50 Cent recently spoke on his stay in the rap game and how his consistency will not allow him to share the same characteristics of a one hit wonder rap artist.
In addition to speaking on his mixtape grind, Fif also pointed out the public's "doubt" which he said is motivation for him to continue making hits.
"You know what happened to me," 50 asked radio personality Mister Cee in an interview. "The doubt. You know there's a shadow of doubt over every artist in between each project. And when they start doubting that I can actually create material, I'm like, 'They forgot?' I can do this at a rapid pace. So now when they done with this tape, I'ma hit 'em again 'cause I feel like it. Now I'ma do it again. I'ma show you it's not a hat trick. I'm not like a one trick pony. I'ma be here. It's gonna be repeatedly, no matter what kind of record you talking about, I can make it. Give me the drums, throw the bass on it, let me snare, give it a little kick or something and we gonna get it going. If I can't say it, I'ma have the singer there to reference." (Hot 97)
50 recently revealed the secrets behind his mixtape strategies.
"It'll be some more records there playing," 50 said in an interview. "Mister Cee plays a lot of that music still, 'Old School At Noon.' I had Cee send me a CD that he thought would be hot to hear. Even some of his favorites, I listen to 'em and production-wise, I wanted them to still meet what the youthful audience feels is hot right now. So some of those records, some of the things they were saying was cool that I could have wrote from that perspective like writing a remix is easy. Like writing a song that already has the context of the song already there is easy for me. Then it's not process, it's just putting the words to the scenario. If you have a production plan but no idea where you're going or what to write, that's when it starts to get difficult. Mixtape material is easy for me. Two days, three days, [I record it]. I know who I'm talking to." (MTV)
Fif's latest mixtape, Forever King, landed online last week and featured a diamond encrusted skull and tribute to Michael Jackson.
Forever King: "I'm Paranoid," "Respect It Or Check It," "Suicide Watch," "Things We Do," "Get The Money," "Funny How time Flies," "If U Leaving, Then Leave...," "Dreaming," "Michael Jackson Freestyle," "London Girl Pt. 2," "Touch Me" and "Put That Work In." (Da Shady Board)
In addition to the new mixtape, the rapper has promised more free music to come for fans.
"I'm pressing the re-start button man," Fif said in an interview. "I need a record deal, anybody that'll sign me? We gonna go to the second mixtape, the next mixtape will be out July 3rd, it's called Forever King, I'll put another one out right after. War Angel, that's out now. I don't care, I just wanna make music. Sometimes I get in pocket, where I'm in a good space creatively and I can write anything. I wrote four records just last night. Like I've been up for almost 43 hours." (Radio Planet TV)
