Dr. Dre Responds To 50 Cent's Comments

After 50 hints at a diss track for Dre and Jimmy Iovine over his headphones, Dr. Dre doesn't seem pleased

Earlier this week 50 Cent took to Twitter and said that Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine were angry at him for coming out with his own headphones to compete with Beats By Dre. 

It only took a day for 50 to say that him and Interscope head honcho Jimmy Iovine and him spoke, and were on good terms. TMZ cameras caught up with Dr. Dre and asked him about 50's remarks, and Dre did not seem pleased at all. "I have no idea what you're talking about," he told TMZ. 

Perhaps Dre was just annoyed with the reporter and was telling the truth. When pressed about 50 Cent's new Sleek headphones causing the controversey he replied, "Is he? I never heard of his headphones."

DRE DIDN'T START A JUICE COMPANY WHEN VITAMIN WATER CAME OUT... 50 IS STEALING INTERSCOPE'S BUSINESS MODEL & PLANS WHEN 50 HAS ALREADY HAD HIS TURN. IT IS DRE'S TURN NOW..

  • lmaoooooo

    i thought dre was gonna be like a producer for the westcoast like dj premier makes beats for any and everybody on the eastcoast but if you not on the same label he really dosent work with other artist that sucks when ice cube keeps asking for a track and cant get one it makes me wonder how dre really is as a person a certified hater lololol

  • lmaooooooooo

    all this shit is about 50 not staying in his place and just being an artist on a label dre dont like that shit.what other rap artist you know first 2 albums went DIAMOND then the moves he makes outside of the record industry in itself is crazy get rich just made the 8mill mark in the u.s this year lol it was released in 2003 lol 15MIL WORLDWIDE i see why rappers hate this guy so much its not even about the music when he saying he still getting that 03 get rich money its a fact lolol

    those who are saying is wack or quiet.aren't these good musics? "they burned me "sunday morning "happy new year "old 2003 ferrari "when it all goes down if these songs are not good musics there's no good music anymore in this industry.

  • webb

    ok everybody knew that dre and em are mad because the helped fifty and he already outpaced them that quick,music-wise em is a beats but overall he ain't got shit on fifty,he has more fans than fifty but fifty is better known worldwide than him,why he called wayne on recovery not fifty? dre called a lot niggas on detox he neglected fifty,dre is simply because he knows that fifty is more of a marketing genius than him he knows sleek will outsell beats by dre,t.o.s and b.i.s.d were both blackballed by jimmy lovine,they ain't promoted the album at all,it's likely they were urging fans not to buy it,anyway dre made a big mistake to say he ain't know fif's headphones the whole knows about it,howcome you don't know about yr homie's stuff,a month ago fifty said that dre is responsible for his success he showed love and respect to dre but is jimmy's slave he does whatever the fuck jimmy asks him to do,dre don't want to produce tracks for fifty anymore,u started helping u should keep up with the help till the end .i don't wish they would beef but dre ain't shit on fifty he's smarter than dre and dre knows it too,dre been around for 27 years,fifty 8 years he's already richer than both dre and em.

    • Alk

      50 might have more money but thats it, em`s sold more records and if 50 was a bigger artist than em he WOULD want him on recovery to make it sell more and he is a marking genius i agree but then surely dre would want him? it just happens he wasn`t on detox or recovery and Em is a bigger artist wayyyyyyy bigger

  • Brizz

    This is like daytime tv or something. I wish dx dont mention dres name again until they have a date on detox.

  • achpe

    Stop the BS!!!!!! All ya hoe a** niggaz talking about how a%% rappers. Get back to the music, beats, rhymes, and life.

  • turrets

    How you cock munchers go around saying 50 sucks all he does is start beef is beyond me, it's this old head fuck face dre who is hating on 50 for making head phones. Like just cause he has those stupid fucking beats by dre no ones else can make head phones.

  • Sadr22

    Man, dre kicked d.o.c to the curb. Now that's fucked up. Maybe it was creative differences but either way, that just tells me dre wants the new generation of rappers on his shit cause look how it's getting eminem along. Dre used to set trends, at least with beats. Now he's trying to be the cool uncle to this era of rap. He did it before with "been there", now he's trying to get his name on tmz with this bullshit incident involving ne-yo, I mean 50. 50 and pharell need to do a song together with them two fruit smoothies singing and tickling each other, featuring ja rule and sir mix a lot.

  • 9Science

    I actually don't care about detox, I haven't since 2005. Radiohead is releasing their album (king of limbs) digitally tomorrow and thats enough for me.

    50 Cent sucks now and only beefs with people to stay relevant his last two albums sucked he hasn't been good since his soundtrack album in 2005.

  • John Chamboullides

    I have a pair of Beats, and they're dirty. If you've never tried them, then shut up and don't talk about them. And sorry 50, but nobody listens to you anymore. I listen to more game now then ever & that's simply because 50 is absolutely terrible. Ever since "curtis" (released in 2007) everything 50 has produced has been horrendous. Even though Dre has had almost all of his lyrics written for him by "Doc" everything he speaks is written FOR him as if HE wrote it. Oh and by the way it was a sad sad day when I saw Mobb Deep join G-Unit. Thank god they're not with them anymore.

