You 50 cent stans are something else
I remember 50 saying this in one of them old ass interviews. Apparently the same thing was happening on the joint with DMX and Jay-z, Jay-z wanted to be the closer for ego-purposes most likely but when DMX would come out before him and finish his set a lot of the crowd would bounce with him.
Then jay went to sell out stadiums while 50….
Title of thread adds up. On the heels of his success, 50 was added as the opening act of a Roc-a-fella tour that year.
His music was red hot, so many people bought tickets just to see G-unit.
I was at a Hard Knocks Life tour and DMX went on before Jay. Let’s just say that was a very bad decision for Jay
Jay speaks on it…
Is pretty much running Starz giving fans what they want. While Jay is in pretentious jewelry commercials with his wife(who obviously runs him)
Were you were around in 03-04? These things happen when you strike lightning in a bottle. Bobby B went from New Edition’s opening act to the closer in a matter of months. Few Mothafukkas in life ever get that hot
jay z always been a B+ player who was never the top draw he just lasted longer than his peers because he played the game better, Triple H of rap
“The reason why we leading the pack;
This is marathon, you started off fast, now you wheezing in the back”
but i believe this. 50 was too much of a sensation in 2003
In the 03 it was the changing of the guard ala avon and marlo
There's rappers at their peak who put up better numbers and were hotter than Jay-z, but they fizzled out.
If you think 50 is running stars
You highlight the one good thing 50 has done post music career and skip all the great things Jay has done. You a clown.
This post was about music, Jay when on to sell out stadiums, he did a stadium tour with 50s boss, where 50 was merely a “guest”
Side note: It's crazy how white nerds have took such a strong control of Hip-Hop and Sports media.
Who did they take it from and when?
"50 cent is coming!"
not hard to imagine for anyone of age at the time.
