Yep, the 'Candy Shop' rap star has spoken out once again about how he wants to help he former One Direction star become a bonafide rapping solo superstar. Errr… what are you waiting for Zayn?
50 Cent told The Mirror, "I want it to happen. I can make him a lot of money and he can make me a lot of money. The point I am making is he needs to be working with the right producers, artists, and people in the genre. Some of the pop star rappers are a little cringe, and he doesn’t want that.”

"I'd happily sign him up to my label, mentor him and have him working with the biggest rappers on the planet," he explained.
