50 Cent — Get Rich or Die Tryin' — 15 years old — Trax Poll

In Da Club has that Quik production touch, might have to take the easy way out and pick that one.

Many Men, If I Cant, Poor Lil Rich all strong contenders.

not listened to it for a while but it’s great obvs. so many hooks

Remember some kid on my school bus got this on the day it came out and played it over some portable speakers for everyone to hear for about 3 weeks solid.

Got old after a while, but those were some memorably fun bus rides.

What a massive album - especially when you look at that track list. No wonder he could never follow it up - had the perfect come up story, the perfect look, the best production of his time and the nod from the biggest emcee on the planet. I listened to this to death as a kid. Might have to go for Many Men, just because I always went for the Deep cuts as a moody teen.

It’s definitely this. There’s a lot of great tracks on this - it’s totally solid and personally think it’s aged fairly well. This is blatantly the one though

yeah you’re probably right. song was everywhere for a year straight.

I love the intro. Pretty much any song w gun sounds incorporated into the beat is gonna win me over, though.

Meant to say Heat.

Listening again for the first time in aaaages and it holds up well. So many massive songs here. Really loving the hooks on High All The Time and Blood Hound.

Chose 21 Questions for nostalgic reasons mainly. Always makes me happy when that intro comes on. Also <3 Nate Dogg

Going to play Beg For Mercy front-to-back straight after this I think

Some of 50 Cents gun collection from Mass Appeal.

Don’t think I’ve ever listened to this album in it’s entirety. One of my saddest days in hip hop was when Mobb Deep got G-Unit tattoos. Enjoyed the hype around, and a few tracks off, Guess Who’s Back but the guy was always a complete clown to me.


never mind, seems they fixed the autoplay bug

i went with the joke answer to avoid thinking too hard :sunglasses:
