Hip-Hop Rumors: 50 Cent "Sells Out" On QVC


First Oprah, and now QVC?! 50 Cent is really, um, diversifying his media reach, isn’t he? The Hip-Hop mogul made an unexpected appearance on QVC last night, selling his SYNC and STREET headphones which retail for $250 and up.

50 was strategic with this appearance and made sure that his music was playing in the background, as he bragged about how durable his headphones are. Check out the video of 50 Cent’s appearance below:

The headphones ended up selling out, just like….oh, never mind!

  • therealest1

    Sell your shit!

  • Romia Blue

    hmm, get in good with Oprah. Sell out immediately on QVC.
    I’d say his marketing strategy is working.
    Again, why is this in the rumor section?

  • junj03

     Sydney Lace is the one that should sell out. out of ahh please!

  • fish salad water

    Why the phuck is AHH allowing Sydney Lame’s non rumor articles to be posted????????? 

  • Nemesis_Enforcer

    Why would he be considered a sell out?  He was more of a “sell out” when he was making music about drugs a violence.  Now he is simply trying to sell a product via one of the most formidable channels, QVC.

    So how is that selling out? You said it yourself that his music was playing (promotion) and he is selling headphones (promotion) while wearing a Street Kings chain (promotion).

    And why is this in the rumor section anyway?

    • immackulate

      nobody said he was a SELL OUT – the sentence references the HEADPHONES selling out just like …

      • Nemesis_Enforcer

        I’m sorry that you didn’t comprehend the innuendo’s.  But you missed it.

      • immackulate

        INNUENDOS – sorry you was off track from your 1st comment – quit trying to back peddle like you meant misinterpret what was being reported

    • xdc845

      “He was more of a “sell out” when he was making music about drugs a violence”So according to you anybody that makes music about those topics are sellouts?! I love to see you try to tell Death Metal bands that!

      • Nemesis_Enforcer

        It’s a black thing, little guy. You wouldn’t understand.

  • gomer_1

    im sure 50 had yayo and banks buy up all the headphones….cause i see everybody wit beats by dre…

    • Beats by Dre are garbage! A lot of people don’t even know what a pair good headphones sound like… They just buying the Dre beats just to say they have Dre beats… LoL.. F*cking sheep!

      • gomer_1

        No need to have go into cardiac arrest they’re just headphones.

  • tbirdandkoolaid

    This cat mama got killed while he was a kid….

    Look ma, your son done made it….

  • Jas1ne

     The man gotta eat. His records ain’t selling like they used to so he’s gotta branch out and explore other options.

    •  He branched out LONG before his sales dipped. Is Diddy a sellout for having a fragrance? Clothing? Restaurants? An alcoholic beverage? How about when Diddy went on The Home Shopping Network? Did he sellout then?

  • s0rethumb

    Kevin Harrington 50’s partner in the headphone venture got him on QVC. It was a part of the deal with TVGoods, inc. Good business is big business.

  • Sold out like… Allhiphop?

  • disqus_TZ0zHZSkHK

  • wow! really allhiphop? a sellout? NOW yall decide to start calling out the sellouts in hip hop?? 50’s a sellout then what are 98% of the rappers on tours promoted by Hennessy, red bull, sprite etc? what are reality tv stars? Lil wayne’s skateboard poser line is in MACY’S (as if skateboarders even shop their) and he doing mountain dew commercials! dude goes to basketball games, sits FRONT ROW, promoting dre’s headphones…rick ross, 2 chainz etc all them niggas promote brands that dont even support them yet they keep screamin LV, gucci etc! Thats BEYOND a sellout, that just pathetic!! I hope you meant ‘sold out’ like…literally…otherwise its mind baffling ignorance and pure hatred…

