50 Cent hasn't had much luck when it comes to acting. Or movies. Or feuds. Or selling albums as of late. But that hasn't stopped the ambitious young man/vitamin water guru from playing renaissance man by directing as well as starring in Before I Self Destruct, a low-budget "film" that will accompany 50's feverishly unanticipated forthcoming album of the same name in a DVD/CD double-disc set. Here's a trailer. It's, uh, something. Will 50's debut as an auteur match the success of Get Rich or Die Tryin', Home of The Brave or that shitty direct-to-DVD action movie he did with Val Kilmer and Sharon Stone? We remain, as always, cautiously optimistic.
