The rapper has previously made it public he wasn’t a fan of Winfrey, calling her out for “not liking hip-hop culture” and even naming his dogs after Oprah and her BFF (and his former hook-up) Gayle King. However, when the media bigshots both sat down for a meet, it was all love.
“So today my grand mother said you on oprah now boy you made it,” Fif told fans as he tweeted a snap posing with Winfrey.
Oprah was equally surprised about how well the meeting went: “Great conversation about rap culture, fatherhood, love, and life. He describes himself as two people—Curtis and 50 Cent—I was fascinated to hear his description of them both. Really glad I did it. Really liked him.”
Oprah also revealed a list of five things she’d learned from her chat with Fif:
1. He meditates regularly.
2. Received his mantra from Deepak Chopra, whose book he’s currently reading.
3. He was not allowed to use curse words in his grandmother’s house and still follows that rule.
4. A recent conversation with philanthropist Ray Chambers was life changing for him.
5. He believes either pray or worry … no need for both.
