50 cent

Hip-Hop Rumors: Check Out 50 Cent’s New Deal!

The unflappable King of Beef may have landed a big situation with Live Nation, according to reports on the internet. There seems to be huge deal to the tune of $300 million for the G-Unit General. Seems like this report started at thisis50.com and continued to roll downhill. Now, I am not sure if this is true, but it may be possible that is popped off because of the G-Unit reunions. I don’t know to be real, but that could be it. Anyway, 50 is getting money all over the place. I heard a few deals he’s working on overseas too. The next album is coming too. Don’t get it twisted, he made money off that last one.

    $300,000,000….I doubt it in this music market but anythings possible..

    • bigdoe6

      Music, International Tours, and Merchandise. Sounds about right.

      • hoeyuno

        Yea you could be right…no hate I like seeing fif winning…..

      • J_buddha

        That 50th Law he did with Robert Greene is one of the best books every written. It is about fearlessness and they use historical black figures for references. It is a life changing book.

      • 5% Hov

        48 laws of Power is the better book.
        But either way Robert Greene is epic.

      • J_buddha

        I don’t think so. I think Robert Greene’s latest books show that to get true power you have to be good at something.

      • 5% Hov

        Wtf? U condensed 48 laws to one obvious statement?
        What are we arguing bout here.

      • J_buddha

        I like 50th law because he talked about Black history that I never knew. Nah we not arguing. We cool bro. The 50th law was ill though. I like Mastery, too. I just think the 50th law was amazing. That book immortalized 50 cent. It made 50 Cent a historical figure.

      • 5% Hov

        I didn’t like 50th Law as much cause felt it confused the 48 – but I feel you.
        Smart move by 50 – definitely a good tool book for life.

      • J_buddha

        A lot of people think that Black people are headed for destruction, but the children that survive and prosper are going to breed children even stronger and smarter. All we have to do is keep striving.

  • stackzscrilla

    Dear 2 quarters,

    You had your shine. Aint nobody checkin’ for you like that. Stick to that vitamin water money and help out the community that supported you.

    • Capbussa

      Crab in the barrel ass nigga

      • StackzScrilla

        That’s how you feel? I respect your opinion but that’s far from the truth. G-Unit back in the G was nice. I’m all for my peoples earning that long money but i have to question 50’s character. What has he done for YOU lately? Enlightened you? Lyrically promoted a positive message to our hip-hop generation? Helped pay your bills? The hood needs positive influence and a man of 50 stature has a perfect opportunity to use Hip-Hop as segue to help make a difference. Last time i checked, how much money you got, how many jump-off’s you got in your stable or how may ratchets you done popped doesn’t help the impoverished hoods of America. Instead, cats out here that are influenced by there favor rapper are catching buck rogers dates or even worse death trying to attain big fame and fortune. Check yourself. When God blesses you with talents and gifts, use them for the glory of God.

      • justmathoughts

        what has any rapper done for YOU (or anyone else for that matter) lately?

      • stackzscrilla

        Depends on your perspective. Reach Record artist Lecrae has done a lot for me in terms of spreading a spirit filled message in EVERY song I’ve heard. Before you go attacking my faith in God as a Christian please understand his message is for everyone, including pimps, players, bangers, hustlers, prostitutes, drug addicts etc. His message is to lead you to faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. If you live for the acceptance of others, you will die internally from there rejection. The machine make you hot one minute and spit you out the next. All im saying is Trust God with all your heart and count your blessings.

      • justmathoughts

        i would never attack your faith in God…man is man and as men we are all flawed…with that said we should try not to judge a man based on his flaws, it guarantees flaws in your judgement… my comment was purely sarcastic because there isnt too many “positive messages” in mainstream music… still, that doesnt mean that 50 cent or whatever rapper for that matter isnt doing positive things “behind the scenes”… if you ask me, seeing someone basically come from nothing to something and continuing to prosper is pretty positive, but to each his own..

      • stackzscrilla

        I can respect that. However, my point was to edify and not to judge 50. I would like to see secular hip hop artist infiltrate mainstream music and spread something uplifting and inspirational versus the same old recycled topics.

