50 Cent Reacts To Tekno Using His Music As A Sample
A portion of Tekno’s 2017 song “GO,” which samples the well-known verses from 50 Cent’s 2003 hit single “In Da Club,” was played during an interview with 50 Cent on MSNBC. When the host asked 50 Cent how it made him feel that a musician from Nigeria would sample one of his songs, 50 Cent said it felt good and one of the things that keeps him going.
When asked why he believed that musicians like Tekno from Nigeria and 21 Savage from Atlanta were all inspired by him, 50 Cent responded that it was because they had seen the true nature of things. 50 Cent is one of the most well-known rappers in American Hip-hop history after breaking into the public eye in 2003 with the release of his chart-topping album “Get Rich Or Die Tryin.”
The album has sold tens of millions of copies worldwide. With the enormous success of his G-Unit clothing brand and TV shows, he has since evolved into a commercial tycoon. Beyond his big tunes that were well-known in Nigeria, such as “In Da Club,” “Candy Shop,” and “Many Men,” 50 Cent will be remembered by Nigerian fans.
In other developments, 50 Cent said that the upcoming third season of his popular STARZ series BMF will feature 2 Chainz and Ne-Yo in various roles.
