There’s nothing like the softer side of a rapper, when he or she almost sheds a thug tear or subtly smirks when reminiscing on a special someone. In the words — err, tweets — of Jay Z, a rapper whose done such that (the latter at least): “facts only.”
In the Juice series Emoment, I ask a rapper one question: how do you know when it’s love?
50 Cent has learned a thing or two throughout his 10 year-plus career, particularly when it comes to love. Before hitting the stage for his Hang W/ SXSW show in March, Curtis Jackson shared how compromise is key to knowing when sparks are flying.
“You know how you know when it’s love? It’s when you compromise things that you would never do for another person, regardless to how difficult it is for you make the decision to do it… You know I would never do nothing like that for anyone else at any other point. [It’s] the minute you find yourself making a compromise and trying to create balance between you and someone else because you want to continue that friendship.”
