Troy Ave: 50 Cent Calling Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks My Hypemen Was Wack


(AlHipHop News) Troy Ave is one of the hottest rappers coming out of NYC at the moment. The Brooklyn born rhyme spitter’s 2013 project New York City: The Album was received positively by critics and helped him land a spot on XXL’s 2014 Freshmen cover.

Troy’s debut album also created a lot comparisons to fellow New Yorker 50 Cent. The G-Unit leader admitted that he saw a lot of himself in Troy and wanted to see him succeed, but there was another comment made by 50 that Troy did not take as a compliment.

In an interview with Hot 97 in April, 50 referred to his former G-Unit partners Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks as Troy Ave’s “hypemen.” While he claimed the statement was not a “shot” at Yayo and Banks, some people did see it as disrespectful to essentially label the veteran rappers as a new artist’s sidekicks.

Apparently, Troy agrees. He responded to 50’s hypemen comment during an interview with the Breakfast Club.

“I think that was wack. That’s they personal issues. I don’t really be having an opinion on other people’s personal issues,” said Troy. “I think it was wack. I wouldn’t have said that about my people, but I don’t know what they got going on. Lloyd Banks is definitely in my new video, and I don’t feel like they were hypemen. I felt like they were doing what you were supposed to do.”

Troy goes on to add that no one would  have called established rappers from other regions hypemen for supporting young rappers out of their area. It was that lack of unity that he says was the problem with New York Hip Hop.

“They ain’t gonna call T.I. or Young Jeezy a hypeman if they get on whoever record coming up,” argues Troy. “That what’s wrong with New York Hip Hop, or what was wrong with it. That’s why I had to come through and restore the feeling.”

    “”that was wack. That’s they personal issues. I don’t really be having an opinion on other people’s personal issues,” said Troy. “I think it was wack””

    Wait,what?!?!?! So you have an opinion?!?!?!

  • Phatt Killah

    I don’t think this cat is nice like that though.

  • The_Good_Life

    Not defending 50 but his movement was organic. This dudes movement is forced. I’m not sure how successful he will be. Plus 50 got an album out and is looking for a springboard right now. Not shore this dude wants them problems. Ross went in cause he was ready.

    • Brooklyn Stoop

      troy ave movement is forced??? you mustve just got wind of who son is. he didnt just pop up outta no where

      • Obi Won

        It seems forced on a nationwide level. I’m assuming by your name “Brooklyn Stoop”, you’ve known about Troy Ave for some time. Which makes perfect sense. But NOBODY except me listen to Troy Ave, and I only listen to him bc i’m a hip hop fan, and he has that NY feel to it which has been missing. It does seem forced out of desperation for NY music, but it doesn’t need to be. I’ll take quality NY music over a quantity of “hits” or popular music any day.

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        i dont live in NY anymore, but the 1st time i heard of troy ave……….sheesh, it was a minute ago on BET he had a video, it might have been round the time i 1st heard maino or saw his videos. i cant think of the actual time frame………..but the reason why i dont think its forced is cause of what you said “NOBODY except me listen to Troy Ave”. thats how i feel, im the only one i know that have troy ave mixtape, and i like it for all the reason you do. ” It does seem forced out of desperation for NY music” i can understand that though cause thats how i felt when i 1st heard the album

      • Savimbi

        Speaking of Brooklyn rappers, whatever happened to this dude 38 Spesh, he had a crazy mixtape 2-3 years ago, i thought he was a perfect representation, reminded me of a NY version of Jeezy lol thought he would have blown up by now…

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        never heard of him.
        2-3 years ago………….i think i was off rap (any new artist) and was just listening to dancehall. needed a break

      • The_Good_Life

        U ethered yourself when u say you don’t live here anymore. Cam and 50 was nice back then. This dude is regular in his prime..

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        i ethered myself because i moved, lmao??? what are you 12?
        im 33, i know how nice cam and 50 was back in the day lol. the whole thing was you saying his movement is forced, this isnt dudes 1st mixtape or he popped on the scene out of no where like drake
        dude came out, had a song (cant remember the name) and a video for it on BET. thats the 1st i heard of troy ave and it was years ago……….. just like maino, he aint just hit the scene with hi hater. so if someone say maino movement is forced it sound weird cause dude was grinding for a minute b4 he blew (and b4 the topic change i am not a maino fan) and thats what im saying bout troy ave…….dude was grinding…….absent for a minute and really IMO this mixtape really put him in a position of power for his movement. but it being forced…..i just dont see that. thats all im saying

        i did find it funny you said this though
        “Not defending 50 but his movement was organic. This dudes movement is forced. I’m not sure how successful he will be. Plus 50 got an album out and is looking for a springboard right now.”

