5 Cent talking about whether the true legend, Nasir Jones, is smart in the new issue of XXL:
You have different kinds of people. You have people that are extremely book smart that lack common sense so they don’t know what’s going to affect their audience. They have more information than me based on reading. For instance, Nas is a really smart guy. He reads books constantly. We were around him on the Nastradamus tour. He was almost weirder than me ’cause we would go to breakfast and he’d be there reading a book. Conceptually, I think that’s what made him drift away from what his initial audience enjoys from him and why he’s not hot right now.
5 Cent makes time during the interview to di*k ride Eminem:
On a higher level, Em for me is like next to my grandmother. He did things for me when I couldn’t do them myself. I needed him at that point and he actually came through for me.
5 Cent doesn’t even qualify to light Nas’ blunt for him. If 5 Cent thinks he is still hot, why does he keep pushing his album back? That garbage and lack of creativity is not selling this time around. That predictable ‘hoes, money, and shoot everyone up’ formula is not working for 5 cent anymore, no one is buying what he is selling, literally.
