Curtis: “I Actually Flopped”

curtis-sad-face

I honestly wasn’t even gonna say anything about these horrible numbers that BISD is expected to put up, and I know he spoke on it in that Flex interview, but this quote he gave Meka for BET is hilarity:

“Well, the reports from Hits Daily Double,  I don’t actually know what to anticipate from the actual sales of this project,” 50 told BET. “It’s obvious, the project just came out a month earlier than what was actually anticipated.”

“The actual project is arguably my best work, to have the general public respond the way they’ve responded to it,” 50 continued. “I haven’t heard anything negative about my choices artistically, so if I was in the space where I absolutely needed finances from the actual sales of the record, it might mean something, but if it offers the material that I can go out and perform and make everyone enjoy themselves as much as I enjoyed myself making it, Ill be happy with it.”

What the!? Is “actual” the new “aggressive content”? Ninja, you actually didn’t sell any records and I believe that is actually referred to as an actual flop.

Be clear: I don’t give a fuck what Curtis sold. Some of my favorite rappers dropped albums this year that didn’t crack 100K, and I honestly think BISD is pretty decent, all things considered. And what the fuck does Curtis care, like he said, he’s rich anyway. It’s just hilarious to me to see somebody who has put so much stock in album sales and commercial performance rather than quality for so long, go quadruple styrofoam.

I might actually go back to calling him 50 Cent now.

    Drake > Jay Elec

    ^ THIS IS BLASPHEMY!

    ^

    THIS IS TRUTH.

    Jay Elec will never reach the heights Drake is gonna reach, or reach the same numbers in sales.

    Drake is like the rookie LeBron of rap, and Jay Elec is like Chris Bosh.

    ^ Yeah, great. Drake sells a lot of numbers. In reality though some rappers wouldn’t be giving a fuck about record sales as long as they know their music is good especially if fans give them good responses. Them shits today are usually the albums that are praised by critics.

    IMO most of J.E stuff has been really great. Drake is good but J.E seems to be more entertaining lyrically.

    Exhibit C > Most rap songs today

    ^ word, I challege anyone to make reference to any post where I used record sales to make a point… Shits disgusting B.

  9. why? Says:

    I wouldn’t say the album flopped. Despite records sales expected to be lower than usual it seems like BISD did somewhat better than Curtis critically and it kind of reminded people of his first two albums. But also he should’ve known his shit was gonna sell low especially cuz of all his shit talking and people looking at him like a villain.

    Seriously though he should quit if he sells lower than Officer Ricky’s DTP 158,000 first week sales.

    but like you said, at the end of the day 50 doesnt need sales its just because he talks so much about it that this will be seen as a flop.

    If it was anyone else, people would be saying those were decent numbers but thats all 50’s fault.

  26. el feces loco Says:

    *daps cOLD blooded*

    50 album leaked and he didnt move it up or rush to add new songs or change the album cover..no dumb shit..he just took that shit like a G..fuck it. The people love the music so he cool with that..If it didnt leak yall know it would have done much better.

  39. el feces loco Says:

    I wonder if they keep a record of downloads and what that would mean in terms of actual sales.. like say 10 downloads would equal one record purchase(guessing or using complex formulas and figures).

    A rapper or his label would then be able to see or guess how much they lost from illegal downloads.

    If you got downloaded 10,000 times then they would be able to put a number on how many actual sales you missed out on.

    I’m sure BISD has been downloaded more than a million times since its leak..Drake a much lesser artist sold 60k of an album that was downloaded more than 2 million times..those numbers seem skewed to me.

    Could we use Drake and 50 as barometers to judge future leaks and how it applies to record sales after?

    >>THIS! I actually don’t enjoy Fif’s music. The space he presents the actual projects in and the aggressive content just doesn’t sound good to me. His actual admission does make this less humiliating, though. He is just contradicting his whole career. I’m just glad this finally happened to shut the ring leader of sales over content the fuck up

    like the Center Edge Territory shit, and everything that’s going on at Dame’s “DD172″… having different artists cross each other paths and just come together to make some songs. that type of stuff is dope to me.

    if 50’s album doesnt leak and comes out on release date without EVERYONE hearing it…it sells 350-400 K.

    but when this album leaked fuckin everyone downloaded it.the way you are able to see the results are downloads anyway.

    how many people downloaded this album? If you compare it with the other 09 albums I’m sure it is right there near the top

    you panzies couldnt wait to see 50 cent do average numbers. lol. but he still won because its a good album

    >>false…no one really cared about numbers until boo boo started popping off about sales. challenging niggas to sales battles and getting his ass handed to him by a gay fish. now, he’s in the same sales boats as ppl he had jokes for. that pill is hard to swallow for him (yes homo).

