"You know who would probably be fun to work with?...Nicki," 50 Cent said. "Nicki Minaj would be fun to be in a romantic comedy with." he added.

The 46-year-old hip-hop mogul delved into why he chose Nicki and revealed that he related to her due to their upbringing in the South Jamaica, Queens, N.Y.

"I kinda understand her a little bit more than the other people," he explained. "She's tougher. When she’s being an a**hole because she's telling you, 'You’re not going to take advantage of me.'

"The environment, it made her a little more ... Like she's going, 'Don't play with me' before you play with her, because of how the temperament of the environment and how people are where we come from." 50 Cent added.

The Power executive producer is definitely been in a position to make it happen after casting Snoop Dogg for his latest Starz series Black Mafia Family (BMF) – with a special appearance from Eminem.

Last summer, 50 Cent went on Nick Minaj's Queen radio and saluted her for being an "alpha female".

The 'In Da Club' rapper said he understands Nicki, as growing up in their neighbourhood impacted them both in a similar way.

"I love me some Nicki. This n**** actually happens to come from my neighborhood. It happens to be a girl, but that n**** is tough!" he declared.

He continued:"She be harder than the n**** she f*ck with. She be harder. And she’s an alpha female! That motherf**ker tough! You see what I’m saying, son? You got to watch her or she’ll go, she’ll do something that’s pulling a move to assert herself."

"Somethings I don't understand, somethings I know it's just her. And I know the journey, I know the experience, the bumps and bruises from it because I got the similar bumps and bruises on myself. So I always appreciate it, you know what I'm saying?"
