"That's just the nature of the game. That's why, man, it's sometimes better to have careers almost like Jay Z and T.I.Reasonable Doubt came out critically-acclaimed album, commercially it didn't do so well. But if you watch Jay Z just grew and grew and grew with every album. Same thing with T.I.I'm Serious, critically-acclaimed didn't sell shit. He got dropped from the labelBut he grew. He grew, grew, and grew and got to a certain point. So, after a while, like with 50, came out red hot. 10 million records sold. Boom, right on top of that, G-Unit album. Boom, four million records sold. Massacre album sold like 10 million records. He capitalized off his moment. From that point on it was just about being consistent. And I think up until his last album he was consistent. Cause his last album really didn't sell well, but 50 Cent is a brand."
