G-Unit head 50 Cent reportedly wanted Foxy Brown to join his clique so bad in the mid-2000’s that he offered to pay the Brooklyn rapper triple what she received for inking a deal at Def Jam.
According to Foxy, Fif wanted her to become a part of the Unit family and even questioned her attachment to one-time Def Jam president Jay-Z.
“50 said to me when Jay became president and I went back to Def Jam, ‘I will triple Jay’s offer to you if you come with me. What’s your allegiance to this dude?’ This is who I come from. It’s in my DNA.” (“The Combat Jack Show”)
Coincidentally, Curtis Jackson playfully went at Foxy’s head back in 2009 with a “Pimpin’ Curly” sketch.
“Motherf*ckers are out there talking about me behind my back, man,” 50 said in the clip. “He said the motherf*cker down South calling me Curly. Can you believe this sh*t after all I did for these motherf*ckers…Officer motherf*cking Ricky, when I catch you, I’mma cut you n*gga…motherf*cking b*tch Foxy Brown gonna tell me I got 24 hours to retract the statement, that h*e done lost her motherf*ckin’ mind. She don’t know that this is pimpin’ pimpin’.” (This Is 50)
The rapper’s comments followed an alleged statement from Foxy’s camp about him needing to retract comments he made on a song called “Try Me.”
In a statement to AllHipHop.com, Brown’s representative stated, “Foxy is giving that n***a 24 hour [period] to retract that statement or she’s going handle [him] Brooklyn Style.” (All Hip Hop)
Last month, fellow Brooklyn rapper Fabolous revealed why he turned down an offer to join Fif’s G-Unit team in the mid-2000’s.
“People always asked me why I didn’t join a crew or stuff like that, I don’t know if that would have changed my legacy or if I would even still be here today,” Fab said when asked if there is anything he would have done differently with his rap career. “I remember at one time 50 was offering me different things to come and be a part of G-Unit and I didn’t really do it because I didn’t want to kind of, it was at the time where they were signing Mobb Deep, Ma$e and all of those kind of guys and I just didn’t know if I wanted to be under something. I’ve always kind of had my own lane and everybody just respected me for what I do so that would have been a different turn and probably could have been successful, but successful for how long, you always got to think about it too.” (“The Breakfast Club”)
