50 Cent Talks About His Reebok Sneakers Outselling Jay Z’s


(AllHipHop News) The competition between Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and Shawn “Jay Z” Carter goes all the way back to 50’s comedic jabs on “How To Rob” and Jay’s response on “It’s Hot.” Curtis addressed another point in the competitive history of the two New Yorkers during an interview with Revolt.

According to 50, his G-Unit Reebok sneakers outsold Jay Z’s S. Carter line by a large margin. The “Pilot” performer also claims that period created a nice windfall in profits for him as well.

“Some of the deals look alike, because you see more than one person doing a deal that seems similar, but the structure of the actual deal is more profitable for one guy than it is for the other guy,” said 50. “In reality, the G-Unit shoe outsold the Shawn Carter shoe 6 to 1. I made over $80 million during the RBK time period.”

50 goes on to borrow a line Jay made famous.

“If I’m lying. I’m flying,” said 50. “You know how they say ‘men lie, women lie, numbers don’t.'”

    Desperate azz n!gga shit

    I do want to see the numbers tho… 6 to 1 seems a stretch…

    Had me a pair of the original S.Carter and they were quite nice… (I’d actually wear them today if I could get my hands on a pair)

    Them ugly G-units tho… I could never rock with that… never owned not one shirt, hat, nothing G-Unit… the fcuk?! Picture me looking like the float of whiteboys that was jumpin on Fifty’s bandwagon at the time… smh

    • GQ

      LOL! You know the funny part is that I had both shoes. I was given the G-Units and they just sat in the box for a few years till I found them and dropped them off in the Salvation Army box. I had 2 pair of S.C’s and wish they re-release.

      • 216Brim

        Both dem shits was wack

      • No $hot$ but that ‘chet was mad funny…..& pretty true.

      • Miami

        But you cant afford neither one?

    • bigdoe6

      Quit lying nigga. You was rocking do-rags and all. 50 inspired you.

      • johnblacksad

        LMAO!

        Nigga please… by 2003, we had ‘changed clothes’… shirts and cufflinks… you know, on some Purple Label, or that BBC sh!t, or it was probably tailored…

        I was rocking do-rags back when Cappadonna was droppin The Pillage… get your timeline straight!

      • Judah Nazayar

      • johnblacksad

        that style you’re describin is 1999/2000 Hot Boys sh!t… who the fcuk just stopped wearin a do-rag? Mayne… couldn’t be me.
        I haven’t even seen anyone rock a do-rag in the past 4 or 5 years so you’re shooting blanks right now… smh

        The minute Hov said “I don’t wear jerseys I’m thirtyplus” back in 2003… n!ggaz went head and put all them expensives throwbacks to the side…

        Maybe the niggaz you roll with still rock do-rags and that’s good for ya’ll… but over here, it’s been shirts, cufflinks, clean slippers and no chrome on the wheels… now let me dirt you off my shoulder

    • Raheem Classick

      Thats what people fail to realize, When the S.’s dropped they sold out of all of them, There was no more in production, It was A one off deal, Unlike the G-Unit sneakers which stayed in production.

    • TheOnlyCoop

      Google “S carter sneaker sales record” and then do the same with “g unit sneakers sales record” and 5-0 looks stupid.

      • johnblacksad

        Real talk… from what I remember, S.Carter was the highest selling debut for a Reebok sneaker… I just didn’t feel like lookin it up… maybe the Units sold more shoes worldwide… possible… but that 6 to 1, I already know it’s a straight up lie so I ain’t feel like verifying that sh!t… I clearly know Fif’s agenda on this one…

        It’s all fair in war… get rich or die tryin… lie, do whatever… I understand

      • TheOnlyCoop

        I feel you the way I see it 5-0 feels threatened by Jay.

      • Yeah, G Unit could have outsold, it had a larger line.
        Sneakers, socks, t shirts, underwear, hoodie, jacket, pants, bandana, wrist band, belt, & more distribution & style choices.

        Reebok = #1 supplier for women’s sports, and Hockey? so they have an untapped market.

