50 Cent Gets Back to the Basics in ‘Hold On’ Video
It feels like 50 Cent’s departure from his longtime home of Shady/Aftermath and Interscope Records has revitalized his music output. Perhaps it’s some newfound creative freedom, but the New York rhymer sounds like his old self on the recently released singles, ‘Hold On’ and ‘Don’t Worry’ About It’ featuring Yo Gotti.
50’s succeeded so far in creating a buzz for his new album ‘Animal Ambition’ and continues that push with some visuals for the aforementioned ‘Hold On’ single.
The Eif Rivera-directed visuals mesh perfectly with 50’s laid-back, soulful production as he spits some vintage braggadocio lyrics. Fiddy raps, “Used to do graffiti, now look we major / Don’t make me write my name across your face with the razor / Re-up, new joke, they say this sample the bomb / This shit can take a two and we cut this bitch with a one.”
50 Cent’s new album ‘Animal Amibtion’ is scheduled to drop on June 3, but you can pick up the single ‘Hold On’ right now on iTunes.