      • justmathoughts

        point taken…..i feel that 100%

      • $21384666

        Now kiss and make you two ^^^

      • justmathoughts

        naa, i just rather agree to disagree on this subject… i understand his point, thats all… the 100% thing was about recycled topics in rap nowadays

      • sakiru oresanwo

        50 doesn’t necessarily have to give out money or spread what ever hit is you want him to. He is making power moves and is a successful BLACK man. if that isn’t spreading positive vibes to EVERY body, especially people who come from the ghetto then I don’t know what is.

      • Chrisblackusa

        Then get on your secular hiphop hustle and make power moves..dont wait for the man..be the man…kirk franklin gave you a platform so run with it…oh thats right the biggest hustlers in our community dont make power business moves for the people either just bring that money on sunday , sing a few hyms and see ya later..churches all about jesus as 1 but dont bank as 1….

      • Capbussa

        You talking all this christian shit but you comin off like a born again hater tho….take ya ass back 2 church and get a refund fool cuz the preacher done fucked up

      • I gotta say I busted out laughing hard as fk….

    • NEWSKULL

      giving back to the community that’s what 50 is about… please do some research…

  • Pingback: Scherzo TV | Hip-Hop Rumors: Check Out 50 Cent’s New Deal!()

  • That’s a lot of money for a simple comeback…But 50 is used to those kind of offers. Lets see how it turns out.

  • Richie TheKid

    Congrats Mr Jackson making these haters salty. If this report is true it beats Jay-z 100mill deal

    • 5% Hov

      Not even. But congrats to 50.

  • RayStantz

    A big fan of this dude and the moves he make. Perfect way that he setup Animal Ambition with Power. If you don’t believe 50s on an upswing right now you delusional

    • Dope

      Edit: Wrong reply button, sorry for that.

  • bigdoe6

    Regardless of how strategic this guy is and how much money he makes, people are going to keep hating on 50. Black man becomes successful, Black people hate on him. Smh.

    • Dope

      It’s got nothing to do with him being black. 50 has haters because he came in the game with a cocky ”I’m the boss” attitude. Some like it, some don’t. Then to further prove he’s the boss, he had beefs with most people in the game, and most importantly he sparred with Young Money and MMG, which have a lot of fans these days, and those fans will hate on 50 for attacking their team. Simple as that.

    • AlbertoRipRon

      Why every nigga gotta bring up some racism, “black folks hate they own kind”, where’s Al Sharpton posts? You niggas need to shut up. Homeboy is making money, end of story.

    • Celz

      50 is the biggest hater in HipHop.. Stop it.. The nicca talks shyt, hates, starts beef, shades, and disses any and everyone for publicity.. He’s gettin money, he used to be in the streets, shyt he used to rap good.. But I have no interest in meetin the nicca.. He’s an asshole and people don’t like assholes..

  • chocboywonder

    Don’t know how true this is, but trust me the deal will not be for only music…it will be a 360 deal like Jay-Z’s. Live-Nation gets paid off everything with the label “Roc-Nation” – So everything done under that brand (music, label, touring, sport management, etc…) Live Nation gets paid (prolly majority of the profits). If 50 does a deal with them, it will be structured the same…they give him money up front, and take a % on ALL his earnings.

    • 300 mil upfront is not bad for a % of future earnings. #IJS

      • hoeyuno

        Haha not bad at all

    • 5% Hov

      Roc Nation is 50/50 venture.. not a 360. It only includes touring and start-up funds of other ventures.
      You got it twisted bruh.

      However – this offer for 50 prolly is a 360…. Madonna style etc.

  • Markus

    Can’t see him being handed a quarter of a billion dollars if he’s not relevant anymore.

    • justmathoughts

      hes not relevant to YOU

      • scullyson

        Lol

      • Markus

        Numbers never lie

      • justmathoughts

        lol you edited your comment… im done

      • Markus

        My comment has not been edited. You’re mistaken and that’s not even my style.

