In October, 50 Cent admitted that if he could be any other rapper these days, he’d choose the “Crank Dat” author.
Recently, the pair teamed up for the official “Mean Mug” video, directed by Collin Tilley. The video is the first of Fif and Soulja Boy’s viral videos, set in an abandoned mental hospital in Los Angeles. RapFix is exclusively kicking off the 24 hour clock until the video debuts on Thisis50.com.
In the G-Unit General’s XXL cover story with Soulja Boy, he acknowledged that he’s reassumed his Muhammad Ali stance in terms of his career.
“I’m more comfortable in a space where people are doubting me than when I’m the favorite,” 50 said in the magazine’s feature. “They doubted me before. Obviously, I was the only crazy person that believed in me at one point.”
Elsewhere, Soulja Boy saluted the Queens native and his legacy.
“Being black with money, from the hood, struggles and coming from nothing to something, of course you’re going to share the common struggles,” the young MC said. “You going to have people hate. You going to have people that change on you, and all that. So of course, watching 50, and him going through what he did—if there wasn’t no 50 Cent, there would be no Soulja Boy.”
Last month, the two shot an unofficial companion to their upcoming “Mean Mug” clip, not to be confused with Wednesday’s debut.
