Fuse aired their50 Cent: The Lost Tapes” special last night, where 50 spoke on the ailing music  business and his thoughts towards finding a solution.

50 blames the downfall on technology, explaining that:
“I don’t think the music business is dying. I think we’re just experiencing technology and we just have to pass new laws, eventually, to change how music is being distributed. There’s no lack of interest in great material, I don’t see people ‘not’ going to the night club or enjoying themselves when the song comes on. It’s just about re-developing what the music business is. It’s easier to download a song that’s three minutes long, probably about three or four seconds for you to download it, it’s easier to steal…The technology is so new and what we’re actually doing on the web that we have to develop that. And those things won’t actually happen, the effective laws won’t happen until it starts to damage film. When you got your blockbuster film doing $120 million in a weekend and then that blockbuster film that they spent $120 million comes out and nobody goes to see but everybody watched it because they could pull it off their computer and see it on HD at home on a theater. They’ll change those laws.”
I would definitely have to agree with 50 on this one, no one’s going to pay for a 3 minute song, that will take them 3 seconds to get for free…
