New York rapper 50 Cent is getting on his workout grind and it’s largely because of his former rap foe. Curtis Jackson went to social media to credit Fat Joe for inspiring his gym goals.

Fif went to Instagram Friday with a salute to Joey Crack for shaking the weight and looking slim in 2019.

In 2013, 50 said clashing with Fat Joe went on for way too long.

“Fat Joe, that was interesting. The competitive nature of hip-hop forces us to compete,” 50 told MTV News correspondent Josh Horowitz when he walked the red carpet for the premiere of Will and Jaden Smith’s new sci-fi flick “After Earth” on Wednesday. “It was one of those things that it went on longer than it was supposed to with that one.” (MTV)

In December 2012, Fif said his late pal and business partner Chris Lighty could not stand seeing them go at each other’s necks.

“Chris [Lighty] wanted that [beef] to go away for a long time because he had a relationship with Joe,” says 50, who Lighty managed until his death. “Joe never did anything to me. I never actually physically did anything to Joe. It’s really hip-hop — this music and people being competitive — and over time, you forget what the actual source of the situation is.” (Billboard)

Weeks prior, 50 credited Joe’s loyalty to their late friend for helping end the dispute.

“Chris would always talk to me like, ‘Why don’t y’all sit down or try to let that go?’ … I’d tell him, ‘Get outta here,’ all the time. When he passed, Joe showed him a lot of respect. He ain’t have to. I worked the closest with him, it changed my perspective on it. And then you gotta look back at what exactly’s the reason, what caused it. He’s got a lot more pride than most hip-hop artists. It was just the way he was raised. He was being loyal because someone had did something for him, being loyal to that, that’s what created that energy [between us coming together].” (Boos-A-P)
