Rapper 50 Cent plans to show off his soulful skills on his third album Before I Self-Destruct after falling in love with Motown classics.

The In Da Club hitmaker - real name Curtis Jackson - is planning to shock fans next spring (07) with his new sound.

He says: "I want the music to sound like something I haven't done before so I needed to change the guys I worked with on the last project.

"On my last album I stuck with what people have expected from me already but now I feel more comfortable to do something else. I've been listening to a lot of Motown stuff - Smokey Robinson - a lot of older music, so I got a lot of soulful loops.

"I took material from some old, old records and recreated them."
