50 Cent’s Before I Self Destruct Projected to Sell 150-160K in First Week

The one day sales number are in and it’s not looking good for rap superstar 50 Cent.

According to trusted industry insider hitsdailydouble.com, Fif’s long delayed fourth solo album, Before I Self Destruct, is projected to sell 150,00 to 160,000 in its first week on the shelves.

If the estimations are correct, this will be the lowest debut week for the G-Unit general. 50 sold 872,000 copies of Get Rich or Die Tryin’ in 2002. In 2004, his sophomore album, The Massacre, rang up over 1.15 million discs and his latest LP Curtis moved close to 695,000 units.

Originally scheduled to drop on November 23 BISD was pushed up to a November 16 date after the album leaked online nearly a month ago.

The album has been available on iTunes since November 9, but, according to Billboard, because of the unique situation Nielsen SoundScan will be including those digital sales as a part of his first week tally. —Max G

    If he sells lower than Jay, he’s done!

    • what?

      If…???? HE WILL SALE LOWER THAN JAY!!!! 50 Cent is a CLOWN!!!

      • angee

        50 is still the boss, he will sall more than you can imagine, the boss like 50 can’t found in us man.

      • mr. whyte

        F******* y’all haters on fifty cos he is the biggest boss and the king of hip hop. How can Jay outsell fif? Curtis has ben and will still one of the very few biggest sellin hip hop artist. But for the online leakage, like fif will blow up the industry again like he did with “Get Rich or Die Tryin”. GGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!! UNIT!!!!

    • Enlightened

      Lower than Jay?? Shit. You mean if he sells lower than Ross?

      If those projections are true, he ain’t about to sell TOTAL what Jay-Z sold in his first week.

      • Black

        Lol, yeah man I can accept him losing to Jay but not to Ross.

    • hot sauce bitch

      fuck ya’ll bitchs 50 is da greatest

  • sway-z

    Fuck it, thats what happens when you base your whole shit around sales instead of skills. 50 brought that shit into the game, he was poking fun at niggas, now it’s time to get off your own boat son, it’s sinking, and fans is fickle as shit.

    It’s fucked up too, cuz the album is actually decent, the 1st 9 joints is dope. In reality, if this album was Curtis, he’d still be on niggas radars, but after awhile, especially when you doing too much WWE shit, niggas start separating you from your music, and you become a character

    • 2 Saint

      Punk they only tabulating his numbers based on first day sales, when the official numbers come out next week and the nigga sells like 800,000 don’t be asking how pussy, they was predicting these simillar bullshit numbers for curtis after one days sales, remember that pussy

    50 and mayweather bout to go cop 50,000 copies each.

    go check my comment on Combat Jack’s latest. I said it first, 50 bout to do rick ross, jada numbers.

      Truth…that is what you call getting back what you dish out. Fake a** beefs. talking reckless about others and being the hip hop bully! He is the new Vanilla Ice of hip hop!! This negro is so cooked…and he ETHERED his damn self…how IRONIC!!!!

  • macdatruest

    Aaaaahaaaaa they gotta cheat to boost his bitch ass sales. God forbid they add the real first week sales without tallying three weeks of difital sales into it. I think they should do real first week numbers and the favortism numbers seperately. So you can laugh, or laugh hard as hell. I hope he sees that just because you find ways to stay in the spotlight, that doesnt make you a star or likable, or talented.

    go fiddy!!!!!

  • carolina’s finest

    If 50 only sells 160 k his first week he’s gonna feel real stupid don’t get me wrong he’s a hustler but this is the perfect reason why Jay-Z isn’t trippin off that nigga. He’s not relevant anymore. all that bullshit beefin and baitin niggas is old we all know u 50. I still fuck with the nigga but this is a lesson learn. LAW 47 DONT GO PAST THE MARK YOU AIMED FOR; IN VICTORY LEARN WHEN TO STOP

    • HIPHOP

      LMFAO….classic how that rule applies. Lets see next week what happens, but it’s a fail, he already copped a plea in tha Jenny Boom Boom interview.

      The album bumps tho, no bullshit.

  • HU

    Talent lasts, hype doesn’t. He’s had a good run and did what rappers are supposed to do: scare white people, promote stupidity and thuggishness to blacks and keep the coon image alive. Also, smoke weed, wear white-t’s and chains, fuck bitches, get money, say nigga in each sentence, carry a gun, be angry, get tatted, don’t “snitch”, etc…… You will see examples of this in the posts below me. There are a million “Honeycutts” ready to take his place.

  • Enlightened

    Damn Fif. Work on those acting chops. That looks brighter for you right now.

    Beanie Sigel – RUUUUUNNNNN!!!! Get the fuck away from their homie while you still can!

  • nic

    That is what happens when you continue to rap about the same thing over and over again. He contradicts everything he says, he is just like ja rule, he sings on the hooks as well.. In NYC, some stores were selling his cd for $5.50 and it still made no difference…..

  • megagavelli

    wtf u mean flop?!?

    50 went and put out a full blown street record with no regard for sales–so how is that a flop?!
    he knew that harcore shit wouldn’t sell and obviously didnt give a fuk..who else would do that?

    i applaud 50 for doing what NO OTHER BIG ARTIST WILL EVER DO–put out an actual hip hop record (not hip Pop–HIP HOP) even mr billionaire jayz is still (for some reason) putting out pop records even though he doesn’t have to-don’t front jayz fans u know u wish hed put another actual hip hop record out ( i know i do– but hes too far gone for that shit)

    how many other hardcore street hip hop records have ever done 160 or better thier first week? not many–and one of them is grdt

    i appreciate 50 having the balls to do this, and i appreciate him bringing me back to the 90′s with the hardcore shit… i really like the record,and i think he should be commended for putting it out with no regard for political connects or anything else…

    50 and snoop are the 2 people i respect most in this hip hop business shit… why?? cause snoop is ALWAYS snoop.. and 50 is ALWAYS 50 at the end of the day… you guys can applaud jay all u want for the money hes made– but if u from nyc and u look at who jay has become in order to make money… and u look at who 50 still is and the way hes made his money, and you’ve got to respect 50 for being a man about his shit-period.

    • wow

      Don’t be mad because 50 Cent FLOPPED!!!!

    • terrence

      so, megawill, how long you been a fan of 50′s nutsack? quite a while I see….

    • latino heat

      @ Megag

      if 50 truly didn’t care about sales as you say, he wouldn’t have made that shitty single with Ne-Yo. that shit is horrible. you can’t front on that.

      and as far as Jay-Z not making street albums anymore didn’t he drop American Gangster, two years ago? a album with ZERO pop songs or attempted crossover songs. and still sold better than this 50 album.

