G-Unit leader 50 Cent has addressed recent subliminal disses made by Diddy and shared his feelings on how he views the Bad Boy Records CEO.
From Fif’s perspective, Diddy has not yet tempted him to start a rap feud.
“Diddy, well, the thing about it is, Puffy’s like a b*tch,” 50 said when asked if Diddy was subliminally dissing him. “To describe Puffy in one word is a ‘b*tch.’ Right? Puffy wants to be the hot b*tch in the group. You know how you see a hot b*tch — I know it sounds kinda harsh but I’ll explain my statement. You know how an ugly b*tch always has pretty friends? That’s how he’s built his group. He wants to be the hot b*tch in the group. He wants to make sure he gets all the attention. He wants to make sure the n*ggas wanna holla at him. And you know, it’s the reality of the situation, man. He’ll tell you what happened himself down in Miami. It’s not even open season on Diddy, I don’t know who he was talking about, he didn’t say my name. But that’s the way I feel about him…This is the final notice, the final note because they’ll suck the life outta him like everybody else he’s been around…On the up and up, the n*gga Puff used to call, we used to kick it on the telephone sh*t after the Mase sh*t.” (“G-Unit Radio”)
Speculation of whether or not Diddy was subliminally dissing 50 Cent developed during a post BET Awards 10 broadcast in late June.
“I love my people, eh yo let’s stop the hate man,” Puff said during the BET Awards 10 afterparty. “Congratulate. Hate is for suckers and if you hating, you’re a sucker and you’re ashy and your breath stinks. And you know who I’m talking to you hatin’ a** crab.” (BET Awards 10 Afterparty)
Writing via Twitter, Puff later shared his thoughts on rap beefs.
“That’s how it is, my sh#t is laid out/F@ck that beef sh&t, that sh*t is played out” The Notorious B.I.G. feat. @iamdiddy … Still so true,” Diddy wrote Monday (June 28).
“There’s nothing in the universe like the POWER OF LOVE! www.diddyblog.com Join the evolution and the solution! Rt to someone you love!!!” (Diddy’s Blog)
Recently, 50 said Diddy is not an authentic emcee because he uses ghostwriters.
“You know what’s interesting, he’s not an artist,” 50 said in an interview with Nancy B. “An artist would be somebody that actually wrote something, maybe on the record or because we have R&B artists that don’t actually write music, maybe it’s unfair because of the pressures people put on me. Imagine if I just sat around and listened to people’s CDs and say I’m just gonna say the first verse I hear that sounds good. That would completely take away the pressure and I would still be the artist in front of you with a new song every two minutes because every artist that has a song that would like to make some money off it would send it. It doesn’t make you special. When you actually do what I thought was a part of hip-hop and made the culture exciting to me, which was each person’s original experience and how you learn to enjoy them as an individual and their portion of their life. So when that’s not there because they’re being an executive, saying you don’t write rhymes you write checks, that’s not hot. For hip-hop, that’s not hot. Maybe for another genre it’ll work, R&B or something else because they’re made, these people are all made and when companies decide they’re gone, they’re gone. Immediately, because they couldn’t even figure out what to do without a team of people figuring it out for them.” (WZMX Hot)