  • ccwaterbound32

    sydney sydney,”tsk””tsk””tsk””tsk” when will you just realize that what you are doing is like trying to fit a square piece into a circle piece on a puzzle? everyday it’s the same thing. you put together some sloppy azz article to get your hits or whatever it is, and WE  the readers stupidly click on these wack azz articles to comment and b*tch about how much you suck azz at what it is you do… I just feel so used… its like getting drugged and raped and not enjoying the memory of the whole encounter… anyway I KNOW your feelings are hurt or you feel a certain way about yourself by second guessing the things you are writing about. but besides that i just have to ask…1. does grouchy greg put a gun to your head while you write? 2. do you even like the articles and editorials you put together? 3. are you high on some kind of narcotic? 4.why do you do stories about who’s sleeping with who? 5. are you high? 6. do you even know what hip hop is let alone where it originated from? 7. are you still high?  just do everybody here a serious favor and just do SOME SERIOUS SOUL SEARCHING, GET SOME D*CK, AND ABOVE ALL ELSE REPORT SOMETHING REAL AND WORTHWHILE!!!!!!!!

    • ccwaterbound32 If you don’t start writing for AHH immediately, I’m going to personally throw bricks through their office windows. I would MUCH rather read your comments than Sydney’s STUPID articles.

  • TheBoxcarHobo

    Syd…u got a lot of nerve referring to ANYONE as a sellout

  • 50 is hilarious. Cool dude. Good for him. No sellout, just biz.

  • Sell out? SMH! 50 is one hell of a business man… How is this selling out? This chick is an ignorant joke! 

  • Jahb1911

    Smart man.. Now if he can get away from the nonsense in his music life..

  • Word7

    How is he a sell-out? Isn’t he selling SMS Audio, that’s his company aint it? GTFOH,  the black man selling his own shitt and catz are hating!

  • thats why i hate this bullshit ass site, cus they have always been hating on 50. whats the hate about.

  • ulostatlife

    This dude should focus on the business side.Who can take him seriously after watching him hawk items on QVC? Yet his stans will e-murk you if you even frown in their god’s direction.He is a tremendous businessman but his music has become laughable..**waits for fiddy stans to load E-bullets into their E-Uzi’s…

    • the music def fell off but he never changed who he was.. he gets respect for that.

      • HIP HOP SAVIOURS

        His music didn’t fall off. People say it fell off why? because he’s not always talking about the hood? This man do WORLD TOURS and performs in front of 50k plus fans day in and day out. I call that doing the same thing JayZ and Yeezy doing and he’s doing it by himself. It’s call GROWTH.

      • ulostatlife

         That’s all 50 talks about..Stop it fam..Fif has never had range..everything is guns,the hood etc…There has been absolutely no GROWTH on his part unless you mean the pop beats like Ayo Technology,candy shop etc..It;s cool if you are a fan but don’t be a stan..His business acumen is serious and I respect that but his music is terrible and he is a shadow of his former self lyrically and musically..

      • nah i just mean he ant sellin like he used to… i dig the music.. murder one is my shit!!! But he ant selling like jay or yeezy.. or wayne and his pop acts..

      • Promoterslapper

        yhman,,, true but no1 is selling like they used to, the market is changin, no1 really buys records,, 50 is still selling records i n my opinion his last album did alright, i mean 160k the first week is not bad after the album got leaked a month earlier, woulda sould more than 300-400k the first week if it never got leaked, 

  • ANDRE SALAZAR

    50’s at it again & the media acts all surprised like: “Oh my gosh, 50’s selling things on TV!?!” WOW! A black man tries to prosper & the public looks at him like he’s crazy! The same dude says ignorant things & blows all his cash on nonsense, they call you a genius & the best (Lil’ Wayne) << FAIL, no matter how you look at it!

  • I dont get it!!! He is selling his own product!!…. You have to support your own product!!!

    • RECKLESS

      probably because you have a brain! i don’t get stupid shit either

  • 50 selling out?? i dont think anyone can say 50 changed who is or his music to sell out.. at least not as much dat minaj bitch and wayne skateboarding..

