50 Cent had the internet going nuts when it was reported yesterday (August 12) that the G-Unit emcee invaded longtime rival Shyne’s XXL Magazine conference call.
MTV News caught up with Shyne to get the rapper’s reaction to 50’s latest antics. “Wow. That’s like an all-time low,” said Shyne of the conference calls. “I didn’t know he was so desperate. He’s gone from confidential informant, witness-protection program dude, getting order [of protection] on muthafuckas. Now he’s a stalker. I was in shock. He called up saying he was ‘Jamal from Harlem.’ He didn’t call up saying he’s Curtis Jackson, Hawaii 5-0. He’s a busta. I can’t believe it. I can’t believe he would stoop to that low. Then again, a guy in the witness-protection program, he has no shame.”
Shyne, who revealed that he didn’t even know 50 called in until the interviews had concluded, continued to speak on his longtime nemesis. “You know how it is. When you do these things, you always gotta expect a muthafucka to call and he might be disgruntled. We took it as another disgruntled person. ‘Cause you know, I don’t know what his voice sounds like. I don’t listen to nothing he do. If we on the yard, and they put his video on, they change the TV in the yard.”
“I don’t jack that dude on no level,” added Shyne, who was famously dissed by 50 on the 2005 diss track, “Piggy Bank.” “I don’t know what his voice sound like. But somebody at Def Jam caught him. He’s been reaching out to one of my generals in the street begging for peace. He caught his voice too. It was after the fact.”
Shyne concluded the interview by suggesting that 50 Cent “take some steroids. Find something to do.”
