It's been almost nine years since Curtis James Jackson III, aka 50 Cent, released new music.

Is there a possibility that he will be releasing something new soon?

In an interview with BBC, the rapper was asked if he missed writing and recording music. 

He responded by saying music gave him the attention he wanted. 

“I get the attention that I want from music when I want it,” he said.

The legendary rapper went on to talk about some of his accolades, including selling millions of albums. 

“I just went out and toured 45 countries, and everywhere was sold out. That made me want to offer new music that I could integrate into everything now. I’ve done what I wanted to do in the [sales] capacity. I’ve sold over 35 million records. Not singles — albums,” he said. 

50 Cent also spoke about what he thinks about Hip Hop today and some of the big artists who are dominating the industry. 

"I only like the ones that I see myself in. A lot of the other s–t, I be like, 'Yeah, what the f–k is this, man?' I’ve got to believe them and the s–t they’re saying to be into the artist.

"I love Nicki Minaj, but the funny s–t is, I like watching her when she’s upset. I like that because she has something that comes from the experience of living in South Jamaica. I’m looking at it like, “Yo, I know they think she’s nuts, but they only think that because they don’t understand.” I get it. She thinks you’re trying to play her.  When Cardi B came, I thought she was dope. She’s from the bottom. She was in Club Lust in Brooklyn. [Going] from that and actually making a hit record and turning into who she did? I don’t know why anybody wouldn’t like to see that. It felt like she got everything — married, the baby — it came really fast. That’s the American dream right there," he said.
