50 Cent making change.

Many of you may have heard by now... 50 Cent is losing the desire. Dude isn't burnt out, but more so disaapointed. I would be too if I was talking crazy to hype my album up, and then was embarrassed. Kanye's first week's album sales are going to smash 50's. Better yet his album sales as of now, not even a week of sales, are killing 50's. All of this has 50 just a little down. He really needs a shoulder to lean on... Young Dro, do you care to help a brother out? The man has really claimed to not have "it" in him anymore. Out of disgust from his major recording label, he plans to not promote through tours if he does put out another album. He'll be back. Dude loves money too much.

The reality of things is that 50's record label hate his guts. If you compare his pubbing to Kanye's there was no contest... not comparable. Kanye's album was getting pubbed on Monday Night Football for Christ's sake. Kanye had tracks being scored on the hit show Entourage, let alone having a cameo on the show. What was 50 doing? Sitting in a studio drinking Vitamin Water, while downloading Kanye's album off the net. Interscope could care less about 50 Cent, and that's why no one really knew that 50's album was coming out besides when he was throwing up ridiculous comments about him retiring. Confident or just strategizing? Don't know. Right now, it looks as if he was just strategizing.

As far as which album was better I listened to both albums. Many people may disagree (die hard Kanye and 50 fans), but neither album was as solid as expected. That's usually how things work though. Without a question Kanye's album is way more easier to listen to, and sounds better. 50 came with the same old shoot em up, Vitamin water making my money tracks. There was nothing new or exciting about the album. Kanye kept it Kanye with his album. Very smooth and laid back, but the album overall sounds very familiar. Personally, I'm going to hold off on buying either one of these.

Too bad, so sad... Looks like 50 better hit the lab and come up with some more flavors for Vitamin Water.

And that's all that I have to say about that topic.

Over and Out, DocBoone.

Atlanta, GA (October 11, 2007) – With 20 Million albums worldwide already on his plate by contributing to 50 Cent’s rap career with the smash hit “Wanksta,” Multi-Platinum and ASCAP (Rhythm & Soul) Award winning producer J-Praize is ready for another 20 million hit with his new record label “Tha Cross Entertainment.”

This venture inspired by the talented producer’s belief in sacrifice, is already producing waves within the music industry with a roster of dynamic and emerging artists. Major record labels are already talking about including Tha Cross Entertainment to their line-up.

One of The Cross’s artists is a veteran to the music scene. Former Yung Joc group member, Real McCoy, was specially hand-picked by J-Praize and has been strategically developed by “Tha Cross Entertainment” team and is now actively ready and prepared to take the hip-hop industry by storm with his first single "Porn Star,” (mp3 clean version attached aka Super Star) The upbeat track is already a hit in the Clubs and also receiving major radio requests in many markets. But it doesn’t stop there; J-Praize has also composed an exclusive production team which includes several powerful producers and songwriters that are already producing smash hits for the label’s artists. Tha Cross’s songwriting team "Tha Collective" are also writing songs and tracks for different artists outside his label.

J-Praize is definitely not your average producer from the East Coast. The triple threat Queens, NY native is not only a producer but is also a mentor to his artists and a hands on Record Executive/CEO who looks to craft and build his label while promoting his artists. As he and his record label grows, J-Praize seeks to gain more talented artists, producers and songwriters, male and female, ready to top the charts.

Currently based in Atlanta, Tha Cross Entertainment looks to appeal to different aspects of music and hip-hop lovers by producing music that listeners can sit and relate to the real and sometimes blunt lyrics, but at the same time, enjoy the catchy beats that makes them want to dance and have fun.

J-Praize expects nothing less than what he has already sacrificed for and MUSIC is just one of them.
