50 Cent -Complicated: This is my jam right now. The Lost Tape is really starting to grow on me. This track here reminds me a lot of Hustler’s Ambition,which is a very good thing. Video looks like Fif’s bout to get back on his early 2000s shit. Bulletproof vests, du-rags, & Louisville Sluggers. Aiiight.
Check out the mixtape here. He’s not breaking any molds or anything but most tracks are solid & a few are certified bangers. First time I heard it, I was like “hm, OK”. But I downloaded it about a week after that, and after a few spins it’s stayed in rotation. I know Get Busy is pretty much I Get Money all over again, but that hasn’t stopped me from rappin about the ”canarie yellow rocks in my raaang” as I walk down the street with my headphones in.
If you’re a 50 fan at all, you’re gonna like this.
P.S. This is definitely a discussion for another day, but could you make the argument that 50 Cent is “underground” now?
