Hey 50, just a couple questions

  1. From the recent G-Unit reunion are there any chances of The Game being involved? Also what was it like to preform with everyone again?

  2. Hows the relationship with Em, any new projects you guys are working on?

  3. You've always been very business minded in your career is there any advice you would give someone who wants to start their own brand or company?


Official50Cent2163 karma

  1. not a chance. feels good to be back on stage with them again. couple of them gotta get in shape again they get tired lol

Your album, Get Rich or Die Tryin' was the first cd I can remember buying with my own money. Still is one of my favorite all time CDs. My question is about your tattoo removal. Were there any tattoos you knew you were going to miss? Is tattoo removal really as painful as people say it is? Is it more like a scar now or is it a clean removal? Thanks for doing this AMA.

Official50Cent1308 karma

tattoo removal is extremely painful. i do not advise it. its like signing up to be burnt

topical cream docs give you dont work lol

50, my brother and I are huge fans. We have been listening to your music since the early days and have been with you all the way, we grew up with your music. We have bought your books, watched your films and we even played your video games, all the while we have admired your entrepreneurial spirit. We were front row at Wembley Stadium when you came to London and again front row when you were in Barcelona for the XGames.

My question’s are:

  • When are you coming back to perform in the UK? ( know your ‘London Girl’ is probably still waiting for you)
  • You have dominated so many areas in business, is there anything else you still would like to achieve?
  • Music is continually evolving, what do you think we should expect in the future for Rap?

Thank you not only for the music we listen to, but also for being the bond between my brother and I. We are true fans of yours.

Official50Cent837 karma

that plaque is the coolest thing ive seen so far. ill be back in the UK soon

i just wanna continue success

Albus_k629 karma

whats your favourite video game?

Official50Cent1612 karma

Blood on the sand. i dont think it has anything to do with me being in it. also NBA live 2014

cbrb590 karma

Big fan, just bought Animal Ambition and what I've heard so far is fire. What made you decide to turn this from a pre-album mixtape into a full album? Also check out /r/hiphopheads

edit: smsaudio

Official50Cent779 karma

a mixtape would have previously released music. Animal ambition was all original if you put music out and call it a mixtape its not under the same scrutiny. i felt strong enough about it. it's quality.

Justvh0543 karma

When u made Get Rich or Die Tryin, did u think at the time it would have the impact that it does today?

Official50Cent948 karma

no i didnt. I was praying for it do to well. It surpassed my expectations. I hope animal ambition does the same
