50 Cent and Chris Brown once again hit the studio to create something magical. Fresh off of their remix to “I’m the Man,” Fif and Breezy collab for “No Romeo No Juliet,” which is expected to be featured on Fif’s upcoming album Kanan Reloaded, a follow-up to December’s The Kanan Tape.
The two entertainers exchange some pretty impressive bars, (yes, Chris Brown is rapping) which leads one to think that Drake may not actually be in a lane all by himself. Chris Brown brings his A’ game and 50 Cent brings the G’ out.
What more can I say about this track other than, “You can find it below.”
50 Cent believes that Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj share the same exact opinions when it comes to Drake. Nicki hasn’t responded yet to the beef between Meek and Drake and it feels somewhat odd to 50.
“I think it’s really a Nicki [and] Drake thing going on,” 50 Cent says during an interview with St. Louis’ 104.1 FM. “I would think that he would be conscious of Nicki before he would just say something, when he knows Nicki and Drake have a relationship. Like, they’re down with each other. They’re in the same crew. Even if you just heard it randomly you would be talking to her before you say something publicly about it. Obviously she shares the same views, because she hasn’t really responded to it publicly.”
During the St. Louis 104.1 FM interview, 50 Cent spoke on his use of ghostwriters.
“I wrote everything,” 50 says. “One time I took a line [on] ‘Straight To The Bank.’ Because Kanye [did the chorus], while we were just chilling in the studio he said that. And then I copied the sound that he did—but we in the room, we playing around, we writing. That’s different to somebody writing your song.”
Deeper into the conversation, Fif also spoke about the beef between Wayne and Birdman.
“It just got crazier than I even imagined it could possibly be between the two of them,” 50 says. “They were like father and son relationship… I couldn’t see them actually trying to kill him. The stuff that I hear [going on with Young Thug], I don’t believe that. I can’t believe that he would actually want to kill him.”
50 also spoke on the beef between Ghostface Killah and Action Bronson.
“I don’t know why he said that stuff, man,” 50 Cent says. “I think Ghost gon’ catch him. I won’t lie, I really think he gon’ catch that kid.”
A recent bankruptcy filing by 50 Cent has sparked a whirlwind of hysteria in the entertainment industry and all who follow it. Now the self-proclaimed “King of New York” was quoted saying, “I take all of the jewelry and cars back to the stores.” Whoa!? A lot of onlookers had originally thought that Fif’s bankruptcy was a ploy to protect his assets from the $5 million he was ordered to pay in the case between him and Lastonia Leviston, the mother of Rick Ross‘ daughter. This case stemmed from a sex-tape of Leviston and a former boyfriend that 50 used in a parody to throw jabs at Rick Ross.
Now things are even taking a sharper turn as Curtis Jackson aka 50 Cent testified in a Manhattan courtroom yesterday that his jewelry and cars are all for show. Huh? Fif who was listed by Forbes Magazine as one of the top five richest Hip Hop artists with a net worth of $155 million is now saying that his lifestyle is only a mirage. During the hearing Jackson’s lawyer declares that his client is only worth $4.4 million dollars, which triggered his recent chapter 11 filing. When the Judge asked 50 about selling 38 million records, 50 replied, “I only make 10 cents a record.”
Either Fif is a better act than we ever knew or this is just another example of how treacherous this Hip Hop game can be. What do you think? Is 50 Cent deserving of an Oscar for his portrayal of a broke emcee or is he just another victim of the entertainment industry?
