50 Cent Talks Straight To DVD Backlash

During G-Unit’s interview with Tampa Bay’s 95.7, 50 addresses the negative comments he receives for his straight to DVD films. Despite the backlash, he says he pockets $800,000 for each project. Interesting. Then at the 4:25 mark, he gives an update on the possible move to Def Jam.

  • http://Twitter.com/FoxxFiles Foxxalopolis

    Releasing a movie straight to DVD is the equivalent to releasing an album on E1/Koch. Which Boo Boo shitted on just a few years back. Karma is a fat bitch for this guy.

    @Foxxalopolis—”Releasing a movie straight to DVD is the equivalent to releasing an album on E1/Koch.”

    That’s not necessarily true, Foxx. Theatrical grosses only account for a fraction of a film’s total earnings. DVD sales, television rights, and other ancillary revenue streams account for the bulk of money made. Plus, there’s more distribution channels so a project can reach a much wider audience.

  • Oj Da Cornball

    For dudes that say DVD is + to Koch you such an idiot.
    BIg timer studios does it all the time, but for 50 it’s a fail. lol.

    Like he said ,the negative comment is actually good for him cause it’s always park these dialog between those who defend him, hate him thus always keep him out there and relevant.
    Dude actually prefer the hate than not to be talked abut at all. LOL. smart

  • Oj Da Cornball

    oh yeah, Ha ha, hahuhahaha. Straigh to The Bank. lol

  • seemoregan

    50 needs to quit talking so much. You giving niggas too much game. Small interviews and more music. Drop “They Burn Me” and “Sunday Morning”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://myspace.com/730amazin amazinace

    YALL HATERS MAD AT 50, BUT 50 NEVER LIED TO YOU HE “GOT RICH”.
    I DON’T THINK HE WANNA SELL 10 MILLION COPIES LIKE THE FRIST ONE.
    HE PUT MORE RAPPERS ON, GAVE YOUR FAVORITE RAPPER A CHANCE TO CHANGE STYLES.
    I DONT THINK HE IS DONE, HE IS ON TO THE NEXT ONE

    DO YOUR HOMEWORK HIP-HOPERS!!!!!!!

  • Thank Me Hater

    Like it or not 50 still gettin more money than Ross and Fat Joe and all his other enemies so fuck it. Also 50 always drops knowledge in interviews. He always talk about some real shit

  • Ola

    I just watched this interview and I have to say that Game made the right descision by leaving,cause I don’t understand why yayo and Lloyd banks can’t express theme selves in an interview, they are artist and it looks like they are being sucked out by 50 and I am saying this as a fan.

  • seemoregan

    @ Ola

    Banks doesn’t like to talk too much! He plays his role. Quit hating. Banks, Yayo, Game & Buck exist because of 50.

    50 a good dude and everybody eat around him. You don’t see niggas complaining about him in that way. Nigga put Maino on to Atlantic and not getting nothing for it.

  • Interscope Employee

    Never count 50 out haters. Just watch how he’ll come back on your asses in a couple months lol

    RECOVERY!

  • Rock D

    50 Cent is quite possibly the biggest fail in the history of failing. One of the biggest falls from the heights of hip hop fame. This nigga getting bitch slapped by karma and he deserves it all for all that shit talking he did. This nigga got bodied by Kanye, Game, and Rick Ross….3 niggas that he couldn’t “get rid of” like he did with other rappers. lol. 50 Cent is LAME

  • iHATEhaters

    @Rock D
    LMAO
    DID YOU HAVE A BOWL OF HATE-O-POPS FOR YOUR BREAKFAST ???
    HOW DID HE GET BODIED BY KANYE,GAME AND ROSS????
    3RD HIGHEST SELLING HIPHOP ALBUM OF 09 WITHOUT NO RADIO SPINS
    UMM YEA HE DONE FELL OFF . .
    .
    IF YOUR GOING TO HATE AT LEAST BE ABLE TO BACK THE SHIT UP SON . . .

  • random

    @Rock D thanks for telling the truth and Rick ross is winning right now and so is kanye and plus black magic aint even a rap album its some european pop shit only kanye can experiment and get away with it this guy buzz been dropped keep doing them Direct to DVD movies

  • Killa Kels

    Once again 50 makin moves for the love of the money and not the craft. This time in a whole other genre of entertainment. We witnessed the previous movement, where he makes a shit load of money but in the end has very little love to show for it. I see he hasn’t learned yet. Niggas that do it for the love get money too (think Wayne, Kanye, Jay in rappin and Will and Cube in acting). But niggas that do it for the money got very little love to show for it.

  • Blue

    @ word

    Shut up fagg

  • Gordon B.

    All I can say is, where there is success there is hate.
    I’m not a big fan of his recent music either but why do you feel like you need to hate on the man for making stacks, not like he’s and arrogant motherfucker running around dissing everyone and waving his money in interviews. “Aint nothing but music” – D12

  • random

    @ Roc D ppl like iHatehaters cant see the truth 50 buzz is DEAD and hes gonna damage it even more with black magic european pop music wtf and btw ross and kanye is winning right now so all of you 50 fans [if you still exist] STFU

  • JERZZZ

    Y’all niggas is stupid. Movies arent like music. A Single album will never Generate as much money as a single movie. Independent movies that actually get DVD distribution, always make money. Especially as the owner of the the production company and starring in the movie to cut costs. 800g’s a pop aint nothing to laugh at or diss. Fuck i’ll take the hate he get for 800gs a fuckin low budget movie. You niggas got your priorities fucked up.

