50 Cent Says Nas, Rakim & The Notorious B.I.G. Influenced "Animal Ambition"

50 Cent also discusses "Animal Ambition" and Prodigy's rapping prowess.

When he began being influenced heavily by Hip Hop, 50 Cent says that it was important to have a distinct style of Rap.

“It was more important that you had your own style than you being able to master a version of Rakim or a version of another artist’s style,” he says in a recent interview with Vibe. “Nobody does that better than [Rakim]. Even with new content that flow is still his flow. Nas is [also] one of those guys…he has his own. Even if some people make comparisons that was just Queensbridge, man. That period for me…Mobb Deep, Prodigy is in his own class in my mind." 

These emcees provided an influence for his work on the upcoming Animal Ambition album, according to Vibe. 50 Cent says the upcoming collection is also about the success he's experienced in the entertainment industry and compares it to subject matter that another New York emcee once rhymed about. 

Animal Ambition is about prosperity and the effects of it,” he says. “A lot of people think about how successful you are doing when it comes to prosperity, but the envy connected to it like, ‘Damn, niggas wanna want to stick me for my paper.’ That was [The Notorious] B.I.G. rapping after Ready To Die when he actually made some money and felt new energy from people that he didn’t feel before with the success he had at that point...It’s going to be really interesting because some of [Animal Ambition] is written from a slightly warped perspective...But it’s all about prosperity.” 

Animal Ambition is 50 Cent's first album following the New York rapper's split from Shady Records/Aftermath Entertainment/Interscope Records. In February, 50 Cent and G-Unit Records signed an exclusive worldwide distribution and services agreement with Caroline/Capitol/UMG.

    Just give it the fuck up. J Cole will never be on drake's level and pitbull's a dope pop artist. Timber's no.1 and drake grew up in the streets (suburbs are the same thing). A tv paying job isn't the same as being in movies (Drake will be a terrific actor) and HOWGH is a great tribute to love songs. Not everyone will be into gangster rap, hence pop selling more than hiphop.

The streets and the suburbs are nothing alike. because TV jobs are well-paid jobs, no matter where it's being broadcast. You get paid more as an actor than you would be if you had a regular job. HOWGH is a terrible love song.

      How is his music hiphop? Where did I deny that pitbull makes dance pop (dope at it too, that's why timber went to no.1). The suburbs are the streets and playing wheelchair jimmy isn't that high paying of a job. If it were movies than yes he would be richer than diddy. HOWGH is a tribute to those love songs form the 80's. Not everyone wants to hear gangsta rap.

      Because J Cole makes HIP-HOP music. Pitbull does not make hip-hop music, he makes dance-pop music.

      Pitbull makes terrible dance-pop music, not hip-hop music. J Cole makes hip-hop music. Drake's songs aren't great. SFTB is a lie because Drake never was at the bottom, he's from the suburbs of Toronto and was on a TV show when he was a teen. HOWGH is terribly sung, lazily-written, and sounds like 80s pop crap. Both songs are terrible. POM sold 750,000 units so far.

      Pitbull never sings yet isn't classified as hiphop. Why else is j cole hiphop?" Drake just happens to make great songs that are marketable. How is SFIB based on a lie? How is HOWGH terrible?

    • Anonymous

      You got everything backwards. Cole is more hip-hop than Drake, Cole at least raps in all of his songs unlike Drake. Talent does NOT push sales. Drake is more marketable and poppier, has nothing to do with talent. Drake's radio singles suck ass; SFTB is lazily-written, repetitive trash based on a lie and HOWGH is a terrible pop ballad pandering to mainstream radio. I did listen to Drake's album and it's weak. POM's sales have been updated and it's not close to platinum.

    • Anonymous

      How is Cole hiphop? Drake fits hiphop more (he's a pop/R&B artist too but dope unlike J Cole). Talent DOES push sales unless one's poorly promoted. In this case, both had huge promotion but drake won out. Simple as that. Drake's radio singles are dope. I bet you don't even listen to his album. His album cuts are better than what's on radio. POM sales figures have not been updated in a while.

