Go here to read the whole interview: http://www.spin.com/features/magazine/2007/07/0707_50cent/


What about the MCs -- Chamillionaire, Ghostface Killah, Master P -- who have said that they're not going to curse in their music anymore, in response to the post-Imus outcry?
None of those people sell records.

Chamillionaire sold more than a million records.
Let him go sell gospel records, if he's so fuckin' righteous. I can write around the curses if I want to, but you can't tell me to write around the curses. First of all, there's a clean version of the record available, anyway, if people don't want to hear that content. This is adult entertainment. Why is pornography legal? Wouldn't you say that the women who do pornography are hos? They get paid $1,000 to fuck on tape. You understand? And we can't say 'ho'? And who's the leading consumer for pussy on a tape? Middle-aged white men.

The peanut gallery: "White men, yeah. They buy all of it. They're spending way more."

These white men are buying the pussy from the hos because they aren't being sexually fulfilled by the women they have in their traditional lifestyle at home. And they go outside for the thrills without any attachment, so when they go home, there's no phone number or nobody calling who can ruin their fuckin' lives. So it's understandable why pornography is the way it is. But after all that, why is somebody worried about me saying 'ho'? I make up different terminology all the time. I made an effort to make a reference to a male organ without being disrespectful in a woman's presence on "Candy Shop." If you say "penis, cock, dick," whatever way you want to say it, that's going to be disrespectful in the presence of some women, so I said, "the magic stick" and "the candy shop" is the bedroom and the "amusement park" is the bedroom, trying to come up with a way to do it where you're not being disrespectful. But those efforts apparently don't mean very much.

So what do you really think about those guys who say they're not going to curse anymore?
They're just saying it. They're not going to really do it.

Yeah, it's hard to imagine Ghostface is going to stop cursing, especially considering his last couple of records.

The peanut gallery: "Nobody even cares what he does." "Who's listening to him, anyway?" "That was the '90s, B. Kids don't even know Ghostface anymore." "The streets are different now," says Yayo. "Guys like Ghostface don't matter. They don't. They had a run, but it's over."

But can't he just make a great record, even if it doesn't sell, and we can appreciate it as listeners, as hip-hop fans?
No, because a great record is embraced and enjoyed by the public. And it's played in cars and clubs.

What if it sells a couple hundred thousand copies, isn't that valid? Or does it have to sell millions for you to take it seriously?
In my camp, a couple hundred thousand records is a failure. From my perspective, if I sell 200,000 copies, after selling 12 million records, it's considered terrible.

But maybe he's trying to make a different kind of record?
What, the kind people don't buy?

No, one with incredible, detailed storytelling that's moving and powerful, and isn't dependent on some obvious hook.
Look, I understand all that. But if you're on a major record label, and he [Ghostface] is, and you sell a couple hundred thousand records, that was a failure. Your fuckin' photos and videos aren't recouped with 200,000 copies sold.

OK, but can you at least acknowledge that a commercial flop, like, say, [Ghostface's] Supreme Clientele, can still be an artistic achievement?

"He didn't even write that album, man," says Yayo, his eyes narrowing.

What?

Yayo: "He didn't write it. That kid from Far Rockaway -- Superb -- he wrote that record. You know Superb from Far Rock?"

No, and that's a pretty serious charge.

lmao @ 50's pathetic position. He has become the masses, instead of standing above them. What a pathetic show for an idol aka leader.

^lol anyways both yayo & 50 have rapped on 2 Wu-tang beats plus on 50's song "Too Hot" there's a Ghostface sample. Also there's a song off The Massacre that has the same beat as Ghostface's song. I think it was Metal Lungies. 1 last thing, on his (50's) song with UGK (as the worlf turns) he rapped something like "whoever's in the game for the fame gotta be a lame" or something like that. 50 lost.

Aw man, I can't wait to hear the Tony Stark/Carlton Fisk attack record.

And honestly, Ghost could kill 50, lyrically, even without cussing

I don't really like 50 Cent or Yayo's music that much, but they really do have a point.

Ghostface ain't been relavent to anyone in the industry in quite sometime.

Post that what 50 said right after Yayo said Superb wrote that album too.. 'cause I think that actually shows it's true that Ghostface didn't write it.. 50 quikly went like "I don't know nothing about any of that. Let's say he's the writer, than still.." I think Yayo wasn't supposed to say that in public so 50 tried to cover it up because the people who told them that are probally people over at Universal so they don't want that info to come out in the news.

I've never been a Ghostface fan.....

No one that I know is ever buzzing about a Ghostface record (and we don't have the radios tuned in either, so it's not cuz he doesn't appeal to "most mainstream")..........

Does anyone have any update as to what Ghostface's last album sold?

It's been out for quite sometime now, so if he went Gold I'll take back the comment about him "not be relavent".

As poor as most artist's sales are doing these days, gold really = platnium now, so unless he did gold I really don't see him as having an impact on anyone but the "hip-hop heads" who never stopped claiming "hip-hop is dead" ever since they picked up Nas' latest release.

Then again.............I'm on the westcoast & that could be a specific reason why I never hear any kind of buzz about him around here.

Someone PLEASE prove me wrong about the nature of Ghostface in the hip-hop game today, because I don't like going against the majority too often, but this is just what I'm feeling right now.

I'm not saying Buck or Banks or anyone of them is a better lyricist or has better albums compared to Ghostface........simply because I haven't listened to a  Buck album or a Banks album or a Yayo album yet that I didn't think was trash.

On the other hand, although I haven't listened to that many, I've never heard a Ghostface track that I liked either.  :-X

ghost could do some pop music like 50 cent but he chose to do that thug slanging criminal banging wu tang kung fu shit, you gotta respect that, just like the roots keep doing their jazzy-rap fusion that doesn't sell.

Damn. If that's the truth then I gotta take back my word against Ghostface.

If he has that many peeps supporting him, maybe he just needs a better promotion machine behind him.

I really heard little to nothing about his last album while it was in it's "prime market selling time", but I'm sure that means a ton of other people were just like me.

If he really did do 700,000 +, imagine what he could've done with some better decisions being made on the promotion end of things!

Yeah I know what you're sayin bro.

At the very least, at least Ghostface got the streets on his side, and he's been doing this for a long-ass minute already.

Yayo just lucky that Em decided to sport the "Free Yayo" shirts on TV, otherwise he'd be even less popular than he is now (if that's imaginable).
