50 Cent: 'Some people were afraid of me from the very beginning'
50 Cent has revealed that "people were afraid" of him when he first started out.
During an interview with Muscle & Fitness magazine, the 'In Da Club' hitmaker explained that he feels as though people respect him now but it has been a long journey:
"I’ve gained respect from the public. But I think some people were afraid of me from the very beginning. The trophy would mean that maybe the kids would want to be 50 Cent. But kids bought (album Get Rich or Die Tryin’) or it wouldn’t have been so successful. But they didn’t want to give trophies to it.”
He went onto add that people still respond incredibly well when he performs his early material and it's great to know that those fans will always be there: "I mean, I could just play the first record. People love the material so much that it makes the time period. People tell me, ‘Yo, you are my college years.’ Those people don’t move."
