Curtis = Public Enemy #1

Curtis

At least in the Black community:

On a list of 14 African American newsmakers tested in a recent Pew survey of racial attitudes gangsta rapper 50 Cent earned the distinction of being the only newsmaker tested who is identified by a plurality of blacks (42%) as a "bad influence;" unlike his fellow rapper Kanye West, whose more mainstream rap style broadens his appeal, 50 Cent (né Curtis James Jackson III) is rated a good influence by only 17% among the African American community. While those with a high school education or less, or with less than $50,000 in family income, are somewhat more likely to view his influence positively, only 22% and 19% among these groups do so respectively. And, even excluding those who are unable to rate them, while younger African Americans (under age 40) are more likely to give a thumbs up to West, as well as to rap producer Russell Simmons, they are also significantly more likely to deem 50 Cent a bad influence on the black community than are older blacks (48% vs. 37%).

Curtis loves this type of shit. Expect him to cite this survey and mumble something about "agressive content" in his next interview.

    LOL at Mega Stans. The nigga is a fucking generic rapping bum. If you were a nas weed carrier you automatically lost. lol. Mega has always been irrelevant. 80% of people haven’t even listened to his albums. He’s like a mixtape rapper that never made it

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    So that’s your reasoning for him being wack?
    Cause he never ‘made it’?

    BIG L never ‘made it’ either………..

    I thought it wasn’t about “making it” or “sales” or “relevanance” or “certain people listening to you” with you. I thought it was just about the music for you

    so why you using that against him in saying he’s a bum…
    your whole argument against Mega doesn’t count….

    just pure hate……you said nothing about him musically…

    NAS rapped about the life Mega lived………..

    ^HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHa

    I swear this nigga paperslacker is the ultimate hater on nah right, charlie murphy charactor on Dave Cappelle’s “Haters Ball” skit was based around paperslacker. And he got owned by 2x, lol.

    what a stupid ass survey… there are way worse people in the world with Power and Money. 50 cent is just entertainment.

  12. spotrusherz Says:

    if 50 is so much of a bad influence, then maybe parents in the black community should start pointing their fingers at themselves. artists are entitled to artistic freedom and have no responsibity whatsoever to replace the lack of parenting in poor communities.

  13. Digital scales Says:

    on nah right, instead of saying ”nobody” and ”everybody” ya should speak for ya motherfucking selves, that everybody shit is wack, cause you dont know how everybody feel, this go for all you niggas making comments acting like you the alex tribec of hiphop…

  14. jay Says:

    eskay good looks on staying on 50 for that aggressive content mantra of his. does he even know that he’s a pop tart? i mean really, does he know?

    I see 50 as a smart business man not as a bad influence……look at all the things he’s doing to make money…….parents that don’t teach they’re kid right from wrong are bad influence…..

    50 prolly was a bad influence to children like 5 years ago, but now, naw. Everytime you see him he’s smiling, unlike back around GRODT days where you would see him rocking a vest over the G-Unit bra, in this day & age truth be told, lil wayne is more of a bad influence than 50, all a kid have to do is youtube lil wayne (pause) & you can see him either drinking easter pink sprite, smoking weed, doing gay dances on stage & throwing heavy leather jackets @ DJ’s faces. 50 is one of the only rappers that don’t rap about doing drugs, how can he be a bad inflence with songs like “Ayo techno”? SMH

    look at you bitches, yall diss 50 for making commercial songs on his album,but you nerds must not have access to mixtapes and thats why yall say he’s pop.lol
    eskay just between us, i know you know both sides but you chose to hate in order to stir up your loyal fans on this blog.i find it so funny to see how easy it is to start a cult when you have ignorant ppl who are clueless.
    “aggressive content” you already know the truth so you try to down play it with sarcasm.lol
    eskay i must tip my hat to you , but for all your soldiers they aint no better than tony yayo, actually tony is way better because he is a rich loyal soldier or you haters would say dickrider.
    soon hiphop will be only kanye type shit and no hardcore content, atleast 50 packages hardcore along with the commercial shit, now rapper wont even be able to do that, its gonna pop or no sale.then what yall gonna say, yall hate 50 so yall supported kanye, now the hardcore genre will suffer in the business of selling music.hiphop is in trouble right now and most niggas cant make kanye type shit, this is why we see so much akon and t-pain combo, only way to sell or get airplay.you ignorant eskay soldiers need to wake up adn look pass the g-unit hate.g-unit is hiphop!

