50 Cent initially set out to take embattled rap star Chief Keef under his wing.
But the “Murder By Numbers” rapper decided to fall back after Keef didn’t take heed to the advice he provided.
During a radio interview with Hartford Hot 93.7’s Jenny Boom Boom, 50 Cent spoke on Keef’s legal woes and his offer to steer the “Finally Rich” rapper in the right path.
“Chief Keef project is the 50 Cent project. It’s the same project,” 50 told Hot 93.7.
50 explained Keef is heavily influenced by the environment he comes from.
“In the beginning, he’s completely influenced by his environment. That’s the nightmare,” 50 Cent said.
Keef, he said, is “going to get bumped around” if he continues down the same path.
Fif says in order for Keef to be at the “highest point” in his career, he needs to be “conscience” of his actions and what’s going on around him.
“I was actually attracted to the Chief Keef thing,” 50 said. “I was like I can help him. I know what to do.
“He didn’t listen, so I wouldn’t offer that to the general public, 50 Cent continued. “To reach out to him and actually talk to him, I did that. He’s a man. He’s a young man. My son is a year younger. When I’m talking to him, he don’t have to take it. I’m not his father. That’s his business. There’s certain things that I look at and go ‘if you play your hands this way, it can be good.’ If you go the other ways, you gon have a hard time, man. The bumps in the road, they’re there for you, it’s not like you’re exempt to everything else that’s there.”
Fif sent shockwaves through the Hip Hop community in late 2012 after requesting to link up with the Chicago rapper via a Twitter message, reading, “if you still in new York come see me.”
The rap titan even gave Keef one of the biggest co-signs of his career, crowning the “I Don’t Like” rapper as Hip Hop’s “best new artist.”
“Hip Hop best new artist @chiefkeef hands down. SMSaudio,” he wrote.
50 Cent told Power 92 in Chicago he wouldn’t mind working with the up-and-coming O’Block rapper.
“He got that kind of energy,” 50 Cent told Power 92. “He feels street. The things that I’ve heard from him had a hard edge to it. It might be a cool little thing to put together.”

The two later collaborated on the song “Hate Being Sober” from the Keef’s solo debut album “Finally Rich.”
But their relationship soon soured after Keef missed an important video shoot (financed by 50 Cent) for the single.
The rap veteran tweeted his dissatisfaction with Keef’s carelessness via Twitter, writing, “Its not funny @ChiefKeef didn’t sell any records yet,they will pull the plug on him.SMSAUDIO.”
50 Cent warned the Chicago emcee his arrogance could possibly get him dropped from the label.
Fif suggests Keef places himself in a better surrounding.
“If you stay really, really close to the environment you’re in from the very beginning, he’s going to be subjected to the same things that are there,” 50 Cent said.
