Oprah Winfrey and Curtis Jackson better known as 50 Cent sat downat his grandmother’s house and discussed everything from their feud, the use of the N-word and hip hop culture. On their feud 50 explained,
“I would see moments when you would discuss your feelings on the culture and everything that was wrong with the culture was what was on my CD, and I was like, ‘Oh, she doesn’t like me’.
“I was saying, ‘If I can’t be your friend, at least let me be your enemy, so I co-exist.’”
Oprah responded, “That’s interesting… I don’t spend a lot of time looking at people who don’t like me, but I did hear that you said something like… ‘I had white women in my audience that were as old as your grandmother…’ I felt that that was a pointed criticism.”
On the use of the N-Word the rapper said,
“When you’re actually using it with malice in your heart, you can feel the difference… If it’s being used by someone that you know isn’t using it in a racial term, it doesn’t impact the same… I just think you’re identifying with how it originated and it should exist based on that (alone).”
