Here we go again.
When one beef ends, another beef begins for 50 Cent. Name a rapper, and 50 has probably said a few choice words about him, or her, for that matter.
From Ja Rule and Fat Joe to Rick Ross, 50 Cent has attempted to single-handedly destroy rap careers one by one, and his latest victim is French Montana.
In an interview with Complex, French Montana revealed where he thought 50 went wrong in his rap career, stating:
“Yeah. You can’t beef with people because it’ll scare money away. In the streets you can strong arm people and take money but you can’t do that in the industry.”
The interview continues, as follows:
Right, because in the streets beef is way to expand your territory. Before, like with 50 Cent, beef used to be good for business. But now, beef is bad for business.
That’s why I stay away from it.
Is that why you’re one the few rappers that’s cool with all the big crews?
I used to be enemies with everybody, now I’m just cool with everybody. You have to learn you get more money like that.
Is that why you avoid some of the situations? I look at someone like Pusha saying Lil Wayne’s Dedication 4isn’t that good. Whereas you, you have Wayne on your songs but you rolled with Kanye before and then you also hang out with Rick Ross. It seems like avoiding beef has been a conscious decision.
Yeah, you have to. I feel like you have to expand. But when you beef, you put negative energy out there and it brings negative energy back. When you put something positive out there, it brings positive energy back. I feel like if you want to beef go to the streets, beef with niggas that really wanna beef. If you have nothing to live for. Beef is not about money.
[With rap] it’s like, you ain’t going to see them people you beefing with. You lying. You got security, you’re never at the same events. It’s like you beefing in a smart way if you’re trying to come up. Then it’s like a competition, you know like a battle rap. But if you want to battle rap you might as well call Fight Club, get to battle rapping. Don’t act like you want problems.
You should avoid beef if you trying to make money. People get scared when you try to beef with people. In general, [even in street shit] nobody want to stand next to you if somebody about to shoot you, unless you have a a big lick [Ed. Note—A “lick” means a hustle.] They [used to] do that with 50 because 50 was the bank. They knew he was going to win. People ain’t doing that [anymore].
We’ve definitely read worse, but it seems like 50 Cent didn’t take French’s opinion too well. 50 Cent hopped on Twitter and fired shots at the “Pop That” rapper.
French Montana hasn’t responded to 50’s tirade, but we’re sure words will eventually be exchanged.
Do you think French’s comments were bad enough for 50 to fire shots? Or is 50 Cent overreacting?
