50 Cent has been speaking on many topics, but now he’s got his mind back on his own music. Fif has been working on a variety of projects and working with various other artists. With his Before I Self Destruct album already on the way and a new G-Unit group effort coming soon, he’s got a lot to say.
Recently, 50 made up with Lil’ Kim (for the G-Unit album single, Wanna Lick). How did that come about?
“Once I get into an altercation with someone or we have a misunderstanding, I’d rather leave them over there rather than have them around when they still have those feelings,” 50 told MTV.
That wasn’t the case with Lil’ Kim, though.
“I reached out to her, called her, to see where her head was at…In Kim’s case, it wasn’t me and Kim [who had the real beef]. It was Kim and the man she was with at the time. Later, we was able to actually get together and collaborated. We was able to make something special again with ‘Wanna Lick.’ It’s good. From a female perspective, she can provide an aggressive standpoint and be aggressive for the women while I can be myself and be aggressive from a man’s perspective.”
Jesse Terrero is the director for the new single off of 50‘s Curtis. The new track, “I’ll Still Kill” is going to be the next single, so what is the video going to look like? (Footage from the video shoot below)
“This is big — it’s like ‘Bourne Supremacy’ meets ‘Unleashed.’ I threw out an idea and  enjoyed it,” the director noted.
As for the G-Unit album, 50 noted that they are almost done.
“We gotta work with [Eminem], that’s it…Then we can be done with it. Production-wise, I captured what I needed. But I didn’t want to not have Em’s stamp on it. We probably won’t get his vocals until he’s heard the full body of work and he’s excited about it. Before my work [goes to the public], it has to pass the Eminem test, the Dr. Dre test — it’s a few tests before we push them to the street. That’s why they can expect a higher quality of 50 Cent music than the usual artist,” he said.
Later, he added that his next solo project is still coming together but it may be the last LP 50 turns in to Interscope.
“On my next album, you should expect to not see features [guest appearances] like you saw on Curtis,” he said. “Before I Self Destruct, it’s totally different. That record has a whole ‘nother concept…Plus, it’s my fourth album — it fulfills my record obligation to Interscope Records. I’ll be a free agent.”
