I don't think you can say it's the end for someone who sold 660, 000 in their first week.. 50 is on a nice downward trend though..

Yes he sold 660k...but he also put in more marketing than ever. 6 singles before the album releases? The amount of publicity and advertising dollars he and Interscope put in?

The thing is, no company is going to agree to put the same amount of PR dollars in for a guy who didn't hit ridiculous numbers associated with ridiculous advertising.

If he had put in the amount of PR work with Interscope as he did on the Massacre and still sold 660k, then yes Interscope would still be all over him...but these numbers don't make up for the effort the label put forward.

And they'll remember that.

The funniest thing I must say though...50 attacks Def Jam for their practices...and then Interscope for their "reactionary" practices...Both Def Jam and Interscope are owned by the same company...so this "Competition" has only made ridiculous money for the heads at Universal.

50 can say "I Get Money" but like Master P told him in a recent BET interview (where 50 acted humble! He actually basically apologized for "misunderstanding" Master P's recent moves to clean up his act).....You can say you're on your way to a billion...there are guys moving equities with annual cash flow of billions easily.

That's why I'm gonna be on Wall Street. :kool:

That's amazing Kanye went almost platinum in just one week these days, Interscope was hoping that 50'd do "GRODT" numbers by releasing that many singles but really most of those singles weren't hits on the charts so that ain't happening, it's clear to see his career's on a decline

Well, congratulations to Kanye. He finally beat 50, just as I thought. It's good to see that time's changing. I'm not a critic of gangsta rap, but it's a fact that hip hop was suffering. There were alternatives to gangsta, but nobody really cared about it. Now most listeners (even the younger ones) realize, that they have enough of G's and drugs and all of that stuff. As long as guys like Kanye, Will.I.Am, Nas or Jeff live, hip hop will live as well.

But if you ask me about 50, I don't think he will retire. He doesn't have the balls to do what he said. Or, in other words: He talk the talk, but he doesn't walk the walk.

Yep the american dream is acting like a jerk to everyone you know, especially guys like Nas, Master P, and Jay-Z...you know...the guys that gave him his first tours, while marketing your act, a sexual and violent act, toward the 11 to 14 year old girl demographic. Oh and don't forget the macho-anti-women sentiments. Remember, women are just objects in Americans' eyes....

Please, the guy is the classic jerk who will step on anyone and everyone just to satisfy his own greed...

That's not American...we're competitive...but there's a line.
