50 Cent Is Back
So this past week, 50 Cent dropped the visuals for "Major Distribution." The track exists as a teaser for 50 Cent's upcoming album Street King Immortal coming the end of February. The video is directed by frequent Rap video maker Eif Rivera and features cameos from the track's collaborators Snoop Dogg and Young Jeezy. The video looks like a 50 Cent video: ladies shaking their butts, posse scenes, a kid wearing an MMG chain (that's a little out of the ordinary), etc. etc. Snoop Dogg is in his Snoop Dogg mode, though he's wearing his special Snoop Lion hat and has diamond encrusted shades in the colors of the Ethiopian flag. Jeezy looks like Jeezy. Business as usual. Does this qualify as a "50 Cent's back" battle cry? Who knows. On thing is for certain: Street King Immortal better change some lives. Check out the video below:
50 Cent's Street King Immortal arrives February 26th.
The name says it all...keep it going on!
I have met too many that never made it
to the top! In their 50's they still believe!
We need our originals to keep going so
we remember how it all started.
A new wonderful, generation of time
That no talent, arrogant, ignorant, loud mouth, couldn't play an instrument to save his life. It's a shame the "value" that the world puts on thugs like this. I remember I reluctantly went to a Rap “concert” at the Long Beach arena back in 85’ – we were 5 couples, and sat in the first row on the upper level. The floor was open and the stage was in the center. Grand Master Funk and the Furious Five, Houdini and some other fools were “performing” when all of a sudden a group of blacks got a hold of the only white guy on the floor and proceeded to beat him so bad that he was knocked unconscious, they were dragging him around like a rag doll. Finally, one guy grabbed the victim, like in a full-nelson, and one at a time – these animals rushed towards him with a punch or kick, there were even girls in assaulting him! The security was terribly outnumbered and could only watch in horror. We all got up to leave as the violence spread to the upper level. As we were exiting, we witnessed these blacks confronting couples and snatching jewelry off them and assaulting them. Tons of police showed up and numerous arrests were made. It was my first and last “Hip-Hop” – “Rap” concert of my life. It’s like with anything that’s bad, at first you hate it, then you tolerate it, then finally you embrace it and endorse it.

C'mon, 50 broke? Dont think so. I'm not his accountant but, Vitamin Water, G-Unit Clothing, SK Energy Drink, Sleek50 headphones, around 6 (including G-Unit) major distribution albums, 8+ movies.....Thats just off the top of the head.
I wont even get into the whole violence in rap, destroying our youth garbage. Rap is no worse than any other form of media. Just so happens that those "black" guys are doing it.
True, i would love hip hop to go a little more conscience(?) but whatever. I listened to it all my life and I work in the corporate world, have 2 great kids (at home) and I dont do drugs.
Snoop Dogg...I missed you at Lucky Star Casino...Bought some cds they weren't yours but they made my boys smile ... so okie dokie!
"Light up all"
just another 62 year old fan. Yo' got it going on Snoop...you started it all a new generation my boy incluced. Just saying thanks for getting us past the "Elives" era'!
