50 Cent Talks Giving Back, State of Music, & Becoming a Billionaire

50 Cent and Lee Hawkins

50 Cent sat down with The Wall Street Journal‘s Lee Hawkins for a serious discussion. The hip-hop impresario and philanthropist spoke about how his SYNC by 50 headphones differ from Dr. Dre’s Beats by Dre, his mission to end hunger in Africa through his business ventures, how the Internet has impacted the music biz (“I think Sean Parker has a pretty good idea with Spotify”), his mixtapes, and becoming a billionaire.

“That’s not my focus right now,” said 50. “After you accomplish enough, I’m already a billionaire compared to where I come from.”

    He’s a billionaire ?

    @Redchainsaw, no. he’s worth something like 400 million. Diddy and Jay-Z most likely have more of a chance of becoming a billionaire, but 50′s rise is definitely the biggest considering the way he did it (mostly on his own).