    50 Cent made this album for you guys y’know. He coulda made the same shit he made on Curtis and sold 500 guaranteed., Instead he made a cd about killing people just to satisfy people that are talkin shit. Problem: those people don’t actually buy albums, and they sure as hell download a one month old leak. Thats his fault. If you want money, you gotta play the market.

    Yall still flipfloppin tho.

  101. Mag Says:

    with those sales goes anyone ever getting a straight Rap album from say… Fabolous, Jeezy, Gucci…..?

    Eskay is right, his actions fit his punishment. Even if having your album leak and posted on ent. blogs a whole month before release.

    where we wrong to push for a Hardcore album from dude?

  102. yakse Says:

    @eskay

    see this is why niggas dont respect the blogging community…
    eskay, whats your problem kid?
    Why you got the most to say when its about 50?
    …talkin all that shit…you know you wouldnt say none of that shit to the nigga face…so relax…
    alright…so fuckin what his shit didnt sell and you already know he dont NEED the money…whats your point by sayin all that extra shit?
    cause you know you cant get regulated? geez…
    niggas kill me who they think they “goin in” on 50…ONLINE…and you aint sayin sh*t for real…you just wanna let it be known you dont like him..

    why dont you just post his shit and dont type shit like you do with all these new age homo ass rappers you keep tryin to push everyday…
    You ALWAYS type a book when 50 got a new post, its always YOU posting it…get off that nigga dick man…proud cause he “failed”…
    ALOT of niggas dont like “curtis”…alright already hes the rapper to hate, we get it…let niggas figure out how many times he say aggressive or actual on their own…

    I’d LOVE to see you INTERVIEW 50 ON NAHRIGHT…nigga I’d western union a stack to your ass if you did it…
    Then kick all the “curtis” shit in his face..gettin all excited and shit…
    I betchu he slap the breath out your faggot ass…you too pumped up about it! better yet, interview a nigga on the street or something talkin down to him about thug shit or whatever else your scared of…you claim you from NYC…nigga do ANYTHING but hiding out talkin tough about shit…
    step out there and get noticed 1 time…watch what happens to you…cause nobody knows you like that…you and your legion of herbs that follow you…
    fuck 50 for the record, I just had to tell you to eat a dick my nigga word up…you are the epitomy of these new age niggas who lack nuts to do anything but hide on the internet and talk shit about cats they really admire…
    You actually pioneered all this corny shit…salute…

    well, a lot of people criticized the ‘curtis’ record, so when BISD leaked and it got almost universal acclaim online, it should have *helped* him with word of mouth. the thing is, 50 has been making the same type of ‘aggressive content’ over and over again. say what you will about jay, american gangster doesn’t sound like kingdom come which doesn’t sound like volume 3. dude changed it up. stillmatic doesn’t sound like i am which doesn’t sound like hip-hop is dead. 50 can’t switch it up, so he was bound to lose sales eventually. you can’t sell the same album to the same fanbase four times. i will say that curtis was sort of a change from the first two, for the worst though (word to ayo technology)

  107. YeaLeft Says:

    Eskay really needs to grow up. This guy is over 30 years old and feels the need to pop shit as if 50 did something to him personally. Grow up dude, you and 50 are the same age, only he is a millionaire gettin his karma and you own a blog, be happy.

    I expect this kinda stuff from your kids Dre and Nation.

    Eh, this one is a lot grimier than Massacre.

    ^ ^ true indeed, but sales-wise he would have been better off going with his initial plan to make BISD his introspective album. he pulled a nas and switched the plan at the last minute. i personally think his introspective verse on game’s ‘hate or love it’ is the GOAT 50 verse. ‘went outside and they done took my bike’

  111. jermaine Says:

    The album is hot so that all that matters to me. I would only care about album sales if i was seeing some of the money. As a consumer i’m happy with the album.

    BUT EVERYBODY had that No Ceilings

  113. Ted DiBiase Says:

    I think everyone is tired of album sale talk, for once in a long time this guys material is better than his sh*t talking, sadly it prolly won’t be noticed because all the lames wanna throw the low-album sales in this guys face, yall a bunch of Rick Rauces eating apple sauces, Bawse.

  114. Mark Says:

    50 is spitting better than average on BISD but I dont know what he was thinking when he picked such average sounding beats.

