You're missing the point.

Its the fact that 50 Cent is a commodity talking about being a commodity.

Its EXTREMELY contrived.

Plus, branding isn't sh*t if YOURE the brand. Branding matters when you brand ENTITIES and THINGS.

Branding people works in the short run. Longevity is established when you brand something that exists outside of you.

lol, is that so?

Tell that to Jay Z, Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Diddy, Dr Dre, Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga, Usher.

It is not coincidence that the artist at the top are the ones who have a personal brand then create brand extensions.

You have no idea what you are talking about.

The fact that celebs talk about "branding" and that fans talk about OTHER people's branding is hilarious to me.

You're basically talking about the process of being suckered into someones aura and admitting that you are willingly being suckered into someone else's aura.

Branding?

Its the same as people talking about album sales as if that sh*t matters to the consumer...just more lip service to make the fans feel like they're apart of the industry, when they're not.
this will go over alot of heads

What brand sneakers are you wearing? Shirt? Jeans? What school you go to? What restaurants do you eat at? What shows do you watch? What cellphone do you have?

Every one of those things are marketed and branded in a way to sucker you into buying into them.

You're no different than those who speak on it.

50 gave him the idea.


none of these artists, other then game because he left g-unit pretty quickly have really ever tryed to do anything with out 50.

its like memphis bleek syndrome, people are too comfortable with how things are working but cant see the big picture.

and dont act like 50 couldnt of just been like hey im a rapper ill be dre and eminems rapper forever and be content with that. he never was and always tryed to find different avenues. there really is no way possible to hate on 50's business ethic, its actually very motivational for anybody tryna get it.


Buck is trying but 50 wont let him out of contract so come again...

Bullsh*t. Yes you can hate. 50 doesnt want anyone outshining him period and its been clear since Game, then it was Buck. Hell look at his antics now. This bi*chass n*gga is acting like a girl right now...no, a ho. Dude is all broken up over Floyd so he hates. Shunned by Keef so he hates.

Yeah he was also just starting Cashville records with the Outlawz and C-bo on it, well not sure about c-bo but I heard his name mentioned with some other acts I think 615 or some sh*t. He was also just starting up his own clothing line David Brown clothing. Then the n*gga got on stage with Lil Wayne and Birdman, he brang Jeezy out on one of his shows and some other sh*t.

50 got mad, kicked him out the group, claimed he was a crackhead and said he expected a diss from buck knowing the type of character that he is. G-unit talks smack on radio interviews, Buck disses 50. 50 releashes a private taped conversation and then stops Bucks career for the next 5 years by refusing to let him release any material offically. Artist want a feature from Buck, 50 had to authorise it, 50 shut them down and wouldn't let Buck release any music. 50 stopped him from making money but then said he wants the money he was owed but won't let him make money??? Didnt 50 say the reason he never went after Game hard is because he didn't want to mess up his money? but he owned more of Buck but didn't care about his money.

50 had Buck accountant stop paying his new taxes, Buck got raided by IRS and they found gun and that's the reason he in prison now. But before he went prison he heard Buck saying he looking ways to get out the contract so he can release music. 50 cent call his laywers to set up some sh*t that Buck would get sued for $10 million dollars if he tries to breach his g-unit contract by leaving it without fulfilling his 5 album deal.....WTF

50 a snake a.ss n*gga, he always wanted followers. To the general public he wants to appear innocent, but he a snake a.ss n*gga fu*king over crews using best friends, baby mamas, brothers or who ever it be behind the scenes to get his way. Even his baby mama claimed he burned down the house he didn't want her to have as she got a new man, plus he signed the rights to his son away years ago....oh yeah he also signed his baby mamas life story to g-unit books so she can't release sh*t on him either lol 50 the biggest snake in the Game

People that don't play in the NBA or NFL talk about stats. So why can't we talk about sales?
Stats are relevant to an athletes talents, their stats mean something.

The relationship between sales and artistic talent isn't really the same. You can't say someone is a good artist based on their record sales.

My point is this: Be a fan of the music and thats it.

I don't take entertainment more seriously than just that. Entertainment

If they wanted to change the world, they'd be writing books and giving talks.

All this "industry" talk is bullsh*t for the same crowd who gets hype off of album sales numbers so it makes them feel like they're "apart of the win"
ignorance
