50 Cent Is the Future
No Mercy No Fear
In 50's world, make-believe doesn't exist, save for poseurs like Ja Rule and Murder Inc. ("Explain it to the niggas in your 'hood, nigga. They know you fucking fronting, nigga; talkin' all that gangsta shit on the record . . . Ask around in my 'hood, nigga. Read the Daily News,nigga, you see them talk about me, nigga. I'm in the middle of all kinds of shit.") Nothing is sacred and even less is safe. The A-rabs crashed into the fuckin' buildings, he was shot nine times outside his childhood home, but he don't walk with a limp.
50 Centthe military posturing of his Guerrilla Unit, his love of bulletproof vests, big, big guns and all things explosiveis all about self-preservation, color-coded alerts be damned. When offered police protection on the night of Jam Master Jay's death, 50, saying that he felt safer in his own capable hands, left town, presumably with a small arsenal in tow. Try to picture Nas or Jay-Z doing that.
