Biography

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

He’s been shot nine times. Incarcerated. And stabbed up and down. And that’s only what’s happened on 50 Cent’s down time. Hands down, 50 Cent is the biggest buzz emcee since Eminem (who just happens to be his label CEO), and Get Rich also features Dr. Dre on production, so it’s a can’t-miss record, right? Well, mostly. Get Rich is not filled with midtempo, radio-friendly numbers like "Wanksta," his thinly veiled Ja Rule dis first heard on the 8 Mile soundtrack. Instead, Cent brings the heat, not heater. He sheds his inner thug on "21 Questions," featuring G-funk crooner Nate Dogg showing some semblance of respect to the hotties, and then reverts right back to his thug persona on "In da Club," where he boasts "I’m into having sex, I ain’t into making love." There’s no "How to Rob, Pt. 2" here, although "Many Men" comes close, as he addresses some of the haters who may not fully get why he’s now rap’s big cheese. Surprisingly, the two Eminem-produced joints--"Patiently Waiting" (which thematically is very much like Em’s "Lose Yourself"), and "Don’t Push Me"--almost rival the beats supplied by Dre. Then again, it seems his most well-known cuts ("High All the Time" and "Wanksta," for example) are actually some of the weakest of the lot. Sure, Get Rich could never have lived up to the hype, it’s nowhere near Biggie's Ready to Die or Nas's Illmatic, but there's no fast-forward material here, a near miracle in these times. --Dalton Higgins

Customer Reviews

A word of warning to those who don't like violent music; this is NOT an album for you.
Michael Crane
I got this album on the first day it came out, poped it in my CD player and ..., all the songs were good.
Bizzy B
I can't really hate 50 Cent, because he dissed Ja Rule, which made him stop making more irritating music.

From the clanging of change in the ominous introductory track to the final fade of the third bonus track, 50 Cent's major label debut has certainly lived up to its gargantuan hype. Here's a quick review for each track on the album.
1.) Intro - (N/A)
2.) What Up Gangsta (10/10) - An excellent song to start off the album with. Catchy hook, well-produced beat. Possible future single.
3.) Patiently Waiting (8/10) - A quality song featuring Eminem, who comes through with a rather tight verse.
4.) Many Men (Wish Death) (9.5/10) - Another amazing hook and beat. One of the best songs on the album.
5.) In Da Club (8/10) - Second single off the cd. Better than "Wanksta," but not by much.
6.) High All The Time (9/10) - One of the best ode's to marijuana in many a year. Twirl your green up for this joint.
7.) Heat (8/10) - Another good song.
8.) If I Can't (7/10) - Decent song, 50's done better.
9.) Blood Hound (10/10) - Oh man...... I can listen to this song all night. Instant classic.
10.) Back Down (10/10) WHAT?! TWO CLASSICS IN A ROW?!?!?! Anyone who insults Ja Rule this maliciously deserves respect in my book. Add in stinging lyrics and a hardcore beat, and you get Back Down.
11.) P.I.M.P. (7.5/10) - Misogynistic as hell, but any and every pimp can ride out to this one.
12.) Like My Style (8/10) - A hot song. Would've scored higher, but the track didn't showcase Tony Yayo's talent as it should have.
13.) Poor Lil Rich (9.5/10) - An older track given a facelift by amazing new production. Killer beat.
14.) 21 Questions (8/10) - Nate Dogg blessed this track. Good song.
15.) Don't Push Me (10/10) - Wow..... Another one of my favorites.

