50 Cent Comes To Chief Keef's Defense, Says He Likes "The Idea Of Chief Keef"

50 Cent congratulates Chief Keef on what he's achieved thus far, understands why he reacted the way he did with Lupe Fiasco.

Whether it’s Chief Keef’s feud with Lupe Fiasco or the recent death of Chicago rapper Joseph “Lil JoJo” Coleman and the Tweets from Keef that followed, the Chicago rapper hasn’t been placed in the greatest of lights lately. But a fellow rapper recently came to the Chicago teen’s defense during an interview this week with V103’s Ryan Cameron.

50 Cent’s commentary on Keef began with the rapper commending the “I Don’t Like” star for reaching mainstream success at such a young age and being able to do it from scratch.

“I like the idea of Chief Keef,” 50 Cent revealed. “The same way I like the idea of Soulja Boy cause I like the idea of someone having a hit at sixteen. He’s actually my son’s age. So without the success that I’ve had, my son could have potentially been Chief Keef…When I look at their situations and I go, ‘Wow, that’s what Hip-Hop culture [does] it allows people to come from completely nothing to make it.’”

Later in the interview, 50 Cent addressed the ongoing debacle between Keef and fellow rapper Lupe Fiasco. While Fifty did state that he believed Lupe was referring to a culture and not specifically Keef, he didn’t blame the rapper for reacting the way in which he did.

“The things that Lupe said about Chief Keef I don’t think he said that about him. I think he said it about the actual element, the environment,” said Fifty in a video posted on RapRadar.com. “There’s no way that you don’t personalize it when a person is saying you, talking about you. So when he responded by saying he’s gonna smack him or whatever it’s just cause you keep attacking me. And I’m sitting here, you attacking me, and what am I supposed to do?”

Lastly, the Queens rapper commented on the recent death of Lil JoJo and explained that in a city with so much violence it would take much more than a few diss songs to link Chief Keef or anyone in his crew to the death of the 18-year-old rapper.

“Chicago had 158 homicides this summer, 38 of them was teens,” the rapper explained. “So when they gotta go through an investigation to make sure that that’s actually someone affiliated with Chief Keef. You can’t just put that on ‘em because the boy made a diss song and he out there. If he’s out there and he’s active and you saw all those guns the boys had in that video. It shows that it’s an actual part of their culture.”

    JA RULE FOR PRESIDENT!!!!!!!!! Now on a more serious note.Since Mr.Jackson's downfall in his quality of music as well as sells he stills some how manages to appear in alot of interveiws concerning other artist or just current events. What I am currious to know is, who calls the hypocrite for these interveiws. Like say XXL does an article of Snapbacks vs Fitted hats, who decides they need Mr.Jackson's input. Why does anyone care about what he thinks in regards to such a vast ammount of topics. I DONT!!!! Grant it I was down with the Unit in their prime, before Mr.Jackson took it upon himself to act as if he was the God of ALL. I banged GRODT, it was a classic you cant deny the impact of that album. But then he went on this campaign as if he was the HNIC OF ALL. Mr.Jackson, the HIPHOP community ask that you stay out of everyone else's buisness and try and recapture what once made you relavant.Thank You!!!!!! JA RULE HAS HIS OWN LINE OF BOXERS COMING OUT. RULEWEAR, HE'S GONNA BE ON EVERYBODYS ASS!!!!!!

    • you're lost bro ...

      Fif's input is greatly valued. You might not recognize it, but the man knows a fucking lot. So much that every time he says something it's all over the hip-hop sites. People ask him random shit about the industry all the time, cause he can give you the behind the scenes, an insiders point of view. He has a different view at things and that is what stands out. peace

    • boy'o boy

      yeah. Fif always says things different. I think he was schooling everybody else to not point at the kid, but the society. but then I still think Keef should have had his mouth shut regarding the incident,. peace.

    • Come, 50

      I was expecting 50 to say he was schooling the kid to chill out or else he will end up dead. Ofcourse we know he came from nothing. And the whole Lupe situation was a misunderstanding. We know what Lupe was talking about.

