Single Review: 50 Cent feat Eminem & Adam Levine-My Life

50_cent_my_life_feat_eminem__adam_levine_single_cover_jpg50 Cent has been more dime than half dollar of late. With delayed albums, record label feuds and a string of singles with mediocre chart performance, nine times shot fiddy has seemed incapable of another hit, until now.

 Featuring Eminem and Maroon 5 frontman/murder victim in American Horror Story Adam Levine, the track sees 50 Cent get a little reflective about his career, promising fans he’s gonna pull a Slim Shady and drag himself back t the top: “This is my recovery/my comeback in”.

Adam Levine’s hook is a good one, it adds atmosphere to the song, but his high vocals seem to grate on the masculinity of Jackson and Mathers, something that becomes less apparent as time goes on.

Eminem is as great as always. Rapping in the spotlight of a helicopter his fast flow and savage rhymes make the song his, and tempts the listener into sticking Recovery back on.

50 Cent has never been a favourite of ours, but this song is alright. Perhaps not a hit, but definitely a rung on the ladder back to the top.
