It’s been a long long while since 50 had a solid project. Sure a dope song here or there on a mixtape but that’s about it. What kept 50 from making a comeback? Too many non music related business deals? Too many in-house squabbles? Too much ballin’? Too many over hyped feuds with other rappers? All of the above? Well, from what I’ve heard of his new project it seems to me the only thing that brings out the 50 we all know and love to hate is hunger. If his back isn’t against the wall, if he’s got nothing to prove the music gets diluted. Animal ambition is 50’s first album as an independent artist and he definitely is out to prove not only that he still has it but that he doesn’t need the backing of Shady/Aftermath to win. Peep the new video for the second single “Hold On”
[EDIT] 50 just dropped another video…. “Don’t Worry Bout It”
I knew this song was gonna be fire when 50 sent out a snippet with only his verse. The track was crazy, the chicks in the video were 11’s, the James Bond movie intro silhouettes were slick as hell. 50 killed his verse and there was still more to come, from Kendrick Lamar and 50’s protege Kid Kid. But … we had to wait.
Well, the full song dropped today and the song is dope as hell, from theÂ lyrics to the wardrobe.Â What I don’t understand is, is this not the official video? On the YouTube it says “Official Music Video coming soon.”
Give It Up (Feat. Dj Prince) (Prod. by !llmind) by Skyzoo
Produced by !llmind (Kanye West, 50 Cent, Ludacris, Scarface), Skyzoo drops his latest single, “Give It Up”, featuring DJ Prince.Â This beat is crazy, pairing the demanding drone of a grimyÂ dubstep bass-line, with 808s and drumline patterns,Â a staple of !llmind’s new signature “boom-trap” sound, (listen toÂ Kanye West & G.O.O.D. Music’sÂ “The Morning”Â on theÂ Cruel SummerÂ album).
The ablum, A Dream Deferred, featuresÂ Jill Scott, Freeway, Talib Kweli, Raheem Devaughn and more, and has tracks produced by !llmind, Jahlil Beats, 9th Wonder and Black Milk, to name a few.Â A Dream Deferred drops on October 2nd, on Sky’s newly formed label The Faculty Inc./Duck Down Music.
As Most of you know I was dissed by an artist who goes by the name of Frank Stacks. He took offense to a line in a battle I did against his bestie Dirtbag Dan I did explain that it was more of a play on words than dissing him. He had fair warning this will be the only track that I will put out addressing him One Shot, One Kill Over the Illmind Track that was recently used by 50 cent for Pop The Trunk on his Gangsta Grillz The Lost Tape Because I refuse to waste an original beat on “TRASH RAPPERS”Â . On a positive note you can watch me go for the King Of The Dot Championship June 30th in TorontoÂ Live from CLUB XS Located @261 Richmond Street West, Toronto

Got this from the homie Mazzi (S.O.U.L. Purpose). Senor Kaos is a dope new MC on the come up. Jazzy Jeff is of course the legendary producer/DJ for the Fresh Prince whose collaborations always lead to critical acclaim. This is a good look for Senor Kaos. Jazzy Jeff is of Jam Master Jay’s generation, but it’s good to see young artists like Kaos paying homage and to the late DJ/producer who produced RunDMC, Onyx, The Afros and early 50 Cent. Who knows what he would have added to Hip Hop culture in his later days had his life not been tragically cut short in an as of yet still unsolved murder.
The song is part of Mick Boogie’s tribute to Jam Master Jay “My Adidas”, sponsored by NiceKicks and MixStream. Senor Kaos supplies the flows and Jeff gives us cuts & scratches over the original Peter Piper beat produced by Jam Master Jay. HOT97’s Funk Master Flex has called this the perfect Hip Hop beat. I have to agree. I was a kid when the original jam came out and I can still listen to this beat forever. JMJ rest in peace.
