On playing Dre

Thank God for Courtney (Courtney A. Kemp is a writer and producer on Power) she gave me the opportunity to either be a Ghost 2.0 and follow Omari (Ghost) and be the good/bad guy or do you want to be the villain. [She said] If you are going to be the villain you better be one of the best to do it. Can you handle being the villain?

On beef with 50 cent

I’ll say this…50 is a marketing genius. There is some, I’ll say 10% truth to this whole story. He signed me to G-Unit  and when you are an artist you get a budget; basically a loan. 50 believed that another song on my project should have been the single. I disagreed so I said I would buy myself out of my deal. But the way it works is if you buy yourself out of a deal I make the money back in iTunes sales, royalties, etc.
