50 Cent Speaks on Diddy, Rick Ross / Notorious B.I.G. Controversy & Game

The G-Unit leader shed light on a variety of topics including Diddy's partnership with Rick Ross, Game's G-Unit reunion.

While “running around in” Los Angeles after recently receiving a $200 million movie deal, 50 Cent phoned in to speak with Funkmaster Flex, speaking on Diddy, Rick Ross, Game, Lloyd Banks and more. 

When asked if he had a problem with Diddy making moves with Rick Ross after Ross and 50 had their feud, 50 said he didn’t have a problem with it.

“Nah, Puff is really exciting to me because I watch him and, it’s not about a song...He’s hustling,” he noted. “Do I like Diddy? Yeah. I ran into him at Yankees stadium...I think it’s ill when you become bigger than a song.” 

However, he also added that some might be insulted by Diddy mentioning that Ross reminds him of The Notorious B.I.G. in interviews.

“With Rick Ross, he’s trying to do Notorious Ross. It’s almost an insult...That’s what they callin’ it. Notorious Ross is trying to do the Biggie thing.

Another topic that came up was his recent cover shoot with XXL, one that paired him up with Soulja Boy.

“Soulja wouldn’t have got the cover of a magazine before his album came out if I wouldn’t have agreed to do that. I want to see him win, so I did that.” 

Finally, he addressed Game’s comment about reuniting with G-Unit and explained why Lloyd Banks may have been upset with 50 at one point.

“I’m really not interested in working with [Game] because I don’t understand why that happened. Like, Banks had a legitimate reason to be upset with me at one point. His pop passed away and his mom was in a car accident. He shut down. He didn’t see the response he was looking for from the Rotten Apple record and I was a little insensitive in those areas because I don’t know my father and I lost my mother when I was eight. So, I don’t see a reason why I should stop pushing. If your pops passes away...I’ll say this, a person is a luxury I can’t afford.”

I respect his mind ya heard n as far as The Gayme & Young Broke they was nothing before G-Unit remeber that, 50 was already a rich-rap-superstar with GRODT before the world ever knew of Gayme or Young Broke! 50 still prospering and Banks is winning rightnow! What has Gayme or Broke been doing other than keeping G-Unit's name in there mouths???...Red Album release date NEVERary 3011...IRS featuring Young Broke "We Sellin' Everythang"

    Sounds like a more grown-up and mature 50 to me. Didn't try to make insults just answer the questions in a more intellectual and unchildish way...

    Im glad somebody else has noticed G-Unit's number 1 "anonymous" hater!!! Even when you give "anonymous" the facts, he's still mad and still going to hate! Duke got like 10 comments on here, and you know where ever there is 50 news he's following it just to hate! Thats SAD!! The Unit is about to be responsible for another one of the biggest movements in rap, and thats bringing it back to the EAST COAST, where it belongs, New York is about to Unite and The Unit is going to be a key part in it, Banks album is only the begining!! Death to the weirdo, and the haters!!!

      50's worst is B.I.S.D with DVD movies (110k first week sale)(158k if you cheat the count like he did and add 2 week old itunes sales. It didn't get 50 to Wanye's (coke and syrup induced) latest release from solitaire #'s of 258,000 first week sales.(if you count like 50 counted his two week old itunes sales to get 158,000 after 3 years of anticipation!!!)

  • c.webb

    either game or ross will never be in fif's level ,200 millions movie deals ,no other hip hop artist will secure such thing,y'all are saying that g unit fell off y'all are crazy because lately fif and banks are amongst the dudes that have most buzz in the game,lately fif is really relevant lot of people are contacting him over features in their songs,ross hasn't had a gold album yet,game since his debut under the unit game hasn't gone platinum again,hit in clubs lately fif is almost in all of them ,like a g6,mean mug,let's get in,and so on,ggggggggggggggggg unit is back that's why y'all hate.

  • modern malcolm

    i hope 50 goes back to get rich or dying trying type shit

  • nasistheillest

    I think 50's a little fuckedup sayin he did the photo with soulja because soulja could never get a cover without him. That's the same mindset that started him beefin with Game in the first place. I don't like soulja but I know lotsa girls and even guys who don't like real rap are all into him so for fifty to make it sound like he was doin soulja a favour is b/s... i think soulja's doin 50 a fuckin favour. Anyways mean mug is gangsta and its fire, thats what 50 makes good is gangsta shit so he should just stick to that and he'll get sales again.

    • fgxfth

      he did not say soulja could never get a cover without him...he said he MIGHT not have gotten the cover before his album came out if he did not posse with him....

