SOHH Whatcha Think: 50 Took A Shot At Lil Wayne: Is The Young Money Boss Built For War? [Click Here & Speak]

50 Cent is like's rap super villian: He just isn't as interesting without someone to wage war against. Whether it's Ja Rule or Kanye West, Fif's beefs (real or orchestrated) always ensure his name will remain in the news when his latest music isn't enough.

Fiddy's latest attack came in the form of a few bars directed at Young Money head figure Lil' Wayne. While Fif didn't exactly call Tunechi out by name, his references to flesh-tight pants and skateboarding made it pretty obvious who the warning shots were directed towards in the song "Love, Hate, Love."
The track starts off slow with a stirring soul vocal sample serving as the backdrop. When the track gets going, 50 sounds sinister after he lyrically launches a salvo in the direction of Young Money captain Lil Wayne. "Acting like a white boy bored, now you wanna jump a flight of stairs on a skateboard/Ni---, why the f--- ya pants so tight?/You trying to show ni---- your ass, your alternative life" - Ouch, 50! But Wayne wasn't the only rapper to catch a stray from Mr. Jackson as former ally Gamecatches some pretty tough shots too. "I touched more p---- than maxipads/Now Detox can be your little rap rehab/Bi---, just a second visit from the repo man/And you can't afford your monthlys, I mean God D---." (RapFix)
Pretty funny stuff. Even funnier when you consider the fact that Weezy took a shot at Jay-Z earlier this year after Hov dropped a subliminal toward Wayne and Birdman on the song H.A.M. No one was surprised that Jigga ignored Wayne's attack; in fact, Wayne likely knew no response would ever be issued. But this 50 Cent situation is different, if for no other reason than the fact that Curtis is the kind of guy who thrives off of beef. Which means if Wayne decides to shoot back, things could get ugly. It'll be interesting to see what Tunechi's next move will be.
