It looks like 50 Cent is trying to better himself as an artist, which is a relief, especially if you heard his last musical disaster, Curtis. After listening to this LP, it seems he is actually trying to rap and to pick beats that aren't completely awful. Also, you have no idea how relieved I was to hear that “C.R.E.A.M. 2009” wasn't just a rap over the Wu instrumental! Could Curtis actually be….trying? (And not trying to humiliate a rapper, ruin their career, or hold down a scene with Robert DeNiro.)
Good work, 50, for giving some of us a reason to wait for Before I Self Destruct .
