50's Music Career is Over!!

Forget about Fiddy's reality TV show 'The Money and The Power' being trashed after only 6 episodes, it's the horrid stuff his putting out that's convinced me that Curtis Jackson's music career has finally hit the proverbial 'Stone wall' - amegonga ukuta, noma!

I have had the unfortunate opportunity of listening to 3 of the singles off his upcoming album 'Before I Self Destruct' (I understand it drops February 3rd, but don't forget it was supposed to be released in December last year), but it's the latest one 'I Get It In' that's convinced me 50 is over the hill. When Dr. Dre produces your track and you still sound flat and mundane, it's time to look for another career.

In the joint, 50 does nothing new. It's the same 'ol nigga, doin' what he's always done - nothin'. The dude's lyrics are weak, he sounds exactly like he did in the last two albums...hell, this guys career is over. Listen to the track on the Profile page of Teenie Kijana, it was posted there by the webmaster last night and give me your opinion. Am willing to put my career on the line that 50 Cent will struggle to sell over 1 million copies off this album. Nevermind the fact the Lil Wayne sold the same number in about a week. Judging from the putrid ruckus 50 has been putting out lately, his next project should've been called "Before I Self Implode."

50 Cent's TV Show Flops!

LOOKS like 50 Cent's TV career can't get him any richer. The rapper's reality show, "50 Cent: The Money and the Power," won't be back. After only six episodes, the series, which was shot in Brooklyn, appears to be the victim of poor ratings and lack of buzz.
Fifty's show attempted to discover the next hip-hop mogul among 14 wannabes - ranging from an 18-year-old youth counselor, who describes himself as "grandma's little hustler," to a guy whose family owns six businesses and raps, "I've got more ladies than Fifty's got Mercedes."
In a lineup full of rappers-turned-reality stars - Snoop Dogg's "Father Hood" on E!, Flavor Flav's "Flavor of Love" on VH1, Rev Run's "Run's House," Diddy's "Making the Band" and Xhibit's "Pimp My Ride" on MTV
- it's surprising that the hip-hop star, who survived nine gun shots in 2000, can't beat bad ratings.
But Fifty's failure doesn't signal the end of the reality road for the network, which said last week it has 16 new series in the works.
"Our new shows will feature themes of affirmation and accomplishment," says Brian Graden, MTV Networks' vice president of entertainment.
"Our shows are going to focus less on loud and silly hooks and more on young people proving themselves."

Biggie Smalls Movie Drops Jan 16

Well y'all heard his music and heard about his legacy, but you ain't seen his movie yet. That's coz the movie drops in the States on January 16th. The Insyder is trying its best to ensure the movie opens in Kenya at least by end Jan, so keep it locked for details on how those plans are coming along. Now to details about the movie...
"Notorious" is about the life of rapper Christopher Wallace a.k.a. The Notorious B.I.G. In just a few short years, The Notorious B.I.G. rose from the streets of Brooklyn to become one of the most influential hip hop artists of all time. B.I.G. was a gifted storyteller; his narratives about violent life on the streets were told with a gritty, objective realism that won him enormous respect and credibility. His stories were universal and gave a voice to his generation.
The film stars multiple award winner Angela Bassett as Christopher's mother Voletta Wallace, Derek Luke as Sean Combs, Anthony Mackie as Tupac Shakur and introducing Jamal Woolard as The Notorious B.I.G.

Did I mention the soundtrack to the Notorious movie is sick?! I mean, malaria and cholera type of sick! But that's a story for another blog. In the meantime, and in between time, check out the, baby