      • $21384666

        U got u bruh

  • Weedras

    ya’ll keep talking about relevance as if rap albums are where the money is anymore as it stands hiphop has now become the promoter of all the negative stereotypes that us colored folk should want to have nothing to do with and is one of the reasons we are prejudged… so while this man is making moves in the corporate arena ya’ll questioning ‘rap relevance’ smh? dude already has a deal with disney via his SMS audio that will in the future net him a killing this man is making moves, moves that should be congratulated or we’d rather see him in the bullshit jumping ppl, chain snatching and all that to be relevant?

    • Good point except…when has the money ever been in album sales?

      • he made money off all of his albums. i also hear sms is partnering with intel…

      • Not saying he didn’t make $$ off his albums, just that SMS, Vitamin water, etc., makes more.

      • 5% Hov

        SMS has yet make any profit – its all in the re-up.
        This partnership will push the valuation tho. Bloomberg is saying maybe $700 mil.

      • NEWSKULL

        SMS has yet make any profit?…

        NPD analyst Ben Arnold put SMS Audio’s market share in the premium headphone space at under 1 percent.

        we are talking about a $ 2 billion market (U.S.)… $ 8 Billion market worldwide… so sms is making a lil under 80 mill a year… that was before introducing their fitness headphone line…

        check this out:

        Fitness headphones make up over 50 percent of a headphone market worth $2 billion in the U.S. alone, according to research from the NPD Group.

        50 Cent wants a bigger take of that 50 percent. hence the partnership with Carmelo Anthony then Intel. They released yesterday the first biometric earbud.

        SMS Audio is distributed in 60 countries all over the globe. Not bad for a 3 year old company.

        just based on that the live nation deal might be true… since they take a cut from the touring AND the merchandising… so sms audio headphones, g-unit clothing, S.K. energy drink etc… plus they invest in outside ventures SMS Boxing promotions event (already set up), G-Unit television and films (POWER), cheetah vision (straight to DVDs)….

        if it’s true then 50 get backs in 2015 will be huge.

      • I agree.

      • Weedras

        Respecting the great info being traded right here learned a few things i haven’t come across yet…

      • You know the comments always be popping with either knowledge or the funniest ‘chet on the web!

      • 5% Hov

        Your mis-understanding profit and value.
        I agree it is likely to be and looking like it will be extremely profitable.

      • Immortal

        50 is making moves. Folks were clowning him when he had a minor sponsorship with a NASCAR team. It didn’t do anything other than open a new untapped market he used. In some of the races you can see teams using his headphones. That’s free advertising to another demographic. Whoever is giving him his business advice or whomever 50 trusts needs to get a job with the federal reserve; both of them are some intelligent folks, and both seem to be winning. 5% Noir mentioned the Intel deal. Looking long term, Apple bought Beats and Samsung is Apple’s rival, so it would almost make some sense for Samsung to sit back and quietly plot on buying them out. 50 could wind up being a quiet rival (no beef, just cash) to Dre in the money department.

  • Psyer

    Damn!? If this is accurate, this nigga is arguably the best business man hip-hop has produced…definitely top 5. I read he just did a deal with Intel for SMS audio as well. I don’t know the #s on that one yet, but Intel is a multi-billion dollar company with a very strong brand reputation and global presence…I’m interested in what he gon do with that energy drink now??

    I think Jay-Z deal with Live Nation was half of this? Correct me if I’m wrong…

    Salute this nigga Fif

    • 5% Hov

      ” arguably the best business man hip-hop has produced”

      I gotta agree. He certainly Diddy and Hov status in terms of diversification.
      He has built numerous companies now – 50 is the ultimate hustler.

      You are half wrong on the Hov Nation deal tho – the first round was 150mil – he re-d up twice already – plus he own royalties. 50 will have split money with intescope as they own his catalogue.

      However – I’m hearing this Intel venture puts SMS valuation around $700million – if true 50 owns 51% of the company – plus his Water, The success of “power” …- he catching up that Forbes list.

      If this Live Nation Deal is true – he could out Hov Hov in the next few years.

