    Let me tell you this the only street nigga is Gucci Mane: * Jay-Z rapping since he was 15 years in the group High Potent. So when did he sold drugs? Between 10 and 15 years? Nobody in Brooklyn can confirm his crime stories. Did this nigga Jay not called the LAPD the get his masters back? * Drake i'm not gonna discuss this faggot. * Ice Cube was 14/15 years old when he was in the group C.I.A. Same story Lying-Z. * Nas Escobar stole his name from druglord Pablo Escobar but the only thing Nas Escobar ever sold in his life are records. * Dr. Dre the nigga who never make beats but uses ghostproducers. (Sam Sneed, Daz, warren G, Cold187um, The Glove, Mell Man etc.) Dr. Dre is as gangsta as there are ghosts. NOT! * 50 Cent sold drugs but on a small level. End of the crime stories. After that he snitched on Murda INC to get a restraining order. FACTS! * The Shame oops i mean The Game a former male stripper and now a attention whore. His own brother said that The Shame is a phony. So who do you you believe? * Flopp Deep oops i mean Mobb Deep some former arts of school studenst and balerina's. Nobody in Queens can confirm there crime stories. * Young Jeezy already exposed by Pimp C as a phony. FACTS! * T.I. he snithed to the feds. Illegal weapons charge thats 10/15 years jail. Come on. * Lil Wayne i aint gonna discuss this faggot. The list goes on....... they all OSG Original Studio Gangstas but NOT Gucci straight up FACTS about selling dope, killing and beating people.

    "he just putting them out so I think they doing good" You think? lol Don't think. I applaud 50 for practically giving his album away, but the music hasn't gotten better. The Interscope singles sucked. The indie singles suck. What else is left?

  • mountmasmore

    I like 50 but an artist as big as him should be moving hundreds of thousands of singles I can see he spending a lot of money to get poping but its not adding up that dre produced single is fire but yet its not blowing up like it should be there is a disconnect he may have waited to long and fans have moved on but I like the music I just don't think fans are hype on it

    Indie is the way to go. See how 50 Cent is reaping the benefit of going Indie.U see how well and fast the singles are selling. He is making that $$$$$ from being Indie. Plus the singles are doing so well (better than the one with Eminem Adam) bcos the tracks are hot, the lyrics are insane. Indie baby!

  • King P

    You guys should put Mr. Probz his 'Waves'sales on here... 60K ONLY in the UK...

  • Antonio Romo

    Im surprised 50's singles dont sell more, he is pop rapper who had cross over hits but I dont think the general public are actually showing interest for the harsh realities and gritty content that he sings about on his hooks. That single he dropped with Adam Levine from Maroon 5 was flames anyway,
