50 Cent Recently did an Interview with Esquire and The Guardian in which 50 Cent shares his wisdom and thoughts on life in his own words.

In this post we feature a List of the best excerpts from both interviews with 50.

 

50 Cent’s Business Advice

Have you ever seen the movie The Butterfly Effect? If you go back and change one thing, you end up with a different end result. I wouldn’t want to change who I am now, the end result.

The biggest misconception about me is that I have bad intentions. I do what I have to do to get by. I don’t wake up and decide I’m gonna do something to hurt someone. But if that’s the only option for me to move forward then I will.

I will be the person with the least amount of fear in the room when we’re negotiating business, because I’ll weigh it up against situations far more dramatic than a deal going bad – like the loss of my mom, or the confusion after being shot. Not knowing what I was going to do with my life after being shot hurt more than being physically shot.

People who study business and get their Masters are deemed intelligent. I think they just have great short-term memories and retain information long enough to pass exams. If they actually applied that information then we’d have a problem, we’d have an over-population of successful people.

——————
Sometimes you do need to convince yourself through convincing others.

I never saw drug use as a good option. I’d rather have an additional ten dollars than smoke. It wasn’t a decision to not smoke weed. It was a decision to hustle. It was a business decision.

Hustling was my internship.

People who raise their hands deserve to be ahead of people who don’t.

Money is freedom. Money is a private plane. Money is no metal detectionDon’t wait for them to tell you. Tell them.

There are too many entrepreneurs. We need the worker to make the process function properly.

The first time I felt rich was when I had $80,000 inside my house. I saw it as a means to more money.

Money is not going to make you happy. A new idea is what makes you happy.

Obama takes away the excuses.

The best businessmen in the world make a bad deal sometimes. And it’s not usually in a boardroom. Most of them marry the wrong woman. That business deal is the worst business deal of all.

All the women have contributed to my success. Every one.

Always have bail money.

Depression is
 a luxury I still can’t afford.I like generals. I like Napoleon. I like strategy. The majority of them are praised for mass destruction, but it’s exciting to see how it comes to the mind mentally.

Is Charles Manson a serial killer? No, he isn’t, because he ain’t do no killing. He’s a coward. He was just crazy enough to influence people to kill for him. There were a lot of Charles Mansons in my neighborhood. There were no Napoleons.

You need a respectable opponent, but you don’t have to respect ’em. In the end you’re gonna finish ’em anyway, right?

“I always had big ambitions. Big dreams you know what I’m saying. Well I always envision things. What I mean by that is before I used to think of something and just sit there and just be thinking of it. That’s dreaming. When you come up with something and you start figuring out how to execute it. That’s envisioning you know you’re actually attempting to execute it you know I take my idea and I roll with them”. – 50 Cent

    I read The 50th Law, his collaboration with Robert Greene. How he creates publicity through controversy and “rap beefs” as well as make educated business decisions is how he’s remained relevant all these years. Even if (or when) his rap career fizzles, he’ll still be successful for years to come because he knows the importance of diversifying.

Last night, a friend of mine (let’s call him Jameel) took me to his mentor. He was going to get some business advice and wanted someone to tag along for the ride. Having nothing to do for the rest of the day, I decided to go. After waiting for about an hour at his office, we finally got that chance to meet him: A simple looking guy (supposed to be a guru in his field) with a twitchy left eye. (more…)
