We were so close. The War Angel LP revealed a musical ingenuity we thought 50 had long waved goodbye to. You can get it for free right now from Thisis50 (and you should). But was it wrong to relish in his anger? Way back in 2003, he kicked his way into our hearts with songs that sampled gun cocking. "I'll Do Anything" may not be the agro 50 we fell in love, but we still can't help but gush at the sight of him and Yayo dressed in Eric B. and Rakim costumes.
