Hes been shot nine times. Incarcerated. And stabbed up and down. And thats only whats happened on 50 Cents 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 its a cant-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 "Im into having sex, I aint into making love." Theres 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 hes now raps big cheese. Surprisingly, the two Eminem-produced joints--"Patiently Waiting" (which thematically is very much like Ems "Lose Yourself"), and "Dont 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, its 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

On "Intro" there is no rapping or talking, all we hear is a coin drop, following that we go into the next track produced by Rob "Reef" Tewlow, "What Up Gangsta" and the beat is sick especially when it first comes on, The good doctor gave fif a hit with "In da Club", you couldn't go anywhere without hearing the song or somebody just rapping the lyrics "Go shorty, it's your birthday/ We gonna party like it's your birthday!" The other singles were "21 Questions" (featuring Nate Dogg), its one of those would you be down for if I didn't have this type of song. "Many Men (Wish Death)" is the best song on here. On "Back Down", he also throws more shots on "Heat" the Dr. Dre's beat is simple, it has a constant guncok sound. Em shows up twice, on "Patiently Waiting" where he easily outshines Curtis and "Don't Push Me", also featuring Lloyd Banks. On the latter Em is rapping about the same stuff as 50 but he doesn't get called out for it? Double standard? But on another note it was a dope track. There are some missteps on here though "Blood Hound" (featuring Young Buck) was just too boring for me, the pimping anthem "P.I.M.P." cant even be saved by his catchy hook. His braggadocios raps brings the down the album as well, at least switch it up sometimes! We know you got 9 times, we know you went from noting to something tell us something we don't know. As for the bonus tracks "Wanksta" took him to another level, it appeared on the G-Unit mixtape then the 8Mile sdtk, "U Not Like Me" and "Life's on the Line" were out before he was even signed. Overall I think 50 dropped a classic album and lets not try to rewrite history, this was biggest album of 2003. If you do buy it I suggest getting a used one for 5 dollars or less. I heard all 50s album and trust me this is the one worth checking out besides Power Of The Dollar.
From front to back, you really do not need to skip a track. Yes, the lyrical substance on this album and on other albums after lack. But 50's ear for instrumentals makes up for any nonsense he's spewing on the track. The vibes of Many Men (Wish Death), In da Club, Heat, P.I.M.P., 21 Questions, and Wanksta are all classics. Features on the album are not overdone.
In my opinion, one of the top three hip-hop albums of all time.
