50 Cent has not released a solo studio album since 2014, but that does not stop the New York legend from demanding large amount of money to perform live.
“I’m getting like $900,000, $1 million. The coolest thing we create in America is celebrities. If you see LeBron James fan base internationally, you’ll argue, ‘Why is he staying here?’ He’s that big internationally. For the most part, I can’t speak for everybody, but the international side of the game is different.” said 50 Cent.
Then he continues: “I get the attention that I want from music when I want it. I just went out and toured 45 countries, and everywhere was sold out. That made me want to offer new music that I could integrate into everything now. I’ve done what I wanted to do in the sales capacity. I’ve sold over 35 million records.”
In the interview, Fif also revealed that Eminem has recently sent him new records and is teaming up with Dr. Dre for his upcoming project. Additionally, Fiddy secured a feature on forthcoming King Disease IV album by Nas and Hit-Boy.
