50 Cent Names Both Wiz Khalifa & Young Jeezy As Two Of His Current Favorites

50 Cent speaks on his new film with Robert De Niro, says he enjoys sitting back and being a fan of music.

During an interview with Los Angeles’ Power 106 (which was posted on HipHop-n-More via DiverseHipHop), Queens rapper 50 Cent spoke on his numerous endeavors which include everything from his recently released, Dr. Dre-produced record "New Day" to a new film that features both Fifty and famed actor Robert De Niro.

The rapper tapped into his sarcastic side as he spoke on "New Day" collaborator Dr. Dre after the Power 106 deejays jokingly referred to the producer and Alicia Keys as “up and comers.”

“You know I only work with new artists,” said 50 Cent. “I wanna make sure everybody get they start out the gate. So this new guy comes to the studio, Dr. Dre, tells me he’s got a couple of beats. I said, ‘Let me check you out kid.’”

When asked about the artists he’s currently looking out for 50 Cent named both Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa and Atlanta wordsmith Young Jeezy. Fifty also revealed that he plans on working with Jeezy in the near future.

“I like Wiz, you know I worked with him on that 'Telescope' joint. I been listening to some of the stuff Jeezy been putting out. I’mma work with him soon. We gonna get together and do something. I like a lot of the music. It’s fun when you take a chance to step back and appreciate it from an actual fans perspective. It’s cool,” the rapper explained.

While the rapper seems quite focused on his music career and his upcoming album Street King Immortal, he’s still very much intent on maintaining his acting career as well. 50 Cent’s most recent flick, Freelancers, stars Robert De Niro and will be released in theaters this Friday (August 10).

“It’s cool. I had an opportunity to meet him on a project that we never actually did together called Streets Of Blood,” said 50 Cent when asked about meeting Robert De Niro. “We didn’t end up doing that project. He passed on it cause he had some other things come up, more exciting for him at the time. And I ended up doing that project with Val Kilmer and Sharon Stone. And then it came full circle and we actually worked on Righteous Kill. You see during that project I got him to do the cover of Vibe. He don’t have to do press, he’ don’t have to do none of that. And he looked out and went and did that so we had fun there doing that and now it’s Freelancers.”

    I don't know the whole story or all the facts about who produced "New Day", but if Dre added his own drums or even just mixed the track, it's probably his because he goes a long way to do what you think is the smallest thing - longer than probably any producer. He has ears for sounds dogs can't even hear. It may be Swizz's song before given to Dre but even with that Kush song that DJ Khalil did, he said in an interview he and Dre did separate mixes of it, and Dre's was extremely different from his and obviously a hundred times better, and Dre didn't take credit as the producer for it either. I know 50's camp wants to put Dre's name on anything to get people thinking about "In da Club" and associating the days when 50 dominated, but then again, Dre doesn't do much musically these days except take other people's music and make it his own by adding, mixing, and engineering exactly what he wants. You can argue it all day long but IMO that makes it Dre's since more often than not, that same joint would just not be the same had it not been given to Dre in the first place.

    There's room for 50 to comeback..believe it or not, ALOT of people still have respect for him..and i know he's capable of making some nice music..it's not like he was Master P, pimping the game, he could flow..for those of you that doubt..go listen to "Many Men"

  • Tarik

    You can hate on 50 all you want. He has one of the best albums of all time "Get Rich or Die Trying"...still a classic..i admit, he messed up when he was on top, being too arrogant, but it's the rap game, who isn't arrogant...i don't feel Jay Z anymore..his lyrics are still tight, but i just don't feel him

    • God Of Hip Hop

      You Anonymous niggas just mad 50 did Jay-Z's career in 4 years LOL. By the way, GRODT is certified a classic by many hip hop heads and the hip hop community. Just like Reasonable Doubt & The Blueprint for Jay-Z, don't take credit away from respected Forbez Top 5 rappers. 50 AND Jay have classics so stop the BICKERING! They are both talented respected hip hop artists.

    • Anonymous

      Even putting Jay and 50 in the same sentence, completely aside from their business acumen, is an unreal insult to Jay.

    i like jeezy and all but did this article really just call him a wordsmith?

    I don't get why 50 Cent and his camp is pretending Dre made that 'New Day' song...It was Swizz Beats and Alicia Keys who made it...Dre just added the extra bits and pieces, he didn't "produce" shit.

    • Jon

      Swizz could have sold the beat to Dre, who then added his touches. Similar to "No Diggity" which Dre originally produced but sold the beat to Teddy Riley, who was fully credited.

    • Anonymous

      Well, technically it should read "co-produced by dr dre" then.

    • Anonymous

      You're right but technically you're wrong. Him "adding the extra bits and peices" is something is part of the production too and is something you can crave getting credit for.
