Its not just about been a rapper but it much about being what is said.Here comes respect,Doing the act.Proving to be a gangster,50Cent stepped up to this occasion in crush hour show off,publicly with threat of gunpoint on any face on T.V,cover papers,Magazine,Music Videos and all possible media outlet to think of.
In early 2005, a feud between The Game and G-Unit began. Even before The Game’s first album,The Documentary was released and their feud became public, there was tension between The Game and 50 Cent Soon after The documentary was released, 50 Cent felt that the rapper was disloyal for saying he did not want to participate in G-Unit’s feud with other rappers, and even wanting to work with artists with whom G-Unit were feuding, such as Nas and Jadakiss.With transparency of x-rayed review,The Beg for Mercy album production that excluded the presence of The Game,created a feeling of not been among the crew at their first big break of publicity that birthed the success of the “Beg for Mercy” album, that made fame out of the crew outside is own recogntion.In other not to have the sence of paralyses in the scene,he revolted with 50Cent.
50 Cent also claimed that he was not getting his proper credit for the creation of the album. He also claimed that he wrote five of the songs, but The Game denied that. During that dispute, The Game confronted 50 Cent at the Hot 97studio in New York City and members of The Game’s entourage began shooting at 50 Cent and other members of the G-unit entourage, causing them to flee the building and causing Hot 97 radio security to shoot a member of The Game’s entourage.After the situation between them escalated, 50 Cent and The Game held a press conference to announce their reconciliation.Fans had mixed feelings as to whether the rappers created a publicity stunt to boost the sales of the two albums the pair had just released.Nevertheless, even after the situation had apparently deflated,G-Unit continued to feud with The Game who responded during a performance at Summer Jam and launched a boycott of G-Unit called “G-Unot”.The phrase G Unot is a pun on the group’s name, and a pejorative term to refer to the group, short for “G (Gangster) You Not”. 50 Cent has since registered the G Unot trademark for himself which has in turn prevented The Game from using it anymore.
After the performance at Summer Jam, The Game responded with “300 Bars and Runnin'”, an extended track aimed at G-Unit as well as members of Roca-fella on the mixtapeYou know what it is Vol.3. 50 Cent responded through his “Piggy Bank” music video, which features The Game as a Mr Potatoes Head doll and also parodies other rivals.Since then both groups continued to attack each other. The Game released two more mixtapes, Ghost Unit and a mixtape/DVD called Stop snitching –stop lying.
50 Cent’s rebuttal was “Not Rich, Still Lyin'” where he mocks The Game. In addition, G-Unit started to respond on numerous mixtapes and new G-Unit Records artist Spider Loc began insulting The Game in various songs. The Game responded with “240 Bars (Spider Joke)”a song mainly aimed at Spider Loc, but also addressing Tony Yayo and rap group M.O.P and on the song “The Funeral 100 Bars”.
The feud seemed to have gained steam after Tony Yayo allegedly slapped the fourteen-year-old son of Czer Entertainment CEO, Jimmy Rosemond. The Game responded with “Body Bag” on his mixtape, You Know What It Is Vol.4. G-Unit have released a song named “We on Some Shit ” which is aimed at Czar Entertainment as well as Camron and Fat Joe In June 2010 Game expressed that he would not object to a G-Unit reunion. After the G-Unit reunion idea circulated around the internet a Facebook group was launched to help encourage the G-Unit comeback. In late 2016 the two ended their long standing feud.
The Rap game dropped clash between 50 Cent and Fat Joe.
G-Unit on the set of the Riders pt2 video,became a diss track aimed at Fat Joe
50 Cent pointed out that Fat Joe painted a target on himself for partnering up with Jarule on the song “New York” 50 Cent recorded the track “Piggy Bank” in which he attacked Fat Joe. Fat Joe responded with a track entitled “My Fofo” and although he said that he would not respond in songs after this, he made one more track, “Victim” which 50 Cent is purportedly the subject of, as well as a guest appearance on Rick Ross’ Mafia Music remix. 50 Cent and Tony Yayo took more shots at him on “I Run NY”.
Even though things seems to died down, at the 2005 MTV Video Music Award Fat Joe mentioned that all of the police presence in the venue was “courtesy of G-Unit” which related to his lyrical accusations that 50 Cent was a “snitch”50 Cent and Tony Yayo retaliated on set later in the show at the end of their performance by shouting obscenities towards Fat Joe and Terror Squad which were censored by MTV.Tony Yayo claimed Fat Joe ran from them at the VMAs.
In an interview,questions pop up to Fat Joe on Issues between him and 50Cent, Fat Joe said he will no longer be responding and that he has left it to his close friend Pistol Pete and his crew Kill all Rats to handle. Pistol Pete appeared on The Game’s “Stop snitching,Stop lyin” DVD and disrespected Tony Yayo, Chris Lighty (owner of Violator Records who had ties with 50 Cent, and James Cruz (50 Cent’s manager) and claims he chased Tony Yayo near a jewelery store. Lloyd Banks, Spider Loc, and Young Buck have also been insulted by Fat Joe.
In 2007, the interview continued on the feud and by affiliates from both parties.In 2008, the beef boiled over when 50 Cent released a mixtape entitled Elephant In the Sand, which is a mock title of Fat Joe’s album The Elephant in the room. The front and back covers contain photos of Fat Joe on a beach.In response Fat Joe and his group K.A.R. released a mixtape titled Gay-Unit hosted by Fat Joe himself.
