    I heard a few days ago that 50 Cent was the only other artist other than the Beatles (many years ago) that had four singles in the top ten on the charts all at one time. This is a big accomplishment for a black artist.

    it is amazing considering how poorly he performs.
    i think he is the least talented artist to ever have success.

    That's not saying much, since the Beatles sucked just like 50 cent sucks. See a trend? Crap sells.

    Kudos to 50 for this honor.

    For clarification to some. I dont support this mans life style or his music. I simply said good job to him.

    I'm not trying to rain on anyone's parade, but are we seriously sitting here giving 50 cent dap because he was able to push millions of copies of self-hating garbage? Then we wonder why black youths are so misguided and screwed up.

    Fifty is the most arrogant fool i have ever seen. Why do people continue to support him..that just shows the mindset of people. He promotes violence, thinks everyone is supposed to bow down to him, and he can tear down whomever he chooses. Karma does exist. He also displays blasphemy on a day to day basis..has the Cross hanging around his neck but is constantly talking about shooting someone..and on his records calling women b*s and h*s..no kudos from me ever on this ignorant's success.

    Exactly Nisa. Black people are in bad shape when this fool is getting props for what he does. I expect white folks to appreciate 50 cent, but come on black people. We need to be smarter than that. We need to have more pride than that. This is part of the reason why we lag behind.

    White folks will always appreciate him because he tears down his own people, they want to keep him on that pedestal because they know the youth will look up to him as a role model..because of the money and power. Gimme some lauryn hill,jill scott, and india arie.

    I could not agree more James. Most times I don't know what he is saying.
