50 Cent Readies Reissue of The Massacre for September 6th Release

Album to Feature New Track, Videos

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Aug. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- The 50 Cent series of knockout punches continues as he prepares a new version of his chart-topping album, The Massacre. The new version, which will include bonus videos and an all-new previously unreleased track, will be in stores September 6th.

The original version of The Massacre has already gone on to sell over 6 million copies worldwide, firmly establishing 50 Cent as one of the reigning kings of hip-hop. Earlier this year, 50 accomplished something that no artist had done since the Beatles in 1964, landing four singles simultaneously in the Billboard Hot 100.

The new version of The Massacre will feature a video for every song on the album; 21 total. In addition, the song "Outta Control" will be replaced by the "Outta Control Remix," featuring the newest signees to 50's G-Unit Records, legendary Queens duo Mobb Deep.

"I'm the king of originality," states 50 Cent. "No artist has ever done this before. The videos allow consumers to see exactly what I was thinking about when I made the music."

50 Cent has just wrapped production on his motion picture debut, "Get Rich Or Die Tryin," directed by Jim Sheridan ("In America" and "My Left Foot"). The film will open in theaters this November. In addition, 50 Cent's video game, "Bulletproof," will be coming out through Vivendi Universal Games on November 15th.
