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.
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.”
