To finish things off, a couple of my personal joints to go with Short Dog’s in the House were on my list. We will highlight 50 Cent this week.

    The Get Rich or Die Trying Soundtrack Released 15 Years Ago

    50 Cent have gone down as one of the most successful rappers of all-time. 50 would rearrange the mixtape game before being signed to Eminem and Shady Records. Get Rich or Die Trying is one of the biggest debut albums ever in hip hop. The album has sold over 12 million copies worldwide.

    50 Cent Mobb Deep Outta Control for Throwback Thursday

    Once again, it’s Thursday which means we’re closer to the weekend. This week’s playlist consisted of a personal mixtape, Too Short, The Ghetto Trying to Kill Me and about 3 other mixtapes. On Tuesday, we celebrated the 15th anniversary of the release of the Massacre by 50 Cent. The Massacre is an underrated classic that doesn’t get enough of props. With the success of Get Rich or Die Trying, it was hard for 50 Cent to emulate that album. The Massacre went on to sell over five million albums and a total of 9 million worldwide.  The Massacre produced four singles off the album and my Throwback Thursday track was…

    Obie Trice We All Die One Day for Throwback Thursday

    Once again, we have arrived at another Thursday, which we’re closer to the weekend. For this week’s Throwback Thursday, we’re going back to the year 2003. Obie Trice was signed to Eminem and his Shady Records debut was called Cheers. Cheers were a really good album and it eventually went gold. The album had hits like Shit Hits the Fan, Average Man, Lady, The Set Up and the featured track. We All Die One Day is the title and it was a straight classic when it dropped. We All Die One Day featured Eminem, 50 Cent and Lloyd Banks back when Shady and G-Unit were killing it. Obie Trice released…

During this time, Tony Yayo was locked up and this G Unit album set Lloyd Banks for his debut project, Hunger for More. Stunt 101 was the first single of the album and my Throwback Thursday track. 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks and Young Buck dropped the track about six weeks before the album and it was featured on several mixtapes. G Unit…
