Fifty Cent Lost…

Years ago Lloyd Banks told Fisty Scent to switch his style up and watch the money pile up. Lloyd wasn’t lying either. Fisty Scent might be the wealthiest rapper of all time. Money is good that’s for sure, but it doesn’t make you anywhere near the best artist of your genre. If that were the case then we’d regard Mark Kostabi as the greatest painter ever and Britney Spears would be the greatest singer alongside Celine Dion. It’s only in a capitalist culture like ours where we can confuse someone’s bank account ledger with their actual value to our daily lives. This is why Donald Trump constantly receives the opportunity to brand products and services with his name.

When Fisty Scent applied the ‘formula’ to the content of his music he became a rap juggernaut. The ‘hood loved him and the suburbs fetishized him. Fisty became the embodiment of that N.O.R.E. song called ‘Superthug’. Tupac had gone to that place as well but after a while the bullet wounds took their toll. Fisty however, only seemed to get stronger after his exit from the hospital. It was like you couldn’t tell him nothing. He went into the gym and began to develop a body that looked like Barry Bonds to add to the superthug image. This was the formula that made Fisty the champion and gave him the good life. He created a visage that said everything I rap about is everything I am. I wonder though if all of that imagery doesn’t eventually take a toll on someone’s artistry. There’s really no place to grow from that point. Will Fisty be able to perform his music when he is forty years old? Keep in mind, that’s only five years from now.

Fisty Scent has planned a homecoming of sorts for the release of his latest album. The onetime King of Rap is trying to return to glory as the King of New York. It wasn’t enough for him to perfect on Tupac’s character, but now he is recreating the persona of Frank White, the late, great Notorious Big as he travels through the city performing a concert in each of the boros. This smacks of slight desperation to me in order to recapture the hearts and minds of his O.G. fans. In my opinion, Fisty has already climbed the mountain of rap music stardom. Why walk down the mountain into a valley just to climb to the top again? It’s time for Fisty to find himself a higher mountain. It’s time for him to go Hollywood.

Right now Kanghey has the attention of the ‘hood by creating anthems that inspire people to go out and buy expensive clothing and shit. Kangaye appeals to the ‘hood on a level we can relate to. The ‘hood can’t afford a Ferrari like Fisty, but we can spend our next rent check on a $500 Louis Vuitton baseball cap. This is what the ‘hood likes anyhoo. We like to look rich when we are standing at the bus stop, or in front of the corner store. So if you ask me who has the ‘hood onsmash I will tell you that it’s the boy Kangay West with his extra medium t-shirts and his tight jeans on. Just don’t let the underwear show too much or else you will have to answer the flashing lights of the police.

Oh, and by the way, Fisty Scent lost.

Especially with the oh so creative fisty and kangye, BRAVO. 50 has, can, and i’m sure will go hard again at anybody. People say he fell off… Man wouldn’t we all like to be makin tons of money while people say we fell off. And all this BS about damn 50 makin those candy shop pop songs. Billy you like girls don’t ya? So why not appeal to dem a lil, huh? Do something better with your time like how xxl puts a bunch of BS under the bangers section… 50 gonna outsell kanye hands down. Not even gonna be close.

    Billy,
    I like this post, but it’s kind of funny and wierd that you basically implied Kanye’s new album is the best thing since sliced bread for hip hop in today’s era without insulting him and then you go and use that homophobic Kangay bullshit again. I don’t like the way he dresses, but I’m not gonna care if he makes good music (no pun intended). Still, it’s a good post. Right on about 50 Cent’s image he created for himself.

  • http://www.xxlmag.com EReal

    I dont know what hood you’re in, but Khangey isnt really runnin away with this. With all the haters, I was actually suprised, but people have been givin credit on 50s shit, sayin its hotter than Khangey.
    I mean, are his two singles really getting that much more burn? Are they really better? They’re pretty much the same to me, getting money.
    Khangey’s shit seems ahead of its time to me. I know theres alot of crossover goin on, but he missed me with the whole takin it back to the 80′s/Techno schtick. Maybe if I was in a theatre wearing fake ass “Summer School” 80s glasses with lights and fog watching jap anime, Id rock with Khangey’s shit like u did Billy. But, uh, not so much on the daily. “Cant tell me nothing” and “Stronger” are good tracks, no doubt. The hooks and beats crazy, but his verses got me sleepin. As far as shit that you bump in the ride, I know I’ve been hearin alot more 50 than Khangey comin out the speakers.
    50 hasnt gone anywhere if you’re listening. The mixtape shite he’s put out has been bangin. His verse on the first track of Banks’ shit was so sick. His work on Buck’s album tight. Funeral Music was sick as well. This whole thing has become more about 50 taking a loss than anything else. Its the fans vs. the haters, nobody on the streets are really arguin this point. Its us internets cats arguin this shit. Sometimes people lose sight of the fact that its entertainment and take things way too personal. Yeah 50 has his marketing technique, and its alot cheaper than Jay’s. I mean, I agree with Dallas on the point that 50 does need to go hollywood, but his album is acutally good. Its different, but good. 50 has never used colabs so far except within G-Unit and IMO tried to go in a different musical direction with this, and I for one got it. Now I am also an admitted G-Unit fan, so I like that sound, but IMO the 50 people are looking for is the 50 that will be on BISD. That to me is what this album sets up for, is BISD.
    Either way its gonna be what it is on 9/11 (God Bless the Dead) and when it comes down to it, it should be about the music, even tho 50 always makes it about sales. And as far as the music, I havent had any of my home boys (real not internets associates) be like, Yo, that new Kanye, that shits hot. Or bumpin Kangey in their whip, all Im hearin around at least my city is how “I get Money” is crazy, the Scream NYC shit, the billionaire remix, thats been the buzz on at least my streets, and thats my .02.

