50 Cent Compares “My Life” To “Hate It Or Love It”
50 Cent compares “Hate It Or Love It” to his latest single with Eminem, “My Life.” In the past few weeks, 50 Cent has been making top headlines with his single, which features Eminem and Adam Levine.
In a recent interview with HipHopWired, 50 Cent discussed his approach to the record. 50 Cent liked “My Life” to his verse on Game’s single “Hate It Or Love It,” from his 2005 album, ‘The Documentary.’ 50 Cent stated that he wanted the song to come from a vulnerable mind state, and added that the song’s content is a natural progression for him.
“What stands out immediately is the vulnerability in the actual writing of the record. I kind of stay away from those points,” he explained. “We all have those moments that we don’t actually like to focus on because it’s uncomfortable. The only other song that I wrote that had that kind of vulnerability to it was ‘Hate It Or Live It.’ I talked about growing up I was confused, by my mother kissing a girl. It’s not understanding what’s going on in front of you. Confusion particularly is a vulnerable state for artists or creative people. They don’t know where to start or where things in. On this particular project the confusion is when you get to the point, you finally become comfortable with the concept of winning and then people decide to go the other way in conversation. You haven’t changed as an actual artist—if anything you’ve grown—but they’re saying ‘I miss the old Fif,’ or things that you can’t re-create. All you can do is offer a portion of who you actually are to create a separation between you and other artists in music.”Photo credit: thisis50.com
