Now comes buzz that 50 Cent wants to help Zayn out with a solo rap career - so much so that he's offering a huge deal for the former 1D star to jump ship from Simon Cowell's SyCo label.
There are even rumors that 50 has a meeting in the works to talk details with Zayn. 50 Cent recently 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."
He added, "Some of the pop star rappers are a little cringe, and he doesn't want that."
Last we heard from 50 on the Zayn front, he was calling him "hot," explaining, "He's no joke."
Well, he's not lying.
