Default who's more succesful? Jay Z or 50 Cent?

On an artistic level and on the commercial level. who is more succesful? I think Jay Z is overall a better artist but 50 cent is more commercially successful he's being in films, music and energy drinks. 50 cent has probably invested the wisest of most of the rappers out there with vitamin water. 50 cent has won in more of his beefs I believe.

I dunno how do you all figure? who's going to be remembered more in 50 years

is it the Jigga from down under or the guerilla from da mist?

50 will be a footnote at best, while Jay will be a legend or close to it, and I'm not even a big hip-hop fan.

Wasn't there just another thread about the richest hip hop artist with Jay smashing everyone else?

Dude is beyond an icon, the fact that he's still relevant in the game, in the market, and in culture is something that still amazes me. Either he's very intelligent or he has very intelligent advisers in his ear.

Jay Z may be the first rapper to claim he's the greatest and he's this and that...and everyone believe him. This isn't to say the man isn't talented or smart, but there was a time when he was just a popular rapper, now suddenly he's THE rapper. And I think it has more to do with self marketing and the overall decrease in quality rappers on the mainstream level than it has to do with him actually being great.

I would say Jay-Z has been way more successful.

50 is more than a footnote, but he is not more successful than Jay Z.

Did 50 sell Vitamin Water? Does he own it outright or just a percentage?

Honestly this isn't even a contest, lol. I couldn't care less on this topic but 50 Cent blew up and dropped from #1 on the list to out of the top 10. He went from 150 Mil once to 30 Mil. Not to mention that he has actually gotten bottles thrown at him and been booed off stages AND just had his album sell 100k first week I would say it's not even a contest. Not to mention Jay is a close friend with Obama, the UN, anybody with power in the music industry, etc. He is an icon, 50 is a has been.

Early 50 Cent was the shit, I liked his music better than Jay-Z's until maybe 2005. 50 Cent went from the thug mentality and went more into melodractic music involving girls while Jay-Z stayed into his element of rap by just being a mack.
