In a recent interview, 50 Cent spoke to Hard Knock TV about the state of hip hop and whether or not artists could have massive record sales. He told Hard Knock TV that no one will ever have record-breaking numbers when it comes to record sales due to the state of the music industry being in a decline as it pertains to sales.
“News flash, I’ll never sell 13 million records again. I’ll never sell 10 million records again. I don’t think anybody’s gonna do it. It’s a different business. It’s a different thing and I’m cool with that,” Fif said in an interview. “I’m making music because I love it and it’s why I’m here. There’s nothing that can actually compare when it’s right. What it feels like when it’s right. When the music is just dead right and it’s like ‘woo’ that energy that’s there…that’s some special kind of high that you get addicted to and you’ll chase it for the rest of your actual career.” -50 Cent (Hard Knock TV)