  116. sashaj Says:

    I liked BISD and it is sad that it had to leak a month before because his sales would be higher fosssho…but with that said an artist like 50 Cent should be able to sell under any condition and this is obviously a sign of his downward fall…I’m also a huge Lil Wayne fan and I am anticipating to see his numbers when Rebirth comes out…We all know Rebirth won’t be so good but it will be a sign to tell us of who runs this shit now.

    i hate that everyone thinks 50 is some bizness man, dude bought into vitamin water cheap COKE the actual company with cash bought that to compete with PEPSI who owns GATORADE, thats it, he got one lucky deal, he didn’t negotiate a sale there (moreover he lucky powerade sucks). Yeah he got stacks from that, but what else? everything else is now FAILING (go get you g-unit clothing/g-unit shoes ect)! check this out van wilder invested in mp3s in the early 00s and made more than 50 now married to scarlett j. but nobody looks at him like man when is van wilder’s 50th law book coming out.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    No, these other artist don’t go around talking about other people’s sales. 50 has measured success and status based on sales. Real hip hop niggas don’t care about sales. Do you think KRS cares if he doesn’t go platinum? No because he is all about the culture and hip hop was abused by corpoate America. Therefore, if it takes sagging sales for corporate America to leave hip hop to the streets, then so be it. None of these niggas sales benefit me anyway.

    LOL… that dude up there went in on eskay…DAMN SON

  131. QU ALL DAY Says:

    Plain and Simple… 50 is really the last of real aggressive RAP… We are about to enter a new 10 year ERA at the beginning of 2010…

    Aggressive Rap is about to be pushed to aside and this “alternative”, “sweet/tight jeans” shit is about to take over..

    All of the “Aggressive/Punch you in the Face” rappers are either dead or no longer around from PAC, to Biggie to you name it… 50 is the last of the Aggressive Rap…

    Just look at the kids everyday on the train here in NYC during rush hour, they all wear tighter jeans than my bitch does… That tells you for sure the new era is swaying to the “alternative, sweet/tight jeans”, str9 pop mode – The Weezies, Drakes, Kanye’s, etc, etc,”

    I’m 28 yrs old here in Queens and its a real terrible thing to see the kids look like they do now adays on the train and street everday but hey what can you do? 50 and Raekwon was the last of the Aggressive albums….

    Raekwon’s album also did bad and that album was completely aggressive and was definitely hot.. but no one bought it.. That new tight jean crowd is not buying that Aggressive content…

    Only Built Cuban Linx Part 2 only did 132,000 units since Summer 09!! That shows you right there no one is buying the aggressive content anymore… The Aggressive content fans are downloaded that shit for free online now or getting copies from someone…

    Check Rae’s numbers..

    “The album debuted at number 4 on the Billboard 200 and at number 2 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, while selling near 68,000 copies in its first week. Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… Pt. II received universal acclaim from music critics, based on an aggregate score of 89/100 from Metacritic. The album sold 132,000 copies in the United States as of November 12, 2009, according to SoundScan.[11]”
    Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Only_Built_4_Cuban_Linx%E2%80%A6_Pt._II

    This is the main reason why Jay Z came up with an entire POP album on BP3 cuz it was for that new young tighter jean/sweet crowd…It wasn’t really no Aggressive contact on BP3.. Maybe “DOA” but not really.. Not the original Aggressive JayZ from the Reasonable Doubt days and Jay pulled 600,000 units first week cuz that new non-aggressive/tight jean/college boy, non-hood crowd is buying that shit… Why didn’t JayZ bring Beanie Siegal back? Cuz Beanie is too aggressive for the new young crowd, why did Jay sign J Cole? Cuz he has non-aggressive contact perfect for the new young crowd..

    50’s crowd and the old “Punch you in the face” rappers, niggas starving from the Projects with Timberlands on (Biggie, PAC, Mobb Deep), etc, etc are no longer getting purchased on the POP stage anymore, 50s new album for sure is his best work since Get Rich or Die Trying and even with all the promotion, etc, etc, he won’t pull off 1 million the first week… Nah, them dayz are over for that Aggressive crowd…

    I’m from Queens and watched the game from the Juice Crew dayz to 50 and 50 is still my favorite rapper as he is the only one still on that Punch You in the Face rap calling “phony” people out to the world to see, holding nothing back.. Thats the 90s way of thinking, how I was brought up in Astoria… but them dayz are literally getting pushed to a aside… and the new non-aggressive/alternative rap content is definitely starting to take over.

