AMP Music Minute: AMA Awards Get Bigger, 50 Cent Talks Drugs And Alcohol (Or Lack Thereof) And Kid Cudi Makes A “Maniacal” Short (page 2)
[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]50 Cent [/lastfm]has been making the rounds in support of his new book, Playground. One of his most recent stops was on the CNN show, Piers Morgan Tonight, with Piers Morgan.
The two spoke about a number of issues that have affected 50 personally from drugs and alcohol, to being shot, to his newest philanthropic effort.
[photogallerylink id=115696 align=left]50 has spoken briefly about his decisions to stay away from drugs, even though he has admitted to selling them. He explained his reasons had a lot to do what he saw in his own family, “I got a chance to watch a lot of my mother’s sisters and brothers at different periods experiment with the use of drugs or alcohol and I see them respond so differently that I stay away,” he explained.
When it came to alcohol, the rapper explains more vaguely of an experience that changed his point of view, “I’ve had an experience that made me paranoid because of it and I stayed away from it following that.”
The two also spoke on 50’s success as a business man and his One Like, One Meal initiative aimed to help feed Africans.
Of course, their were lighter moments in the interview, perhaps like when Piers revealed to 50 that he works out to one of 50’s biggest hits, “In Da Club.”
Well how about that! Get it Curtis! Keep changing the world, one workout song at a time!
