(AllHipHop News) The name 50 Cent has almost become synonymous with throwing shots at other entertainers. In recent months, the G-Unit boss has had critical words for A$AP Rocky, Kanye West, Jay Z, and the people behind the show Empire.
It seems Fiddy is proud to announce he is a fan of at least one fellow rap star’s music. XXL caught up with 50 and asked the Queens mogul about his opinion of Drake and his new release If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.
“That n***a was on point, wasn’t he? He came through there with his s**t sharp. It was tight,” said 50 about Drake’s IYRTITL.
Drizzy may have originally planned to drop the project as a free mixtape, but when he released If You’re Reading This as a surprise retail album it did not stop nearly half a million listeners from purchasing the LP.
While 50 praised Drake’s digital album, he also made it clear he favors the music, and not necessarily the rapper.
“Look, I don’t have favorite artists, I have favorite moments from artists,” added 50. “Like, ‘Ooh, you ain’t gonna beat him at that, not that, that’s what he do,’ you know what I’m saying? All of us have those moments, I think, but not everybody can appreciate it.”
