(AllHipHop News) The competition between Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and Shawn “Jay Z” Carter goes all the way back to 50’s comedic jabs on “How To Rob” and Jay’s response on “It’s Hot.” Curtis addressed another point in the competitive history of the two New Yorkers during an interview with Revolt.

According to 50, his G-Unit Reebok sneakers outsold Jay Z’s S. Carter line by a large margin. The “Pilot” performer also claims that period created a nice windfall in profits for him as well.
“Some of the deals look alike, because you see more than one person doing a deal that seems similar, but the structure of the actual deal is more profitable for one guy than it is for the other guy,” said 50. “In reality, the G-Unit shoe outsold the Shawn Carter shoe 6 to 1. I made over $80 million during the RBK time period.”
50 goes on to borrow a line Jay made famous.
“If I’m lying. I’m flying,” said 50. “You know how they say ‘men lie, women lie, numbers don’t.'”
