50 Cent Insults Kanye West –"Yeezus Is Not Hip Hop"
Is the G-Unit rapper turning a friendly competition into a serious feud?
50 Cent and Kanye West's rivalry was pretty friendly for years — dating back to Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2007, when they released their albums (Late Registration and Curtis, respectively) on the same day. They betted each other who's album could be number one. Kanye won the friendly competition — placing 50's album at number two.
Now, 50 is insulting Kanye's recent music work telling everyone, he's not a fan.
"He's obviously a talent within our culture and is one of the driving forces of it, but some of that sh*t is weird to me," 50 said. "It sounds scrambled… radio is going to play dance music, EDM – you got a lot of stuff happening in music culture that’s influencing a lot of R&B music to that tempo. It doesn't feel like hip-hop to me, it feels like a fusion of something else, like a weird combination of dance music sounds and stuff," he added.
Before we hail stones on 50, let's remember Drake also slammed the album in an interview with Rolling Stone in February saying, "There were some real questionable bars on there. Like that 'Swaghili' line? C"Kanye's the reason why I'm here. I love everything about that guy." He also later blasted the mag for posting his comments and made peace with Kanye.
So unless Kanye gets upset with 50's remarks, there maybe no feud at all or do you guys think 50 Cent went out of line?
By the way, 50's next album, "Animal Ambition,"will be out on June 2.