      • Immortal

        I think it could be sooner. If Samsung sits in the cut and later buys out SMS. Could be a power move and push 50 money wise into the Dre realm. Jay would be a long forgotten afterthought if that went through. On the Jay note, I would be interested to see what his actual investment portfolio looks like. I’m not an expert, but I remember some issues with his 40/40 clubs shutting down, and haven’t heard anything new investment wise from him in a minute. His champagne was in the movie Prometheus, and he did some signings, but those were through CAA if I’m not mistaken.

      • 5% Hov

        I like ur mind nigga – Samsung on SMS would be a good move on their part – they are natural revivals to apple.

        U right about Hov – but Did u see lil wayne call his song Dusse – I see Bieber with a bottle too… that is gotta add to his bottom line. People drink cognac more regularly than Champagne.
        Maybe thats his game plan.

      • dee

        I agree what you saying about Dusse but If this deal is true along with Intel deal and with the success of Power he will pass jay in no longer than 3 years maybe shorter. Another thing the Power series was such a success you know the cable company is going to give him big money for a few more seasons.

      • 5% Hov

        You right – but never count Hov out he always comes with something.

      • SBRon

        Gotta remember, Jay was a victim of bad timing…Dude would’ve surpassed 1Bil by now if the RE market didn’t crash (5-Star “J Hotels” around the globe), causing his financing to dry up. Not to mention, the OTB deal that didn’t go through because one of his partners was shady or some shit…

      • 5% Hov

        All true.

      • NEWSKULL

        it’s a 10 year deal… how can he re-up’d it twice?… Read that:

        ” Live Nation is expected to furnish Jay-Z, born Shawn Carter, with $5 million in seed money annually for his own label, publishing arm and management company, with significantly more funds available for future acquisitions and expansion. He will also receive a $25 million upfront payment and $10 million per album for a minimum of three albums over the next decade” …

      • hollywood tee

        When did he reup dont remember that if Im wrong I’m wrong and it didnt total 3. And if him and bee split trust me it’s all down hill from there she was and always the bigger of the two check his net worth before her and now .

      • 5% Hov

        The 2nd re-up’d in 2012 for unknown amount – He brags about it on “three kings”…. most likely another 150mil.

        We wont know until the end of the contract.

        And the 3rd live nation just fronted 40 million for the on the run tour – which is 33% split between Parkwood (bey) and roc nation (jay) and live nation

      • El Dogga

        Wrong. I’ll paraphase

        “Next live nation deal they talking 250!!! I’m holding out for 3, 275 and I just might agree”

        The thing about live nation is they are 360 deals. So they get a cut of all your music revenue and touring money. They DO NOT get to hop on anything else you own outside of music!

        That deal may include the entire Unit though so whoever is on Gunit records will be under Live Nation

      • NEWSKULL

        They do… it all depends on the way the artist decide to structure the deal with them… that’s how the 150 mill jay-z live nation deal was structured…

        ” Live Nation will reportedly contribute $5 million each year in overhead for five years and offer $25 million to finance Jay-Z’s external acquisitions and investments, plus $10 million per album for a minimum of three albums within the deal’s term. Jay-Z will also receive another $20 million for other rights including publishing and licensing.”

      • 5% Hov

        For real – Hov was never going to have “boss” again.

      • 5% Hov

        “Roc Nation” is 50/50 partnership ….. 50/50

        Taht means they front that cash and take 50% of the profits.

        I’m saying I don’t what the re-up was (no one does) but I know he already spent 100mil of that by late 2012.

        Rita Ora, Blueprint 3 tours, WTT tours etc… Plus he ust signed Rihanna – that must be at least 100mil.

        U right – he prolly did re-up for 275 or 3 like he says.

        Madonnas deal is 360 structure. Not all deals are equal.

      • NEWSKULL

        plus the deal he got with Effen Vodka….

      • Psyer

        Good shit…I looked for some #s, but didn’t find any specifics. Where are you seeing that 700M being thrown around? What’s up with SK Energy?

