50 Cent - Old 2003 Ferrari (Freestyle)

50 Cent has been widely criticized for the quality of music he has released for the past few years, so what better way to fix it than by going back to the music that people first loved? When he arrived with the back story of being shot nine times, people thought Fiddy was exactly what hip-hop needed. However, many years later we’ve heard plenty of singing, a far cry from the material he created to chew up Ja Rule. So on his latest freestyle, Old 2003 Ferrari, the tycoon uses his “old” style, updating it for the current times and revealing the emcee many have been missing. Produced by newcomer Jay Marvlis, Ferrari‘s beat features some heavy drums and a sample that I embarrassingly can’t figure out (little help here?), which gives it a banging street sound, as opposed to the more club oriented vibe we’ve been hearing lately. Although the delivery may be a bit too much - if this is 2003 it’s 2003 on steroids - 50’s lyricism is actually pretty decent, and with a couple of punch lines shot at Kanye, Nas and Wiz Khalifa, is this the first step back to the a**hole 50 we loved?