I remember back when this album came out, everybody loved it. I mean, even the rockers liked a few songs on this album. But then, after about a year and a half of GRODT being out, every started sippin on the G Unit haterade, and all the sudden 50 Cent is hated by many people. I checked on this cd on Amazon back when about 750 reviews were written, and it had 5 stars! Now, after 50's Massacre, people decide that they don't like GRODT either (Only 3.5 stars), after selling 11 million records. You can say what you want about The Massacre, but anybody who knows what their talking about knows that GRODT is a very hot album and is an example of how good a rapper 50 was during his underground stage, back when he was the best underground rapper alive. (If you haven't heard his mixtapes, you should, they are great, 50's flow is explosive and fast). This was 50 before the haterade, and he really exploits his talents on this cd. Most of the songs on here are very gritty, gangsta, and gutter, the way 50 should have it, not pop records. His lyrics are actually pretty good (the best you can get from a Jamaica Queens gangster) and like I said his flow is much better than in the Massacre. The beats are the biggest thing on the album though, Dr Dre put out his best beats for 50, and anybody who appreciates rap music will love the beats on this album, they are crazy good! Some of the best songs, other than the singles, because you've probably heard a few of them before are Patiently Waiting, Many Men, High All the Time, If I Can't, and Back Down. It's a shame I had to spend half of the review explaining why 50 had only 3.5 stars, but just remember, those are just Gunit hater freaks giving it 1 star and only writng 2 lines just to be idiots. Don't get me wrong, 50 has plenty of fans, but some jealous ones had to envy.Read more ›

At first I was skeptical about 50's debut, I had heard "Wanksta"
and "In Da Club" and production wise it doesn't get better, however lyrically it seemed like there was little to no substance rather than the usual sex, drugs and guns theme most Rappers have today. That's cool and I'm straight with it, but to spend 19 bucks on a CD, for me atleast it have to be deeper than that. I kept hearing how great it was, so I broke down and copped it. I put it in and the first track was already bumpin (althought the intro was useless), then the CD progressed and Eminem appeared and as it went on he told about his life, his struggles and his time in the hospital after being shot several times. All in all this album is solid and deserves 5 stars, and 5 mics in "The Source" no less, but Benzino will cheat him out of that. The only downsides were poorly laced vocals by Nate Dogg on "21 Questions" and the three bonus tracks have already been released for over a year atleast. In my opinion the best songs are "Many Men (Death Wish)", "Back Down" and "Patiently Waiting" featuring Eminem. This is definaley a must have for any Dr. Dre/Eminem production fans, and any hip hop fan for the most part. The first time you hear it, it's hot.
Other must haves:
Xzibit: Man Vs. Machine
Trick Daddy: Thug Holiday
2Pac: Better Dayz
Jay-Z: Blueprint 2
Busta Rhymes: It Aint Safe No More

Hey... I wrote this review when I didn't have an account, and I just wanted to put it in. Read It!
----------------------------------------------------------------

Ok, there has always been a lot of hype around 50 cent, ever since he dropped How To Rob. That song was hott. Then he got shot and the cd was pulled from shelves and 50 was dropped from Columbia records. Now fastforward to 2003. 50 Cent releases a near classic album called Get Rich or Die Tryin'. This cd is amazing, but then again how couldn't he make an amazing cd with a team like Eminem and Dr. Dre behind you? Plus he had G Unit, a group that has mostly proven themselves to be good rappers. Anyway, the album starts off appropriatly enough, with what sounds like a coin hitting the ground. Then it goes into the tense and awesome What Up Gangsta.

2. What Up Gangsta: This song is absolutley amazing. It is one of the best songs on the whole album and it starts off the album perfectly. 10/10.

3. Patiently Waiting: Another amazing track! I love this song, and Em's verse is amazing. He spits some great lines over a beat that he produced, and it is also an awesome beat. 10/10.

4. Many Men (Wish Death): I love this song. 50 Spits some good lyrics and the beat is amazing. This is one of the best on the album. 10/10.

5. In Da Club: You've all heard it and you all love it. It is a great song with a great Dr. Dre produced beat. This song is really made for the clubs and is just awesome. 10/10.

6. High All The Time: This song is the 5 straight amazing song on the album. The beat is cool but the lyrics are great. It is funny (IMO) and interesting to hear him rap about... well... being high all the time. 10/10.

Rap Sucks (especially 50 Cent)
1). This is nothing but ignorant. To call rap terrible due to everything that has happened due to MTV and 50 is terrible when there are a ton of other rappers out here that actually have talent.
2). Don't recommend us so-called "metal" bands to a community that likes hip-hop. In fact,... Read More
