Wait – what did you say, Mr. 50 Cent? You’re NOT retiring after all? What about all the tension, the drama, and the feud that recharged hip hop and the music industry? All lies, apparently. Though he told the world that he’d “no longer perform music” if Kanye West sold more records than him on September 11th when their albums were released, Fiddy has apparently chosen money over promises made for publicity reasons. “No, I’m not retiring,” the rapper told this NY Daily News this week. “[My album] was No. 1 internationally the week it came out. It was the No. 1 European album!”
Well hats off to 50 Cent! That’s quite an accomplishment, sure, but we thought he was a man of your word. Turns out, he’s just a man made of dollar signs. Afterall, Fiddy said it best this week: “It’s all about the numbers at the end of the day.” Word.
