50 Cent Before I Self Destruct Is Certified Gold Not A Flop!!!!!!!




=== Commercial Performance ===

The album sold 160,000 copies in its first week of release in The United States, debuting at number 5, according to Billboard. Due to the album leaking on October 28, nearly four weeks ahead of the original release date of November 23, the album was released exclusively to itunes on November 9 and was physically released to stores on November 16, a week later. Due to this unique circumstance, 50 Cent's label Interscope requested that Billboard and Nielson Soundscan delay charting the album for a week, so the first week digital sales were added to the total amount of albums sold between November 16 and November 22. The album sold 46,000 copies during its itunes exclusive week, meaning that 114,000 copies were sold between November 16 and November 22.
