Rapper 50 Cent addressed recent comments made by rapper Jay-Z during a radio interview on the BBC last week.
Jay-Z defended rapper Kanye West in an interview conducted by DJ Trevor Nelsons BBC radio show last week.
Jay-Z became irritated when Nelson suggested that West would not have stormed the stage at the 2009 VMAs, had 50 Cent been an accepting an award instead of country singer Taylor Swift.
It wasn’t 50 Cent [who made the comments], 50 told Angie Martinez. Hip-Hop has cool punk and Jay is the coolest punk in Hip-Hop. Hes big. And his take on it is [hes] bigger than the art form and he wont actually and compete. Battling has been a part of the culture.
I think he would have done that if that was 50 Cent,” Jay-Z also told Nelson. “No one is scared of 50 Cent. I want everyone to be clear. No one is scared of 50 Cent.”
Although 50 Cent went on to say that he did not have any problems with Jay-Z, he firmly stated that no one would storm his stage if put in the same situation.
When he [Jay-Z] has to say no one is scared of 50 Cent, its because the public is responding to his punk presentation, 50 Cent said. Kanye wouldnt take the trophy from me and neither would Jay-Z.
The rapper took numerous shots at Kanye West during the interview, implying that Chicago emcee could be homosexual, due to his association with Lady GaGas upcoming Fame Kills Tours.
50 also revealed that Shady Records boss Eminem is not happy with the track Forever, which features Drake, Kanye West and Lil Wayne.
I dont think Em knew everyone was going to be on the record, 50 Cent said. Initially I think he just did a verse with it. He mixed his records and then they remixed it. I dont think hes happy with that at all.
50 Cent is currently preparing for his upcoming Thisis50 Festival, which takes place October 3 at The Beach on Governors Island.
The rapper said he will debut new music from his upcoming album Before I Self Destruct during the festival this weekend.
