The last few weeks have shown the resurgence of New York City’s finest. 50 has been doing interviews and answering questions as difficult as what the status of G-Unit is, his failure to keep New York City hip-hop on top and more demonstrative questions. Let’s just say that the future of G-Unit is unclear, but the future of 50 is more of the same, gettin those fingernails dirty again as he’s climbing higher and higher.
Animal Ambition is set to drop on June 3rd and is the first release by 50 in a while, of course his first couple singles released off of Animal Ambition have prompted the usual statements of, “50’s back” and, “this sounds like the 50 we used to know.”
No track better sums up that ever-present drive that Fif’ has than Pilot – the first single released off of Animal Ambition. Other’s that have followed like, Smoke and Big Rich Town are equally impressive, but one meant for the club (Smoke) and one meant to cruise to (Big Rich Town).
Cam’ron has been busy too, but on the low. Yesterday a new track (Dipshits) dropped by Cam that featured A-Trak (smart choice) Juelz Santana and Federal Reserve executive producer Dame Dash (aka Champagne Dame) – the resurgence of DIPSET. This track is perfect for the summer – even if Cam is sporting his floor-length mink. Look for the Federal Reserve EP to drop soon. 50’s not the only one taking meetings – Cam will be making an appearance with A-Trak at NYC Terminal 5 on May 31st.
So now that 50 and Cam are building their brands again – one has to wonder – will G-Unit and Dipset both come back and re-take the rap game? It seems it needs them – there’s just too much of that ‘knowledge’ rap, folks emulating Nas and dressing like hipsters.
