    WELL CURTIS SINGLES SOLD CLOSE TO 1 MILLION COPIES OF EACH SINGLE.THE ONLY REASON IT DIDNT SHOW UP IN THE CHART IS BCOS THE SINGLES WERE SOLD AT INDEPENDENT RETAILERS. SINCE CURTIS IS INDIE NOW HE SOLD HIS SINGLES THRU INDEPENDENT OUTLETS THAT DONT COUNT TOWARDS THE CHART. THATS WHY THE NUMBERS ARE LOW. SYKE!!! LOOOOOL

    26 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his life [his blessed [a]life in the kingdom of God]? Or what would a man give as an exchange for his [blessed] [b]life [in the kingdom of God]?

      Repent and forsake your sins. Turn to Jesus Christ for your salvation. Homosexuality is a sin. Repent! 22 You shall not lie with a man as with a woman; it is an abomination. -Leviticus 18:22 Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand! Jesus said "20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." -Revelation 3:20 -Pat Duv

    "Anonymous: not to mention all the white producers nas has used to make beats for his albums you old racist piece of trash" White colored people can feel free to make beats that the legends use but they need to understand that Nas is not a House N*gger like 50, Nas music caters to Black people while 50 caters to white people, this is why Nas called 50 a Bufoon and a Porch Monkey.

      Whites who live their Rap journey vicariously through Eminem are especially fond of Curtis they view him as a friendly negro they could crack jokes and dance with, put on wigs and make "poop" jokes about man-boobs and butt-holes. This is why 50 uploaded some psude gay pictures of Diddy on his Instagram....an Instagram of him smiling and grinning with multiple white people. White love their Monkey and their monkey loves them more than his own.

      @abruthaadee I remember Saalam Remi using an Amy Winehouse sample after she was dead on Nas LIG,....Saalam Remi is a longtime Nas collaborater and he was also Amy Winehouse executive producer. Some rappers are slick and use token whites on their albums, they add the white ingredient to their projects to appeal to white people. Some rappers dont feel the need to cater to white people with their music but 50 does.

      "Nas has about 12 albums without a white man on it because Nas makes music for his own people." Yeah but he got a white woman! What a sellout geek like Kendrick and J Cole having white hipster pop singers on Life is Good to try and appeal to white america.

      his girl must have left him for a white g-unit fan, only way to explain someone so old being so fucking butthurt about someone for so many years

      More lies from bitter BruthaDee. Ironically, all rappers tried to appeal to white people.

      50 tries hard to appeal to white people because they are his biggest fans, 50 has never released an album without a white man on it but Nas has about 12 albums without a white man on it because Nas makes music for his own people. Whites love 50 because he dates white women with flat asses and does songs with Timberlake, Eminem, Skylar, and Adam Levine. 50 is like a pet monkey to white people.
