In a show of mutual respect, 50 Cent has declared 21 Savage‘s “Sneaky” the “hardest sh*t out now.” The declaration comes after 21 Savage openly credited the G-Unit founder as a major inspiration during his interview on Shannon Sharpe’s Club Shay Shay podcast.

During the interview, 21 Savage revealed that 50 Cent’s willingness to share his personal struggles through music and film deeply resonated with him

“50 Cent was a thousand percent [an inspiration],” 21 said. “I looked up to him growing up ’cause he told his story more than a lot of other artists. He had a movie and all type of shit. I knew his story a little more. I was inspired by his story.”

He further told Sharpe that he started rapping seriously after surviving a gun shot wound, similar to 50 Cent who was allegedly shot nine times. 

“That’s when I really just started trying to rap for real. I had made songs playing around and sh*t with friends but that’s when I started putting my money into it.”

Fifty caught wind of his mention in the interview and shared the snippet on Instagram. In the caption, 50 showed love to 21 Savage’s new album. He specifically highlighted “Sneaky” as the album’s standout track, urging fans to “start booming sh*t.”

50 Cent’s endorsement comes as “American Dream” is spending its second frame at No.1 on the Billboard 200 after debuting atop the chart last week with 133,000 equivalent units in the U.S.. The album featuring collaborations with Doja Cat, Lil Durk, Travis Scott, Mariah The Scientist, Young Thug, and more also earned the rapper his biggest streaming week for a solo album, with 169.53 million on-demand official streams.

This week saw 14 songs from 21 Savage’s American Dream album debut on the Hot 100, bringing his career total to 103. He is now just one entry behind NBA YoungBoy and two behind Jay-Z.