  • blaqscorpio

    Poor 50, lol

  • Rock D

    50 Cent ran his mouth about Kanye, saying how his album, Curtis, would easily outsell The Graduation album, then tried to discredit Kanye from rap saying no true hip hop heads feel Kanye. 50 Cent even said that if Kanye outsold him, then he would retire from rap….what happened- Kanye outsold 50 Cent and Kanye’s album was critically acclaimed, while 50’s album Curtis was being called the worst album of his entire career. LOL. That being said, Kanye bodied 50 Cent.

    Next up- The Game saga…..

    50 Cent tried to send The Game back into obscurity but failed miserably as The Game kept releasing hits all while referring to G-Unit as G-UNOT. lol. Dr Dre even started fucking with Game again and pushing 50 Cent to the side…Dre wouldn’t even take time to mix down 50’s tracks anymore instead spending his time on Eminem and The Game’s albums…it’s pretty obvious who sitting in the back seat- yep- 50 Cent. LOL

    Finally…The Rick Ross debate….

    50 Cent brought all this attention to Rick Ross’s past employment as a CO. 50 ridiculed him, even bringing his baby mama into the drama to talk dirt about Rick Ross….

    Shortly after that Rick Ross’s album came out and it was a BANGING ass album full of guest features and top level production…Everyone began riding for Rick Ross regardless of his past job. Now he is on hip-hop’s A-list of rappers while 50 Cent is on the Z list. LOL. That being said, Rick Ross bodied 50 Cent and his tired ass antics….

    I rest my case. It’s pretty easy to see who is making moves in hip hop right now and 50 Cent is clearly not.

    True he made his money and had some great moments, but those days are behind him. Now he just talks shit and puts on straight to DVD movies. Loser.

  • Sin

    If I’m gettin more than a half million dollars to do a straight to DVD film then I’m doin it. Yall noggas would to. Pshh integrity..?

  • 5050

  • Rock D

    ^ Clearly you are a fan of 50 Cent, which means your opinions worth only about 2 cents…if that. And besides next time I want your opinion, I’ll rattle your cage. Now run along and play your CURTIS cd.

    @ 5050-

    lol

  • Jiggamayng

    Fuck 50 Cent.

    He is garbage.

    Always will be.

  • iHATEhaters

    @Rock D
    1 KANYE VRS 50 = FAKE BEEF FOR THE SALES
    .
    2 GAME VRS 50 = GAME AINT IRREVELANT IN 2010 (HASNT HAD A HIT SINCE 05)
    .
    3 ROSS VRS 50 = WENT AT HIM FOR THE PUBLICTY FOR HIS GUEST FETURED, BIG NAME PRODUCERS ALBUM.
    .
    YOU DONT LIKE 50 AND THATS COOL, BUT TO SAY 50 AINT MAKING MOVES IN HIPHOP IS A STUPID REMARK TO MAKE . .
    .
    AND HIS VERSE ON THAT “”BITCH”” REMIX IS FIRE. . . .

  • Rock D

    Why do I feel like you work for thisis50.com? lol That nigga 50 Cent is toast!! He merked himself too which is the unfortunate part. I don’t see him doing anything relevant in music ever again. This new “Black Magic” album sounds like a bite off Kanye’s 808 album too. That fool is learning a life lesson in talking shit and alienating your fanbase. Anyhow- I’m done wasting time on his sorry ass. Next.

  • ellie

    50’s always on his grind,say to hear that he may be leaving Shady Records but I guess that just how things work out especially with Em devoting so much of his time to Royce and Slaughterhouse. Got to go where you can do the best for yourself and your ppl.

  • E_

    Let Me Guess, This Post Is Full With Comments Like “50 Is Over, He Garbage, He Fell Off, His Music Career Is Over Etc”

    Well, Go Check His U.S Tour Gross “So Called Failed Tour By Bloggers”, He Earned 3mil. Now, Go Check His Worldwide Tour Gross, How Much He Earned ? Yes, 20mil+.

    Now, I Wanna Know How Much Y’all Earned In This Year ?

    “Black Magic” Being 808 Type Of Shit ?, Son , Get Off Them Drugs. If You Haven’t Noticed, Real Hip-Hop Is Disappearing, Niggas Are No Longer Rapping, Rappers Are Doing R&B(Drale) & Pop(Em,Jay) Records To Stay Alive, And If I Remember, Fif Said This Album Will Soulful.

  • Crankfueled

    I saw 50 at the gas station the other day buying a slurpee… He had just done a show in my town which I missed due to work…
    Then on my way home I saw his bus outside the gas station.
    I swung in to say whats up but as soon as I got like 4 feet from him I was told by his 5’5″ boy it wasn’t cool to talk to him….
    It was midnight and the store was deserted except for his posse. Would it have been that big a deal to say what’s up?
    I get it… He’s a celebrity and doesn’t always wanna be hassled but come on i’m just one skinny white kid.

  • 12reps

    this nigga sold out, ya dig?!

  • Flow One

    Fuck that sorry ass nigga 50 Cent..That’s why shady ain’t even fucking with him no more. Cause he’s fucking WACK. 50 couldn ‘t even sell 1/8th of the tickets to a show here in Atlanta at a small ass venue so he cancelled. lol. Nobody is checking for his bitch ass. I bet that nigga flops for the rest of his life.

  • ganjja

    its funny to me when i see 50’s fans talking bout ppl hating on 50 like he is a cool nigga minding his business and getting hated on, nah if any nigga deserves hate its 50. he done hate and try to discredit every rapper doing they thing even if the mention him or not. 50 been discreditting alota rappers music like say kanye’s and ofcourse they lost one or two fans from that shit. karma is a bitch. If someone hate on drake i will understand since the lil nigga just tyrna eat and paying nobody any mind. but 50 didnt want anyone else to eat when he was at the top and if anyone hate on 50 i will never blame them

  • trrss
