First of all I am sorry for posting about 50 Cent, so let me first say this: I do believe fiddy is a good rapper, and I have high expectations for his upcoming album. Therefore, I am going to write a review of the singles "Straight To The Bank" and "Amusement Park."
After taking a few years off to work on his movie career 50 Cent is back, and still as hard-core as ever. 50 Cent's new album is entitled Curtis, his real first name (real gansta' if you ask me). One can already pre-order the album, which is set to release June 26th. Curtis will surely be a success on the Clear Chanel charts, but the question is if Curtis will actually contain decent rap. It is rumored to have a "souly" sound, which will help make this an excellent album. It already has an A-list group of celebrity appearances; Eminem will be featured on the track "Peep Show," and Dr. Dre produced the single, just to name a few.
The first released single is entitled "Straight To The Bank." This track, produced by Ty Fife and Dr. Dre, has an excellent beat. The song starts off sounding like another "Candy Shop," but it rapidly turns into an ode to the classics (I think it sounds like a Biggie beat). The song is about money, but don't start bantering on how rappers only talk about money and ho's; 50 Cent said in an interview "Straight To The Bank" is the only song about money. So look forward to 17 songs about Ho's! Overall "Straight To The Bank" is a sure fire chart topper, and a well rounded song.
The second single "Amusement Park" is not quite as good as the previously stated. "Amusement Park" sort of makes me queezy, much like an actual amusement park. The beat is really choppy, and sounds unfinished. Besides that problem, the song is a real jem!
