New York rapper 50 Cent recently talked about his artists dependency on him and why it is vital to let a roster consisting of Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo spread their own wings.
Fif pointed out the cut-throat tendencies of the music industry and why artists often have to fend for themselves through tough times.
"If the sh*t flops again it's like, "OK. That was the ball we threw against the wall. It didn't stick. F*ck it. Give us another ball to throw." That's how the music business works. So if you don't figure out how to build a consistency or how to develop a core, from the material that you're creating, chances are, you're going to be one of those balls that bounce off the wall while they're looking for the ones that stick. ... I think Banks is... All of them. Every single artist that I've been around, I've overcompensated. They've been on records that say, "New 50 Cent!" and then you hear their voice." (Complex)
