dubcnn.com: Whatup 50? Hey, how you doin' Nima! dubcnn.com: I'm good! Last time I talked to you, you had just finished shooting the video to In Da Club. Since then, your life has completely changed. Are you happy? Aw man I'm feelin' good man! Big transition. 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'? 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: Congratulations on that by the way. Thank you! dubcnn.com: How many songs is Dr. Dre producing on there? Well Dre produced 3 records. dubcnn.com: Who else did you get for production? 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? 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: Ya'll just shot a video for that too right? Yeah we just shot a video for the original Hate It Or Love It. That's Game's second single. dubcnn.com: Everybody was sayin' "Higher" was gonna be his second single, so that's not true? You know what? I felt like "Higher" was the 2nd single when we first recorded it. dubcnn.com: Higher is my favorite track off the record... Yeah! And, what happened was, it had leaked out. The record leaked out, Higher went out on the streets before How We Do went out! So in my head, after you blow the urgency, you know when the record is new and it comes out, it's like "Wow, this is hot!". But I don't like to go backwards. So if I leak records out... Like let's say if my album leaked.. Nah i don't even wanna say that cause I'd have a heart attack *laughs* But if mine leaked out, I'd have to change records on it. dubcnn.com: Game just sold 580,000 copies in his first week. How do you feel about his success? Oh man it feels great! dubcnn.com: Cause there are rumours of tension between you and Game. What's your relationship with him and the rest of the G-Unit? Yeah that doesn't make sense to me! Why would I have tension with an artist! Game is an artist on my label. dubcnn.com: Well I don't know, 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... 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? 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? 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: Do you have any other artists in mind for G-Unit West? Ah man, I'm open, I don't care where you're from. I don't care if you from Knoxville! You can be from anywhere! Like before Young Buck, no one has had commercial success as a rapper from Tennessee, from Nashville, Tennessee. dubcnn.com: Would you consider signing DJ Quik as an artist or producer? DJ Quik? dubcnn.com: I know he's working with Game... Yeah he works with Game... but I'm not really interested in that... dubcnn.com: That would be some shit though, to hear you flowin' over some funky DJ Quik beats.. Over some Quik beats huh... Yeah... It's a possibility... We might make music and make records together. 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: Have you heard the songs though? Nah, I haven't. They don't play them on the radio! dubcnn.com: They're releasing a new Regime mixtape called "All Out War" right now. Aw man... that's they whole music man! You know what I mean? They mixtape ain't big enough for people to hear that... dubcnn.com: But do you listen to any Bay Area HipHop yourself? 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? Oh yeah? Well, I am!
