G-Unit leader 50 Cent is known for dishing out his own tips to listeners but this week he revealed some personal advice Grandpa Jackson gave him.
According to Fif, his grandfather told him to embrace new things, especially change.
“I talk to my grand father he made some profound statements. SMSaudio,” Fif tweeted September 27th.
“He told me not to be afraid of change. In fact I should make changes now while I’m young.”
“He bugged me out with this. He said U will be as successful as the people U speak to for no reason.THINK ABOUT THAT”
“If your talking to someone who doesn’t have any information you will just be going in circles in conversation. SMSaudio”
“Only problem is my best friend is not that bright but he got a good heart. SMSaudio”
“Pound for pound best around. Wait till you here my new music,I got some heat SMSaudio” (50 Cent’s Twitter)
Fif recently explained just how much love he has for his grandparents.
“I love my grandmother, my grandfather,” Fif says when asked who he loves. “She’s the one, my grandmother. Like, my grand daddy, I love him too but he gets mad at me — it’s a different thing with my grandmother. I’ve always had a connection with her. I used to sit there and rub on her foot, her feet and stuff like that — even paint her toenails. Yeah. I can paint a toenail like we in the nail shop. I’ll do that for her because her feet swell up. [laughs] Yeah, she’ll tell you, I’ve been doing it for years.” (“Oprah’s Next Chapter”)
The rap star appears to be experiencing change as of late after revealing his distanced relationship with longtime G-Unit member Tony Yayo.
“I see Yayo all the time. He actually comes through — he’ll pop up. We’ll do that, but away from it when we come home I be busy working on something and they supposed to be doing the music, writing the music,” 50 told Ang. “Now it’s like I think I’ve enabled them. I’ve damaged that by being so close to it that they just go. Their way of dealing with things is not dealing with it so you can have people that work for you who you work for because they’re just waiting for you to do it. Or you don’t say anything and there’s no urgency — I don’t talk to them. We’re still friends, it’s just the relationship is different. We grown – the issues came up where that they feel like it’s hard for them to be the man while I’m around.” (“The Angie Martinez Show”)
Back in May, the hip-hop executive admitted he had not talked to the Unit’s Lloyd Banks in nearly a year.
“He goes through these things where there’s no communication and he goes off and does what he wants, it’s set at that point because I’ve spent marketing dollars so he can go wherever he wants to go and actually go do shows, make money and do other things,” 50 told radio host Big Boy. “At that point, it’s fine for him to move around and go do it by himself. I want them to be individuals and operate on their own away from me, I’m fine with it. … We can get on the phone together, but I haven’t spoken to him. I haven’t spoken to Banks in nine months. But this is not the first time this has happened. He’s a baby. He’s the youngest in the actual G-Unit, he got really rich at 19. Both him and Tony [Yayo] have made over nine million dollars. With [Young] Buck, it was almost eight million dollars.” (Power 106)
