(AllHipHop News) 2016 is the year of social media sparring. Earlier today (Feb. 26), 50 Cent set his sights on Hot 97’s Program Director, Ebro Darden. The Power player believes that Darden mistakenly blames him for the decline in New York’s Hip-Hop scene.
In an Instagram caption to a picture of Ebro, 50 wrote, “This Guy said I destroyed New York HipHop because I didn’t work with New York artist to cover up he was the program director that wouldn’t play there records. sMH #EFFENVODKA.”
Following 50’s passionate allegations, the veteran radio personality addressed his morning show audience. He asserted that the epic feud between Ja Rule and 50 Cent initiated the demise of New York’s prominence in Rap. “When 50 and Ja didn’t want to work together and people was affiliated on this side and people was on that side, it made other people from other places not also want to do music with those artists,” as reported by Hip Hollywood, “because they didn’t want no problems.”
Ebro would openly elaborate on his perspective. Through a screen shot captured by The Shade Room, Ebro states, “He wanted to throw up a conversation on his Instagram about how I said his beef with Ja and that whole thing divided New York in a way that crippled New York forever,” he says. “50 and I have had this discussion face-to-face. He don’t like it, but then he wants to say I’m covering for the fact that I don’t support New York artists. Well, I’m here for the flames.”
After Ebro made that caustic assertion the Queens rapper has replied. As it relates to the music industry, the emerging entrepreneur challenged radio’s relevance. Again the I instigator beckoned, “”I saw your response truth is you wouldn’t know a hit,if it hit your ass in the head. Radio is all messed up, New artist have to break on line. I know you can’t see it but you don’t mean shit anymore. Buy the time you support records there already working fool. Name one new Artist or song out of New York you broke. Lol you should be ashamed of your self.#EFFENVODKA”