    I’m not trying to be funny, but is this whole Kanye/50 Cent thing about the number 1 and 2 spot on the billboard top 200 or the Rap/Hip Hop Charts? Kenny Chesney is dropping the same day. he may not take the number one spot, but he most def could take the number 2 spot and push Kanye or 50 down to # 3 on the top 200. Just don’t be oblivious to whats going on outside of the hip hop world. They are both lucky that High School Musical aint drop on the same day as them. lol.

    Good Post Billy,
    This is the same ish that I’ve been telling my boys over the past few days. Just because 50 is richer, doesnt make him better. Kanye just dropped a dope piece of art, and 50 just dropped. He’s not even trying anymore. And when you’re only in it for the money, which 50 apparantly is, where do you get new motivation from after you haven “gotten rich and didnt die trying?”

    Ye, seems to be driven by his desire to push his own craft and the genre itself, as a hip-hop fan, how can you not respect that.

    Once again, good post mayne.

    No controversy means no career for five oh. The federal hip hop police division clown. If there are hip hop police, you know they got undercovers.Game wasnt jokin bout dude meeting at the fedreral building. Fuck you think they was talkin bout? Hip Hop? Some Gangsta Funeral Music Shit? I can’t say too much, but the plan was for him to bring down rap from the inside. Also he tried to make it cool to incriminate yourself on camera as a “felon” Independent labels couldn’t be allowed to outsell or get more publicity than the majors, so a lot of independent acts who did well critically and sales wise during the falsetto Government-UNIT reign were fucked over by magazines like this one, by covering CONTROVERSY and BEEF which Gov. Unit had plenty of. That why the rap game seemed to be dead for a while. It’s like how the Murder Inc definitely made too much money. But what’s funny is that the plan didn’t work out for everybody cause niggas is the South don’t really battle rap and beef battle video blog, so they just showed the rap game some southern hospitality and start getting rich. Let them monkey ass beefin ass clowns entertain themselves for free. He did a job on New York, but everybody else already know he a fuckin fake ass image. This what’s up: whoever can’t RAP AND MANAGE THEIR FINANCES (HUSTLE & FLOW)IS OUT THE GAME. NO MORE MAJORS NO MORE GLORY-ONLY GOOD MUSIC FOR REAL FANS!!!!!!!

    the problem with hiphop is that there are to many faggs and when you call them out like Pimp c did people be like, you’re homophobic blah blah, no bitchies hiphop is now too soft.

    maybe Iam just a conservetive hiphop fan and really hate too see soft ass artist like kanye but shit is getting out of hand, niggas dressing faggity to appeal to white people I mean this nigga got a GQ man of year award after he started dressing funny.

    and why are niggas so obsessed with kanye’s lyrics the guy’s lyrics are just average people be like he got the lyrics no you are just gay and thats why you a coping kanye’s album, if it’s about the lyrics then go cope Immotial technics or talib, otherwise just shut it.

  • Vicious Seiger

    Enough with the 50 vs Kanye Crap. This isn’t david vs goliath or even Ali vs Frazier. Anybody who loves Hip Hop could care less about who sells more albums just put out good music (no pun intended). Some of the best hip hop albums of all time in some cases never even went platinum. It’s a shame when two grown ass black men are pushing this shit. I wouldn’t be surprised if this was a joint venture publicity stunt from Def Jam and Interscope to get the buzz going on two of the biggest albums of the year just to make their 4th quarter sales recoup the sagging sales of the past year. 50 wins do I get free car? Nope. Kanye wins do I get a vacation to Brazil? Hell No. SO CAN ANYBODY TELL ME WHY SHOULD I CARE WHO SELLS MORE ALBUMS?!!!

    PS – What artist at any major label doesn’t have image consultant/stylist?

  • LOWENDOFDACHI

    Some of you brothers kill me. Talk about a dude is gay because of how he dresses, or his music is not hard enough? Like someone before me said, hip hop isn’t all about “super thug” imagery and far fetched mafioso-esque tales.

