50 Cent, ‘Stop Cryin’ – Song Review
50 Cent unleashes the first of 10 songs that will appear on his EP 'The Big Ten,' which commemorates his 10-year anniversary of his 2002 mixtape '50 Is the Future.' The New York rapper takes it back to the street with nihilistic rhymes and tough talk.
Fiddy went on his Twitter account to explain the gothic artwork, which feature an eyeless 50 surrounded by two guns and bullets. "If U look close U will find the names of several great generals in my face," he tweeted. "I have no eyes, no windows 2 my soul. This Is coldest s---."
Over sinister keyboards, 50 portrays himself as rap's serial killer as he talks mayhem and murder throughout the track. "See, I have the advantage, I don’t care about tomorrow / Find out that I aint frontin’ when cases start to fall / You know attempted murder was the case that they gave me / nine bullet wounds now I’m half crazy," he spits.
On the chorus, Fiddy recites the famous lines from the late Notorious B.I.G. ("Stop the bloodclot cryin'") and Slick Rick ("Don't cry, dry ya eyes").
It looks as if 50 Cent is waging a war on hip-hop and is taking the battle to the streets. "I'm on some other s---," he wrote in another tweet. "I'll remind U why [I've] gone [DIAMOND] twice. streetking." Oh boy, batten down the hatches.