    • Osgood

      Im gonna try not to hate here, but soulja boy, are you fucking kidding me? soulja boy is killing hip hop, along with gucci and flocka flame

  • Heat-357

    50 obviously wasn't worried about sales when he dropped self destruct... jimmy and dre wanted it to be commercial like baby by me and the r kelly song... but he wanted to make it for the true 50 Cent fans who like that shoot a mudda fukka in the head type sh!t.... that's why 90% of all his albums are about guns... and he sold 500k less than a year ago by doing that... he obviously still has a strong following because other than Jay, Eminem, and Weezy and Drake NOBODY is selling over 500k right now........ I usually like lyrics with a lot of depth but lately I've been diggin 50's music.....that song with him and souja boy is hot I play that song every night when I'm leavin work!! And that song with jada is hot too! And banks cd is lookin like it will be friggin amazing!!

  • killah casp

    looks like game was a bitch all along keeps dropping a million disses when really he want back in the unit its funny g unit are wack and dont sell 90% of the rap game hate them yet game wants in still my boi burned game wen he was in the unit none of them did shit part from buck.he the only real g tht was ever in g unit and his album was evan as anticapated as game still he dropped on the realese date it nearly been a year since red album was meant to drop wat the fuks goin on with game he need to step it up

    instead of everyone hating about certain rappers and what not why don't you just support your fav rappers and let shit be. who cares about 50 let him do his thing, let all the commercial cats do their thing and let the true MC's do theirs

  • dafadsfas

    50 is okay, he is becoming more irrelevant but honestly hip hop is becoming so gay with al the wack shit out these days maybe 50 can bring some heat ya his last 2 albums have been trash, but he has potential i am a big game fan, and think he makes better music than 50, but that whole gunit/game beef is over in my opnion for the benefit of hip hop i truly hope lloyd banks drops a good album, because i am sick of all the gay rap out these days honestly though, i think lloyd banks will brick, maybe sell 200 k overall... who knows, maybe games joint will be dope... but mainstream hip hop is just garbage these days, and doesnt sell worth shit if your name is not jay z or eminem

    • sdfgfd

      irrelevant means nobody cares obviously that don't applie to fif because his easily the most hated person in hip hop, people would not have such strong feelings about someone thats irrelevant you would not have even bother to click on the story is he was

    Why do you 50 hater's follow all the 50 news just to hate on the man?? Idiots who are still saying 50 is a snitch, go get proof, instead of repeating what you heard somebody in the barbershop say. Ross and Games sold more records than 50?? Where the fuck have you been getting your info from?? 50's worse album sales were gold!! Ross still has not went gold on his last album?? He can have all the street buzz in the world, if you idiots dont buy his record, then he's just a Correction Officer who took another mans identity, who still hasnt went gold!! And how long has the "Red Album" been coming out for now?? It's been about a year!! Jay said it best "Fuck critics, you can kiss the whole asshole, if you dont like my lyric you can press fast forward"!!! Some of yall need to listen, and take heed!!

    Man I'm a huge game fan but there is no chance in hell that games most recent album sold more than Curtis and there is no chance in hell that the red album will sell more than self destruct... I mean its ok to support rappers you like but there is no reason to lie..

  • Nico 3

    Unlike 50, at least Notorious Ross still has some buzz. If 50's comeback is all riding on Bank's one hit song, then G Unit really is dead. At least Game went out and made his own name. He just needs to get that Red album released.

    • rtgrtjh

      name a classic album rick ross has drop that everyone would agree on rappers get hot all the time questione is can the stand the test of time will people be talking about rick ross 2 years from now theys still will be talkking about fif even if its not about his music

      Unlike 'Notorious Ross' 50 Cent has put out one great album, and also happens to be worth more than Ross ever will, at any time, ever.

    Game is probably 50 biggest hope in this industry right now. Right now banks best shit is rnb with neyo and tony staight garbage with everything he touch aint no chance of him blowin up, face it. Your best bet is to get some of these hardcore industry dudes who just could'nt come into alignment with these labels, but have a name like saigon. G unit is finished, the only thing that keeps banks afloat is these rnb and club records

    Amazing how life makes even the richest dudes swallow their pride...flopping like he did truly forced 50 to change..5 years ago it was fuck everybody and today it's love everybody...I wouldn't put it past 50 to work with game in the next two years..game hasn't fizzled out..he may not have a record buzzing right now but he's continued to post money..it would be dumb of 50 to not re-build the bridges he's burned..g-unit ain't been a label since..3 artists don't make a label..ain't nobody else but 50 and banks buzzing and that's only because they started making peace and not because they've put out music worthy of the buzz.

      as a Game fan this pains me to say - but Game and 50 are both garbage these days. 50 is running around singing shit like "baby by me" and Game is releasin pharell inspired garbage like "Shake" and "Krazy". These 2 were amazin from 2003 to roughly 2006, but now its time to forget about them because theyve lost it big time.
