50 Says You Cant Compare Him To Drake

Posted By on June 4, 2010

     50 Cent recently said he can't be compared to other artists like Drake because he's held to a different standard, as he isn't allowed to make R&B type songs. "I guess he's cool," 50 said in an interview. "He has momentum with his music, but the things that he's able to do are things that I'm not permitted to do 'cause of the perception of me. The aggression in my music is translated the strongest and they expect that from me every time. It kinda works for me and works against me at different points. [Drake's] a great singer also; we like the part when he starts to sing on the chorus. He just put out a whole R&B song ["Find Your Love"]–like there's no rap on it, it's just an R&B record. That is what Kanye West was permitted to do with 808s & Heartbreak, to make a complete love song or an R&B record. I won't be permitted to do that because they expect me to kill someone on the song. They just want that from me because I've had that type of energy in my actual experience and they feel like it's special or authentic in some way when I offer that."
