A few days ago a lot of people put American rapper 50 Cent on blast of r not attending his son’s graduation – now featured in GQ magazine, the music star talks on relationships, family and friends.
In the June 2014 issue of GQ, 50 says he doesn’t have a relationship with his son anymore while blaming the mother, calls Diddy a sucker, and even says he feels he was paying Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo to be friends.
Read excerpts of his interview below:
On relationships: “I think friendship is the strongest form of relationship. Don’t ever forget to be friends. And you be conscious. Because there’s a point that your friendship would develop that it has so much value that it would become priceless. And at that point, you should consider marriage.”
On his family: “Me and my son, we don’t have a relationship anymore. It’s based on his mom. He’s adopted her way of thinking. I don’t have anything negative around the concept of kids.”
On why he left Interscope: “When people couldn’t care less about you actually being successful, you can feel it.”
On Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo: “I enabled these guys. I wouldn’t have been a friend if I didn’t help them. But helping them hurt them. Maybe I was paying them to be friends.”
On Puffy: “He’s a sucker”
On being a life coach: “I like the life-coach concept—it’s a cool concept. But my life’s not all the way right. To be coaching someone else, all I can do is give you the things that I would use. You see what I’m saying? We all have imperfections, man. We all have things that are not right.”
