Don't know if your the dude who said he worked at violator or not but that wasn't story reported.


Lighty knew the chick from coca Cola who went to work with.Glaceau or some sh*t along them lines.

Light or James Cruz thought it would be better for stock rather than promo money.


I dunno how valid a third party reporting it is but every time 50 has talked about it in a interview he always gives the same story and that's that he discovered the drink by working out in the gym and then took it upon himself to buy stock because that's what he was interested in and told Chris Lighty to take care of the deal.

Of course I dunno if that's 100% true but it seems more valid coming from him than some third party celeb news site unless you have some Chris Lighty interview saying differently.

so Let me get this right. According to 50 critics, Chris lighty did all the work and connections and 50 was just the face?

Ya'll do know violator management managed even other artists outside of brand 50 right? If Chris lighty did EVERYTHING, why is Busta under ymcmb? Just perspective!

In business you have a network of people constantly around you. The best business people tend to be the one's who are able to hire those who can get things done and those with skills they lack. Just because Chris lighty closed the deals and made sure the admin is done, doesn't mean he discovered deals for 50. Guys business resume speaks for itself, vitamin water, brand gunit (Steve stout was at reebok at the time, so he is the guy that made reebok invest and target the urban market), cheetah films, sk energy, sms audio, sms promotions. Cheetah films had a $200million investment/advance for 10 Movies deal, did Chris lighty find that deal too? Get ya'll facts right before talking about ish ya'll know jack about. Some talking about being 1st yr college students. Gtfoh thinking that somehow Gives u business insight lil n*gga! You still got 0 experience in Any form of corporate business!

how are u measuring success? Highly subjective. Box office takings? That means 90% of all Indie studios are not successful and run by chumps including lionsgate when it started. He's been to cannes and has Movies under his own studio directed by Mario van peebles (who so happens to have directed new jack city and tons and tons of movies and tv shows, Dude is a legend), starred val kilmer, Bruce willis, Ryan Phillipe... But i guess success to guys on boxden is only measurable by sales. That to me is successful, at an average 20mill per film, dude has made huge inroads very quickly in the cutthroat Hollywood industry that has average blockbusters that spend 70-150million on blockbuster failures. Note before you respond that even scarface by Brian de palmer was a blockbuster flop back in 83, and not the only one. So is cheetah vision a success for an Indie studio? Hell yes. Answer your question?

You're arguing 50's business deals with someone, and the funny part is neither one of you n*ggas really know shyt about them.

Talkin bout "well his deal is structured in such a way..he sees residuals from China and it goes into an offshore account.."

What are you talking about?

I didn't know this was a "lemme hear you holla if you looooove 50 cent!" thread.

Plus, 50 sometime has insights, but to say hes somewhat of a genius, is a major oversight.

If he wasn't "50 Cent" he wouldn't be much. Hes a personality. He, himself, doesn't create much value in the world. Hes merely a face and he never admits that.

You see dudes who know how to play the backstage role or who actually create things? THEY are irreplaceable.

50 Cent is replaceable. But since hes got money, people take what he says as complete fact.

50's interview formula is to basically TELL his audience how hes going to r*pe them out of their rent money and then baffle them with the bullsh*t of why they were susceptible to his image.

Its really funny to watch.

The same dudes saying how smart 50 is are lining up to buy his energy drinks, buy his clothes, and cop his electronics...stuff he didn't create. All he did was promote it.

Dude isn't a businessman himself. HE is the brand. Thats why I don't listen to people who are tastemakers. They don't DO anything but try to convince you that they're more than what they are.

Notice, the people who are worth more that are REALLY valuable can never tell you enough.

Dudes like 50 that are merely entertainers can tell you EVERYTHING and you'll think you've heard it all. Because you have.

50 comes just short of saying, if my name is on it, you'll get excited and throw your money at it.

Elon Musk will always hold his real edge back and give you just enough to let you know how to do it yourself.

Theres a difference.

If you want to be like 50...go ahead...but don't think dude is "intelligent" above and beyond someone who creates things of tangible value.

again I'm not even going to go back and forth with a kid still wet behind the ears about life. You missed the entire crux of my post and chose to direct a defensive approach. Your accomplishments were listed as a way to somehow show u should be given some form of respect as far as your opinion goes. Since we talking about accomplishments, shouldn't you be listing something else that 1million+ ppl are capable of doing every single yr including what i did 9yrs ago? And about the business experience Google my username, you'll see it's linked to my own personal twitter handle Which has links to my company website. Just because i run a business doesn't mean i can't have a personal life interacting with ppl about the music i love. I'm still at an age where i grew up on the music you dumb lot dismiss as irrelevant, yet still relevant in terms of social conversations and social media interaction. Now what i do, that's an ACCOMPLISHMENT.

Lol you said you didn't care and i agreed with you now u getting emotional? My post is directed at the group (which seems to include yourself) that seemingly think the only reason the guy closing these deals was because lighty or stout found the perfect thoughtless puppet to make money off which is utter garbage. Chris lighty himself then should have got guys like Busta deals for days and he'd be his own boss, seeing he was also a violator artist. Don't like 50, hell don't like me for all i care, but don't distort ish just cos u lack understanding and ignorance, and when corrected going on an emotional tirade like a woman that just got dumped. I asked everyone in here, if lighty or whomever is closing deals for the puppet 50, what about all these other successful business ventures? He struck it lucky each and every time? Ok!

Damn 50 got alot of motivation in this thread... U know u hating when u try to find reasons for not acknowledging someones bussiness mind and moves, u know u hating when n*ggas give all the credit of ur success to sum1 else... So when Floyd was in jail, who was responsible for starting up SMS Boxing Promotions? What some n*ggas dont understand is u learn how to minuver when u in the industry, 50 allign himself with people for a reason, this n*gga capitalize by studying other peoples bussiness ventures and how he could gain from that by using his image to combine the 2 as a marketing tool... Its not rocket science, its SMART BUSSINESS!

And another thing thats funny is Dre didnt do sh*t when it comes to Beats By Dre yet he gets all the credit, Jimmy bought the rights, put Dre's name on that sh*t and a Chinese engineer built it, but its Dre's headphones... 50 got an idea for his own headphones, went to a company with the rights to technology that he bought, bought the engineering company, used his image and every media outlet as marketing and it became a success... So how the fucck is that not genius??? This n*gga is the boss of his own headphone, boxing, movie and energy drink company, this mafuccka is smart no matter what these haters say... And calling me a dicckrider wont change any of these facts