  • Nemesis_Enforcer

    Ok now Sydney, Sydney, Sydney. Put it in your Kidney….

  • Pierre Elliott

    50 is a black man who came from the hood, took ADVANTAGE of the things that were put in his path…I dont like most of his music but you have to respect the man. He is doing it.
    Just like Jay ( whom I cant stand most of his music, other than R. Doubt and Neptunes stuff)
    You cant hate.   They are making moves in life.

                  ******THE WORLD IS BIGGER THAN A CITY BLOCK*****

  • dominicancoke

    damn 50 in 05 you was the man 50 what the f*ck happened to you? all jokes aside 50 is a tremendous business man his music career for the most part is in a coma to put it bluntly 
    yet he still making more money than most of these skinny jean wearing rappers never in the history of rap has there been and actual rapper that promotes him self like 50 head phones energy drink vitamin water his movie production hes still relevant enough to appear in multiple tv shows and media outlets what he does is still news and relevant not too many rappers have that privilege with no hot songs in rotation besides LL cool j queen latifah and will smith

  • Vikram662

    Scratch the “hip-hop” mogul and replace it with ‘business”. Don’t hate that he’s not goon’ing it up anymore.

  • PorchBoySlim

    this is good business!! how  much yall wanna bet he end up at the top of the forbes list…this is a smart ass dude right here…OVC is a gold mine…they be selling collectible coins and them shits sell like hot cakes so its only right/SMART to put his product up there….and Syndey I fuckin hate u and ur bum ass articles

  • IDNTGIVAFUCKBOUTNOTHING

    Do U 50 They Downloading Your CD anyway Why Not Find other Avenues to make $$$$???

  • man fif ok—he just trying to keep up with them big boys (puff, jay, and now dre) but he needs to expand his mental information/knowledge so that he can rap about things and situations with substance. At some point you have to evolve/grow as an artist, and he hasn’t done that yet–Like Jay said “If you want the old jay–then go buy my old stuff” or something like that–lol. You get the point.

    • jay z is the true sell out please don’t quote nothing from that camel lmao

      • Black folks kill me…What is a sell out? Once you struggle and then you get out of that struggle and do better for yourself you are called a sell out. Why? “Keepin it real with the hood ain’t real” Its just a experimental program to keep people held down with a crab in a barrel mentality. 50 cent is only doing what he is supposed to do make life better for him and his family. I left the Hood a long time ago physically and mentally and it’s been fantastic my life is much better.I also feel that black folks don’t appreciate a person when they do give back to the “hood”..so why do it …since the “hood wasn’t wit me when I was shootin in the gym,writing my rhymes, creating art or inventing the next great thing. So we as black people need to get off that dumb shit and get on that smart train. If not ..oh well me and my family will be the next sell out and proud of it.

      • The circumstances of the hood was engineered to be the way it is by our enemies. Why would you want to STAY in the circumstance that were designed to keep you in substandard conditions? It only makes since to do better for yourself and get out of that situation and then if you can…help others to get out also.

  • Nicer Day

    sell out HOW??? is he changing who he is? is he compromising himself? is he selling something that is bad? is he selling someone else is product while passing it off as his…or is he a sell out because of the outlet he choose to use to sell his product?

    • H. U. S.

      If he ain’t selling out of the trunk of the car, that ain’t keeping it ”Real”! He shoulda been selling headphones, guns and drugs to the streets, that’s ”real” credibility there! Oh, and I forgot about selling boot-leg clothes and purses….makes the hood look rich!

      Man I miss how much sense that makes…

  • Pierre Elliott

    I WILL SAY THIS THOUGH:  Its one thing to come out real your first time.
    Break new ground, bring something new to the table.
    But then at a certain point, heads say: Hey I can MAKE money offa the commercial stuff.

