There is no doubt that 50 Cent is one of the hottest artists of the last decade. Recently, i caught up with him to reflect on the best/worst moments of 2009.
We started on the best album, then we kinda got stuck on the 'beef' issue, specifically the Jay-z & Beans situation. I really wanted to get into this, but I ran out of time.
What do you think is the situation with Fif and Game the same as Beans and Jay-z?
I don't think it is. You would have heard about Game one way or another via Dre. 50's done so much damage to other artists, what he did to Ja Rule is actually historic. I dont think people are that concerned if someone attacks 50. Its his field, his speciality, its kinda what the people expect from him/comes with the package.
50 is like Genghis Khan when it comes to Beef, so when he got into it with Game, people were skeptical, some people still think it was all a publicity stunt.
Regardless, 50 is a unique artist. There wont be another story like his for a long time.