    • yoprince

      whatever dude.

      the nigga got a lead single with ne-yo.

      and he was just on the fuckin tonight show with conan o’brien.

      let’s not pretend like he became an underground artist overnight.

    • nic

      So when u state HIP HOP album it has to be about guns, getting at your enemies, etc. The same thing we heard from him when he first came out which was fine because you was still on the come up but when do you switch it up and talk about something else. Can 50 grow? or does he have to stick to his usual formula to be loved. When an artist goes outside of there pattern it shows that they are versitile and can survive. Switch up the subject matter…you have money now…

      • Dan

        this is exactly what I would post…well said. well said..

    • RDS

      @megagavelli,

      50 seriously appreciates your blowjobs, sir.

      ^
      Dude are you stupid “Baby By Me” was as commercial “hip-pop” as it gets not to even mention that song with Ne-Yo. Those song were specifically made to play on pop stations. 50 claims to be on some “aggressive content” shit but the truth is he just as pop as any other main stream artist.

      • lucifa

        u must not have hurd the album the whole fuking album is straight gangsta music 50 has done the same shit everytime always have a song that can play on the radio to get some sales and then the rest of the album he gonna do him for a straight gangsta azz album 150,000 first week is gd now a days cause now all this bitch azz niggas wanna hear is lollipop and other gay azz songs 150,000 for 50 is kinda of a flop i can say that but at least i aint hating on the nigga when i say it

        • sideshowRaheem

          You’re missing the point you can’t claim 50 made a straight street album when he clearly put poppy song on BISD to get radio play…oh and 150,000 is not good by todays standards for an artist of 50′s caliber. How can any 50 fan claim this as any kind of a victory when Rick Ross sold 158,000 in his first week and some of you were laughing at those numbers.All the other artists at 50′s level(Kanye, Jay-Z, Lil Wanye, Eminem) are moving from 500,000 to 900,000) in there first weeks 50 if sells 150,000 its a failure regardless of any “aggressive content” that’s on the album.

        • Knuckz

          50 himself has said that 150k is a failure for an artist of his stature

    • http://xxlmag jb

      I’m from ny. Born and raised. What has Jay become to make money? U mean matured? Stopped wearing his pants sagging off his ass? Stopped talking about street shit every second? U gotta grow if u wanna last and 50′s been on the same shit since GRODT. I saw this flop coming when none of the songs I heard from it was hot.

      • megagavelli

        damn niggas got homotional over the shit– yeah baby by me suked ass.. didnt expect much but the album to me is bangin..

        –lyrics: well,hip hop is like movies, we need some scarface shit and some enlighening shit–this is like scarface shit…

        production wise the shit is raw to the point that most people would have to been scared to put the shit on thier album these days (minus like 2 or 3 joints)

        dont go according to the bullshit single (the only fukin song like that on the album)download the album and check it out–

        its been awhile since someone came that hard on a mainstream release–and me having grown up with the public enemy,nwa,ice cube black moon,early mobb deep shit– i appreciated him takin it there

        and jay has done a whole lot more than pull his paints up homie– he dickrides everything that the gay kids in union square and astor place do-from the fukin urke glasses to the al black shit, to the scarves to every fuckin thing he wears thats not a suit-if them niggas start rocking baggy jeans again then so will he—its fukin ridiculous

        yall niggas take this shit way too personal–damn

        • http://xxlmag jb

          Personal? Please. I just call it how I see it. And personally I dont wanna hear someone getting killed every five seconds anymore. Especially since fif is almost 35. Its not realistic to me. I dont mind some tough talk here and there but damn. Can u honestly say that 50 has grown? Dats a big part of being a artist to me. To me if u wanna be hard on your first couple of albums cool. But after that u done seen the world so you shouldnt be trying to make the same shit. and u shouldnt be all tight jus cuz sumone disagrees wit u. people got different opinions. 50 is done for tho. Washed up. sorry.

      • Enlightened

        @jb

        Nah, actually, Jay-Z do still be saggin his pants. I be looking at that nigga like why the fuck is this rich, 40 year old nigga still saggin?

        He even walked in the middle of Madison Square Garden court after the Knicks/Cavs game to holla at Lebron with his shit saggin.

        I just had to laugh.

        • http://xxlmag jb

          Yea maybe. Hell I dont watch tv too much so I wouldnt know. The times I have seen him its been cool. Hell I kno I dont sag my pants and I’m 26. baggy but still respectible. ;-)

        • that nigga

          @ JB and Enlightened, isnt that nigga a hypocrite? First its lose the Jerseys and saggin’ and put on a button up and pull ya pants up? Now he back to saggin? What a message he’s sendin, confusin’ the blind motherfuckers that believe everything this nigga or any other rapper scribbles on a napkin. Oh, my bad Jays’ excluded, he dont write rhymes??

          This nigga, I swear.

    • http://www.twitter//yaboitone yaboitone

      PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE stop saying “hiphop” and “hardcore rap” like they are the same thing?? BISD is the EXACT OPPOSITE of hiphop and i cant believe how many people arent acknowledging that? hiphop is HONEST and its full of ARTISTIC INTEGRITY. BISD definately possesses neither of these qualities. OH, and there is alot more to what fits the “hiphop” criteria, but JUST THOSE TWO characteristics are giving me WAY TOO MUCH to write about as far as BISD goes so i apologize for the length. I condensed the bullshit 50 does by several pages. lol.

      BISD IS DISHONEST.
      50 is not a “gangsta” anymore (assuming he ever REALLY was). hes not out shootin niggaz, robbin people, smashin a buncha chicks (to his own admission), selling drugs, or any of that coonery. he is selling vitamin water, cologne, clothes, appearing on Conan Obrien and Dateline, surrounding himself with “one time,” and hanging with Bett fuckin Midler!?!?!Look that last one up if u don’t believe me. Anyway, he raps about the same bullshit becuz he wants to continue to portray that facade in his music EVEN THOUGH EVERYTHING ABOUT HIS MUSIC CONTRADICTS THE WAY HE LIVES OR WHAT HE NOW KNOWS. his music doesn’t evolve or grow as he does and that is the fakest most fraudulent bullshit ever. hes AFRAID to alienate the fans he got with that gangsta bullshit (which is all of them), so he FRONTS and puts out fake music to appease them, and THEN he criticizes people like Jay who are HONEST and rap about HOW THEY REALLY LIVE, so that people don’t realize how FAKE HE is.
      u know what. i already wrote waaaay too much. lemme try to sum it up.

