50 Cent: Kanye’s “Yeezus” Was Weird; That’s Not Hip Hop to Me


50 Cent has been speaking out about the current state of hip-hop in various interviews lately, and he recently shared his thoughts on Kanye’s “Yeezus” with MTV News UK. The album drew mixed reviews, but 50 Cent says that he doesn’t feel it’s hip-hop.

“He’s obviously a talent within our culture and is one of the driving forces of it, but some of that s**t is weird to me. It doesn’t feel like Hip Hop to me, it feels like a fusion of something else, like a weird combination of dance music sounds and stuff.”

Fif added, “That last record, to be honest, I’m not playing it right now. I still play ‘Flashing Lights,’ ‘Gold Digger’ and that whole [‘College Dropout’] project. But some of the new stuff is so creative and feels like he’s trying to create a whole new sound. It sounds scrambled.”

At the end of the interview he added, “you don’t have to agree with everything an artist does.”