      • NEWSKULL

        same here for the 700M…
        SK Energy is doing “meh” TBH but it is a young company… they only sell shots not drinks… they are not trying to compete with “monster” and “red bull” yet… with that said:
        6th place in the top selling energy shots brands
        2013 sales $ 5 million for s.k. … the number 1 “5 hour energy” did $ 1.1 billion … number 2 “6 hour power” did $ 47 million…

  • Psyer

    While we at it…I think some of y’all niggas may want to consider redefining the word RELEVANT. Seems like some of y’all make it synonymous with “shit I don’t like”

    Winning is always relevant, but maybe that’s just my opinion? Idk…

    into a real giant.

    We live in a world of:

    No black owned

    – Corporations
    – Supermarket chains
    – Car Manufacturers
    – Household electronics

    – Computer manufacturer
    – Software company
    etc

    Anybody who can help make a change is appreciated!

    • Jonathan Bacher

      Well put

    • therealjjohnson

      No black owned corporations? That’s false. No black owned software companies? That’s false. Once you have a black owned grocery store, and car manufacturer (laughable because it’s only 3) then what?

      1. You’re wrong about what we don’t have
      2. Those things are so superficial
      3. List what we do have. Promote positivity vs negatively. Also, demand “us” to control things that matter. I don’t care about house hold electronics, I do care about who’s teaching my kids, taking care of our Health, policing our streets, and creating our laws and policies.

      • RightOn

        Bingo!

      • 5% Hov

        I he lives in burbs. Maybe he’s never heard of a black owned business. LOL

    • The_Good_Life

      Shouts out to the clowns who voted you up. A simple search will show you all the black owned corporations. Plus in regards to software, electronics and car manufacturing, black men and women own lifetime patents for inventing certain components that’s necessary for those products to function. That’s a lifetime licensing check that goes from generation to generation…

    • @ The_Good_Life and the realjjohnson.
      Those are some few examples. But globally insignificant.
      How many Chinese corporations are there in this world. Korean.
      Japanese. Where are we. We have a whole continent and
      nothing comes from Africa that really contributes to world trade.
      It’s time we change that by our own efforts.
      Stop the advertisers to make you dumb consumers and followers
      of trends.

      • Celz

        Stop killin yourself man.. Do better.. Just because all you keep up with rappers.. Check how much homie who invented the Super Soaker is worth.. I guess he doesn’t exist because he doesn’t make it rain.. FOH.. I’m a supervisor at a black owned business and we work in almost every city in Orange County, CA..

        Let’s start with me and you getting our own businesses

    • Dope

      1. You’re wrong because there are black owned businesses.
      2. Even if every business was black owned the company is going to employ the person who approaches them with worthy ideas, not thugs just because the boss is black and sad ”Hey, go to the ghetto and get me some black boys, I want to empower those men and I’m sure they’ll fit right in this company with the complete lack of knowledge and job experience we usually require”.

      So um… Which one is it?

  • WORLD DOMINATOR

    MAYBE a $300k deal, but he hasn’t done $50m in total concert grosses in the last 15 year career, THAT’S pure BS that he’d be worth a TENTH of that! He can’t fill large clubs with G-Unot!

  • brollya

    wow roc nation…. i wanna see this…. see if he can work under jay z…. heard he partners wit intel too…. nigga gettin money everywhere

    • not Roc Nation, the article said Live Nation. Live Nation is bigger than Jay-Z!!! matter of fact Roc Nation is under Live Nation (if I’m correct!!!)

  • chicagostyl

    does the industry fuk wit 50 like that? i never hear ppl in hollywood or hollyhood talking about how cool or whatever 50 is. All i ever hear abou this guy is he’s beefing with someone or making money

    • 5% Hov

      Check Forbes. The industry love Fif.

      • chicagostyl

        well yeah I know corp america luvs fif (and I guess that’s all that matters) but im just wondering if artists and actors and athletes fuk with Fif. I just imagine him being the dude that wasnt invited to a party but shows up anyway like kanye.

      • Capbussa

        Carmelo (athelete) is partners with him, he has actors on his show (Power) that fuks wit him and he just did a show with Drake and Lil Wayne (artist) 2 days ago in CT so nigga I must ask… Da fuk u talkin bout???

