50 Cent Reacts To New Movies Post COVID
50 Cent has experienced the movie-making scene for many years now. After realizing his experience, he states, “For one, I think it’s not heavy criteria for you to be a part of the music business like it used to be,”. He continues, “When I came in, you had to work to earn a big enough buzz for the A&R department and so-and-so-on from the music business to sign you to a major record company. Your opportunity to be successful was there because you could work and actually make something out of it. Anybody who recorded last night and put their song on iTunes this morning is technically in the music business.”
50 Cent then talks about how people can still be successful when it comes to chasing dreams. “So whether they’re good or not, it’s the difference in how we separate those artists … they’re still artists. The longer you work at it, it’s a higher probability that you become successful over time because the more passion you put into it, the better it will start to become I believe.”
