G-Unit associate 40 Glocc recently discussed his loyalty to 50 Cent saying the successful rapper can always count on him to back him in a rap beef.
Glocc also shared his thoughts on the Unit leader linking with Beanie Sigel.
"50 [Cent] is family to me, I've slept in this dude's house, he's taken me all across the globe," 40 explained in an interview. "It ain't about money; 50 doesn't owe me sh*t. Our relationship is above that. If he needs me, I'm going to be on the front line. I'm behind him 100 percent whether it's Rap beefs or real beefs. I have nothing but respect for him. When 50 makes moves regardless if it's an asset or not, we're going to stand behind him and trust his judgment. I support everything he does. Beans is dope. I've known Beans for a while, and as far as I'm concerned he's already family. I feel Beans, and you know Fif is competitive. He'll give Jay-Z a run for his money." (Hip Hop DX)
50 recently spoke on what would happen if he were to engage in a rap battle with Jay.
"Well, it would be great," 50 explained in an interview. "It would be great for hip-hop. It would probably be interesting, but I don't think one of us will survive it. I don't have a relationship with Jay-Z. We're just both a part of hip-hop culture. We're not friends. We don't call each other to talk at leisure." (MTV)
The G-Unit leader has recently been dissing Jay's business dealings with former Roc-A-Fella artists like Beans and Freeway.
"I think he completely has his best interests in mind," 50 said about Hov. "When you commit to working with other artists -- I have to be passionate about it. Of course, you want to make money, so you only commit to the things that you're excited about, that you feel you have the chemistry with or has something there, but after you get past that point, it should be something that you actually want to see win. I tried to collaborate with him on the Freeway project. What I did was Freeway went out and found his publishing deal, and we started the album, and Jay did 'Big Spender' and I did 'Take You to the Top,' and when it came time to put the record out, he didn't want to shoot his video, so I'm like, 'Why am I going to shoot mine? I'm not shooting it. It's on your label.' He has a king complex, he thinks he's f*cking Jesus, you know what I mean? This J-Hova sh*t." (Rolling Stone)
Despite the tension, reports have suggested that Jay and 50 are going to collaborate together.
Despite 50 Cent calling Jay-Z Beyonce's husband and more recently jabbing that he thinks he's Jesus, rumor has it that the two may actually be working together behind the scenes. A source who recently found himself eavesdropping on a conversation at a certain New York Giant's office, recently told BET.com that Hov may be unifying the big apple by featuring Fif and Nas on the "Empire State of Mind" remix. Word is the entire recording as well as conversations between the NY juggernauts will be documented. In addition to continually jabbing Jay, Fif has had issues with Nas for a while. Former friends, the Queens MCs became at odds after Fif called Nas out on The Massacre's "Piggy Bank." Word has already been spreading that Nas, who was reportedly slated to appear on the original track, is on deck for the remix. (BET)
