50 Cent knows that he made a mistake by releasing two sexual songs, "Candy Shop" and "Amusement Park" back-to-back. In this SOHH exclusive interview 50 warns Lil' Wayne not to make the same mistake with the follow up to his hit record "Lollipop."
50 Cent is the first to admit that his last album Curtis did not live up to expectations. He has even gone so far as to call it a dud on his blog, ThisIs50.com.
Fif attributes his failure to the fact that he directed his material at a female audience." He thinks that Curtis' female driven song, "Amusement Park" was way too similar to "Candy Shop," a single from his previous album, The Massacre.
"I was fascinated with the idea of creating content that was sexual from a male perspective that wasn't obscene and vulgar in any way," 50 told SOHH. "So, I went back to create 'Amusement Park.' The metaphor within 'Amusement Park' and being sexual [and] 'Candy Shop' and being sexual was too close."
According to 50, the public could not accept another female record from him. "If that record came from someone else they would've accepted it like, 'Lollipop,' 50 says of Lil' Wayne's current smash single.
"Because it's the first time that [Wayne is] doing it they go, 'Ok, we like it?' 'Don't we like it?' 'We like Wayne right?' And they agree to do it but he won't be able to do that again."
50 does not think that Lil' Wayne can repeat the success of "Lollipop" with another sexual song. "[If] he comes back with another record that has that type of vibe then they're just gonna go, 'Ok, same thing again'."
