50 Cent stopped by AMP Radio yesterday to chop it up with his old friend Carson Daly. The two discussed 50's meteoric rise to fame, how Eminem saved his career when he signed him, Young Buck and The Game turning their backs on him after he helped to launch their careers and his new single "My Life" which features Em and Adam Levine.
The G-Unit mogul has been a fan of Adam's for a long time.
“We were coming up at the same time and they asked me what do I like and I said Maroon 5 because I just heard the song [“She Will Be Loved”] and I just said, ‘What is that?’” he told Carson.
Carson said he loves hearing 50 and Eminem collaborate on songs like "Patiently Waiting" and "Never Enough." Carson believes the two have a hit on their hands with "My Life."
"You got it right with My Life," Carson said. "Because you got a little bit of Em on that. But the two of you together there's a sense of urgency that we don't hear in hip hop, yet it's pop palatable. Meaning I could play it here and you can go over to Big Boy's [Neighborhood] and he's going to play it over there."
“What really happened is for the the first time we were in the studio and I said, ‘No, we gotta make a single," 50 explained. “I found a space that kind of meets the Slim Shady, not the Marshall Mathers, but the Slim Shady side of Em when he starts to get in that pocket. It just makes a great collaboration every time we did it like Gatman and Robin or Psycho.”
Fif goes on to talk about why things didn't work with Young Buck and The Game, his performance on The Voice, Street King energy shot and helping to feed the hungry and why "New Day" will appear on Street King King Immortal and Alicia Keys' Girl On Fire album.
