50 Cent strongly disagrees with the claims that Jay-Z has had a bigger impact on hip-hop than Eminem. He called the claims “bullsh*t” after comments were made by former NBA star Jamal Crawford.
The first claim was made by Jamal Crawford on Shaquille O'Neal's “The Big Podcast with Shaq” where the basketball legend used the two rappers as a getaway to describe his favorite NBA players. “That's why in my top five dominance outweighs the numbers” as said by Crawford on the podcast which Shaquille O'Neal disagreed. Crawford also added that the effect the Brooklyn rapper has had on hip-hop is by far greater than any album sales made by the Detroit rapper.
Upon seeing this, 50 Cent commented “Ha bullshit” with a sneezing face emoji under the post of Hip-hop Wolf on Instagram after the reposted the clip. Despite the fact that Hip-hop was started and owned by the black community in the early 1970s, Eminem’s record sales are nothing to go near. Last March, Slim Shady made history by becoming the No.1 most-certified artist in the history of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
The program announced that the self-proclaimed “rap god” had accumulated a total of 227.5 million sales in his career, comprised of 166 million single certifications and 61.5 million album certifications. He is also one of only seven artists in any genre or era with three or more diamond albums thanks to The Marshall Mathers LP (2000), The Eminem Show (2002) and Curtain Call: The Hits (2004).
JAY-Z’s catalog is no slouch either. His blockbuster third album Vol. 2… Hard Knock Life and Watch The Throne collaboration with Kanye West are both 5x platinum, while Vol. 3… Life and Times of S. Carter, The Blueprint 2 and The Black Album are all triple platinum.
With 14 No. 1 albums currently on the Billboard 200, Jay-Z currently holds the record for most No. 1 albums among rappers. This streak dates back to his aforementioned third LP and was maintained by his most recent solo album, 2017's 4:44. Only The Beatles, with 19, have more.
Over the years, Eminem and 50 Cent have consistently supported one another. Eminem apparently told JAY-Z, who assisted the NFL in organizing the performance as a consultant, that he wouldn't do the event unless 50 cent was included before their historic Super Bowl LVI halftime performance with Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, and Mary J. Blige last February.
As both rappers smash heads, 50 Cent and Jay-Z's friendship has been well-documented throughout the years. When Young Guru publicly claimed that Jay-Z had forewarned his Roc-A-Fella roster about 50's prominence in the early 2000s, the Power mogul replied in September.
When the G-Unit leader heard about Guru's remarks, he sent a message on Instagram thanking Jay and the famous engineer for the compliment. 50 expressed his love for the Roc-A-Fella group, adding that all he wants is a rival to compete with and the comments made by Guru has encouraged him to find a solution and Jay-Z knows he will go lengths to find them.
In addition, 50 Cent stated earlier in January that he was developing an 8 Mile TV show to add to Eminem's already legendary "legacy," though details are still scant at this time. In his own words he said “I’m gonna bring, 8 Mile to television,” 50 said in a radio interview, confirming that Eminem aware of his plans.
After being asked what stage of production the show is in he made it known that they are in motion and the show should be there for Eminem’s legacy because it’s important that people understand it.
