"The album is a welcomed return for 50, who sounds like his hiatus didn’t affect his ability to create his signature street records" — XXL

Rapper 50 Cent's new Animal Ambition — his first independently-distributed album since leaving Interscope Records — shows he's still king of the streets on this, his fifth full-length release.

Eschewing the pop bombast of most modern rap, 50 gets gritty here. In fact, Animal Ambition is as raw as he's ever been. By focusing on minimalist hood anthems and honing his inimitable flow, he builds his best album since 2003's now-classic Get Rich or Die Tryin'. By the end of the 11 tracks, it's refreshing to see he still possesses that same ambition from over a decade ago.

His verses weave through soulful croons and a staggering beat on the hypnotic "Hold On", making for some of his most potent wordplay. Yo Gotti delivers a gruff cameo on "Don't Worry 'Bout It" as a stilted synth ominously hums and 50 proclaims, "Don't worry 'bout what I'm doing". It's one of those big classic hooks that fans love, and he drops in a little humor admitting, "I've seen it all on Instagram". A roar at the beginning of "Animal Ambition" captures his mindset as the track becomes a tribal call-to-arms. Longtime collaborator Dr. Dre delivers production to the hazy "Smoke" featuring Trey Songz, but for the most part this is an understated affair, matching the indie delivery for the album. 50's wise for it too, seizing that old school energy in the process.
