“I don’t have bad intentions for Floyd,” the G-Unit General tells XXL. “I don’t want to see him lose. I don’t go to sleep and wake up like, ‘I hope you f–king lose, stupid.’ No, I already got past that when I said what I said. I’m already done dealing with that right there.”
Despite saying he’s done feuding with the boxer, 50 also elaborated on why he’s mocked Mayweather’s past relationship with model Shantel Jackson, who is now with Nelly.
“I don’t understand how you get to that point and it still be so f–ked up with the girls and sh-t like that,” he says. “There is no woman that I f–ked with that I wasn’t finished with before I finished the situation, since I had been successful. I don’t lose people to another person.”
50′s been trolling Mayweather all year, even dissing the fighter’s literacy, which is at least part of the reason he’s been called “The Ultimate Troll.”
“Eminem gave me the shot that I needed at a point where he was so influential that there was nobody more influential than him,” 50 explains. “I don’t have value for a lot of the relationships that I developed coming up on this journey, but Eminem is the guy. He’s the one. He’s been consistent with me the entire time and I love him to death.”
Fif and Em were echoing these same sentiments when the spoke with MTV in 2012.
“I can’t accept constructive criticism from someone if I’m not sure what their intentions are,” 50 said at the time. “But when someone’s been in my corner my entire musical career — I’ll say this, Dre’s done wonderful things for me in my career, but the idea of working with 50 Cent came from Eminem.”
Speaking of Dr. Dre, 50 also describes the multi-billion dollar Beats/Apple deal “phenomenal” in the XXL interview. In the piece, Fif says he was instrumental in building the Beats/Apple relationship after securing a product placement deal with Apple for the “P.I.M.P.” music video.
“That’s the first time they ever did that and they did it because I convinced them that I could sell an iPod,” 50 says. “From there, Jimmy and Steven built a good relationship.”
50 Cent and his reunited G-Unit crew are now prepping the release of their upcoming project,The Beast Is G-Unit, a follow-up to their recent EP, The Beauty Of Independence.
