This was long overdue. Last evening, 50 Cent visited the Hot 97 studio to sit down with Funkmaster Flex for a tell all interview.
50 talked about his situation with Lloyd Banks in detail for the first time, why Jimmy Iovine doesn’t like him, his decision to leave Interscope Records, why his big songs like ‘My Life’ and ‘Major Distribution’ didn’t do well because of Interscope, recent confrontation with Steve Stoute, chopping it down with Nas recently at the Beacon theater, possibility of surprises during his set at Summer Jam, Action Bronson’s music, issues with Diddy (comes from problems around Ma$e’s transfer from Bad Boy to G-Unit), thoughts on Troy Ave (says he hopes he makes it to the top), relationship with Sha Money XL, Jay Z vs. Drake tension, time when he met Funk Flex for the first time, his early days at Columbia Records, ghostwriting for other rappers when he was coming up and much more.
Around the 1 hour mark, 50 reveals that he ghostwrote for Puff Daddy back in the day and he also LL Cool J & Amerie’s ‘Paradise‘. Wow.
UPDATE: Now with video.
