CD Review: 50 Cent

Artist: 50 Cent
Album: The Lost Tape
Rating: 4
On May 22, 50 Cent, who hasn’t come out with an album in many years, released his new album which is a mixtape called The Lost Tape. The sound of this album is very similar to his old sounds in other albums, but he does have different beats and includes artists such as Eminem, Snoop Dogg and Jeremih in some of his songs.

This album sounds as if it’s something that 50 Cent put all his effort in and is definitely less commercialized-sounding than his previous albums. According to allhiphop.com, 50 Cent said the freedom from concerns of sales and business has helped him produce music closer to his heart. “I have new ideas, so my passion for making the music hasn’t gone anywhere. That’s why I’m making music for free. The mixtape is for free unless DJ Drama is getting some paper I don’t know about. I need a piece of that paper,” 50 Cent said.

“It’s not about the money,” DJ Drama said. “It’s about the music.”

50 Cent certainly brought a familiar, but new sound in The Lost Tape and all those who are fans of 50 Cent should listen to it free online at datpiff.com. It’s definitely worth the listen.

Give these tracks a listen: “Planet 50,” “All His Love,” “Riot Remix”
