50 Cent Plots Summertime Comeback With New LP

50+Cent++Promo 50 Cent Plots Summertime Comeback With New LP

Remember when 50 Cent‘s music was inescapable on radio? Remember when 50 Cent was the biggest rapper in the game? Remember when 50 Cent was relevant to music? Think hard…

Since the early 00′s rap music has mutated to an unrecognizable Pop/Dance hybrid with only subtle traces of authentic Hip-Hop. It’s all about production, auto-tune, and a stuttered chorus. Can 50 Cent restore Hip-Hop’s integrity with his long-awaited fifth studio album? Only time will tell…

Still, read his plans after the jump and sound-off below.

Hot Shots: 50 Cents Flaunts $500k On Twitter

50 cent money Hot Shots: 50 Cents Flaunts $500k On Twitter

Undeterred by the backlash that greeted his last lavish showing, 50 Cent is still keen to show that he’s still making it rain – even if his career isn’t.

Taking to his trusty Twitter account, the rapper – real name Curtis Jackson – tweeted the shots of him and his green. Yet, this time, was keen to show that it wasn’t to make folk green with envy.

Of the money (which he says he won betting on Sunday’s 49′ers game), he wrote:

“Just watched a 500,000 dollar foot ball game get on my level, I’m giving this money to my nana she gonna faint LMAO all she do is go to the church”.

“Nana” or no nana, this is still all flavours of tacky. Yes, he’s rich, but clearly oh so poor in the confidence category. Indeed, who would have thought the man who – quite literally -had it “all” 5 years ago, wouldn’t be able to sell any records today; now forced to prove his worth by flashing his cash online?  How the mighty have fallen. Thud.

Your thoughts?

Hot Shots: 50 Cent Flaunts Stacks Of Cash In Vegas

50 cent  Hot Shots: 50 Cent Flaunts Stacks Of Cash In Vegas

50 Cent may have less than 50 fans left, yet one thing the rapper is keen to show he does have is money. And lots of it.

Taking to his trusty Twitter account (which has been the site of many a label rant as of late), the G-Unit general shared these humble shots with his followers.

Surrounded by stacks of cash, the former chart-topper (said to be worth over $250 Million) is believed to have taken the pics in his Las Vegas hotel room last night. He was in Sin City to promote his new headphone line at the Consumer Electronics Show.

Speaking of sins, the 36 year old was joined by boxer and woman-beater Floyd Mayweather. Mr Weather is on the way to jail for laying the smackdown on his baby’s mother – not, of course, before returning to the ring for a blockbuster showdown with Manny Pacquiao.

—————————————

Sam’s 2 Pence:

On a serious note, displays such as this are dually disgusting and embarrassing. It’s elementary mindsets such as 50′s which function to hold the Afro-diaspora back. Oh, and if there’s any doubt: yes, I went there.

How often do the Steve Jobs and Bill Gates’ of the world sit counting stacks and “making it rain”? The answer to which highlights a potent point. It’s always those who have the least, who stay claiming to have everything.

Of course, 50′s dripping green. Everyone knows that. Yet, the fact he has to flaunt what the masses already know he has, shows insecurity in other areas. One look at his record sales and all becomes apparent…
