CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

Though he very well could be the rightful successor to the Biggie-Jigga-Nas triptych, Get Rich isn't quite the masterpiece 50 seems capable of, impressive or not. But until he drops that truly jaw-dropping album -- or falls victim to his own hubris -- this will certainly do.

Just go with the flow and enjoy Get Rich or Die Tryin' for what it is, not criticize it for not being what you want it to be.

Get Rich or Die Tryin' is so full of life, it makes you hope the only bullets 50 will need to fire from now on are metaphorical.

Pitchfork

As his character presently lacks the dynamism and depth required for that elusive gangsta magnetism that's a prerequisite for notoriety, 50 goes down as simply a decent MC with a wrenching back story, whose potential landed him a gig with the world's dopest beatmakers and the hype machine that shot the Great White Way into the pop culture stratosphere.

"This album is the most overrated of all time"
"People who think Get Rich is overrated are dumbasses"

Hasn't aged that well, but I'd be lying if I said it didn't have some bangers.
