Reason 1: After all this time, 50 Cent still sounds like the same old G.
You can’t fake passion. You can certainly try to fake passion. But it’s pretty easy to tell when someone is hungry and when they’re simply trying to sound hungry. And make no mistake about it: 50 Cent is hungry on The Big 10. As he says from the start, folks have been counting him out and trying to pinpoint exactly when he “fell off” for years now. In his opinion—and, frankly, in ours—he never has. He’s switched his style up and tried to evolve with the times. But, if nothing else, 50’s going to give you every ounce of blood, sweat, and tears that he’s got when he puts together an album, a mixtape, a song, or, hell, even just a single bar. That hunger shines through on The Big 10 and it will force you to commend 50 for tapping into that hungry side of himself that still exists despite all of his fame and wealth.
