Ask pro-athletes what genre of music they listen to before a big game and many will say hip-hop. So it should come as no surprise that rap veteran 50 Cent listens to his favorite rappers when gearing up for a workout.

“While working out, you can catch Mobb Deep in my playlist,” said 50 Cent during an interview with HipHopDX. He also mentioned Eminem, who recently graced Billboard’s Best Workout Music list.

50 explained why he take his health seriously. “There seems to be no health conscience regimens in hip-hop with all the drugs and alcohol circulating,” he says.

“Generally in America, obesity is an ongoing issue,” 50 added. “You have guys who had successful projects such as [Notorious BIG] and [Big Pun] — they were very talented artists but did not discipline themselves enough physically — so they had to pick up the slack in other areas.”
