(AllHipHop Rumors) 50 Cent is one of Hip-Hop’s veteran figures. Over the course of his career, he hasn’t been one to bite his tongue.
The Jamaica Queens MC has gone to war with the likes of Ja Rule and Rick Ross. He also had battles with Fat Joe before rebuilding the bridge years later.
I say that to say if 50 Cent will let it be known if he doesn’t like you or something you’ve done. Right now it seems as if he’s letting his feelings towards another New York rapper be known.
The rapper in question would be Troy Ave. Troy Ave ruffled feathers after releasing his “2 Legit 2 Quit” music video.
The song features lyrics about the incident that landed both Troy Ave and Taxstone in jail. The incident also left others wounded and Troy’s friend and bodyguard deceased.
An animated Troy Ave can be seen pointing a middle finger to someone from the witness. The lyric can be interpreted in different ways, but many have interpreted as an indictment for snitching.
During his interview with The Breakfast Club, Troy Ave compared his tension with fellow New York rapper Casanova to 50 Cent’s beef with Rick Ross.
Troy actually said Casanova is pulling 50 Cent type ‘Pimping Curly’ moves” as he keeps working like Rick Ross.
Casanova enters the picture due to his friendship with Taxstone. Recently 50 Cent caught wind of the situation and decided to offer his opinion via Instagram.
“Middle finger from the stand,smh Cas on his Pimpin curly, you gonna just do like ROSS and keep working.,” said 50 Cent in the post.
The whole situation surrounding Troy Ave making his 50 Cent-Rick Ross comparisons is weird. After Troy Ave was shot in 2016, 50 Cent was one of the rappers who visited him at the hospital.
50 Cent and Troy Ave have also collaborated on music in the past. The true nature of this rift will reveal itself soon.
Meanwhile, Casanova and his label boss Memphis Bleek have chimed in and taken aim at Troy Ave too.
Do you think 50 Cent should have posted about Troy Ave on Instagram?
