Where has 50 Cent been? The one time Hip-Hop juggernaut has been quiet for the last few years on the music front. Disagreements with his label, Interscope, and changing trends in the game had many feeling like maybe Fiddy might be done. Just like that, he introduces us to the The Lost Tape. Hosted by DJ Drama, The Lost Tape brings back the 50 Cent that we all grew to love on his early mixtape releases.
Like on his early projects his goal was to introduce the world not just to 50 Cent, but to G-Unit overall -- he does the same with The Lost Tape. While many will notice that longtime G-Unit affiliates, Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks, are not featured on the disc, but the newest members of the G-Unit team, Kidd Kidd and Precious Paris, are featured heavily. Also featured on the mixtape are 2 Chainz, Snoop Dogg and Eminem.
The Lost Tape is a solid project overall. Good music and solid production from new producers, The Lost Tape will make you feel like you found the old 50.
