When I rhyme, something special happen every time
I'm the greatest, somethin' like Ali in his prime
50 Cent compares himself to Muhammad Ali at the prime of his boxing career.
In fact, 50 Cent has often compared rapping and boxing, stating the mentality is the same: everyone wants to feels like they’re greatest when whether they’re in the ring or the studio. 50 was also a boxer himself when he was young.
I was competitive in the ring and hip-hop is competitive too. In so many ways they’re similar. I think rappers condition themselves like boxers, so they all kind of feel like they’re the champ. And if you fall in the position where you’re actually the champ at the time, everyone else feels like you’re their target. That’s me now — I’m the heavyweight champ.