      • dont forget he got timbaland down with sms

      • 5% Hov

        what they said.

      • RightOn

        Hey word here is fans. Does he still have a following? Based on the sales of his next album, I think it’s safe to say people are just not feeling fif’s music any more.

      • solmon

        He did make some money on his last album dummy.. Do your research

      • NEWSKULL

        that album was supposed to be a mixtape… that’s the way he announced it at CES in January 2014… it is also the same day Intel approached sms audio for their partnership… couple of months later he left interscope , went the indi route, and said it was an album not a mixtape… 50 dropped a video for every track on this album before the release date, TBH he didn’t expect it to sell… he used it as a viral marketing campaign and to see how the independent world works… STREET KING IMMORTAL is the real deal…. if S.K.I is a flop, then it is safe to say he doesn’t have a following…

    • doesnt amtter, the hollywood people will use him to make money of who ever 50s fan base consists of.., and thats rather wide ranged

  • MorganFreemanCousin

    After seeing that show Power I don’t even care if he makes anymore music. He just needs to keep that show going.

        G-unit’s washed they need Game lmao

      • mack92

        that’s funny because the REMIXES that The Unit have put out near the same time has more views than that song…Nah son Game need G Unit

      • Jeff Van Gundy

        stop actin like u went to every single hiphop outlet and counted views dont reply to me with some bullshit

      • mack92

        So the truth is bullshit now? Just go back into your deluded bubble now

      • Jeff Van Gundy

        your just a delusional 50 cent stan lol Bigger than me has 10 mill views on worldstar and a view count doesn’t determine whats hot and whats not anyways so go bring ur lame arguments else where

      • mack92

        Exactly WORLDSTAR…nothing gets put on the website about 50 so there’s no point looking plus Bigger than me was exclusive to worldstar…I’m a 50 stan? Nah just pointing out the facts oh and just seen one your comments about why people act like game is bipolar that’s because he flip flops more than a fish out of water he even went at jay z and tried to take it back….It’s clear you’re games number 1 dickrider

      • Jeff Van Gundy

        your not pointing out facts your just saying random BS to win a argument like you actually counted every view on every website….. tht doesnt even determine whats hot anyways… im not even a game dickrider my fav rapper is Jay lol 50s wack af to me now tho someone need to shoot him in his mouth so he can get his flow back.. whatever tho im bored of this internet beef peace out

      • 5% Hov

        I agree u should stop.

        Its less an internet beef – more internet battery ;o(

      • Capbussa

        Havent heard a Game song besides “How we do” and ‘Hate it or love it” in years bruh….. stick a fork in that nigga cuz hes done

      • Jeff Van Gundy

        Yeah thats why Game went plat with Doctors Advocate and Lax… lmao shut up nigga we all kno u was bumpin one blood Game been droppin hot albums consistently and dont even compare trash Animal Ambition to Jesus Piece

      • Capbussa

        Only “One Blood” niggaz is listening too is Junior Reeds version…. And stop liking your own comment, it makes you look like a douche bag

    • Anthonyd Smith

      Sounds like somebody is salty right now

      • Judah Nazayar

        that makes no sense. everybody isnt emotionally involved with these entertainers. Thats for lil femme niggas with no male role models growing up

    • 5% Hov

      Game definately needs the Unit right now.

      I think 50 may let him back in for a global tour IF the money makes sense and Game stays humble for the next year or so….

      • Jeff Van Gundy

        Nah Game workin on his own label Blood Money he about to drop a compilation album for his label.. he would def would collaborate with them tho cuz he aint a nigga that holds a grudge.. and both game and 50 are millionaires they dont need shit.. this reunion only really helps Banks Buck n Yayo eat

      • 5% Hov

        game has yet to show his “label” will make or ever made money.
        Game would sign on in heartbeat – Imagine Gunit in a “up in smoke style tour”

        But u right 50 aint likely to do it unless it REALLY makes super sense not just money wise but GUNIT legacy wise…

        If Game continues to make half decent music and doesnt go bi polar again maybe in future… not impossible IMO.

