    50 cent is only creating a negative image for all black men. The lifes that people live are only their realities because they chose that way of life. Our men do not have portray themselves as gangstas and what not and he is putting that that image out there through those stories he plans on writing. He calls himself a hustler so where ever the money is that's where he'll be.

    It's sad that he selling him self short , portraying a gritty negative tale
    to feed young men this how it should be , it will be the teaching that our
    children don't buy into this and let his book stay on the shelf, we know that
    won't happen just another page in our struggle.........

    Rich, Don't you agree that the only way to get rid of this "stuff" would be to destroy the root of it? Where it was rooted out of?

    i agree with Cedric.....whut 50 is doing isnt new.....hes just gettin rich off his story and his marketing schemes..i cant knock him at all...but i do see how the type of image hes portraying isnt anything completely positive or negative...its a lil bit a both....positive cause hes a smart entrepeneur....negative because of his past and the life he portrayz....

    i aint gonna get into it anymore than that,but yeah,...

    holla

    It is like pouring fresh milk into a glass of sour milk, hoping that it would taste better in doing so. Not only are you hoping it tastes better, but you are also trying to be healthy with a little bit of unhealthy drinking. In order to rebuild the minds of our youth, you must get rid of ALL the garbage, not push it to the side, and try to rebuild.

    Thank you brotha - but ALL my credit goes to the Lord!

    However, I understand.

    When you cut off what crap music is rooted in, you don't have to worry about the music being produced. You take down something by starting at the root.
