50 Cent Compliments Drake

50 Cent also explains why he released "Hold On" and "Don't Worry About It" at the same time.

50 Cent says that Drake has a particular style of music in which he excels. 

“I think Drake is ill with relationship-based content because that’s what he actually does," 50 Cent says during an interview with Baltimore radio station 92Q Jams. “He does that.”

Earlier this month, 50 Cent said he would like to work with the Canadian artist. "I haven't worked with Drake or Rihanna, and I'd like to work with them," 50 Cent said 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." 

During the 92Q interview, 50 Cent did not cite any other artists he thought were noteworthy. 

“A lot of other artists [got] like one joint,” he said.

On the road to promote his forthcoming Animal Ambition album, which is slated for a June 3 release, the Queens, New York rapper included the song “A Baltimore Love Thing” on his 2005 album, The Massacre.

Animal Ambition is slated to feature the single “Hold On.” 

“It’s certain joints I knew people would relate to them,” 50 Cent says of the cut. “And at the same time, that’s why I put ‘Hold On’ and ‘Don’t Worry About It’ out at the same time because ‘Don’t Worry About It’ has a tempo of what actually is happening at the nightclub environment right now."

      Or maybe they asked him a question and he gave them an honest answer about who's music is inspiring him these days.

    lmao this title is so meaningless. "50 Cent Compliments Drake"....

  • Drake is alright.

    I can't hate on Drake, he's not an African American so I don't exoect him to rap like one, he makes good music with heavy R&B influences so if that's your thing the he's your guy. Perfect music for when you have a girl in your ride but when you with your boys he gets no play, am I lying? Shit you know what it is.

    Hold on,so it's cool for Eminem,Jigga and Diddy to work with Drake but when 50 tries to do the same it's a travesty?y'all must be out your hating ass minds

    • wasd

      it aint cool for nobody to work with drake. em and jigga fans just justified it to themselves by saying they wrecked drake on his own track. diddy has no authenticity or artistic dignity or fans so nobody cares.

      Yo, if fif ain't dissin he trying to get him on a track by complimenting and we know that's not his thing unless he trying to get on a track with him.. That shit is wack, 50 beggin, lol..

      ok thats fine it's just my opinion. AND by the way the "top 5 hardest" thing was just a bit of fun i dont really give a shit about that stuff. ANYWAY, to those who disagree with my top 5 in the game(not including eminem and nas) please state your top 5 in the game (right now, not of all time)i am always interested to hear others opinions and hopefully i can discover some new music as well.

      Duded ur way off, maybe RA the Rugged one

    • um

      ^wow "none of these rappers are good"???? i agree the "hard" bit is a bit corny but how can you call yourself a hip hop fan and say RA the rugged man is not good??? Also kendrick jay rock and joey all go hard and are definitely up there as the best in the game at the moment.

      None of those rappers are good or "hard" and you're corny for making this

  • Seriously...

    I don't wanna seem like a troll, but 50 is clearly slinging HipHopDX big bucks to keep his name on their front page as much as possible right now.

      or maybe his articles get the most comments web traffic so they always make articles about him for every little thing he says

  • facts

    Haters make me laugh, wen 50 says he don't like som1 or he don't like there songs u say he's always starts shit cuz he got an album coming out or u say he's bitter or attention seeking or somshit then wen he says he likes som1 or says he squash a beef u say he's reaching or is desperate lol the haters r the desperate 1s.

      ^^ Youtube views don't mean shit, radio hits is what matters. None of his singles are doing well on the charts. When he put out that song with eminem and adam levine it had like 45 million views on youtube but didn't do shit on the charts so the song just faded away. it's the same with his current music. just because he has a lot of weird stans on the internet, that doesn't mean he's popular in real life. No one cares about this guy in the real world so stop dick riding

    • truer

      Lmao YouTube views r telling a different story all 50's new songs have millions of hits and he's releasing 1 every week. Game is the biggest bipolar snake in the game that stripper hoe wanted to get back in g unit lmao u clowns can't see how stupid u game fans look wen u say game killed g unit cuz y would he want to get back with them. 50 made game look like a hurt girl friend lol. Game is a joke how many times this guy tried to make a label 4, 5 times? Lol now he can only sign to gay ass ymcmb cuz he need like 5 artists on every song he does. I remember seeing game in 50's music video in da club and the guy had not 1 tattoo lmao he is a fake ex stripper even his step dad sed he was a stripper lmao.

    • da truth

      50's career is OVER. Nobody is interested in his wack ass music these days. That's why he wants to collaborate with this Drake faggot, cuz he thinks that gets his sales up lmfao.... 300 Bars and Runnin was the coffin 4 Snitchy Cent haaaaaa!

  • DRAKE

    HELLO EVERYONE....!!!! I am Drake & I just happen to read this Amazing article on HHDX. There is a Reason why I don't want 50 to work with me ....ummm becoz perhaps I will end up givin him Blow-Job & he might loose his street cred coz of my 'SOFTY-AZZ' shit... There is a little bit of Physics behind why they call me "THE SOFTY ASS NIGGA DRAKE" .....that is becoz whenever ;I have Gay Sex with Lil wayne /Birdman ,they slap me on my left Butt Cheek and My Right butt cheek starts performing "SIMPLE HARMONIC MOTION"(& Vice versa)....& and its perfect "NO DAMPING ",there is absolutely no loss of Mechanical Energy during oscillations....so they continue untill Time=Infinity....

    No disrespect but black folks don't know SHIT called LOGIC. Listen, if NO ONE (including you) wanna FESS UP and TELL then how the fuck are the police supposed to know anything and how the fuck are you or anybody else gonna cry about justice? Niggas talk all that snitch stuff when it's another statistic but when it's their family member or their man they wanna cry justice. Look, niggas in LA KNOW Orlando killed 2pac but no one wanna fess up cuz they'll get labelled a snitch. Instead they rather go at Funk Flex or Suge Knight and use them as scape goats and act tough with them on the Internet or via records. How is the police gonna lock any of these criminals up if nobody is fessin up? And then when the feds DO lock niggas up y'all cry "the police is lockin' brothas/rappers up". I feel sorry for african americans, y'all have the most fucked up mentality out in the world, but yet still think it's worse overseas LMAO. I live in both places btw and yes i'm black.

    I wanna hear a record he makes and releases just because he thinks its good, and positive for hip-hop culture. Not because it "has the tempo of what actually is happening at the nightclub environment," or some long marketing explanation. Just do something for the culture that isn't so incredibly calculated.