    Just by reading some of these comments I can tell that alot of you guys are pre-pubescent or wear long ass white tees that look like dresses. Grown men wear clothes that fit. Stop wasting your money on Girbaud velcro strap pants, throwback jerseys, or fake ass ones/jordans. I don’t care how street you think you look when you log off the computer, you’re not going to fuck bad bitches with that shit on.

    sorry to break this to the masses, but Kanye has not one song aside from his first single and maybe the joint wit da rag-doll thats even fit to ride around listenin to..

    he got one of those albums you play during sunday cleaning at the crib….and whoeva rides thru the streets wit da “Big Brother” track bumpin is most likely to approve of Wayne and Baby kissing.

    and i like Kanye’s album to an extent of the fact he’s grown as a producer, his rhymes are nothing new, and he talks about ho’s, money, materialism, and such just like anyone else, actually thats all he does talk about….. i neva saw this “conscious” side from him, that alot of people write about….did i miss the bus? or is lack of violent lyrics the new conscious? i compare that term wit the likes of PE and Dead Prez, The Coupe, Early Cube, and as wild as Pac was, he even displayed more “conscious” based rhymes than the Graduate and probably 95% of the rappers we label “conscious” today……are we serious here or being blindfolded again. and last i checked as an MC, if your lyrics are subpar the word “classic” should never be attached to a “tolerable” album….

    fall head-first off a project roof-top and commit dat!!!!

  • Redd

    these are 2 diffrent types of artist though, so i never understood what the big deal was? to me kanye is a common, kweli or nas type rapper. they are more on the conscious side. there are sub categories for hip hop now:

    *These categories are not based on lyrical ability. Accept for the snap hip hop category, which sucks.

    Conscious hip hop (kweli,common,kanye,etc)

    Snap/Club hip hop (hurricane chris, soulja boy lil jon)

    Skateboard hip hop (lupe, pharell)

    Trap Hip Hop (Jeezy, T.I,Rick Ross)

    Original Hip Hop (Jay-Z, Nas,Most of their east coast conterparts)

    Street Hip Hop: (D-Block, Fabolous, Clipse,etc)

    *Rockstar hip hop (Lil wayne and friends)

    Pop Hop (most of the artists who we know fall under this category are artists like MiMMs, Young Berg, shit that you generally wouldnt like if it came on the radio)

    since 50 doesnt fit in any of the above categories, well make him his own:

    Throw away hip hop: (for lack of better term fuck it its 5:30am) this is called throw away hip hop because he really is just using it as his hustle, i.e to make money. Moreover, he can deciede to not make his own music anymore because he has all this money so he can just go focus on his ventures.he is able to “use” hip hop for financial gain, which doesnt neccassarilt make his music bad, but it eventually will start to suffer (now) cuz instead of focusing on spectacular lyrics he puts out bullshit and focuses on his marketing plan. but that was his perogative from the very start. he has every reason to put the mic down, it no longer serves him his purpose now that he is out of his impoverish state. alot of people might say well he abuses hip hop just to make money with no respect for the art form, but if you had a way out the hood, wouldnt you take it, or would you say “no, becasue ill just be abusing hip hop” gtfoh. i still think 50 will outsell kanye, but he wont be reaching GRODT or even the massacre sales.

    im not hating on kanye or 50 or the “souf” or anyone but if we are going to keep comparing these artists the way that we do, then atleast let it be fair. 2 artists from diffrent categories are good/bad within their respective category. for example, can you compare Jay-z or Nas with soulja boy or Hurrican Chris. Hell Naw!

  • Redd

    * I called it rockstar hip hop cuz of the drugs that they do and the clothes that they wear. weezys lyrics be aigght sometimes, calm down

    “and whoeva rides thru the streets wit da “Big Brother” track bumpin is most likely to approve of Wayne and Baby kissing”

    So a track where the man is clearly paying homage and being brutally honest about his relationship w/Jay-Z should raise questions about his sexuality?

    W/all these homophobic undertones in these posts, I’m starting to think that alot of you are over-obsessed w/the concept of homosexuality. You may be teh ghey.

Kenny Chesney got them white girls creamin’ like a muh fugga. He is an owner of more platinum plaques than 50 and Kanye.

  • these posts are racist

    While I think Kanye will sell plenty of records when his album drops, I think he will lose a lot of what made him, him.

    Kanye seems to let his Ego, (which is OK to have, to an extent) get the best of him. His new album is simply his ego rapping about how wealthy and great he is. Its hard for a cat from the streets, like myself, to dream of success with his songs, the way his first album made me. The vibe on this album is different, in a bad way.

    50 on the other hand, sells…not because of his music but because of his image…Americans love that shit; aggressive hardcore sex having, gun toating black man…its fucked up.

    Half A Dollar is a joke. His career is built on lies and imagery. Has nothing to do with racism, cause I’m white, it has to do with being true to urself and where you came from. Dude built his whole career on crushing Ja Rule, then bit dude’s whole style and ran with it. His latest hit sounds like that Jim Jones joint off that last Lil’ Flip album entitled, (ironically enough), “I Get Money.” That 50 joint is hot, no dick ride, but dude ain’t no lyricist, he’s said time and time again he’s in the business of selling records and making “hooks.” Dude’s not hip-hop, he’s just a rap pop artist from Queens with THREE bullet wounds. That’s not real to me. Motherfuckers in hip-hop today are always concerned with who’s more gangsta and who has more hood credibility. Well, Curtis Jackson has NONE. Oh yeah, LOL, White Rappers sweetheart ;). Holla Mr. Sunday
