Okay, you have to admit all the beef going around in hip hop is getting a bit tired. Everywhere you look some rapper don’t like this rapper, and this rapper don’t like that rapper. I mean, these guys are beefing with each other more than they make music. And there is definitely a shortage of good music in hip hop these days.
Well, the potential new beef started a few days ago from the King Beefer himself, 50 Cent. 50 Cent didn’t care much for a tweet Fabolous made about 50’s new found unity when he had a concert with other New York artists.
In Fabolous’ words “ Its interesting to c 50 Cent unite wit NY artists when he’s 1 of the reasons NY hip hop became so isolated & crumbled..Do u agree NY??
I guess it was a good show 4 NY.. But if u asked 50 a few years ago if he ever saw hisself on stage with any of them he woulda said HELL NO!
I wonder if this is a law in the 50th law of power book??”
Then from 50 Cent’s blog he responded by saying the following:
“Reading what Fab said about me on Twitter was disappointing. I have extended myself to Fab personally to allow him to expand himself as an international Touring Artist. Thought we were Friends but that’s cool.
But there’s more, 50 cent even went as far as citing an excerpt from his new book The 50th Law:
Law #2: Never put too much trust in Friends, Learn how to use Enemies
Be wary of friends—they will betray you more quickly, for they are easily aroused to envy. They also become spoiled and tyrannical. But hire a former enemy and he will be more loyal than a friend, because he has more to prove. In fact, you have more to fear from friends than from enemies. If you have no enemies, find a way to make them.
—50th Law of Power.
Am I 50 Cent or Am I Machiavelli? Dammmm!!!
Now Fabolous responds again from twitter:
At 50’s peak his grind was unmatched, image was bulletproof, music was ignorantly motivational & catchy, even classic. most never hav that
So dont think im takin shots at 50.. Jus that NY show had me a lil puzzled.. But i love NY so i couldnt knock it if i wanted to.
And Then More Fab from twitter : Woke up 2 see my twitter topic of discussion bout da 50 Cent concert was taken out of context. Made what i said look like im hatin or dissin
Def wasnt hatin.. I said if anything it was a good show 4 NY.. And i was invited 2 perform too, BUT i had my own show 2 do at Lincoln U.
And i wasnt dissin 50 either, my opionon was brought on by the history of the 50 Cent’s hip hop career..50 Cent responded to my tweets sayin “he was disappointed & thought we were friends”.. But i dont think i said anything bashing him..I actually tip my hat 2 50 4 all he has done, but n his help 2 the city theres been some hurt 2 the city.. & i dont/didnt blame him entirely.
I retweeted yall perspectives on da 50 concert, good or bad..Not only my views.. So im not against him, jus was unusual 2 c this new unity. So im wrong 4 my opinion? Even to someone as opinionated as 50 has been thru his career on any & everything/one..
& blogs & comment leavers r a part of the sensitivity in discussion.. They want everything to b a beef.. guess, u play in dirt, u get dirty.And im not apologizin’ for my opinion.. Jus explaining my comments that were taken out of context.. Peace my twiggas!!
Hopefully 50 Cent will let this incident go because it’s pretty obvious Fabolous was only speaking his opinion and if anyone knows anything bout openly speaking they’re own opinion it’s 50 Cent.
