50 Cent x Soulja Boy x XXL

blame it on Meka October 19, 2010

No words, really… not complimentary ones, at least. Outside of the fact that Curtis successfully lasered off all of his tattoos (you know, to “enhance” his “acting” career), that is. And the quotable of the day goes too…

SB on about his connection to 50 Cent: “Being Black, with money, from the hood, struggles, and coming from nothing to something, of course you’re going to share the common struggles. You going to have people hate. You going to have people that change on you, and all that. So of course, watching 50, and him going through what he did—if there wasn’t no 50 Cent, there would be no Soulja Boy. You know what I mean?”

50, who has come to SB’s defense on numerous occasions and has taken on the role of mentor to the young Atlanta rapper, can relate. The on-again off-again industry outcast tells XXL Deputy Editor, Rondell Conway, “I’m more comfortable in a space where people are doubting me than when I’m the favorite. They doubted me before. Obviously, I was the only crazy person that believed in me at one point.”

About his young counterpart, Fif says, “If I had the wish to be another artist, just for right now, it would be Soulja Boy.”
