"I feel like even down to the ‘I’ll Whip Your Head Boy’ on the ‘Get Rich Or Die Tryin” soundtrack, I went into a different direction because I was trying to save the Olivia project," he explained. "I went for ‘Best Friend’ and had [Olivia] create a remix to it, and played that version and shot a video for it, when ‘I’ll Whip Your Head Boy’ was already going. In the club, that was their choice.
"I’m like ‘I’m a million in on this project, so let me get this off, and right after you come off ‘Best Friend’, you can drop your single and we can just go from there," 50 continued.
However, the formula didn’t work, as everyone already knows. Today, he questions the decision he made, admitting he may take Jay-Z approach to helping fellow artists next time.
"I made so many sacrifices based on people I brought around. I need to take a page outta Jay’z book because he don’t compromise himself at all for them," said 50.
According to 50, he and Olivia haven’t spoken since she left the label.
