50 Cent's financial situation may be under much scrutiny and speculation, but that hasn't stopped rap's favorite bully from conducting business as usual and delivering his latest offering, The Kanan Tape. After promising fans a proper mixtape to precede his long-awaited Street King Immortal album, Fif delivers a project inspired by the menacing character Kanan he portrays on the show Power.
Running seven tracks deep, The Kanan Tape is more of a sprint than a marathon and should hold G-Unit loyalists over until his next proper full-length. The Lil Boosie and Young Doughboy-assisted heater, "Nigga Nigga," instantly grabs the listener's attention from the rip and features the invigorated Queens spitter spewing greasy tough-talk over the sinister soundbed. Being the wily veteran that he is, 50 Cent makes sure to give his fans servings of his vintage style while also catering to the signs of the time by hooking up with Post Malone on the upbeat "Tryna Fuck Me Over".
Aside from taunting his rivals and half-hearted thugs, another calling card of 50 Cent's arsenal is his penchant for delivering humorous ditties centered around the opposite sex. Selections like "Too Rich for the Bitch" find Fif in that zone and as heartless and callous as ever, serving as one of his better showings on the tape.
Although solid from top to bottom, the Alchemist-produced "Body Bags" is the main event of The Kanan Tape. This is a performance reminiscent of the days he was at the height of his career. "Burner On Me" and "On Everything" are also more than serviceable cuts and should satisfy most rap fan's palette.
The rhymer does his Power character justice by cooking up a project that falls in line with its namesake's sinister ways. After giving the effort a spin, we've compiled a few lines that are too witty to miss. Check out 10 Best Lyrics From 50 Cent's The Kanan Tape.
"So what you saying boy, you a shooter boy, nigga, we don't care who you shot / Nigga, we talking money round rich niggas, nigga, we don't care what you got / Bitch, I got six niggas to hit niggas, boy, I don't give a fuck."
"Too Rich for the Bitch"50 Cent
"You be all in ya feelings bout her like when I see 'em, I'ma kill this nigga, / I'm on three-way like 'You hear this nigga' / I should take the bitch back and clip this nigga / Pussy make him not pay attention, you punk bitch, go wit' this nigga."
"I peep my swag in the mirror, I think I gotta crush on me / I don't want no wack bitches touching me / Tailor-made threads, satin sheets on my bed / Get a bitch seasick, waves all on my head."
"Nigga Nigga"Young Doughboy
I'm rent money, I get money / A bitch better get what she can get from me / Got tats all on my body, my paperwork coming back clean / Me and Boosie just tryin' to help B.G. get through his 14 [years]."
"Tryna Fuck Me Over"Post Malone
"Right before I came into this bitch high / Needed cigarettes needed a pit-stop / Spent my life tryin' to be a good guy / Still, people wanna see me get got."
"Niggas get to playing wit' the money / Click, bang, for the money, niggas change over money / They love to see a nigga on the bottom, catch a come-up, gotta keep it on the low / A nigga plug bless me witta whole one, break the bitch down into 36 O's."
"I'm a nightmare, right here, just me and my knife, nigga / Don't make me find out you ain't bout that life, nigga / It's doomsday, I mean, goon day / I give the orders like 'Air out the room, Dre.'"
"Strip, bitch, you heard me, I said, 'Strip bitch' / I'm cold as ice, check the temperature on my wrist, trick / I blew three hundred grand, what kind of watch is that / I bet you wanna know, stop tryna jack my swag, hoe."
"That pistol on me, I pack it / Bitch, your fucking head, I'll crack it / Man, my pinky ring look like marriage / Usher-cut, 10 karats / I shine on 'em, get a line on 'em / Send the wolves right there at 'em"
"Crackers tried to lynch me, couldn't get me 'cause I'm real smart / Heart of a lion, what that mean, I got a big heart / Certified stamp, been like that since a lil boy."
