I really thought CURTIS’ career was over, and Soundscan figures for his recent release Before I Self Destruct would agree. Hov outsold 50 this week, even though Blueprint 3 was released more than two months prior. Perhaps he has already self destructed.

But in the opinion of your humble narrator, this is easily the best material 50 has put out since 2005’s The Massacre. After a few weeks in rotation, I’ve come away impressed. Mr. Jackson will never be confused with Rakim when it comes to lyrical prowess, but he is touching on a wider variety of topics and has certainly showed progression as an emcee.

Here is the official video for his latest single, “Do You Think About Me?” The track is solid, but the video shines, especially if you are familiar with the background. The video features a trio of high-profile rappers’ ex-girls, namely Nate Dogg’s former boo Tamala Jones, ex-Joe Budden jump-off Tahiry, and surprisingly 50’s own blast from the past, Vivica A. Fox. Regardless of your opinion of 50, no one can argue that the man doesn’t have some serious gall.

Bonus: Another slept on gem from Curtsy. The iTunes bonus from his last LP Curtis.
