The Queens rapper still pushing repetitive nihilism and G-Unit production styles instead of branching out and taking chances with his music.
50 Cent is a noted disciple of self-help guru Robert Greene’s Machiavellian handbook, The 48 Laws of Power. Not only has the muscle-bound hip-hop colossus modeled his career after the cutthroat guide, he’s working with Greene on a street-flavored addendum called The 50th Law. So far, the four dozen over-the-top credos have worked swimmingly for 50: He’s sold more than 20 million albums worldwide since 2003 while pulling in auxiliary profits with Vitamin Water and other less amusing side hustles.
2.The Game-The Documentary
If 50 Cent's debut was a project propelled by a villain's charisma and the gulliest of origin stories, we must admit that Game, in contrast, was just riding the beats. With a soundscape dominated by Dr. Dre, Just Blaze, and Kanye West, The Documentary is a millennial blend of soul meta-samples, synth strings, tenor-sung hooks. This one tape alone hosts many of 2005's most memorable beats; the minimal, addictive synth cadence of "How We Do," the soul hypnosis of "Hate It Or Love It," and the godly stomps of "Higher."
The Documentary was everything a rap album could've been in 2005: a beatmaker dream team, one of the last great D'Angelo choruses, as well as Nate Dogg's last hurrah. (Plus, a Detox teaser). And while Dre receives all due props from Game, "No More Fun and Games" and "Church for Thugs" tally among the best work of Just Blaze's career.

By 2009, 50 Cent's moment had passed. He had already suffered an embarrassing loss in 2007 to Kanye West when Graduation handily outsold 50's Curtis. But that only told half the story. Kanye didn't just make a better album (50 admitted as much in a recent GQ profile) but made 50's sound feel old and outdated—like a superstar athlete who ruined his knees and just didn't have the same lift anymore. By '09, all the seeds of Kanye's influence began to blossom as rappers like J. Cole and Drake began their ascent, creating a new paradigm in rap that left gangsta rap in the dust. Yet, even hobbled, 50 was still kicking that "aggressive content" as a reminder that street rap would always have a place in hip-hop.
The G-Unit flag that waved so mightily in the 2000s was at half-staff by the end of the decade. 50 Cent's musical success and relevance was on a downslope, Young Buck and Game were ceremoniously removed from the picture, and Tony Yayo was, well, Tony Yayo. Which meant Lloyd Banks, G-Unit's silent assassin, was left in a discomforting position. The self-proclaimed Punchline King was reeling from a sophomore slump, as well as being dropped from Interscope. So his decision to title his third release as a sequel to his debut album felt more like a desperation move than a novelty nod to its predecessor.
If The Hunger for More was Banks' crowning solo achievement and Rotten Apple the result of lack of execution, H.F.M.2. was somewhere in between.
50 Cent likes Lloyd Banks' beats. In 2014 when 50 released 'Animal Ambition' album, He used Lloyd Banks' beat of song GreenDay(+Havoc+Cormega)prod. by Ty Fyffe from V.5 mixtape to his single 'Chase Da Paper'(+Prodigy+Kidd Kidd+Stypes P).This single is part of 'Animal Ambition'.
Cardiak creator of Lloyd Banks smash sigle Start It Up(+Kanye West+Swizz beatz+Fabolous) said, taht original version of start it up was 50 Cent's verse, but next 50 cent replaced by Kanye West.
Now 50 Cent want relese first version of 'Start It Up' through his album 'Street King Immortal'.
50 Cent also want to relese his hidden remix of Lloyd Banks' gold hit 'Beamer, Benz or Bentley'(+Julez Santana).