      He didnt have the balls to do SHIT! YOU ARE FUCKING CRAZY AND YOU DON’T REALLY KNOW 50 IF YOU THINK FOR ONE SECOND HE “KNEW” HE WOULDN’T SELL AND HE WAS PREPARED TO LET THAT HAPPEN??!!?!? LMFAO. THAT WOULD MAKE U OBLIVIOUS! 50 IS A COMPETITOR AND HE WOULD NEVER INTENTIONALLY PUT HIMSELF IN A POSITION TO DO LOW NUMBERS! he CAN’T make a REAL and HONEST album because he has spent his ENTIRE CAREER putting down REAL MUSIC in order to make the played out fake gangsta shit he does seem more relevant. HE WON’T SELL because people are wising up and not buying that fake shit anymore. PLUS hes not really talented on a mic anyway. lol. God bless his hustle and business savvy. He’s brilliant as far as that goes though. much respect.

    slight correction, GRODT dropped in 2003 not 2002. Massacre dropped in 2005 not 2004.

    he still has how many days to rake in the numbers ? fucking people don’t even read

    • General

      I think your the one that might want to learn to read. After his first day sales, and actually since it came out Monday, he had 2 days of sales, he is projected to do 160K for the entire week, which means he probably sold about 20-40k so far in 2 days.

INSTEAD OF TRYING TO DISS JAY HE’D BETTER BE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO STAY RELEVANT.

    • Hanch

      I agree with what the dude above said. The shit only dropped Yesterday, So they can tell what an artist is going to sell after 1 day on the Shelves, Seriously yall are going to buy that? Or maybe they just put that out to get hits on the site….hmmmm Personally I like the album now do I know what it going to sell, No! So what is everybody on here going to say if a Post on Friday comes out and says that he is predicted to sell 300,000 now. Will yall still call it a Flop? Or will yall not even comment like some Bitchs? I personally think its going to do well especially since they are putting this out after only 1 day of the damn Cd being on Shelves! So now later in the week they (the site for you ignit mofo’s) will release another article to get ppl to check it out and generate Hits!!

      • General

        They always put out the projections after the first day, and like I said above 50′s actually had 2 days for them to look at for trends and see what it is going to sell, and yes they are usually pretty damn close with their projections…

        • macdatruest

          Yall must not have read closely….

          it’s been available on iTunes since November 9th,

          so actually they had his one week numbers on the 16th. They are just trying to show him some favortism because of the epic proportions of flop. They tallied his digital sales into the predictions and still predict his first week album sales (really week 2) would only be 150,000.

          But it cannot be based on a day if the album has been out since the 9th and their tallying that into his sales predictions!!!! His real first week sales from the 9th to the 16th of November had to be less than 150,000.

          So if we are going of his real first week sales Ro$$ did 325,000. Fiddy couldnt have did over 75,000 in the real first week if they predict 150,000 for the decoy 1st week (again, really week 2)

  • http://www.resurrectedmuzik.com LUBY562

    Let’s add up the facts! 50 is Rich so I don’t think this really is going to change anything with him. Also, although Lil Wayne broke the ceiling of record sells during this economic downturn as did EM. But, EM sells more than EM normally. Not dis to 50 because he will tell you the same thing. I read the MM album sold 23 million records worldwide. So if Em is only 1 going towards 2x plat what the fucc you think 50 is going to sell.
    160K shit! that is good numbers in these time.
    Plus he sold the most on itunes last week with is not even included in the sound scan numbers..

    50 is sitting good. That is a good first week numbers for him now.
    How many albums Triple C sold? 28k or something.

    Ross and his homies are not complaining…. Why should 50?

      It seem like Fiddy dick riders always have trouble with the facts if they don’t support Fiddy. This is an example of the typical Fiddy fan. Nigga will tell you the exact opposite of what you just read. Take that G-Unit dildo out your ass and face facts buddy

  • Viski

    Damn, I rock with 50 and I dig almost everything is he puts out (baby by me was the worst Idea of a single though) but damn…if this shit is true he flopped. DONT EVEN BRING THAT BULLSHIT OF RECORD SALES DONT MEAN SHIT! I personally dont think they do, but damn 50 is the one always pointing it out with other artists so this is what he gets. Unfortunatly he flopped bc the album is actually pretty dope, dont be a fan or a hater take it for what it is…but damn fif how are you going to do less than RICKY?

  • ….

    This nigga has created a new lane for selling albums. Everything is going to start going digital first. There gonna laugh now, but call him a genuis later…

  • jeremy

    yeah i dont know what hes doing with this album and where is the 2 songs go that came out before the cd was pushed back,hell they were decent songs i only liked 4 songs of bisd and im a huge 50 cent fan i think eminem coming back kinda hurt this cd cuz thats why it got delyed the first time there wasnt even a first single except for the ones that came out months ago bbm is gay it was bad promotional deal

  • $ykotic/Don McCaine

    Like I dropped on the sales thread, that man is more concerned with the movie stuff than the album. Dude is prepping the transition to Hollywood.

    I honestly project 180K. That man will never go diamond again. I only bought the album for the DVDs anyway, and the BISD soundtrack is fire.

    So in other words, we have no idea what he’s expected to sell. Hits has him at 150-160 without the digital sales. So since we don’t know what the digital sales are, we don’t know what 50′s expected to sale.

  • who cares!

    ok. i bought the cd yesterday. I love it. I have been a fifty fan since i first heard wanksta on the radio. that being said i liked, not loved, liked the massacre a lot. GRODT was a classic, and that album will NEVER be repeated in my opinion. By him, and possibly by anybody else. the buzz he created with that was nuts. everybody on here cannot say that if they came into all that fame and money as fast as he did. and he is still very famous and rish regardless of sales. u cant say it wouldnt change u. I absolutley hated CURTIS. there were a few songs i like but for the most part it was garbage. everyone sells less than they did 5 years ago bc of bootleg and bc of the recession. but the biggest reason he aint gona sell for shit is bc of CURTIS. think about it it still went platinum and sold almost 700,000 in its first week. so that is a lotta people, fans, that heard that garbage. so he loses fans. each album has in all reality progressively gotten worse. until this one. i dont care for baby by me, and never liked a lot of his commercial stuff beside in da club, that i dont care who you are that song comes on and ur still going nuts. but this album got better. i do feel he made this album without much regard for sales. made it for his fans. he has to put shit like baby by me on there bc of his label. they have to have a single so it sells something u dumbasses. but he went hard, and went back to where he began on this one for the most part. i love his mixtapes still. i love the war angel ep. but hey i just like that kinda music. besides 50 doesnt need to sell records anymore he makes way more money of other shit, and thats why he doesnt need to make an album full of commercial shit that helps sales like he tried doing on CURTIS. reply to this shit. let me know what everyone else thinks. of course its funny SSK anly does 150k in his first week, i am a fan and i think its funny. but who cares. at the end of the day i dont care who is beefig with who and for what reason, i dont care who sells the most. if i like the damn music, then i like the damn music. Besides lil wayne sold the shit outta carter III and i hated that album. and i like some of his shit too, but not that.