        50 movement was organic in the past is what your saying right? then said your not sure how successful troy ave will be right? then said plus 50 got an album out and is looking for a springboard………. so 50 is the one forcing his movement and using this up and comer as a spring board to re launch his (50) career, not the other way around

      • The_Good_Life

        Im From Flatbush. 50 made the NY post before he had a album out… Deny that!!!!!

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        “Im From Flatbush. 50 made the NY post before he had a album out… Deny that!!!!!”

        *clap clap* what that have to do with Troy Ave movement being “forced”?

  • Brooklyn Stoop

    Powder!

  • Savimbi

    Troy Ave’s logic is exactly what’s wrong with the black mentality, well young black male, he goes on his interviews calling certain rappers weirdos, such as Chance Tha Rapper (somebody who had a hand directly or indirectly in keeping relative peace in chicago this past memorial day weekend) K.dot (who spreads positivity through his music) hell every positive rapper/emcee is a weirdo to him and he runs around with a movement who’s slogan is “Powder to the people” smh am I the only one who sees something backwards in that? I actually loved the New York city album but he talks too much and wants to keep reminding us of how gangsta or street he is “i’m still with the violence” 50 didn’t have to do none of that, streets already knew what it was w/ 50, first time i heard of 50 was from one of my brooklyn homies who moved out here and his first words were ” you gotta hear about this 50 cat, he’s a real gangsta” lol that was 99-00 but i say that to say this guy seems too much of a small time if that drug dealer/street cat trying to embellish his past, i can see him getting knocked out and worldstarred in the near future before his career takes off.

    • Obi Won

      Basically, I never understood that. It seemed like son was hating for no reason, especially since he had his own movement.

      • Savimbi

        Exactly, just let the music speak for itself to me he’s the perfect example of ” the loudest person in the room is usually the weakest” lol they should never compare him to 50, fifty was going at actual real rappers/dudes who had street reputation, what stripes does he get for calling Chance a weirdo in his face? lol he picks on all the non-confrontational dudes. Migos, Young Thug, Keef etc why doesn’t he call them out? they’re just as popping and are a reason y NY is not shinning, but we know why tho lol you can tell he a weak dude…

      • Obi Won

        True, I only compare him to 50 in music: flow, hooks, etc…
        But 50 had a chip on his shoulder and was built for it. Not saying Troy isn’t built for it, but even though he calls KDOT and company weirdo rappers, I don’t got Kendrick being a sucker either. I’ve been waiting for Kendrick to subliminally address the weirdo talk somewhere or say “powder” lol in one of his rhymes. 50 was really angry towards the people in industry vs Troy who seems to just not like the music getting burn.

      • Savimbi

        I’m sure it’s coming, but Troy won’t be ready, he doesn’t even have that star quality, hell Papoose got more star quality than he has, my thing is, NYC the album was definitely one of the best projects to come out in 2013 BUT his not an above average MC lol Drake would wash him lyrically, Big Sean would wash him Lyrically, see he can’t even out rap any of those cats. I liked his music until i started watching his interviews, had me like dude you are nice and all but you def ain’t bringing NY back, not by a long shot, if anything I believe it will be Joey Badass because he has a fan base that’s growing with him and those kids they love him, everywhere, even in europe, he got time, he’s still developing musically and as a person…

      • Obi Won

        Yeah I felt the same, I was like Troy you do have an old school feel, but I think some people were pumping his head up. It was cool to have the Vets on his album, but he’s not as nice as he thinks. I wonder why he didn’t call Bad Azz a weirdo rapper. I like JB but I wasn’t feeling his last mixtape. I like his original flow, I wasn’t feeling that “onxy” aggressive flow he was experimenting with. But it going to be difficult of Joey, he has a 90’s feel and now a days its far from it. Beats, flow, lyrics, NY would have to push him far and the vets would have to push him, and would have to except the help minus his ego.

