50 Cent continues to look out for the younger generation.
Despite his numerous feuds and his trolling ways, it's hard to deny that 50 Cent hasn't shown love to the younger generation of rappers. When TDE was first making waves in the mainstream, Fif was quick to show love to the Kendrick Lamar and ScHoolboy Q. More recently, 50 Cent showed love to Tekashi 6ix9ine and even co-signed the "GUMMO" rapper's claim of being the "King Of New York." Now, it looks like 50 Cent wants to provide some guidance for YBN Cordae.
In a since-deleted post, YBN Cordae took to the 'Gram to share a #TBT photo of himself while giving 50 Cent a shout out. "#TBT Always been a young boss n***a @50cent," he wrote.
Fif responded to Cordae on Instagram shortly after. The "Power" exec. reposted the photo and told Cordae to see him before doing any sort of deals in the future.
"Come see me before you do any deal. @ybncordae on some real shit.🤨get the strap #lecheminduroi," Fif wrote.
50 Cent is another legend in the game who has shown love to Cordae is recent times. Towards the end of August, Cordae revealed that he spent sixteen hours in the studio with Dr. Dre on his birthday, which is probably the best way to spend your birthday if you're an emerging rapper.
Last week, the YBN crew released their long-awaited mixtape, YBN: The Mixtape. Now that they've released their formal introduction as a collective, maybe we'll get solo projects from them in the near future.
