50 Cent says that his decision to hang upside down during the Super Bowl Halftime Show was a "mistake." 50 reflected on the performance while discussing his upcoming tour with USA Today on Wednesday. 50 is hitting the road in honor of the 20th anniversary of his iconic album, Get Rich or Die Tryin'.
"It’s gonna be a whole new show," 50 Cent shared of his upcoming concerts. "Sometimes out of habit, you go to certain records. People love other things on it, so I wanna make sure I touch those records before I don’t do those anymore."

"I think that was a mistake for the Super Bowl," he admitted of being upside down. "Everybody else walked in regular, the songs still went over and they got the trophy, too. They all won an Emmy. They got the same thing I got and I had to put myself upside down." 50 performed alongside Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, and Mary J. Blige.
Elsewhere in the interview, 50 reflected on the impact of Get Rich or Die Tryin'. When the interviewer described him as having revolutionized the music scene, he disagreed. "It's not really a revolution," he clarified. "If you're gonna make music that is going to be world music, it has to have melodies. English is not their first speaking language in a lot of places that I travel. What (those crowds) follow is the melody until they understand what you're saying."

50 further praised Drake, explaining that he's continuing on the same path. "Drake is the new, stronger version like that because he can do a whole pop record, sing the whole song. I've never done that," he said. "He'll say that I'm one of those influences… That’s a big compliment because he's established himself and done great work."
