Like some of his contemporaries – and foes – 50 Cent doesn’t need to do music anymore to earn a living, as he’s got that covered in everything from high-end underwear to vodka. Perhaps it’s that kind of mentality which, arguably, has resulted in better music from Curtis – and, by extension, his G-Unit brothers – lately also. And it is perhaps that way of thinking that has inspired his new release, The Kanan Tape.
A nod to his sinister (and still living, spoiler alert) character on the Starz series Power, the project is loaded with the aggressive content 50 Cent promised fans to deliver all those years. He’s also brought some familiar faces along for the ride as well: Young Buck, Boosie Badazz, Alchemist, Post Malone, Scoop DeVille, !LLmind, Sonny Digital, London On Da Track. A concise seven tracks, it’s a surprisingly refreshing project from 50 that continues his newfound inspired musical sense which begets the question, “where has this 50 Cent been?” Apparently, he had to self-destruct before he could find himself once again.

UPDATE: According to Curtis, the delay on The Kanan Tape was due to him waiting to get the visuals in line. With that said, he drops off one for “Too Rich.”
