50 Cent: "Nas Is Finished"

Published: Thursday 4th Dec 2008 by Sam
50 Cent: 'Nas Is Finished' Seemingly ignoring the fact that his own career is at a low, 50 Cent takes aim at Nas in the latest issue of XXL magazine. Here’s what the G-Unit general had to say:

“Man, Nas is cold as ice. Nas is the block of ice that sunk the Titanic… I think he’s at one of those points to where his career’s finished, to be honest. He’s had some great moments and made good music in the past, but he no longer has the interest of the general public or myself.” {Source}

Ol’ Curtis just doesn’t know when not to speak. With G-Unit’s last album ‘TOS: Terminate On Site’ belly flopping down the charts and 50’s own new album being pushed back due to low interest, he’s hardly one to talk about anyone else. Most especially a man (Nas), who irrespective of sales, continues to achieve critical acclaim and is still held in high regard within the Hip-Hop community. If there were a ever a time 50 needed to fall back, this is it. SMH.

    I agree with you Sam. Yes, Nas career has stalled. However, 50-cent career is not soaring either. I wish he would just make good music and stop making negative comments about other artists. Every time he is trying to promote a new project, he tries to belittle or put down another artist. He needs to find another method to promoting his project, because it is getting old. I like some of 50-cent music. I think that he does not have to go that route to promote his music.

    first of f***** all nas can never be wack “make the world go round” is the ringtone right now!!! he is a lyricist living in a time where people like wack s*** case in point fifty cent and even his time is nearing the end!!! fif better shut that s*** up,damn everybody on ye case they need to tell this n**** to sit down somewhere….granted i like some of fifs music and his first album was his best ever but he is in NO position to talk s*** about nas,someone who still has die hard fans….i am so offended right now….more offended that the first commenter called nas wack…but thats their opinion no matter how lowsy it is.Nas is the truth and any rapper thats got some real s*** to say is underrated just like he is…YET he is still nominated for a couple of grammys so fif can eat on that s***

    50 is one lame ass MoFo but now everyone who reads vibe or comes to this site just had that verified LOL…how is he gonna say that about NAS!?!?

    I agree with Tia, Nas could NEVER be wack…hes wack to 50 because hes a TRUE artist and didn’t have to downtalk anyone to gain credibility and popularity.

    I think Nas’s latest album was HOT…why is it that when an album doesn’t surpass a certain ammount, its automatically wack? If you listen to Solange’s album she has some hot songs on there too…it only 45,000 copies or so but who cares, if its hot its hot!

    I can’t wait until 50’s album flops..AGAIN!

    50 and g-unit are officially DONE!

    I hope he knows that talking s*** about other artists will not boost his sales. Maybe back in 2003 when he put out that The Massacre garbage, but nobody gives a damn about you anymore Curtis. It’s a recession here in the states and if I was him, I would be trying to keep money in bank account and a roof over my head and stop worrying about what Nas and other people are doing. Get yourself some business Curtis!

    Wow, this is coming from the mouth of someone im no longer interested in listening too. I always wondered what this dude and kanye had in common, and it aint first week album sales, cos we all know kanye beat his ass, but they BOTH talk wayyyyyy to much, Didnt nobody ask him about nas, didnt nobody ask kanye about what he thinks of beyonce’s career, but still they feel the need to spread more and more of that bitchassness. Damn, i know kanye gone a lil crazy with everything thats happened to him, but 50 needs to shut it up, nobody is listening. he needs to G-G-G-G-GO home with all that mess

    50 is a f****** joke, Nas’ new album has reached new heights that 50 is too ignorant and stupid to even understand. His lyrics on this album are more mature and relevant to the REAL s*** going on that’s effecting the GENERAL PUBLIC. It’s a mother f****** recession, how many people in the GENERAL PUBLIC can relate to 50’s rhymes which all focus on money, b******, and power? F*** this dude, Nas kept it real with his new album, trying to connect the youth to what’s going on in the big picture. F*** 50 and his b**** ass G-unit records. Nas needs to ether this dudes ass and show him who the f*** he’s talking to. Can’t nobody match the lyrical complexity and metaphorical meaning to Nas’ albums. This dude needs to hurry up and get his jaw broke so he doesn’t spit this stupid s*** anymore. F*** 50.

    What is 50 talking about? Nas has never been a big selling rapper like 50 so the fact that “Hip Hop is Dead” and “Untitled” were still able to sell gold without hit singles really says a lot. So exactly how has he fallen off? LOL. Everybody doesn’t care about catchy tunes and chart topping hits that’s why Nas has a steady fan base and is still able to sell over 500,000 records regardless. 50 needs to be more concerned with finding a hit, because he doesn’t have the same type of fans Nas has. 50’s fans will continue to abandon him if and will eventually be gone completely he doesn’t deliver a hit album soon. He’s the only who has actually fallen off. He always has to diss another artist just to get a buzz going and it never works. I see he didn’t keep his promise either. He was supposed to retire once Kanye beat him last year in sales.

    You didn’t comment on the fact Nas did a line about 50 cent and that 50 didn’t even fire back at it.. 50s so over.

    50 Shut da F*ck Up!!!

  25. Rashid December 6, 2008

    I think the person that got it best was the dude up there somewhere that said 50 is pulling a publicity stunt, same way he got his career started beefin’ with Ja, now he wants to restart it by beefing with Nas. Problem is Nas is 10 times the rapper Ja is, and 20 times what Curtis Jackson is. But that is all upto peoples personal opinion. What is not opinion however is that this truly is a publicity stunt.

    F*** this untalented, idiotic clown, 5-0 has the nerve to say that nas’s career is over, b******* if you think that nas’s career is finished.

    5-0 is one of the worst rappers to come out of the industry, he has completely destroyed NY Rap to the fullest, it makes me ashamed
