50 Cent Named Songwriter of the Year

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/5007390.stm

I think that pretty much speaks for itself. And no, I am not an old engineering geezer that hates Hip Hop. There are just way more deserving people (even in the Hip Hop arena, ie. Pharell)

Hmm, seems to me that "songwriter of the year" should go to the person who wrote the "song of the year" when that "song of the year" isn't even close to being the best song on the album? Then again, when have award shows ever made sense?

I didn't know 50 Cent wrote either? Does he produce all his own beats? I wouldn't think you could get "songwriter of the year" just for writing lyrics. Especially lyrics that suck.

Maybe they should just make a new award called "Songwriter Who Got Shot 9 Lives And Lived To Rap About It" award for him and be done with it.

The way I see it, he survived not because he was tough, it was cause whoever was shooting at him must have been blind as a bat.

I'm certainly not a 50 cent fan....never really have been.... The only justification I can see in him getting such an award is being the lyric writer for NUMEROUS hits in the past year...then again, I don't know how the awards are tallied.... All I know is everytime I'm driving to work skipping through the Top 40 / Pop / Urban stations you can't escape his voice...

Oh yeah that boring mono-tone voice, can't escape that. I think they use his stuff as a torture device in China. I don't mind his beats but man his voice is boring as ****. At least someone like Snoop or the late ODB had presence to their songs not just flashy, top 40, club beats.

I hate his lyrics (some anyway) , but I can't deny he is a very intelligent business-man who is actually a very decent guy despite his media image.

Good for him to get his 15 minutes + fame and fortune... thumbsup

As far as his voice goes, he ain't Jay Z or Chuck D, that's for sure.

I thought to win Best Songwriter of the Year you had to WRITE YOUR OWN SONGS.

Well, uh....the lyrics that I'v heard him recite aren't THAT mind bending.... Why would you think he's not writing his own material.. And why do I sound like I'm defending 50 cent (lol).... He's just an average rapper to me....

Obviously the guy has a horseshoe rammed straight up his ass.

Anyone who can get shot 9 times and not die, write mediocre lyrics and be named songwriter of the year has got to be eatin' his lucky charms.
