2014 EU issue on 2LP+download-Following a successful twelve years at Shady/Aftermath/Interscope - during which time he sold more than 30 million albums with releases Get Rich or Die Tryin, The Massacre, Curtis and Before I Self Destruct - superstar hip hop recording artist 50 Cent transitions to independent status with his new album Animal Ambition: An Untamed Desire To Win. His fifth overall, Animal Ambition is preceded by the previously released singles "Don't Worry 'Bout It" featuring Yo Gotti, "Hold On," "Pilot" and "Smoke" featuring Trey Songz.
50 Cent, born Curtis James Jackson III, rose to fame with the release of his 2003 album Get Rich or Die Tryin', which has sold more than 8 million copies. 50 has been awarded numerous accolades including multiple Grammys, 13 Billboard Music Awards, six World Music Awards, three American Music Awards and four BET Awards, to name a few.
He was ranked as the #1 rap artist and most successful Hot 100 Artist of the 2000s by Billboard Magazine, as well as that decade's sixth-best artist and fourth top male artists of that decade. What began as music chart dominance for the rap music phenomenon, quickly transformed to success in corporate America as a multi-tiered business mogul to be reckoned with.
"The album is his welcome back moment for 50, who sounds like his hiatus didn’t affect his ability to create his signature street records...'Hold On' is intoxicating and filled with menace, reliving shades of the old 50 from his earlier output. “Irregular Heartbeat,” which features Jadakiss and G-Unit’s newest signee, Kidd Kidd, captures the cold-hearted streets of NY through storytelling lyrics. The gritty realm 50 has dominated is also found in the title track, where he’s just as entertaining as the lion roars and elephant trumpets on the Swiff D production." - Eric Diep, XXL
