Interscope Records have reacted to bootlegging, piracy, and overall demand and implemented the same tactics as they did when they released "The Eminem Show," and have pushed the release date up by five days. The release of "Get Rich Or Die Tryin," is now due on Thursday, February 6th, 2003. On the new date 50 had this to say : "I’m excited that the streets are anxious to have my album so I’m just gonna give them what they want, the real version. And if I catch any bootleggers they gonna have to deal with me. Believe me G-Unit is combing the block. I’m lookin for that van."
Senior Executive of Sales and Marketing for Interscope Geffen A&M, Steve Berman also commented on the early release : "Once again we find ourselves pushing up an album. This is an unfortunate road that we have been down before but luckily we know what measures to take. We immediately turned up the heat. In conjunction with our partners at retail we are confident that we will meet the demand and get the product in stores."
Dont forget the first 500,000 copies pressed include the limited edition DVD which contains behind the scenes footage, exclusive interviews and live performances! So get your hand's on a copy as soon as it drops!
