The Best 50 Cent Songs of All Time

There are plenty of great songs that come out of the 50 cents genre, and if you’re a fan of hip hop, you’ve probably heard them all. But, if you’re new to the genre, you might be wondering which ones you should listen to. Let’s take a look at a few of them.

Get Rich or Die Tryin’

The Get Rich or Die Tryin’ album was 50 Cent’s debut studio release. It came out on February 6, 2003, and was released on Eminem’s Shady Records label.

The album sold over 872,000 copies in the first week. At the time of its release, it was the biggest-selling debut album by a rapper.

Get Rich or Die Tryin’ also reached number one on the Billboard 200 chart for six weeks. In addition, the album received five Grammy nominations. It was nominated for Best Rap Album.

It has been recognized as a classic. The album was ranked 280 on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. Additionally, it was rated 12th on Billboard magazine’s Top 200 Albums of the Decade.

In a recent interview, 50 Cent said that he still thinks the album is a masterpiece. Despite some flaws, there’s no denying that the album holds up today.

Among the standout tracks on the album are “P.I.M.P.”, “In da Club,” and “21 Questions.” Those songs were all hits around the world. As a result, Get Rich or Die Tryin’ remains influential in hip-hop culture.

Get Rich or Die Tryin’ was a landmark album for rap music. It had songs for everyone. It was a fusion of Southern textures with gritty East Coast lyrical content. Combined with the fact that it was helmed by two of the most respected producers in the game, it was a major breakthrough.

Get Rich or Die Tryin’ is a long album. While it has a few great singles, the majority of it is filler. This is particularly true of the second half.

Get Rich or Die Tryin’ features beats that are both commercial and friendly. This makes it perfect for the gangster babble of the Ten Nickels studio. However, the beats have a tendency to be loping.

Da Heatwave

Da Heatwave is one of the most famous 50 cent songs of all time. It came out during the early 2000s and was a very popular song in New York. However, its success was stymied by 50 Cent’s infamous shooting.

The lyrics on this song were very clever without being too clever. It’s about using a girl to get money. A rap version was recorded and released in 2007. But that version got dropped after a beef with Jadakiss.

The song was re-released on the 8-Mile soundtrack. That was a big deal for 50 Cent. At the time, he was on the verge of releasing a classic album.

In 2003, 50 Cent released Get Rich Or Die Tryin’. The album featured five chart-topping singles. Many of the songs were produced by Trackmasters. This album was certified gold by the RIAA.

When Power of the Dollar was released, 50 Cent was already a millionaire. However, that wasn’t the end of the story. After his shooting, his record label dropped him. His subsequent albums saw a drop in chart returns.

The aforementioned “Da Heatwave” is a gritty, New York anthem. It also made a big splash in 2003 when it reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100.

One of the many things the song is rumored to have gotten right is the beat. While it sounds like a chromed out ice cream truck, it also softens 50’s threats.

There are a handful of other famous 50 cent songs, but none have quite the same impact. Among them is the aforementioned “Da Heatwave”. You can download it on the JioSaavn App. Another awe-inspiring track is the “Blinding Lights”.

In the midst of his career, 50 Cent made a name for himself in the music business. His songs are notable for their unique hooks. They also show off his knack for writing pop rap.

How to Rob

“How to Rob” is a controversial song written by rapper Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson. The song is about a robbery, and includes a lyric about Mariah Carey. In response to the song, a number of artists criticized it.

In the early 2000s, 50 Cent’s music was ubiquitous in clubs. He was one of the biggest rappers of the time. But his subsequent albums failed to chart well.

One of his first singles, “How to Rob”, was released in 1999. Originally, it was intended to be the lead single for his debut album, Power of the Dollar. However, it was later shelved by Columbia Records.

In the years since the song’s release, 50 has worked with a number of famous rappers, including Busta Rhymes, DJ Clue, Lil’ Kim, Missy Elliott, and Timbaland. And he has a history of promoting himself aggressively through social media.

“How to Rob” became a viral hit, and a lot of people criticized it. It was featured on the soundtrack for the film In Too Deep. Another viral hit was Screwball’s “Who Shot Rudy?”.

When “How to Rob” was released, the song triggered a robust reaction among hip-hop fans. Several artists responded, including Jay-Z, Ghostface Killah, and Big Pun. Some of the responses were more critical than others.

During its release, “How to Rob” was heavily discussed by the media. One morning show in New York was full of talk about it. Later, an essay by Chris Hayes was published in The Atlantic.

It is a great example of the rap industry’s changing landscape. It also shows how artists kept the controversy going. By the end of its run, “How to Rob” received 650 spins.


There are several songs that soared up the charts and hit the top of the US Billboard Hot 100 during the release of 50 Cent’s debut album Get Rich or Die Tryin’. It was one of the best selling rap albums of all time and was nine times platinum.

The song “Wanksta” was 50 Cent’s first single to chart after signing with Eminem’s label. This song originally appeared on the No Mercy, No Fear mixtape. Later, it was added to the 8 Mile soundtrack and hit the Billboard Hot 100.

Although 50 Cent didn’t have a huge fanbase before releasing his debut album, the buzz surrounding the project was incredible. His tracks were filled with powerful hooks and a Southern lilt. As a result, it sold more than eight million copies in the United States alone.

After the success of Get Rich or Die Tryin’, 50 Cent released the Street King Immortal album. He had a number of false starts, but he came out a winner in the end. In the album, he drew inspiration from his own past. For instance, the title track is a reenactment of his nearly fatal shooting.

“Many Men (Wish Death)” is the third single from 50’s debut. Featuring a harrowing hook, this song is a highlight of the album.

The track is also featured on the soundtrack of the film 8 Mile, which was loosely based on the life of Eminem. Like the movie, the song is about gangsters, but the lyrics are meant to be funny.

Another great hook on this album is “If I Can’t” which features an interpolation of Run-D.M.C.’s “Peter Piper”. On a side note, 50 Cent’s voice is as sharp as ever.
