50 Cent Says He’s The Next To Sell A Million First Week And More In “The Roundup”

50 Cent was confused by Lil Wayne’s big first week sales. But the G-Unit CEO said he has no doubt he’s gonna push a million copies the first week of his next album. “Fourth quarter,” Fif told Mixtape Monday about his next release, Before I Self-Destruct. “I want to focus on the positive, and I feel I’m one of the more vocal people in hip-hop,” he continued. “Even when it’s not about the music, people pay attention to me, because I have something to offer. I’ll continue to create quality music at a pace they never seen.” [MTV News]

While the rap dudes are aiming for one mil status, Will Smith just cracked the 100 million mark with his latest movie, “Hancock.” The Philly rapper-turned-actor’s latest raked in $107.3 million over the Fourth of July holiday weekend. The flick opened Tuesday night, but just over the weekend, the superhero tale took in $66 million alone. Disney/Pixar’s “Wall-E” was second at the box office over the weekend with a $33 million haul.

Kanye West finally debuted his much-discussed fashion line over the weekend. The Chicago star was in France for Paris’ Fashion Week and made his way to plenty of shows. While in attendance at other designers’ shows, he made sure to rock his own duds, premiering his collection Pastelle. The most talked about item was a faux shark fin adorned hoodie ‘Ye took a pic in. A few years ago, West was snapped in the LRG skeleton hoodie and the item quickly caught on and sold out everywhere. [LA Times]

A man seeking more than $25, 000 in damages, filed a lawsuit against Eminem stemming from an alleged incident that occurred two years ago in the bathroom of a Detroit strip club. Miad Jarbou claims Em punched him. No charges were filed at the time. [E!]

    feel me like Braile:..:.:

    • iLL G

      and you thought we swould care because…..

  • Vicious Seiger

    50 sell a mil in his first week? Not Likely. T.O.S. was garbage, Curtis was alright and Wayne had a colossal street buzz fueling the sale of Tha Carter III [Which was also garbage so don't feel too bad Fif.]. If he wants to sell a mil he is going to either have to start a street buzz for Before I Self Destruct [Not Likely], start a beef with someone [Most Likely], or the least likely scenario – MAKE SOME REAL RAP MUSIC WORTH PLAYING PAST THE FIRST MONTH OF IT’S RELEASE [And not generate another Amusement Park/Candy Shop first single but generate something fresh. Fabolous did it with "Breathe"]. 50 gonna sell but he’s going down the route of his old rival Ja Rule – people are getting tired of seeing him and his shenanigans, if he wants to beat the inevitable backlash – take some time off and he should comeback with a fresh take on his music and one more thing he could do before I forget – Shut the F’ Up for awhile.

    • iLL G

      i agree. shut up for a while..take care of your custody shit…wait about a year or two then come back wit some fresh new ish that actually has sum substance. cus right now the “gangsta gimmick” is gettin real old. its funny cus rappers wit substance like lupe, little brother, murs, immortal tech, termonalogy…them niggas cant get no air play…but these wack ass commercial rappers can…fuckin joke

  • Macdatruest

    Damn, he already planning to release another album? Whats the point of having a roster if you’re not gonna let anybody else have careers? I know the label probably pulled T.O.S.(take off shelf) off the shelf already. Now he say he’s gonna focus on the positive-how come everything dude do seem so mechanical? Just make music from ya soul and quit being a sales puppet for interscope dude, you soundin’ weak now. Especially since you went from ten million to T.O.S. and now you trying to break a mill again. Co-sign: Fiddy, hit the showers you’re out the game

  • Flow

    i don’t give a damn about how much fiddy sells. i just wanna listen to good music, thats it

  • $tuckfresh

    Thats Faggot Cents problem he runs his trap 2 much!!! 250,000 frist week max!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 11500

    Laughing at the nigga above me that’s talking about he got shot.Ay dude…That don’t make you hard that makes you a bitch ass nigga.Keep ya fuckin eyes open and yah head up hoe ass!!!
    As for 50…if he sells a million records it’ll be because he bought most of the albums himself and if he don’t sell a million he will make up some excuse as to why he didn’t to salvage his ego.The crazy thing is…I’m out almost all day and I never hear anybody playing his shit.maybe its because I’m from the west coast.dude is definitly starting to self distruct…embarrasing

  • deonwill

    You see how all you haters commented about 50!!!
    Other people were mentioned in this, but yall had to hate on 50! He must be doing something right, damn!

