The final numbers are in, and 50 Cent’s independent release Animal Ambition will break the Queens rapper’s streak of topping 100,000 units sold out the gate. Fiddy’s 5th studio album will open with under less than half of that amount in its first week.


According to Hits Daily Double, Animal Ambition pushed around 40,000 copies during its initial week. The final total is slightly higher than the 30,000 – 35,000 range the site predicted for the project, but it is still the lowest opening week sales of 50′s career.

Previous 50 Cent studio albums have all been commercially successfully. Get Rich or Die Tryin’ (872,000), The Massacre (1.14 million), Curtis (691,000), and Before I Self Destruct (160,000) opened with a minimum of 6-figures in units sold opening week and went on to reach at least gold status in the United States.

50 is planning to drop a second crappy album this year. Street King Immortal is scheduled to be released this September. The reunited GAY-Unit is also looking to release a project in November.  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

nobody thought he was going to do more than 100K first week lol so it's not a fluke

fluke for 50 Cent would be under 10K IMO and don't forget he's indie now so he still made bank off this first week alone

He probably made good money going independent though.  Not to mention his cut for youtube views.

yall dont understand the independent hustle....he made this album on the cheap. he pocketed the budget he keeps the lion share of what this album makes if buzz keeps generating then album sales will be semi consistent for the next few months. maybe he can put a summer jam out to give it some legs...as his first venture into being independent i think this is a good look but yall are stuck in the past and still thinking albums are getting multi  million dollar budgets and are expected to perform as they did 93-03...indepndant you actually anticipate the oppsoite i doubt they even pressed up 500k copies of this.

Some serious hating going on in here.  I don't think anyone was expecting him to do Interscope numbers.

nobody thought he was going to do more than 100K first week lol so it's not a fluke

  I think you have "fluke" confused with "flop".

I read an article on XXL with all of the producers from the album and majority of them sent those tracks to 50 back in 2008-2010 so you're absolutely right

This is the same excuse we used to give to artist he was hating on for going indy (Dipset) and 50 called BS on that excuse. He's eating crow right now.

I wonder why he chose those weak productions to rap. Dude has enough money to buy beats from any beatmakers, maybe the business has taken his ability to pick good beats.

no angle homie its just facts we r here to give our opinions on music
fact the fan weather fans were all 50 fans where r they now
if 50 would have dropped his original album on sony records he would have not sold near what he sold with dre
50 was a mixtape rapper from ny how all a sudden the whole world knows him he can thank dre and em who at that time were hot
do you think people would have loved them boring ny beats i dont think so again he can thank dre for that also in da club 50 biggest hit was a detox beat

im not the biggest game fan but i did like his mixtapes back in the day many of those mixtapes aimed at gay unit
