"I Get It In" (CD single)
What parents need to know
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this song promotes all the wrong messages: irresponsible drinking, rationalizing bad behavior, and objectifying women. Not only that, but 50 Cent brags about partying hard seven days a week, a lifestyle that would send even the most hardcore rapper to rehab.
What's the story?
Produced by Dr. Dre, I GET IT IN is 50 Cent's second single released off of his fourth album Before I Self Destruct. The single features 50 Cent (known as "Fiddy") rapping about his propensity for intoxication and discusses his drunken exploits.
Is it any good?
"I Get It In" is the typical rap song that brags about partying prowess with lots of swagger and swing. Fiddy's lyrics are smooth and musically pleasant. His rhythmic verses flow easily, but his chorus of "Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, we get it in,
I need a drink, give me a drink" lacks the sophistication some of his rap peers show even on explicit albums. This one's for grown up fans only.
Families can talk about...
Families can talk about the mixed messages the media sends about drinking. Can you name some examples of ways the media promotes responsible alcohol use? How about examples in films, movies and music videos that celebrate excessive and irresponsible drinking?
