Former PANTERA and current DOWN frontman Philip Anselmo recently interviewed rapper 50 Cent for the Boxing Insider web site, to which Anselmo has been a frequent contributor.
In the introduction to his interview, Anselmo writes, "I am so far removed from pop culture, it’s pitiful. My foundations (for those of you who know me) are well laid and stern to the point of outright deafening indifference . . . especially when it comes to boxing . . and music.
"But fuck all that, that's my problem.
"So, with an intro like the above reads, I gotta say, when I was assigned an interview with 50 Cent, I had no clue who the man was.
"Call me morbid, call me pale, call me a victim of pugilistic dementia, but I must say, speaking to this man was an interesting experience. I was beyond impressed with his smarts, his sense of humor, his accomplishments and his future plans.
"Despite my hardheaded 'opinions' when it comes to the music that pops up randomly on my iPod, as people go, 50 Cent was, and is, a super-class act, and deserves all the accolades he gets."
