French Montana Comments On 50 Cent's Music Career Being Stifled By Beef With Other Artists

French Montana says beef is bad for business when it comes to 50 Cent, comments on the past beef between Lil Wayne and Pusha T.

G-Unit head honcho 50 Cent is no stranger to beef, from a good natured album sales battle with Kanye West to his past, turbulent riffs with former G-Unit members including Game and Young Buck, beef has always seemed to makes it way to the Queens rapper.

While 50 Cent may not be too concerned with his past issues with artists, fellow New York City spitter French Montana recently spoke on Fifty’s rap beef being bad for business and the reason why he believes Rick Ross has become more successful than the rapper.

“I feel like beef hurt him. I feel like it helped Ross unite people,” Montana explained during an interview with Complex.com. “That’s why Maybach Music is one of the biggest labels. It just makes sense…Of course, Ross is on his fifth album. And like I said, he’s only getting bigger. This is going to be Ross’ first platinum album. He never went platinum. So when 50 came up, 50 sold 10 million. Then after his first album he just kept on going down. You think 50 could come out and sell 10 million now?”

The “Stay Schemin” rapper took somewhat of a contrary view when speaking on the past beef between G.O.O.D. Music artist Pusha T and Young Money’s Lil Wayne, stating that the issue between those two artists was “good” for Hip Hop.

“For some people it’s competition for them. It’s good for hip-hop…Yeah. Pusha T and Lil Wayne's [beef] ain’t nothing serious,” said the rapper. “If Wayne feels like [it’s real beef] then you know Baby would have got involved. Things like that, it’s good for hip-hop. If nobody got shot, it ain’t beef.”

Although an exact date has yet to be revealed, French Montana still plans on releasing his debut album Excuse My French before the year is up.

So Jay-Z and Eminem's album sales reduced because they had beef with artists in the past? He's talking a lot for someone that can't get 1000 downloads on iTunes by himself.

How many records sales has all of French Montana's unity produced?


And this might be Ross's lowest selling album of his career. French is talking a bunch of non-sense. 50 hasn't been selling good because he hasn't been able to have the huge singles cross over like he did in the beginning of his career. It's as simple as that.

French Montana is speaking the truth based on the available data at hand:


GRODT = 8 million
The Massacre = 5 million
Curtis = 1 million
BISD = 500K



If you invest all your energy in beefing with Ja-Rule, Diddy, Fat Joe, Game, Young Buck, JayZ, Ross, Khaled Young Buck, Styles P, Jadakiss, Nas and every other relevant rapper......you could have focused that energy on making music that the fans want to support and embrace.


Clowns that build their careers on beef and division usually end up without a relevant career and no buzz.

n*gga you left out literally millions in sales from other projects. If it only sold/was popular because of 50 it should be included. Like the Get Rich soundtrack. G-Unit group albums. etc.

This.
50 had a great run, not many artists can stay relevant as long as he did and make that much money. If i was 50, i would be perfectly fine with how everything worked out.

I dont think beef really messed up 50's career, average sales went down and so did his quality of music with each album. Anyways on all his latest projects theirs at least a few gems so i'm good with what he's doing right now.

I didn't leave out anything related to the point I was trying to make.


50-Cents rap-career as a solo-artist has been one long downhill spiral in terms of popularity because he chose the path of division instead of unity.


Most rappers have catalogs that show a consistent fan base that support their albums but
50-Cent is a rare artist who loses a minimum 500K fans with each album he drops.



You can blame the sales decline on illegal downloading and adjust the figures based on the economy but the fact remains that a rapper went from 8 million fans to 500K fans over the course of 4 albums.
