50 Cent had nothing but good things to say about the late Pop Smoke, Nicki Minaj, and Eminem as he spoke to Lil Wayne on “Young Money Radio.”
50 Cent was spreading nothing but positivity during the Friday night episode of Young Money Radio, while talking to Lil Wayne about the executive production of the late Pop Smoke’s posthumous album, Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon, going up under Eminem. and admiring “alpha female” Nicki Minaj. During his conversation with Wayne, Fif remembered the first time he had met Pop, who was tragically killed in February.
“When he was late, Renee, a friend who works for me, says: ‘Why are you late, brother? “He recalled.” He said, ’50 doesn’t work for you. You wait 50. You’re new. “And he said,” Oh, so bad. “Like he said,” I got caught in the trap. “No, you’re not caught. You got bags and shit in the car you were buying. He said, ‘Yes, he was. He was shopping. He was shopping.’ ” ‘He also referred to the frequent comparisons between him and Pop. “I spoke to him. I wonder: “Is someone new to the league copying your style?” And even then, it is a form of flattery. He is copying you because your material was a great influence on him and so he learned how to do it. He learned it by listening to you. It’s another thing when this shit talks to you and you look at it, you’re going No, this shit doesn’t copy 50 Cent. This shit is 50 cents!
The conversation then turned to Nicki Minaj, who Fif has always supported. “I love Nicki,” he noted. “This really comes from my neighborhood. It turns out to be a girl, but that shit is tough! She will be tougher than the shit she fucks with. She will be tougher and she’s an alpha female! That tough motherfucker! Do you see what I say, son? You have to look at her or she will go, she will do something that is making a movement to assert herself. “
Fif also praised Eminem, whom he attributes to having launched his career. “Being in connection with Em, I say this openly, right. I don’t think you sell 13 million records without Eminem,” he said. “Because that connection makes them understand that you understand how they fit into the culture. When you see Em, you see someone who really grew up … hip-hop culture is black music, forget it. Everyone around him is African American, Proof and Denaun and everyone who is part of D12. And he shows up and it’s that fucking good, everything’s fine, I see where I fit in. “Watch his full conversation below:
