Video After The Jump

 

While out in Las Vegas lending support to Floyd Mayweather Jr. for his upcoming fight with Miguel Cotto, 50 Cent took some time out to talk with Elie Seckbach and a group of boxing reporters about a variety of subjects.

 

50 confirmed that his fifth studio album will be released in July, talked about his amateur boxing background and answered the often asked question regarding comparisons between Floyd and Muhammad Ali.

 

"I think {Floyd] is the equivalent to Ali," 50 said. "I think he is the Ali of our time, our generation. The difference is the actual messaging points. In that period Ali was a part of a movement that was a huge movement that socially made him someone different. They responded to him differently because he was willing to stand up for that in that time period. Without those issues going on it's pretty tough for you to be anywhere near in comparison to him," 50 added. "Hip hop culture is now pop culture, it's so broad. If you watch how many of the artists and people... how relevant [Floyd] is to that it says how big he is to the sport. He actually is boxing right now."

 

50 also talks about how he and Floyd became friends.

Mello Type - "Boomin My Shii"

Mello Type is an up and coming artist out of Greenville GA who just released his latest track "Boomin My Shii." It's a very wavy vibey song, something that seems in the lane of Lil Uzi Vert or even as diverse as Yung Lean. This definitely a track worth listening and vibing to. We have the track on repeat over here at Thisis50. We spoke to Mello Type and he let us kno, " My first project will be dropping in February, with two visuals to go with it. I tend to make music you can vibe to and mellow…See More
