50 Cent Talks Hospitalization, Same-Sex Marriage, & Cam'ron Collaboration
Fresh out of the hospital, 50 Cent stopped by Funkmaster Flex’s show with DJ Drama to promote their Gangsta Grillz mixtape The Lost Tape, due May 22.
The G-Unit commander explained the reason he was hospitalized (“I ate something in London that wasn’t right with me”) and addressed the rumored beef with his signee Lloyd Banks. He also revealed that he and Cam’ron are working on a joint project and talked about signing Ma$e to G-Unit.
Plus, does 50 support same-sex marriage? Find out what he had to say.
On his rumored rift with Lloyd Banks: “There’s a point where artists need to go and develop on their own and I think he reached that point. He should executive produce his own project. He been picking his own music. Now it’s time for them to find that manager, those outside people who can completely focus on their projects and take them to that next level.”
On Cam’ron: “They should look forward to us working together, music and film. We gonna be doing something that happens first of the month. We’ll swap each one of the months.”
On Game: “They looking at me saying, ‘You’ve done a lot, but what have you done for me lately?’ So they damn sure don’t care about what he doing.”
On Ma$e: “[Diddy] picked up Ma$e, I thought he was gonna come back and see me with the paper later. He asked me for $2 million. Jimmy [Iovine] like, ‘Ma$e ain’t worth $2 million with $2 million in his pocket.’ Jimmy like, ‘Look, I wanna see this thing happen. Let’s make this thing happen and I’ll give up my profit.’ I’ve never heard him say that ever. I think [Puff] had an issue with losing Ma$e to me.”
On gay marriage: “I’m cool. I would like people to actually be happy. Technically I don’t see where it fits into any religion. The Bible that they would read to marry you, it doesn’t have anything in it that says same-sex. If it does, then I would like someone to point out that interpretation. I’ve encouraged same-sex activities. I’ve engaged in fetish areas a couple times. I’m for it. I’m wondering if I’m bad for promoting it when the president says it’s fine.”
