50 Cent Expresses Desire for Long-Awaited Lil Wayne Collaboration - WhatsOnRap

50 Cent and Lil Wayne discussing collaboration.

In a recent interview with Capital XTRA, 50 Cent has openly expressed his heartfelt desire to collaborate with none other than Lil Wayne, placing him at the pinnacle of his wishlist for yet-to-be-accomplished musical partnerships.

When asked about which hip-hop artist he would most like to work with, the G-Unit powerhouse, speaking candidly to hosts Robert Bruce and Shayna Marie, revealed, "I didn't do one with Wayne directly. He's one of the ones that, you know, Wayne been trained."

Despite the absence of any previous joint musical endeavors, 50 Cent reminisced about his early career experiences, sharing a surprising connection with the New Orleans rap icon. Back in the year 2000, both artists found themselves on the star-studded Cash Money and Ruff Ryders tour, a monumental 40-city arena trek headlined by DMX, Juvenile, and Eve. This epic event also featured the likes of Swizz Beatz, The LOX, Big Tymers, B.G., Drag-On, and Turk. At the time, a young 50 Cent held the role of the opening act, yet the journey was merely a prelude to the greatness that was to come.

"People don't know, I was on the Cash Money/Ruff Ryders tour - before they opened the curtain," he revealed. "Before the show started, people were still walking in and all, and I was doing my thing. They thought I was lightweight, but then I came back around."

While 50 Cent's enthusiasm to hit the studio with Lil Wayne is undeniable, the music industry has its own ideas about the two hip-hop titans. Many have expressed a preference to witness a Verzuz battle between the two iconic artists. However, this dream scenario seems to have been quashed. In a later statement, Verzuz co-creator Swizz Beatz dashed hopes of this hypothetical matchup, asserting that he wouldn't entertain the idea of a 50 Cent vs. Lil Wayne battle due to their unique and distinct artistic styles.

Amidst the ongoing conversations about collaboration and competition, fans can't help but hold onto the hope that someday, these two hip-hop giants will unite their talents in a historic musical creation. Whether it's in the recording studio or on the Verzuz stage, the anticipation for a remarkable collaboration between 50 Cent and Lil Wayne continues to captivate the hip-hop community, paving the way for an exciting future in the world of rap.
