Title: Rakim should have made an appearance....
Post by: _That_Cracka_J on April 17, 2003, 07:28:12 PM
....on 50 Cent's CD.  I don't think that the 8 Mile Soundtrack, Jay Z album and Truth Hurts album created enough hype for him.  If he woulda been on the 50 CD, then people would really be anticipating his release.

Well yeah, but I'm looking at the marketing aspect of it.  There's no promotion for this album.  Rakim would sell a lot more if he had made an appearance on 50's album.

Over two years working on this album.  i am sure Dre is going to do everything to get as much promotion as possible.  i know being on 50's album would've helped, but they probably already have their promotion plans ready.  We should be hearing him on another album before we hear the first single.

i'm sure 50 didn't want to get murdered on his own shit again.
i bet the new kane will turn out better than ra's album anyway so i start to care less and less about it.

Very good point!
I think it's great for 50 to blow up like he has, but he's nowhere close the skills of Rakim. Makin' a track with 50 and Rakim would make 50 Cent look pale.
And speakin' about Kane: I'm anticipatin' this shit! But Kane, as always, takes his time to make it perfect. This could be a real comeback!
