Can you tell that 50 Cent has a new album coming out?
After what seemed like years of musical silence, 50 Cent is ready to crush the buildings again with his album, Animal Ambition. Fresh out of his deal with Interscope, Fif seems more comfortable now that he’s back on his indie grind.
The rapper you love to hate spoke with GQ recently about his comeback to music and more.
GQ has revealed excerpts of the interview, which is slated to appear in newsstands today (May 27) as part of its June issue.
Regarding Puff Daddy, 50 Cent reportedly says, “He’s a sucker.”
Why he left Interscope
“When people couldn’t care less about you actually being successful,” 50 says. “You can feel it.”
Why his relationship with Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks fizzled.
“I enabled these guys,” he says. “I wouldn’t have been a friend if I didn’t help them. But helping them hurt them. Maybe I was paying them to be friends.”
His bond with his son
“Me and my son, we don’t have a relationship anymore,” 50 Cent says. “It’s based on his mom. He’s adopted her way of thinking. I don’t have anything negative around the concept of kids.”
And his feelings on Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs
“Puff’s still out there,” 50 Cent said. “He don’t even need a record. ‘Cause he don’t got one. Like you know Puffy ain’t got no music that you wanna hear. That ‘Big Homie’ shit is garbage. I’m a keep it all the way real with you. Because the guy says ‘Don’t worry about if I write my rhymes, I write checks.’ And then sings to you.”
