    @Anonymous Curtis is not on fire, he has zero buzz in the urban market and barely any in the pop market, dont let blog headlines fool you, social media is a more accurate assessment of whats hot and whats not and 50 is not hot, not warm, not lukewarm, he is tepid.

    Damn, you have to have an R&B hook just to get some love on the charts but 2-Pac said it best when he said that the bitches buy records. Jason Derulo at 3X platinum with that techno-hop shit.
