50 Cent, who has worked with a variety of emcees and singers throughout his career, says there are a few artists he still hopes to collaborate with.
“I haven’t worked with Drake or Rihanna, and I’d like to work with them,” 50 Cent said earlier this week in a Town Hall interview that aired on SiriusXM’s Shade 45. “They’re artists that they do things that I don’t do. It’s a different thing. So we have to find the right song for us to be working with on each other.”
50 Cent’s respect for the Drake and Rihanna is tied to a few elements the New York emcee discussed.
“I don’t think anyone can beat Drake and creating relationship-based content,” 50 said. “And then Rihanna, I think there is a shortage of female solo artists…It’s Beyonce, Rihanna and those other people. That’s the way the shit starting to feel me.”
Beyonce’s name brought up discussion of a potential future collaboration with the singer. However, 50 said he doubts that will come to fruition.
“Hell no, man,” 50 said of a potential upcoming collab with Beyonce. “Jay [Z] is gonna be like, ‘No, no, why would you do that?’ We had a song a long time ago: ‘Thug Love,’ that was like in ’98. That’s cool we got that tape. If we don’t ever do it again, we got that.”
50 Cent is readying the June 3 release of his upcoming album, Animal Ambition. The rapper has released several songs and videos gearing up for the album’s release. One example of the various track releases can be seen and heard on the Trey Songz-assisted “Smoke,” which is available to view on HipHopDX.
