50 Cent & Floyd Mayweather Cover XXL

It’s the Money Team, the Money Team! 50 Cent covers the December 2011/Jan. 2012 issue of XXL 5 times over! In a preview of the cover story, 50 Cent says that he plans to make more “aggressive” music because he doesn’t see that in the current Hip Hop climate:

“I don’t see what I fell in love with,” he says. “So now I gotta make music that reflects what N.W.A made. I have to make music that has the moments that Nas had. I have to make music that has what Biggie offered.” He also discusses his currently untitled 5th solo album: “For me, I’m still up against what I’ve done,” he says. “So in order to top it, I know it’s a difficult task. You know, I see the bloggers. My audience hasn’t grown with me. They keep saying, “Aw, man, I want the old 50!” ’Cause those people, it would take them on a safari. I was bringing them close enough to the animals, without being able to get hurt. I was taking them into my neighborhood, where you can very well get your ass killed.”

Issue hits newsstands on December 6th. Alternate covers after the cut.
