The administrator of a lie detector test called 50 Cent out for embellishing the truth in his some of his music. The rapper recently sat down with Vanity Fair, who took a different approach to interviewing the TV star. In the Q&A session, Fif was asked a slew of questions while on a polygraph. The questions covered everything from his life in Texas, his discography, Kanye West and more.

While on the topic of his music, the conductor questioned the validity of his song “High All the Time,” highlighting the fact that the emcee is not a smoker. “Do you always lie in your songs?” she asked, to which he responded, “Well I was high all the time, but everybody else was smoking around me.”

The interview then broke down the lyrics to “In Da Club,” focusing mainly on the hook’s opening line, “You can find me in da club/ Bottle full of bub.” “Is the bottle full of bub?” the woman inquired. “When it first opens, yeah,” 50 frankly responded. He later admitted that he’s “filled champagne bottles with ginger ale.”

After the admissions from the “BMF” star, the interviewer desired to know whether he’s failed to be truthful in any of his other records. “Are there any other tracks you lied in?” she asked. 50 Cent then confessed that all of his lyrics are not true. “Yeah, it’s points that you say things, be creative and create,” he explained.

While Fif was open to discuss some of the songs from his catalog, he’s turned down the idea of performing his hit records on a Verzuz. Fat Joe attributes 50’s lack of interest to his career in Hollywood.

“It’s not cause he scared or he’s not one of the greatest who ever lived, he just ain’t fucking with [Verzuz],” Joe said. “I tell you what 50 Cent gon’ be a billionaire, a real billionaire. You gotta understand, 50 Cent got a bunch of TV shows. TV. That’s not rap music. That’s a different type of money.”
