50-cent

50 Cent has been vocal about the state of hip-hop as of late.

Recently, he chimed in on Kanye’s “Yeezus” with MTV News UK. The album drew mixed reviews, but 50 Cent says that he doesn’t feel it’s hip-hop.

“He’s obviously a talent within our culture and is one of the driving forces of it, but some of that s**t is weird to me. It doesn’t feel like Hip Hop to me, it feels like a fusion of something else, like a weird combination of dance music sounds and stuff.”

Fif added, “That last record, to be honest, I’m not playing it right now. I still play ‘Flashing Lights,’ ‘Gold Digger’ and that whole [‘College Dropout’] project. But some of the new stuff is so creative and feels like he’s trying to create a whole new sound. It sounds scrambled.”

At the end of the interview he added, “you don’t have to agree with everything an artist does.”
