I only gave this song a listen out of curiosity and to be honest, I am impressed, 50 Cent has not had the same impact since his debut Get Rich or Die Tryin’, he has been consistently succesful with his releases, however, the music lacked the same appeal, him as an artist (similar to Eminem) was not satisfying the real fans (who continue to grow tired of commercial music). His (free download) mixtape ‘War Angel’ offered audiences more of old school 50 cent, with the flow, content and feel of the record similar to his debut, he follows that with the new mixtape ‘Forever King’ (Click here to download Forever King FREE).
Taken from ‘Forever King’, Touch Me samples the classic ‘Touch Me, Tease Me by Case featuring Foxy Brown & Mary J. Blige. 50 Cent’s delivery on this is what impressed me, it just sounds so ‘raw’, his flow is consistent but without being boring, this sounds like the Get Rich or Die Tryin’ 50 Cent! Keeping Foxy Brown’s verse adds to the classic feel, with Case’s bridge and Mary J. Blige on the chorus, 50 manages to pull this version off well.
For a mixtape track..this is good, 50 Cent has a point to prove and cuts like Touch Me should help him prove it.
Heres the original:
