50 Cent Speaks On “Animal Ambition” Influences

Posted By on March 9, 2014

50 Cent recently spoke with Vibe, and detailed his upcoming project “Animal Ambition“. Fifty noted greats like Nas, Rakim, And The Notorious B.I.G, for influencing him and his latest release, but also said it’s important to create your own lane with the music.

“It was more important that you had your own style than you being able to master a version of Rakim or a version of another artist’s style,” he says in a recent interview withVibe. “Nobody does that better than [Rakim]. Even with new content that flow is still his flow. Nas is [also] one of those guys…he has his own. Even if some people make comparisons that was just Queensbridge, man. That period for me…Mobb Deep, Prodigy is in his own class in my mind”

“Animal Ambition is about prosperity and the effects of it,” he says. “A lot of people think about how successful you are doing when it comes to prosperity, but the envy connected to it like, ‘Damn, niggas wanna want to stick me for my paper.’ That was [The Notorious] B.I.G. rapping after Ready To Die when he actually made some money and felt new energy from people that he didn’t feel before with the success he had at that point…It’s going to be really interesting because some of [Animal Ambition] is written from a slightly warped perspective…But it’s all about prosperity.”
