I’m sure you’ve seen and heard “Outlaw” other places but you haven’t gotten my take on 50 Cent’s new single. I like it. I like the beat, his flow and the originality. While everyone is going the way of house music, 50 is staying in his lane. Well more going back to his lane. I still haven’t forgiven dude for “Ayo, technology” The only problem I have is that he is not trying to relinquish this “hard” persona.
No I don’t believe the album is coming anytime soon. Other than the buzz that he has to build for a November release 50 is just too busy to record and promote an album at this stage of his life. The music keeps coming because the music is what makes him commercially relevant. Everyone knows his checks from other places are bigger…we do know that right?
After the break I have a open letter to 50. Read if you must.

You want to make some money? Invest in this company H & H imports Inc. Get yourself $1,000.00-borrow, steal, barter- start an etrade account and buy as many shares as you can. Sit back, wait a month then cash in. This stock bubbled 355% over the weekend. It probably won’t see gains like that in a month but that $1,000.00 will see a better rate of return than your standard savings account. You can’t afford to put it in a CD or an annuity so H&HL and various other penny stocks are your best bet. Salute to 50 Cent and letting us make some good ol’ USD. Now that’s SLEEK.
50 spoke about how he was introduced to MJ and what took place after his passing. Its good to see how artist view each others work and how they rate each other creatively.

Officially 50 Cent’s 4th album is a dud. 358,000 isn’t even gold but Curtis is a multi-platinum album seller. We can blame today’s economy and digital pirating but that still wouldn’t explain Eminem doing 1.7 off a less than mediocre album and Jay-z doing 1.5 with his 3rd installment of The Blueprint. All this is fact and unexplainable seeing that Before I Self Destruct was the better album of the three. Maybe it was the constant dissing. As mainstream music has moved into another direction since Get Rich or Die Tryin’ Curtis is still on the same formula. Maybe the backlash is from Curtis’ hiatus from music. Without mixtape’s flooding the streets or constant freestyles 50 cent is becoming irrelevant. Lil Wayne has made it almost impossible to stay relevant if nothing is being dropped on a consistent basis. (A 2 month period between projects) Whatever it may be 50 Cent put up dud numbers on an album that was far from a dud.
This particular album was never released by Sony and I know a lot of heads rolled over that decision. Power of the Dollar was slated to be 50 Cents first commercial release but in hindsight Get Rich or Die Tryin’ was an alright entrance into mainstream America. This was 50 at his grittiest before the veneers, cologne and multi-million dollar deals. Listen to young Curtis Jackson and place yourself back in 2000 and try to remember if you saw this coming. Aftermath/Shady did and all those that picked this up
on accident from a Jamaican bootlegger were blessed with a glimpse into the future. Say what you say about 50 cent now but analyze the lines from then and tell me why he’s not your favorite rapper.

Update : gave you my favorite track from Guess Who’s Back after the jump.
Now I am not really a fan of Jimmy Fallons late night show but boy does he treat Hip Hop good. I am more of a Conan O’Brien fan but he does cool segments sometimes (XBOX Natal demo for my Gizmodo dudes). Anyway, the thank the DJ Heat for putting the tracks together. This mix a collection of mash ups performed on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Nothing like The Roots holding down the instrumentals. Track list after the jump.

I like that boy Ricky. Its not a guilty pleasure cause I don’t care who knows. Well I guess it would be a guilty pleasure in the G-Unit office but 50 cent and his band of Silverback Guerilla’s won’t answer my e-mails. Shouts to Mr. Ross and so what… “I’ll shovel shit, I’ll C O/ So we can bow our heads and pray over the meatloaf.”

Alright so this installment of Mighta Missed Monday comes in two parts. First part is 50 Cent and Eminem’s psycho. Since Before I Self Destruct wasn’t bought by anyone most people might have missed this. Yes it was a feature on blogs but 50 Cent and Eminem aren’t capturing attention names like Drake and Lil Wayne. Its unfortunate really because this is a really good track. Its vintage 50 and Em at their best. 50 sings on the chorus and talks about killing people in his verse while Eminem just murders it. This should get into shade 45′s xm rotation.
Another installment of Throwback Thursday is upon us and Victory is my offering. I pray that this atones for my absence and various other transgressions. New segment this monday stay tuned. I also added a related track after the jump. Here’s a hint….Before I Self Destruct is in stores Nov. 23rd.
Tonight team PMD (sans Fresh, Carter G & Hymn) went to the premiere for Curtis new movie B.I.S.D. Fans of all ages came out to enjoy 50′s directorial debut. People clapped and had a good time. With cameos in the crowd such as Uncle Murda, Al Be Back, Chris Lighty, Juelz Santana Jazzy Joyce and more came out to show Fif support. Of course the Unit was there too, Banks, Yayo & DJ Whoo Kid. Let 50 tell you the rest, I talk too much. Review coming soon.