        Beyonce got the women with Jay Z now ( *Soccer Momz in Paris & Japan, etc. ) While 50 had the athletic image, so his kicks were targetting the more active lifestyle that wanted to be “Hip”, as opposed to Jay Z’s that were desinged to just be “Hip.”
        Video game, etc.
        Plenty of cross promotion.

      • superh8

        Js sneaker was just a knock off of the back in the day gucci tennis shoe.how original.lazy fat lip bastard.

      • I actually rememer the Gucci Jawnts!

      • superh8

        Them shits were hot back then

  • johnblacksad

    Talkin bout you outsold Hov when you’re now sitting here clearly praying for Hov to say something back and give you a little shine for your album… ninjaz dont even realize how sad they are… but I guess it’s die tryin right? At least he called it… smh

    • Judah Nazayar

      aside from jayz verse from wwe made it remix… jayz hasnt been putting out that great material. Oceans and a few others are fuggin great. But have u heard 50s new joints?.. theyre RAW!! sinister… sure , hes still talking about killin ppl.. and yeah this shet is goin damn gonna be 88-2014= too fukkin long to be rappin about guns and killin (almost 40 years)

      • Judah Nazayar

        imma bigger fan of jay musically than 50..sooo

      • Mist of Jay’z tracks are trash.

        MCHG was “A’ight”, but really trash compared to what jay can really do.
        The commercialized ‘chet gets no props except for sales, & Jay Z sells, so no disputing that.

        It’s a good look to even be considered to be battling Jay Z on the $$ tip, considering his $$ game is stronger than his lyrical game….but his lyrical game is pretty strong though…just not the best, or even close.

  • GQ

    I use to see hella pinoys and whiteboys in G-Unit sneakers.

    • johnblacksad

      whiteboys started hittin the gym and all…

      Just occured to me… do you think Eminem umbrella’s have anything to do with that float of whiteboys who just fell in love with the Unit? jus wondering

      • NaaaaHHHH, Yeah, but Nah!

        G unit was knocking in it’s own right!

        >> In Jada’s voice:
        “GRODT was a classic, now you rich & trying to die, You a stupid bastard!”

        GRODT = Classic

        Might be semi wack now, but that’s because of 50’s antics.
        That ‘chet was knocking when it dropped.

      • johnblacksad

        Yeah… true… I like how you said that… the Unit was knocking in its own right! Em may have brought his fans to the table… but GRODT was bound for success anyway… classic indeed

        They had their span… GRODT, then the Unit’s album, Banks, Buck, The Documentary… *respect, respect…*

  • bigdoe6

    See 50 and Jay had their very own sneakers by Reebok. Ross on the hand were promoting retro Reeboks, he didn’t have his own shoe with Reebok. Niggas hate to give 50 his props. 50 made real money with Reebok. Dudes be quick to shoot down 50 accomplishments because they’re too busy dick riding Ross.

    • johnblacksad

      Do you think you just dropped a major info or something?

      How did Rozay land on this debate?

      Looks like somebody busy dick riding Fif

  • $18916246

    That’s why his careers on knock off….50 hopes he can buy himself back into the limelight. The most ambitious trouble maker I’ve seen in HIP-HOP. 9 shots and ambulance ride would humble anybody else, not Curtis though. GOD BLESS MR.JACKSON.

    • johnblacksad

      I have never been shot nine times, but I think that it could either humble you or forever give you that definite “no fcuks given” status… IMHO

  • Reblogged this on HUEY mix wit RILEY.

  • But everyone took time to comment though…

    • Phibes

      I know it’s crazy! If you don’t like him don’t say nothing, just keep it moving. Panties all in a bunch! Lol

      • johnblacksad

        Hey what can I do… it is what it is… some were extremely lucky to get into hip hop with the Wu-Tang Clan… and others got in with G-Unit…

        I’m jus sayin…

  • disqus_wP9qaQP4Hv

    Dude keep spraying them AK’s but he off target though cause ain’t no one responding cause he ain’t hit no target. straight up seeking attention, from Snoop to Puff to Nas and now Jay… Who’s next to get it from 50. Dem dudes too rich and not bothered with 50 like Ross say he’s Irrelevant. What happen to just going back to do what really fattens your pocket instead of just straight singing. 80 mill made yesterday was yesterday’s money, make today money bra… Fiddy ain’t serious right now. GFOH
    The Mic in your hands is Revolt and thats Diddy all day, shit dem dudes might be setting you up to really self destruct… Chess game here fiddy.