      • Jeff Van Gundy

        Lol idk where u have been because Game been droppin nice music Jesus Piece was hot OKE was hot Game is a dope rapper he has made a real respectable career for himself lol both him and 50 did their thing regardless, a reunion isnt necessary for either of em but it would be huge if they did it… and he just created his label recently.. idk why people act like its game being bipolar, he tries to squash the beef cuz he knows itll be huge for business but 50 holds a grudge n throws shots so game flips again lol if its not peace then its war

      • 5% Hov

        50 owns the pubishing for all 5 albums that were Interscope.
        OKE wasn’t for sale so wtf?
        People act like Game is bipolar because….. he is.

      • Jeff Van Gundy

        do u believe everything that comes out of 50s mouth lol? First of all Game was signed to aftermath originally not g unit that was a joint venture to speed up the process of promoting game, thats why 50 wasnt able to do Game like he did buck….. and i wasnt talking about sales i was talking about the actual music idk y u fans sit at home and count sales like tht determines whose nice thats like saying Nelly is better than Nas but whatever man this is childish idc lol they both millionaires they both had great careers whatever but dont act like Game wasnt able to hold his own without them niggaz cuz he went plat wit LAX n Doctors Advocate (which was his arguably his best album) n he still put out dope music

      • 5% Hov

        1) How many times has Game said – “F 50” then “Nah 50 cool” then “F 50” then “Nah 50 cool”

        I seen it with my own eyes at least 4 times.

        2) I aint nobodies “fan” (…. except maybe Erykah Badu’s)

        3) I aint never mentioned sales or who was “better”….

      • Mazibaby22

        who dont need the unit what the hell G-unit can do yea they can go on tour and get some quick $ overseas but they done and over 50 the only one who scrate the moves he making he aint never goin broke seen what happen to Dame not 50 he on some Master P ish foreal

    • rs_yes

      You want to hear something real??? You can ask 10 random white people who 50 cent is, I bet they know. You ask 10 random white people who The Game is, I bet not one of them would know.
      Then go ask 10 *random* black folks the same question, I would bet my mortgage payment that more people know 50 then they know the Game. #ImJustSayin
      My point is, the GAME needs 50 IF, and only IF he wants to gain more exposure.

  • Jeff Van Gundy

    50 cent lines: hollow tips shoot u in ur head/ infrared beam silencer extended clip/ i make bread/ shoot u in the leg/ bang bang shoot em with my 4-5

    Meanwhile he chills with white people in Connecticut

    • Judah Nazayar

      hahahahaha…. i love the truth. keep em coming

  • A RAB MONEY

    50 knows how to keep winning, one of the best business heads in the industry

  • Southcidal

    Stop dyck riding. Why would Live Nation give five oh 300 mil? Based on a G-Unit reunion? GTFOH!! The only way five oh gets that much money is if he brings the cracker with him at every tour stop. You NY ducks either afraid of five oh or is just pulling this shiit with hopes that a lame as NY act gets back popping.

    • Knickfan4life

      they would give him 300 million because they will probably take a cut of every t shirt, button and bottle water sold has nothng to do with whose ‘popping’ hip hop been garbage everywhere for a minute.

    • 5% Hov

      Because he is an excellent business man and would flip that bread into films merchandise and new business….. where u been?

    • JohnDGomez

      NY has always been popping nothings changed just a bigger game now everybodies eating and theres nothing wrong with that.