  • obanik

    I AM A 50 CENT FAN,AND ALL I SEE ON THIS SITE IS HATERS, WHY HATE, ARE YOU GUYS GETTING PAID FOR THIS SHIT, 50 CENT IS ALREADY RICH, JAY-Z IS ALREADY RICH, MATTER A FACT RICK ROSS IS RICHER THEN MOST OF YOU HATERS ON HERE, WHY NOT USE YOUR MINDS AND THOUGHTS TO BE THE NEXT MILLIONAIRE, THATS WHAT I AM DOING…TIME ARE HARD, THINK ABOUT YOUR FUTURE, CAUSE ALL THESE RAPPER HAVE IT GOOD ALREADY, LIKE JAY-Z SAYS, HES ALREADY HOME.

  • Dollar-Bill-Board

    WOW THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GO AGAINST JAY,FIRST CAM,THEN JONES,GAME WILL DO 80,000 HIS FIRST WEEK,SOME HOW IM CONFUSED IS THIS A VICTORY FOR ROSS OR DOES THIS MAKE HIM FEEL LIKE ALL OF KIMBO SLICES OPPONENTS THAT LOST TO HIM PRIOR TO THAT “LOSS”,AND WHO EVER THOUGH SPIDER LOC BE THE BIGGEST ARTIST ON GUNIT WOW

  • http://www.sundayhhtimes.blogspot.com The Editor

    To actual believe that 50 will let this go down without a fight is stupid, first, he has way more fans than that, and the world number will be crazy, if em did 1.5 and 23 around the world, with a 600k opening, 50 opening will beat John Mayer, he is in overdrive and nobody does overdrive better, I bet you see him in Kentucky this week, Ohio, Chicago, LA, Seattle, he will hit every state and make sure he signs thousands of records himself, do a show where you have to bring the record this weekend, friday before a few football games and the arenas will be free sunday as well, 50 will not let this happen, I thin them numbers being leaked was the best thing that could happen, you thinking 150k he do 500k beat Mayer and everyone hops on his joint again

    Watch (but if it happens, he made it happen)

    • RWord

      it not about fans, it about music dumb dumb. People buy music, not picture of other people baby mama, son, or cartoon.

      that is why he is flopping. he is getting NO SPINS, no one is feeling his last album. it has NO hits. it garbage.

      50cent been over, it just you dick riders are in denail.

  • CLINK DA 6’9″

    Damn Homie, in ’02 you was the man Homie. What the fuck happened to you. Jay-Z is not Ja Rule or Officer Ricky, this nigga has a cult following. A lot of his fans would have probably bought BISD but not with you talking shit like that. Niggas need to learn what my Grandmother told me “you have to pick your battles”. This was not the right battle to pick. I thought Prodigy would have told you that. Ask him he don’t want it with Hov.

    50 cent HATERS ARE HAVING A FIELD DAY
    The stans are making excuses

    Man Curtis Jackson’s life is a F*ckin drama!

    Plain and simple:
    BISD IS A DOPE ALBUM!

    That’s all that matters in my book
    Remember Everyday ain’t Christmas
    His hype has diminished but what the hell the album was the one of the most hardcore hip hop lps of the year

    Pity
    Karma is a bitch on 50
    Rick Ross must be celebrating with a triple cheesburger!

  • Zood

    I’m a fan of 50, and i got this latest album, it’s quite good.
    But the fact he’s struggling to do Ross numbers, and the fact Ross went to number 1 and 50 most probably won’t, then this can only be regarded as a flop. Might be time to put out that greatest hits cd and call it a day. Once the relevance is gone it’s not coming back.

    John Mayer: Tweet all about it.

    Columbia’s singer/songwriter, full-time Tweeter and tabloid lothario will bow on top next week as his Battle Studies rustles up 275-300k in sales, almost twice as much as his nearest pursuer.

    MAYER MAJOR AS Q4 BATTLE BEGINS IN EARNEST
    Columbia Star in Lead with Norah, Casting Crowns, 50 Cent, Bocelli Up Next

    November 18, 2009

    Who says John Mayer can’t get stoned and have a #1 album on next Tuesday’s HITS Top 50 Album sales chart?

    Not us.

    The fourth quarter sprint to the end of the first decade of the 21st century (and what a decade it was) begins in earnest this week and, for battered music retailers, it couldn’t come a moment to soon.

    Columbia’s singer/songwriter, full-time Tweeter and tabloid lothario will bow on top next week as his Battle Studies rustles up 275-300k in sales, almost twice as much as his nearest pursuer, according to one-day reports from those hearty few still selling shiny, round discs in their stores instead of flat screen TVs.

    Blue Note chanteuse Norah Jones’ The Fall is the next-highest debut at 150-160k, putting her in a four-way logjam with Aftermath/Interscope rapper 50 Cent’s Before I Self-Destruct, also in its first week, Provident/Reunion Christian act Casting Crowns and Decca’s Andrea Bocelli, all in the 140-150k range.

    Island/IDJ teen phenom Justin Bieber appears to be poised to debut in the 110-120k neighborhood, a pleasant surprise which L.A. Reid and company have to be delighted with.

    19/Jive/JLG American Idol winner Kris Allen’s debut should be between 75-80k, which will make for an interesting comparison when runner-up Adam Lambert’s album drops on Nov. 23.

    DGC/Interscope rock gods Them Crooked Vultures, featuring Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme, Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl and Led Zep’s John Paul Jones, are on target for a total of 70-75k for their bracing, neo-psychedelic blooze-metal mash-up.

    J/RMG X Factor winner Leona Lewis’ sophomore album, Echo, should do between 60-65k.

    Paul McCartney’s Hear Music/Concord live DVD/CD, Good Evening New York City, is in the 50-55k area, while Interscope act OneRepublic’s Waking Up will arise with 40-45k and Janet Jackson’s A&M greatest hits album looks on track for 35-40k.

    sooo, if the same old bullshit music aint gonna cut it w/ these fans nowadays Jeezy probably will flop too?

    • yoprince

      nope.

      jeezy has progressed steadily in lyrical prowess and flow throughout his career.

      not to mention, jeezy just constructs better songs than 50 in general at this point in their careers.

      i tried listening to BISD and I got bored b4 i even got to the eminem joint. production bland. hooks meh. none of that doc dre perfectionism.

      also jeezy doesn’t suffer from overexposure. he’s not the annoying prick that 50 is.

      plus… he’s gonna have that jawn with rihanna in heavy rotation.. and the south still supports our artists. but you know that already.

  • bobs

    F L O P to the max.

    Even with 2 weeks of digital sales, it was only Itunes – and on Monday is plunged to #10. That effectively won’t help much. It’s possible HDD is counting Itunes sales from last week.

