BBC Review

Being a man of no little self-regard, 50 Cent claimed that if Curtis, his third studio album, failed to outsell Kanye West's Graduation in its opening week, it would be his last. Final figures had Curtis clocking in at second place, but the music within confirms that if Curtis Jackson is from now on going to cut a more modest figure, it's a demeanour that still appears to be largely alien to him.

Affairs kick off with one of 50's customarily bullet-ridden openers, 'My Gun Go Off' - a tension-knot of swaggering machismo and rising synth that references Eminem's 'Lose Yourself' both musically and lyrically (except 50 flips the lyrical reference, rap battling replaced by the rattle of a fully automatic).

If Curtis suggests that 50 Cent's main passions - that is, money, violence, and women - remain largely unchanged from his 2003 debut Get Rich Or Die Trying, it's clear that he's still finding new ways of articulating them. Not in his delivery, necessarily; that remains the familiar cycle of boasts, threats and unflappable self-confidence delivered in that one-note slur. Partly, this is thanks to updated production, heavy on the buzzy, heat-warped synthesiser lines and booming, post-Neptunes drums.

But also, it's in part down to a judicious use of guests including Eminem, Mary J Blige, and Nicole Scherzinger of Pussycat Dolls. 'I'll Still Kill' sees 50 joined on the chorus by Akon, his mournful soul delivery adding a sad, fallen-soldier fatalism to the martial battle rhymes. 'Ayo Technology' hooks up with Timbaland and Justin Timberlake, the former building the high-end from blocky, pixellated synths fresh from an '80s computer game. And 'Follow My Lead', a match-up with crooner Robin Thicke, imagines 50 in smart evening wear, trying his alpha-male thing with a 'lucky lady': 'If you'll be my Beyonce, I'll be your Jay'.

As ever, 50 Cent remains a troublesome sort of figure, touting violence and amorality with a shamelessness that's doubly chilling for his mainstream ubiquity. It remains hard, though, not to be a little impressed his dogged, unwavering spirit. In 50's world, might really is right. --Louis Pattison

Format: Audio CD
50's third album has received a lot of negative press. From the delays, to the dud singles, to losing the sales race to Kanye's "Graduation". In fact the writing was on the wall on this album long before, when G-Unit releases (Mobb Deep, Lloyd Banks, Young Buck) started flopping. Tony Yayo beating on young kids did not help the G-Unit cause either. One could even argue that the split with Game which resulted in Dr. Dre's semi-retirement; or even Eminem's Kim inspired semi-retirement (Note that both Dre & Eminem are missing from the executive producer credits) all conspired to doom the album before it came out. That is if you consider 600K in your 1st week a failure.

On to the album. 50 Cent really outdoes himself on this one. The album has a perfect balance between commercial and gangsta (a criticism of his last album). The album is far superior to "The Massacre". The running time is perfect (not too long). As usual 50 Cent digs up great beats from little known producers. Including a couple of gems from underground favourite Jake One who acquits himself well on the commercial arena.

The 1st six tracks are vintage 50 Cent, which is good news for long time fans & will surprise those that only know 50 Cent from his videos. The beats are sick and 50 is talking smack like only 50 can. "I Get Money" is already an anthem & "I Still Kill" is a classic. The beat on "Man Down" more than makes up for all the bleeps (the track is censored). Its so sick I'm sure Dr. Dre wishes he had produced it himself.

50 Cent doesn't forget radio and he caters for it with good effect throughout the album. Starting with the monster single "Ayo Technology" & the ultra smooth "Follow My Lead" with Robin Thicke.

If i could i would give this album 3.5 stars because sadly, Curtis is nowhere near as good as the classic Get Rich Or Die Tryin' which had both amazing beats and lyrics. There are no memorable rhymes on Curtis and if it wasn't for AYO Technology and I Get Money, i would give this album 1 star. In the Curtis vs. Graduation battle 50 lost, but not because Kanye's Album was brilliant or a classic, 50's was just poor comparatively. It annoys me how everybody whether they know anything about rap or not is saying that 50 can't rap and Kanye is the best ever HE'S NOT!!!! Kanye West can't rap, he is not a rapper he is a good producer but definetly not a good rapper, but 50 is. I cannot think of a single memorable rhyme by Kanye, but 50 had loads on his debut Get Rich Or Die Tryin' such as "I'm the diamond in the dirt, that aint been found, i'm the underground king, and i aint been crowned" from the song Many Men (Wish Death). Fair enough if everyone wants to slate 50 because they don't like his style or attitude or whatever, but don't just hate his music because u hate him! I don't like Kanye West, if i met him i would punch him because he is so far up his own backside that he can't think right. But i still listen to some of his best songs like Golddigger and Can't Tell Me Nothing off his latest album. 50 has a big ego, but compared to Kanye's, it's tiny. Kanye thinks he's God but he's not even in the top 100 rappers of all time whereas in my opinion 50 cent is just because of the awesome quality of his first album and his second one which was still good but not as great as his debut. Basically, if u like 50 at all buy this album but if u just like hip-hop/rap in general and no-one in particular i would advise u to only buy the good songs off this album individually, like Fire, I Get Money & AYO Technology.Read more ›

A lot of people come on and attack 50 Cent but if he had released this as a debut albulm then it wouldn't be the same. Their are some really good tracks on here if you actually listen to the music instead of just thinking that 50's faded. People also say, oh he's always on about guns, take out your copy of Get Rich or Die Trying, it's focused on guns, you don't like that? Well then whatever 50 came out with you'd have a problem with. Then the 50 vs. Kanye issue, every albulm sounds similar from Kanye, a lot of people will say, oh what are you on about, but if you actually listen, the songs are good, but every track is the same with different lyrics. I'm not putting Kanye down at all, but I'm saying are you listening to the music, or the name? Yeah, some tracks arn't good, but did you like every track on the Massacre? Do you like every track on Graduation? So listen to it, then decide on the music not the name.

Being a dance fan, i'm always listening to the beats of tracks, and for that reason, 50 Cent always gets my approval.
I'm no expert on the hip-hop scene but buy the occasional album. This was one of them, 50 cent's albums always have great tunes, and this is no exception. Okay, 50 cent does talk about the same old thing, but the tunes are still great.
Highlights include I'm Still Kill feat Akon, I Get Money, the fantastic Dre produced Come & Go, Ayo Technology, Movin On Up & Peep Show (with an appearance from Eminem).
If your not too worried about vocal content, this is a great album.
