50 Cent has showed no signs of wanting to patch his issues with Rick Ross and has predicted the rapper's group, Triple C's, will fail to sell a substantial amount of albums next week when Custom Cars & Cycles drops.
In addition to Ross, Fif also taunted Fat Joe's rap career.
"I knew Fat Joe's pride would bring him out first, even if he wasn't in the position to win," 50 explained in an interview. "And he would go and go and go because he has the tough-guy aura. He's tougher in his head than he is in reality, as far as his Don Cartagena sh*t is concerned. It feels great because everybody's paying attention to them and talking on the radio about them. Mind you, while they're going out and doing all of this talking, I'm just chilling. I'll send them out like they're a rap fan so they can market me...Triple Cs is next. And then Rick Ross is going to follow that failure. Def Jam dumped a whole lot of marketing dollars into trying combat me with Rick Ross. More money than they should have. What his numbers were versus what Jadakiss did, didn't make financial sense. So the next go-around, they're going to give him his fair share instead that extra piece of pie. Then you're going to see where he really is." (Complex)
According to the tracklisting, the upcoming project will feature 15 cuts.
Custom Cars & Cycles: 1. Custom Cars & Clips 2. White Sand 3. Break It Down featuring Bun B 4. Go featuring Birdman 5. We Getting It 6. Trickn Off featuring Gucci Mane 7. Throw It In The Sky 8.

Diamonds & Maybachs Part 2 featuring Suede Royale 14. Hustla featuring Masspike Miles 15. Yams Part 2 featuring Yo Gotti (Press Release)
Ross recently spoke about what rap heads could expect to hear from the group's debut album.
"We feed the street that corner energy, that corner vibe. It's real big. We doing what we doing," Ross. The foursome release their debut group album, Custom Cars & Cycles, on October 27 with production from newcomers such as the Olympics and Transformers. The Game, Young Jeezy, Gucci Mane and Mack 10 also appear on the record. "Gunplay [is] unorthodox energy. He's uncut. He'll jump off that roof. Torch is much more laid-back. He's much more technical with his flows. Breed is the projects, that's the gutter. He just wanna have on a pair of $150 shoes and show his teeth and bounce around and do it for the Dunk Ryders and the D-boys." (MTV)
Fat Joe thanked 50 for promoting his new album, J.O.S.E. Part II earlier this month.
"I've realized something really, that, [50 Cent is] my number one fan and really loves Fat Joe," Joey told radio personality Angie Martinez. "I'm really tuned in to that, I really came to that realization that he's my number one fan because I'm a little upset at the label, I felt we could have did way more promotions, but if you didn't know Fat Joe's album was coming out today, I think he said, 'Yo, my man Joe needs this little bit of promotion man, like he's so much of a formidable opponent, that you know, I gotta keep this guy around, I gotta go promote his new album.' Absolutely. Promotions. Nah, thank-you 50, man, major promotions, you really bigged me up. Nobody was thinking about me before that, thank-you, I love you. J.O.S.E. II in stores right now." (Hot 97)