    Billboard is also reviewing this policy at the moment. Sorry but they are not responsible for piracy. I seriously don’t know how these albums are leaking so early. Are the record execs that dumb? EVERYTHING that goes out previous to a release should be heavily tagged.

    • lucifa

      what two weeks it came out last week on itunes and they projected the number off his first week sales not combined with his digital sales so on the billboards its gonna be different

    You live by the numbers you die by the numbers. And sometimes, you just become uninteresting. And confusing. Fiddy’s image is all over. He keeps it street, but he makes dildos(?) He’ll come see you, because he has so many resources, but he won’t come see you, because he has so mamy resources(?) He goes at good rappers, but not with good raps(?) I think he is a terrible business man. But he has paved a new lane for individuals who want to use “rap” to get rich: Fiddy is a business-coon.

  • Ya Boy

    Lol @ dude that tried to say it was first day sales. Negro please. It clearly says based on first day sales its projected to sell 150k. Idiot.

  • wax

    its 2010, we all know the music biz as we once knew it is over, and you dummies are still arguing about first week sales on xxl

    smh

  • sealsaa

    After all the shit talking 50 did about Rawls’ album having twice the marketing of Jadakiss’ album and doing the same numbers, i’ll be curious to see what spin he’ll put on the situation if he does the same or less. Lets not forget that this album had been pushed back considerably because album sale projections were low(whether he chooses to admit it or not).

    And for all those 50 supporters who claim that album sales don’t matter, like the man said; “we don’t believe you, you need more people”. 50 used to be Mr. Soundscan. Now since his buzz isn’t what it used to be, soundscan sales don’t aren’t important? C’mon son…

    • $ykotic/Don McCaine

      Personally I feel they should both battle 1 more time if their opening numbers are equivalent.

      And yes if both of them don’t get a circle or triangle next to their name, off of the latest project, they both lost.

  • Big Mike

    HAHAHA It’s a lot of haters on here. Ya’ll act like 50 fucked ya’ll mom or girl. It is a solid album. He’s already successful. Within a month this album will be Platinum worldwide.

  • 50centfan

    wow!!! i feel kind of stupid buying the cd on itunes. no one in my school bought it and no one wanted to listen to it. the movie was ok i thought i got a deal buying it but i coulnd’t wait for the songs to stop. i just hope it will be a collectors item but then again i got it off of itunes. damn

    • macdatruest

      next time buy it for yourself and not because you think you will be part of a crowd. Why do you need other people to listen to it?? Like they dont know who Fiddy is or cant afford that shitty album if they wanted it… I would feel stupid if I was you too. What made you think people would want to hear a Fiddy Cent album?? This is Curtis we’re talking about here. He made Ayo Technology

  • flypaper

    @wax
    first of all, it’s only 2009. what the fuck are you smokin???

    Secondly, you would have a point if 50 didn’t intentionally put an emphasis on record sales. 50 just got done clownin Fat Joe and Triple C’s album sales. This is actually more embarassing than Kanye beating him after he talked all that shit. The only difference is that this time he’s not making big money so he has nothing to fall back on. There is no bright side to this scenario.

  • angee

    50 is the king, you will see the boss 50 sall that he never did

  • money mitch

    even if 50 only manages 150K..which I highly doubt , especially if Soundscan is including those iTunes numbers…it’s still a relatively good debut considering the economic times and how it has affected the industry…shit…rick ross and the triple c’s debuted no where near that…n fat joe =8,800 first week
    50 cent= 150k projected first week

    this means 50 did over 15 times better than Fat Joe lol

    nah i think 50Cent is gonna sell 300-400K for the first week though

  • haydz

    haha

    haha man, u think all this shit now but wait a week or two

    ONE THING EVERYONE

    FIFTY IS THE BIGGET SELLING INTERNATIONAL HIP-HOP/RAP ARTIST OF ALL TIME. HE IS ADORED WORLDWIDE, THE CD ISNT EVEN OUT EVERYWHERE, IT COMES OUT THIS WEEKEND HERE IN AUSTRALIA, AND THAT WILL ADD 50-150 THOUSAND ATEAST, AND IN EUROPE, ASIA, IN JAPAN BABY BY ME WAS NO.1 ON RINGOTNE N SONG

      Nigga you act like Jay aint International. Beans aint though, and I’ll give you 10 grand in real American money if Fiddy can turn Beans into an international artist. not even 150,000 after almost two weeks is ass

    People can say what they want but you cant make excuses for 50. Because 50 is the same guy who will mock people for sales and has no limits. He laughs at Rick Ross’s sales but does basically the same thing? Yea he is going to be mocked. But I do believe the numbers will go up but wont go plat.

  • Young 50

    What people fail to realize is his album came out Monday so how and the hell can they project what he gone sell today. They did the same shit in “07″ vs. Kanye and they were 200,000 off his sales. Dont believe the hype.

  • Still a Fan of Fif

    I seen at least 50 posters in here come to laugh at fifty for being a “loser”. Saying 50 doesnt have the “star power” that he think he has.
    Are yLL OUT YALL RABBIT ASS MINDS? Fifty is an icon in the game. Thers Jayz, Eminem and 50, then every one else falls in line. Throw Wayne and Kanye in that mix. Fifty dropped quality music, now people hating on the projected sales. When he got major sales, you hated on the music. 50 will do good enough. He will do good enough numbers, and his place in history is solified.

    ross is a cartoon. dont compare the two

  • Jim

    There is a very, very good chance he will sell less than Rick Ross.

  • SilkCityP

    He will sale lower than Jay, I know that… but as far as who has the better album…..

    BISD > Blueprint 3

    Neither are classics, but 50 did what he was supposed to with this record! You take 3 records off BISD and replace them with something different and good from 50, and it would be as good as Get Rich.

  • bob

    50 fans are tripping, he fell off fucking hard. And to say he doesn’t care about sales is ridiculous. He CONSTANTLY makes fun of other artists for their first week numbers, and always brags about what Get Rich and The Massacre did. It was inevitable that one day his sales would be low, and that day has come. For a man to sell 1.14 in 4 days 4 years ago, and do 150-60K now is pitiful. 50′s a smart guy though, he is rich as fuck so he doesn’t need to rap anymore. All he had was a buzz, and it didn’t last, he’s musically irrelevant. If he released another record in 2 years it would probably do Fat Joe numbers.

    50 is about to become the latest victim of “them boys talented as hell, but they did it to themselves” jays one smart dude he just gives them the rope then kicks away the chair heres a list of where are they nows of ppl who tried to take shots

    dame dash = broke lost wife contemplating suicide

    camron = broke fell off go knocked the fuck out and cried contemplating suicide

    the game = on the verge of falling off producing the wakest music of his career and forever contemplating suicide cos jay wont diss him back

    juelz santana = album coming out 18th neveruary
    19 – never – 9

    lil wayne = smart man quickly apologised and shut the fuck up while continuing to dick ride jay (his idol)

    jim jones = who?

