Monotone Tone: Bringing Me Down

by Eli Kaul on 7/3/2003

I really dig his lyrics and the production is great, but after the first few times you listen to him that monotone style he raps in gets really annoying. Leaving out In Da Club, (track 5), which is the only song on the album that really showcases his unique style. Another small problem I had was the fact that most of the songs production is the same. All in all I give it a four, all it needs is better variety, all it needs for a five is better variety in the rapping and the production. Read More

With its inclusion on the mega-successful 8 MILE soundtrack, 50 Cent's "Wanksta" blew up in late 2002, calling out the hypocrisies of wannabe gangstas who boast of criminal exploits that exist only in their imaginations. If anyone has the right to speak it's 50 Cent; he made his mark in the streets (not to mention newspapers) long before Eminem inked the Queens rapper to his Shady Records. In between the occasional single and album, 50 Cent has been involved in many notorious hip-hop confrontations. The too-aptly titled GET RICH OR DIE TRYIN' (which includes "Wanksta") introduces his brash, talk-it-like-he-walks-it rap style to the world at large.
50 Cent blithely cites the Bible in "Many Men (Wish Death)" while crowing about the rival who famously shot him in 2000 only to be shot himself ("cuz he got hit like I got hit and he ain't...breathin'"). From that slice of ultra-reality, he shifts to the dance-pop anthem "In Da Club." Throughout GET RICH OR DIE TRYIN', 50 Cent presents a strikingly original, raw worldview, even by the well-traveled genre's bleak and violent standards.
Artist Overview
50 Cent endured many obstacles during his young yet remarkably dramatic life before becoming one of the most discussed figures in rap. He lived the things that most rappers just write about, including drugs, crime, imprisonment, stabbings, and most infamously of all, shootings. But most importantly, 50 Cent may have fit the mold of a prototypical hardcore rapper, but he could also craft a catchy hook. As a result, his music has crossed over to the pop market, appealing to both those who like his roughneck posturing and rags-to-riches story as well as those who like his knack for churning out singalong club tracks. ~ Jason Birchmeier

Blender Even at their most nihilistic, these 16 songs resonate melodically, like Eminem's most haunting material.
