How can you be blackballed form the music industry if you have these thing already working for you:

Name recognition
Money....like real money
Internet
Ability to book your own shows

50 was very fortunate, he was at the right place at the right time in several instances, which led to him caking off in several ways. No one can blackball 50 out of the industry, he is scared to push independent. How you worth hundreds of millions and you waiting for some crackas to release your record?
n*gga put your own sh*t out like No Limit and Rap a Lot. P pulled that n*gga card years ago , and was 100% right about 50. Those white folks used 50. He made millions downing his own race, and they made billions. Now the n*gga is scared to leave the plantation. SMH

Bullsh*t. Plenty of rappers have made multiple hits without sellin out. Examples: Scarface, Geto Boys, Juvenile, B.G., Hot Boys, Big Tymers, DMX, Too Short, Public Enemy, Three 6 Mafia and others. U don't have to sellout to make it. Waka blew up without sellin out.
None of them had the same level of success as 50

You comment has nothing to do with the issues raised. SMH

...Especially not B.G. (His only solo 'hit' was 'Bling Bling--' Be serious, people), and Waka was a horrible example of 'blowing up.'

50 Cent is the man for his Street King campaign and generally an awesome and inspiring person.

fu*ked up but it's crazy how people thought it was cool & continue to think it's cool 50 was keeping n*ggaz from eating good, pushing Styles sh*t back & calling himself Mr. Interscope, you see it all the time, a dude think he's untouchable by basically kissing the bosses a.ss & then the boss fu*ks him over. Happens all the time in a work environment. Like the article said, he was feeling himself too much.

Nice read

Whats 50's contract situation with Interscope like? Does he still owe them albums? I'm just trying to figure out if he could go the independent route if he wanted to.

Juvenile and DMX did, especially DMX. X is one of the best selling rappers in rap history. They just did it when rap music was more of a taboo. And DMX and Juvy weren't sell outs so they weren't gonna go around endorsing sh*t, making video games and some of the other not-so street sh*t tht 50 did. They more loyal to the street sh*t.

And even then, DMX scored several movies that were more successful/memorable than all of 50's movies.

Tell me when they have 4 songs in the top 5 of the hot 100 at one time.

fif is the hungriest now ever since he blew up, if he is gonna come out with another hard hitting album, it will be now or never.

Nelly dropped his 5th album "5.0" in late 2010 and it moved 300K, he also dropped a single "Just A Dream" that went 3X platinum. 50-Cent hasn't had a platinum single since 2005.


Nelly can still crank out a hit song, poor 50 can't do that.
I Get Money x2 Platinum
Ayo Technology was even bigger nice try tho

So your a sell-out for " endorsing sh*t and making video games"?.

That kind of backwards thinking would get you no where.

400 Degreez is 4x platinum.

X first album is 4x platinum
X second album is 3x platinum
X third album is 5x platinum

The reason why they never had 4 songs in the top 5 is bcuz they weren't sellouts, which is the REASON why I mentioned them to begin with. Smarten up and learn to read.
Tell me when X sells 1.4 million in one week............
Tell me when X sells 12 million with one album.............
DMX is really successful but not as successful as fif.
