50 Cent reiterated
earlier this week that super producer Dr. Dre will not be collaborating with The

In an interview with Miss Jones and the Hot 97 morning show,
50 Cent drastically countered claims by The Game, who has already started on
his sophomore effort.
“He [Dr. Dre] knows what the kid [The Game] just did and
that’s it. I’m not working on [The Game’s new album] and he’s
not working on it,” said 50 Cent. “He’s just got to go in
and make good records. Of course, he’ll probably name [his album The
Doctor’s Advocate] to make people think [Dre] is involved.”
The Game has already contradicted 50’s claims when discussing
The Doctor’s Advocate.
"It’s the same format at The Documentary. If it
aint broke don’t fix it," Game told AllHipHop.com. "I am still with
Dre and I’m working with some of the best producers.”

Dr. Dre, his history with The Game and his contributions to The Documentary
project were reason enough not to work with the Compton rapper.
“I’ve had communications with Dre since [he appeared
on the BBC radio]. My reason for saying it is…nobody can take anything
away from Dre. We don’t have any issues,” 50 said. “See, Dre
knows exactly how much I did for Game’s project. I wrote six songs on
his album. Three of them are his first three singles and I was on the records
to make people listen to them.”
Game vehemently denied that 50 Cent wrote six songs, but maintained
that they did collaborate creatively.
“We got an understanding. Everything is good,” 50

Cent’s new movie “Get Rich or Die Tryin’,” that featured
the rapper brandishing two handguns.
The posters drew
the wrath of various community groups in Los Angeles, California, who said the
posters were insensitive due to the rise in gun violence in urban communities.
