G-Unit leader 50 Cent has shared his outlook on the music he's put out over the past decade and said wack records should never be linked to him.
Fif believes after over a dozen G-Unit projects and mixtapes, his music has always been quality.
"I'm so into my new album I'm going to make it hater proof. Undeniable music I don't believe iv ever made wack music.," 50 tweeted Friday (March 11).
"I think people only want to hear certain things from me. Don't get mad at me cause I'm a artist I'm gonna do all kinda a music." (50 Cent's Twitter)
Last fall, 50 spoke on his forthcoming Before I Self Destruct follow-up album.
"What [fans] are hearing are just my ideas," Fif said in an interview. "This is my Detox album, it may take ten years and you gonna wait on it until it comes but when it do come, it'll be perfect. I recorded 20 songs to a whole different album concept before I put that on the side and said I wanna do this, what I'm doing now. I'ma write until I feel like I have something perfect. I feel like music marks time and it's important to put out the 'right' sound for that 'right' moment. Like my Curtis album, people said my Curtis album wasn't good and it had 'Ayo Technology,' number one record on the album. It had 'I Get Money,' 'I Still Kill' featuring Akon, Robin Thicke, so many hit records on the actual album, I'm like, 'What are you listening to?' But I guess I look at it and say it's timing...There's nobody in hip-hop that possesses the ability to do what I do. I'm more exciting than these people. I genuinely believe that..." (MTV)
Recently, 50 said he would take a different approach with completing collaborations for his album-in-progress.
"I made collaborations [but] this time, I actually just wanted to create things and see if anything came out that I felt like otherartists should get on," Fif explained in an interview. "My previous albums, I went in the studio with them -- this time I'm making music and then trying to find ways to put them on the records. It's more me even when it's a collaboration. It's them fitting into what I felt was right now as opposed to us making a total compromise." (Maximo TV)