    ^Naw, if a nigga not attracted to a ho, then that aint hating, but going out your way to say a woman is ugly is. Some people hate on bitches because of there over exposer i:e Beyonce, now any man with 2 eyes should know that Bey is a dino, or close to it, but you’ll hear niggas say “Man fuck that bitch, her ass is flat, or she only look good with make up on, she prolly stuck up in real life” shit like that, what part of the game is that? She might not be your cup of tea, but to say things like fantashia > beyonce, come on fam, let’s be real. I aint gonna say no names but a veteran NR poster said some shit like Khia > Beyonce, WTF? If that aint hating then…..

    you cats are funny. trying to act like music and movies dont influence or have an effect on the listener or viewer. if you can point out positive influences wouldnt there be negative influences as well ?

    this article is still bs though. Russell Simmons is the most negative influence ever in black music. thta nigger made BILLIONS perpetrating the negative stereotypes about black men so he could package it to white kids. creating onyx ? Fact: those dudes were party rappers. dropping public enemy for chrissake ! and believe me the list gets longer.

  38. landLORD Says:

    … the same niggas calling random broads ugly for no reason, be the ones that dont see no parts of the pussy … Prancer is fine … Gravy is fine … Rayna was the most finest … the big dark skinned bald headed chick with the big ass hips was fine (since eliminated) … Myamee is fine … Hotlanta is sexy … BX could get it … etc, etc …

    … Flavor Flav got the best gig in America … that aint coonery, thats pimpery … how did THIS brother of ALL people, parlay his weed and crack carrying in to such a lucrative and pleasurable venture ? …

If that aint hating then…..

    ^I think that it is unfair to place one person’s preference over another. Lets call a spade a spade because we know that you’re referring to landLORD. I agree that money has a taste in women that isn’t popular with the masses (on the low, I’d smash all the chicks he named), but on whom’s scale is that being measured? I’m not here to defend Land because he is his own person, but I do agree that we often want people to suscribe to general ideology of what’s attractive and what’s not. To counter your arguement, how does one perceive beauty to be great if it’s being masked by something not natural, i.e. makeup? I made a blog about this that was posted on Duepayer and my Myspace blog. I wouldn’t place Fantasia about Beyonce either, but that’s just MY preference. However, I can name a dozen other chicks that are just as popular that no one would consider “better looking.”

    Since we’re on this road, lets be honest: Beyonce, along with many other pop females that the corporations push on us, is just another lightskinned, weave-rockin’, makeup-masked female that is supposed to be the idol of young Black girls. Regardless of the lack of parenting that comes with this stigma, the overall PURPOSE of them (corporate Amerikkka) doing so is to sell to us (and whites) what Black beauty is supposed to look like. Now we have hundreds of thousands of Nubian women who spend millions (collectively) a year to cover up their faces, hide their blemishes, and be ashamed of what they are NATURALLY. I’ve seen Beyonce “unmasked”, and honestly… NOT IMPRESSED. There are Black women who attend my school who wear little to no makeup (because they’re at school so much) who make Beyonce look like the average white-washed chick that she is. We need to stop the idolatry and just let it be. This heffa got a team of people that she pay THOUSANDS of dollars annually to make her look like that: hair stylists, makeup artists, designers, etc. Hell, if the average 9-to-5 Black woman had that kind of access to those people they’d look like that too… and probably 10x “better”, IF… that’s what you deem as “better looking.”

    To bring it back into perspective, as a man… yeah, I’d hit Beyonce. All of us wood. In a back alley. In December. With our pants around our ankles. In the day time. And sunglasses on…

    But we NEED to get rid of this false perception of what beauty is and dig deeper into ourselves and realize that many of those who worship trophies probably got their own insecurities.

    50’s a bad influence because everybody in the world knows who he is, white, black, asian. Even peoples parents and grandparents, so hes an easy target. Thats a bullshit survey

    @Billz

    I can co-sign everything you said, cause it’s the truth, the machine does force feed there creations on us, & that was what I was tryna speack on, when something keeps getting hyped up, from rap artist, to movies, to a women looks, you tend to build youself up to hear, or see the greatest thing since sliced bread, your expectation are so high that when you finally do see it, your dissapointed, but does that still take away from the overall package? Now, when people (myself included) see or hear something everywhere they go they get tired of it, that ultimatly grows into hatred towards it, well maybe not full blown hate, but you get tired of it, & in due time you’ll turn away from what the masses praise. Everybody like the Bulls back in the day, but it was always that one dude in that lil ass corner like “fuck jordan, he aint that nice” knowing he’s lying to himself, but he hates it because everyone loves it, that’s the only point I was tryna make, if beyonce wasn’t on TV wasn’t a star & wasn’t adored by millions, I would still look at her the same way, some might not, but hey, there followers so there opinion never counts anyway. Flatout, most people hate, what the masses love, (Keyword) “most”

    Prancer > Beyonce

    & I’ll threw a cali blood block rocking a smurf outfit, 78 bandanas, a fuck whoevers a blood fitted & crip walk the whole trip for a crack at beyonce, but right now, I feel prancer > Beyonce
