Following on the heels of Pharoahe’s IAmA session, 50 Cent also stopped by Reddit. 50 talked about everything from his new STARZ original series ‘Power‘, to his now viral first pitch, Animal Ambition and the G-Unit reunion.
His witty replies earned him a lot of reddit gold, not that he really needs it. Peep some highlights below.
What’s the craziest story you have from being on tour?
+ The craziest. Wow, I remember on the Massacre tour I had my young homie on the road. I had this new energy so I was looking at girls like “Oh you can’t get that.” I come out my room see whats up to find my homie locked out his room tryin to hide in his wifebeater and no underwear. He had left the girl in his room to go get condoms and got locked out. I put his ass on punishment for a week. He had to sleep on the couch. No girls after the shows.
Yo $0.50 . . . what happened on that pitch?
+ I have a skeletal muscle injury on my left shoulder from excessive masturbation so take it easy lol.
Hey man, what made you want to accept Bitcoin payment for your new album?
+ Stay with times. Technology is what’s changing the business, gotta get with it. I take money no matter if it’s coins or dollars.
1. From the recent G-Unit reunion are there any chances of The Game being involved? Also what was it like to preform with everyone again?
2. How’s the relationship with Em, any new projects you guys are working on?
3. You’ve always been very business minded in your career is there any advice you would give someone who wants to start their own brand or company?
+ 1. Not a chance. Feels good to be back on stage with them again. Couple of them gotta get in shape again they get tired lol.
2. I am gonna go to his show see him soon in London.
3. Because of the internet. Do it independently. You have access to things we didn’t. I had to hustle bootlegers. Chief Keef is in his grandma living room doing it.
What made you decide to turn this from a pre-album mixtape into a full album?
+ A mixtape would have “previously released” music. Animal Ambition was all original. If you put music out and call it a mixtape, it’s not under the same scrutiny. I felt strong enough about it. It’s quality.
Biggest regret of your career? How long are you planning to make music?
+ I’ll prolly make music longer than I’m supposed to. Like a fighter who doesn’t know when to retire lol. I just love doing it.
What was your favourite TV show as a kid?
+ The Benny Hill show. He was an idiot. Really funny. And Dukes of Hazzard cause of the girl with the short shorts.
Hey 50, what would you say is your favorite book and why?
+ The 50th Law. Because you can’t be afraid of being successful. You gotta have enough in you to be as successful as you want to be.
Hey 50, gotta be one of the funniest guys on Twitter. What person in the industry has the best sense of humor?
+ Fabolous is pretty funny @myfabolouslife Check him out.
Iggy Azalea’s booty: Real or no?!!!
+ Next time I see her I’ma squeeze it and find out for you ok. I will report back to you shortly lol.
I want to get rich but I have reservations about dying, what should I do? Also what’s your favorite most expensive food/least expensive food?
+ Focus on getting rich, you gonna die anyway. Let’s live good. Thats what Animal Ambition is about: Prosperity. Philippe Chow; the shit is expensive for no reason.
What’s the first thing you bought after you “made it big”?
+ My grandmother a car. It was important to me because she took care of me when I couldn’t take care of myself.