    • johnblacksad

      Nigga wanna use the same strategy that worked for him 10 years ago… beef his way to the top… ain’t no one gonna respond… just watch that boat sink slow…

  • Chris

    At least Ja Rule accepted his fate with grace and pride. Not 50, though. SMH.

    • baller187

      good line totally true, all 50 does is talk about the past

  • Phibes

    You people love to hate 50! Lol

    • SleepyTheGreat

      And All He Do is State Facts….People Hate The Truth. Same Dudes Who Sided With Ross Out of Pitty

      • johnblacksad

        Yeah, like Hov quit making music in 2003 because of him… speak about facts! smh

      • SleepyTheGreat

        “50 Cent is Coming”-Jay-Z
        I Admire Hov, But He Said That

  • baller187

    this nigga always livin in the past

    • Phibes

      Living in the past!?!

      You guys do know he was being interviewed and was asked these
      questions right?

      If you have a problem with what he’s saying, then your real beef should be with the ones who’s conducting the interview. All you’re seeing is excerpts of a full interview that was done. They asked certain questions & all he did was answer them. So how’s answering a question about your past accomplishments living in the past?

      • disqus_wP9qaQP4Hv

        Cause someone of 50’s Status should not put himself where he’s been asked dem type of questions. These questions and answers make him look like he’s mad or can’t move past yesterday. 50’s beyond this type of questions. No-one dares ask Em, Jay, Puf etc. Thats because they know he will speak and they want ratings so let’s go for the silly questions and he keeps playing into it. Even questions in regards to what happened btw his own camp.. Real G’s don’t allow that. Death be4 dishonour right?

      • Phibes

        What do you mean that type of question? Real G’s don’t allow that?
        What kind of foolishness are you talking about? You’re talking some street stuff & that has its place & time. This is the business world &that street stuff gets no play there.

        They asked about a deal he had & he answered, what’s
        wrong with that? How is he beyond answering
        questions from his past? What is he supposed to do, walk out the interview? Or even better punch the interviewer in the face since you want him to keep it gangsta. LOL

        People ask Puff all the time about the old Bad Boy days
        & they also ask Jay-Z about the Roc. It’s an important part of their legacy so those questions always come up. Keep that G talk for the hommies on the corner,cause in the business world it gets no love.

      • DLOUPO

        They was question was talking about something else 50 as usual wanna talk about 1982 cause theirs nothing to talk about in 2014

      • Phibes

        1982 !?! what are you talking about? It’s obvious you didn’t hear the complete interview,your going off a clip.

      • johnblacksad

        I respect the Unit tho… they got their hardcore fans… I just ain’t one of ’em

      • Phibes

        Respect…The funny thing I’m not a big unit fan myself also. But once I saw how he was making moves to get his money outside of the music business,that’s when I became a fan of his.

        I just don’t understand all the hate. Not saying with you,but with some of these comments, you would think he did something personally to them.Or took some money out their pockets. SMH

        Makes me wonder who gets more hate, 50 or Drake.

  • MrNoName2K

    I respect Curtis, however, he used some deceptive wording. He didn’t say that Reebok paid him $80 million.

    • dee

      What does that matter 80 million is 80 million. The shoe is branded by reebok so who else paid 50 the check?

      • Brick Soulja

        He didn’t make it entirely from Reebok, duh.

      • The money don’t know where it came from.

      • Miami

        The money you dont have LOL Nigga you wear spauldings but commenting on Reeboks. LOL Irony

        Spaulding was pretty funny though, not as funny as you worrying about another man’s kicks, or you being impressed by them, while living in the projects.

        LOL~N X 2

        M.A.G.’ging from Panero Bread ir some ‘chet, after the Library closes.

        Do you though, with a $350 belt you bought at Barney’s with your low income student stipend,

        You’re a complete fuggin’ idiot, probably born in the ’90’z.
        A crack baby!

