50 Cent clearly loves his independent status. Although we’re two months away from his upcoming Animal Ambition, we’ve already heard at least three tracks and the G-Unit leader refuses to let up, releasing a Dr. Dre-produced single called “Smoke.”
The track features Curtis comparing a femme fatale to bombudd in a way that doesn’t make or break the overall vibe, while Trey Songz confidently croons the hook and third verse. The beat by Dre features his typically refined style, but with bigger lead synths and a surprising lack of low-end.
Overall, the single is mediocre at best, but carries some quality cache in headline form, which why we don’t have to wait until the album hits shelves on June 3 to listen.
