One of my fondest memories as a teenager growing up over here in the UK, was the fact that whenever a new US rap artist brought a CD out, at least one person I knew would've bought it, meaning I was always in the loop when it came to the latest music. One CD that I actually went out and bought on the day it released was 50 Cent's Get Rich Or Die Trying. Man, from the moment I heard "In Da Club" as the lead single, I knew that I HAD to get the album when it dropped. From there, stemmed my love for all things Fiddy and G-Unit, and although in recent years his output hasn't been entirely strong, he's still dropped a couple bangers here and there.
This week we were treated to the release of 50's latest mixtape, The Kanan Tape, and along with it a new collaboration with one of the industry's hottest talents, Post Malone. The "White Iverson" star lends his vocal talents for a nice verse over the simplistic Scoop Deville production, showcasing his knack for making that catchy rap-come-singing style. As for 50, well he comes through with a strong verse, with his signature flow coming to the forefront, as he raps about keeping his circle small and being surrounded by people trying to do him dirty.
You can stream the bumpin' "Tryna Fuck Me Over" above, and if you're feeling what you're hearing you can download the entire mixtape over HERE.
