In an interview with King on On Larry King Now 50 Cent responds to media criticism:
I’ve seen so many things said about me in social networking at points. When you don’t anticipate it it lands a little harder on you. This I can telegraph, I can see what’s gonna come from people when they see this in advance. It’s a move that’s necessary for me to make at this point so I didn’t allow myself to create that big red/white bullseye on my back when I become the person that people consistently come to.
