New Music: 50 Cent, I Get It In

Song: I Get It In
Artist: 50 Cent
Album: Before I Self Destruct
Label: G-Unit / Interscope
Producer: Dr. Dre
Notes: Second single from Before I Self Destruct
Analysis: Every record 50 Cent puts out, his lead single tries to duplicate the biggest hit of his career, ‘In Da Club’ from 2003. With each attempt, you almost start to feel embarrassed for him for trying so hard. But ‘Get It In’ is as close as it can possibly get, without being a complete mockery. I actually do like this song. I can see it being a big hit in the bars and clubs, and it is something that I wouldn’t be embarrassed to play at a party. I gave 50 a hard time the other day by saying that Lloyd Banks was a better MC, but 50’s strongpoint is songwriting. The man knows how to write a catchy hook, and this song personifies his specialty. ‘Get It In’ is what it is; the same old pop rap song for the radio that you can always expect from a 50 Cent record, and it’s good, but check back with me in about two months after this has been played to death. Hopefully, Before I Self Destruct has more ‘I Get Money’s than ‘In Da Club’s.
