50 Cent is promoting the latest season of Power, but there is no way the rapper can avoid discussing music. In the interview above, 50 talked the power of the debut album. For example, Get Rich or Die Tryin’, which was a cultural-shifting album. In addition, he used Nas as an example as someone being ahead of his time with his debut.
