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

50 Cent is now a full two dollars, according to pop culture exchange rates. His sheer influence on music charts, and thugs hearts, changed things. So why then on Massacre is the 'hood drama that one would think he'd want to leave behind even more front-and-center than on Get Rich or Die Tryin'? It's hard to say, but 50's developed a questionable gun fetish here. With firearms plastered all over the liner notes, and throughout most of his lyrics--on "In My Hood" he retorts "…I don't go nowhere without my strap"--apparently his nouveau rich status has only accelerated the number of enemies he's accumulated. On "I'm Supposed to Die Tonight" he even awkwardly forecasts Notorious B.I.G.-like, Tupac-ian rap game death scenarios. "Piggy Bank," a virtual diss fest further cements his "How to Rob" persona as Nas and Fat Joe get the lyrical smack down; so does A-list actor Vivica Fox ("Get In My Car") for even daring to consider their rendezvous to be anything more than a fling. Despite beat contributions from Aftermath hombres (Eminem, Dr. Dre), some of the better beats come courtesy of lesser-known beatsmiths like Disco D ("Ski Mask Way") and the always consistent Hi-Tek, whose "Ryder Music" is a sick concoction of keys and haunting vocals. At 22 tracks (with no inane interludes), it's worth the loot, but it doesn't cover up 50's artistic regression since Get Rich. --Dalton Higgins

Aside from a couple of shining moments, you're crazy if you've ever thought 50 was lyrically that good. His success is mainly due to his style/swagger, stellar beats, and undeniable hooks. Not like I'm trying to take anything away from him, but if you're expecting a whole lot of solid rhymes, let alone ones that don't involve guns & sex, 50 never has nor will be the place to go. He hasn't changed a whole lot in two years, but is he still doing it as good as he has?

"In My Hood" gets the album off to a solid start, it's a typical 50 Cent hood song and has a great beat by C. Styles & Bang Out. Overall it's good, but it's nothing special (although the Saxophone part that closes the track is real nice). "This Is 50" has a pretty grimy beat, but 50's drawl at the end of every line seems all too formulaic, taking a page right out of "Blood Hound" from "Get Rich...". It could easily grow on the listener though. Lyrically 50 copies his previous effort again with "I'm Supposed To Die Tonight" (aka "Many Men" Pt. II). That being said it's one of the better tracks on the album with Eminem's production being the perfect marriage for the 50's subject matter.
"Piggy Bank" is Massacre's diss track, where the clunky beat won't really draw you in as much as the venom he spits at Fat Joe, Jadakiss, Shyne, & Nas. To be honest this is not a big winner, the beat's not really that great but the big thing is while he disses these rappers he doesn't really say anything remotely harmful/embarrassing/clever/whatever. All this track is gonna do is make enemies & create some buzz, but he didn't have a single diss line that was memorable at all. This is a soft diss track at best, sorry no memorable "Back Down" on here.

Em produces and drops a verse for the great concept track "Gatman & Robbin".

2.0 out of 5 stars Okay kids; class is in session.... March 18, 2005
By CarCar
Format:Audio CD
Some of you people out there seem to be surprised by how weak 50's new album is. Let me explain to you all how this works. When 2pac died he had a lot of unreleased music that he recorded. What this tells me is that artists record music that they hold on to and wait till the right time to release. When 50's first album came out he had to bring the goods to build a fan base. As you know most albums have 3 or 4 good songs and the rest is just filler. If an artist put all his good songs on one album, then his next album would be complete garbage (a.k.a. filler). Its all about money/record sales. 50 knows that all of his fans/suckers will run down to Best Buy and grab his latest cd. So he'll give you a few singles to listen to on the radio 45 times a day to get you hyped. Then when his album drops its PAYDAY. You think he would put some more hot tracks out for the fans who MADE him a millionaire, but no. We have to wait till his next cd for 3 or 4 more good songs. I used to be a fan/sucker too. But I haven't bought a rap cd in 3 years because of this BS. Just download the songs you like best and save your money so that you can waste it on a crappy movie like Be Cool. CLASS DISMISSED

1.0 out of 5 stars Got Rich and Stopped Tryin March 8, 2005
By SK
Format:Audio CD
Let me start of by saying that Get Rich was one of the best albums of the past few years. Every track was a bomb waiting to drop. This album sounds like some dude that let fame and steriods go to his mellon. He takes no advice from Em when that is really the only person who he should be listening to.

Let's cover the dis-track Piggy Bank first (actually this may be the only one I need to cover). This is the worst dis track in the history of diss tracks. When you hear some of the underground stuff that Eminem has done where he devotes minutes upon minutes ruthlessly destroying everyone from Ja Rule, to Benzino, to Dialated, to Everlast you realize the lyrcial skill he has to be able to deconstruct artists until there is basically nothing left for them to reply to because they have been destroyed. On this 3+ minute track the only clear diss is to Jadakiss, (something to the effect of don't test me if you want to eat...or something weak like that). He should have never started that with such a week track..Actually if I was Jada, I would not waste my time replying to this schlock. If I was Ja Rule I would just sit back and laugh about what happens when muscle heads try to do something other than lift weights.

If you are still thinking of purchasing this...I would recommend R.U.L.E. At least R.U.L.E has New York on it which is tight. I think that the 100 guns and 100 clips need to be aimed at 50.

So, as I have said Piggy Bank is WEAK. Disco Inferno is OK and pretty much every other track is junk. Gatman and Robin the worst thing I have ever heard, if I was Em I would walk away fast from that one. The album is too loose and the only thing that works on it is the production.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not What It Was Hyped Up To Be March 3, 2005
Format:Audio CD
First off let me start by saying that I am a 50 cent fan. Since "Get Rich or Die Trying" dropped I have been feverishly anticipating his next LP. However "The Massacre" is nothing what I expected. The beats are really the only thing keeping this CD from being the worst album of the year. The whole "diss err body and they momma" thang is played out and his ABC rhymes are worse than ever. I knew that 50's negative attitude toward other artists was kinda shady but I always thought that him being talented would give him clout to do so, but that is no longer the case. COME ON 50!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Massacre is so fitting for a name
50 Cent was everywhere in 2005, which is what they said in 2003. A huge debut, huge clique, and the said clique members were charting on their own.

But it's 2013. Read more
