50 Cent: I Feel Like Carlton Banks When I Listen To JAY-Z's '4:44' Album


When JAY-Z dropped his 4:44 album last June, his fans were shook. We've never heard the rapper be this vulnerable in his music and we were intrigued. 

As he discussed his martial issues, schooled the game on being moguls like him, and more; Jigga's project received much praise. It was arguably one of the best albums released in 2017. However, 50 Cent didn't seem to like it, too much. The "Power" creator went on social media to express that 4:44 sounded too "smart" for him. 

On Tuesday (Jan. 16) night in an interview on "Conan," Fif elaborated about this opinion. "Hip-hop culture's connected to youth culture," 50 begins. "The kids gon' bring new innovative stuff. He just had the maturity bleed off into the material. So you look at it and go—it's cool for me, like, in my car I'm listening to it. But the kids, I don't see them actually listening to it."

That's when Conan recalled 50 saying that 4:44 sounded like "golf course music." The NY rapper replied, "I felt like Carlton Banks when I was listening to it." 

Really, bruh?
