what are the chances they drop a video, line up another single, drop that, then wait ages until all the buzz has worn off to release the album? sounds like a classic interscope play to me.

surprised 50 would want his album pushed back if its really as good as he's making it out to be.

real life translation = 50's album would be a flop as things stand, eminem would sell way more outta the blocks. unfortunately eminem isn't coming anytime soon either. summer time at the very earliest.

expect 50 to come late '09, if at all. detox 2010-2012 sometime, if at all and if the world economy is still in one piece.

'09 = the year of aftermath? the 3 headed monster? :laugh:
initially he wanted to drop it early 2008, so do the math.
his career is over

^he will still sell the same either way; i wonder if its because 50's album is just going to be average & Interscope doesnt want the people thinking Eminem's album will be a let down too, which could possibly hurt his sales; so they let him go first?

i dont know. :P

Nope.

Actually I heard that 50's album is dope.

i hope so, you know someone who heard pieces of it?

I know some people who work with Aftermath (including artists).

some dope shit, but are they giving real talk? cuz i mean i am sure people said at Aftermath when Encore & Curtis came out "yeah, my dudes droppin HEAT!".

Some of them do... I remember someone specifically telling me that ENCORE was weak before it came out.

... and btw people... "Crack A Bottle" is a buzz track... a street single so to speak. And it wasn't planned to be but due to the early leak it turned out that way.

We still don't have a lead single to RELAPSE.

50% chance of that happening.

Also a 50% chance of a random Fergie/PCD feature to "target core consumers" lol.

The current plan is Em in Spring, 50 in Summer, Dre in late Fall, Bishop early '10 and a "Up In Smoke Tour 2" throughout the summer of '10

Looks like Dre is shooting for a late-Nov release - 10 years since 2001 and all that.

Although it's still February, so you can add at least two months to each of those dates.

seems a bit far fetched to me. would be surprised if 2/3 of those albums dropped this year, shocked if they somehow managed to release 3/3.

He can build buzz off the back of Eminem's album.

50's not one to wait around; this is his last album on Interscope. If he wants to release BISD on the back of the Detox hype, then Detox would have to come this year.

50 knows better than most people how imminent the Detox release is; if it's delayed into 2010 there's no way he'd wait that long.

All he needs is a Dre/Storch banger for the bitches in the summertime - add some lyrics which don't mean a lot and he's back on top lol.

50 could've easilly dropped in December when Get Up was getting solid radio play and he had that MTV show and all. He would've went platinum in USA but the problem with him is that he wants to go like 3x plat, which also leads us to forced recycled singles. Because Kanye, Wayne and T.I. have surpassed him in the popularity and he has a hard time accepting that, when he's gonna be like Jay from now on, going 1x plat and thats it. He can probably still reach those numbers but in order to do that he needs to take a break, he oversaturated the market and in the last 2 years with crappy albums like Curtis and T.O.S.

Its Eminem, this is the biggest artist on Interscope, they've already got a number one single off of a simple buzz track, if this album doesnt come then Iovine has lost all business sense...

didnt Encore shoot well past platinum (correct me if i am wrong)? all Eminem needs to do is put out a solo track for the people & he should sell fairly nicely off the name alone & probably still fairly large fanbase he has.

i think he should have tried to line that up together for a little extra boost.

when you read a book about a rapper; you almost instantly want to just bump the guys music (if you liked the book that is) lol.

Slim will still do good on the charts, but i dont give a fuck how much he sells, i just want good music out of the man! 8)

interscope has lost all business sense. watch them fuck up eminem, 50 and ultimately detox. not to say the music won't be good, but the sales will be down on what they coulda got with smarter marketing and timing.

ohh, no doubt he cant do any worse.

i am hoping for an "Eminem Show" type album.

if he could come close, that would be nice; if he could match it, that would be great & if he can top it that would insane & DOPE! 8)

but i have a feeling if its any one of those, its coming close lol. ;) :P

I'm cool for a while now that I have "I Am Hip Hop" and "Coming Back " in my whip. Those were heaters. Aftermath lets everyone down , we all know that. 50 needs to fall back and let the sales begin with "Relapse " and "Detox". Atleast the Eminem album will give us a real good look into the shit they think is "that next level " shit.
