Mega rap star 50 Cent recently addressed rumors about his undercover beef with Lil' Wayne.
The G-Unit leader's new issues with Weezy reportedly stem from an alleged diss song aimed at 50.
According to 50 Cent, certain aspects of the song "Play This on the Radio" are in response to a track by Wayne titled "Louisianimal," which originally appeared on a mixtape by the Empire. (Prefix Mag)
Upon hearing a negative Vitamin Water reference and recording the response track, 50 also issued a warning.
"I really don't look at him like he's in competition, you gotta have a lot of consistency before we put him in a space where he's equivalent -- he had a great album -- but he makes a lot of records and I think he's gonna exhaust the public with his sound," 50 said. "Canibus was a talented artist and he came at the wrong time towards LL Cool J. Now, if he makes the mistake of responding, and then we go back and forth and my album is what I believe it is, and it hits the streets as hard as it's gonna hit it, then how does your next record feel? It damages him completely at this point." (ThisIs50)
The speculated friction between both artists has caught the attention of various blogs.
On his way back from seeing Ballerina P in Upstate N.Y., Curtis calls in to speak on some subjects. It is exactly what you would expect, but to be fair you can find a rundown of the 26 minute rant after the jump. -Lil Wayne is supposed to say sorry for the diss even though it's old. (Nah Right)
An official response from Weezy's camp has yet to be issued.
