Re: Hip Hop Discussion Thread
I thought 50 was wack as shit from The Massacre on. HATED Just a Lil Bit, Candy Shop, and basically all those singles. Baltimore And Ski Mask Way were dope, rest of the album I didn't care for.
Get Rich was never one of my favorite albums, but I couldn't front on it. That album was EVERYWHERE, would hear it playing out of so many cars, dorm rooms, bars and clubs.....inescapable. Even most of the album cuts, not just the singles.
I worked at a 50 Cent show right after that album dropped...it was in the spring of 03, Wanksta had been a big hit in the winter and then In Da Club blew up, and 50 was really taking off. I remember talking to Lloyd Banks a bit, I was probably one of the few rap nerds who knew who he was at that point as he hadn't come out with anything of his own yet but was on the P.I.M.P remix, so that's how I recognized him.