  • chad bro chill

    hoipefully after 50 sells way less then a milli he’ll kill himself and we can all go back to our normal lives

  • westcoast mexican

    50 cracks me up, A Mil in his first week, he must be on crack, i be surprised if he even goes gold & he needs to realize that his glory days r over, retire, u had a classic album be happy.

    p.s. if he does sell a milli in a week, i’ll buy the fuckin album myself

  • Penelope Rodriguez

    Eminem needs to come out with that KING MATHERS!

    I totally forgot about that fight in the bathroom

  • 239allday

    But the thing about it is, Fif is right because that nigga prolly has 1 million cock sucking fans left(including the xxl staff)who think he is Hip Hop.

    And I’m going to laugh at the man/fag that wears the clothes Kanye sellin. No type of nut room.

  • http://www.xxlmag.com Benicio Del Thoro

    I love it when people from the west coast, get on here and hate on Fif, sayin that they don’t play his shit over there, and they automatically say its wack…Just a reminder, I’m from michigan, and we don’t play game on this side anyway. Fif makes music better than anyone on the west so far. TOS is not garbage, u need to listen instead of skim through it

  • Jason Murk

    TOS is not garbage… It’s more like recycled material.

    Most of the production is good, and I can honestly say that I’m feeling 3 beats off the album. But the song concepts are weak as hell. Everything on this album has been said and done a thousand times. No creativity whatsoever. Lyrically, they’re decent. But when it comes to subject matter, they can do better.

    50 will not move a million units in the first week. His fan base erodes every year, and that’s because the G in G unit now stands for “Generic.”

  • giantstepp

    Co-sign with Jason Murk!

    It’s been a steady decline the longer time rolls on. He may as well focus on other things (movies etc.) because if the way things have been going musically for 50, it’s just about a wrap. Dont know how true it is, but the internets are buzzing and saying 100,000 units 1st week for T.O.S. which proves my point. G-Uint, RIP!

  • A

    50′s gonna do what Weezy did and buy a mill worth of his own cd’s. What’s a mill for some credibility? It’s nothing to them. Because aint nobody paying this fool no mind. And I don’t know one person who has a Carter 3 album but then again aint nobody up north feelin Weezy anyway.

  • http://xxl dan

    t.o.s is decent..i lyk it..lloyd banks kills it…50 is stuk up doe..e dnt realise alot of ppl dnt lyk his music anymre lol..hes ite doe..ill buy his album…ya boy da best rapper rite bout now…

  • KANI

    Beat-wise, T.O.S is ok but lyrically is GARBAGE. G-Unit is officially. Oh, the only way 50 cent is gonna sell 1 Mil the 1st week is if he buys 1 million copies himself. By the way, who gave him the idea for his next album’s title? Because dude’s doing just that SELF-DESTRUCT…

  • Mitch

    Before I Self-Destruct won’t sell a million copies in its first week just because Fiddy claimed it would.

  • west coast

    T.O.S. was straight trash. except lloyd banks hes not too bad…

    50… what are you thinkin with that statement.. nobody listens to you anymore you faggot. the only people that like 50 are youngins who dont realize what real music is all about. you gotta be brainless to dig his shit. YA DIG

  • Queens Boy

    ha hah ha ha ha ha ha Fifty sellin a mil in bis first week with his next album? i know a way that can happen; start a beef with someone again
    i.e. lil wayne or the flavor of the month lol tos was garbage just like the first g unit album and self destruct will be wack like curtis was

  • SOLO

    chill out 50…… u might not sell a milla in a yr…. i aint hating but dude is irrelavant now. too much beef aint good for you.

  • HipHopFive15

    what the fuck. 50. You aint that good. Im sorry. Your just not. This muthafucka is too cocky. He smokes to much crack for his own good. Ha I know I aint about to buy his new shit

  • mizeryluvkompany

    if 50 is lookn 4 beef, i HOPE he trys 2 ge at tech n9ne 4 being independent and out sellin his trash…..no doubt tech wood kill him easy!!…if u aint got tech n9ne’s new shit yet, KILLER…go cop, 32 tracks promise its the dopest shit u heard n awhile!!!…..50 used 2 b hott, we all agree on that, hes jus pushed it 2 much!!…..aint no other, 2pac, aint no other biggie, well probly never see the likes of those 2 again!!……tech n9nes all i really got left, im not feeln this new wave at all!….

