For real, Jim Jones' lyrics are W.A.C.K. that makes the album garbage. They wisely used the popularity of thier slang for their singles like Ballin' but even you Spice can't say his lyrics are deep or anything like that.

I dont know tho over saturated???

Rocafella was putting out like 4 records a year with JAy z putting out a record at least oce a year and htose dint flop.

I hate Jay-Z, but he could actually flow if he tried. I don't think 50 can. Plus Jay aligned himself with some of the best rappers, unlike 50 who hates everyone in the industry. Jay is a real businessman, whereas 50 is a product of hype because of Eminem.

THats true because

Siegal kills any memeber of Gunit and so does M BLeek. Actualy so deos freeway lol

Beanie Sigel definately, Freeway when he is on, but I can't consiously say Bleek could out rap G-Unit or anyone for that matter. Either way, 50 had a good run but I don't think he knows when to throw in the towel. He's the new Master P. If 50 hadn't been shot, he would have never been half as successful as he was. He has way too many yes men around him.

I think 50ís real problem is he doesnít try anything different. Iím not saying he needs to reinvent himself but damn man, how many times are you going to come with that same Dre (or dre esk) produced, dumbed down lyrics, rapping for the ladies first single. Itís old and itís boring. Weíve heard that from 50. Now the fans want something fresh or we donít want anything at all. 

If he really was the business minded genies he claims to be heíd realize now is the time to switch it up in a big way. Drop an album full of street/backpack records. Work with different mid-level producers, no one big name. Concentrate on the lyrics and being creative, no love songs, no club songs. Forget about an album the radio wants to play and focus on an album people want to listen to.

Then there wont be so much pressure to out do himself. If he comes with something totally different he can explain away lack of sales or radio play as, ďhey, itís a totally different sound it isnít for the radio.Ē As it stands now he keeps coming with the same shit and if he doesnít sell more records and get more radio play than the last time the perception is heís losing it.

Interscope and Shady saw this months ago, if 50 doesnít read the writing on the wall heíll have to no choice but to retire to save face.


I agree completely. And even though I haven't liked 50's stuff after GRODT (save a few cuts here and there), I think he could do it. He was never one to compete for the G.O.A.T.-crown, no way, but he used to spit real good. It just seems that once he got rich, all motivation was gone. Too bad.

True that's some real talk. But everyone drags in other (hatin') arguments like 'he's a snitch" and blablabla. The same people bump Scarface on the regular, lol.

It is very true he can do better, just need some motivation. It's a shame that talent is lost this way, even though i agree with the dude who said Interscope probably is to blame as well for the lack of creativity on G-Unit's part. They were really tight back in hte days, nowadays their music just sounds different.