    50 cent = as desperate as he has ever been backs to the ropes on the ice tip of falling off and pulling all sorts of desperate moves to stay alive but boi bout to be ja rules out the game

    T-Pain = quickly apologised then retracted then apologised and is currently contemplating suicide

  • redheadkilla

    yall are fucking stupid saying he didnt even sell as much as ross, the week aint even over. but never mind that, everyone on here that said it was a dope album be real did you buy it? exactly you cant say shit cus you’re part of the problem. Curtis wouldnt had sold as much as it did if it wasnt for the kanye battle so you can’t call him out for doing worse then that album when it wasnt even a good album. i personally wouldn’t say 150 is flopping, how many artist dont even break 150 in total. i dont think sales should matter, if it’s a number one album its a number one album so he’s still doing something right

    • vonnievonn65

      50 cents and his stans made everything about money and sales…..we tried to convince you when it was involving other artist projects that it’s not about sales and that they have declined for most all artist…but NOOOO you didnt want to buy it…

      now that the shoe has flopped on the other foot you all are scrambling making a bunch of excuses for him that you wouldnt allow for another artist…lets face facts this nigga flopped in eyes of us…not because the sales are low…because of who he is and what he says about another artist sales…and the fact that he is a mega star..these other artist like Rick Ross, Fat Joe, whoever else are not as big of a star as he has been so you expect the decline in sales due to the recession to effect them…it didnt affect Wayne, Eminem or Jayz as much…and he is on their level…

      this is a major flop dude facts the fucking facts….and to think he knew he was gonna flop thats why he pulled out all the stops for this project…riding Beans and Jayz dick, dissing Fat Joe again…taking pics with Rick Ross’s son (so fucking disgusting) dissing Game and Buck…on every fugging talk show and pic on every site….he is a MAJOR FAILURE….they even trying to incorporate digit sales into the 1st week sales and they have not done that for anyone else prior….and the fact that his album leaked so did everyone elses…hell he was behind Games and Fat Joe leaks…this nigga is scandalous and he is finally getting paid back for all his bullshet…Karma….I know you have to believe in KARMA….

      so let us the people that dont support his bullshet have our time to laugh at this embarrassment of a human being….because for me the straw that broke the camel’s back was those pics with Ross’s son…that to me made me feel so upset as a parent….to imagine my child in the arms of my enemy….thats was OVERBOARD and enough to make me kill that dude!!!!!!!!!!!!

      LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO he FLOPPED thats my early CHRISTMAS GIFT!!!!!

      • C.O. Killer

        n i bet u d same nigga dat said officer ricky 156k wasnt a flop! gtfoh! if 150 is flop, den i guess 156k is also a flop! stop prayin 4 a nigga’s downfall!

  • MAC 50

    This just proves niggas is gon’ hate on 50 no matter what. They been sayin’ he sold out he only goes for sales and that he ain’t hard no more. That he should go back to the old school harcore shit. Now he did that with this album and made his best album since Get Rich and now y’all talkin shit because of the sales. Go listen to the album then talk shit. Face it, in this enviroment ain’t nobody gonna sell big. So just shut the fuck up and if you wanna talk shit, do it about the album not the mothafuckin sales. Dopest album out this year hands down.

    If you’re shocked at the numbers you’re stupid…nobody going 600k in one week…50 is a character but musically he’s not bad as most of the bull out here…I think this disc will be okay to listen to…can’t say any of them in the past been wack besides that sorry soundtrack…it is what is…knew that when them G-Unit numbers came in…dude remains a power player hate it or love it…but he is getting his comeuppings for all the drama.

And Bisd is an purposely “hardcore” album. The double standard is killing us as a nation

  • TexasBoy210

    Damn I knew 50 wouldn’t sell more than 200k in the 1st week. His album got leaked which was fast and wondering how easily that happen and got me thinking that he did it purposely so he goes to a radio station and says he can’t worry bout sales now that his album is leaked. Then he pushes his album up to counter the leak and tries to sell the album digital before the hard copy of the album hopping the billboard 100 will count it with the actual release date so he can have 2 weeks on it but failed. All the 50 cent fans are all saying that the digital sales should count and others say that record sales don’t count which are probably the ones were laughing at Deeper Than Rap sales and on another note the Triple C’s album doesn’t count as a Rick Ross album. Next people are saying that record sales aren’t as they use to be, but how come it’s possible for Eminem, Lil’ Wayne, Kanye West, Jay-Z & T.I.’s latest albums go atleast gold in the first week. See 50 Cent is gettin’ what he deserves what he got and it’s karma and if his album sells more than 200k I’ll know 50 went to best buy to buy his albums with Mayweather.

  • tommy gunz

    album will do about 325k first week

  • fg

    i will personally wait to see the actual numbers bvefore i celebrate his failure.

    however i feel that fifty carrer is over and was over the moment he lost that album battle with kanye .cos his whole career was based on sales and beef .the moment that someone outsold him by dropping on the same day,it too away his armour .there are no real fiddy fans .just fans of his sales and his beefs .his oss to kanye ended his sales invincibility and notice that ever since that flop was when the g unit really started flopping overall.

    his inability to squash camron(another bicth ass nigga ),cos camron was the only mc who was childish enough to play fifty at his own game e.g videos and the whole cuuurrrtis thing and mocking him overthe net and ther whole thing with rick ross who also played fifty at his own game with all the video disses and shit took away his ability to clow niggaz.now he is nuthing .

    just another dmx.gimmicks always get played out eventually.

  • fg

    @megavelli .

    jay-z put out a straight forward hip hop track in 2007 (american gangster ).no commercial joints .just sreet stuff all the way THROUGH . and it was a soundtrack .no hit singles nuthing and he still did 470 k first week.even despite his albbum leaking so kill that noise.

    and fiftys album is not a street record when u have a girls song ft neyo as ur lead single.

    this is fitys payback for putting out that song called fuck jimmy iovine .i guess jimmy decided to remind him who was boss and kill his entire brand.slowly and systematically .he even dropped the entire gunit minus fifty off interscope.

  • fg

    @hanch .

    hits daily double predicted that get roich or die trying will do 800k first week and second week and they were right .
    they predicted that massacre will do 1.1 mill fisrst week and they were right .
    they predicted curtis would do 600k and they were right .

    so why u wanna cry that they wrong now?

  • Chuck Dane

    What the fuck are all you bitch-ass haters talking about?

