Hypocritical Beatdown

So this is the new G-Unit Radio 22 cover, ay? I’ll give it to Fiddy, he sure knows how to grab the attention of pontential consumers. On the other hand, his own marketing tactics may just come back to haunt him. Now, if I were a rival rapper and I had the daunting task of choosing a mixtape cover of my own, where would I start?

Probably with last year’s GQ Men of the Year issue.

That photo shoot deserved two snaps in Z formation. Zestier than a bag of salsa flavored Doritos, yes ma’am.

The war of words between 50 and Nas is still going on strong. At a post-VMA performance at the Hammerstein Ballroom, Ludacris invited Pharrell and God’s son to share the stage. But it was Nas who ultimately stole the show. During his performance of “Made You Look,” he substituted the word 5-0 with 50, rhyming “This ain’t Fifty, it’s Nas yo.” Still waters run deep.

    It’s pretty tough to defend those photos.

  • john cochran

    Fifty can always rely on his mixtape hustle, even if his albums kinda suck. Him picking on Diddy should get him some attention.

    What makes these pix worse is that 50 gave the ok to have them published.

  • Tone

    Yall niggas stupid yall dont know how much the nigga got paid for this shit if yall was smart yall would relize 50 a hustler thats the reason for the pictures

  • Lil Gucci

    Niggas need to check 50. Cuz the nigga will say something about what a rappers doing and then do it himself. The most recent one is kanye west. He said something pretaining to kanye being gay more than likely about the way he dresses and look at the photos 50 got. 50 talked about ja rule singing and what did 50 do on his next single? The niggas pussy like game.

    I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.

    I recently had a wall mounted beer bottle opener put in my kitchen. While I am not ready to give up my old bottle opener. In any case, its very nice having it as a backup in case I lose my keychain opener.