The feud between 50 Cent and Fat Joe ended in 2012 when 50 Cent approached Fat Joe’s trailer at the BET AWARD, where he was confronted by Fat Joe’s entourage. He told them he wanted to make peace out of respect for Chris Lighty. However, Fat Joe was unsure of his intentions until later that day when they shook hands, while appearing on stage together amongst other past and present Violator artists at the BET Awards segment that paid tribute to the label’s founder Chris Lighty who died that year.
In 2014 Fat Joe gave a track titled Free to DJ Kay Slay, to use as he was working on his final album and told him he can do whatever he wants with it. In light of the 2012 BET Awards Kay Slay decided to get 50 Cent to do a verse for it and put it on his mixtape The Rise Of A City. Although Fat Joe was unaware, Kay Slay was putting 50 Cent on his track he approved stating unity is good for hip-hop. That same year, Tony Yayo shouted out Fat Joe, saying that there was “no beef”.
A feud between 50 Cent and Cam’ron began when 50 Cent was on Hot 97 giving an interview and Cam’ron called in. Cam’ron asked 50 Cent whether he had the power to stop records from being released on Koch Records and 50 Cent said that he does in some respects. As the conversation escalated into an argument, 50 Cent called Koch Records the “industry graveyard”.Cam’ron pointed out that Jim Jones’ newest album sold just as much as Lloyd Banks album did, despite the fact that Dipset is on an independent label while G-Unit is on a major label. 50 Cent took offense to this and said that Lloyd Banks has more money than Lil Wayne and Jim Jones, which makes record sales irrelevant. Cam’ron became upset and rebutted 50 Cent’s statements. Most notably, he brought up the poor record sales of the Mobb Deep album,Blood Money. Eventually the debate became so heated that the radio station was forced to end the call.
On February 9, 2007, the video of 50 Cent’s “Funeral Music” premiered on DJ Kay Slay’s Myspace. The video attacked the leader of Dipset. This is not seen as an attack on other members of Dipset, as 50 Cent says “From now on, Jimmy’s the boss of Dipset. And Juelz is the Capo. Cam is demoted to soldier. We like Jimmy better anyway”. At the end of the video, there is a poster showing a fictional drawing of Cam’ron with a gun saying “50 Cent” on the burial, along with his date of death; being February 8 when the video was released. Cam’ron responded with a track called “Curtis”, titled after 50 Cent’s first name, Where he claims he enjoys 50 Cent’s shoutouts to Dipset members Juelz Santana and Jim Jones, then goes on to discuss Santana’s and Jim Jones’ sales on their recent albums. 50 Cent and Young Buck made the song “Hold On” together with a video in which 50 Cent takes shots at Cam’ron. Cam’ron responded with “Curtis Pt.2”, which he shot a video for. G Unit and The Diplomats ended their feud in 2016.
Before signing with Interscope records 50 Cent had been in disputes with rapper JaRule and his label Murder Inc Record. 50 Cent claimed that the feud began in 1999 after JaRule spotted him with a man who took his chain.However, JaRule claimed the conflict stemmed from a video shoot in Queens because 50 Cent did not like JaRule “getting so much love” from the neighborhood. A confrontation occurred in a New York studio where rapper Black Child, a Murder Inc. artist, stabbed 50 Cent, which resulted in him having three stitches.
Since the stabbing, Black Child has made a diss towards 50 Cent, called “You the Wanksta”. In the song, Black Child talks about shooting 50 Cent, stabbing him, and other things, “I got a lot of living to do before I die, and I ain’t got time to waste, shoot this nigga in his face. How you call your self ferrari you dont ride like me in da hood every day ready to die like me.”
Cadillac Tah can also be heard dissing 50 Cent, on “Snitch in Da Club”.
The exchange of insult tracks released from both parties culminated into JaRule releasing ‘Blood in my eye’which was an album that mostly insulted 50 Cent. JaRule eventually tried to squash the feud with 50 Cent by using minister Louis Farrakhan in a televised interview. However, the attempt at peace lost credibility as the interview was scheduled a day before Blood in My Eye was released. As a result, most fans, along with 50 Cent, dismissed the interview as a blatant publicity stunt. Because of the ongoing feud between the two, 50 Cent’s label mates Eminem, Dr Dre, Obie Trice,D12 and Busta Rhyms have also become involved and have also released tracks which insult JaRule.
JaRule later released R.U.L.E with the successful single, “New York”, featuring Jadakiss and Fat Joe in which JaRule took subliminal shots at 50 Cent. This single prompted 50 Cent to enter a feud with the two featured artists (see article on “Piggy Bank” for details).
Although it seemed that the feud was over, JaRule returned with a track entitled “21 Gunz”. In response, Lloyd Banks and 50 Cent released the track “Return of Ja Fool” on Lloyd Banks’ mixtape Mo Money in the Bank Pt. 4, Gang Green Season Starts Now.
In an interview with MTV,JaRule has stated that his new album, The Mirror, will not be continuing any past feuds that he has engaged in. He said:
There was a lot of things I wanted to say, and I didn’t want there to be any bitter records on the album. Because I’m not bitter about anything that happened in the past few years.
