50 Cent: "I Am The Biggest Rap Star"

Published: Tuesday 16th Sep 2008 by Sam
50 Cent: I Am The Biggest Rap StarDuring his recent promotional stop here in the UK, 50 Cent asserted his self-appointed spot as the ‘largest hip-hop touring artist in the world’, while also taking underhanded jabs at friend Eminem. Peep the report below via Contact Music:

Rapper 50 CENT has criticised Eminem for failing to travel the world to meet his fans.

The hip-hop star claims he is the biggest hip-hop touring artist in the world because Eminem refuses to go on tour.

He says, “I’m the largest hip-hop touring artist period. Eminem is the biggest rap artist on the planet, I’m the biggest touring artist because I travel places.

“He won’t actually go to each one of those territories to be in front of all his fans. Not that he doesn’t love them but he won’t make the sacrifice of travelling as hard as I do.”

Granted rappers tend to boast like there’s no tomorrow, it definitely seems like this is a case of there being a problem when you have to remind everyone of how relevant you are. Randomness: While I don’t have stats at hand, wouldn’t the title of biggest Hip-Hop touring act go to Jay-Z at this point? Correct me if wrong…

Your thoughts?

    Jay-z is huge around the world! The last concert in Stockholm packed 9000 jay-z fans in one hall. Jay is also big in touring! 50 Cent is just a selfish idiot.

    This dude has nothing better to due with his time than to run his mouth or to talk s*** about other rappers that are doing better than him,if he was as big of a rapper as he says he is would have to say it & he albums would actually be selling.

    This was the guy saying if he got beat by Kanye he would retire & he didn't

    Every he opens his mouth he show you just how stupid he is & how fame & money is going to that big-ass head of his

    OMG OMG OMG!!! Why do the authorities let ppl like him & Amy Winehouse run loose????? Hell, leave Amy on the streets, at least she still entertains ppl from her drug holes. LOCK 50 AWAY and please gimme the key so that i can swallow it and let it run its course through the sewer systems. I CAN'T STAND 50! He is as relevant as the corn in my bowels that won't digest. I really wish he would decide to be the first rapper to pay to go into space and that he gets lost out there or something cuz I'm honestly sick of seeing & hearing of him. Hip hop has come such a long way from the violent times of the past. He represents the de-evolution of the Hip Hop community and will continue to hold it back as long as he is involved. Let's hope he does like Will Smith and just go into acting so that he only drops an album once a decade. I mean, I love Will Smith & his o-so-s*** ass but that's what I want 50 to do…

    No correction needed!

    50 is wack and every real hiphop fan knows that, he drop one hot album and never could live up to hype afterwards. The reason why he tours overseas because no one here in the US is going to go to any of his shows over here. Hell you can tell that from that crapping G Unit album that he drop and no one bought

  20. SG3 September 16, 2008

    50 is irrelevant these days, and by his latest rants his starting to realize it. First making fun of Kanye’s single. Question: When have you ever dropped anything or created anything that was groundbreaking, not neva! Didn’t dude say he was retiring? I mean, let the music speak for itself and I believe it did with G-unit’s latest album. Your time is over and if he wants to change that he need to go back to the lab and create some stuff there instead of running his damn mouth about other artist.
