50 Cent Open To Collaboration With Drake

50 has certainly softened. In the latest excerpt from his interview with Rap-Up, we discover that he has no problems in doing a song with Drake. He actually calls him ‘talented’. Read below:


What do you think about Drake?
I don’t really. I guess he’s cool. He has momentum with his music, but the things that he’s able to do are things that I’m not permitted to do ’cause of the perception of me. The aggression in my music is translated the strongest and they expect that from me every time. It kinda works for me and works against me at different points. [Drake’s] a great singer also; we like the part when he starts to sing on the chorus. He just put out a whole R&B song [“Find Your Love”]—like there’s no rap on it, it’s just an R&B record. That is what Kanye West was permitted to do with 808s & Heartbreak, to make a complete love song or an R&B record. I won’t be permitted to do that because they expect me to kill someone on the song. They just want that from me because I’ve had that type of energy in my actual experience and they feel like it’s special or authentic in some way when I offer that.

Would you want to do an R&B record?
Not an R&B record, but just music that has those melodies in it. I probably wouldn’t perform the singing portion of the songs, but to make an album like that, yeah, it would be cool.

Are you open to a collaboration with Drake?
Yeah, why not? He’s talented. I ain’t taking nothing away from his talent and Kanye too. We never had any issues with me saying they weren’t talented artists. It was more of a conscious decision to compete [with Kanye] to stir up some energy.

    I hope the bridges aren’t burnt.

    I think Ye could cook some crack for 50. Ye has said in the past he always wanted to create material for him and 50’s influence on Ye is obvious when he quotes his material on songs.

    50 said he found a place where he could be more mature and it looks like he is.

    Like I said before the problem with 50 is that he limits himself and the only reason people would criticise him for creating an R&B record is because he criticised Ja Rule for creating music like that.

  • I agree with ya james. I have high hopes from 50’s next..
