Southern rapper Pitbull has weighed in on the recent publicity stunts of 50 Cent and Rick Ross' baby's mother Tia Kemp and compared their actions to those of professional wrestlers.
While explaining his respect for 50, Pitbull also touched on how the G-Unit leader is hurting hip-hop and why Tia is damaging her image more than Ross'.
"You know what's funny to me, I said this the other day, hip-hop is becoming almost like WWF, you know, where it's like people building these scenarios," Pit explained in an interview with Tim Westwood. "And I have a lot of respect for 50 Cent and the way he hustles -- but as far as these scenarios that they draw up, it hurts the game more than it helps the game. That's why I was very proud to hear a song from Jay-Z like 'A Star Is Born' where he's showing love to everybody that's worked hard to be in the position that they're in because no matter what anybody is in the entertainment business, you gotta work hard for where you're at...The only ones making any money at the end of the day is the execs...I hope that it always stays music...That's who [Ross] picked to be a baby mama. At the end of the day, she's not respecting herself. She's not really disrespecting Ross, I feel like you're disrespecting yourself more than anything." (Tim Westwood TV)
Tia linked with Ross' rivals 50 and Floyd Mayweather, Jr. last weekend and made the event public through her Twitter page.
" In Vegas with the kids and 50 chillin @ Mayweather's crib.........," she wrote on Saturday. "And yes I will be @ the fight later tonight...@ @mayweathermania crib with 50 and the kids......... Just met Diddy now, I'm loving life right now." (Tia Kemp's Twitter)
Tia previously spoke about her association with Fif in an interview earlier this year.
"G-Unit books. It's not a [coincidence]," Tia said regarding the company overseeing her tell-all release. "I'm affiliated with G-Unit now, officially. I am G-Unit. I'm waiting on my piece too, 50. [laugh] Yes I am [serious]...I'm a great mother, I'm hoping this book with be successful so that I can give my kids a good life, a better life than I had...[Ross] is not a real n*gga, he has no street credit at all. None whatsoever...I don't know where all of the [swag] came from, the fake shades. I think that's who he's trying to be now, Biggie. Did you see him in that new video? He put two earrings in his ear, do some research, he never put earrings in anything he did. He just got earrings about a month ago...[With the beard] he's trying to be Freeway Ricky Ross."

Fif also used Tia as the motivation behind his anti-Ross song "Tia Told Me."
"Shut the f*ck up/We don't wanna hear your 'Mafia' tough talk / Your f*ck boys don't fly up in New York / You wanna listen to [Fat] Joe, you wanna listen to [DJ] Khaled / Fine, I'll just f*ck everybody up while I'm at it / First 'We The Best' then it's 'We Depressed' / After the sh*t flopped, they like 'D*mn We Stressed' /We a mess, he's not the n*gga to test / 90 degrees out here and we gotta wear our vests / Call me crazy, go 'head call me crazy / Me and your baby mama gon get intimate maybe..." ("Tia Told Me")
