More so than any other music since the blues, hip-hop is all about stories. And its stories are both criminal minded and grand, making them enthralling and unbelievable, but also making them only as interesting and convincing as the teller. That’s why, despite being blackballed by the industry, without a major-label recording contract, heads still gravitated to Jamaica, Queens’ ... Read more in Amazon's 50 Cent Store

Editorial Reviews

If you believe everything you hear, Curtis is 50 Cent's bid to be hip-hop king--the rumor goes that he issued it the same day Kanye West released his Graduation CD to spawn a sales race and thus, a) establish superiority, or b) retire with his head hung low. But here's what might not have occurred to 50: Given enough talent and a fully loaded speed-dial--the kind that can raise Timbaland, Akon, Dr. Dre, Mary J. Blige, and Eminem faster than the sickest rapper can stitch together a verse--it's possible for two diabolically good discs to drop the same day. Forgetting the Kanye competition for a moment, Curtis might come up short in a race with its creator's other albums--the rawness and reach of Get Rich Or Die Tryin' isn't here. But certain cultural moments (who would refute that the release Get Rich… was one?) can't be replicated, and what Curtis lacks in credible grit, it more than makes up for in finesse. Never let it be said that you can't be fierce and flow at the same time: "I Get Money" glides back to the old school in sound--there's a house party happening behind this track--but sends out a modern message, "I'll Still Kill," with Akon, underscores 50's continued thug-hood with a lethal hook, and "Follow My Lead," with the smoothie Robin Thicke, is a finger-popper worth 100 plays for its sly mood alone. May the best rapper, if there is one, keep rapping. --Tammy La Gorce

Product Description

Curtis is the third album from hip hop heavyweight 50 Curtis Jackson Cent. Well crafted beats combined with 50s trademark tales of street life and celebrity makes this an interesting and accomplished album. Guest stars include Akon, Eminem, Timbaland, Mary J Blige and Justin Timberlake who features on the single Ayo Technology.

1.0 out of 5 stars Damn 50....Why September 11, 2007
Format:Audio CD
It was extremely hard form me to write this review here for 50's album. I used to be a huge fan of Shady/Aftermath and the music they put out, so when 50 Cent emerged on the scene in 2003 (the Shady/Aftermath 50, not the underground 50) I bought into all the hype. I thought "Get Rich or Die Tryin'" was an amazing debut(mainstream) album . Lyrically he wasnt even close to the 3 King's (Talib, Jayz,Nas) but he at least had songs that tried to talk about something.. After the success of his first album "Mainstream 50 Cent" took over...everything. From making Childrens books and Video Games, to Movies and Clothing Lines.. I have no problem with a man making money, but it seems the more money he has made, the progressively worse his music has become. This latest album has really turned me off to the Shady/Aftermath /Interscope . No longer will I buy albums from their aritst prior listening to it. Now to the Album..

The production on this album far exceeds "The Massacre" the beats are pretty decent, with AYO Technology being the most complex and easy to vibe to. Unfortunately thats about the only positive thing I can say about this album. The Lyrics are simple horrendous, what can only be described as nursery rhymes.. with this album released I'm seriously waiting on 50 cent to make a song about "The Itsey Bitsey Spider" or something along that nature. I'm sure this album will be commercially successful, 50 Cent is a media Juggernaut(Sold over 2 Million copies of the Massacre in INDIA alone) and it would only be by a miracle that Kanye West would even come close to outselling him. His primary audience suburban "White America" will by this album in the boatloads..My question is why? What happened to socially conscious rap/hip hop being mainstream.

1.0 out of 5 stars Severely Lacking October 15, 2007
By Coffy6
Format:Audio CD
I don't know why 50 thought he could challenge Kanye and win. This CD lacks originality and substance. Same old recycled beats...same old recycled rhymes...same old rah rah shoot em up fake gangsta bull****. My thirteen year old nephew can make a better demo than this. I think the main problem is the collaborations...Timberlake, Timbaland, Robin Thicke???? Last time I checked two of those three couldn't even sing. But anyway, Akon's presence on I'll Still Kill was the only decent part of this mess. So, is this retirement thing still a go? I sure hope he was serious, because I don't know how many more of his boring tracks we can stand to hear.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing - Overall pathetic album. September 11, 2007
By Ace
Format:Audio CD
I'm sorry 50. I love your radio show and most of your unreleased songs and mixtapes. GRODT is one of my favorite hip hop cd's ever. Please don't think I'm a hater. This cd, is absolutely trash, garbage. I really can't remember the last time I listened to a new cd and felt like I was robbed.. and I have actually BEEN ROBBED before.

No doubt there are a few good tracks on here, but overall, we get the point. You don't care too much anymore about creative or interesting lyrics. You go by your formula of killing, selling drugs, one nighters, making money, and repeat 17x.

Your song 'all of me' has mary signing a sick hook but your verses don't revolve around giving all of yourself or a girl giving all of herself to you. Most of it is junk.

Your song 'fully loaded clip' isn't really about a clip.

Your love song with robin thicke isn't really about love either.

And your song 'man down' is half-censored. Really what's the point of even releasing that on a cd with parental advisory sticker?

It wasn't too long ago that you were calling people out on wax for being sensitive and all about love, singing love songs and ballads. Well not only have you completely done a 180 on that but now you're even making young buck sing hooks like on 'Fire'?

This cd is sorry, and not only do I feel sorry for myself for sitting through this cd enough times to realize how it will never grow on me, but I feel sorry for all the little kids giving this cd 5 stars and not realizing how your business model is to find a formula that works and repeat, instead of offering the world a piece of creativity like we know you're capable of. You have enough money, you can buy everything I own x1000, and I live a very happy life. Please go back to just making hot ish and don't worry about beating kanye on opening day, which you're not even coming close to because of the complete wackness which is 'Curtis'.

1.0 out of 5 stars 50 Cent is the new Pierre Delacroix September 20, 2007
By R. Reid
Format:Audio CD
See, he actually hates rap, or at least the direction hip-hop has taken. And so, like Pierre Delacroix of "Bamboozled" he decides to create some of the most uninspired, unoriginal crap, release it and watch his fans revolt and demand originality and quality in their hip-hop. But, to his dismay, the people love it! Love it more than anything! Millions and millions buy it! Oh the horror! "What have I done?", 50 says.

"I know what I'll do", he reasons,"I'll make my next album even crappier. I'll put even less effort into the next album, that'll kill hip-hop as we know it for sure!"

This, of course, is a re-enactment of actual events that may or may not have actually occurred. Yet it seems to be the only real explanation for "Curtis".

What a horrible album.

Just to show I'm not a complete grouch.

Man Down, I Get Money, Mobin on Up and Amusement Park all have really good beats. Real good. The problem is that 50's monotone flow and inane lyrics actually detract from the song. He messes them up. Left me wanted to hear what some real MC's would do with them.

Seriously, how many songs, how many albums can you listen to the same two themes. Either it's, "I'll fill you with lead, I'll kill you dead", or it's "Ho, get in my car so I can make you a star". What? "Ayo Technology?"
What? "Ayo Technology" sounds like a tenth-rate ripoff of what was a third-rate song(Jay-Z's "Anything", from "Kingdom Come")

I actually feel like my quality of life is not as good after listening to this album.

Yea they censored it because 50 is talking about the police and obviously bashing them so interscope censored it out to prevent any major issues with that.
