i dont like 50 as a rapper, but this bill has a lot of dough. But is it me or is it like news corp. is buying him out. G-Unit wont head anything anymore, its all gonna be under news. I dont know though, thats just my first speculation.
lol i guess you dont pay attention to that whole statement, if 50 will be the largest shareholder under news corp, he'll have a definate say in what goes on

Why isn't people getting bored with this dude?

All beef, all ego, all steroids. 50 cent as a person could've been so much more, he's intelligent and got a great business skills. With this deal the '50 cent trend' will continue...

I'm not hating. I just prefer artists that has a different mindset and does positive things for more then just themselves.

i hope ur not trying to say something along the lines of 50 is a better businessman then either of them



the resources were not available 12 years ago that r now

they made the path for guys like 50



i wonder how dre feels about this...dre & em actually


50 is somewhat of a good role model i cant believe i just said that, i believe its true tho


300 mill over 10 years = 30 mill a year


what is he averaging now before this deal??
Thats wasn't what I was implying but good points, nonetheless.

This deal is giving 50 a large stake in a publicly traded company. I don't think that they're are going to be many people with a 150 mil stake in the company. Sure News Corp is going to be running a lot, but 50 is going to have a STRONG voice in News. Corp. If you think about, it's a situation closer to 50 being his own boss than the one he's in now. Plus, now he'll be getting News Corp. money when they do other things too.
Man c'mon. No one is going to give you $300M to run THEIR company. The iffy part is the stock options. If 50 flops and gets stale (which has already happened) then he'll lose money on the stock part and that $300M will shrink down.

Newscorp. is trying to start brands and businesses with the 50 imprint on it but they are about 5 years too late. 50 had only 2 sucessful albums and 1 that did OK. G Unit is going the way of Cash Money and No Limit. But only time will tell if 50 can reinvent himself and become relevant again. His music is stagnant and repetitive. He needs to switch it up and whatever happened to him retiring from rap?

That's my only beef with these so called business men rappers. If they were such great business men they wouldn't have to rap anymore. Russell Simmons is a great business man. Is he doing anything music related now? NO. Is he still caking up? YES.

Signing a deal that branches you out a little but still is all based on you selling records and touring isn't some great business venture. Vitamin water was a great business venture. This sh*t and the deal Jay-Z signed were just some ol' mega record deals with sh*t on the side since albums aren't selling like they used to.

I guess you didn't pay attention to that whole statement.

At least half of the deal will be in stock. 50 Cent will be one of the largest shareholders of News Corp. when the deal is done.


As I said you are not going to give someone $300M to run your company. He will be a large shareholder and have some influence but best believe they will keep him in his place. And if he flips and tries to bring them down he'll just be hurting his own wallet.

not sure why they would give him a deal like that, maybe when he first came out yeah but he's struggling to go platinum and the g-unit projects have been flopping and the clothing brand was a failure so why give a n*gga on his way out a 10 year deal lol i swear corperate america is always late with sh*t. good deal for 50 though no doubt i hope it goes through, even though i think 50 is straight trash on the mic (actually beyond trash) but i will never hate on a n*gga makin his money

Man the industry is going nuts ... dumping in tons of money like this into a "RAP" artists ..... in a genre thats dying rapidly, and to an artist who respectably has earned everything to this point . He and rap wont sell and doesnt sell anymore.

Im not expert in marketing but i do know a thing or two and im closely related to peoples interests and the markets strong and weak points .

But no one is going to pay any form of money for a 50 cent book or g unit material , the clothing line is a pertaining failure ,right now you wont find hardly anyone actually buying that sh*t anymore . If you are one of those people , go check out your thrift store , i bet you'll find TONS and TONS of gunit sh*t.

i think that these deals are big wastes of money, i dont know anyone whos buying the mineral water and the sales have been incredibly low. The point and fact of matter is the industry is way behind .

Its the very reason they fail to adapt to new media and even mp3s to this point is a complete and utter mystery to them. they still dont know how to handle piracy and fair treatment of the people. They still fail MISERABLY at quality control in music and not just jumping on the bandwagon of every single 1 hit wonder artist every time. THey still sign these goofballs if you could imagine ..

So you know what , i personally have no financial connection / benefit or profit from the likes of mpaa or myspace or coke etcc... so i absolutly dont give half a sh*t on what they do with their money or if they go bankrupt...

but if i was ceo or the president , the axe would be dropping on heads like a fu*king pioneer village massacre....


bunch of idiots really ... in my opinion ... all power to 50 for suckering the industry into senseless nonesense ...

I think its funny how people keep trying to convince themselves that dude is trash by declaring it in every thread. Yet I don't see any other rappers doing what dude is doing besides Jay-z.

Tell those South Africans that flooded the airport when this dude touched ground that he's flopping or on his way out. That sh*t looked like some Michael Jackson footage. When you can do that just by touring, what is a platinum record? n*gga Michael Jackson aint never got to sell a record again, but he'll sell out a stadium in minutes. If 50 is in route to doing the same thing, why not invest into that?

Like dude said in a Smack interview..."while ya'll sitting around arguing about who raps good and the best I'm hanging with people who told me my vitamin water deal was cute, now its time for you to get some serious paper".

This and the Jay-z deal is just proving that Record deals are now just for lil n*ggas. Its all about the generation of interest FLAT OUT. Jay-z couldn't even sell more than one of his artist last year, BUT WHO GOT THE 150 million deal? Tell your favorite rapper to put the mic down for a minute so they can catch up.
