50 Cent gets candid in a special feature from The Big Issue, a U.K. magazine sold by the homeless and long-term unemployed.
“If I could talk to my teenage self, I’d tell him to focus on music with a stronger intensity. He could still have this career without going through all the things I went through,” he says in the feature called “Letter to My Younger Self.”
The mogul also has regrets about love. “Thinking about relationships — I think back to when I was with someone and that person could have been the person I was going to be with for the rest of my life but I didn’t have the references yet to know there was something special there,” 50 says.
The rapper even reflects on his personal losses, specifically the death of his grandmother last September from cancer. “I’ve seen a lot of people pass in the neighborhood, I’ve lost them to motorcycles or altercations or drugs,” he said. “But none of them impacted like when my grandmother died. She was the love of my life.”
