  1. It's all good. Favourites switch with listens, and we can assure you that this record will remain on your deck all year.
  2. If this combination of big-name backers, undeniable skills, radio-ready tracks and a marketable thug persona make Get Rich or Die Tryin' a sure-shot smash hit, it also makes it a great record.

    Along with Marshall Matters Lp, Blueprint, Eminem Show, College Dropout, This few albums were the only classic hip hop albums released in the 2000s. 50cent took the music industry with surprise with this album but bigger thanks to Eminem and Dr Dre, i believe anyone who rides with Em and Dre cant lose. Classic !!!!! Full Review »

    The music and lyrics are okay, but for me, the production is somewhat not quite there yet. I love hip hop and 50 Cent is definitely talented. It's just that the album as a set feels static for me, not as special as I expected it to be. Full Review »
