In his new book Hustle Harder Hustle Smarter, 50 Cent speaks on his relationship with Tekashi 6ix9ine.

He said 6ix9ine viewed the rap game and the character he played like the WWE.  Unfortunately, 50 explained, the troll rapper got tied up with real gangsters who didn't see things that way.

50 believes that the particulars of 6ix9ine (and his favorite whipping boy Ja Rule)'s upbringings tricked them into thinking they could navigate the streets and contrasted that to someone like Drake, who has no such delusions.

"I believe one of the things that tripped up people like Tekashi and Ja Rule is that they grow up on the outskirts of the hood.  They weren't from the hood but they had been exposed to it.  It tricked them into thinking they were equipped to handle situations they weren't actually built for. Contrast them with someone like Drake, who isn't even from the outskirts of the hood. He's from a completely different environment.  I've never seen Drake associate too closely with the artists he puts on. ... He's smart enough to judge his own character and concede there are some forces he won't be able to harness.  Tekashi was a good judge of what white kids wanted to listen to piss off their parents.  But he wasn't a good judge of people's characters or intentions."

50 Cent went on to say that he thinks 6ix9ine is a very smart kid.  He just got in over his head.
