    Charts Don’t Lie: June 22

    This week we saw quite a few albums get pushed down thanks to new entries on the Billboard 200 that weren't strictly hip-hop. Jack White's Lazaretto took over the #1 spot, and various other albums, including a country record and "The Fault In Our Stars" movie soundtrack, rounded out the top 5. We won't spend too much time discussing those LPs as you likely have no interest in knowing where Miranda Lambert landed this week, however the hip-hop and r'n'b chart action was rather unexciting this week as well.

    50 Cent entered the Billboard 200 this week, with Animal Ambition moving more than the projected amount, although it's still not the numbers Fif used to do. It's independent numbers though, with a showing of 47,000 units. It will likely be quiet on the charts until we approach June 24th, when we've got multiple albums, including ones from Ab-Soul and Riff Raff, dropping. Until then, we'll have to just keep track on how Fif and friends are doing.

    50 Cent has some experience in film and television at this point. From his acting debut in Get Rich Or Die Tryin', to his executive production on new Starz crime drama, Power, Fif is finding his way into the film industry. It looks as though 50's new show isn't his only focus at the moment, as the rapper announced today that he'll be executive-producing a new film called B.M.F.

    When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music. Today, sampling has become less common, but a choice sample can still push a track from lukewarm to hot faster than you can say "uh-huh honey".

    G-Unit returned in full form yesterday, following a reunion on stage at Summer Jam, with a new freestyle over Hit-Boy & HS87's "Grindin' My Whole Life." The track was originally a posse cut from HS87, so there was plenty of space for 50 Cent, Tony Yayo, Lloyd Banks, Young Buck (and Kidd Kidd) to rap over it.

    On Animal Ambition, 50 Cent returns to the old street-ready sound that made him a household name back in 2003. Unfortunately, a lot has changed in hip-hop since 50’s debut. With the rise of Kanye West (or more particularly 808s & Heartbreak), the genre has become more emotive—more artistically diverse and interesting. Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Kid CuDi and even Future to an extent have thrived off mixing street-singles with genuine tales of personal and romantic hardship.

    50 Cent has been raising eyebrows more than ever over the last few months. In recent interviews, the NY rapper took every opportunity he could to take shots at his former G-Unit crew, only to reunite with them onstage at Summer Jam last night.

    Apparently 50 likes his milk spoiled. Just a few months after referring to his G-Unit associates as "having an expiration date," the general has officially reunited live onstage with Tony Yayo, Lloyd Banks and Young Buck. Tonight's Summer Jam performance marks the first time the entire group has performed together since 2008 when 50 leaked audio of Buck crying to him for advice to the internet, prompting a split between the Straight Outta Ca$hville rapper and the G-Unit head honcho. This is also 50 Cent's first time headlining a Summer Jam show in over a decade.

    50 Cent has been trolling long before the days of the internet. Almost every interview with the outspoken rapper finds him making a few deliberate statements to get a rise out of someone, often another rapper. His recent comments concerning former G-Unit members Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo were no exception, with the rapper saying that they've come to a point where they've resorted to becoming newcomer Troy Ave's hype men, as they appeared in his video.

    By now, we've all had a good laugh at 50 Cent's failure of a pitch for the Mets game last night in New York. The rapper was tapped to throw the opening pitch at the Mets-Pirates game, and although he seemed to have his pitch on-point during the pre-game warm up, when the actual moment arrived, his throw was "juuuuust a bit" off.
