    @Anonymous Curtis is not on fire, he has zero buzz in the urban market and barely any in the pop market, dont let blog headlines fool you, social media is a more accurate assessment of whats hot and whats not and 50 is not hot, not warm, not lukewarm, he is tepid.

    Chart or no chart .. Curtis is on fire right now and it's just the beginning. Rick Ross, Puff Daddy, and French Montana are inferior on every level.

    Damn, you have to have an R&B hook just to get some love on the charts but 2-Pac said it best when he said that the bitches buy records. Jason Derulo at 3X platinum with that techno-hop shit.
