The new album will also come with a bonus dvd containing a film of the same title. 50 told Rollingstone the movie will show the complexities of "urban life" saying "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."
Special editions of 50's new album will also include another dvd with a documentary on Jam Master Jay titled "Two Turntables and a Microphone: The Life and Death of Jam Master Jay." 50 says "Times are hard. Everyone is trying to make the most of what they have. I want to give my fans something extra for their hard earned dollars. They'll get a free bonus when the pick up the album."
