this isn't surprising. but then again i think 50 knew this wasn't gonna sell. it wasn't promoted and had no kind of budget for production. and then the small fact that tony yayo is all over it, so even if it was potentially good then it's automatically garbage. even on his crappy curtis lp, 50 dropped a hot single to make sure it had a decent first week.

more than likely 50 and the unit aren't on very good terms with jimmy any more and 50 is wanting to get off the label cause his ego has become way too big and he's completely forgot what (more like who) made him mega-popular in the first place.

Got what they deserved:

- album budget of a mixtape
- same old predictable singles formula, same subject matter as in 03, no growth
- 50 wasn't even there for the most part of the promotion, he was shooting a movie and you know nobody gives a fuck about Banks and Yayo
- the cd must have been made in like 2 months, 50 probably wants to get off Interscope as soon as possible, allowing Banks & Yayo to get some dough in the process
- I can already see the exuse: "the album material was too agressive to be accepted by the general public/ demographic" from 50's favorite book "how to sound articulate and stay a G"

Wow i was expecting less. They aint done badly compared to most and seeing as none of their singles broke the top 50. I doubt theres few artists that could put out group albums and get sales like e.g. USDA anyone? But album was wack compared to Beg For Mercy and had nothin spent on it so im stll kinda surprised iiiiwll sell over 100,000 copies first week.

yer curtis was average but still sold over a milli which is real gd in this climate. 50 still a huge artist but he cant just throw anythin out now and it be a hit he need somethin bangin.

I'm bettin that Nas' first week sales will beat what G-Unit did.........I haven't listened to G-unit since around 03 but I downloaded TOS just to see what they have been up to & it seems that it is just the same old same old ish they put out(which is pretty much why I don't listen to their music anymore).....Yayo being on the album does more harm than it helps........the beats weren't anything great.........Banks just seems like he doesn't try that hard at spitting anymore.......& 50 isn't a rapper anymore.......all these things equaled a minus for G-Unit........they still have fans but I bet a lot of the fans that did buy the cd were disappointed & the cd won't be in very heavy rotation.......just my opinion

50 was played out a week after Get Rich Die Trying Droped.

I think the funniest thing about G-Unit new albums, is that bullshit rumor (that I wouldn't doubt they started him selves)that not enough album were pressed for the high demand. So if you wanted the album you'd have to get it right away or have to wait another week for them to press more copies.

wow, R.I.P. music industry

this just in , More jobs to be cut more people to be laid off



I was just reading in billboard magazine how sales are down from last year,and last year was the first year ever that the industry didn't sell something like 600 million albums. So this shit keep gettin worse and worse time for niggaz to find a new hustle.

And tos is an good album at that.

I also liken 50 is looking to get out of the contract with interscope and only did this album due to contractual obligation and label protestation - he couldn't release Before I Self Destruct as soon as he would've like and was told to relese a g-unit album instead.   Boys been talking about it for a minute or two so I'm not surprised.

I actually don't think the second half of this album is that bad.  50 & G-Unit get a lot of hate.

Yea bro not many people work at record labels anymore, there really isn't no more a & r's, everythings been wiped out... i dont know but can you recall a couple years ago, when people were making the arguement "the internet didnt kill the record buisness its not at fault, its the shitty music thats being put out"
well labels still have great assets, however cannot make any money off of them. kinda feel bad for those people who went to school for a music degree,
who went all out moved in from out of town in high hopes of coming to L.A./Hollywood to have a career in the record buisness.

"music is a great hobby, but a lousy buisness"

i feel that increasingly poor output is just to much a blame as the general market decline for poor sales. both things happening at the same time means the industry is doing really badly and labels are being ultra hesistant about releasing anything/putting money into marketing entire albums. albums that have enough quality throughout and are marketed by great singles are still selling fairly well, its just there's hardly any products out there like that anymore.

Like someone said earlier, I think 50 is just fullfilling his contract obligations to either re-up big with Interscope or go somewhere else. BFM was worth getting just for the beats alone. Hi-Tek, Dre, Sam Sneed, Needlez, etc. Now it's obvious they wanted to just get this out there from the selection of beatmakers on this one. Now I am all for giving new producers a chance but most of those producers I just mentioned are IN HOUSE. You ain't got to go far to get a Dre or Hi-Tek beat.
