Customer Reviews

This is possibly one of the best rap albums I have ever heard.
Ox Hermann
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
A word of warning to those who don't like violent music; this is NOT an album for you.

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 ›

50 Cent has gained an extreme amount of media attention and album promotion since he signed with Shady/Aftermath records. However, the quality of this album does not match the overwhelming amount of attention he has been recieving. The entire album is filled with mediocre lyrics and a poor attempt at catchy melodies/hooks. Songs such as "In Da Club" and "P.I.M.P," have pretty good production but really fail at catching my attention lyrically. Other songs like, "Many Men," are mediocre hardcore rap style tracks, where 50 constantly makes gun and violent references. Also,it is quite a turn off when you hear 50 Cent constantly mention the fact that he has been shot nine times. It's as if 50 is selling his image(which is in question right now, after many hip hop magazines have exposed his true background) instead of focusing on producing good quality rap music. The bottom line is that this album lacks substance. While it has some good production, it lacks strong lyrical content. 50 cent is pretty much an average rapper with very little creativity and absolutely no versatility. Another dissapointment is the fact that he spends too much time taking shots at Ja Rule. I understand that they are currently enemies, but 50 seems to do the exact same things that he is criticizing Ja Rule for doing. I am no Ja Rule fan, but I think that 50 should lay off this pointless battle. Basically, 50 Cent has a strong support group from Dr. Dre and Eminem, but he fails to match their success at putting out a good quality album. This album is a perfect example of how a large majority of mainstream rap has become unoriginal and monotonous. If you have been a long time hip hop/rap fan, such as myself, then you will not enjoy this album.Read more ›
