50 Cent has proven that he knows what it takes to make a hit record. All he needs is the right beat from a producer and you can bet it will become a smash.
Vibe recently caught up with the multi-platinum rapper to find out if he’s ever thought of possibly switching gears by producing records himself.
“No, I don’t wanna get producer’s ears,” 50 said. “What I mean by that is the producer hears his snare, his kick and what he thinks his keys should be on the actual record. And sometimes they can’t hear something that’s hot that someone else done. Because they’re into that little pocket.”
Fif added that making a hit record requires several different elements coming together.
“I know when I hear a hit and to write the content,” he continued. “Because a hit is a marriage between the production and the lyrics and your tone [of voice]. So a hit record is as much the artist having the right tones.”
We’ll get a chance to hear some more hit records from the G-Unit boss on July 2nd when he releases his fifth studio album
