Why 50 Cent Think Depression Is A Luxury

Depression, according to 50 Cent, is a luxury that people who come from where he comes from cannot afford.

50 stated why he doesn't subscribe to despair or allow himself to be depressed in a recent interview with Big Boy's Neighborhood.

“Certain things I don’t believe in, based on…,” 50 began before switching his thoughts. “I think the things you go through make you who you are. And in my journey, there’s certain things that I don’t even let into my system like that. Like, I think depression is a luxury. Because where I’m from, you can’t afford to be depressed.” 

“You gotta pay the bills, right? So you gotta go to work,” he continued. “You gotta get up, gotta go do what you gotta do. You got people right now that’s at work that don’t feel like being there. But they got responsibilities so they feel uncomfortable while they’re working, while they’re doing what they gotta do.”

He concluded: “When these guys get in a slump and they just decide they’re not gonna do anything – I’m like, where they do that at?”

During the same interview, 50 stated that he wished his longtime buddy and G-Unit rapper Tony Yayo had blown up instead of him so that he could have managed their business affairs carefully.

“My solo album took off so big that I just brought them with me,” 50 said. “So it was clear that it was me creating opportunity for everybody else in the crew, but we was all together. I wish it would have been Yayo, because then I coulda did all of the business.”

“If he woulda did what 50 Cent did, then I would have been running the whole thing,” he continued. “It would still be two of us. He’d still be 50 cent as the artist and I’d be the largest asset to us.”

Fif also announced that he's reconnected with Dr. Dre to work on a new album, after previously stating that he planned to release new songs this year.
