50 Cent isn't afraid to say what's really on his mind.

As evidenced by his latest interview with GQ magazine, in which he opens up about relationships, family and a few former friends following his rise to fame after the release of his 2003 album Get Rich or Die Tryin.

"I think friendship is the strongest form of relationship," he tells writer Zach Baron, dishing out advice for his love life. "Don't ever forget to be friends. And you be conscious. Because there's a point that your friendship would develop that it has so much value that it would become priceless. And at that point, you should consider marriage."

While the rapper has never been married, he does have two children (with two different women), although he admits his relationship with his oldest son is strained. 

"Me and my son, we don't have a relationship anymore," 50 said of his 17-year-old son Marquise. "It's based on his mom. He's adopted her way of thinking."

The actor also explained the reason behind his falling out with Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo, two members of 50's G-unit.

"I enabled these guys," he confessed, "I wouldn't have been a friend if I didn't help them. But helping them hurt them."

As for whether he misses having his two former pals in his life? "Not really. Not now. I make adjustments...Maybe I was paying them to be friends."

50 also shared his candid thoughts on P.Diddy—"he's a sucker," the rapper stated before insisting he does not "celebrate" conflict, and he revealed the reason why he left Interscope records. 

"When people couldn't care less about you actually being successful, you can feel it," he said. 

Despite his ups and downs over the course of his Hollywood career, the 38-year-old star is preparing for the release of his comeback album Animal Ambition.

"[Animals] will kill us," 50 explained of the record name. "Every single one of us."

And it's safe to say Mr. Curtis Jackson wants to lead the pack.
