50 Cent Says Future Is “Way Bigger” Than Jay-Z In The Streets

No comments

50 Cent just said that Future is “way bigger” in the streets than Jay-Z, as hard as they may be for some to believe. However, it’s not like the talent gaps between the two are all that big nowadays. After all, they both have over a decade of experience in the game, and are incredibly influential in their own right. Still, 50 addressed the comparison (that Future himself made initially) in a recent interview with MSNBC. Overall, 50 maintained that although Jay-Z dominates commercially thanks to his legacy, the Southern pioneer has a lot of treasures to unearth.

“Yeah, yes,” the Queens MC responded to the interviewer’s prompt that Hendrix is bigger than Hov in the streets. “Way bigger. Like, there’s consistent music from him that didn’t chart that [are] huge records that people love and appreciate. Later, it may not have the same things to hold onto that you have at points.” On that last comment, it’s unclear whether he compared the two discographies or made a statement on longevity. Regardless, the “In Da Club” rapper’s point also reflects what kind of music people want to listen to now. At the end of the day, Jay is a legend, but many believe Future’s still in his prime. What’s more is that many consider him a legend already, especially due to his influence this past decade.

However, the self-proclaimed King of New York doesn’t exactly blow out the Atlanta trap icon’s numbers. In fact, it’s a pretty close race, considering Future’s wealth of Billboard Hot 100 hits across his catalog. Even if old heads might flare up in anger at 50’s comments, it’s a very specific and circumstantial question. Beyond that, what’s wrong with bumping “HOLY GHOST” these days instead of “Holy Grail”?

Regardless, it’s quite an interesting conversation, especially coming from a legend of the genre in his own right. In the same interview, Fif spoke on his early career and why the youth fell in love with his artistry. “The stuff that they see that I’ve learned, it kinda kept me out of trouble at points. The stuff I was saying in the music in the very beginning, I was crazy to tell you the truth, Ari. I was absolutely crazy at that point. Kids fell absolutely in love with me and they were in love with the wrong part of me.

“The part that won’t actually continue to be successful,” he continued. “The part that people won’t continue to be something that people celebrate. They have to turn into something bigger and better as they go with the new information and new opportunities that come because they’re really street.” However you may feel about Future and Jay-Z’s comparison, return to HNHH for the latest on them and 50 Cent.
