50 Cent did a little bit better than projected, but still flopped.
The man who once made record-sales a requisite for ‘success’ in Hip Hop, 50 Cent’s “Animal Ambition: An Untamed Desire To Win” moved an unimpressive 47,000 units in first week sales; a slight improvement from the original projection of 35,000 he was originally expected to sell. Fif’s latest LP came in at #6 on the Soundscan charts, right behind the “Now That’s What I Call Music: 50″ compilation album. Obviously this was Mr. Curtis Jackson’s lowest first-week sales ever, and his first album NOT on Interscope Records.
And this was with the last minute controversy involving the Slowbucks beat-down at Summer Jam, his opening-pitch disaster during a Mets game, and the G-Unit reunion.
On the bright-side, 50 Cent’s new series “POWER” did pretty well during its debut, with an estimate 2.6 million viewers tuning in for the premiere episode.
It looks like it might be time for 50 to take his “Animal Ambition” else-where.