    First of all, you gotta wait and see what he does on Friday, because thats fucking pay day.
    Second of all, this site project 300K for BP3, and it rang in at around 475K, so based on past projections being completely fucking wrong, this one will likely be wrong too, and he more than likely will sell 250K+, which is 100K more than officer Ricky, and 225K more than the triple c’s record.

    As for the dude who said the album had four good songs, just cause a nigga beef with jay, don’t mean you gotta be a hater, why don’t you try listening to it without jay’s dick up your ass.

    For everyone else, quit hatin, and listen to his music, all four of his albums > all rick ross’s shit.

  • stickupkiD

    not a good morning at all….

    but this is ridiculous cause i believe he will sell at least 300-450 fist week cause hitsdailydouble cant check his digital sales which is runnning from since the 9th

    • macdatruest

      This is a perfect example of being in denial. They DID calculate the digital sales froma week ago just to bring the predicted numbers up and make the product look like it didnt sell under 100,000 first week, which it did. Undersell. And if Im not buying a cheap iTunes copy, Im not buying that clunky desperation gift pack he’s releasing in stores for double the price

    For all of the promotion he is doing and all of the the extra stuff that comes with the CD, anything less than 500k is a failure. Isn’t that what he said about Rick Ross? Maybe he will buy some of his own shit too since that is what he accuses others of doing. Karma is a motherfucka!! I hope he flops. I will not be buying it so fuck what it sells.

  • macdatruest

    Yall must not have read closely….

    it’s been available on iTunes since November 9th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    so actually they had his (one week) numbers on the 16th. They are just trying to show him some respect because of the epic proportions of the first week flop. They tallied his digital sales into the predictions and still predict his first week album sales (really week 2) would only be 150,000.

    But it cannot be based on (one day) if the album has been out since the 9th that’s impossible. AND their tallying that into his sales predictions!!!! His (real first week sales) from the 9th to the 16th of November had to be less than 150,000!!!!!! DAMN thats a historical flop for “the biggest artist in hip hop worldwide” as he claims he is

    So if we are going of his (real first week sales) Fiddy couldn’t have did over 75,000 in the real first week if they predict 150,000 for the decoy 1st week (again, really week 2)
    Now thats a bitch. He doing Bow Wow numbers and he on Conan O’ Brian???? Thats sad I know Fiddy stans is not gonna bring up GRODT now, that makes it even sadder frokm that to this in two albums, and Dre took his co-sign back

    WAKE UP!!!!!!!

    i tried listening to the album. it’s boring. sure, he’s trying to go hard again, but even the better songs are worn retreads of earlier efforts. 50 doesn’t have it anymore. in a month, it will be hard to remember what this album was called and we’ll all be anticipating wayne and em’s next rap releases.

    sorry.

  • vonnievonn65

    hitsdailydouble already tallied his itune sales….

    PUTTING THEIR 50 CENT IN: Like an NFL coaching staff making in-game adjustments on the fly, Interscope’s Jimmy Iovine and Steve Berman did some last-minute maneuvering around the release of 50 Cent’s Before I Self Destruct following worldwide Internet leaks weeks prior to the original street date. In rapid succession, they pushed forward the physical release date from Nov. 23 to Nov. 17—the soonest the CD could be manufactured and shipped—while also working out a one-week exclusive with iTunes for the digital album, to take effect Nov. 10. In return, iTunes agreed to go against its standard policy and “locked” the album, with only the single available a la carte, selling 46k album downloads during the exclusive window. Additionally, the compilers of the charts agreed to include the initial iTunes sales in the total for first week of general release, which is now looking in the 140-150k range. That won’t challenge Columbia’s John Mayer, now a lock for #1 with 275-300k. (11/18p)

    I’ve always been a huge 50 fan… I look up to him for not only his music but making himself something out of nothing, his entrepreneur spirit. I’ve never blogged before but I started to read some of the comments and I just had to ask. All of you (haters) hate 50 so much right?? Well in order to get to this page, you would of had to Google his name or something, Right? If he is so irrelevant to you, then why would you even waste your time and researching an artist that means jack to you?? I am not a fan of Rick Ross, French onion soup and country music. So guess what?! I don’t Google it. This is just so bizarre to me… if you hate him as an artist; Why would you Google 50 Cent in the 1st place?? I guess good or bad publicity is still publicity. So keep hating haters, keep adding hype! The only one laughing all the way to the bank, is 50 HAHAHAHA ;)

    I find it funny, that when 50 dropped Massacre & Curtis, with songs that were different, everybody wanted the hardcore 50 back. Then 50 drops a 90% hardcore album & people want the experimental 50 back. Some folks just cant be pleased. I like the album 10 songs deep, Im a try to finish it Today, but I keep rewinding So Disrespectful.

    i got the album with the movie…..and i gotta say…it´s HOOOOOOTTTT!!!!!greets from germany

  • http://savetscc.com Proof

    Here is why…ITS NOT WORTH THE PURCHASE.

    50 leaked too many good track on mixtapes & the internet. This album feels like felt over crap. The difference is Jay can make an ALBUM, not just songs. U might not hear from Jay in months to a year cause he isn’t out there making crappy muzik. He’ll try to make an album worth the purchase. Fiddy needs to step up his album making with a theme & better production.

    Lay off the hooks YO, get someone else to do the hooks. The CURTIS album was better than THE MASSACRE because he took that risk and it paid off to me. Akon, Justin, NEYO..and all these people make the album full with more than just him. Son needs to explore more and I hope this is an eye opener for him.

  • Tony Tone

    Yeah….i guess 50 gonna sell 300-400.000 copies first week(not including digital sales Itunes etc).Total sales after one year close to platinumin the u.s.a,But that doesn`t matter because i have a feeling that he`s gonna sell 1-3xplatinum abroad because he has huge fanbase outside u.s.a.Personally i not biggest B.I.S.D fan but atleast he went gansta on this joint.

      Mr tone he ain’t selling shit abroad i’m from the uk and ain’t nobody checking 4 him here and he got a english film out here with danny dyer that flopped after 1 wk what you gotta realise is that the rest of the world has the internet so wateva is bangin in new york now is bangin in ……..insert any city worldwide the days of waiting 3 months 4 the import at the local record shop is ova example my friend if u watched the 1st 10 mins of the carter doc cortez bryant said the leak of the carter 3 came from london not new orleans ,new york,cali etc we ain’t as behind as u think lol

  • Joe

    @HillHollow

    Actually nobody’s askin for anything from Fif, this post and his first week sales have very little, if anything, to do with actual material.

