50 Cent has updated fans on his rap war with Rick Ross, anticipates Ross’ first-week sales and responds to the rapper’s alleged conversation with a G-Unit associate.
Speaking with radio personality Big Boy, Fif broke down his current stance on the Miami rapper.
“Artists misinterpret attention,” 50 explained. “They think it’s a positive thing to go after someone who has a bigger profile when they actually getting ready to release a record. But it doesn’t help unless your record is commanding that attention at the same time. I think people are paying more attention to me and Rick Ross feuding than his records and his sales will reflect that when it actually comes out and that’s when I really have a field day on his a**…I saw [Ross’ video] on YouTube, he made [the pay-off] up. I don’t think anybody interpreted that as true…How much more of a fool could you make yourself…You can’t take anything serious from him. It’s not me, it’s the blogger…This has been the easiest [battle].” (Big Boy’s Neighborhood)
Ross has reportedly strung together some big names for possible diss records going at 50 including Ja Rule for “Mafia Music” remix and Lil Wayne on “Valley of Death.”
“I got a lot of respect and a lot of love, not only for Lil Wayne, but for Cash Money Records,” Ross said in an interview. “Those were some of the few dudes that embraced me outside of the music long before the fame and fortune. I always felt it was genuine. Birdman and Slim been coming to Miami for years now…Anytime I called Wayne for anything, whether it’s an album cut or remix, he was just there for me. ‘Valley of Death,’ that concept was just, that’s really what it is…everyday I get up and live the life that I live.” (MTV)
Rule recently announced his alliance with Ross against the G-Unit leader.
“Yeah, it’s f*cking hilarious,” Rule said regarding 50 and Ross. “I’m sittin’ back getting a good laugh and sh*t. But yo, check me on that ‘Mafia Music’ remix. Holla back. Ross, you know how we do, n*gga.” (Street Heat)
Despite Fif’s promises of Ross’ career becoming more difficult as a result of their battle, the Miami emcee has claimed the opposite.
“We got a lot of money,” Ross said in a recent video. “I just bought four new whips. F*cking monkey said he was gonna ruin my life, haha! I’m waitin’ for it man. Life is actually better. Follow my time pieces man. Follow my whips. Chornicle my triumph. You n*ggas still can’t dress. Youse a monkey…You don’t get tired of wearing those ugly jeans? Those ugly shoes? You lost all that weight and your face sunk in with your fake teeth, it ain’t a good look…Y’all stay tuned, it gets deeper.” (World Star Hip Hop)
