Although Fif's relationship with last protege The Game ended up going sour, he's determined not to let it put him off discovering new stars in-the-making with the help of Dre.
"Dre and I were actually talking about a new artist, working together on a new project." 50 Cent explained.
"I said, 'Just because we had a car accident, that doesn't mean we're not going to drive again - it just means we had an accident with that one.' He laughed at me."
"He said, 'All right. I'll give it a try,' because he was unsure about how I would feel about helping with another new artist."
"Obviously Dre can create the best possible production for the artist and groom him to the right space. But going to introduce him to the general public would be something you want 50 to go do."
This month sees 50 Cent releasing his new album 'Before I Self Destruct'.

In-store sections for DJ equipment will be available, building on last year’s drive to add sections devoted to music instruments. Club Beats will sell a variety of specialty-audio products as well, including Apple products such as the iPod. Interactive stations will be available in select stores, for customers to try out the gear before purchase.
Founded by hip-hop artist Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine, Chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M Records, Beats Electronics was selected because of its commitment to giving the average listener a professional-quality listening experience through their headphones. Monster Cable, meanwhile, promises "make music sound better" in its ads.
"Dre and I feel that Best Buy and Brian Dunn's commitment to the quality of sound in music, along with their aggressive promotion and marketing of popular culture, makes this the perfect place to launch Club Beats," said Iovine.
Best Buy is launching the concept in 300 stores. Seven locations will include bigger, more thoroughly comprehensive retail areas that Best Buy is using to kick off the debut; a Miami kickoff will feature local DJs, a Richfield, MN, event will include remix-hoppers LMFAO.
Best Buy sees a growing interest not only in DJing, particularly with the recent release of DJ Hero, but also in the concern for the sound quality of music.
"Entertainment has long been the heart and soul of Best Buy. Our customers have always looked to us as a resource for music in a variety of formats," said Brian Dunn, Best Buy's CEO. "With Club Beats, the latest in sound quality and music technology will be available to all of our customers who want to bring music to life in a fresh way and unleash their inner DJ."
Best Buy hopes their new DJ-focused offering will corner the developing market in mainstream retail. "It may not be simple to find these products in a mainstream environment-either you have to know what you need, or you have to talk to someone who is in the industry," said Wendy Fritz, svp of merchandising for mobility for Best Buy. "What we're trying to say is 'hey you can do this,' and when they come into the store our Blue Shirts can say 'these are the three or four products you need to get started.'"

He took to Twitter to announce that he was delaying his fourth album The R.E.D. Album until 2010, attributing the move to his label and one highly-esteemed doctor. “Album is Officially pushed back. says Interscope, so that I can finish wit Dre without having to rush him, myself or the album,” he wrote.
The project, most recently scheduled for December 15, will now be released two months later on February 16. “R.E.D. album’s new release is 2/16/10,” he tweeted. “If for some reason the date changes I will holla at y’all . had to push it back so that me & Dre can wrap it up the right way !!!”
The delay comes a week after the rapper released his buzz single, “Krazy” featuring Gucci Mane and Timbaland, and lead single, the Cool & Dre-produced “Big Money,” on the Internet.
HardknockTV took a few to speak with Rakim as he reiterated the fact that creatively, they were in two completely different places and although no longer under him, he was able to leave Dre with a gift for the future.
“The last I spoke to him, I had did something for him maybe like a year ago when he was just starting to put together his album. I did something on one of the tracks, but I don't know which songs is making his album.”
According to Rakim, some of the joints they did together have already been leaked.
Writing via Twitter, Game revealed more details surrounding his forthcoming release.
"Goin back in wit Dre tomorrow to finish my album," he wrote Monday (November 2). "the MATH is bout to do a full 360 again. 'DETOX' is crack & R.E.D. is coke.. take a sniff me & Snoop's album drop on the same day. December 8th !!! if you havin trouble findin em. mines is R.E.D. & his might be blue lol....

West coast sound - similar to Chronic and 2001.
Brand new unique sound - just like he reinvents his sound and sets trends. What Bishop Lamont describes as 'UFO technology'.
Hitman storytelling concept - Concept of 'through the eyes of the a Hitman'. Sort of like a Hip Hop musical, where each guest on the album is an actual character.
