50 Cent Talks About His Verse On

50 Cent calls into DJ Whoo Kid's show on Shade 45 to talk "Born Sinner" and "Yeezus."

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.

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.

    You forget 50 was shot 9 times and almost died. You forget 50 got whooped by Ja Rule, stabbed, and left with a punctured lung, but instead of handling it like the gangsta he claimed he was, he went to the police. You forget 50 still rides around in bulletproof cars because he's afraid. You forget 50 doesn't even do his own dirt. He pays bottom feeder goons to airlift crackheads, then acts like a 12 year old by waving a stolen chain in a video. All that said... Ross is winning. He's got a modest, yet consistent career, and even though his rep took a minor hit with the C/O thing, it hasn't stopped artists reaching out to him.

      - yeah he got shot like 15 years ago, BEFORE ANYONE KNEW WHO HE WAS - its not like ja was the one who stabbed him? punctured lung? lol never heard that one, it was 3 stiches on his hand! what kind of niggas turn out the lights to fight someone? they would have got shot if they didnt -ofcourse he rides around in bulletproof cars, as you said he been shot 9 times and he beefs with eveyone - do his own dirt you say? fyi 50 was right there jumping gunplay with the goons! but why should a boss get his hands dirty? thats like bill gates mopping the floors at microsoft! when does ross do his own dirt? LOL he got crack heads trying to run up on his enemies for him getting beat down and robbed!

      Rick Ross went out and copped (no pun intended) a bullet proof ride as well after they shot at him, He stole another mans life and rapped about it...not just the life, but even the name. He was a correctional officer.. he lied about it...he makes terrible music. follow at noles506

    "50 cent = 250 million Ross = 20 million" A man is measured by more than his bank account. Ross may be worth less than Curtis, but on the streets where it counts, Ross is winning the battle. Plus the industry respects him.

      LOL How is Ross winning anything on the streets? When the last time 50 got threatened by major gangs all over the USA and had to cancel his tour? When the last time someone fired shots in the air at 50 and made him crash his whip into a fucking building? LOL correctional officer winning anything on "the streets" and you're right we can also measure Ross by his weight. lard ass nigga cant even see his own dick

    The track "New York Times" is the only song on the album featuring rappers other than Cole. Isnt' there a rapper from J. Cole's Dreamville imprint by the name of Bas who is also on this same track? Or am I mistaken?
