“It was a blockbuster that I lit, and it didn’t explode. I felt like it should have went a lot further than the results I received … Publicly, I feel that 50 Cent fans don’t believe it was a dud. It did have ‘I Get Money,’ it did have ‘Ayo Technology,’ ‘I’ll Still Kill,’ ‘Follow My Lead’ with Robin Thicke. These records were hit records, but the timing they came out was wrong. If the first record you heard off Curtis was ‘I Get Money,’ it would have shifted more millions in sales.”
Granted 50 can be overly egotistical a lot of the time, I actually agree with some of what he’s saying. While I don’t look at ‘Curtis’ as any kind of ‘blockbuster’, I do feel things may have gone differently had the single choices been better. I guess he won’t be so fast as to run his mouth next time around…then again, it is 50.
