  50 Cent, MP3 Music Download at eMusic
By the time of his third album (Curtis, 2007), however, 50 Cent faced a formidable backlash, particularly among hip-hop purists, who were displeased by his turn toward crossover pop-rap and thus away from street-level credibility.
During the successive months, 50 Cent worked closely with Eminem and Dre, who were both credited as executive produced on his upcoming debut, Get Rich or Die Tryin', each of them producing a few tracks for the highly awaited album.
The fallout from 50 Cent's overexposure was evident via the singles from the film soundtrack ("Hustler's Ambition," "Window Shopper," "Best Friend," "Have a Party"), which failed to gain much traction in the marketplace, charting modestly relative to past singles.

NEW YORK, 15 (UPI) -- Rapper 50 Cent says he is not prepared to concede his personal contest with fellow U.S. entertainer Kayne West over sales of their newly released CDs.
While 50 Cent trails West by six figures in sales of the rappers' newest albums, the "Get Rich or Die Tryin'" artist maintains the race is still in its early stages, Billboard reported Friday.
The new stance by 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III, comes after the rapper claimed he would retire if his new album "Curtis" did not sell better than West's new "Graduation" album.
