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!

    50 fell off, straight to the bank is such a short song, doesn’t even have as much bars as his past work

    he really half assed on these songs, if you think they are good, you are truely a 50 fan, i am a 50 fan, and I can tell he really stopped trying, but i believe his next album, will be hard as ever

    These songs are just a piece of junk, 5-0 is another MC Hammer without the parachute pants, he’s a disgrace and talentless, thank god I’m planning to buy Hip-Hop is dead, Nas is the real truth.

    there is no rumor about a “souly sounding cd” thats true, but its not this upcoming cd. its an entirely different cd titled “before i self destruct” which will be released later this year or 2008

  • What Afi K. James?

    if you were planning on buying hip hop is dead, why havent you bought it already? The joint came out in december…its may.

  • Big L

    hate all u want but plz stop tlkin sh!t
    fiffty has bin lazy wit it but da dude aint talentless go get “Power Of The Doller”

  • Game Over

    Every time you think 50 isn’t living up to your expectations, just go back and listen to “What up Gangsta?” or “Heat” and believe me you will fall in love with 50 all over again. If you can listen to those songs and not be pumped up for whatever then you need to check your pulse because you most likely already have 1 foot in the grave. Curtis will be hot, can’t wait for the come and go track. Not really feeling the Havoc produced “Fully Loaded Clip”. Lyrics are on point but the beat just isn’t 50ish. Other than that I can’t complain.

    Has the reviewer actually listened to the tracks? 50 should stick to selling stuff…water, tracksuits and all that, coz it’s pretty clear he can’t rap. Tired beats.
