A bit before Zayn Malik announced he was leaving One Direction, there were rumors that he would venture off on to his own solo career, a la Justin Timberlake. Rapper 50 Cent chimed in at the time about wanting to work with him as a mentor and, well...we shrugged it off and didn't think twice about it. Now that Zayn's departure is a reality (honestly, it still stings), 50 Cent is weighing in on just how much of a JT trajectory Zayn could potentially have ahead of him.

50 told MTV News last week: "His vision on his own is always different from what it is in the group. Like Justin Timberlake, as Justin Timberlake, away from the group - it's a lot of potential."

He added, "That was ballsy of me to say that. Now Justin's mad at me. But it is one of those things that you can see something interesting come out of him selecting what he wants."

Well, it's a cool perspective, anyway...but do you think Zayn and 50 Cent will collaborate at some point?
