Who is the kid he's talking about?
Without the street aspect of his story ,he would be a nobody
Probably the one he was moving around with some years back that kinda looked like him...the one he was boxing with on the video and hitting a little too hard
His background is a major factor to him being who and where he is today.
I GOT SHOT 9 TIMES!
I agree…. Celebrate life playa
The streets didn't write those hooks.
The streets didn't make "In Da Club" a smash hit.
His gangsta/street persona is what made him a star, not those songs.
I would have say it's 50/50 on the streets helping him...without the street shyt to pull from he would have been less interesting to the labels and mainstream america...
Without the street side to keep people engaged, he’d be Flo Rida at best, making some hit records (and still getting paid) but nobody giving a fukk who he is, which means it wouldn’t have led to the movies and investments and other endeavors he got into.
He's not talking about Chief Keef.
50 had music opportunities taken away from him because of his connections to the streets. He had a whole album full of street shyt that got shelved after he got shot.
Then he came back with a bunch of fire mixtapes that's how he got hot.
So much stupidity in this thread.
Without great records (be them collaborative or your own) you're nothing in the music biz (as an artist).
You don't have to be authenticly street to sell records, despite 50 being a more street artist.
Many artist sold records before and after 50
Without being a certified street nikka.
