Oh yeah. 50 is a great business man. I would never argue that.
But he's a terrible promoter/marketer since he plans everything around HIMSELF. He's not the guy you want managing your career. He doesn't treat his artists as future superstars. He treats them as members of HIS squad. (The same problem Mystikal had with Master P. Mystikal wasn't signed directly with Master P. He was in the same situation as Game. He was with Jive and they were using P as a cosigner like they did with Game/50) 50 even clowns his own artists on twitter and in interviews. Treats them like a joke.
But financially, he's prolly the best rapper/ceo out there.
He built everything around G-Unit. G-Unit clothing, G-Unit sneakers, G-Unit.. etc. Of course most of the attention is gonna be on him because he's the one who came out first. If he didn't put them on songs, help them with hooks, take them on tour, etc.. what would people say then? Probably the same sh*t they say about Jay. " He doesn't push his artists. He don't want n*ggas to shine. "
