50 Cent is no stranger to the headlines, and the always gregarious rap star entertained listeners this weekend on with a phone call to DJ Whoo Kid’s Shade 45 show shortly after an interview with Hip Hop twin titans Bad Meets Evil in where Eminem and Royce Da 5’9discussed a wide array of topics. However, it was 50 Cent’s revelation of working with Slim Shady on new tracks and his comments on Amber Rose’s leaked nude photos that got the most attention.
50 Cent, enjoying a holiday weekend on the cusp of his 36th birthday, spoke with Whoo Kid at length and even joked about his much ballyhooed new hairstyle – cleverly quipping that his hairdo got more attention than more pressing matters. The G-Unit general also went into great detail about his upcoming untitled fifth studio album and going back to his hardcore Hip Hop roots. Fif’s big reveal, however, was that he’ll be working alongside Eminem again – the man who gave him his big break.
“I recorded four songs in Detroit with Em,” said 50 in talking up his upcoming record. “I did two with Just Blaze, a Boi-1da joint and I did something with Alex Da Kid. I mean I got some heat.” 50 also shared that Eminem serves not only as a collaborator but a part-time A&R for the rapper, helping shape and finalize his album material. “When me and Em get together, if you look at all the collaborations, we made records that were really strong album cuts,” said 50. “We always go into it that way.”
Fif will never be accused of being a shrinking violet, especially when to commenting on the news of the day and the Queens native most certainly chimed in on the steamy nude flicks of model and Wiz Khalifa’s better half Amber Rose. Fif hum offered, “Well, at least it didn’t look bad” – and 50 continued to go in from there. “Let me tell you something, things like that don’t hurt, that’s promotion.” An observant 50 Cent remarked, “Her shoes changed in the pictures” – along with stating that Amber Rose took those photos with the intention of them being seen.
Fif continued by saying that Amber Rose’s photos were not the work of a random moment of spontaneity but rather a planned thing in where she crafted the seductive photos at her behest. 50 also said the photos may have been taken for a significant other but was certainly done under Rose’s directions.
