  • Summary: The rapper's second album was "executive" produced by Dr. Dre, Eminem and 50 himself and includes the singles "Piggybank" and "Disco Inferno."

  1. All the ugly gangsta lies are here, especially as regards the brutalization of women and the business of death. But they're incidental to the mood of the piece, which is friendly, relaxed, good-humored, and in the groove.
  2. It is hands-down the most diabolically sensous collection of baby-making gangsta music since Pac's All Eyez.

    He represents gangsta rap's evolution into pure entertainment. [May 2005, p.116]
  4. The new songs (and subject) aren't as absorbing as the old. [11 Mar 2005, p.101]
  5. 60
    Not even tight productions from Eminem and Dre can stop things from flagging midway. [May 2005, p.95]
  6. [50's] rhymes are as stupid as ever.
  7. It's pretty much all the same synth leads, bang-bang beats, and tired rhymes as every other Aftermath related project since The Eminem Show, which wasn't that great either.

    50 cent has never been a lyricist, but this album is pretty bad lyrically. It seems that 50 keeps repeating himself on this album. Production (like on EVERY 50 cent album) is great. However, lyrically, this album is up there with Curtis as the worst 50 album ever. Btw, this album comes NOWHERE close to Get Rich or Die Tryin! Expand
