50 Cent has shown no signs of stopping his taunts toward Diddy by publicly bashing the rap mogul in a radio interview this week.
Fif believes Puff should not be categorized as an artist and taunted the recent quality of music from him.
"His music sucks," 50 said in an interview. "It's bad. He's not an artist anyway, so it doesn't really matter. When you think about it, is he a rapper? Because he says he doesn't write rhymes, he writes checks. Like the same things that I would say are wrong with a Rick Ross project, it's not authenticity to what he's doing. Now he's a singer? I think that's Kanye West's part. Kanye's an artist, if he's making those artistic choices -- it's different. Puff is just buying a record and singing. Nobody's buying [Last Train to Paris.] He even said it himself that he doesn't expect it to sell, he doesn't care about the sales, he's just using it as a promotional tool and standing next to these fools is a promotional tool too. Why does Rick Ross remind him of Biggie? Any Biggie fan objects to that. So how can he say that?" (Jam N 94.5)
Earlier this week, 50 also called out Diddy's new records.
"It's the truth. It's bad, so he's gotta try and stay next to something else that has some momentum for him to be all right -- from a business perspective, it seems like a cool move but not a cool move for hip-hop." (Power 98)
In 2006, 50 dissed Puff on his G-Unit Radio Part 22 mixtape song called "Hip-Hop"
"Who shot Biggie Smalls/If we don't get them they're gonna kill us all/Man, Puffy know who hit that ni**a, man, that n***a saw him/He's scared 'dem boys from the West Side will break him off, jump on his a**,so he run to Harlem to shake 'em off." ("Hip-Hop")
They later mended their issues and collaborated on 50's 2007 "I Get Money" remix.
50 Cent and Sean "Diddy" Combs ended their feud Wednesday after mutual acquaintances of the two moguls persuaded them to end their beef, official sources said. Sources close to the negotiations told AllHipHop.com that the two spoke in person last night (Sept. 6 2006) about their verbal jabs at each other on upcoming albums and mixtapes. "We are definitely doing a 'cease fire,'" Chris Lighty, CEO of Violator Management, told AllHipHop.com. (All Hip Hop)
