G-Unit – God’s Plan review

Is there an emcee hotter in the streets right now than 50 Cent? While 50 has been one of the most underrated emcees in the industry for years, it wasn’t until the smash hit “Wanksta” that the mainstream and commercial audience jumped on the bandwagon of 50 Cent and his crew G-Unit. Now it seems as if 50 is everybody’s favorite emcee and his debut album entitled “Get Rich Or Die Trying” due out in February will be a huge success. In the mean time 50 and his G-Unit soldiers continue to put out what seems like a new mixtape every couple of weeks as the streets continue to eat them up. “God’s Plan” continues the 50 Cent mixtape formula of jacking the industries finest production and remaking them with his G-Unit crew consisting of Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo.

50 Cent – The Massacre review

In recent years, there has been one emcee that dominated each year before everyone started getting sick of him and his work began to diminish. You have Nelly from 1999-2000, Eminem from 2001-2002, 50 Cent and G-Unit in 2003 and Kanye West in 2004. After some failed attention-seeking mix tape appearances, 50 Cent is now trying to bring back the glory of G-Unit in 2005—fresh off the success of label mate The Game’s debut album, The Documentary—with his sophomore release, The Massacre.

50 Cent – The Massacre review

50 Cent is a true survivor – 9 shots, including one to his jaw that forever altered his speech, an upbringing that cosigns orphan Annie’s “hard knock life,” and a hip-hop career that started off by dissing other rappers (“How To Rob” featuring the Madd Rapper) and included disses back from fellow rappers (Jay-Z’s “I’m about a dollar, what the —- is “fifty cent?” declaration).

50 Cent – Guess Who’s Back? review

While most artists in the Hip-Hop industry talk about the harsh reality of the streets, few actually live the tales they boast about. 50 Cent is one of the few artists who know first hand about the drama of the streets. Having survived a tragic shooting, including a shot to the face, 50 Cent has come back stronger and hungrier than ever. The streets which he represents almost killed him, however, 50 hasn’t let that keep him down. If anything, the shooting motivated 50 to come back and prove to all the critics that he’s much more than a one hit wonder that many have labeled him as.

50 Cent – Get Rich Or Die Tryin review

“Don’t believe the hype”. Those immortal words once spoken by Public Enemy in 88′ now ring true almost a decade later. The word hype is an interesting concept in Hip-Hop. On one hand it is the driving force behind an artists success. 50 Cent has almost redefined the term hype in 2002. His G-Unit mixtapes and guest appearances propelled the Queens native into super stardom even before his debut album ever dropped. Hype was certainty defined by 50 in 2002. However, on the other hand, for many artists its that same hype that ultimately leads to their downfall as they cannot live up to the standards set upon them. Back in 1998 a much hyped debut album by Canibus went onto be an utter disaster, as it was the hype or lack of reaching such status that destroyed his career. While Canibus’ and 50 Cent’s career’s are total opposites, they do run a very similar path as both emcees went the opposite route to becoming stars, doing so even before they dropped an album. After all the hype and anticipation 50 Cent’s “Get Rich Or Die Tryin” falls into that category of not living up to the hype.
