Seldom does 50 Cent not give his opinion on a matter. The Queens emcee is equally known for his business acumen as he is his mouth, so it was only a matter of time before the Power exec and actor weigh in on the Meek Mill vs Drake debacle that’s taken over hip-hop.
According to 50 Cent, Nicki Minaj agrees with Meek Mill’s claims about Drake having a ghostwriter, despite not publicly admitting to it. During an interview with St. Louis’ 104.1 FM, Fif said there’s no other explanation why Meek would be so bold to level those allegations at Drake, knowing his relationship with Nicki.
“I would think that he would be conscious of Nicki before he would say something when you know Nicki and Drake have a relationship,” 50 said. “Even if you just heard it randomly, you would be talking to her before you said something publicly about it. Obviously, she shares the same views because she hasn’t responded to it publicly. You don’t know because you’ve got to watch itself play it out, but I would assume that he would’ve said something to her first.”
When asked if he’s ever had a ghostwriter, 50 Cent said every line any of us ever heard came from his pen, no one else’s.
“I wrote everything,” the Southpaw actor said. “One time I took a line [on] ‘Straight To The Bank.’ Because Tony Yayo did the chorus while we were just chilling in the studio he said that. And then I copied the sound that he did—but we in the room, we playing around, we writing. That’s different than somebody writing your song.”
Before wrapping up the interview, Fif gave his two cents on Lil Wayne and Birdman and the sexual assault allegations leveled at Bill Cosby, and of course it wouldn’t be a true Curtis Jackson interview without a jab at P. Diddy.
