Dipset's Jim Jones recently weighed in on the current dispute between 50 Cent and Jay-Z by giving the G-Unit leader some rap beef advice.
Jones believes Fif would have a better shot at getting a response from Hov by directly confronting him.
"Yeah, and he shouted me out on the beginning of The Blueprint 3, right? That was hot. How many albums he sold? I got a shout out, a million sold records, n*gga!," Jones said in an interview. "[laughs]. And you know I'm about to chop and screw that sh*t and make a hook out of it...Jay's a smart dude too, man. Sometimes I guess you respond to certain things that keep your a** in the game. We d*mn sure definitely playing in the same ball game when it come to that. But if I was 50--they got some money over there. If I was 50, I'd run down and snuff the sh*t out of him. That's what I would do. I would go get some fly-a** security, back his security down on some football sh*t, and just run down on him, snuff the sh*t out him. But I ain't got a hundred million and sh*t like that. So we couldn't pull that stunt. Now that's publicity." (Complex)
G-Unit associate 40 Glocc recently discussed his loyalty to 50 Cent in the midst of the Jay-Z and Beanie Sigel beef.
"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)
