50 Cent is to make his new album into a movie.
The rapper is set to release LP 'Before I Self-Destruct' later this year and is planning a film of the same name to coincide with the record.
50 - real name Curtis Jackson - said: "It's not Prince's 'Purple Rain', but it is inspired by the actual music.
"When movies portray certain lifestyles they don't show cause and effect, but I showed characters under pressure in scenarios where they felt like there were no other options, even though there were."
The 'In Da Club' singer is also working on the movie's soundtrack, but bizarrely it won't include any songs from the album 'Before I Self-Destruct' as he doesn't want the profits to be taken by his record company.
50, who also hopes to direct and produce the film, explained to Rolling Stone magazine: "Interscope would automatically have the rights to it, when they have absolutely no ownership of the actual material."
