50 Cent Talks Ending Beef With Floyd Mayweather, Yeezus, J. Cole, Boxing, & Much More

50 Cent 2013

There hasn’t been much in the way of music appearances in 2013 for 50 Cent. The Queens rapper has mainly focused on behind the scenes ventures this year as music has taken more of a backseat (although his upcoming album has been due out four or five times already at this point). J. Cole recently released his widely popular sophomore album Born Sinner and 50 was a rare guest on the project. The track “New York Times” is the only song on the album featuring rappers other than Cole. Recently, the Queens native called into DJ Whoo Kid’s program on Shade 45 and talked about his involvement on the album and J. Cole.

“I think that it’s a good project man,” 50 Cent said. “He’s producing his records while actually rapping on them like Kanye.”

Speaking of Kanye, 50 didn’t spare his feelings about Born Sinner’s release date competitor Yeezus and its creator.

“I think they’re both talented,” he said. “Some of the choices on the new joint that Yeezy made, I wasn’t into all that. I didn’t know what kind of beat came off.”

50 Cent also talked about how Kanye’s sixth studio album might be received by fans and critics down the line.

“It was creative man, it came out of nowhere with that. We’ll see if people can adjust to it and really enjoy it or if it’s too different.”

Finally, 50 talked about his future music and why he doesn’t party too much. He even jokes about re-recording Power of the Dollar with producers such as Timbaland, J. Cole, and Kanye West.

Listen to the full DJ Whoo Kid interview below (via Shade 45):
