Like the last two albums by his mentor Eminem and his own 2003 debut, the new collection by rapper 50 Cent will be released earlier than planned in response to widespread bootlegging. "The Massacre," which is expected to be a commercial blockbuster, will now come out on Thursday instead of the scheduled March 8. The rapper's debut, "Get Rich or Die Tryin'," has sold more than 7 million copies in the U.S. and was the biggest-selling album of 2003.

Rapper 50 Cent, whose benefactor and mentor Eminem weathered similar accusations earlier in his career, is taking heat for comments about gays that appear in the April issue of Playboy magazine. After using a common pejorative for gays, 50 Cent adds, "I don't like gay people around me, because I'm not comfortable with what their thoughts are. I'm not prejudiced. I just don't go with gay people and kick it -- we don't have that much in common."
