New York, NY – 50 Cent is in heavy promo mode for his new ABC crime drama For Life, which premiered on February 11. During a recent interview with The Breakfast Club, the seasoned rapper sat down with Charlamagne Tha God, DJ Envy and Angela Yee where the topic of Nick Cannon and Eminem inevitably came up.
The outspoken celebrity said with absolute certainty, he wouldn’t even give Cannon the courtesy of responding to a diss track, which is reportedly the same advice he gave Eminem when Cannon fired off not one but three diss tracks in Slim Shady’s direction earlier this year.
“I would never respond to Nick Cannon,” he said. “Never. The camera is on, right? He’s legendary corny. He’s been legendary corny. He’s been corny forever, like from the very beginning. I thought at one point he was headed somewhere that was like Will Smith-ish ’cause it was kind of comedy stuff. Then, it just never got to its destination. It just never got cool.”
When Yee asked if 50 would give Cannon a role in the forthcoming Power spin-off, he confirmed it’s not out of the question.
“Yeah, if he did a good job,” he said. “He did great in Drumline. He did good in that. Like, I believed him … as a drummer.”
Charlamagne replied, “The only thing he’s not good at is rapping,” to which 50 said, “I don’t know why he’s so passionate about it. Like, what the hell is going on? Bro, look, you suck, bro. You suck, bro. I’mma just tell you the truth. Like, there was never a moment when you said something and we was like, ‘Ooo, bars.'”
