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

Product Description


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

5.0 out of 5 stars The Beginning of a new Era...... February 6, 2003
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 50 At His Best! January 14, 2006
Format:Audio CD
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 ›

5.0 out of 5 stars 50 Cent gets my two cents... February 7, 2003
By Big Ice
Format:Audio CD
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

4.0 out of 5 stars Too hyped up!!!!! September 26, 2005
By Werty
Format:Audio CD
1. Intro- Good, simple intro
2. What Up Gangsta?- This song is tight, 50 rips it!
3. Patiently Waiting- Eminem wasted his time on 50 cent! Eminem made a tight beat and spit a tight verse and 50 brings nothing!
4. Many Men(Wish Death)- Here's a good track. 50 talks about how people want to kill him.
5. In Da Club- Now even though it was played out, it is still a very good club song.
6. High All the Time- Another tight beat wasted, this is a stupid song.
7. Heat- I love the skit at the beginning. The lyrics are okay, but it the beat that really makes the song.
8. If I Can't- This should have been the 1st single. Good beat, good words.
9. Blood Hound- I really don't like this song, the beat is annoying, the words are annoying, and the dog's bark is annoying.
10. Back Down- 50 disses Ja Rule, the imatation of Ja's mom at the end is funny.
11. P.I.M.P.- Skip.
12. Like My Style- Skip.
13. Poor Lil Rich- Skip.
14. 21 Questions- Finally, I was getting ready to end this review!
50 spits nice lyrics basically, asking questions that if he wasn't successful would a girl still go out with him.
15. Don't Push Me- Finally a tight song! 50, Eminem, and even Lloyd Banks kill this song.
16. Gotta Make it Heaven- You gotta feel this song, 50 tries his best to make it a good song.
17. Wanksta- 50 actually made this song before. Good beat and lyrics.
18. U Not Like Me- I didn't 50 could kill an entire song like this before.
19. Life on the Line- 50 kill this one too.

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