    • Mood

      Beats headphones are overpriced garbage. If you know anything about frequency ranges or have ever used sennheisers, you would know you are paying $300 for garbage. Do some research before you talk shit. $50 sennheisers rival $300 beats.

  • hip hop needs this

    Hip hop needs this bad. 50 Has ruined a once promising career.His manufactured beef's over the years have worn thin. Nobody listens or cares about it. This gives an opportunity for Dre to really fuil Detox. People are ready to jump on the I hate 50 band wagon. If Dre goes at him at all you know Eminem wil join Dre. No doubt about it. Eminem cannot get away with avoiding this one. If eminem and Dre go after 50 it would be great for hip hop. This would draw massive attention for Dre. Its important his album does well. No matter what you think of him everyone knows this. Its important for hip hop to still have relavant artist's to continue. Dont pretend like hip hop doesnt feel like the hair band music did in the early 90's. It could lose relivance. Eminem and Dre going after 50 would be a REAL beef. This needs to happen and Dre needs to start it.

    Come on, you think 50 madenuff at Dre bout some headphones that he gone put out a diss song-- he sing to us about how all mad he is? Then Dre ain't take that, do doubt he stick up for his mad consumer electroncs product manufacturing skills, and then THATwhen shit gets REAL! Until Bose calls 'em in and helps squash the beef? These millionaire business tycoons, yo. It's just the hip hop version of advertising, from goin way back. Back in the day there's no way to think of billboards or ads or news or commercials, gotta spread word some kida new ways. A good beef beats gets fools hyped up and spreading the talk like fire, Dre and Fif' know what they doin', hellava lot more than we do. Give these businessmen some fuckin' credit, yall. Look where they got themselves, I mean deaaamn They got some kind of genius about some things--who you do know in your whole life that taken their own shit so fucking far? And they supposed to be mad about some headpones, hell no, they startin an old school ad campain. It's Elementary. And I'mma enjoy this show

    Look what Dre has become... Ignorant piece of shit, of course you've heard about 50's headphones, you just scared he's gonna kill you with them. I know one thing: those Sleek's look 10X better than stupid Beats. And Detox is gonna be overrated hot shit. I already heard 2 tracks off of it and not impressed at all. I Need A Doctor was good because of Skylar Grey on the hook and Eminem outshined Dre the entire song. Kush was terrible. Now 50's new single was fire. He knows what he's doin with his music, keepin it real.

    • J-Hu$$le

      lol you crazy for even thinking I need a doctor was half way decent, that hook sucked ass and Im tired of eminem's whiney ass all the time with the same boring, pity me, flow n now he's about to be crying all over detox (which sucks ass). Kush however got a few rotations in my ride (nothing like Dre Day or Next Episode) But 50 cent? don't even get me started on how much of a pussy that guy is! no one give a fuck about 50 cent

    After all that crying Dre did about how Jerry and Eaz-E was f*cking him, look what he did right after? He stole Snoop Dogg from his own brother Warren G and didn't even help him out. Warren had to go to Def Jam and and get his own deal. Then after Warren went 3x platinum, Dre came back and said "shit, if I knew Warren was going to be Triple Plat, i would of of helped him" Yeah? Really? Dre is a b*tch.

    man for all the shit everyone says about 50, dude is one of the smartest if not the SMARTEST business minded dude in hip hop, probably the music world. Besides Dre's production dude always got hungry producers to give him some bangers for NOTHING! ...and "Get Rich or Die Trying" was DETOX! .....Theis new album Dre is making will suck ass. The first 2 singles already weak as fuck.

    • casper21

      50 made some really good business investments in the past, but his judgment these days is becoming suspect. Dre spent a few years with the company designing his headphones and had a lot of creative input. You haven't heard about any work from 50 going into his headphones because its a no name company compared to the top 5 and they just paid him to stamp his name on them. Which is exactly what everyone else is doing with their headphones. But 50 in essence caused a rift up in Interscope by beefing with Game and forcing everyone to choose sides, and now he's stamping his name on a product that's supposed to compete with Beats by Dre as almost a little slap in Dre's face for not helping him make music the last few years. Moving Gunit distribution to EMI was a smart move, but his fanbase is shrinking by the year, so selling music won't be profitable for him in another year or two. As far as Detox goes, the idea of an album full of dre beats got lost when he started working with all the top producers, so its significance isn't what it would have been a few years ago, but it'll still be worth buying, and who knows it might be really good in the end.

    • r.pgh

      I agree that 50 is a smart fucking business man, but smartest in hip hop or music in general? Not a chance. I think Russell Simmons and Master P would gladly compare bank accounts with 50 any day of the week.

  • dam

    50 and Dre THAT desperate for buzz? Their career is over lol, not that Dre made/wrote/created any songs on his own anyway, so cant really say he ever had a career, 50 cent is careerless without 'Dres' beats too, what an odd pairing haha.

  • Sadr22

    This is what they're trying to pass off as news/beef? Yah, probably on 90210. Why the fuck is 50 getting attention for tmz type shit rather than for his music? Oh yah, cause he's the new ja rule. Nothing but garbage for the last couple years so this is how he keeps his name in the news. Sorry ass shit.