    Once 50 leaves the game, all current rappers in the game with have a “sigh” of relief as 50 is the last rapper of this time to be that aggressive….

    With all that said, 50 did fuck up like Eskay said in the beginning… Even though he went 400 million of whatver the fuck he is worth now, he should of stop bringing up “numbers” after the Kanye feud should of been the last time he rated good albums on “how many sales”…. Then everyone would have just took Before I Self Destruct as a great album and wouldn’t even blast him about “numbers” like Eskay did. I can’t knock Eskay for that.. 50 brought this on himself as one day this “how many sales” you got shit would be over and it would eventually have to go back to “if you have a good album it is a good album, fuck sales”……

    Guess we’ll see the final “numbers” on BISD come Monday morning…SMFH

  134. K'lajh Says:

    I’m not even a 50 fan like that but BISD is crack as far as I heard so far!! At the point he is at in his career it is better to put out a hot album that doesn’t sell that well, than to put out a wack joint like his last one that even does decent numbers. At least he keeps his fanbase satisfied while getting new fans and he will def sell out shows. IMO its a win for 50. LMOA @ quadruple styrofoam!!

  135. spirit equality Says:

  137. QU ALL DAY Says:

    ….and further to my point from earlier, look how Interscope did the kid. Someone at interscope wanted the kid 50 to lose big this time probably due to him screaming on the boss Jimmy Iovine all the time.. LOL.. Fucked up but they definitely played a part in leaking his album 1 month prior globally.. I know I was able to download the entire album like 3 weeks ago… Fucked up world yo but its a doggy dog world out this bitch…LOL

    Guess this shit will be the kid 50 back to earth with everyone else and just focus on making good music and he should come out and make a statement like you know what “after this album and how interscope did me, fuck all album sales going forward, a good album is a fuckin good album”… and just leave it at that..

    Yo dog you sound pretty angry.. The point im saying is that alot of ppl have multiple copies of CDs and Albums some people collect Albums and dont open them some people buy it for the art it comes with. I know plenty of people who have more then one copy or download and then buy the real thing. Some people do it to hear the album before they waste money on it. and it takes about 3 to 5 minutes to download a CD and if you can multitask then your not really wasting time. And you can not compare a sweater with a CD…smh Now thats the DUMBEST SHIT I HAVE READ ALL DAY…smh… Thats like downloading leaks from this website.. so what if you got a couple or almost all the tracks if you are a true fan and support the artist your gonna buy the CD.. Just like the Cater III it got leaked heavy and still sold a whole lot.. Like I said If you got real friends they will buy your music no matter if they have it in there HardDrive..

    come on man

  147. KNOCKOUT Says:

    say what you want but 50 always talkion about how others dont sell……..so to come out swingin with 150K lmao is horrible guess he should have retired after Kanye washed his ass!!!!

    KP is the dumbest blogger on here!!!!!

  148. Jay Monee Says:

    Ok why is it when anybody makes a record and they flop, 50 makes front of them. It was always record sales and now when his album dont do good we should fell sorry for him. Jay-z put his whole effort to create Blueprint 3 and he didnt have to spark no beef and talk about the same shit that 50 talking and still went platinum so BISD record sales should be bought up and laughed at. I laugh at triple C’s record sales and so 50 should get the same laugh too. It’s called Karma motherfuckers. Look at the bright side, 50 Cent is a smart businessman and he has something to fall back on. The Game could be next or Dr. Dre could even get it. Point blank we need to bring back when hip hop was hip hop. 50 got 2 losses now. Kanye West killed him with Graduation and The CarterIII made him put his foot in his mouth. It’s a fact. G-Unit was killed with a Ether and it was called 300 Bars and Runnin’ . So let’s all cry for 50’s record sales please because it’s bigger than triple C and Fat Joe flopping.

    then ran a plane into that building and when that building fell
    ran to the crash site with no mask and inhaled, toxins deep inside they lungs
    until both of em was filled, blew cloud out like an L, to a Jordan to a smell,

That’s not a diss, either — I like Wale a lot, and ML’s been tracking his career since 100 Miles & Running back in ’07. In fact, the only reason I don’t have a physical copy of Attention Deficit nearby as I type (I had to resort to iTunes) is because I couldn’t find one on any Best Buy store shelves — though, for whatever it’s worth, the Best Buy employee who told me that they didn’t have any copies also told me that it was dope (I should’ve asked him where he copped his copy).
