Terror Squad leader Fat Joe has called out 50 Cent's street credibility and questioned why the rapper has kept quiet since his jewelery robbery last year in Africa.
Along with dissing Fif, the Bronx, New York-bred emcee described the respect he received when touring the country.
"I'ma show you that footage of Joe walking through the hood in Angola," Crack promised. "I can't believe that one. Man look you in your eye, yap you and walk off? That's amazing. I never seen no sh*t like that in my life...That p*ssy was shocked...It's irrelevant [if 50 got the chain back.] You get robbed in front of America? This is what I'm saying, did he get robbed in front of America? This is my sh*t, get the chain back? That's that bullsh*t, a n*gga get robbed and then you send your man 'cause he know him and get the chain back? N*gga you the illest gangsta? You the killer of all killers and n*gga robbing you on TV? He got robbed on TV. Never seen no sh*t like that in my whole life. That's incredible, Smack. Ask him about that sh*t because he's been keeping it real low though. I ain't hear from that n*gga in a minute. He ain't tryin' to argue with n*ggas, 'Yo, let's keep the fat n*gga quiet, let's keep Game quiet, let's keep everybody quiet and it'll die over.'"

Joey previously proclaimed his impact on the continent of Africa and indirectly joked about Fif's robbery earlier this year.
"Every week I'm in Africa," Joe said in a video. "I'ma start showing you sh*t you ain't ever seen in your life. All different parts of Africa. I done been to everywhere...Ghana, I done did Ghana. I live in Angola. So, you know, it's not dangerous like people say. I know people got robbed over there. I got footage of me in the barber shop, hanging in the hood, hanging out with everybody on the corner, having a great time. It's beautiful in Angola...So you know, King of Africa man. Stay tuned, you gonna find out a lot about Africa real soon." (World Star Hip Hop)
Fif's incident took place while performing in Angola around May 2008.
50 Cent Cent had his necklace stolen by a fan during a concert in Angola. The incident, which took place as the rapper was onstage, was captured on video by a fan. In the video, the music stops as the person grabs the necklace and climbs back into the crowd. Responding to the incident on his website, 50 said security at the concert had been "limited" and "fans were able to interact with the group onstage". Contrary to the fans video, the rapper claims his own footage of the incident shows he "pushed him off the stage and jumped into the crowd and then all hell broke loose." (Gigwise)
Aside from possibly beginning another rap beef with 50, Joe announced his upcoming album J.O.S.E. 2 would be pushed back over the weekend.
"I got bad news for everyone," Joe wrote on Twitter unmodified. "My album got pushed back. Monday I will have the new date!!!!!! I'm just as upset as ya!!!! CRACK!!!" (Fat Joe's Twitter)
Originally slated to drop Tuesday (May 19), Joey has not yet provided his album's new release date.
