Still, all eyes dart toward the two headliners. Way before the release of Get Rich or Die Tryin', 50 Cent had been pegged as the next Jay-Z. And although "In Da Club" might very well be this year's most lethally seductive single, he hasn't yet made an album of top-to-bottom quality -- though perhaps we can give him props for calling Ja Rule "Cookie Monster" on one track. That leaves the crown still squarely on the head of Mista Jigga. Even if his Blueprint sequel is rampant with filler -- how could it not be, unfolding as it does over two discs? -- the MC has made his name as a world-class record maker and performer. And he didn't even have to die tryin'. Or, given 50 Cent's history with bullet wounds, is that try dyin'?