    • Montezuma1

      “Black mentality?” How bout immature mentality or ignorant mentality why paint it with such a broad brush? Speak for yourself.

      • Savimbi

        iiight let me rephrase, a lot of the black males, dudes especially, like why call Chance a weirdo when he’s all about being positive? i think that was real suckerish of him. prime example Lil Wayne i believe is one of the reasons Hip-hop is in the state it’s in, fast forward to now, you have Young Thug who’s one of the worst lol, and he’s said it in many interviews that LiL Wayne was the rapper who’s influenced him most and he’s 22, these cats are supposed to be leaders…most these kids hav nothing but rappers to look up to unfortunately

  • I watched this interview yesterday and as soona s he said that i was like aaahh shit. smfh he done fucked up! summer jam is going to be interesting.

  • Obi Won

    I agree with his NY unity statement, but maybe he cant see why they looked like hype men. If Juelz & Jimmy started rapping behind someone with the same vibe as Killa, they would look like his hypemen or imagine if Bleek was behind Kanye. So it makes perfect sense that Jeezy & TI wouldn’t look like hype men, bc they were never soldiers in a group with a leader. The fact that Banks and Yayo together were rapping with a “young 50” on HIS song, definitely made it look like they were hype men.

    • Eli Pinilla

      That’s exactly what happened with Jim and juelz. They looked like hype men behind 50 when the cam beef was goin. Same with Remy ma. That’s why 50 said what he said. Cuz he made other nggz look like his hype men before.

      • Obi Won

        Right I forgot he did that to Jim & Juelz. I couldn’t understand why they did that.

      • Eli Pinilla

        Cuz they rappers. Rappers don’t know no better

  • SmashBandicoot

    NY niggas are going through it right now lol

    • Montezuma1

      TI and Mayweather not from NY and who’s going through it more than those fools?

  • Montezuma1

    Troy is as crafty as 50. They have a lot in common. lol. If Yayo and Banks are indeed hype men it’s a testimony to 50’s failure to develop their careers. It’s just as bad a reflection on him as them. 50 is a self centered dude. No one can eat around him and he carries his staff and team like do-boys. He even carried Chris Lighty like that on the low. 50 puts people in situations where they have to choose. Take on his enemies and then he leaves them holding the bag. He hides behind his money but Yayo has none. Banks was always more talented than Fif but Fif had more of a story where Banks is just a gifted wordsmith with the personality of a rock. Ultimately it doesn’t even matter. I like Troy but he’ll never blow up flying the NY flag. The NY hate is too strong. People hate on NY artist because they’re programmed to do so. It’s the after effects of the Bad Boy/Deathrow era and the worship of Tupac. Hating NY just seems like the right thing to do for most.

    50 blew because of Eminem. Crossover overrides black crab in a barrel bullshit all day. Troy has no such option. He’ll be a celebrated NY artist. Whatever that means. 50 is a creep. He’s gonna keep doing stunts like that staged pitch to get press but everything he touches will turn to shit. The same people he passed on the way up he will pass on the way down and it couldn’t have happened to a more deserving clown.

    • Casor_Greener

      Nobody hating on New York, it’s just them boys are making trash music…better yet, let me say – music nobody wants to hear. not to sound cliche but when New york was controlling the air waves they were hating on other regions and clowning the south. Cats got fat while we starved. Now these dudes sound bitter or can’t adapt. Wu-Tang aint coming back. Nobody trying to listen to some nonsense about hieroglyphics and strange religions. You still got Jay and Puff…

      • Montezuma1

        Trash is subjective. Come better man. “cats got fat while we starved” No we started rap and got rightfully paid while others learned how to do what we created. What NY artists are bitter about is they can’t get support on radio because all the payola dollars go towards artists that have no possibility of longevity. There’s maybe 6 artists in the entire country with album to album relevance. Southern fans are delusional. Hot singles mean nothing but that’s exactly what comes out of Atl. I liked UOENO, Some Type of Way and Futures hits because hot MUSIC is hot music. However, none of those people will be around in the near future because their success is driven on sound not skill. That’s the NEW hip hop.

