G-Unit's Tony Yayo denied that 50 Cent is the aggressor in his conflicts with Lil Wayne and said their past feuds have been equally "fair."
The "Talk of New York" also said Fif will only name drop an individual if there is a substantial dispute rather than subliminally dissing.
"I don't think Lil Wayne is a hater like that, the best clash at the top," Yayo said about 50 and Weezy. "It is what it is...[50 didn't diss him alot,] not really, not really, you think so? I think people think 50 takes stabs when 50's not really taking stabs. When 50 takes a stab, he's gonna say your name. Wayne threw the shot at him, with the Vitaminwater so it's a fair share. Right? Fair is fair. But to me, that really ain't nothing. Fif got money, sometimes he just likes to play around and do what he do. That n*gga's money is on a whole 'nother level. Like Wayne is an excellent artist, he sold three million records, but you gotta think, 50 sold 11 million records, Eminem sold 16 million records, 50 did 1.4 [million] on his second album in his first week and even with the Kanye [West] thing, n*gga still did 749 [thousand], people looked at him like 'Oh, he took an L.' F*ck outta here, 800 thousand your first week? It's like, 50 is 50, he got money, he's doing movies with [Robert] De Niro and [Al] Pacino now. But I doubt he hating on Wayne, Wayne is doing his thing right now. And you know the best always clash at the top." (Vlad TV)
50 Cent recently spoke on the lack of lyrical substance within rap and why Lil Wayne's longevity in the rap game takes away from his street credibility.
"There's artists out there that I can say I enjoy," Fif explained during a Howard University book conference earlier this month. "I still possess the ability to be a fan. If not, I would feel like I'd be out of touch if I couldn't listen to somebody else's work, get excited about it, feel like it was done well. There's guys out there that write amazing punchlines and yet they have no substance, they can't fit the song structure. Like it's the guy you see battling other guys with amazing lines that make you say 'Wow, he's talented.' -- Did somebody out there say Weezy? He grew up on tv. He's been on since he was 14 years-old, 13. So, if you think about it, there ain't a point where any of those lyrics could actually be factual." (YouTube)
Prior to making a surprise appearance at Lil Wayne's America's Most Wanted tour alongside Soulja Boy Tell Em, Fif dissed Weezy on countless occasions including his "Try Me" record.
"Fat f*ck playing Wii Fit Nintendo/Have another tattoo, here's another tattoo," 50 rapped referring to Rick Ross. "Run into my goons soon, have a new bullet wound/Officer Ricky, radio for backup/See ya a** anyway, you know I'm gon' act up/You wanna play with me when I don't wanna play/Have my n*ggas whip the skin off ya a** all day...This n*gga's an appetizer. Where you at Wayne? You the full course meal, Wayne. You awfully quiet." ("Try Me")
Cash Money Records co-founder Baby previously explained why Wayne never took up a rap challenge with 50.
"We got money man," Baby explained. "We on islands and jets f*cking h*es. We ain't trippin' off petty sh*t. We got money. Ain't ever a dark day in my life, why won't I go spend 250 right now, I'll burn that b*tch...We just did a deal for a 100 mil, we got money for real. It ain't no game. We ain't got time for bullsh*t. We getting money man. We go to the studio that's money, that's like $20 million. When I hit your town they pay 250 just to say they saw us...We been through the wars, I got scars from wars. Get with that anytime, but lets get with this money sh*t, that's what's up...Me and my son are rich for real, that's why I won't entertain bullsh*t...Today, I'm the only n*gga in the industry, me, my son and my brother that own everything, nobody owns nothin'. We 100 percent in this b*tch, we make more than they make." (SmackTube)
