50 Cent has made his prediction on the first-week sales for Rick Ross and Triple C's debut project, Custom Cars & Cycles, and said their group record could sell over 10,000 copies if they purchased a certain amount themselves.
Speaking with DJ Ekin, Fif also explained his "death blow" toward rap rivals.
"[The public] is looking for the actual death blow to impact immediately," Fif said in an interview. "The death blow, when I hit you with it, you gotta wait six months later. It's dead. He's dead. When I threw the death blow to Fat Joe, it was [2008's] Elephant In The Sand and then six months later, new CD comes out and he sells 8,300 copies. Threw the death blow to Rick, boom, six months later, Triple C's CD come Tuesday, you gonna find what those numbers are and you're gonna fall out. You're gonna identify with the death blow. They can break ten [thousand copies] if they buy some. They can buy some. I don't know [all their names]. We know the police officer. We know the one that got knocked out. We know the kid from the Bronx. He's the tough one, right? The other guy, he wasn't sure if he wanted dreads or he wanted a flat top...People are developing this thing with me where they feel like I'm the bad guy, like I have bad intentions. It's not actually true, actually, I'd like to speak with the kids and tell them, 'Please, do not be this. Do not be like this.' [laughs] You understand?" (My Place)
Posted on ThisIs50.com last week, 50 used an image of the rappers' new album with the Jodeci label.
"Best Of...Jodeci Let me hear your say Yeahhhhhhyeeeeah," the banner reads. "With classics Hits like 'Forever my Burgers, Gunplay ill Cry for you and Can I Handcuff You this is a Must Buy." (This Is 50)
50 recently made his prediction on the group's new album upon its arrival to stores last week.
"Triple Cs is next," Fif promised. "And then Rick Ross is going to follow that failure. Def Jam dumped a whole lot of marketing dollars into trying combat me with Rick Ross. More money than they should have. What his numbers were versus what Jadakiss did, didn't make financial sense. So the next go-around, they're going to give him his fair share instead that extra piece of pie. Then you're going to see where he really is." (Complex)
According to an interview with Ross last month, the rapper benefited financially from his taunts at 50's camp earlier this year.
"I made more money, you know what I mean, after you crush such a huge donkey," Ross said referring to 50. "I'm the only one that put out a number one album and we in this business to put out records and put up numbers and generate funds and as you can see, I'm putting out another number one album while [G-Unit] hasn't put out one. So it's elementary to me and I think they learned their lesson, they know to keep going, R.I.P. Hold up, let's give a moment of silence, it's only right to bow our heads for Lloyd Banks. I pray my career don't be like Lloyd Banks'." (Real Talk NY)
