"How to Rob" was a great track.

50 Cent made over $400 million when Coca Cola bought Vitamin Water. Money wise, I think he is more successful at the moment. Jay will top him in the long run though.

He made 150 million from that investment. Jay currently still has over 300 million, 50 doesn't even have 100 at the moment.

Okay so if 50 cent and Jay Z decide to go on a beef together. Who would come out the winner? 50 cent is a cold blooded killa in beefs. I seen that video where he has Rick Ross's kid as hostage sh1t was surreal.

Jay Z: "I'm about a dollar, what the **** is 50 cents?"

50 He's a living legend, and I'm Guessing People Know 50 More than Jay-Z , because of his unique flow.

50's worth over $500 million at the moment, where as Jay-Z is worth just under $400 million.

Do you really need to protect Jay about everything?

Sold more per record, made more money, expanded to other media, etc...

What else is there to being successful in terms of a rapper? We're not going to go on integrity and being a good person are we?

But you can be successful is music and not so much in other avenues, or the complete opposite.

If it's music, it's Jay-Z. 50 has him beat with Get Rich or Die Trying and the Massacre in album sales but as a whole Jay-Z has sold more records and Roc-A-Fella/Roc-Nation are/were heads above G-Unit.

Outside of music, 50. V-Water, movies, g-unit apparel, ect. Jay-Z has done alright with Rocawear but that's about it.

Jay-Z owns some of the New Jersey Nets. Pretty sure that counts for something.

I realize, though in a shorter amount of time, 50 has done more and made more money as a whole.
I think that says he's more successful as a businessman than Jay-Z is.
