50 Cent Breaks Down Why Drake's 'Relationship' Hip-Hop Couldn't Exist 10 Years Ago

Fif is a fan.

50 Cent and G-Unit made a big cameo at Drake's 2014 OVO Fest concert, and saying that the crowd was pleased to have them would be an understatement. Fif explained that Drizzy put in the call, and he was happy to do it, since he's a fan.

“When Drake writes relationship-based content, his wit, the way he says it, lands in a way that makes it special," 50 told MTV News, quoting his verse from Nicki Minaj's "Only." "It’s a mixture of the now -- you couldn’t write that song 10 years ago.”

"I have the opportunity to take a step back and enjoy things from a fan perspective," he added, explaining that he's been actively watching genres merge over the past few years. "It feels like hip-hop and R&B music are coming together."

"The things artists like Jeremih will say on a record, it's hip-hop content -- the things we said for shock value."

Fif said there's a chance that his upcoming LP Street King Immortal could feature the Toronto rapper, ("If I can get to that area before finishing this album"), and in the meantime Drake will just be out here killing the charts.

After selling almost half a million copies and breaking Spotify records when he debuted If You're Reading This, It's Too Late, Drizzy went on to sell another 99,000 in his third week on the charts.

Chris Brown, who 50 also described as "our generation's Michael Jackson," in the video above, is also making waves on the charts with his own blend of hip-hop and R&B.
