"Get Rich Or Die Tryin'"
2003 was a very good year for 50 Cent... Having 2 big hit records reaching
#1, and having his album coproduced by Dr. Dre and Eminem, it's obvious how
Get Rich Or Die Tryin' became a popular #1 album.
"What Up Gangsta" is a cool bouncy rap tune, where "Patiently
Waiting" gets a little serious, where Eminem helps out on vocals. "Many
Men (Wish Death)" is another serious number, "In Da Club" was a huge
#1 hit in 2003, and everyone just loves reciting "it's your birth-day" as 50
Cent does in this particular song.
It's obvious to hear the Eminem influence on the album tracks, the serious
of lyrics, as well the musical style. "High All The Time" has 50 Cent
on vocals, and it's easy to determine how Eminem would have his hand in
producing, likewise "Heat," where you can hear both the influences of
Eminem and Dr. Dre.
Bouncy rap gets the juices going on "If I Can't," "Blood Hound"
has a more Eminem style, likewise "Back Down." "P.I.M.P." is
another enjoyable rap tune, where it could have been as popular as his other
well-known songs. "Like My Style" has a laid back style, "Poor Lil
Rich" maybe one of the least listenable songs. "21 Questions" was
another #1 hit, not as popular as "In Da Club," but it became 50 Cent's
second top-charting hit of his career.
Lloyd Banks and Eminem help out on "Don't Push Me," another energetic
Eminem-inspired song, a combination of soul and rap mixes well on "Gotta Make
It To Heaven." There are 3 bonus tracks: "Wanksta" is a cool and
entertaining tune, with some cool rhythms. "U Hot Like Me" has some
cool grooves, and "Life's On The Line" is a fair song, maybe another
For the Eminmen fan, it's easy to hear his influence on Get Rich Or Die
Tryin'." And having Dr. Dre and Eminem as producers, it's obvious they
put 50 Cent on the rap map. There are many well-done and entertaining songs
crafted on this release, and it's a wonder if 50 Cent will succeed with new
releases in the future. Rap music in the Eminem style has a different
demension here, and it's interesting to see how rap in general proceeds, as
it reflects on its lyrics, either positive or negative.
2003 was a great year for 50 Cent, and we look to see if his success
