Hey Mr. Cent,

I need to know if there is any truth behind Aziz's Grapefruit story. Can you shed some light on that?

Yo $0.50 . . . what happened on that pitch?

I have a skeletal muscle injury on my left shoulder from excessive masturbation so take it easy lol

Hey man, what made you want to accept Bitcoin payment for your new album?

stay with times. technology is what's changing the business gotta get with it. I take money no matter if its coins or dollars

Hey 50, just a couple questions

  1. From the recent G-Unit reunion are there any chances of The Game being involved? Also what was it like to preform with everyone again?

  2. Hows the relationship with Em, any new projects you guys are working on?

  3. You've always been very business minded in your career is there any advice you would give someone who wants to start their own brand or company?


  1. not a chance. feels good to be back on stage with them again. couple of them gotta get in shape again they get tired lol
  2. I am gonna go to his show see him soon in london
  3. because of the internet do it independently. you have access to things we didnt. i had to hustle bootlegers. chief keef is in his grandma living room doing it

50, my brother and I are huge fans. We have been listening to your music since the early days and have been with you all the way, we grew up with your music. We have bought your books, watched your films and we even played your video games, all the while we have admired your entrepreneurial spirit. We were front row at Wembley Stadium when you came to London and again front row when you were in Barcelona for the XGames.

My question’s are:

Thank you not only for the music we listen to, but also for being the bond between my brother and I. We are true fans of yours.

that plaque is the coolest thing ive seen so far. ill be back in the UK soon

i just wanna continue success

Big fan, just bought Animal Ambition and what I've heard so far is fire. What made you decide to turn this from a pre-album mixtape into a full album? Also check out /r/hiphopheads

edit: smsaudio

a mixtape would have previously released music. Animal ambition was all original if you put music out and call it a mixtape its not under the same scrutiny. i felt strong enough about it. it's quality.

How much can you bench press?

the most was 405 but i started looking like the security lol i had to slim down

yo 50! do you still have the slowbuck chain from SummerJam?

also, i think Animal Ambition is your best work since Massacre. really good job with that. thanks for being 50.

i dont know why people keep talking about this. i was busy performing. it was so many people on stage lol

What's your favorite brand of Root beer?

i dont drink root beer unless its the only cold can available. i drink ginger ale

Sup mate! Who would you pick to star with you in a cereal commercial? What kind of cereal would you be selling?

Edit: just told my boyfriend you were doing this, he's excited! He would like to to pick your brain and ask how did you get people to take you seriously? Any advice on how to command attention? (In the right way)

Your album, Get Rich or Die Tryin' was the first cd I can remember buying with my own money. Still is one of my favorite all time CDs. My question is about your tattoo removal. Were there any tattoos you knew you were going to miss? Is tattoo removal really as painful as people say it is? Is it more like a scar now or is it a clean removal? Thanks for doing this AMA.
