I was just thinking... This dude has to be the absolute worst at evaluating talent in rap history...

Jay signed Rihana (even if you don't want to give him Kanye, who Dame supposedly found)
Kanye signed Big Sean
Puff signed Biggie
Lil Wayne signed Drake and Nicki
Eminem Signed 50
Dre Signed Eminem
Gucci Signed Flocka
RIck Ross Signed Meek Mill and Wale
T.I. Signed B.O.B, Yung LA and Young Dro
Hell, even Ludacris signed Chingy


Why the fuck is this nigga 50 so ungodly terrible at finding someone HOT?

First Phase:
=======
Yayo / Banks... Thats crew, won't even count them (not like they were hot anyway.. hot as in sales)
Game was Dr. Dre artist, and we all know how that ended anyway
Buck ... Somebody tell me something special about buck? Tony Yayo went gold off of 50's waning buzz, so Buck going platinum back then doesn't mean shit to me....


Second Phase:
=========

A washed up Mobb Deep
MOP
Olivia
Spider Loc
Paster Mase (a washed up nigga who was still under contract)

Third Phase:
========
A Washed up Shawy Lo who's last hits came 8 years ago
Kidd Kidd
DJ Pauly
Paris




I mean, wtf is wrong with this dude?


Worst evaluater of talent in history... It seem like he go to the bottom of the barrel when signing acts, instead of trying to find some fresh, unique, skilled talent....


And no, I don't give a fuck.. Was just bored and thought I'd point out how pathetic it was after I saw something about Gunit touring on his site

    Platinum Plats under the G-Unit roster:
    Lloyd Banks - Hunger For More
    Young Buck - Straight Outta Cashville
    The Game - The Documentary
    Mobb Deep - Blood Money
    Tony Yayo - Thoughts of a Predicate Felon

    Outside of Puff, Em, Dre, and Jay. 50 Cent has signed better artist.

    Most of the hot artists you mentioned that got signed by other rappers ain't have no where near the achievements of Buck, Game, Banks, and to some degree Yayo included. Clingy, Flocka, Yung LA, Dro ain't touching Banks in nothing that's considered hot

    And a supposed washed Mobb Deep when gold with the quickness when the Unit was starting to fall off as a brand

    LOL.....

    Yall don't get it... 50 could've signed fuckin Fred Flinstone in 2003 and they woulda went platinum... that don't mean the ARTIST WAS HOT, THAT MEAN'S 50 WAS HOT.... Everybody know this...


    And I said SIGN a hot artist... He came up with banks / yayo.... Game was Dr Dre's artist, and didn't even last on Gunit a year... 50 didn't go out and SIGN game... they wanted game to leech off 50's buzz...


    Buck.... Also leeched off 50's buzz.... does this mean the nigga was a hot artist? Seriously?


    I'm talking about an artist with a massive buzz.. A hot artist who has a sustained career and can stand on their own...


    BOB stands on his own, not off T.I.'s Buzz
    Nicki / Drake stand on their own, not off wayne's buzz


    Keep going down the list....



    Any artists 50 "signed" piggy backed off his buzz for a year, then fell off the face of the earth... Even he say in his new song "I don't write they hits, so it's not the same shit"......HE ADMITED the niggas piggy backed off him..


    50 has never went out, and signed a fresh new, hot artist... Never... Look at the list

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MTV's_Annual_Hottest_MC_List


    Most all artists I listed as somebody someone else signed, Made MTV's hottest MC's list.


    Waka was number 8.... I never seen banks / yayo on the list (and again, them niggas CAME IN THE GAME WITH 50, I don't see that as a "signing"...


    Game made the list, but he wasn't under Gunit then, and I'll repeat for the 4th time, 50 didn't discover game... Maybe that's how I should put it.. an artist this nigga discovered.... Dre discovered Game... Game just leeched off 50's buzz.... That don't mean 50 get credited for having an eye for talent

    in G-Units prime 03-06, all of them were hot except Yayo who still manage to go Plat and put out "I Dont Love Her" & "So Seductive" moderatly hit singles for that summer.


    the MEGA STAR that never signed anybody was LL COOL J !!!!!

    LL Cool J never had much of a crew, label, or cosign artist.

    just own up to it mane ... we all end up having a thread backfire sooner or later lol .... the only argument you could have is that fif never had an artist surpass or match his success ... but in the grand scheme of things even tho they didnt his artist still obtain more success then most artist PAST OR PRESENT especially one that didnt need to really put in any ground work .... you cant fault fif for being so on fire that he could instantly make his artist platinum ....

    yet only got "hot" b/c the artist who signed them "was hot at the time"....which ironically is the same thing your sayin about 50 wit Banks, Buck, and Yayo

    other than B.O.B.....Waka and Sean would be NOWHERE if Gucci and Kanye weren't "hot" in the game
