hey yall i aint been behind a computer with internet since thursday so I thought Id share some of the emails cluttering my inbox... heres a 50 cent interview where he talks about the cut of hand incident and various beefs... dubcnn.com: You're about to drop your 2nd album, The Massacre. Are you positive it will be able to come close to Get Rich Or Die Tryin'? 50: Oh man, I feel like it's better than the first album! I put alot more details into it, I got a chance to sit back and see what was effective already. I mean I felt like I had my finger on the pulse of what's goin' on. I've had my first releases off my record company, G-Unit Records had the success they've been having. Like Beg For Mercy sold like 3.5 million worldwide, Lloyd Banks scanned over 2 million records, Young Buck is platinum, and Game debuted Nr. 1, sellin' 580,000 records his first week! dubcnn.com: How many songs is Dr. Dre producing on there? 50: Well Dre produced 3 records. dubcnn.com: Who else did you get for production? 50: It's Dre, Eminem, Hi-Tek, Scott Storch, Buckwild, Needlz, JR, Styles, Sha Money, a whole bunch of new producers. It's actually gonna be 20 tracks on this new album. dubcnn.com: What about guest appearances? 50: You know me and Eminem work together good, so me and him worked together. I did a song with Olivia for Candy Shop, first single, and she's the first female with G-Unit. I'm excited about her project, it's actually the next release off G-Unit Records, she should be out in May. And away from that, I have Tony Yayo on 2 records on the album, and at the very end of the album I have a song with Jamie Foxx, me and him collaborated on a song called I Thug You Up, and the last song is a remix to "Hate It Or Love It" with me, Game, Young Buck, Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo. dubcnn.com: There are rumours of tension between you and Game. What's your relationship with him and the rest of the G-Unit? it was said that the relationship was strictly business, and ya'll didn't really get along besides that, and him and Banks ain't talkin' and shit... 50: You know what. I don't know if him and Banks even have a relationship. You know what I mean? They don't communicate. Everybody that's signed to G-Unit Records, isn't gonna be like the guys I grew up with! And Game's situation particularly, he had G-Unit AND Aftermath. He may take his Aftermath direction opposed to everything that I think is lucrative for him. You know? And that causes the confusion, it makes people look at the situation as if it's different, and it is different! Because me and Dre do Game's album, when everybody else is just ultimately workin' to my standards. dubcnn.com: You recently signed a new West Coast artist, Spider Loc. He used to be on Death Row. How did you hook up with him? 50: Yeah Spider. I met Spider for the first time at the video shoot for Shorty Wanna Ride. He came, and he rapped, and I liked his style and I said I'd get back to him, and I did when the opportunity came I had some time! dubcnn.com: Is his album gonna drop after Tony Yayos? 50: Yeah well we're gonna work on it, and get it right. And actually, you know Game is on Aftermath for two years already. So I mean him bein' there for that long, I'm sure there was a point that the wheels startin' spinnin' and they got stuck in the mud creatively. So they brought me in and I kinda pushed him out that mud to get him movin'! dubcnn.com: C-Bo, Yukmouth, Messy Marv and other Bay Area artists have been heavily dissing you on songs. How come you never responded to them? You know what? I ain't never met these people! That's just rap shit. If I interacted with them, and we have a run-in or somethin, and they make me understand why they were sayin' somethin', then I would respond to it. dubcnn.com: But do you listen to any Bay Area HipHop yourself? 50: Yeah I try to... When I get out there I try to pick up as much material as I can so I can hear what's goin' on. dubcnn.com: Kurupt recently dissed you in an interview, saying you're making money off the West Coast. Did you hear about that? 50: Oh yeah? Well, I am! dubcnn.com: What's the status on the DPG-Unit project? What's your relationship with Daz and Snoop? 50: Ah man, my relationship with Snoop couldn't be better! Me and Snoop is cool. dubcnn.com: Cause you know, Daz and Spider have beef, so that would probably interfere with the DPG-Unit project? 50: Oh well then there you have it! Cause I think that DPG-Unit is really just Snoop & 50. You know? So... With Daz, I don't really understand that, that's the first time I heard of that though. dubcnn.com: So are you open to work with up and coming artists? 50: Man, I'm open to work with anybody who's hungry, and they talented. If I find somethin' that is exciting enough to excite me, I'm definitely gonna do it. dubcnn.com: So how can new artists get their music to you? 50: I'll give you a number before I get off the phone. dubcnn.com: Is there any truth to Lil Scrappy signing to G-Unit? 50: Well we're trying to see how possible that is. Lil Scrappy has a deal right now. dubcnn.com: What's the vibe of the new record? Is it very R&B influenced like the first single? 50: My album? *laughs* Candy Shop is probably the lightest song on the album! dubcnn.com: How do you feel your music has evolved, compared to the first record? 50: Oh man, I think... I think a direct relation between the two is difficult because it's so distant. dubcnn.com: What really made you go after Jadakiss & Fat Joe? 50: What really made me go? dubcnn.com: Is it just the Ja Rule situation? 50: Yeah they said some things they wasn't supposed to be saying... dubcnn.com: We're gonna be hearing that Piggy Bank song though? 50: Yeah, you gonna hear it, it's on the record. dubcnn.com: How do you feel about Jadakiss not being allowed to respond because of Jimmy Iovine? 50: THAT'S BULLSHIT! They put that shit on the internet themselves! Yeah, they makin' excuses to the fans for why they not responding! dubcnn.com: Is that right? 50: Yeah I don't believe that shit, they tellin' them they can't fuckin' respond... dubcnn.com: What's the future for G-Unit? What's the next step after Olivia? 50: Tony Yayo. Tony Yayo's is gonna come out weeks after Olivia's. Oh yeah, we saved the best for last! dubcnn.com: Why you say that? What makes it the best? 50: What makes it the best is, Tony is still raw. He's what we were before everything took off. I'm altered by my situations. You know, my experiences, and what you go through make you who you are. And so I'm different at this point. Tony is exactly what we were before he went in. He went to jail for the whole time, so he missed everything! So it's like, he's gonna be able to capture what we already made, his album, his Get Rich Or Die Tryin'. So I'm excited, and I got a chance to hear the music myself and I'm like "Damn! This shit is what's up!" dubcnn.com: Alright, and as a last question, what was up with that whole rumour with your hand getting cut off? 50: Yeah, you know people got computers... *laughs* With too much time on they hands!
