50 Cent Explains Why He's Been A Billionaire Since 2007

It's been widely reported that Jay-Z is a billionaire. It was said that Kanye West was a billionaire at one point as well.

But 50 Cent hasn't reached that level yet, despite all of his investments, TV shows, touring, and other money-making ventures.

Still, the New York native says he's been a billionaire for a while now and there's very little difference between him and people like Jay.


 

"So when they financially say, ‘Oh you’re a billionaire, this person is a billionaire,’ it’s like I’ve been a billionaire since 2007," 50 explained. "I’m that far from where I came from that I’ve been a billionaire financially because everybody around me is being paid. Resources that I compensate for people to be there and I really don’t see things that I want that I can’t go get it.”  
 
“You got givers and takers, right?" he continued. "People they’ll come and you’ll feel them looking at you like, ‘I’m excited because he’s such and such’ or ‘I wanna meet him because I wanna talk to him and maybe this will happen for me’ or ‘Maybe he’ll finance my idea,’ right? Those people are takers 'cause you see them once. Then you have the guy that hears you talking about an idea and says, ‘Yeah that’s a good idea, let’s do it man.’ That’s a giver because finance means nothing to them.”

Do you get what 50 is saying here?
