50 Cent Covers VIBE

Not only is 50 taking over the Internet with his freestyles, but now he’s taking over the world on the cover of VIBE’s International issue. The mag debuts on newsstands April 5th. Read the excerpts and watch him speak on the cover after the cut.

ON DR. DRE’S REACTION TO HIS SLEEK HEADPHONES
: I have a strong personality, a strong character. And I can be difficult to deal with at certain points because I’m vocal. If you upset Em, he’s just gonna not talk to you. You’re not going to get him in the next room you wanna get him in. With Dre, the same. He’s not comfortable with friction. That [tweet] is, “Hey look, I’m here. Is everybody still paying attention?” So they go, “Why he say that? Why he say we mad?” Then the meeting happens.”

50 ON HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH CHELSEA HANDLER
Chelsea is confident. I think confidence is the sexiest thing about a person. She’s the kind of person that if you’re blessed with the opportunity to hang out with her, you’ll enjoy it. I’m not sure you’ll look at her and actually want to jump over the table and fuck her, but you might. You would leave after talking with her feeling that she is a cool person.”

50 ON BEST NEW ARTIST GRAMMY RESULT
“I think Drake got robbed. He should have got artist of the year last year [ laughs], to be real with you… He did a lot, man. I don’t believe that Drake would have been as successful or his project would have been as successful if Lil’ Wayne was home. That point where Wayne had to sit down provided a complete focus on Drake.”

50 ON RAPPERS WITH FACE TATTOOS
“That’s the craziest thing. Not necessarily Gucci, but to tattoo your face says that there’s not a possibility that you can actually walk into a legitimate establishment without makeup covering your face every day. That does not work. It creates a separation. It says, “I’m an artist.” That’s it. That’s the statement you make when you go and tattoo your face…But know that the public will not have interest in you as an artist for life. You have to be phenomenal. Talk to the best that do it and they will tell you that it will take more than you being an artist. It takes marketing, maneuvering to generate for that long. When you got 40-year-old rappers in the game, those guys have maneuvered and survived.”

50 ON HIS INTERNATIONAL APPEAL
I did the groundwork. I traveled. To them I’m not a myth. I’m a real person. They’ve seen me live in performances in Croatia, Kosovo, India…The same way they feel about me in New York, they feel about me in Africa and they feel about me in India. You can spin the globe and stop it wherever you want and say 50 Cent, and they know exactly who you’re talking about and they know the material. It is what it is. I don’t have the trophy case to reflect that, but I can’t eat trophies.

  • dumb dumb

    @ Belly no one’s interested and yet you rattle off so much shit of his. I bet I would win and say you’re interested or are you just playing the ever present hate game? Trust me if I’m not interested in something I couldn’t rattle off a laundry list of their most recent accomplishments.

    tie is wrong!

  • irrelevant

    This dude is a genius for one simple matter, his name is always afloat in the media for something, yet this guy hasn’t made relevant music in years, his movies are straight to dvd, his label is pretty much dead, i mean Banks had a nice buzz this past year but that didn’t much for him since his album didn’t sell and he seems to have given up on promoting it. and Yayo well…lmao.

    The guy is a parasite, disease, you can’t get rid of him.

  • ok

    niggas act like they forget 50 ran the game 4 years

  • PrincePolo

    dope cover but fif .. get rid of those fucking costumes man .

  • ZoomZoomDad-Otis

    @Irrelevant. FIF is back on his grind. 50 Cent signed a $200 million 10 movie deal with Lionsgate, Sleek headphones coming soon. 50 Cent had a pretty good 2010 with being on songs with Lloyd, Jeremih, Too Short.

  • mac DIESEL

    “He’s not comfortable with friction.”

    ^

    TRANSLATION: DRE IS A BITCH.

    ….HA!!!! **SHOTS FIRED**

    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

  • original will

    50 was on point with that face tattoo comment i mean wayne buzz is crazy but if you notice wayne cant be in any commercials like with his face involved when you do shit like you basically saying that I dont want to nothing but rap or sing becuz in all honesty a fan doesnt have to look at you to enjoy your music but its kind of hard to take gucci mane serious on a tv show with a tattoo of an ice cream on his face or Game with a Butterfly/LA sign on the side of his face

    Game always talking about movies he will nt be able to play anything outside of a gangsta in a movie for now on unless they have an expensive ass make up budegt which directors and producers dont want to spend a bunch of money on it eliminates opportunities for you when its been proven by Luda,Snoop, and Jay that this rap shit can take you further than just a couple of records sold

    then looc at it none of those face tattoos have any deep meaning to them at all they just Tatts

  • Master

    50 is one of the smartest people in the game. I don’t give a fuck what anyone says he did the damn thing and is still getting to major paper… If you don’t like the facts then go jump off a building..

  • syllables

  • ILUVHATERZ
