50 Cent Says Chief Keef Didn't Follow His Advice

50 Cent reveals why he was drawn to helping Chief Keef, says the teen rapper ultimately "didn't listen."

When Queens rapper 50 Cent expressed his interest in working with teen emcee Chief Keef, many were taken aback by Fifty’s decision to serve as what seemed to be a musical mentor to the Chi-Town rapper. During a recent interview with Hartford, Connecticut’s HOT 93.7, 50 Cent spoke specifically on attempting to help Keef and the reason why he chose to do so.

According to 50 Cent, due to his own experiences he felt he knew exactly what moves had to be made to help Keef in his music career, but despite his expertise, the rapper “didn’t listen.”

“I actually was attracted to the Chief Keef thing. Cause I was like, ‘I can help him. I know what to do. Just do this.’ He didn’t listen…He’s a man…So, when I talk to him, [he] don’t have to take it. I’m not his father. That’s his business. It’s certain things that I look at and go ‘If you play your hand this way, you can be good. If you go them other ways, you gon’ have a hard time.’ And them bumps in the road they’re there for you. It’s not like you exempt.”

Similarly to 50 Cent, who notoriously feuded with everyone from Rick Ross to Ja Rule, Chief Keef has also found himself in an unfavorable light due to issues with fellow artists including Windy City lyricist Lupe Fiasco and pop star Katy Perry. That’s likely one of a handful of career similarities that may have led to 50 Cent referring to the Chief Keef project as his own.

Fifty even offered up advice to artists like Keef as he spoke on the evolution that can take place once an artist stops being conscious of their actions and surroundings.

“Chief Keef’s project is the 50 Cent project,” he revealed. “It’s the same project. In the beginning, he’s completely influenced by the environment. That’s the nightmare. He’s gonna go through what actually happened. And he’s gonna get bumped around. If you catch on and you start to actually say, ‘What’s the [roof] of the situation? I want to be at the highest point I can actually take it in this actual situation.’ And you stop being conscious of your actions and things that’s going on around you then you can actually evolve into something significant.”

    "actually, actually, actually..." that's 50 favorite word in interviews! He actually think he sounds smart, but he actually needs to expand his vocabulary because he actually sounds retarded!

      LOL another essay writing bitch! no i dont read that shit, i read the first sentence now im gonna forget about you!

      You said "aint nobody got time to read a 600 word essay", but your ass is obviously checking the comments section on here, and I bet the comments you DO read add up to WAY more than 600 words, so miss me that bullshit.. And if you only read the first 6 words, why the fuck would you say "cool story" and how the fuck can you assume it was about "how hood I am"? Fuckin dummy.. It's not about how hood I "AM", I was saying that despite being FROM the hood, you don't have to let it dictate how intelligent you can be. And why the fuck would the next dude say "who cares about 50's vocabulary", and then mention how stupid Rick Ross' tweet was?? Yeah Rick is just as ignorant, but if you don't care about one, why do you care about the other? This dicussion wasn't about 50 Cent vs. Rick Ross! As soon as yall Stan's hear somebody criticize your favorite rapper, you get butt hurt and gotta criticize their rival even when it aint got nothing to do with them!! SMH..

      cool story bro, i read the first 6 words then stopped, aint nobody got time to read your 600 word essay on how hood you are

      LMAO!! I'm BLACK you fuckin idiot! And I grew up in the hood you dummy! My father was a drug addict (plus my grandfather, and alot of my aunts and uncles are addicts and drunks), even my grandmother sold dope and did a one-year bid, my step-dad was a Crip and a convict, his son (my step brother) is doing life, one of my cousins just went back for the 3rd time to do another 5-10, 2 of my cousins just came home (one did 3, the other did 11) and the one that did 11 just got killed, my uncle is a pimp, my cousins are pimps, Bloods and drug dealers, and my brothers got felony records! (The only charge I ever caught was possesion of controlled substance, and I got off with a few months in drug court, but I had my had my ups and downs when I was homeless and sold weed from an abandoned house nigga!) I could go on and on!! Having said that, my dad and my mom, (despite our environment), graduated from college and raised me and my brothers to value education. (I listened a bit more than my brothers, but they are equally intelligent). I went to the best school in my city, NOT because of a "silver spoon", but because I passed the entrance exam to get in, and I had good grades! Nigga, I was one of the bummiest people in my school because my parents were working class people living in the hood! But you don't need to go to a "good school" to have a vocabulary beyond an 8th grade level you faggot!! Nigga, Frederick Douglass escaped SLAVERY in the 1800's and taught HIMSELF how to read!! So how the FUCK can you make an excuse for a nigga to be ignorant in the fuckin 21st century??? Not only that, this nigga been rich for 10 FUCKIN YEARS MUTHAFUCKA!! How the fuck can you argue that he can't have a vocabulary beyond a fuckin grammar school level?? You can go to any inner city school in AMERICA and find under-privileged black kids that are smarter than this nigga!! So the next time yo faggot ass jump to conclusions, check yaself and use your fuckin brain BITCH!!

    I think its easy for 50 to be wise now that hes living comfortably, but clearly he is way smarter and adjusted for the real world than Keef. I like "Bitches love sosa" but that kid is not going to be the next 50, giving advice to the new new comers. Dead or in jail

    "he knows keef, they work for the same label and 50 gives great interviews, that's why they go to him. they wanna know what 50 thinks about keef's recent jail problems" Keef didn't even show up for his video shoot with 50 Cent, so now they're best friends? lol People go to him because they know his past track record of finding new and inventive ways of subliminally taking credit for someone's career/success, or dissin them for publicity purposes. The only people who "know" Keef well are those who actually hang with him 24/7, so there's no need for Curtis to pretend he can relate to him. He can't, so just say I wish him luck and move on.

    fuck outta here with your advice ! you're probably one of the biggest failure in hip-hop alongside ja rule and mc hammer. nobody forgot how your career crashed down after your second LP. therefore don't be surprise if even a 17 years old crack head don't follow your "advice"

      are you mad because he's making moves and alot of money outside of rap??? He really is set for life without the rap money! Look at all the endorsements he received after his "career crashed" after the Massacre album! If he told you how to get endorsements after his rap career "crashed", you would heed that advice to get rich too you stupid fuck nigga! GTFOH!

    50, ask yourself this - Aside from your bank balance, does Sosa want to be like you? Answer - NOOOOOO!! Why would he want to follow in the footsteps of someone who has spent roughly 7 years making himself totally irrelevant to the point where the only time you're even in the news is when you mention someone who is poppin like Keef??

    • Rap Fan

      Of course Keef would like to be like 50. Keef likes to flash money all the time and 50 is in the top 5 richest rappers. Also, 50 is irrelevant because he still gets alot of hits online and news stories. Basically he is set for life and his kids. I am sure Keef would like that but he is uneducated and ignorant, thats why he doesnt listen. Sometimes it seems like Keef is retarded...

      Chief was NEVER relevant. He had one hit internet song (not even a hit on the charts) and was forgotten about the next month, not that many people cared about him to begin with.

    • Anonymous

      Even if 50 is irrelevant in hip hop today, he's been through what chief keef is going to go through. Why not take the chance to learn from someone who's willing to mentor you, and who's been successful. You don't have to go through the hard times to learn. It's possible to avoid those times by learning from other people's mistakes.

      Yes because going around shooting ppl with a water gun n going to juvi over dumb shit plus taking a baseball player from his city's name as his is relevant.
