Before I Self Destruct has been out for over a year and still is not gold; he also has not been keeping his name out there either and we all know how forgetful rap people can be

Actually, I think interscope paid to get it its Gold Certification, it didnt sell over 500K but It pushed it so I think he has a plaque at his crib for it

As for his career in rap, yeah its over but I doubt he cares, 50 was always in this for the money and the music Buisness is a laughable joke now, the biggest star in the world can only sell Triple Platinum..............Think about that, Em had the best selling album of the year in 2002 & 2010, but the Numbers in 2002 were over 8 Million and the numbers this year were a lil over 3..........

A guy like 50 see's that and starts caring less about music, he's a buisnessman, he'll probably still rap to keep his name out there so it helps him get involved in his next side venture, but I doubt he gives a fuck what it does or what people think of it, selling music nowadays isnt a serious buisness, everybody going broke and gettin in tax trouble and what not..........If 50 makes another music video it will be to advertise his new shoes or whatever the fuck he's selling to make his real money

Move over Dr. Dre…50 Cent is ready to take over the high end
headphone game with Sleek by 50 Cent Headphones. One cool feature is
that four pairs of these headphones can listen to the same audio
source at once.

the only niggas that stopped fuckin with 50...

are the same niggas that bought multiple copies of GRODT, and creamed their pants over him gettin clapped in the backseat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

they are now onto other things, enjoying the flavor of the month....

the long time fans..

that saw POTD, and the initial mixtape run...

are still here...

50 did it bigger than anyone in a short period of time... got paid, built an empire, and parlayed his music career, into something bigger than anyone couldve imagined...

hes also one of the ONLY artist/ceo/label heads... to actually give artists a fair shake...

and a real platform to pop...

easily one of the best bosses in music!!!!!!!!!!!!!

50 still drops dope shit, ontop of running a swollen empire...

so obv the passion for making music is there...

hes one of the msot hated ever...

when hes factually, one of the more genuine personalities, to hit it big... commercially...

son is gettin 200 million dollar advances, producing/writing/directing films...

so even when hes not out in front, hes still making power moves...

200 mil advance, is unheard of... thats TRUST...

thats a long history, of flipping shit into sugar....

i cant do nothing but respect the nigga!!!!!!!!!!!!

Read today, Val Kilmer is starring in a movie 50 wrote. It's coming out soon.

angry!
01-10-2011, 06:32 PM
thats funny robby...

val and fif must be friends...

val is fucked up...

he went from leading man...

to chubby straight to DVD star on coke.... FAST!!!!!!!!!!!

that movie with fif and val... in new orleans... was TERRIBLE...

i think fif is a terrible actor...

BUT...

theres no doubt in my mind he wil keep working at it, and hell do whatever needs to be done, to make those movies pop...

yall know how 50 had the cologne right?!?!?!!?!?

well he got kim kardashian signed up... through a company he formed...

and put a fragrance out...

so kim k fans... are puttin money in 50 cents pocket... without even knowin it....

tahts a HUSTLER...

even if you hate his music, watch how he moves...

its inspiring!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i couldnt stand MASTER P music, but i respect the fuck outta that nigga...

that dude... was and is....a fuckin BOSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

and the game he laid down, is still being emulated today...

200 million dollar advance, multi film deal...

if he turns a profit, which goin by his track record... seems likely...

this nigga is gonna be HOGGING shit, crackin heads in a different format...

adapt... and conquer...

from the block to the office...

real MOVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i think fif got a real future writing movies, b4isd movie packaged with the CD, was a good little hood flick... on bare bone budget, and limited time...

plus i respect fif, for telling iovine to go fuck himself...

as dre and em, still dont move ANYWHERE... without jimmy!!!!!!!!!!!

he told that rich fuck to back off...

i wouldnt be suprised if iovine is throwing weight around, against fif, behind the scenes...

the industry needs more niggas like 50 cent, real boss niggas that dont backdown...

Angry going in on some serious real talk in this thread.


I will always respect 50 he came from the streets and was/is a real dude straight up. he's probably one of the most inspiring street hustlers in the game. he's what jay-z would like you all to believe he was

and yeah he's rich so the streets are behind him but like angry said that's exactly what he set out to do and he did it and crushed the rap game and now he's making straight power moves and caking heavy with all these business ventures and shit. I just read that stock in those headphones have soared since 50 announced getting behind the project. and these investors arent dumb 16 year old kids buying into the shit these are serious business men who know that whatever 50 touches will quite possibly go gold. Now I dont like a lot of his newer music because it's a little too radio friendly and pop for me but his grimey tracks are fuckin some of the best cause the things he says is believable and you know he knows what's he's talking about so he gets my respect any day of the week for what he's accomplished and where he came from.

plus he's a fuckin funny ass dude that guy cracks me up when he's going at people. ever since i heard him call irv gotti a fat cupcake eatin ma'fucker on cocaine dreams i thought that was jokes lol i also agree that his movies and acting generally suck but still what other rappers are making moves like that?


threadstarter is kind of a fag btw

50 Cent moves markets

The share price for stock in H&H Imports, Inc. went up 290% (http://www.google.com/finance?q=OTC:HNHI) between the close of market on Friday to the end of the day today. The reason for the move? Entertainer/investor 50 Cent, who owns a portion of the tiny company, tweeted all weekend (http://twitter.com/#%21/50CENT) about how enthusiastic he was about the company's success. (He also appeared on CNBC.) By one calculation (http://www.businessinsider.com/50-cents-hnhi-tweets-2011-1#), 50 made $10 million with those tweets.

His career is done. He's been doing straight to video movies now and most of them aren't good LOL. I saw his movie with Val Kilmer and Sharon Stone and it isn't that good. I did like his movie with Samuel Jackson and Jessica Biel. Righteous Kill movie he did with Robert Deniro and Al Pacino is good. I bought that a few weeks ago. I wanna check out his mixtapes because i know they're better than his albums LOL. That's good he's doing business ventures. He has Puff Daddy, Russell Simmons, Jay-Z, Master P to thank for that because they helped pave the way for rappers to get money doing other things selling products. Rappers can't rap forever. So it's good for them to get involved in other things like movies and selling products so they can make some extra money.

As for 50 the only rapper that I think is remotely alright from that camp is game.... As far as em, 50 and the rest .....Its like mhhh whatever !!!!!!!!!!.


Real 90`s rappers are lucky in a way that they still get props....These plastic rappers that have emerged since the start of 2000 are all bunk.

the last ten years of rap music has been the worst in its history.

50's music career? Yeah, probably, unless he plans on throwing a whole lot of cash in it to rejuvenate it. He's boring as shit nowadays, so who really gives a fuck though?


the last ten years of rap music has been the worst in its history.


It's not like rap got a very long history though.. You pretty much only got three options. You could debate the seventies, but what excactly did we get from the seventies? Rapper's Delight?

Personally, 2000s >> eighties.

This.

Mad heads in here got tunnel vision. The success of your career is measured by the moves you make not by spot light.

Besides 50cent has a single out right now with that birthday sex r&b kid and its one of the most popular songs out right now. 50 also been up on remix versions of whatevers popular, that like a g6 song remix he did is everywhere. It seems like hes gettin way more spins right now then he was when he released his last album.
