There isn’t too much that 50 Cent hasn’t accomplished musically, but now that the G-Unit boss has a new deal in place, there are a few collaborations that he’d like to knock out.
“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,” he continued.
Right now, neither Drake nor Rih are slated to appear on 50’s upcoming June 3 LP, Animal Ambition, but with guests like Trey Songz, Jadakiss, Styles P and Yo Gotti, Fif has already created a great deal of excitement.
“I don’t think anyone can beat Drake and creating relationship-based content. And then Rihanna, I think there is a shortage of female solo artists,” he shared. “It’s Beyoncé, Rihanna and those other people. That’s the way the sh– starting to feel me.”
Asked if he thought he’d ever work with Beyoncé again, 50 said the chances are slim to none. The two first hooked up back in Bey’s Destiny’s Child days for “Thug Love,” a track that appeared on 50’s unreleased Power of the Dollar LP.
“Hell no, man. Jay is gonna be like, ’No, no, why would you do that?'” 50 joked, mimicking an imaginary conversation between the famous musical couple. “We had a song a long time ago: ’Thug Love,’ that was like in ’98. That’s cool we got that tape. If we don’t ever do it again, we got that.”
