Get Up didn't quite do what it was meant to, so Before I Self Destruct got pushed back. The album still hasn't got a release date, but maybe this new single will change that. Produced by Doc Dre, the beat is as awesome as you would expect, thumping kicks, haunting piano, eerie sample, BLAOW, Curtis' performance, on two listens, is a bit meh (minus points for recycled title/subject matter, and the Crag David/Alexander O'nealesque hook). But then I thought that about Get Money, and shit grew on me like a beard.
Oh, and here's the Before I Self Destruct tracklisting, with producer credits.