    • Anonymous

      No. Cole is not pop, he's hip-hop and Jay Z and Missy Elliott are hip-hop artists. Talent doesn't push sales at all and Drake is not more talented than Cole. Drake sells more because he makes generic, radio-friendly pop music. POM is not gonna be platinum at all, its sales stalled.

    • Anonymous

      1. Cole is pop, working with Jay Z and Missy Elliot, both pop artists. I'm not saying sales make you a better artist. Talent pushes more sales and drake's more talented than cole. That's why drake sold more. POM about to hit platinum though.

      Cole is a hip-hop artist, he makes hip-hop music (BTW, Miguel's an R&B artist and many rappers have worked with R&B artists).

    50 is relevant on blogs when someone elsess name is attatched to it so he always mentions people like Em, Diddy, Ross, Stoute, Nas. He used to put people's names in raps to get buzz and now he puts people's names on blog headlines to get a buzz.

    When 50 was at his peak he boardroom-bullied other rappers and tried to damage their careers, one instance of this is how he got Styles P pushed back and caused Styles P to get dropped by Interscope. This is audio of 50 bragging about his pushing Styles P back and bragging how he could also have them (d-block) pushed back on Koch. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_Bf51r5oXk&feature=youtube_gdata_player

      He didn't push him back, he never had that kind of power. 50 Cent has a tendency to mislead people, he's been doing this since he came out. He said he was shot 9 times, but was actually SHOT AT 9 times and shot 3 times, he said he made 400 Mill on vitamin water and he didn't even make half that, he makes up lies about sleeping with people like Mya who don't even know him....I could go on. Never believe a word this man says.

A botched opportunity, all that infighting instead of unity, the South said fuck it lets get this money and they aint looked back since. And just like 50 was a cancer to NY unity in his city he was a cancer to unity in his own crew and the infighting helped ruin his label. It feels good to see the new breed of NY emcees showing love for each other and promoting unity instead of animosity. Long Live A$AP!!!

    These clowns are saying 50 Cent is more successful than Nas? lol 50's album has been pushed back for 5 years now, he's on an indie, his books flopped, his movies are straight to DVD, no one gives a shit about his headphones, his clothing line/sneakers flopped, his reality show was cancelled, the artists he has signed are ass. What is 50 doing that makes him so "successful"? Because from what I can see, everything he's doing is flopping. This is why he's trying to get back into music and get on TV so bad. No one gives a shit about him anymore and his money is running low from bad investments and trying to maintain that big ass house he can't sell. lol Don't believe that celebrity net worth bullshit, Curtis is not doing well for himself. Nas has an endorsement deal with Hennessy, his own sneaker store, his own clothing line, he owns real estate, he's on a major label, and is considered to have the best rap album and be the best rapper by hiphop enthusiasts. Nas has sustained a career from fucking 1992 to 2014. 50 Cent lasted from 2003 to 2005 than fell the fuck off. Don't you ever in your life compare old wood face to Nas. Nas is a legend, 50 Cent was just a passing fad.

      You cant get away from the stench of his products, they are just so cheesy that you dont want to associate with them which is a lot like his music, its the stigma of the cheesiness that makes his brand so corny that rappers attempt to avoid him. His brand reminds me of something 13 year old kids in foreign countries think is cool because itts imported into their country in cheap gaudy packaging but it's dated and behind a language barrier so they think its hip but its really outdated and trashy.

Nas is a legend who after two decades and 10 albums still has the major label backing and loyal fans, when people give you their Top 5 they almost always mention Nas. 50 is more like a Nelly or a Ja Rule, a guy that had a huge few albums then fell off as soon as their fans reached puberty.

I dont think his fanbas is that large because his last album didnt do Doo Doo compared to his others and none of his singles got burn. If he had a huge fanbase Im sure his label would have dropped his album instead of dropping him. It seems like he has more fans than he does because his fans are the Pruane2Forever types who live online and fight for their hero because he did videos with Keenan Cahill and dated their mom Chelsea Handler. The beginning of the "Pass the Patron" video explains this congame in detail.
