50 Cent talks The Big 10 LP, new artist Paris, Street King & more w/ DJ Whoo Kid [Audio]

G-Unit head honcho 50 Cent visited New York’s Shade 45 studios for a sit down with radio personality and fellow G-Unit member DJ Whoo Kid. With F50’s mixtape, 50 Cent Is The Future, recently reaching its 10 year milestone Fif and Whoo Kid kicked off the 40 minute long candid conversation discussing the now classic tape changed the old mixtape game and subsequently shaped the mixtape game as we know it today. During this topic 50 spoke on why he decided to put out his own tapes (starting with 50 Cent Is The Future), how the project came together, including the clothes that he Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo wore on the cover. “We did a photo shoot in a garage… at the time we used to wear clothes that was way too big for us. I was wearing a 3 X [extra, extra, extra large] at one point. That’s crazy! I’m wearing a 1 X right now…”

The insightful discussion then moved on to the role the tape played in the early 2000s during the the old duel mixtape/DVD days where a majority of mixtapes [both in the US and in London] were accompanied by DVDs. After which the two discussed Curtis’ recently released free album The Big 10, new G-Unit artist Paris, the difference between G-Unit Records and G-Note Records, trying to juggle a huge roster of artists, Lil Wayne and The Carter IV, the smoke and mirrors seen in the Hip Hop industry, his SMS Audio venture and the technology that went into creating the headsets, Street King… ohh and Floyd Mayweather calls him half way through the interview. Basically this interview has everything…
