Well I first introduced myself with 50 Cent, when I heard "How to Rob" and my thoughts on that song was that this guy has the biggest nuts in the game. That was really the only thing I had heard from the self proclaimed "Brooklyn Bad Guy," until the whole recent 50 Cent mania. I really didn't know what to expect on this album accept for his flows on the 8 mile soundtrack, but boy I was in for a suprise.
When I left Target with the album I was really thinkin why did I buy this cd, then when I was bumpin that shit in my car, I was tottally mesmerzied (no pun intended). Every song was great and had me anticapating the next song.
1. Intro- Was kinda stupid and simple with the 50 cents banging on a table.
2. What Up Gangsta- The beat was sick as hell courstey of Dr Dre and I give props to 50 for spitting out "Blood" and "Cuz" in this song.
3. Patiently Waiting- This is a classic song. I can't get sick of or play out. Eminem's verse is just classic!
4. Many Men( Wish Death)- Personally I love this track. I feel like this makes this album a balanced album and has like a Pac feel to it.
5. In Da Club- This track is gettin on my nerves. It's gettin so played out. Besides that, the song is very good and the beat is one of the best on the album.
6. High All The Time- This track is a great song and makes me wanna get high on the spot. It's just a great laid back and relaxing song.
7. Heat- This song talks about the street life that 50 has lived and its gangsta as hell. The beat kinda fucks it up, too many gun shots.
8. If I Cant- This is a good song. It makes you feel uplifted and good.
9. BloodHound- This is one of the superb songs on the album.
10. BackDown- This is a diss track. 50 takes more shots at Ja Rule, Irv Gotti and whole Murder Inc camp.
11. P.I.M.P.- This songs is a cool mackin' song with a little Miami feel to it. This is another Dr Dre perfected beat.
12. Like my Style- I don't really like this song. It's a very boring song in my opinion.
13. Poor Lil Rich- Once again one of the bad tracks on the album.
14. 21 Questions- This song features Nate Dogg. At first, I wasn't feelin it. But this track tends to grow on you.
15. Dont Push Me- This song has Lloyd Banks and Eminem in it. To me this is track has good flow and doesn't lose the listeners interest.
16. Gotta Make It To Heaven- This song is one of my favorites. I love the wordplay on this song.
17. Wanksta- This song is another diss towards Ja Rule. Ilove this song, but once again it is one of 50's play out songs.
18. U Not Like Me- I like this song. This kinda has the vibe of many men...great word arrangement again.
19.Life's On The Line- This is one of the hardest songs on this album and the G Unit disses Murder Inc once again.
Overall I gotta say that is a classic album and one of the best albums in the last 5 years. My Rating: 9 Out Of 10.
