Before I did anything I called him and I think 50 would even respect that. And he’s [Fat Joe] is like ‘nah its love there aint no problem with 50, do your thing.’ That’s just how I get down.”

The origin of the disputed stemmed from Stoute’s sensational claims that 50 Cent was no longer relevant to Hip-Hop in recent interviews with New York radio stations, because of his lack of hit records being aired.

    suge too………he had the same allure as 50
    signed to the same people as suge
    and like suge, when his purpose was meet the same people that propped suge up let his ass sink
    is it a coincident that these same people put the battery in 50 back to kill street hip hop and in particular NY hip hop?
    and if he is relevant then his fans support will show that. but if your a fan of history, then there is no way you cant see the similarities

      in a sense tho suge kind of sunk his self getting jail time is what hurt dude … as long as fif dont take jail stints and doesnt take too many Ls as far as getting sued about dumb ish and keeps his taxes paid … and @least one of his biz ventures pays off….. hes good $$$$$$

        suge “jail” time was for other reasons and for a whole nother era. how they gonna get 50 is through business ventures. and lets say he do antoher vitamin water deal then great, but the real question is, with music not a option what happens if his “biz ventures” DONT pay off? his str8 to DVD movies is wack, and i watch all that he come out with cause i dont believe in dissing someones work with out listeing, reading or watching it, but his movies is corny. his headphones……….dude been trying to push them ish since he was on the home shopping network and tweeted out the stock ticker to the company. nascar………….good money in nascar, but guess what? that aint your core audience, so what happen when you do something that turns them off and you get dropped……. but time will tell the story best

        You need to understand his business acumen. It’s about creating a brand, consuming or creating other brands and then using the original brand to create awareness of the other products you’re pushing.

        50 is a media darling now, he’s the street guy that middle aged white people feel safe around and like to get photographed with, by doing so he’s touching their fanbase also, so what happens next? He gifts them a pair of headphones, they wear them and their fans want them.

        He’s reaching into NASCAR just to give his brand exposure to that market, eventually he’ll probably try and endorse a F1 driver or team and get his product even wider exposure [it won’t be cheap though and he’ll have to reign in the childish name calling or they won’t touch him].

        If you create a big enough brand, all you have to do from there on in is allow people to attach your brand name and your image to their product, for a fee [just like Richard Branson does with Virgin].

        keep in mind music is always an option … why?? because you get royalties … so reguardless if you not making any hits in the present time … you are still getting paid off your past hits … and regardless of how wack YOU think his str8 to dvd movies are … hes getting a nice check for every last one of those films and building a portfolio that will keep him getting checks for movie offers … if camron was able to bank a few million off his netflix deal … i can only image what fif is getting … ijs movies aint like the music biz … its alot of checks that get cut up front with the str8 to dvd stuff …. and time will def tell … but if anyone u cant count out its 50 cent … dude is a hustler cant deny that … the journey is always ruff only a few make it look easy .. actually maybe only 1 and thats jayz lol … even puff had his struggles and eventually rose back up to greatness
