Enjoy It While It Lasts
This is the fifth single off of 50 Cent's album, Curtis. It features an appearance and production from Akon. While this song is very good and will become a mainstream hit, the video is not worth a purchase. It takes place in a jail, and basically shows how 50 and Akon refuse to change their personalities even through tough times. Although this song seems like a street single at first listen, I predict it will wind up having a success slightly below Ayo Technology. It is made for the mainstream crowd, and Akon really helps out. Now the reason I say enjoy it while it lasts, is because 50 Cent has used up just about all of the potential singles off of Curtis. This is his fault, as he decided to make the mistake of releasing two singles at a time. What otherwise would have been a very long-lasting streak of hits was diminished due to this poor strategy of his. In the midst of this Kanye vs. 50 battle, a lot of previous 50 Cent fans have left 50 because he got shown up by Kanye. Although Kanye West is my second favorite artist behind only Eminem, I still like 50 Cent. There really is no need to choose one or the other. Also, 50 Cent's music is just as good as it was for his first two albums. So if you liked him in the past, there really isn't any reason for you not to like him now.
Creativity level= OVERLOAD!
As if Ayo Technology didn't have a creative enough video that (probably) went over a LOT of heads he strikes with his sixth single (because Follow My Lead didn't get airplay) known as I'll Still Kill. This is an unbelievable video to a great song. Very hardcore, mean mug, in your face type of ish. Before I Self Destruct (50's last album on Shady/Aftermath) in stores 2008
lets face facts
i like 50 cent, i like him alot. but look at his history. G-Unit isn't exactly pumpin new records out any more, i don't even know where some of them went after they split up so all you ppl typing GGG-Unit need to get out of the 90's and into the single digits. next 50 cent didn't help his career by standing next to eminem through his career either or by his multiple "beefs" with other rappers. He just happened to be the only one who came out on top, he would easily be crushed by a return of eminem or a new record by infamous dr.dre, he just isn't the best. i think he's better than kanye but his lyrics are kind of old school xxx if you know what i mean. kanye is like the cabage patch kid of rap. ppl just feel more comfortable with him. not to mention 50's terrible marketing strategy. a better idea i think would have been to release ayo and go toe to toe with stronger and see who would have won out instead of releasing the weaker straight to the bank first. overall he is the real king of rap because where was kanye during all of this ledgendary history huh, he didn't take no chances and doesn't deserve the krown. (kanye is good just not 50 cent good) so overall fiddy will always be looked at as king anyway because where did some of the top rap hits of this era come from anyway hint IN DA CLUB, CANDY SHOP, HATE IT OR LOVE IT, OUTTA CONTROL, DISCO INFERNO, WANKSTA, HOW WE DO, MANY MEN, AYO TECHNOLOGY, and ILL STILL KILL.
