50 Cent puts in work for his label, G-Unit, but he also works in the gym. HipHopDX recently spoke with 50 Cent about what motivates him in the gym and what he listens to while working out.
“While working out, you can catch Mobb Deep in my playlist as well as [Eminem],” 50 Cent says.
In March 2014, 50 spoke with HipHopDX about health in Hip Hop. At the time, he said the following: “There seems to be no health conscience regimens in Hip Hop with all the drugs and alcohol circulating,” 50 Cent said at the time. “Look at all these guys out here with the Al Bundy guts [laughs]!
“Generally in America, obesity is an ongoing issue,” 50 added. “You have guys who had successful projects such as Biggie and Pun—they were very talented artists but did not discipline themselves enough physically—so they had to pick up the slack in other areas.”
Other emcees, including Joell Ortiz and Immortal Technique were also a part of this roundtable discussion about health. To read the roundtable discussion, click here.
