50 Cent Is Surprised That Most Of His Press Isn’t About His Actual Work
50 Cent recently sat down for an interview with GQ, in which he unveiled many things about his career that he finds shocking. From how the photo of Fif at a basketball game with Meryl Streep took over the internet to how the majority of the mogul’s press doesn’t revolve around his actual work, 50 says there are plenty of strange things that have gone down throughout the course of his career.
“The strangest things happen to me in my career,” 50 Cent told GQ. “You know, I’ll go to a basketball game and I’ll sit next to Meryl Streep and it goes everywhere. And, then I go to a baseball game and I throw the pitch, and now there are the funniest clips of my throw out there online. I’m just like “Wow, what’s going on here?” Everything I hear about myself has nothing to do with the music and never focuses on my actual work.”
In the sit down 50 also talks about his work ethic and how he doesn’t waste his time on people who are slow to get the ball rolling on things. “Always assess the company you’re thinking about dealing with. What is their value? I won’t do business with people who aren’t respected. If a person is not focussed on you and is going to work harder with someone else, I don’t care to work with them at all. You need to find people who understand what it means to have a connection. When you see the success of Beats by Dre as an audio company, and you see what the association is with the actual product – that’s the connection I’m talking about! But, some people are snails, and they’re slow to get on board stuff that’s going on so then I need to pass and let them get on outta here.”
