50 Cent recently sat down with Rob Markman from MTV to talk about the platform he’s developing that will attract artists from major labels to G-Unit Records, appreciating what Eminem and Dr. Dre did to help his career, maintaining a passion for music, the theme for Animal Ambition, measuring his success and how the collaboration with The Lox came about.
“It was an idea to do a song with Jada, and I did it. I went to Yonkers to go get the record,” 50 explains. “I come to their hood and we got a chance to kick it. All their homies was around so it was the perfect time for me to play music to see how they would react to it. One joint came on and [Styles P] went crazy to it. Styles was like, ‘Play that again.’ He just kept going on [about it]. And I was like, ‘I’ma leave it, you can just get on it.’ And he was excited.”
Animal Ambition will be released on June 3rd.
