50 Cent is usually quick to react to whatever is in the news.
But he remained silent for a few days after learning his "son" Tekashi 6i9ine had pleaded guilty to all of the charges against him and is almost certainly working with the Feds.
He finally addressed the situation in a new interview with Shade 45 host DJ Drama.
"6ix9ine is not from the street," explains 50. "I liked him, like I like Soulja Boy. He was sixteen years old, he produced a record, he made the dance, got his homeboy then and shot it. I want to see him have a hit, that guy that does it. I couldn't do it at 16. I was like yo, he's special. With 6ix9ine, his image was stronger than the music. Middle America, the people actually purchasing music, they can dye their hair blonde and dye their hair those colors ... Hip hop allows you to be in a safari and get close to the animals without being in danger. They seen him in the safari. In the middle of the whole pack."
50 then acknowledged that 6ix9ine is probably snitching on anyone and everyone. So Drama asked him if he thinks 6ix9ine can come back from this if he eventually gets out.
"I think he can make music and people can hear it. But the original core base he tapped into, they won't have it," 50 concluded.
