In a rare Interview with “Uncle Jessie’s Back of the Underground Ruff House,” 50 Cent spoke about his time being signed to Jam Master Jay‘s record label. He explained how Jay taught him how to write songs in a particular format, but he eventually needed to make changes to progress. After meeting Cory Rooney and being introduced to Track Masters, he negotiated a release from Jay’s label and signed with Columbia Records. The interview is from 1998, before 50 Cent was shot and before he released Get Rich or Die Tryin’.