  • Macdatruest

    XXL is gonna fall off right along with Fiddy.

    Fiddy is supposed to be a vegetarian, but he had too much Beef lol I bet the non-stop party at Fiddy’s old Mke Tyson Mansion is getting smaller and smaller. I bet it’s getting harder for the dick riders he surrounded himself with to smile and agree with whatever he sayin’. I heard Llloyd Banks got put on punishment because Fiddy caught him listening to The Carter 3 in his and Yayo’s room. Him and Yayo share bunk beds, but Tony Yayo gota sleep on the bottom because he’s almost Fifty for real and he wets on himself. I can only imagine what it feels like to be on G-Unit right now. I bet it’s like being a circus clown with jewelry on

  • REAL TALK 08

    G-Unot bout to T.O.S!..dat album bout to bpmb!..Fiddy will be really upset that it wont even outsell Plies!..

  • Big Willie

    50…gotta respect he makin some nice business moves…people still wanna see what he about..but these niggas might need to discuss a Hiatus…Lay low and come up again..on the music end… these beefs are clown shit…let a nigga cry on tape and then bend him over…I thought 50 had more goin then to do dude like that..Ya Already Know..Detroit Playas Allday

  • Maddolies

    Lol 50 Is Living in a fantasy world. He Doesnt get it dat he isnt relevant in hip hop anymore.

  • mike

    Curtis is not interesting, and he has nothing to offer us lyrically. He is a supreme dickhead, and his shit won’t sell like the way Lil Wayne’s shit sold. He will probably buy at least 250,000 copies of his own bullshit album… Bum ass niggah.

  • Afi K. James

    Face it 5-0, your time is up, the streets are defintely not interested in you just like you enemies, I Never like this clown from the beginning, so who the fuck cares.

    and his crew is crap too.

    This is the worst decade of music so far.

  • Trickdd

    Fifty need to get back down to the bottom so he can rise back up I dont wanna hear no candy shop shit are girly shit and the only reason why his second cd sold so much cause his first was the shit and it was antisipated See I aint a hater though so I like to see what Fiftys gunna do (Im I a hater if I hate Haters) yea I like fiftys first CD that shit got me pumped I use to work out to that shit every other day I hope he makes some series shit and I would like to see Lil Wayne and fifty and Eminem on a track can you say Milli hahaha Peace everybody have fun live you life you never know when its gunna be your time 239 4 Life Cape Coral Fort Myers Thats my hood

  • capitalpro

    This line goes out to curtis jackson and the jackson 2..you couldn’t sell 2 copies/if you pressed a double album..eminem rap olympics

  • BOLD

    ONLY IF YOU ARE FROM THE LOST RURAL AREAS OF CANADA YOU SHOULD PURCHASE THAT ARSONIST CD.

    50 IS A CON AND A FRAUD. NO, HE IS NOT GANGSTA. HE IS GAY.

    NOW HE IS GOING TO GO AFTER ANOTHER ARTIST ON TOP OF HIS GAME SO HE CAN GET ATTENTION.

    HE WILL COME UP WITH SOME DAMN MARKET TACTIC TO SUCKER YOU DICK LICKERS INTO BUYING HIS SHIT.

    ATTENTION YOU DUMB FUCK WHO ARE TRYING TO ADOPT THE HIP HOP CULTURE:
    .50 IS NOT REAL. HE IS A GREAT MARKETER. HE BEEF TO BUMP UP SALES.
    HE USED A WHITE DUDE FOR A TICKET TO YOUR AREA. FEEL ME?

    DAMN THINK. IF YOU WANT REAL HIP HOP, CHECK OUT TUPAC, BIGGIE, KRS1, CHUCK D, AND OF COURSE THE KING, N A S AKA NASIR JONES.

    YOU DUMB FUCKS DONT KNOW HIP HOP. YOU ONLY KNOW HIP POP. GULLIBLE MUTHA FUCKAZ