    Ok OK, make that money. But if what you do “now” is just a shadow of your true self, then why 
    dont people go BACK to what made them popular instead of more radio garbage with no substance???? How can you go through life acting and listening to music and people who 
    tell you: Everything is good, and fine when its not.   To me, thats not music that speaks to me as a person….

    After awhile a balance has to had, and im not seeing balance.
    Im seeing alot of people of color imitating others in society.
    Never not doing ANYTHING for people of color who made them who they are
    other than give out some damn Turkeys, which is what some drug dealer did for them
    when they lived in the projects….   

    Good my black people, upgrade, live your life in this shite country called America.
    But in that happening, we lost our way.  And I mean black, white, hispanic asians.
    As A whole, and its all due to money…..

  • Pierre Elliott

    And dont let ANYONE tell you money is everything cause its not.
    Its about the relationships you have with fellow humans on this planet.

    Not about embarrassing people, making you look like the bigger person.
    These days: its about making people feel insecure. Sitting on Facebook all day
    commenting on peoples pics and lying about how you get it in….

    Drake just got caught lying about his gold watch, now what does that tell you.

    I come from an era where you treat people the way you want to be treated, but somewhere every
    one needed to show off because EVERYONE knows now days that shit can be over in an instant, and if thats the case I want people and things around me that truly matter.

    I  love to party and get live but everyday life isnt like that…..
    Understand ALL commercially released music thats on the radio is all engineered to
    make certain brain waves not function, the govt has been doing it for the last 24 years.

    But only choose to do it now, after PAC and Biggie and Kobain deaths, trust me its real.

            ****THE ERA OF DUMB AND IGNORANCE MUST END NOW****

  • Pierre Elliott

    YEAH REALLY, BEING A ” GOON’ IS OFFICIALLY DEAD

    THUGGIN OR THUG IS AND HAS BEEN DEAD FOR THE LAST 3 YEARS.
    IF YOU ROCKIN OVERSIZED JERSEYS, DOO RAGS AND BAGGY JEANS MY NIGGA, YOU STILL STUCK IN THE 90S…..

  • StinkPinkGators313

    I wouldn’t say 50 sold out because this has nothing to do with rap/hip-hop. The man is a business genius, and knows how to market his brand…Get Rich or dying trying came out like 10 years ago, he’d be a fool not to put that money in different ventures. More rappers should follow his hustle

  • FOR YOU GUYS THAT DO NOT UNDERSTAND SIMPLE ENGLISH.

    SELLING OUT IN COMMERCIAL ( HUSTLE )TERMS MEANS THERE WAS NO MORE PRODUCT TO BUY AKA THEY RAN OUT DUE TO DEMAND.

    NOW I AM GOING TO TRANSLATE IT TO STREET TERMS.
    LETS SAY YOU GOT 10 BAGS OF WEED AND YOU GO AND HUSTLE AND SELL ALL TEN, THAT MEANS YOU HAVE SOLD OUT BECAUSE THERE IS NOT MORE LEFT.

    HOPE YOU GUYS GET IT NOW

  • Selling out???? Isnt it GOOD to “sell out” a product? lol

    What other “selling out” are you speaking of? I guess if he stayed broke and on the corner or with the same mentality he had while he was on the corner then that’s a good thing.

    Black folks…listen…..The hood and the circumstances of the hood were DESIGNED to keep us in substandard conditions by our enemies. It doesnt make sense to want to STAY in the conditions that your enemy WANTS YOU IN!!!

    To ” sell out” is when you dont use your damn brain and talents/skills to better your condition and improve your state of mind. Cut out this “sell out” nonsense just because he doesnt have a “street corner” mentality anymore. He came in the game almost 10 years ago….are we suppose to stay in the same mentality for ten years? Doesnt that mean you havent matured and grown in 10 years? That’s called being STAGNANT!!! I dont know about yall but I’d rather be PROGRESSIVE and THEN go back and help some other people from the area or cisrcumstance I was once in to get out of it and better themsleves.
