50 Cent has made one of the best albums of the year!!! Animal Ambition is dope!
on June 8, 2014
50 cent has stayed true to his time proved and winning formula. Dope beats, catchy hooks, and slick rhymes with street appeal. "Animal Ambition" is a nostalgic N.Y hip hop record but with a pinch of current flavor to appease new listeners and satisfy long time fans like myself. This album has a raw edge to it that only a real former hustler like 50 cent could create. I can feel the bone chilling realness in banging tracks like "irregular heart beat" and "Chase the Paper". The production on every track is diverse, versatile and head nodding. 50 cent gives up and coming producers mad shine on his first album in nearly 5 years. The Dr. Dre produced " Smoke" featuring Trey Songz is pure fire, a club banger for sure. "Hold on" and " Don't worry about it" is vintage 50 cent songs that could of easily been on his first two classic albums, "Get rich or die Trying" and "The Massacre". The artists featured on this record all brought their best verses to compliment their guest appearance on this album brilliantly so. Yo Gotti, Jada Kiss, Styles P, Prodigy and 50's protege Kidd Kidd laced their verses on every track they featured on with precise excellence. 50 cent kicks heartfelt real rap narratives of his success and wealth/opulence and triumph over haters through his legendary career. Every track is urgent, brutally honest and a perpetual middle finger to all who dare not bow down to king 50. My favorite track is " Flip on you" featuring School boy Q. This track is menacing and gully with a dam near show stealing performance from School boy Q. Millions of records sold, accolades, money and undeniable street credibility and respect. 50 cent has nothing left to prove or do at this point in his career. Dominating the indie rap game is something I predict 50 and G Unit can do with relative ease, especially with stellar albums like " Animal Ambition". Hate it or love it- the under dawg is back on top!!!!! 50 cent has won again and he did it his way. Salute!!!!!!!
