50 Cent offers to mentor One Direction’s Zayn Malik
Fiddy wants the boyband member to become a rapper
50 Cent has said he will tutor One Direction’s Zayn Malik should he ever decide to become a rapper. Malik is said to be quite a good rapper, or so said Naughty Boy when he was asked about him last years, and it’s thought that he might one day pursue a career as an MC.
In an interview with The Sun, 50 Cent said: “If Zayn wants a rap career, just because of who he is, he is going to sell records.”
“But if he wants to be credible he has to stay with the right people.”
Fiddy continued: “I’d happily sign him up to my label, mentor him and have him working with the best rappers on the planet. There is no doubt that members of One Direction are going to launch solo careers and sometimes the bravest go on to be the biggest. Look at Justin Timberlake.”
It remains to be seen if Malik can have Timberlake levels of fame once One Direction eventually disbands but one thing is for certain: he could do a lot worse than having 50 Cent in his corner.
