still remember that sh*t like it was yesterday.

No rapper will ever have a buzz that big again. 50 came into the game and just shook everything up.

Never seen anything like it before that, haven't seen anything like it since.


i remember being a freshmen in high school when that joint dropped. That was before the majority of n*ggas knew how to get music free, or early.

n*ggas was cutting class to cop that joint, to make sure they was up on it.

the only thing that could beat the buzz fif had in 03 for this album - is if Pac revealed himself and said his album would be in-stores tommorow. PERIOD.

This was ur sales were translated from hype. He had the image, the story, the lyrics, and the backing of eminem and dre... Then wanksta was his first single? I think he was like the only gangsta rapper in a while that had females wearin shirts wit him on it and knowin all his songs, screamin gggg g unit!! Plus, the streets was behind him 100% and him walkin in elevators wit bulletproof vests and hats and gun? That made sh*t super offical lol I think that's y eminem wasn't scared to talk sh*t to n*ggas like how he did on patiently waitin, he had 50 backin him. So him selling that much for the first week is no surprise. Nowadays n*ggas have hype and a big hit and hype but only sell like 30,000 records smh. But eminem show went platinum n one week and was released early Friday...first artist to do dat!

Biggest hype of hip hop history when that dropped. The hype from that album was and will never be matched again in hip hop.

no they weren't

let's not get ahead of ourselves....radio fu*king sucked back then...which is why 50 was such a breath of fresh air in the midest of that soft a.ss R&B influenced sh*t that Ja Rule, Nelly, LL, Fabolous and even Jay-Z were running into the ground at the time.


BTW, it's kinda funny that people are calling this a "real hip hop" album now......back when it dropped it was almost the exact opposite, and n*ggas like Talib Kweli, Common, Mos, and The Roots were the "real hip hop" artists

This sh*t is about 50 why ya'll n*gga want to bring other rap n*ggas in this sh*t??? Can't s-t-a-n some of u n*ggas....

But this sh*t was so crazy!!!

Radio stations would play this sh*t from start to finish the week it dropped...

I even remember going to [parties and the Dj would just put the Album on and play the whole sh*t out..everyone would sing every song word for word....I dont think we as hip-hop fans will ever experience anything like that ever again
