50 Cent: WHY???

Someone explain to me why the hell he's so huge already. He mumbles his words and nothing I've heard by him has really impressed me. Sure, "In Da Club" is a huge hit, but that does not justify him selling 800000+ copies in a single week.

so what if I live with 5 or 6 people who play 50 Cent all day....

It's amazing to me how quickly people can become mega-rich and famous. I haven't heard of the guy until a few days ago, and apparantly he's the most famous person in the history of humankind. Or something.

Flash in a pan, is my guess.

(oh, and his music sucks too)

Second week of release of his new album, sales top 800000 copies again. He's sold about 1.7 million copies of that album in 2 weeks. He has TWO hits... and only one of them is on this album! What I really don't get is how Nelly's new album didn't do as well when it opened. I mean, Nelly had two top-10 hits on his previous album ("EI" only made the top-20), an album which sold about 8 million copies, and he was destorying everyone with "Hot in Herre" at #1 for like 3 months, yet 50 Cent outdoes him with one song? Come the fuck on America!

i mean if you're gonna buy shitty music, have some sort of consistency, y'know?

If its any consolation, half of the women who buy the album look at the cover and go "DAMN, HE'S UGLY!".
So its not sex-appeal selling the albums.
I honestly havent heard any of his music(and dont listen to the radio/watch tv), so I cant make any calls on it.

my best guess is that hes popular because hes a close friend of eminem.

i was teaching the remedial class today. it meets afterschool. my classroom is by the access road. some guy drove by in his car pumping some loud noise from his car. i said, "oh, what is that awful music?" some of my students agreed by saying similar things. then, there were others that said, "aw man, you can't say that...that's the dawg right there. that's fitty cent, yo!" i said, "it's a good thing you don't get graded on your ear for music." i hadn't heard of this "fitty cent" guy until today. i hope he goes away.

It's called "marketing" folks. Get used to it.

Go. Go. Go. Go. Go. Go. Go. It's your birhtday.

I hate 50 Cent. I hate rap. Death to rap.

They've been playing that thing for weeks now. The shooting incident took place like a year ago, I think.

The best was when the interviewer asked "You were shot twice in the mouth, did that affect your rapping at all?"

To which 50 Cent and myself, simultaneously, replied: "Uhhh. No."
