Definitely 50 Cent. The hype around him stood out way more than the hype around DMX. I mean 50 gettin shot nine times alone was almost more hype than X got

Aside from Snoop, there aren't many rappers who were buzzin like 50

Ironically all connected to Dre
Man, I keep hearing about Snoop in this thread. Can someone shed some light?

A part of me wants to relive the G-Unit era. I get a natural high reminiscing about it

OP should seriously blow his fu*king brains out. I first day copped both albums, and I was a 9 year old white boy for It is dark hell is hot, had no issue finding the album. I had my mom pick me up at school at lunch for GRODT and I didn't find a copy till 5:00 PM.

They both still own records for album sales. This is probably one of the closes comparisons in hip hop. I'd side with X but it's hard to argue with 50.

Ok, so 50 had more hype around his album than X...

But X's album had a bigger IMPACT on hip hop and culture than GRODT.
Exactly why I side with X. He's more respected in the core culture of hip-hop than 50. But 50 branched off to casual hip-hop fans more.

Bruh this sh*t isn't even close

50 dropped In Da Club and it was over. Dipset and Hov both dropped classics that same year and it was like that sh*t didn't even matter

Why do you think Hov told Beans & Bleek to flood the market with music???

50 without even thinking on it...seen both blow and had Fifty did what DMX did he wouldn't be who he is today and vice versa...50 went from nothing to something in the fastest span ever...he was also one of the few artist who was skilled enough at all areas of music and life to make the most of it.

DMX would be dead if blew like 50 did.
