50 doing better than most of the rap game, he's being held to his absurdly high standards of when he first came into the game. Yea he fell off, but where he landed is still better than most rappers will ever be.

murder By Numbers, The Lost Tape, and The Big 10 are all nice. How could someone drop 3 good mixtapes in a year and be washed up?
out of all of those the big 10 was the best and it was average

Lol...to school ya a little, I'm not so sure I'd say homie is doing "OK" from just airplay royalites. 2012's latest royalty rate of airplay is about 5.22 cents per play. How many times do you really hear that song on the radio like that?? I track airplay licensing for my south-east region for my job, and because it's not a popular song, MAYBE he's getting 2-3 plays per week in my region's scans, if he's lucky. Lemme show you an example of how the royalties pay-out would break down.

**To be extremely 'nice', I'll pretend he's earning a round-number "10 plays" per week, per US region (south-east, mid-eastern coast, north-east, north lakeside mid-west, central mid-west, south-texas, north-west, mid-western bay coast, & south-west).

That's 9 national regions x 10 plays per week x 4 weeks per month = 360 regional plays per month

[Tony Yayo has a publishing deal with ASCAP - under the title head 'Yayo Music Publishing', that ironically, 50 Cent owns a 49% ownership share of; now by defintion - ASCAP pays every 4 months, BMI pays every 3 months.]

Therefore, extrapulating the "360 regional plays per month" x 4 months = 1440 unique royalty-based plays. With the current rate, 5.2 CENTS x 1440 plays = 7,488 CENTS, or $74.88

> THEN, Uncle Sam (IRS) takes out their gov tax of 6% (lower fiscal bracket) = about $4.49

> SO, $74.88 - $4.49 = $70.39 for a 4-month ASCAP payment period.

> NOW, 50 Cent takes his 49% publishing share out, which is $34.49.

> Leaving behind TONY YAYO's ASCAP airplay royalty check of...(drum-roll)...
= $35.90 for a 4-month payout period.


This is what Sean Price was complaining about when he went solo, getting $10-$20 ASCAP checks every 4-months. The money business from music only comes when you get a certified massive hit, and then the tour/show money that follows that popularity. [Example - BOB's "Airplanes" first-month was pulling in & scanning 3,700,000-3,900,000 national plays per week = equalling out to about a $793,400 check for the first 4-month ASCAP pay period]. Yayo (and the rest of G-Unit ain't really getting play like that now on American radio. And for dude above me, when Game left, Buck's tax situation, and Yayo having to file Chapter 11 - are all proof of them being "broke". Maybe not poverty BROKE, but fact that they ain't getting money like you think.

Learn the game, before you claiming someone is balling or even doing ok financially. #SmartenUp

yayo obviously isn't the best lyricist but that GPG was crack.

all of g unit were hungrier before they got their deal but i still respect them for a lot of the good albums/mixtapes they've given us. not all of them were hot (everybody has duds in their catalog somewhere) but they do have classics that some ppl dont want 2 acknowledge.
