LL needs help – 50 to the rescue

November 26, 2007

LL Cool J spoke with MTV today about his new album Exit 13:

“It’s an incredible feeling” said Cool J, who proclaims this is the best album he’s done in almost a decade. “And you know what? I have to give 50 props for that. If a guy calls you on the phone and says, ‘You know what? Your last record was kinda slow and this was a little weak.’ It was like, ‘Yo, I just thought the record was slow, man, don’t mess my LL up.’ It’s great. One of the most important things in making records, you can’t think you know everything in music. I’m humble. I’m confident, but I’m humble.

“I don’t mind having a conversation with a guy who seems to have his finger on the pulse and having a conversation with him and talking with him and seeing if he can push me a little bit and get my mojo back,” he added. “I didn’t feel I fell off, but I felt I was a little bit out of touch with the things I should be thinking about. I needed to get a little more focused and close to my people and closer to the street.

“It’s more honest,” he continued. “We haven’t worked together for months now, but [50] helped me set the fun. I got loose, I’ve been really just in the lab, but he helped me set the tone. I had fun getting loose again. It was competitive, ’cause we made records together, records that may or may not make the album. All types of hidden records. He pushed me. Now my vertical is back and I can dunk on all of them. I’mma dunk on them so crazy.”

Wait so now you’re saying you shitty album sales are not Jay-Z’s fault? LL hasn’t had a respectable hit since Ill Bomb back in 99′. We’ll see if Curtis can add “Magician” to his long resume.

50 Cent sends his condolences to Kanye West

November 22, 2007

50 spoke to the Associated Press yesterday and had this to say about his record sales rival Kanye West.

“That’s really an unfortunate situation and I hope he can work his way through it,” 50 Cent said Tuesday (Nov. 20). “It’s good to see him actually touring: You can work your way back into a comfortable space where you can deal with those situations.”

“I was telling him, ‘You need to go back and do what you need to do,’ and he thought maybe I was a little insensitive,” 50 Cent revealed. “But I can definitely understand how that’s a huge loss, and how that would be, and then (Kanye’s) relationship with his mom had a lot more depth to it than a lot of people’s. He was real close to his mom.”

“He’s a talented artist. I actually sat with him during the creation of Curtis while he was creating his new album,” the rapper told the AP. “I never viewed him as an actual enemy; what I was trying to do is build a competition.”

50 Cent’s Crib

November 16, 2007

I heard that MTV was going to dedicate an entire episode of Cribs to 50 Cent and didn’t really care.  Then I saw this video and thought it was worth sharing.  Plus I head he has an entire room with Gucci suede walls.  That is way too gaudy not to see.

The episode airs November 29th.
