On the Season 4 premiere of the Emmy nominated series Larry King Now Grammy winner and multi-platinum artist 50 Cent sits down with Larry King for an in-depth interview about his recent legal troubles, his view on policy brutality and his friendships with Floyd Mayweather. Plus, a sneak peek at his new movie Southpaw and is 50 going to be the next host of The Apprentice?
50 Cent responds to the media scrutiny following the recent news that he’s filed for bankruptcy and answers– is it hard to have your legal woes in the spotlight?
“I’ve seen so many things said about me on social networking at points and when you don’t anticipate it, it lands a little harder on you…I can see what’s going to come from people. It’s strategic. It’s a move that’s necessary for me to make at this point.”
He’s been shot 9 times, sold drugs in his youth but could rough financial times be ahead for 50 Cent?
“It makes me feel like there’s nothing that can be in front of me that can be more difficult than what I’ve already experienced. I’ve been through the tougher parts of my life already.”
Police brutality is a trending topic in the news but is it racially motivated? 50 Cent responds saying:
“I think it’s always been there. I don’t think it’s particularly racially motivated. I think that it’s being captured now because everyone is conditioned to have a phone or recording device so we see a little more.”
In addition, 50 Cent talks about his relationship with boxer Floyd Mayweather and their public arguments. Are they still friends? 50 says:
“He’s like my brother. My younger brother.”
Plus, 50 speaks on what it’s like to work alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in ‘Southpaw’ and what is his guilty pleasure.
