I'm not gonna respond to the Nas subliminal except that Nas went platinum so obviously hes still very relevant in a hip hop landscape where no one is selling including his whole camp.

What percentage of MCs in hip-hop do you think are actually intelligent?
You have different kinds of people. You have people that are extremely book smart that lack common sense so they dont know whats going to affect their audience. They have more information than me based on reading. For instance, Nas is a really smart guy. He reads books constantly. We were around him on the Nastradamus tour. He was almost weirder than me cause we would go to breakfast and hed be there reading a book. Conceptually, I think thats what made him drift away from what his initial audience enjoys from him and why hes not hot right now.

Because he reads too much?
Yes. Hes feeding you too much information in the music and they dont actually want it. Hes like a teacher. I was in love with KRS-One when he came with Criminal Minded and The Bridge Is Over. That was theme music to what was going on at that time. And when he started teaching, he lost them. Cause it was like, What is he talkin about?

But youre obviously really intelligent.
Absolutely. Smart enough not to overwhelm people with information.

But theyre still getting information from you.
Right, but in different ways and in pieces. Anything [that] changes too fast is no good[the audience] isnt sure whats going on. Its like you watching an actor portray a character in a film that you really enjoy. Then afterwards, he sits on the couch on a talk show and this guy is so artistic that youre not sure if you [really] f**kin like him.

Why, cause theyre acting?
Yeah. Theyre doing something thats totally That may not even be a small portion of their actual character. And then when you see them after the fact, they give you something thats so artsy.

But the same can be said about you. Do I think if 50 Cent was in a situation where he had to protect himself or he had to hurt somebody, would he blast someone? I might think that. But also
Under them circomestances

I would think 50 is too smart to do something like that.
Now listen, Ill explain this to you. Under certain circomestances when my back is against the wall, yes. But then you have a choice. To my knowledge, when your back is against the wall, either you can be victimized or you find a way out of that situation the best way you know how. I dont say, When I see you Ima pop you or Im gonna make it hot this summer. I dont say those types of things. Thats what [people] say to me. So now my antennas go up when they come around because you said that. I dont believe you like that [but] Ima give you the benefit of the doubt. When you do something that aint right, if you get hurt, you get hurt.

Camron said hes gonna make it hot this summer, right?
Yeah. I dont know who hes talkin to, like on what level? And Im not responsible for the actions of others after you say that cause he doesnt even know what heat is. Cause his track record and the lil thing that happened in D.C., thats not heat. Thats a random incident. Heat is when you cant come outside cause its gonna go down.

So even in this corporate environment that youre dealing with, youre saying you have to consider something like what Camron says seriously?
You have to consider everything Cam says seriously on some level. You can brush it off, [but] then youre not on point. Youre not paying attention. Ask me why I dont drink. Is it because I dont enjoy drinking? Or is it because I know drinking affects my judgment and Ill start seeing things differently? Ill start seeing a guy thats staring at me because hes intrigued by the success Im having and he sees himself similar to me cause he grew up under the same circomestances [or hes] looking at me like he might want a problem. You feel what Im saying? There is no significance of success. The significance is coming from where I came from. Im from the bottom.

When Cam called Hot 97 to talk to you about your Koch Records comments, you were being articulate, smart and you backed your argument up. But then he engaged you in a way that was a bit more belligerent.
My initial intention when we started that conversation wasnt to cause an altercation. But after an altercation is caused, I have no intentions of resolving it. I dont believe you can resolve a situation with someone you didnt initiate. If they caused it, theres nothing you can do on your end. You didnt actually ask for it so its there. And you make ityou pound away at him with the consistency of releasing quality material til his ass is dust. Hes gone and everybody that surrounds him gets it in the end, too. This is why I tell him Jim Jones should be the boss of Dipset and now you see Jim Jones say hes not f**kin with Cam.

