50 Cent - "Get Rich Or Die Trying" Album #TBT
THROWBABK THURSDAY MUSIC EDITION
I would say that I have about 10 albums on my G.O.A.T list, (greatest of all time) "Get Rich or Die Trying" from 50 Cent real name, Curtis Jackson is definitely on top of that list, the album is such a groundbreaking studio debut from the "In Da Club" rapper, released on February 6, 2003 via Shady/Aftermath/ Interscope Records executively produced Dr Dre & Eminem.
The lead single "In Da Club" was a dynamic street anthem, the track was big on radio, in clubs, in parties, in households, the monster hit single was being heavily rotated everywhere in 2003 till the late 2000's, the music video had grossed over 1billion views on youtube within the last 17 years. "In Da Club" still remains one of the most requested birthday songs of all time.
I've a number of favourites on this LP, "21 Questions" featuring Nate Dogg, P.I.M.P original version and remix featuring Snoop Dogg and his G-Unit Protege Young Bucks and Lloyd banks.
"Wanksta" is widely renowned for its massive features on Eminem's 2002 "8 Mile" movie soundtrack. "What Up Gangsta" is one of those tracks that when the Dj spins it, the whole club goes wild and bumpy, creating the same atmosphere with the likes of "DMX - Party Up" & "Fatman Scoop - Be Faithful" it's a proper party track, alongside "If I Can't" another club-focused song on the LP, tracks like "Many Men (Wish Death) and "Back Down" are just purely timeless hip hop tracks.
The last time I checked, "Get Rich Or Die Trying" is nearly reaching Diamond certified status, as it had been certified 9× Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) earlier this year, February 2020.
As a fan of hip hop/rap music, I truly believe that 50 Cent "Get Rich Or Die Trying" album as phenomenal as it is, would remain a relevant hip hop/rap project for many more years to come.
