50 Cent Updates: Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, who was born on this date in 1975, is unquestionably one of the most powerful figures in hip-hop today. Fif has always been on top of his game, from music to movies to lucrative commercial projects, ever since he made his unusual entry at the turn of the millennium.
FIF’S Classic RAP slices of beef
The fact that he constantly had someone else’s name in his mouth has maintained a 50’s name in people’s minds. Unlike the typical studio gangster, 50 has not only survived but has also stayed triumphant and relevant throughout his numerous feuds.
50 Cent: Here’s a rundown of some of Fif’s most publicized beef, both inside and outside the studio:
1. Kenneth “Supreme” McGriff
With 50 Cent facing the most feared mobster in his Jamaica, Queens birthplace, the feud between street soldier and kingpin became a narrative reminiscent of David and Goliath.
In the 1950s hit film Get Rich Or Die Trying, this riff was presented. Is this the actual ending? Fif is now a prosperous businessman, while Supreme is serving a life sentence in a federal supermax prison.
2. Big Pun
On 50’s first well-recognized hit, “How To Rob,” which he co-wrote with The Madd Rapper, he raps about him catching some of your favorite rappers and R&B artists slipping. Big Pun, the Terror Squad’s top recruit, was one of them, and he didn’t take it lightly.
On one of the tracks on Pun’s Yeeeah Baby! the album, he says Fif, “I’m gonna write a song called ‘How I beat your fuckin ass’…” With this beef, nothing ever occurred off the wax, and Pun died unexpectedly on February 7, 2000.
3. The Game
If you weren’t with the G-Unit when they were at the top of the rap game around the turn of the century, you and your gang were destined to get rolled over. The Game, who was the only non-East Coast recruit on the Guerrilla Unit group, made the mistake of assuming that his career would continue to thrive without 50.
With no support from G-onslaught Unit’s of combat records or the futile “Boycott G-Unit” campaign, it’s safe to conclude that Fif comes out on top in this one.
4. Rick Ross
After his spat with Mr. Jackson, The Bawse looked to be the only musician who was able to keep his relevance. Ironically, the feud began over an alleged improper look directed towards Ross during the BET Awards. These two swapped bars until Fif dropped the single “Officer Ricky,” in which 50 vowed to “screw up your life for fun.”
Gunplay from Ross’ Maybach Music Group allegedly had his necklace taken during the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta, and Fif was photographed wearing the chain days later.
5. Ja Rule
His struggle with 50 Cent should’ve served as a warning to other artists who had a beef with the Queens rapper. Because these two were from the same neighborhood, the feud was all the more personal. While 50 says Rule hid under the protection of “Supreme” McGriff, who was accused of arranging the failed hit on Jackson, Rule continued to have a great career until the constant physical confrontations and brutal bullets were too much for the certified platinum Murder Inc. singer.
These two collided on a flight this year, but time must have mended old scars since they only exchanged a “what’s up” as they soared together.
