      @Chadillac You have an idea of what the music industry is about. Alot of Crack money have been cleaned up in the music industry pushing many careers to the top, while others had to use their own clean and honest money to make it, or someone else’s…

      I like Trump, but I do not mind Ari Melber. I am not biased completely. I do not support Trump and his Re-Opening of Businesses.

    I can relate to his upbringing. Growing up as a kid, I saw that most adults around me are not role models to me, so I created in my mind my own role model for myself to follow. I believed kids like these are resilient kids who knew early on how they want to live their life regardless of what the world around them looks like.

    • true that

      Peace and Love with Jenny well said Jenny. I can relate, I grew up in paterson nj one of the worst places in the 90’s. I’m 38 now and have a life I only dreamed about because of that same mental adjustment I adopted since I was 14 and everyone that knows me knows that. Classic hip hop artists helped a lot. Nas was a big one a lot of what he said lead me to research what he was talking about.

      @Jorge Sifuentes Did you know that most hip hop songs sounded political, but the hip hop artists themselves are not political even though some of them were asked to get involve in politics. Their music is all about telling stories that people can relate. You and I know, hip hop were born to get out of poverty, and also by their love of music. Fifty Cent is a good example of those kinds of hip hop artist…they just want to make it. They don’t feel unappreciated by society, but rather they feel like they achieved something by themselves and for themselves.

    “ I’d always prefer to be friends with someone, but if they’re not interested, then I consider being enemies the next best option… If you hate me you’re more likely to talk about me “ ✍🏾 I felt that 💯

    I have so much respect for people who don’t use drugs or drink heavy💪🏿

    • PRESIDENT TRUMP has never done any of those drugs, alcohol or CIGS.U still respect our Greatest President 💪💯

    50 Cents is the artist/illusion. Curtis Jackson is the person. Separate the two and understand the difference. Period.

  12. “I’d always prefer to be friends with someone, but if they’re not interested, then I consider being enemies the next best option.” 💯💯💯

    • Not really think about it everybody can find the common ground the world is filled with those that are not friends yet not enemies

  13. “Fitty” is a really likeable guy. I enjoyed the interview.

    Just like I said on the Breakfast Club. 50 Cent is straight out of the book “Idea’s & Opinions” “Albert Einstein”
    “50 Cent Einstein”

    The god MC Rakim wrote a book you need to have him on your show let him take you through a journey of Hip Hop and rhyming

  17. Good interview. It looks like the interviewer was upset that Fif really don’t drink that much lol.

    The negative comments have no bearing on 50 cent’s intelligence, talent and success. I love and respect him.
