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 ›

There is no other way to describe my feeling that 50 and his incorherent babble sell millions of albums while acts like Tribe Called Quest could never break big.....

This is garbage. I wish he would of died trying because that story would make him more "legendary" than his feeble attempts at boasting himself. "Ooooohhh you got shot" Big deal. Any dumbass can get shot. Don't make you special. As a matter of fact it is depressing when people compare him to the likes of the revolutionary 2pac. No where near the power of 2Pac. This isn't true hip hop in the sense that it is all about "the club" and constantly gett'n crunk with dumb ho's. That ain't real life. That isn't the struggle of making it. That is already made pure and simple. This album and the G-Unit album "Beg for Mercy" (Trust me Banks, 50 and that cash-money floozie, I am begging for mercy because it is hard to turn on the T.V and not hear your crap brand of Hip Pop) are just club songs. That's it. No truth, no skill and tinkerbell-ass beats. Enjoy it and consume it America. You love this crap.

50 Cent's debut album "Get Rich or Die Tryin" brings nothing new to hip-hop thats hasnt already been used over and over again. This album drops some scarce beats throughout, but 50 Cent's errant attempts at laying anything down lyrically fail miserably through an album that wholly lacks substance, innovation, and cleverness. 50 Cent's recent popularity is a sad testament as to what can pass as hip-hop in an industry that regards true talent as an afterthought. Essentually, "Get Rich or Die Tryin" is another lame CD on a long list of recent pop-rap that plays off all the same cliches in mainstream hip-hop that have generally fueled its demise. If you want to listen to hip-hop that truely displays substance and character, listen to Blackstar, Mos Def, Common, Talib Kweli, Jurassic 5, and anything by the Roots.