    Were just pointing out that for a ngga who bases his whole self-worth in hip hop on first week sales and numbers, and claims he ended Rick Ross’ career after Ross ‘only’ did 150k first week…

    This is what is called karma and extremely embarassing.

    jonny bizness,The fact that there`s a english film with 50 in it and it flopped doesn`t mean that it flopped because 50….it means it flopped because UK movies sucks balls anyways(what is the last movie worth watching that made impact in the movie scene,besides UK?get the fuck out of here),you can`t make movies that are even worth downloading.You only got qay richie(madonnas leftover) that can`t direct or produce movies at all!!!nuff said?Don`t get me wrong,lately things that 50 has done aint cool,posting videos with rick ross`s son,dissing jay-z to promote his album has backfired him costly.Hope The clipse and snoop sell decent in their first week in sales, Cheerio mate;)

  • Josh Lines

    Look, we all know his album isn’t going to sell well, and this is coming from a fan. Nobody sells well anymore but it got leaked early, moved back too much, didnt have a hit single so of course it won’t sell.
    Doesn’t mean it isn’t a good album, listened to it like 8 times just today, give it a chance, its class. 8.5/10.

  • Boo Boo

    Yo, its the kid 50 Cent. ITS 50! I just wanted to talk to y’all for a second at this point. It was interesting to hear that the general public thinks that I actually leaked my own project to have an actual excuse if my sales aren’t what they should be at this point. I would NOT do that. You see what I am saying. My project is generating the actual interest at this point to be successful. My songs perform on radio. The movie that I directed, the aggressive content, its all there at this point. I started the mixtape circuit. You know what I mean. The state of confusion by the general public at this point is crazy to me. Outside of Em, I have sold more than all of them.

    I am not bragging, I am just creating clarity for the general public. I’m in a good space. Get Rich sold ten million. The Massacre was actually a double CD. It was the maximum amount of time I could put on an actual CD, and it sold 10 million albums. My fans are worldwide. You see what I’m saying.

    Check this out; You can’t name a rapper that has sold more than me at this point. I put those artists in a space where they can’t sell or compete at this point. Ja, Cam, Joe, Ross, Khalid, all of them. You see what I’m saying. The general public doesn’t care about them at this point. Don’t get me wrong, you can’t take away from what Jay has accomplished, but he let the actual money change him. You see it in his personal character. He doesn’t actually compete. I do what I want. It is interesting to hear people say I have changed. I have got the aggressive content in my material. The harsh realities. I have been nominated 13 times and haven’t actually won. The material that I am releasing is dirty, even more than Get Rich at this point. Dre didn’t actually mix my joint on time, but I love the response the project is getting at this point. I just pushed the reset button. The actual projections are interesting and response from them. My joints actually generate interest overseas, more than all of them. I am your favorite artist, and if I’m not, I wanna know why.

  • Capt. Obvious

    with so much violence going on in the world, do people really wanna hear a gangsta album? i sure as hell don’t! That shit is dead lika mutha fucka…i hope he retires after this cus if he drops another album he might end up doing wale numbers and that is just SAD for 50 cent (not wale) Here’s the thing…If you want 2 stay relevant you have change with the times… In this case he kinda went backwards instead of forward… but on the other hand if u think about this realistcally it was bound to happen because he came out in an era where gangsta rap was needed…and he single-handedly filled that void…he embodied that persona to the point where if he stepped out of that lane he would of gotten dissed, horribly and called a sellout! He kinda set himself up for failure and now he’s basically reaping the benefits of it. Think about it… it’s impossible for him to do an 808′s and heartbreak or a love in this club album or even a drake collaboration and because he’s created so many enemies, NOBODY is willing to collaborate with him! (he burned his bridges) i’m not saying he doesn’t have any fans i’m just saying he’s officially PLAYED OUT…he should just bow out gracefully…put an end to g-unit….and become a director…he’s already rich…as far as g-unit, banks is the only 1 with a morsel of talent so 50 should let him go be on his own, away from 50′s shadow and beans if you are reading this RUN 4 YOUR FUCKING LIFE…shit join young money they’ll take anybody. {Capt Out}

  • Black Rick

    I listened to the album and it’s solid,not classic or nothing,but solid.The only thing that kills me about people is that most say rap is a sport and it’s competitive,but all of a sudden when a record isn’t a smash hit then record sales don’t matter.Record sales are important,like it or not.The sad part is tht all good albums don’t sell(Reasonable Doubt?).I happen to like 50 and Jigga,so i don’t give a fuck about sales anyway.BISD is a solid album noe the less.

    Damn 50 done fucked up. I hate to see it happen to him I actually like 50 but he went to hard on the extra shit and didn’t focus on the music. I think BISD is a good album but not great and it needed to be great.

    I was never really into album sales, if it’s hot it’s hot, but I guess “if you live by the sword you die by the sword” and 50 is always talking about album sales so he did it to himself.

    Having said all that, I think 50 is great at promotions and setting up his albums but when your album gets pushed back so many times and then gets leaked a FULL MONTH before its release date thats something you can’t come back from. I know everyone’s album gets leaked but not a full month before, maybe a week before or two.

    I also think that 50 fucked up his image. Rapper have to be very careful with their image, they are their brand and you have remain consistent or fans get confused. 50 was suppose to be a hardcore dude, strong, menacing, someone you wouldn’t want to fuck with but then he started to act like a clown with the Curly skits and all that nonsense and it changed people’s perception of him. It confused many of the fans, was he a scary dude or a funny dude? It totally ruined his image and the brand.

    The smartest (and highest selling) artists are the ones that don’t do many internet video interviews, or skits, or beef videos, etc. They just let the music do the talking. If you look at Jay Z, Eminem, Kanye, Lil Wayne, etc. they don’t put out internet videos because it’s always better to establish your image and let the fans build you up in their minds. For example, Jay’s image is that of a no nonsense businessman/hustler but if he started putting out comedy videos even if it was actually funny it wouldn’t fit the image and would ruin his brand. Same with Em, Eminem’s image is that of a dark, social misfit, misunderstood, the outcast that can’t even get along with his own Mother, if he started to put out happy videos with him clowning around, smiling, enjoying himself he’d ruin that image and his brand. Bottomline is that you can’t over saturate the market especially with videos that are contrary to your brand and 50 Cent did that, over and over again.

    Still though I hope he can recover but it’s gonna be hard cause once people see you a certain way it’s hard to change their minds. But I wish him luck because I actually like most of his music and I think he brings a certain element that Hip Hop is missing.

    Somewhere at this moment, Ja Rule continues to gloat. Those two will be kicking it very soon in the has-beens corner with MC Hammer, Vanilla Ice, Master P and various other rappers that have came and went.

    what i think happened is after 50 kicked young buck(the best artist g unit had) out the group and then let everybody hear the conversation it took a lot of credibility away from him making him appear shady no pun intended. a lot of ppl who maybe would had bought the album got turned off by that including me.
