Only listened to Psycho so far but s**t 50 holds his own (maybe even does better) than EM on that track...pretty impressive.

 Birdman's Back said:
1) The Invitation
Damn, this the way you start out a f**kin album. 50 just murkin' this b**ch. Hard beat, aggressive a.ss lyrics. Gotdamn, 50 sound hungry as f**k on here."got popped up, cried till my eyes turned red/told myself in the mirror, n*gga you aint dead/im far from eccentric, im so psychotic/i dont need you to shoot for me n*gga i got it". That line about feeding em a semi for breakfast was :wow: 4/5
2) Then Days Went By
Nice soul sample on the beat and 50 flips that s**t into some hard s**t. "since high school n*gga i aint got no friends/got 2 .380s like the Ying Yang Twins (HEH!)". Talkin' mostly bout his family and cats from the neighborhood. 50's flow was nice as f**k. Nice hook too. 4/5
3) death To My Enemies
Gotdamn, loving the s**t outta that beat and the hook. 50 again spittin that hard s**t, "n*gga front on me, the goons and goblins come out/bushmaster 100 round drums'll run out". Flow is real aggressive just comin with the hard s**t the whole time, "im like Damien n*gga when i start gettin loose on you/closest thing to Lucier, you'll think you got a noose on you/i'll make it hard to breaaaath/ill come to wear ya hustle and air it out, make it hard to eaaat/have ya lookin both ways like ya crossin the street". Lil' Wayne can consider shots fired..."this aint the CARTER, this is SPARTA, its HARDER/i'd die or be a MARTYR/respect me like ya father". 5/5
4) So Disrespectful
Gotdamn at the beat, gotta be Dre. "ya daddy f**ked ya momma, then f**ked ya sister/then climbed in yo bed playin wit you sugar/go ahead, grab a belt and hang yaself/matter a fact, grab a strap and BANG yaself/Jay is a big man, he's too big to respond/im a big d*ck, you know the one everybodies on/you gone make me sing murder was the case/bullets ricochet, ping ping, shoot the star off ya face" gotdamn, boy went in on Game and even Buck in the 2nd verse and even spoke on his baby mamma and his own father in the 3rd verse and goes back in on Game in the 3rd too. He changes his flows up some too. s**t is crazy. 5/5
5) Psycho feat. Eminem
Another sickening beat, either Dre or Em did this s**t or maybe both. I love the s**t outta the hook, something a little different from 50 with this one. Both Em & 50 ride this beat like f**kin crazy, good lawd. Flows just outta the world. Both Eminem and 50 merked the dog s**t outta this record, Eminem O.D.'d on that b**ch tho. I aint even tryin to keep up with this lyrics and quote em, dudes is goin in. Loved how they went back and forth in the 3rd verse, damn it boy. 5/5
6) Hold Me Down
A song about 50's favorite chick? Nope bout his favorite gun! Loving it, kind of a more aggressive "Baltimore Love Thang". "when we get intimate, thats when i get into s**t/she .32 im 34, i f**k her raw/she revolve 6 times, then i a feed her more/". Hook and beat are nice as f**k too and 50's flow is nice as f**k too. This type of track has been done before but this one is def. one of the better, primarily because of 50's flow. 4/5
7) Crime Wave
I think everybody prolly heard this record already, 50's street single. Reminds me alot of "Heat" from GRODT. Dope record, hard as f**k. 4/5
8) Stretch
Gotdamn, I was wondering what the f**k this record could be about and it's about him 'stretching his dope out' damn. Dope beat, hard lyrics, master of the slow flow on it again. Makes his voice even sound kinda screwed on it, prolly my favorite hook so far on the album. "im the dope man, coke man, smoke man, whatever man/and the x man, tech man, you better respect man/get the beam, triple beam, inf beam, murder scheme/fiend, more fiend, dream, codein, more lean/gun pop, one shot, body dropped....it wouldnt me/tell the cops it wasnt me, you saw me right? it wasnt me/its not my M.O., see i make it STREEEETCH/get in my way and i'll put a body on my TEEEECH". 4/5
9) Strong Enough
"i do more than talk that, i muf**kin walk that/blue yankee cap back, f**k around get clapped at/i sleep wit the stlainless, walk wit the stainless, everybody know about 50, IM FAMOUS!". Damn 9 records in and it's ALL aggressive music, 50 is not playing people. Another dope street record, hard beat, hard lyrics, nice hook. Soundin hungry as f**k on this one too. 4/5
10) Get It Hot
Who is that on the hook? Beat is kinda nice, 50's flow is crazy as f**k. I guess you could kinda call this a club song, but 50 still talkin about hard s**t on it (mainly first verse) lol. Not feelin this one as much but still nice. Way too short, single possibility. 3/5
11) Gangsta's Delight
Boy, is this s**t f**kin crazy or what? Sick a.ss beat but the f**kin hook is outta this world. 50 flips the classic "Rappers Delight" hook into his own harder version and he uses their flows some on the song (not much tho) and just k!lls it. Prolly my favorite 50 song so far next to "Psycho" so far, this is crazy. 5/5
12) I Got Swag
I was worrying about this record when I saw the tracklist, but this is definitely not the typical 'swag' record. Hard beat and 50 came nice on it, kinda a "they aint want me when i want s**t, now i got money and they want me' type of record. 3/5
13) Baby By Me feat. Ne-Yo
Everybody done heard this one so far. Club/b**ch song, decent for what it is, sick beat. Just not my type of hsit. 2.5/5
14) Do You Think About Me
2nd straight b**ch song but this one is definitely nice. Laid back beat and more on some Ghostface s**t (that record he did with Ne-Yo). Nice s**t, much better than "Baby By Me", 3.5/5.
15) OK, You're Right
Love this song, really wish they woulda pushed this one harder as a single and more so than "Baby By Me", just dope beat and hard lyrics. 4/5
16) Could've Been You feat. R. Kelly
This is the final version of the record we heard a few months ago that I guess was going to be a reference track for Dre. Sick beat and good b**ch song, R. Kelly came correct on it. out of the 3 club/b**ch songs I'd say this is better. 4/5

