In his feature-film acting debut, 50 Cent portrays a ''character'' who makes good on the same gangs-to-riches glory story as the man himself. So it's hardly surprising that the accompanying 18-song Get Rich or Die Tryin' Soundtrack — which features six new solo tunes from 50 Cent — exhibits all of the standard G-Unit talking points: guns, gaudiness, and girls. Although 50 shows a deft touch on tracks like ''Hustlers Ambition'' and ''Window Shopper,'' the album loses momentum when it's handed over to his less-than-competent partners in rhyme.
