Love him or hate him, it’s hard to deny that 50 Cent is ringmaster of the rap circus right now, thanks to all of the lunacy swirling around him.
For instance, only a "complex" MC like Fiddy could release album artwork that’s as somber as this, yet simultaneously make the sophomorically sexual "Amusement Park" the album’s first video (watch). Don’t want to watch? Just envision "Cherry Pie" with beats.
His "art" aside, 50 the showman recently put the beef smackdown on a boxer-wearing Cam’ron. Curtis responded to Cam’s recent desperate poolside salvo by saying the Dipset dandy was "delusional" and "shouldn’t be in front of no camera with Daisy Dukes on."
So does 50’s posturing work? Well, a panicky MIMS recently denied saying that 50 should be jealous of him (HIMS?), and went out of his way to kiss Fiddy’s butt from overseas. "I respect (50 Cent’s) work and his ambition and also his business methods," the Zune-peddling MC told SOHH.
