You think 50cent can make a decent return like Jayz 3 years ago?

Jay stayed losing with Kingdom Come, American Gangster. But he finally appealed to the mainstream crowd once again with Blueprint 3....... Looks like 50 is trying to collab with a lot of hot artist right now for his album. I think if he switch up his rapping style a bit he could start appealing to most of these soft internet thugs on here. what you think?

    KC had first week sales of 680,000, while BP3 had first week sales of 476,000. So Jay's comeback was six years ago, not three.

    Plus AG is a damn near flawless album, so he didn't "stay losing".

    American gangster was a dope album though. Blueprint 3 was a solid album, kingdom come was disappointing.

    Kingdom Come>>>>> Blueprint 3

    Outside of Empire State of Mind Blueprint 3 is very forgettable. Kingdom Come gets hate because Jay-Z Grew Up when he came back and nobody was expecting that.

    Back to the subject at hand... Jay left at the top of his game... 50 made ppl dislike him at the top of his Game... Their comebacks can never be equal. 50 has alot of shutting up to do and a lot of undeniably Hot music to put out... He can have a steady career if he did such but thats gonna be hard being that he doesnt know how to shut up and he's past his prime but there's always hope.

    I understood that jay took the grown approach. But it was poorly executed IMO.

    Bp3 had some dope records.

    Real as it gets with jeezy
    Run this town with kanye
    Star is born with j Cole
    Ambitious with the neptunes

    That album gets a little more hate than it deserved.

    He can comeback if he stopped watering down his albums with get rich of die trying remakes. For him to make a successful comeback he needs to evolve as an artist.

    None of those songs are better than

    Prelude
    Trouble
    Do U Wanna Ride
    Lost Ones
    Minority Report

    You really named do you wanna ride and trouble? Them songs were weak. Lost ones and the prelude were dope and while the message was good I hated minority report.

    Last Verse from Trouble>>>>>>>>> Anything LYRICALLY u named and did u actually listen to Do U Wanna Ride?



    You know why they call The Projects a project, because it's a project!
    An experiment, where in it, only it's objects
    And the object for us to explore our prospects
    And sidestep cops on the way to the top - yes!
    As kids we would daydream, sittin on our steps
    Pointin at cars like yeah that's our sex
    Hustlers, prophets, made our eyes stretch
    Swanson got the spot, shit we started our trek
    Some of us made it, most of us digressed
    In the name of those who ain't made it my progress
    Show success please live through me
    See I'm the eyes for Emory, keep him alive
    (This is a collect call) So everytime I press five
    All he wanna hear is his boy talk fly
    Up in the fed, and still holdin his head
    So when he hits the streets he gon' eat through this bread
    Now let's ride

    First 4 Bars alone is Fire...

    Hov made niggas wanna step they double enterdre's up

    Monster of the double entendre, Coke is still my sponsor
    Heh, the Cola, yeah
    Hova still gettin it in with soda
    Diet, no sir, I ain't lose no weight
    Started from the crates now I'm sittin on a whole case
    Since they got you sittin on that old case

    dont care


    50 never fell off


    the fickle fans did cause dre and em dont stand stand side by side with him anymore


    50 at this point is basically an underground artist with a few hundred million $$$$ in the the bank

    no other rapper has dissed their label head like fif...he's so rich he doesnt give a fuck about who his "boss" is


    just keep makin that street shit fif and the people that were there since '99 will support

    Straight up. I will be coppin no matter what. No one makes grimy shit like Fif no more. He is the last of the gritty and more people should appreciate that.

    I don't know to me back than Jay was doing his thing, but it felt like everything was overshadowed by 50 Cents camp in 03. I remember the VMAs, Chappelle the host gave Jay Z a watch for his retirement in rap. It was a crazy year in music. I think the difference is that people are counting out 50 Cent while some people wanted Jay back(he still got a lot of hate from his return)

    50 Cent was never a great mc to begin with, and that he got shot 9 times gimmick got old real quick to mainstream America. Dude is done, there is no coming back once the perception that you fell off takes place. Most rappers don't have that longevity of a Jay-z/Em/LL, they typically burn out like a Nelly, DMX,etc 4-5 albums later.

    Naw 50 could make a comeback. He is going to have to switch up his style. Jay=z still looks hip and he's like 41. 50 sometimes look all fat when he dresses "street" You have to have that hip appeal if you're old(30 n up). Look at wayne and jeezy.... 50 is going to need 3 things, cool beats(prefer from Dre.), change the way he sound on the mic, and just start dressing like a thuggy rapper since that's what he raps about
