50 Cent suggests that his rival purchased 15,000 of the reported copies.
“Anybody woulda panicked,” he says of the sales figures.
50 Cent says that the release of his The Kanan Tapemixtape signifies how he’s competing with younger artists. The mixtape has more than 240,000 streams and has a silver certification on DatPiff in one day since its release.
“They’re doing everything we did from the start,” he says. “They have hunger. I have discipline. When I focus, I can get to that point where I’m creating something that we can all appreciate.”
50 Cent then points out “Feel Like Phil” from Jeremih’s Late Nights: The Album as a moment that exemplifies his point. On the track, the Chicago singer references “Down on Me” that he did with the G-Unit rapper: “I just did a song with 50 Cent, don’t give a fuck about a nigga’s two-some.”
