50 Cent has not only explained the reasons behind his feud with Oprah, but the pair resolved their issues on Sunday night's episode of "Next Chapter."

The unscripted, one-on-one interview between the two celebrities took place at 50 Cent's grandparents' home where they discussed their past, including 50 Cent's childhood.

"Next Chapter," which airs on Oprah's OWN, focuses on enlightening conversations with celebrities. Although awkward, 50 and Oprah addressed their previous misunderstandings of one another.

Winfrey previously denounced the use of explicit language and degradation of women in hip-hip music, and 50 divulged that he felt as though it was a personal attack on him.

"I would see moments where you would discuss your feelings on the culture, and everything that was wrong with the culture was on my CD," 50 explained. "And I was like, 'She doesn't like me.'"

In response, the rap star accused Winfrey of focusing on middle-aged white women.

The pair even discussed 50's pet dog named Oprah.

"I heard you had a b---- named Oprah, that's what I heard," said Winfrey.

"I love you," 50 said apologetically, then quipped that he has a cat named Gayle after Winfrey's best friend, Gayle King.

50 Cent, also known as Curtis Jackson, revealed that he had come close to losing his life many times growing up in the rough streets of Queens, New York, and that he credits his grandmother with saving him.

Additionally, the "In Da Club" rapper opened up about his attitude toward life and his religious views.

"You should either pray or worry, don't do both" the rapper told Winfrey during the interview. "If you pray and then worry," he explained, "How do you think that makes God feel?"

The rapper revealed another surprising fact about himself when he opened up about his Street King Movement: it fights famine and its goal is to feed one billion people in Africa.

"I wanted to do things that would create a stronger impression on people," he told Winfrey, noting that his career in music was not enough.

With over six million followers, 50 often posts messages of positivity and strength.

"Take obstacles and turn them into opportunities," the rapper wrote on Twitter Tuesday. "I told my best friend make every moment count."

"Hey don't forget to catch the second half of me on the oprah show this sunday on the OWN NET. Nothing but the BEST," 50 Cent added on Twitter.
