After announcing that his Street King venture has fed more than 2.5 million people, 50 Cent also recently announced that his album is completed. The G-Unit emcee phoned in to his own G-Unit Radio to speak about these two parts of his life. He also shed some light on why he's "growing in different areas" and how he credits the growth to traveling.
"2.5 million," he said when asked how many people he's fed through his Street King venture. "Every time they purchase SK [energy drink], a child is being fed. I went to Africa. When you see it up close, it's a whole different thing from when you see it in commercials. You'll be affected by it."
According to 50, his goal is to feed a billion people through this venture.
"If just one percent of business was given to charitable organizations, we would alleviate all of extreme poverty around the world," he noted.
50 also made sure to explain how his growth has come about.
"You can see I'm growing in different areas. I've been exposed to different things. I've traveled. I've been able to interact with people of different ethnic backgrounds. It's given me a different insight and perspective on different things."
Moving into music, the G-Unit's general explained that he is finished with his album, though some changes may take place soon. He also added that he feels the timing needs to be right for this album.
"I'm actually, I feel like I'm done with the album. I'm going through the mixing process. It may change, a couple songs may not sound as good to me once they're all the way mixed and I'll feel like I have to replace it with something. Music, to me, it marks time. A classic is timing. I haven't made a song that wasn't up to standard, when you listen to, you say, 'This is garbage.' You just have to be in the mood for it, maybe. The timing might've been bad during the release for some of the actual songs but it's not necessarily a record that you're saying, 'I can't listen to this. What is this? Turn it off.'"
