50 Cent Explains That Beef Isn’t What Sell Records
50 Cent explains how beef isn’t everything and says that Eminem’s influence has said his career. 50 Cent released his new single “My Life,” which features Eminem and Adam Levine.
In a recent interview with Carson Daly’s show, 50 Cent discussed how much Eminem has meant to him, and compares Eminem’s impact to his grandparents’. He also got into the topic on how his own up and coming artists ended up on his bad side.
“My career wouldn’t even exist, I wouldn’t even be talking to you if it wasn’t for Em,” 50 Cent explained. “It’s amazing that later in your life you could find someone that means so much to the comfort in your actual life. My grandparents were that for me before Em.”
50 Cent continued and was then asked about the feud with former G-Unit members. He just said that the G-Unit members wanted to be has big as him, but with him around.
“You can offer an artist an opportunity to have the audience that’s interested in you become interested in them. You can let them perform on your stage and work in your music videos and everything but if they want what you have and they can’t quite do that, they gotta establish that on their own,” he shared. “The artists got uncomfortable and felt they wouldn’t be as big as me with me. I never felt, ‘I have to get rid of Em to get big.’”
50 Cent also said that beef doesn’t sell an artist’s album.
