50 Cent "Hold On"

50 Cent 'Hold On'
New York rap veteran 50 Cent has broken free from his contract with Interscope, and plans to independently release his new Animal Ambition LP on June 3. Ahead of that, he's let loose new single "Hold On."

The smooth song is successful because it's so straightforward, seeing Fiddy drop some clever wordplay atop a subtle, soulful hip-hop beat. Rather than aiming for a pop crossover hit, he plays it simple and ultimately kills it.

Check out "Hold On" below. Starting next week, 50 Cent will be dropping a new song every Tuesday until May 20.
