Although his last album "Curtis" had a significant decline in sales compared to his past efforts, 50 Cent says he's still number one in the game. [watch here] 50 talked about the current scene in hip hop, how he compares his sales to Lil Wayne and even talked about Jay-Z's staying power.
Admitting Eminem is above him, 50 talks bout Lil Wayne's sales "What does that mean that you sold that." [watch here] "So you gonna forget that I sold 10 million albums twice -12 million first album, 10 million next one. So what does that one million mean? [watch here] 50 says people get caught in the moment. "What you’re talking about is who is a buzz," he explained. "A buzz is a song. So the next song that I release can turn me back into what you feel like is the hottest thing out here. So I mean if I’m showing you full capability of it than what makes you doubt that."

Fif went on to give props to Jay-Z for staying relevant. "There’s a respect that is well deserved on Jay-Z’s part because he’s had that cloud come over him and constantly worked his way through it, having so many projects come out and be successful and maintain meaning," he said. [watch here] "There’s a significance in it. Because they go, after countless amounts of hit records, they go ‘You think you can go out and do it again’. Ask me if I think he can do it again, ‘hell yeah,’ cause he did it how many times in front of us. What makes you think he can’t do it again" [watch here]