        Projects? Sorry I dont live in the hood. Not even close but hey, I apologize for my fam working hard, making a way, and not being felon ass rejects of society like EDOGZ. Sorry.

        But do you tho, love that fat wife of yours, shi**y ass old house, and a criminal record that equals to her having to find a career to support a loser ass husband who only has actual friends online.

        LOL~N to mask the pain. I know its ok

  • Cswift85

    G Unit was at the top of the game at that point so of course the g unit shoes sold more.

    • Word7

      He ain’t lying I was in Italy in 06 I saw them joints in the damn stores lol Catz were wearing them shits out there!!!

      • johnblacksad

        my point exactly! talkin bout it worked in Italy… only the float of whiteboys that got snatched by the Unit’s bandwagon thought them shits were hot

  • don king

    “men lie, women lie, numbers dont.” can u please stop quotin this wack ass line?! cause its a fuckin lie itself. numbers get manipulated all the time.

  • Mec-One

    Okay 50, but let’s not forget that it was Steve Stoute & Jay Z who got you that Reebok deal

    • Phibes

      Lol! Jay-Z did not get 50 that Rebook deal! Who told you that?

      • Mec-One

        Steve Stoute & Jay z are partners in an advertisement & marketing company that got Jay his Reebok deal and it was Jay idea to get 50 in on it (remember Jay & 50 in the Reebok commercial together) ….. These are the words straight from Steve Stoute mouth. #StrictlyFacts

      • Phibes

        Jay-Z had no part of that deal, just Stoute. In fact Reebok
        was pissed at Jay because he didn’t want to represent their full brand & he still wore Nike at the time. Because of that, & the success of the S.Cater1’s, the 50 cent joint venture deal came about.

        Jay-Z didn’t make the deal happen, but because of the success
        of his line, they went after 50 who was already in talks with Nike. He only went with Reebok because they offered more money. #StrictlyFacts

      • TheOnlyCoop

        Google “S carter sneaker sales record” and then do the same with “g unit sneakers sales record” tell me what you find?

      • Phibes

        what does that have to do with my point?

      • johnblacksad

        ^^^^
        LMAO

        You know exactly!

      • Mec-One

        You can go all delusional if you want …… or you can go on youtube and check out videos as recent as Steve Stoute interview on Hot97 ….. or as far back as 2011 – 2009 Steve Stoute interviews where he says the same thing and 50 never denies theses facts …….. if you always tell the truth, you never have to remember anything.

  • Phibes

    It’s working Curtis, It’s working!!!! Lol

  • This sounds like some sh*t that a dude would say when he’s losing. “Remember I beat you in the 50 yard dash back in high school?”
    Come on 50. You just signed a new deal and you’re about to drop. We know you’re trying to shine with your new release but do it a little better than that.

    • Miami

      You look ashy as fcuk my nigguh!

      • johnblacksad

        You sound mad as fcuk tho… lol… on top of sounding gay…

    • Mike G

      how you know they are trash? you tried them?

      • Sgt. H. Jennings

        Yes, I tried them. The cans and the ear buds. Just not a good sound at all. I used a DAC on them and a Fiio, couldn’t take the equalization from either one. Plastic feel to them. That’s not that important though. The sound is the reason we all buy headphones and those you should stay far away from. The old version and the new 2014 version. But I did like Get Rich or Die Trying. lol..

      • Mike G

        oh ok I was just curious if you was one of those “they arent beats ” people. You try the soul ones?

    • he doing movies, releasing an album, pushing products, what u doing?

      • Sgt. H. Jennings

        Lol. I’m not about to go back and forth with you on this dude. Say what you want, he isn’t making any moves worth mentioning. If he was, that would be the discussion in his interviews. Not some old shit from 2006 and 2007.

  • Sgt. H. Jennings

    No hating at all, stating facts sir… Dude never speak on anything current. I wonder why? Oh I know why and I’m sure you do too.. Every interview is about what he did back in 04,05,06. What about 2013, 2014 my dude? What’s new? NOTHING!!!!
