50 Cent taped an interview with CNN's Piers Morgan on Friday. It will air Monday October 31, at 9PM Eastern.
After the interview, Fif stopped backstage for a quick chat to talk about his influence on Twitter, his upcoming album, record companies and Piers himself.
"He's a great journalist," 50 said of Piers. "He's going to make sure the public gets to hear the answers to questions they would actually be interested in."
Unlike a lot of celebrities, 50 actually interacts with his followers on Twitter. He said that should be expected of all entertainers who use the social networking site.
"It allows you the opportunity to reach your base," said 50. "To create something, as a form of entertainment. I think entertainers are supposed to entertain on it."
The G-Unit boss also discussed his upcoming album and how record companies can negatively affect an artist's career.
"You can make great music and it just goes into a slot where people say 'it was done well, but who cares?' You got older material of artists you listen to and you go back and say 'wow, this person was amazing; what happened to them?' The system happened to them. The business of music itself happened to them," he said. "Sometimes the companies don't prioritize things the actual public thinks are amazing and it just falls to the wayside"
He went on to add that his new album is all but finished. He needs just two songs before the disc is complete.