        Furthermore, you dudes gotta stop being so sensitive and general in your accusations. A NY dude put Nelly on Manage TI and Luda. The sheer ignorance from some of you is startling. When NY isn’t influential on the mic we’re still influential behind the scenes. I can only assume you guys are very young and have a lot to learn. I spoke on 50, made no mention of the South and here you come. NY isn’t responsible for your failures man. That’s between you and the man in the mirror.

      • Casor_Greener

        You said hate for New York was programmed which is what I addressed. Nobody hating on NY for no reason. You’re speaking as if everyone owes everything to New York because “some NY dude put them on”. that doesn’t mean anything. If that’s the case then why are they not putting more NY dudes on? Because nobody is feeling their music. The dollar rules all and NY rap isn’t what’s hot right now. I’m sure it will be back, but stop acting like it’s a plot.

        Personally I don’t give a damn “who runs rap”, but lets be truthful about the situation. You cats fell off

      • Montezuma1

        Lets be truthful about the situation the MUSIC biz fell off and RAP fell harder. Nobody’s winning so what are you dudes celebrating?

      • Montezuma1

        You responded because it applied. The only thing everyone owes NY is respect if they enjoy hip hop or make a living off of it. That’s all. You stated we ate while you guys starved. Such a childish assessment of things. NY dudes are in it for paper not regional pride. That’s why I pointed out the role NYers played in Nelly, TI, Luda, etc. Jay Z was instrumental in Jeezy and Rick Ross. Diddy is the driving force behind Ross right now. I can go down the line. We can’t help EVERYBODY!! You will never acknowledge the facts because then you’ll have to acknowledge the inferiority complex that’s at the root of your hate.

      • Casor_Greener

        What complex? I’ve been to NY plenty and made money – legal no street shit so don’t confuse this with internet G talk. MY wife loves shopping in NY and buying all that over priced garbage we can get for cheaper online…but hey a happy wife is a happy life.

        You all have a “SUPERIORTY complex” not the other way around. I don’t mind hearing about the Yankees all day even when you ain’t even in the playoff hunt, but y’all got isht confused on this rap isht.

        first it’s everybody sucks, then it’s everybody owes you, then it’s yall getting hated on, then it’s nobody helping y’all, man wtf. Bottom line is you all need to make better music. Stop trying to find the secret as to why we winning and and learn why y’all losing.

      • Montezuma1

        “cats got fat while we starved.” Who’s fault is that? lmao. We were starving too so we created a way out for us and YOU. What else do you want? lmao

      • Who is owed respect or anything? Last I checked you gotta earn that. How can you help others and not help your own? Evidently, you CANT help everybody cuz yall aint helping ya selves. Isn’t that ass backwards? Not from the south or nyc, i go hard wit hiphop from coast to coast

      • Montezuma1

        The birthplace of rap is owed respect. Thought that was clear. You went off on a tangent to justify your unrelated opinion but okay.

      • You tried making it sound like new york put everybody on and shit, so I posed a question to you. How can yall be helping everybody and can’t help ya selves? Hard one to answer huh. Don’t nobody owe yall shit and that’s the problem. You acting like yall entitled some respect when other folks who aren’t from NY couldn’t give two fucks about yall and that’s just real. NY didn’t teach them boys from the bay or down south to sell out they trunk, that’s one example of yall not being the innovators of EVERYTHING. If someone takes your model and makes it more efficient they really don’t owe you shit, in actuality they created something unique.

      • Montezuma1

        No you did what all haters do. Turn every comment into an opportunity to express your hate. You’re just a sick ignorant country fool. Envious of the very people you impersonate. You didn’t start shit. Every time one of you fools spit a rhyme to a beat you’re trying to be like NY and that’s what kills you. Sell out the trunk? I’d rather sell out the store. Master P for all his “hustle” selling out the trunk is trying to do a reality show about his dysfunctional family. I don’t know what his bank account look like but that’s not the move of a man worth 300 million. You ni99as believe your own lies. The hate won’t change history or facts. We started it and the best to ever do it come from NYC. Scarface is decent. Dre 3000 stands out because of his peers who can barely put coherent sentences together. Even the psychobabble about Aliens Outkast spit was inspired by NY cult leader Dr. York and his Ideology. I can break down the entire influence of NY going back to the Jews who left NY to start Hollywood to the gangsters from NY who started Las Vegas and even Chicago’s biggest gangster was Al Capone who fled NY to save his life. Hate us but our influence in rap and everything is undeniable. Only a fool like you would fix his mouth to disparage the best that ever did it. You go anywhere in this country you’ll find NYers getting paper. Go to NY and you sucker ass ni99as is shopping and in awe that the town don’t shut down at midnight. I don’t blame y’all for hating. You hate us cause you cannot be us. Now go kill yourself you born loser.

