50 Cent comments on Chief Keef not taking his advice, and the similarities he sees between Keef and his younger self.
50 Cent has mentioned that he had made an attempt to talk to Chief Keef, and give hime some advice on his lifestyle. However, after being arrested time after time since 50's words, it's pretty clear at this point that Keef is playing by his own rules. In a recent interview, 50 spoke on why Keef may have not taken his advice, as well as the similarities he sees between the GBE rapper and his fromer self.
âI actually was attracted to the Chief Keef thing." said 50. "Cause I was like, âI can help him. I know what to do. Just do this.â He didnât listenâ¦Heâs a manâ¦So, when I talk to him, [he] donât have to take it. Iâm not his father. Thatâs his business. Itâs certain things that I look at and go âIf you play your hand this way, you can be good. If you go them other ways, you gonâ have a hard time.â And them bumps in the road theyâre there for you. Itâs not like you exempt.â
Curtis then went on to express how he acted similarly to Sosa in his younger days.Â âChief Keefâs project is the 50 Cent project,â he explained. âItâs the same project. In the beginning, heâs completely influenced by the environment. Thatâs the nightmare. Heâs gonna go through what actually happened. And heâs gonna get bumped around. If you catch on and you start to actually say, âWhatâs the [roof] of the situation? I want to be at the highest point I can actually take it in this actual situation.â And you stop being conscious of your actions and things thatâs going on around you then you can actually evolve into something significant.â
