I think that played a part in 50's initial success. He'd realized the NY sound was fading at the time and added that southern bounce to his music.
"Blood Hound", "Poor Lil Rich", "Like My Style", "PIMP", "I'll Whip Your Head", all followed that formula. I'd love to hear these kind of records on Fif's next LP.
The sampled beats, and felt rhymes wouldn't hurt either though.
lol..when u hurt niggahs feelins in the past they still mad...smh..
If 50 predicted his southern voice would be a hit, how come he also couldn't predict his downfall? You're thinking too much into this. He was simply stating something about himself.
I'm not "thinking too much" into anything. I'm merely saying that aside from that Gucci Mane song he hasn't done anything with a southern feel to it since "I'll Whip Your Head", that was before "Curtis".
Maybe if he goes back to that sound by rapping over a Lex Luger beat or anything with southern sounding production, he might be able to get a foot back into the door.