Overall, VERY good album, much better than "Curtis" as the only record I really didn't like was "Baby By Me", the last 4 records kinda trailed off (tho still some bangers) while the rest of the album was just straight classic 50 gangsta rap. Core 50 fans will love this s**t, while others maybe not so much. "Psycho" and "Gangstas Delight" are my favorite records but def. 50's best album since GRODT I would say. I would say its better than "The Massacre" since the Massacre had all great songs except 2 HORRIBLE songs while Curtis had several stinkers.
OVERALL: 4/5
Decent review...tho' I think u are too harsh on baby by me..... I gave it a 4.5/5

yea its the same thing, except there will be three bonus songs from the ITunes version which comes out on the 23rd. It'll be "Flight 187", the original "Baby By Me", and a new song called "Man's World".

50 just dropped a gem. This has to be the hardest album of the year. So Disrespectful is just amazing. I do not listen to 50 for lyrics or a message. I listen to him for that gangsta sh1t. If I want lyrics Ill go listen to Mos, or Rae. 50 dropped an amazing album

I give it a 4.5/5. I voted for a 5 though

4 outta 5.

Brother Curtis got busy with the gangsta boogie. I aint mad at that.

I am mad at "Get It Hot". That could have easily been replaced with "I Get it In" which was a million times over the better song. I'll just make the ol switch ru and BOOM, I'm good.

Besides that this is a banging HIP HOP album not pop, not neo-swag, but hip hop and I'm grateful that dudes like Fif and Em are still at least trying to keep hip hop in the mainstream and not just let the s**t turn into some passive phoney s**t.

Standouts: Days Went By, Stretch, PSYCHO, SO DISRESPECTFUL (GOOD GRIEF)
