Due to rampant Internet bootlegging, Interscope Records will make selected tracks from 50 Cent's "Get Rich Or Die Tryin'", available for download February 4th. The downloads will be sold for .99 via Liquid Audio, Press Play and other services.
The move to offer tracks for download is being made in an attempt to stifle the demand for the bootleg copies that are being heavily traded on the internet.
"Get Rich Or Die Tryin'" will also contain a bonus DVD for the first 500,000 units as incentive to prevent consumers from buying bootleg copies. The album is expected to ship platinum and hits retail shelves February 11.
