G-Unit leader 50 Cent has pulled a stunt on deported rapper Shyne by disguising himself as a music industry executive and calling into the rapper’s Def Jam live conference call today.
Although initially trying to find out what Shyne’s problems with him were, Fif continued to frustrate the rapper with taunts.
“I’d like to speak with Shyne,” Fif said while recording the session from an office desk. “My name is Sean, I’m right out on Radio One. I called right after Tim Westwood. I’d like to speak with Shyne. Yeah my question, is this Shyne? What’s up, man. Everything’s good. I was just wondering what is your real issue with 50? … The 50 sh*t with Shyne, I think that sh*t is a hoax! I think it’s the way you try to gain attention in some ways because the n*gga ain’t been f*cking with you for 15 years. You’ve been gone for 10 years so you couldn’t have had no issues. Shut up n*gga! Shut up n*gga! Shut up, you’re on a f*cking island! You can’t go to war from a f*cking island! Shut the f*ck up! Shut up! F*ck Shyne! F*ck Def Jam! F*ck everybody! I don’t care you went to jail! I hope you got raped by a pack of n*ggas!” (This Is 50)
Fighting through 50’s remarks, Shyne unknowingly tried to answer his questions.
“I mean, it ain’t no issue,” Shyne replied not knowing 50 was disguising himself. “He had sh*t to say in the street while I was in the pen.” Following Shyne’s muffled response, 50’s connection was temporarily cut off and followed by a message informing him he would be muted during the call’s continuation.

Earlier this year, Shyne dropped multiple anti-50 diss records including “There Will Be Blood.”
“The champ is here and not a minute too quickly, like Mike, I’m back to the city to drop 50,” Shyne raps. “Upon my return, I empty the cartridge, got fat while I was gone, now I’ma send you where God is/Ah-hem, let me clear my throat — when you talk to the Feds, spell my name with a ‘y’/I hate rats and chumps, you guys ain’t gorillas, you’re f*cking chipmunks/F-Y-I, I’m the king of the jungle…” (“There Will Be Blood”)
50 later responded and said Shyne was not worthy of being on his radar.
“You gotta come with something. For you to even be on that radar, like Shyne when he has something to say. I’m not responding to that because it’s not good enough. The material is not even good enough for me — I would jump out there just because I felt like I was being a part of hip-hop culture, competing but if you look at it and say who’s really in a position to say something, I shouldn’t even be listening to him.” (YouTube)
