  • Summary: The rapper's first album in two years includes appearances by Eminem, Justin Timberlake, and Mary J. Blige and production from Timbaland and Dr. Dre.

  1. Curtis seems surprisingly modest. The album is neither as contagious as "Get Rich or Die Tryin'" (apparently it's possible to have an entire album stuck in your head) nor as devious as "The Massacre."
  2. It's a solid performance, that is both better and worse than it could have been.
  3. In the end, Curtis is entertaining but only impressive in that 50 can run in place and still be on top.
  4. Though the album is good, for an artist of 50 Cent's caliber, it's not great.
  5. 50's new album is a blatant rehash--a bottom-line sequel that insults the same audience it mindlessly panders to.
  6. Curtis doesn't sound like it was much fun to make, and it isn't much fun to listen to.
  7. A 55-minute mess called Curtis, undoubtedly one of this year’s worst releases.
