J. Cole's Artist Bas Talks About 50 Cent's Influence On Queens, New York [Video]

Video After The Jump

Bas shares what it was like growing up in Jamaica, Queens after spending the first eight years of his life in Paris. The "Lit" rapper said that 50 Cent's presence was known around the neighborhood before "Get Rich or Die Tryin'" came out, but says the debut album "swept" the borough. Bas also speaks about going to a mixtape spot on 164th and getting exclusive G-Unit albums, which was a big deal before the Internet came into play.


Speaking about his own rap career, Bas says that it all started on his 23rd birthday. He explains that he had DJ'd his own birthday party, and when he got back to his apartment he and his friend recorded over Kanye's "Breathe In, Breathe Out." After playing it for friends, Bas said he "caught a bug" and made about 14 records that started off his career.

"Damn, all those that respect lyrical MCs & not kindergarten rhymes from wack rappers can see the subliminal diss he made. Even if it's not meant to be a diss it's still some slick words. It's true, nobody on MMG can mess with any…"