Yeah, but you knew they werent really getting along.
I already knew the circomestances behind that cause I do my research. At the end of the day, [Jim Jones] is a more credible artist than Camron is. Youre as hot as your last hit record. His last hit was f**kin Horse & Carriage. Hell make comparisons to Lloyd Banks sales with Jimmy Jones sales. So what? Is my worst your best? Why are you not comparing yourself to me? Considering hes supposed to be Dipsets boss, while Im supposed to be the headman for G-Unit. Maybe its because he sold 200,000 his last album and I sold 9.8 million.

Are you cool with Jim Jones?
I dont have a problem with him. I think they got an idiot in the lead position. You gotta make the changes hes making right now. I think they got some talent over there. Why would I want to destroy [Dipset] considering we have nothing going on from New York City? If it was up to me, Dipset would be hot. You just got an idiot in your frontline. You call him your leader? He just got punched in his eye. To be honest, thats their responsibility to fix thatall of them.

Did you see Cams YouTube video while he was on vacation?
Yeah, hes a fool. Why would you shoot a video from poolside [in] your little polka dot underwear? Doesnt make sense.

What about him showing his eye to the camera?
I think hes a fool for even showing me his eye. What are you proving? Youre showing me your eye two weeks after [you allegedly got punched]? We havent seen you for two weeks. You had ice on it for two weeks. [Laughs] Yo! Hes incredible, man!

Is Cams career over?
Hes been over. Cam had Columbia [Records] spend marketing dollars on him when he was with Untertainment. He had Def Jam spend marketing dollars when he was on Roc-A-Fella. Now hes in a graveyard. The majors have no interest in spending money on him because they know the marketing dollars thats spent is going to be in vain. [But] Jimmys done something thats significanthe came out of the graveyard. His career started on Koch, which means he can go do his deal with the majors [and] he can go do a publishing deal. The kinda money he gon receive in those positions based on the success of his last project is gonna make, when he says, ballin, real.

Talk about your next album after Curtis.
Before I Self Destruct. Itll be out February 4 [and] Im about three songs away from completing it. Ill be done with that record and that really is my last studio requirement under my Shady/Aftermath/Interscope deal. Cause after that is a greatest hits record.

Will you stop rapping after that?
If I make music, itll be organically. Itll be zero pressure towards releasing it in a time span. Ill make sure everything thats on there I feel like this record is incredible but Ill take [my] time. Itll probably be like 60 or 70 records before I decide to pick 10 and then just put those 10 records out.

With so much revenue coming in from other ventures, does rapping even make sense at this point?
Well, it makes great the energy changes when you got good music out. Thats all its really for. Im in a great financial space in [my] life. Im proud of my decisions. While people were trying to make their own alcoholic beverage and do different things, I went towards Vitamin Water. Im health conscious. I work out. Im actually physically training now for a boxing film, so theyll see the difference in my physical because Im working harder. They asked a question on 106 & Park if I took any

Steroids or something like that?
I guess thats a question they see when you make a physical change on any level.

Who are you training with?
With a personal trainer. He just brought me a diet supplementary card and I have a regiment. They probably cant afford to do what Im doing right now.

Who are they?

Other artists. I couldnt afford to do it prior to the success, like nobody in my camp is doing what Im doing. Nobody else in my camp has a nutritionist and a trainer and has them follow you around. You pick up a cookie, Okay, put it down. You see what Im saying? Like everything possible hes watching you like youre doing something wrong when youre ready to go the refrigerator.

Werent you trying to hook M.O.P. with something like that?
Yeah, I had M.O.P. live at my house for six months.

Is it true you were offering them a G for every pound they lost?
Yeah, M.O.P., they just aint after the same thing. They are a great group. They got music Id love to put out. Im just not going to bet on a horse that got three legs in this climate. It wont win a race.

Did your beef with Game cause any weirdness between you and Dr. Dre?
It always did, just in my head. Im not even sure he knows. He might read this and be surprised that I said it. But Dre didnt voice his opinion knowing I gave Game everything that made him what he is. And that didnt matter. It shouldnt matter that [Dre] gave me In Da Club. He brought something creatively to the table that helped spawn my entire career and I respect him for it. On a higher level, Em for me is like next to my grandmother. He did things for me when I couldnt do them myself. I needed him at that point and he actually came through for me.
