50 Cent Responds to Snoop Dogg Calling Him 'A Legend in Rap Forever': "Means Way More Then a Award"
Despite representing opposite coasts, 50 Cent and Snoop Dogg have maintained a solid friendship for the better part of two decades.
In their decorated Hip Hop careers, the G-Unit and Death Row icons have achieved a lot, but Snoop says he's still learning from 50's greatness.
In November, Snoop Dogg showed 50 Cent immense love by calling him a legend in rap and saying that he's still taking notes from him to this day.
“50 is going to be a legend in rap forever,” Snoop stated. “His records, movies, shit he did just changed the whole game of New York, to run New York for a little bit and put that New York spirit back in the game. He did that. He figured that shit out and he got that shit on lock.”
“I’m a student right now and I’m tryna learn from him. It’s true, you can teach an old dog new tricks — it’s if he’s willing to listen.”
50 Cent re-posted the clip on Instagram late Monday (March 21), thanking Snoop Dogg for the kind words.
“@snoopdogg that shit you just said means way more then a award to me,” he replied.
Russell Simmons hopped into the comments section to show his appreciation for 50 Cent and Snoop Dogg, writing, “And I’m still learning from both of you.”
