HOW DOES A SONG FLOP?????AND WHOS ALBUMS DONT GET PUSHED BACK ITS MARKETING DUDE


sh*t HAD AS MANY REMIX'S THAN A MILLIE THAT SONG WAS THE SONG OF THE YEAR


HE STILL WON


NAME 2 RAPPERS OTHER THAN KNAYE AND 50 WHO WENT PLAT THAT YEAR AND ALSO 2 RAPPERS THAT SOLD MORE THAN THERE FIST RECORDS THAT YEAR OR THIS YEAR
First...why are you writing in 5 different colors?

And with the platinum thing, 50 is held to a higher standard.

But yeah...a single flops when it doesn't chart as high as it is supposed to. As in every single 50 fully released were in the top 10 on the Billboard 100 at some point.

On Curtis...Straight To The Bank topped out at 35 and Amusement Park didn't even chart...I Get Money's highest position was 20. I'll Still k!ll came at 95.

50's main objective in this game is to be commercially successful...which brings more money. It seems as if not many people want to listen to him at all.

50 milked every cent out of being "gangsta" and now he doesn't know what to do with his success. He can't grow musically like Kanye and Outkast because all he ever talked about was beefin and being gangsta. But nobody cares about him beefin anymore because he's on top. It's like people dont care to see goliath beating up david but people want to see david slaying goliath. And he can't be gangsta anymore because he has too much money for people to believe he's still gangsta. All he raps about is money which gets really old. Dude just needs to quit rapping and invest his money before he lowers his own stock.
so he needs to autotune the next album? kanye's new sh*t sucks hard...

i agree with the rest of the post tho, except nobody wants to hear about his money. isnt that why cash money records is even known outside the south? all they did (besides truk) was say how much money they got...and white folks all over ate that sh*t up. YOU AND ME might be tired of it, but THEY arent. next album goes double plat


and in case that didnt answer the question...he has a looong time before u dont hear from him again. even if he gets really bad *coughmaster pcough* he can still finance almost as many albums as he wants to put out. so he can make trash music all day every day

50 Cent has beaten off competition from international superstars Madonna and Beyonce Knowles to top a chart of this year's biggest earning musical performers.

The rapper and entrepreneur brought in an estimated $151 million from June 2007 to June 2008, according to U.S. magazine Forbes.

British rockers The Police came second on the money list; their reunion tour helped net the band $115.8 million.

50's rap rival Jay-Z came third, bagging $82.6 million, while his pop star wife Knowles was just behind with $80.5 million.

And The Beatles proved they are still a big draw almost 40 years since splitting up - the Fab Four made $51.6 million, placing them fifth on the earnings list.

all these f*g**t 50 stans only use sales as a defense.
The threadstarter asked if his 'career' is dead. Why wouldn't anyone use sales as a defense?

His career is far from over when he's the highest paid music artist of the year.



You lames need to stop hating on people's music who don't enjoy. That's just as lame in itself.

No, because he's still a dominant music artist world wide.
No he's not, he hasn't put out a significant song in a long time. Nothing on Curtis was that great.

you're kidding right? he's the highest paid entertainer but it's not off his music. I mean no-one said he wasn't making money and being a good business man but his music career is falling off hard.

he went from 9 million to 1 million in less then 5 years
I hit y'all n*ggas with facts and y'all still find someway to hate or try and seem right. How are you falling off when your the highest paid music artists out of every genre including pop. fu*k outta here. You a lame a.ss n*gga. And to be more acurate, he went from 12 million to 9 million to 5 million. Every artists sales have been declining. 50 still manages to sell more then Kanye, Jay, Wayne, T.I., etc. So is his "career" falling off? no. If this thread was about the quality of his music, this would be a way different conversation. But you lost. Now take the L, bi*ch.

The quality of 50's music translated to commercial success.

TOS is not commercial success.
Get Up is not commercial success.

When 50 does 300,000 in his first week and is talking bout "oh the climate changed...i still sold 4 million to germans" ...I'mma laugh. That's a cop out.

And yes, I know 300,000 is more than mad n*ggas can wish for. Think if Lebron started averaging 20 points a game...alotta n*ggas wish for that too.
