault. He blamed the album being leak among other issues.

According to music sales projection site, rapper and actor 50 cent "Before I Self Destruct" will not be a #1 hit. They are speculating that the album will land behind chart topper John Mayer’s new LP Battle Studies (projected to push 275,000-300,000) and possibly albums from songstress Norah Jones, Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli, and Christian band Casting Crowns.
