50 Cent's album is slated to sell less than 35,000 copies.

50 Cent's Animal Ambition sales projections are in.

The project is slated to sell between 30,000 and 35,000 units, according to HitsDailyDouble

Recently, 50 Cent spoke about his expectations regarding Animal Ambition's sales. 

"I can't do good," he said. "In my head, what good is because of the success I've had in the past, that's so much lower. I've done so much that having the music that makes people enjoy themselves, that actually means something at the moment is the goal. Like when you said, 'Do you care whether you sell the record or not?' I do care that it actually is within our culture. That it means something.

"I was doing so much," he added, regarding his past sales. "It's all more than I thought. I didn't know that. You had to die, you gotta have a double CD, you gotta be Tupac and get killed to do ten million records. All Eyez On Me, that was the only time I ever saw it before. When it goes past ten to thirteen I was like, 'What?'"

The album earned a 2 out of 5 in its HipHopDX review. Listeners can stream the album on HipHopDX by clicking here.

    50 Cent's Animal Ambition 2nd Week Global Album Sales 50 Cent's fifth studio album, Animal Ambition sold 25,000 copies globally in it's second week in stores. The album is now at two week total sales of 90,000 worldwide. These numbers shouldn't be confused with the album's national sales; it is at a total sales of 63,000 copies in America alone. I see the album selling at least a quarter of a million copies worldwide in total.

    first off no one is buying albums now a days, even if he sold 30-35K he seeing all that money in his own pocket no one getting nothing off of it. You same niggas who dissing the sales is the same niggas that be in the shower singing candy shop to y'all self. Plus nobody listen to real music no more its all about skinny jeans, weed, pills and "hey im gay" what about you. These new rap niggas most of em garbage.

    Actually Game just signed to E1 aka Koch so he's indie now too but at least 50 has his own indie label with major distribution. Game is destined to be a worked all his life. Game is signed with ymcmb. He just needed e1 for distribution since universal hates him.

    50 fucked up by releasing every song off the album before the album release date. Who the fuck is gonna pay $15 for a album if they already have most if not all the songs already.

      difference is he was on a major label with most of the industry's biggest names backing him. how you only move 50k on interscope, bad boy and mmg with a platinum single with drake and weezy? shit is sad. at least 50 was successful when he came out 10 years ago... french not so much.

    "You do understand your saying 23 million means nothing right" That's 11.5 after taxes, and yes. It means nothing when talking about how Animal Ambition flopped.

    "you'd be fired in a week "businessman" Maybe so, but you'd still be mopping floors and taking out the trash.

    "if they sold 100k independently it was a success..independent usually means the artist gets 85 % and the label 15% so anyone who sells 100k or better is successful" Being indie doesn't mean your going to make millions. If that was the case, every one of your favorite rappers would have made the jump long ago. There's still a structure in place where you have to have 1 or 2 hit singles, and constant exposure. If 50 would have put it maximum effort, and brought top shelf producers and collabo's to the table, then he could have done impressive numbers.
    • chris
      Agreed..thats what I was saying 50 will never stretch his self thin when it comes to music..
  • TruthHurts
    50 falls victim to what most once successful rap artist go through. Lack of substance. Rappers like him will catch a buzz and have a ton of success due to their hit singles, but after so long, people don't want to hear the same exact song / lyrics over and over and over again. Yeah, we get it, you're rich and a gangster. You can only say that so many times before it gets old. The shelf life on repetitive jingles is only so long.

    Everybody flopping, not just 50. All the new mainstream shit has been garbage, cuz these niggas are scared to try new shit with the music, fuck a look, fuck a brand, fuck a trend, fuck promotion and go back to trying to be nicest and most creative at whatever you do, if you make beats fuck making what they tell you is hot and make what you think is hot the same for rappers. Half of these pop rappers have been halfassin the music for years now they're starting to see the results of their lazyness, instead of trying to making music for niggas getting an allowance they need to make music for niggas with jobs, niggas with jobs aren't gonna waste their money on garbage, they work hard for their money and they been saving for a while on their music budget because the music is garbage, and blaming piracy is bad copout these days as hard as they enforce that shit harder now compared to 10 or 13 years ago. So I say go back to working hard in the booth not the boardroom.

  • 510
    Whats sad is 50 is using Banks, Yayo, and Buck and they cant do shit about it bcuz they broke. If Animal Ambition had sold 150k or more he wouldnt even fuck with them. He's desperate to get the focus off Animal Ambition so ride the G-UNIT topic... CHESS!!!
