50 Cent has recently set down with Lil Wayne on Young Money Radio to talk about Pop Smoke, Nicki Minaj, Meek Mill, Eminem and more.
“Being in connection to Em, I say this shit openly, right. I don’t think you sell 13 million records without Eminem. Because that connection makes them understand that you understand how they fit into the culture. When they see Em, they see someone that actually grew… hip-hop culture is Black music, forget about it. Everybody around him is African-American, Proof and Denaun and everybody that’s part of D12. And he comes up and he’s that fucking good, it goes OK, I see where I fit.”
“For me, on my journey, it was like, ‘You like hip-hop? Why? Who do you like?’ And they go, ‘I like Em.’ It was their first answer. So if you say you like me after, I can see why you got turned on to me considering I’m down with Em and Dre. Dre would make the credibility in Em as a foundation. That connection would mean credibility. This guy’s from N.W.A.”