      • Weak nigga u still ain’t answered my question….since you can’t answer I’ll ask another. What in thee absolute fk makes you think anywhere wants to emulate New York? I’ll even use hip hop for this example, if you think yall so influential why the fk it ain’t no new new york niggaz on top right now? Shiiiiid yall lil new new york niggaz started gangbangin and use beats that sound awfully southern. That respect sht go both ways nigga, but since u tried to go hard I can’t respect u. So ill end this with a big FCK U and yo town…how can I be a hater of new york when I like all coasts music, but naw bruh don’t nobody wanna be yall man

      • Montezuma1

        Anybody who raps is trying to be like NY. Period. Y’all keep shifting the starting point to make yourself look good but there’s only one starting point and it’s in NYC. Everyone rapping is emulating the style that started there just like if we all started playing GoGo we’d be emulating the style of DC. Y’all are just so damn stupid you can’t even see how you’re emulating us through OUR culture. Start something of your own. I’ll be waiting,

    • Savimbi

      50’s failure to develop their careers? what you talking about? GUNIT comp, Bank’s debut, Yayo’s debut all dropped before 50 even dropped his second album and this against the label’s wishes. Banks himself said he didn’t feel like rapping after his pops died. 50 was already on his way even before Eminem, niggas knew about him prior state wide and this is pre internet era

      • Montezuma1

        On his way where? I was in NY. He was Nipsey Hussle!!!! Had a buzz but buzz alone don’t sell 10 million. You clearly don’t understand the economic of music and believe the bulk of fans care about “quality.”

      • Savimbi

        Troy ave is that you?

      • Hector G

        these guys are just talkin garbage like they forgot 50 cent was big artist. Tryin to discredit his career that was FACT: bigger than their favourite rapper lol.

      • hoeyuno

        Fif was massive when he blew up…that album still go hard..whoever discredits that was either too young or was in a coma in 2003…that shit made established rappers change there ish up

      • Savimbi

        Right and made Jay go into “retirement” lol

      • hoeyuno

        For real tho! ! I remember after GRODT came out seeing a ad in the source with ghostface and a gang of people with a new crew called H-unit?? Seeing vids of royce da 5″9 and crew all in bullet proof vests guardin an abandoned house in the D. It was also the timing when flip mode started calling out Busta for acting like he was super gangster. .all G-unitinfluenced.

      • Vacation maybe….

      • 5% Hov

        Nah….not at all.

        Jay went into retirement because he Won everything. Every one was dead and Hiphop was dying too…. lots of wack music.

        He had to come back.

      • Savimbi

        Nah peep the Breakfast Club interview, he talks about how before GRODT dropped he called a meeting with all the ROC artists and told em 50 was coming and they needed to drop before because if they didn’t it would have been hard for them to catch any momentum…

      • 5% Hov

        Dude that was 03…. that was his advice to his crew.

        When Jay retired – he had put out Blurprint 2 and Black album – he was ON TOP (2004)

        He came back in 2006 when 50 was still HOT so it don’t even make sese.

    • SleepyTheGreat

      By your comments, Im taking it that you were probably 6-7 when GRODT dropped with those foolish comments. 50 hindered the Unit by helping them too much. Hell for his own Get Rich or Die Trying movie, he didnt allow anyone that wasnt from Gunit to be apart of that Soundtrack. If anything them niggas should be ashamed of themselves.

      • Montezuma1

        Helping them too much? Talk to me after you finish swallowing his load.

      • Lmao…..tryna start sum shit

      • SleepyTheGreat

        Your a fag

      • Montezuma1

        That would be your mother who gave birth to you through her amply wide anus.

    • 5% Hov

      Agree with this.

      Smart move by Troy

  • Vinsanity

    50 himself has eitherd his own crew. 50 has belittled them over and over as well as emasculated them all in public view (remember Buck cryin ass) also wouldnt let buck release a cd to try to make money to get out of debt. Banks,yayo,buck, would be fools to go back to 50, and 50 would be a fool to even try because besides 50 they all suck, they sucked as a unit and they suck solo. 50 was right about them not being able to stand on their own and being good for nothing more than just hypemen.