  • Merk E Waters

    So you REALLY think they are going to give this guy1/3 of Jay-Z’s net worth on one deal? Be Clear…he is not that guy. People are STILL convinced that 50 is a brilliant business man. His 2014 net worth was one of the smallest percentage increases of any entertainer in his tax bracket. Most of that came off of interest.
    Ask Mobb Deep, Olivia, MOP, Spider Loc, Hot Rod…I’ll stop there…what a great business man he is. If you can find most of them. Mobb Deep one of the best to eber do it, and 50 wrote a bunch of their hooks on the worst album in their catalog.
    SMS headphones? He copied someone elses business model, poorly, and they never took off.
    Albums? He has gotten progressively worse. A lot of people see this guy as the Buster Douglas of hip hop. came in knocked out the reigning champ, and it has been down hill ever since. PeopleI say he went independent because he wanted to, but he did because he had to. Jimmy Iovine, who just sold Beats to Apple for 3 billion, cut 50 Cent from interscope. I can’t hear anyone on the internet defending 50 when Jimmy Iovine is letting this guy go. That’s a REAL boss saying that this ivestment has outlived its usefulness.
    His show, Power has found an audience, but in comparison to major cable players ( Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, etc.) his show is no threat (check the ratings).
    He caught lightning in a bottle with that Vitamin water deal. That doesn’t make him a smart business man, that makes him a Lotto winner.

    • Dope

      He’s not on Hov and Diddy level of business, nor can his show be GoT or his headphones Beats, (but not being the best of the best, doesn’t meant you don’t get money, just less) but to talk about all the guys who were associated with him and are now long forgotten makes no sense at all. Diddy has even a bigger list of artists he had on his label, who are now nobodies while he sips ciroc from a diamond glass. Dame Dash was the man, with Jay, now he’s looking to sue anyone he can to get a quick buck.

      The point is, you don’t judge how good someone is at getting money by looking at some other people who don’t have it. That fact alone only shows he was better then Mobb Deep, Olivia, MOP etc.. at staying afloat. You should only look at that person and how they get around, and 50, like him or hate him, manages to sail his ship straight.

    • mack92

      Did 50 come into your house eat your food,fuck your woman and take the last of your money? because it seems like your’re annoyed about a guy possibly having a good deal on his hands….and for you saying his headphones never took off i don’t think Lucasfilms and Intel do business with something that’s not making money and you can’t compare his show on Starz to Game of Thrones and other big shows especially when the major broadcasters are spending 10 times more money to market them shows

      • mornstar

        i think dat guy got personal issues wid fif.

      • NEWSKULL

        and 100 times more to produce them… Starz is so happy with the result…

      • Merk E Waters

        Naivety is a blessing for you my friend. And your argument was lost in your futile attempt to insult me. Did I seriously expect any civil dialogue from people who see it differently than those who see that rumor as just that? I asked a simple question…does anyone think that he was REALLY getting that deal. The Stans do, obviously. My premise is simple: Despite what ANYBODY says, the numbers do not lie. Look at the growth of his wealth annually.

    • Dreday410

      “SMS headphones? He copied someone elses business model, poorly, and they never took off.”

      – SMS just signed a major deal with INTEL to produce more electronics other then just Headphones and SMS also owns STARWARS brand and DISNEY WORLD brands logos

      “cut 50 Cent from interscope”

      – They paid him $23 Million dollars before he left

      “Power has found an audience, but in comparison to major cable players ( Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, etc.) his show is no threat”

      – They are 2 total different shows so course they going to track different audience (71% black) and how is those show a threat to POWER ? The wire did not out preform The Sopranos but still banked money

      “He caught lightning in a bottle with that Vitamin water deal. That doesn’t -make him a smart business man, that makes him a Lotto winner.”

      – So what about his $200 Million Dollar Movie Deal he signed for his movie company.

      • 5% Hov

        GAME OVER>

      • NEWSKULL

        come on dude… sms do not own the star wars brand… it is just a partnership between Disney (Starwars brand owner) and SMS Audio… but still it says a lot about the quality of sms audio headphones …

      • Dreday410

        They have the rights to STARWARS brand LOGO for electronics along with Disney LOGO not the company

      • Weedras

        they only have the rights for a line of headphones at the moment …. when you say they own the stars brand logo for electronics you’re kinda exaggerating being that the stars wars brand already puts out electronics in the for of toys and games for decades…

    • robgee42

      Wow,sure 50 is losing alot of sleep over your comments.You are talking about a youung man who could easily be dead right now,but has been blessed to use the brains he has to now be considered by his peers as one of the most creative to come from nothing and now has given so many people a place to work,and be able to feed there families.You keep up the good work .Moron.
