The Ave Podcast with Cal Cee. Episode 38: Get Rich of Die Tryin’ #15Years
We here at South Shore Ave decided to gas up the DeLorean & taking you back to the first week of February 2003 (Feb 6th to be precise). Shady/Aftermath launched 50 Cent’s debut album, Get Rich Or Die Tryin’, one of biggest selling Hip Hop albums of all time, selling over 12 million units. Riding the wave of his mixtape popularity, 50 Cent leveraged his fame from the streets in 2002, creating one of the biggest buzzes in Hip Hop history. It forced Eminem & Dr. Dre to put their record companies together in a joint venture to sign 50, and helped to make him one of the biggest artists in music, changing the game in the process with his debut album.
Today on The Ave Podcast, I invite past contributor to South Shore Ave Shawn Adonis (The Notorious B.I.G.’s Ready To Die, Jay-Z’s Reasonable Doubt, as we discuss the career of 50 Cent pre-Get Rich, break down the album’s impact on the Hip Hop industry, rank our Top 5 songs, and compare the album to the other classic Hip Hop albums of this current century.
