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

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 ›

3.0 out of 5 stars A Lil Bit Overhyped...but still packs the "Heat"... March 5, 2003
Format:Audio CD
The moment 50 broke into the scene with "Wanksta" (Ja Rule Diss). He immediately became the "next big thing"...then news broke out that his album would be dropping. February then came, and the album was released.
The question is: Should We Believe The Hype?
Well, you should and you shouldn't. 50 Cent has excellant production, but he has failed to have done anything ground breaking or new. Now, don't get me wrong, i COMPLETELY respect how he got into the game, but most of the subjects he talks about have already been done. Also, they're are many tracks that weren't added to the album. Where was "The Realest" & "In The Hood" ? They were high quality, yet i don't find them anywhere else except on bootleg cds
But, Don't worry, there are some good tracks. "Many Men" is a song about life. 50 Cent isn't everybody's best friend, and he knows it. It's your basic "i'll get you before you get me" scanario. "In Da Club", although is played out, talks about...well...being in the club. Its a track of 50 Boasting of what he has, what he does, and what he can do. "If I Can't" is a track of "i could do it better than you can"...nothing new, although the beat is hot! "What Up Gangsta" is like a lil anthem, short but good. "Wanksta", one of 3 bonus tracks, is the famous (but not known throughly) as the Ja Rule Diss. Its catchy i admit that, but doesn't show the full potential of 50 Cent. "21 Question" is probably one of the better & decent tracks...lyric-wise. Its a change from the "i'm better than you" personna since it talks about fame & love. "Blood Hound" has a nice flow, nice rhymes, nice beat, one of the better songs...
With the good, comes the bad. "Patiently Waiting" is one of the most overhyped tracks. Just because Eminem's name is near "featuring" doesn't guarentee it as a classic.

Topic From this Discussion
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
