50 Cent recently spoke with GQ regarding his life after reportedly spending a month with the publication’s Zach Baron.
GQ has revealed excerpts of the interview, which is slated to appear in newsstands today (May 27) as part of its June issue.
Regarding Puff Daddy, 50 Cent reportedly says, “He’s a sucker.”
Beyond Puff Daddy, 50 Cent also speaks about why he decided to leave Interscope Records this year. “When people couldn’t care less about you actually being successful,” 50 says. “You can feel it.”
50 also details why his relationship with Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks has soured.
“I enabled these guys,” he says. “I wouldn’t have been a friend if I didn’t help them. But helping them hurt them. Maybe I was paying them to be friends.”
His bond with Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo isn’t the only one that has become strained. 50 Cent says his bond with his son has also suffered.
“Me and my son, we don’t have a relationship anymore,” 50 Cent says. “It’s based on his mom. He’s adopted her way of thinking. I don’t have anything negative around the concept of kids.”
Recently, 50 Cent referred to Puff Daddy’s “Big Homie” single as “garbage.” “Puff’s still out there,” 50 Cent said. “He don’t even need a record. ‘Cause he don’t got one. Like you know Puffy ain’t got no music that you wanna hear. That ‘Big Homie’ shit is garbage. I’m a keep it all the way real with you. Because the guy says ‘Don’t worry about if I write my rhymes, I write checks.’ And then sings to you.”
50 Cent also recently addressed Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks, saying that “some people…are like milk, they have expiration dates.”
“I don’t need an explanation,” 50 said at the time. “I don’t really. I think that my personal life, portions of it are actually supposed to be personal. The actual life as an entertainer is a whole other portion of your life. My son—I haven’t received an invitation. When he graduated I was in Budapest on a movie with Melissa McCarthy, Jude Law, and Jason Statham. I think at some points the reason why it actually comes out is because his mom is going to TMZ. I wish she’d find someone so she could leave me alone.”
