Maybach Music Group’s Gunplay recently updated fans on his feelings toward rap rival 50 Cent and revealed his admiration for the G-Unit leader.
Despite previously going at 50 in interviews and songs, Gunplay said he has moved beyond their feud.
“I took off on 50 Cent because of years of built up tension because of my partner [Rick Ross]. I don’t know 50 Cent. I actually respect him. He’s just like me. [There] ain’t no problems. Everything is squashed. I got it out of my system.” (AHH)
Last year, Gunplay released his “Hot Boy” remix and took aim at 50 with a jab.
“N*gga got the hunters and they’re coming for your neck, GP raps. “B*tch I’m about a hundred, what the f*ck is 50 Cent?” (“Hot N*gga” Remix)
Coincidentally, Gunplay revealed he did not focus on entertaining a feud with 50 a year prior.
“Nah man,” Gun said when asked if he still has issues with 50 Cent. “I don’t know, we gotta see what happens [if we meet]. At the end of the day, I’m a man first. You know what I’m saying? And I’m not going to be tried by nobody. I don’t care how much money you got, how many people you killed, you know what I mean, we on the same page. … I’m not looking for no trouble, I’m good. I haven’t frowned, I haven’t raised my voice in a minute. I’ve been smiling, moving forward. I’m here.” (“The Breakfast Club”)
In December 2012, the MMG member expressed little interest in 50 when asked about the rapper’s publicized beef with French Montana.
“Listen, I don’t give a flying f*ck about them n*ggas, man. I don’t care if they fight each other, I don’t care. You understand what I’m saying,” Gunplay said in an interview referring to Fif and French. “I don’t even see ’em, they’re nothing to me, nobody is really, I don’t see nobody. I see right through all these c*nts, there’s nothing. I don’t care what this c*nt was talking to this c*nt about, they can sit there and have a c*nt-versation all day, I don’t care. That’s they a**. I f*cks with French, that’s my homie, but where he eats, I don’t sh*t.” (Global Grind)
