Legendary hip-hop icon 50 Cent has never been shy about sharing his opinion – even when it comes to the work of his close friends and peers.

The most recent subject of the rapper’s musings has been Jay-Z’s recent album 4:44, which quickly amassed praise from critics and fans alike following its surprise release last summer.

While far from family-friendly, 50 Cent’s unofficial review of the record generally appeared to agree with its positive reception.

“I listened to that 4:44. I thought it was alright. I liked the s***,” begins 50. “But I’mma keep it a hundred, [the album] was a little too smart. I felt like I was supposed to be wearing like, glasses and tie like a sweater around my waist. It was like Ivy League s***.”

Say what you will, 50 Cent certainly does have a way with words.

The rapper-turned-entrepreneur also went on to discuss the relationship between up-and-coming hip-hop stars and more established acts, such as himself and Jay.

“You can’t be the best rapper at 47 because the new [rappers] are here. They coming with new s*** going on,” he said, humbly advocating for older acts to leave room for newcomers.
