Product Description

50 Cent returns with his third major-label album, CURTIS. CURTIS features production by Dr. Dre, Eminem, Kanye West, Akon and more. The album also features the single "Straight to the Bank" and "Amusement Park". Also includes the smash hit tracks "Ayo Technology" featuring Justin Timberlake and Timbaland, and the street banger "I Get Money," which is tearing up clubs nation wide.

Amazon.com

If you believe everything you hear, Curtis is 50 Cent's bid to be hip-hop king--the rumor goes that he issued it the same day Kanye West released his Graduation CD to spawn a sales race and thus, a) establish superiority, or b) retire with his head hung low. But here's what might not have occurred to 50: Given enough talent and a fully loaded speed-dial--the kind that can raise Timbaland, Akon, Dr. Dre, Mary J. Blige, and Eminem faster than the sickest rapper can stitch together a verse--it's possible for two diabolically good discs to drop the same day. Forgetting the Kanye competition for a moment, Curtis might come up short in a race with its creator's other albums--the rawness and reach of Get Rich Or Die Tryin' isn't here. But certain cultural moments (who would refute that the release Get Rich… was one?) can't be replicated, and what Curtis lacks in credible grit, it more than makes up for in finesse. Never let it be said that you can't be fierce and flow at the same time: "I Get Money" glides back to the old school in sound--there's a house party happening behind this track--but sends out a modern message, "I'll Still Kill," with Akon, underscores 50's continued thug-hood with a lethal hook, and "Follow My Lead," with the smoothie Robin Thicke, is a finger-popper worth 100 plays for its sly mood alone. May the best rapper, if there is one, keep rapping. --Tammy La Gorce

It was extremely hard form me to write this review here for 50's album. I used to be a huge fan of Shady/Aftermath and the music they put out, so when 50 Cent emerged on the scene in 2003 (the Shady/Aftermath 50, not the underground 50) I bought into all the hype. I thought "Get Rich or Die Tryin'" was an amazing debut(mainstream) album . Lyrically he wasnt even close to the 3 King's (Talib, Jayz,Nas) but he at least had songs that tried to talk about something.. After the success of his first album "Mainstream 50 Cent" took over...everything. From making Childrens books and Video Games, to Movies and Clothing Lines.. I have no problem with a man making money, but it seems the more money he has made, the progressively worse his music has become. This latest album has really turned me off to the Shady/Aftermath /Interscope . No longer will I buy albums from their aritst prior listening to it. Now to the Album..

The production on this album far exceeds "The Massacre" the beats are pretty decent, with AYO Technology being the most complex and easy to vibe to. Unfortunately thats about the only positive thing I can say about this album. The Lyrics are simple horrendous, what can only be described as nursery rhymes.. with this album released I'm seriously waiting on 50 cent to make a song about "The Itsey Bitsey Spider" or something along that nature. I'm sure this album will be commercially successful, 50 Cent is a media Juggernaut(Sold over 2 Million copies of the Massacre in INDIA alone) and it would only be by a miracle that Kanye West would even come close to outselling him. His primary audience suburban "White America" will by this album in the boatloads..My question is why? What happened to socially conscious rap/hip hop being mainstream.

I don't know why 50 thought he could challenge Kanye and win. This CD lacks originality and substance. Same old recycled beats...same old recycled rhymes...same old rah rah shoot em up fake gangsta bull****. My thirteen year old nephew can make a better demo than this. I think the main problem is the collaborations...Timberlake, Timbaland, Robin Thicke???? Last time I checked two of those three couldn't even sing. But anyway, Akon's presence on I'll Still Kill was the only decent part of this mess. So, is this retirement thing still a go? I sure hope he was serious, because I don't know how many more of his boring tracks we can stand to hear.

See, he actually hates rap, or at least the direction hip-hop has taken. And so, like Pierre Delacroix of "Bamboozled" he decides to create some of the most uninspired, unoriginal crap, release it and watch his fans revolt and demand originality and quality in their hip-hop. But, to his dismay, the people love it! Love it more than anything! Millions and millions buy it! Oh the horror! "What have I done?", 50 says.

"I know what I'll do", he reasons,"I'll make my next album even crappier. I'll put even less effort into the next album, that'll kill hip-hop as we know it for sure!"

This, of course, is a re-enactment of actual events that may or may not have actually occurred. Yet it seems to be the only real explanation for "Curtis".

What a horrible album.

Just to show I'm not a complete grouch.

Man Down, I Get Money, Mobin on Up and Amusement Park all have really good beats. Real good. The problem is that 50's monotone flow and inane lyrics actually detract from the song. He messes them up. Left me wanted to hear what some real MC's would do with them.

Seriously, how many songs, how many albums can you listen to the same two themes. Either it's, "I'll fill you with lead, I'll kill you dead", or it's "Ho, get in my car so I can make you a star". What? "Ayo Technology?"
What? "Ayo Technology" sounds like a tenth-rate ripoff of what was a third-rate song(Jay-Z's "Anything", from "Kingdom Come")

I actually feel like my quality of life is not as good after listening to this album.

To the hip-hop purists: remember back in the late nineties when one of your buddies slipped you a mix tape featuring a rapper who mixed wit (How to Rob) with grit (Heat) and filled the void left by the deaths Biggie and Pac?

To the fourteen year old white girls: Remember when the really buff guy that the uber-cute Eminem found who thankfully always walked around without his shirt (except for when he wore his bulletproof vest, but that just upped the bad boy quota), who some was always played in the club, and by club I mean the middle school dance?

And there are the two careers of 50 Cent and it is almost appropriate to write separate reviews for the two different groups of music listeners. But I won't because I'm lazy. But for the rap purists they probably have already given up on 50 after openly courting the suburban females on The Massacre. But 50 was quick to learn just how fickle the teenage girl is (remember O-Town? no? um, never mind) when the soundtrack to Get Rich or Die Trying barely sold a million copies after his first two major label album sold thirteen million combined. And it did not help that Lily Allen was able to take the unlistenable Window Shopper and flip into something extremely catchy.

50, knowing he could never court back the hip-hop purist, completes his sell out on Curtis by bringing in the likes of Justin Timberlake (Ayo Technology), the chick from the Pussycat Dolls (who adds her vocal scratches Fire), and what album these days wouldn't be complete without Akon. But it is laughable heard a dude that looks like Starvin Marvin sing about gang warfare on I Still Kill.

And 50 is quick to readily admit he's has sold out and flaunt it on songs like I Get Money and Straight to the Bank.
