G-Unit leader 50 Cent has spoken on his admiration for singer Susan Boyle's record-selling abilities and explained why it could be beneficial to spark a beef with her.
Merely offering jokes during an interview with television host Craig Ferguson, Fif also briefly spoke on his past feuds with Fat Joe.
"Nobody really knows him," Fif said about Joey. "I'm mad that you're mentioning his name. When's the last time Fat Joe was on your show? [Never], see. And this is why I feel like, he's using me, he's using me, Craig. I feel like I'm on his [radar]. There's almost as much pirated music as there is legitimate music out there. We got really tough competition, now the competition is Susan Boyle. It's worth a shot [starting a feud with her.] [laughs] We'll be places and they'll be like, 'You know 50? He's looking for you.' I probably would [collaborate] with her. I think it's the age, when you're like 48, 50 years-old, those people in that age group are still conditioned to purchase a CD. The younger kids are on a computer, you know that." ("The Late Late Show")
Last December, Fif expressed his interest in recording with Boyle.
"Susan Boyle is hot right now." Fif told the Mirror. "I got to get her on a track, for real. We'd make a hit. Everyone is talking about her, the lady from 'Britain's Got Talent.' I'm always looking to do something new and she's cool, so I'll ask somebody to let her know. I'd love to take her clubbing, show her around my world. She'd have a great time." (Angry Ape)
Rapper Snoop Dogg has also shown his admiration toward the Scottish hitmaker.
"I told Susan Boyle, 'When you put your record out,' when she sells a few records, come holler at me," Snoop told radio host Chelsea Lately. "We can do a song together. Yeah [I'm a fan] because she was close to getting my record. You know I hold the record in the Guiness Book, I'm the only rapper to come out and debut number one and she was trying to get close to my record so I had to make sure she didn't. Yeah, I like her because she didn't get my record. If you set the studio session up, I'll do that." ("Chelsea Lately")
The singer's I Dreamed a Dream had the biggest first-week sales of 2009 in early December.
