50 Cent has revealed that his rookie year in 2003 was such a fun time, especially when it came to all the women that came across his way.

During his interview with Men's Health where the rapper reflected on his fitness journey and hip-hop's 50th anniversary, Fif recalled how great it was being one of the biggest rappers in 2003. According to the media mogul, becoming a sex symbol had him in the presence of all different types of women. 

"2003 was so much fun. There was so much energy around me as a new artist that you can't recreate," 50 Cent said. "Between 2003 and 2005, I've seen every version of every kind of vagina out there. I kept being a guy who would have what he could have and not what he wants, and then when it shifts so fast that you go, 'What? What happened?' You're not prepared for it. And they're so excited."

He continued, "You're going, 'me?' Then you just have the greatest time of your life. Now look, in 2005, you start feeling like you hot. So all of a sudden, you have transformed. You're a bad bitch. So now that you're this bad bitch, you're looking at the girls looking at you, and you're going, 'Oh, she think she gonna get me?'

"And now you think you're so hot that you're running from the girls. The afterparty is not happening in your hotel room anymore because you have this newfound value for yourself. You're running to be in the room by yourself."

Last year, 50 admitted he dropped one of his biggest records, "21 Questions," to improve his love life. In an interview with MSNBC's Ari Melber, the Queens native revealed he wanted the song to bring more women into his life and have them think they could "fix" him. 

"I wanted ladies to feel like maybe they could fix me, and I had done so many push-ups. So I felt like, 'This is gonna be good for my love life!' I'm dead serious," 50 said.

He added, "I thought that they would see some way that they could possibly fix me or understand me in a different way. And their favorite line on the song was, 'I love you like a fat kid loves cake.' When I wrote it, I was thinking, I love you, but too much of you is no good for me. Like a fat kid loves cake."
