50 Cent Is After the Money on ‘Hustler’
After the hubbub around 'Love & Hip Hop' dies down and the season premieres, hip-hop fans will have 50 Cent's 'Animal Ambition' to look forward to. Singles like 'Hustler' should only increase the anticipation.
50 Cent rides on Jake One's wobbly keys and marching percussion to return to his Queens-bred hustling mindset. The conscientious, introspective rapper isn't here, but the perpetually flossing Fiddy is and he comes with glee.
Although 'Hustler' is standard in its hook-verse formula, 50 Cent is as street-minded as he's been with recent tracks. This is more about flourishing then being threatening, even though 50 Cent still mentions he's still wearing the bulletproof vest on the outro.
'Animal Ambition,' 50 Cent's first album since leaving Interscope, arrives June 3.
