Last week 50 Cent was saying that MTV could “suck his dick,” but apparently such concerns are pushed aside when the CEO-like rapper has an album to flog. Sort of. In this clip (since removed, but there’s an excerpt on MTV.com), he sits down with MTV’s Tim Kash and spends a good five or six minutes whining about his lower-than-No.-1 placement on the channel’s “Hottest MCs In The Game” list, which was the original reason for his outburst, even though he’s also claiming that he’s “only in competition with 50 Cent.” So confusing!
Elsewhere in the interview, he talks about his freak-out over the leak of his video with Robin Thicke and keeps alive his claim that he’s going to be No. 1 on the charts when the Billboard 200 comes out on Sept. 19–despite simultaneously going back on his promise to quit making albums if he doesn’t hit the top spot. (Maybe he finally read his e-mail from Kenny Chesney?)
