50 Cent – The Massacre review

50 Cent The Massacrewritten by Plus One

From the introduction to “The Massacre” we’re led into a realm which we begin to really appreciate. “In My Hood” through “I’m Supposed To Die Tonight” contain a sinister enough feel which leads us to believe that maybe 50 is approaching his sophomore album with a smoother, more conniving angle before killing that buzz by giving us one of the most over hyped tracks in history; “Piggy Bank.” Now, although entertaining and arguably effective, the excitement surrounding the supposedly heated diss track calms itself to a mere smirking level with soft jabs applied towards Fat Joe, Jadakiss, Shyne and Nas (receiving the most biting of the hits).

50 Cent The Massacrewritten by Psycho Analysis

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 Guess Whos Backwritten by Christopher “Scav” Yuscavage

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).

But returning from the massive success of his debut album Get Rich or Die Tryin’, one obstacle exists that 50 Cent simply cannot survive on his second album, The Massacre: his own version of the “sophomore slump.”
