50 Cent recently revealed that he may be collaborating with Kanye West in the near future.
While talking to MTV about his upcoming album 50 talked about some of the producers he was reaching out to for beats.
“A lot of producers send stuff that’s interesting,” he said. “To me, it inspires me to write with different cadences, see a different style. I don’t want the record to sound like old material. I want it to sound like something new. They all go, ‘Oh, Fif, we want that Get Rich or Die Tryin’. They do the same thing to Jay-Z, [but] if you want the old one, buy the old one. If you want the new material that the artist is inspired to write, check it out.
“I sat with Swizz [Beatz]; I’mma try to get in with him. Don’t even be surprised if you hear me and Kanye, just talented artists — period. I’mma collaborate and make a monster this time. Ain’t nobody off limits to me in my head. If creatively they have something they feel is something for the project, I’m with it.”
This may come as a surprise to those who bought into the Great Universal Music Group Marketing Stunt of ’07 and thought that Kanye and 50 were bitter rivals… Sorry to disappoint the carnivorous hip-hop heads out out there.
Kanye took to Twitter to praise Lloyd Banks, calling him one of the most underrated rappers.
