50 Cent Discusses "The Lost Tape" & Alleged Issues With Dre

Postby SG. » Apr 28th, '12, 19:38

In preparation for his first Gangsta Grillz mixtape, "The Lost Tape," 50 Cent recently called into Shade 45 to discuss the project with DJ Drama.

"I never really, on the mixtapes, reach out and put the people I needed to put on to make it feel like it  was a different energy," explained FIf. "It was me doing what I want to do, and of course, putting the artists around me on the tape to get them that exposure."

"This go-round, I said, 'Because it's Gangsta Grillz, it's an event for me!'" added 50.

"Gangsta Grillz is actually the biggest mixtape brand you can be associated with. Everyone else has lost the consistency."

50 also addressed his relationship with Dr. Dre, which has reportedly been strained at times, particularly in light of Dre's recent collaborations with Rick Ross. "You know what I know about Dre? Creatively, he's saying, 'If there's a hit, wherever it is, I'm going to go get it.'"

"I don't care. These are people I have strong relationships with that have done things for me," he continued. "You don't bite the hand that feeds you. I've been raised that way. ...What is 50 Cent's career minus 'In Da Club?'"

Minus in a club is still a classic album, but success without that wouldnt have reached near the level it did in '03
