Rapper and television producer 50 Cent was a recent guest on Big Boy TV where 50 Cent claims credit for The Game and Lloyd Banks debut albums.
WHAT 50 CENT SAID
50 Cent was originally talking about the amount or records that he sold with the release of his classic album, Get Rich Or Die Tryin’. 50 Cent said: “When you sell 13 million records around the world and in the period that I’m doing that, there’s nobody that’s doing it. Outside of Eminem himself. You know what I’m saying, with the Marshal Matters thing.”
He would then go on to say: “And then we come back the next album I dropped three albums after that album. I dropped Beg For Mercy, Lloyd Banks solo and then Game’s album before I came back with The Massacre.”
WHAT IS THE ISSUE?
Over the years, upon the separation of G-Unit, there have been feuds and claims of who wrote what on G-Unit albums. Therefore when 50 Cent claims credit for The Game and Lloyd Banks Debut albums by saying, “I dropped 3 albums” and goes on to include Lloyd Banks and The Game’s debut albums, it raises eyebrows.
Listen to what 50 Cent said a few months ago on his The Breakfast Club interview post that went viral regarding artists he’s wrote for.
Rapper 50 Cent concludes with comments regarding his second solo album, The Massacre. He states: “The Massacre…that one sold 10 million records. And they’ll say it was only one album [Get Rich Or Die Tryin’] but that’s because they wanna forget that one. That rum is very uncomfortable.”
Hustle Harder, Hustle Smarter is 50 Cent’s book where he shakes up the self-help category. Hustle Harder, Hustle Smarter combines 50 Cent’s street smarts and hard-learned corporate savvy to help readers successfully achieve their own comeback—and to learn to flow with the changes that disrupt their own lives.
And as always we like to close with a saying, quote or adage and today’s is from 50 Cent: DON’T WAIT FOR THEM TO TELL YOU. TELL THEM.
Now, go forth and change the game!
