It’s funny how one terribly disappointing track can almost make you forget everything good-to-great that an artist has put out in a year’s time. In the case of 50 Cent, that happened last night when the L.A. Leakers premiered this new track, “I’m On It.” Look, we’re OK with him having fun and all as an MC. Hell, there are even flashes of that aggro-goofball we’ve grown to love on this track. But as a whole, this simply doesn’t work. The Cataracs’ bouncy synth-driven beat is too bare for 50, who can’t pull off spitting over this type of production. Lil Wayne could handle it with ease, though it would still be pretty corny. But 50? Nah.