    • Ain’t No Future In Yo Frontin’

      You’re right. He even dissed Mobb Deep when they were signed to G-Unit. (Piggy Bank) He told Jadakiss: ”I’ll do your little ass like Jay did Mobb Deep” I was like WHAT?! 50 likes to remind others that he is the boss. Or they were about to sign but there was definitely contact during that time.

      • Hector G

        piggy bank was before mobb was signed to g unit….and it’s a fact that jay-z won the beef with prodigy so 50 is just stating the obvious pretty much

    • Ionno but buck would have prolly still sold back then…Game music ain’t been wack neither…..banks can spit it but he ain’t gon sell and yall know Tony aint.

  • Montezuma1

    All people in the South want to do is talk about the South. Not this post please. You’ll get your chance before the day’s over. lol

  • GP

    Wow 50 cent still carrying folks. he tried that with dre and em and found himself independent. last time I heard 50 cent was when some old head asked me for 50 cent for a pay phone!

  • GP

    new York rappers not what they use to be. it was a point in time when new York rappers came grimey ie, kool g rap, az, cnn, cats like that . now these new new York rappers trash.

  • foshow38

    50 Cent is the main reason why new york is so separated. Going back to the Fat joe/Ja rule beef!

    • B.U.

      50 is a scapegoate but NY was separated way before that. New York emcees very rarely worked together unless they were on the same team. It was all about the crown and competition. Jay Z is way more responsible for hatin on NY emcees than 50 ever could be. At least 50 challenged them on wax for the people to choose. Jay Z just blackballed dudes.

      • Ipullcards

        Those are facts coming from nyc. That’s just the era being shown. Also how we rock in nyc. We all wanna be Niño Brown. You never hear nyc rappers say they wanna be AZ, they all wanna be alpo! We were Top dog mentality before tde. The rests of everyone saw the juggernaut and said fux that we gone make it cause there’s strength in numbers. Can’t teach an old dog new tricks, can’t teach New York rappers to get along, it’s dog eat dog mentality here! From a new yorker

      • B.U.

        I kinda like the way NY always did it. You have your crew and your sound and that’s how it is. It was rare to see collabs and when you did, it was memorable. Now with all this Kumbaya everybody sounds the same and there’s no competition.

      • Montezuma1

        Don’t tell the country boys that. They think everything is a conspiracy against THEM as if anyone ever cared.

    How 50 Cent really feels about Troy Ave statements

  • B.U.

    Troy Ave realizes that 50 was dissing him with that statement. He tellin Banks and Yayo to raise their standards because standin behind this guy makes you look wack.

    • Arrie Mental Woodard

      standing behind 50 also made them a lot of money that they will never make again

      • B.U.

        No doubt. 50 looking at Banks and Yay like, “What you standing behind this local for? You’re devaluing your own brand”.

      • Arrie Mental Woodard

        crazy thing is after all the back n forth they still ended up on stage together at summer jam…

      • B.U.

        Yeah. I think he was trying to light a fire under them. He an indy artist now and he needs them to work a lot harder

      • Arrie Mental Woodard

        you may be right… on some tough love, punch your homie in the chest and tell him to get his shit together. hopefully anyway because as bad as he needs them, they need him even more

    mane I see all these folks talking bout people hating new York rappers. that’s bs everybody like what they like, but same time its new York own people who be doggin they rappers.

  • 5% Hov

    NEW YORK ALBUM 4.5 stars.. I was seriously impressed. I fucks with Troy Ave heavy.

    As for this interview…. he needs to drop them BSB niggas and look for some better MC’s to tour with.

  • BALLER ✔️

    Banks > 50

    • B.U.

      As a pure lyricist, yes. But in every other catagory, not even close.

      • BALLER ✔️

        AS A RAP POR FUK EVERYTHING ELSE WE TALKING RAP HERE

      • B.U.

        As a Rap Por, you gotta be more than just nice at piecing up dope punchlines. You gotta make an impact. You gotta be able to tell a story and connect. You gotta paint that ill picture with them bars. Banks definitely is one of the best multi syllabic lyricist but 50 is ill when he wanna be.
