Sh*t up Meek Mill. Just keep throwing bottles at other d*ckheads in the club cause you were f*cking the same ugly w**** who you think cares about your stupid a**, that will keep your "street buzz" up. Oh and don't stop yelling in your songs and never switch from your monotone boring a** flow either, that'll probably make you even more popular among these new retarded hip-hop fans.
Personally I like the way 50 is executing this, it's almost as if he's testing the waters. I hope he just drops the album with no single to see the reaction. It reminds me of Eminem's Recovery album. After "Not Afraid" was released, and once the album leaked, alot of fans gravitated toward the track "Love the Way You Lie". Eminem initially wanted "Space Bound" to be the next single "Not Afraid" but the buzz around LTWYL was undeniable so they acted accordingly, and it blew up even more when they finally chose it as the next single.
The way I feel, is 50 knows interscope don't like him, they know he's a star but things have gotten hazy with them. but i think he also knows his popularity is in decline (musically, before you butthurt stans get at me) so to shield that the straight to iTunes thing will work on getting rid of that last album plus it'll downplay his poorer sales. I think 50 can always sell, he's one of those big names that people just know, he's one of few rappers that's actually relevant outside of hip hop, so he can always do numbers even if it's as a commercialized rapper or whatever.
honestly I have no idea! I mean how could you when he doesnt even have a single out, not to mention Lost Tape had nothing commercial to spark a buzz like that either.
But 50 can take doing poor numbers, because (like everyone says) he's got enough revenue to do this for fun. so i do feel this album is more rebuilding rather than cementing his place.
