50 Cent says that he's looking to return to form with his upcoming album. Of course, he's been saying that for the better part of a year and a half while the album has been delayed time and time again. But the Queens-born superstar syas that he's looking to tap back into the essence of classic hip hop.
"I don't see what I fell in love with," he says. "So now I gotta make music that reflects what N.W.A made. I have to make music that has the moments that Nas had. I have to make music that has what Biggie offered."
"For me, I'm still up against what I've done," he says. "So in order to top it, I know it's a difficult task. You know, I see the bloggers. My audience hasn't grown with me. They keep saying, "Aw, man, I want the old 50!" 'Cause those people, it would take them on a safari. I was bringing them close enough to the animals, without being able to get hurt. I was taking them into my neighborhood, where you can very well get your a** killed."
