50 Cent Announces November 8 Release Date for Album to Accompany His Major Motion Picture Debut

"Music From and Inspired by the Motion Picture Get Rich or Die Tryin'"

Features All New Music From 50 Cent, G Unit and More

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Oct. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- 50 Cent is putting the finishing touches to what is looking to be another blockbuster release this year, the soundtrack to his film debut "Get Rich Or Die Tryin'". The album, ""Music From And Inspired By The Motion Picture Get Rich Or Die Tryin'"", will be released on November 8. The film, directed by Jim Sheridan (In America, My Left Foot) will open in theatres on November 9. The soundtrack will be released on G Unit/Interscope Records and will feature all new music from 50 Cent, and the entire stable of artists on his G Unit Records Imprint.

The first single, "Window Shopper," is a track that exposes the mentality of a rapper who can't afford to buy the things he wants and feels he deserves. It also serves as a focal point for some of the movies most poignant scenes.

Earlier this month, the album track "Hustler's Ambition" was dropped to give people a taste of what to expect from the soundtrack. Its grimy nature will take you back to where it all began, the hungry streets of Queens. DJ's across the country are spinning this track uncontrollably in the clubs.

"I created the music for the soundtrack while I was actually filming the movie. I had a studio trailer with me and would record every day between takes," comments 50 Cent. "I keep telling you, I'm the hardest working man alive."

50 Cent executive produced the album. Sha Money XL is co-executive producer with Dr. Dre and Hi-Tek providing further production. Mase, Nate Dogg and newly signed G Unit members Mobb Deep and M.O.P are also featured on the album.
