Trying to get the creative juices flowing as he waits for the perpetually-delayed Before I Self Destruct to finally drop, 50 Cent has decided to return to the gritty underground style that first earned him respect in the NYC streets. To that end, he will be releasing three underground, pre-album mixtapes—the first of which, the War Angel LP, hits the Net on Tuesday at 9PM EST. 50’s hardcore roots are on full display on the LP’s third track, Redrum (Murder). I dare you to name another rapper who can put together lyrics as grimy and hard-hitting as the rhymes 50 spits over Nascent and QB Da Problem‘s sample of LaToya Jackson’s Does It Really Matter! Though the War Angel LP‘s tagline warns us to “Prepare for Total Destruction,” a more realistic outcome would be the restoration of 50 Cent’s alienated fanbase—something he desperately needs in anticipation of his fourth LP’s tentative September release.