    Hip-hop culture doesn't allow the Chief Keefs of this world to make it...it's the mentally challenged individuals that lack the intellectual capacity to appreciate the Lupe Fiasco's, Nas's, and Black Thought's that make them famous. True hip hop artists get known for their talents not their gossip

  • NRG

    I like the idea of a 16yr old kid making it out from nothing too but the problem is Chief Keef is a no talent hack. The only reason he got a hit was not because hes talented or gifted but because the industry like to glamorize what he represents. And that where the problem lies. If a 16yr old kid is truly talented and is making music in which he talks about the hood in an intelligent way and bring forth all the struggles and hardships involved with that...then great! I would love to hear that kind of music. Thats actually what lupe used to rap about before too. And it was good music because there was lyricism involved. Chief Keef just talks bunch of BS but because he has that "image" hes famous now.

    50 got mad when game blew up. he wanted credit for the songs he helped with. he got it though. if u are in a label with guys u help eachother out to the best of your ability to sell records. now when 50 got mad at game cause game didn't want to feud with fat joe and jada that was b.s. game was well known in mix tapes and underground before 50 and those were guys that helped game out. people don't realize that game would be a big deal no matter what camp he signed with. almost signed with diddy

    50 is a clown. this interview was embarrassing. shows how far he's fallen. he has to explain why he isn't a sellout. that means you're a sellout. 50 cent is this generations mc hammer. mc hammer had a hit song 50 cent had a hit album. both are fads that were hot one second and ice cold the next. they didn't have the talent to come back musically. also notice the lack of confidence in 50 cent giving this album a date. the radio host even checked him on that. "you sure?". 50 just laughed nervously knowing interscope isn't behind it and never will be. the man has crossed everyone that put him in a position of power except eminem. and eminem is a shell of himself who embarrasses himself every outing. the whole label is nearly dead. jimmy is branding outside of music now, with beats and american idol. 50 brands outside of music but he does his own thing. never liked 50 but he was a boss. cant deny that. seeing him now is just sad. promoting his little bullshit DVD movies that go straight to video with ROBERT DENIRO and FOREST WHITTAKER. 50 cent is a loser. anything he touches now is doomed to fail. the single will flop even after he puts all kinda money into radio so they play it. he will stop at nothing to win again and seems to be the only one who doesnt realize he will never win again with his music. even his long time fans know he's done.

    While 50 is sticking up for this loser and soulja boy he really need to start fucking with the people he always beefing with. You see the difference in how he sound on New Day when he matched up with top tier production and artists who actually bring something to the table as opposed to how he sound when he try to go outside the system and fuck with no name producers and unheard of rappers and singers. Time to put the differences with everybody in the industry who is about something to rest and start working with some people on his level or higher. Quit trying to relive Get Rich Or Die Trying. That was a decade ago bro! Time to call Swizz an Premiere an Pharell an No I.D. And hit up Rozay to do a record while you at it along with NAS an Yeezy. Sad thing is none of these people will probably fuck with 50 at this point.

DEFENDING 16-YEARS-OLD RAPPER WHO MADE IT OUT OF NOTHING - IT'S OKAY. DEEFNDING 17-YEARS-OLD RAPPER WHO IS IGNORANT, LAUGHT AT ANOTHER MAN'S DEATH AND TALKING SHIT ABOUT LUPE - THIS IS NOT OKAY. AND I DON'T GIVE A FUCK IF HE IS 10-YEARS-OLD OR 75, IT IS AND WILL ALWAYS BE WRONG. LUPE IS ONE OF THE GREATEST RAPPERS ALIVE AND ONE OF THE BEST LYRICIST EVER.

    good points wolfman...This whole Chief Keef- TWEETING!-about-a-murder-in-a-joking-way is completely astounding to me...Especially since he's about to be featured on Kanye West's new compilation...I thought Kanye was from Chicago? How does it make sense to support (IN ANY WAY) a person who is amused by the murder of a fellow human being? I don't give a fuck where you're from or how tough the area is where you live, joking about someone else's death is NOT COOL, NOT NORMAL, NOT HUMAN. Shame on Kanye. 50 does sound like an intelligent guy, but there is NO OTHER WAY to spin this story, period. Keef made a monumental mistake by tweeting anything even hinting towards that whole shooting, and anyone who SUPPORTS or DEFENDS or BACKS UP or GIVES A PASS or tries to JUSTIFY IT are really wrong, just wrong. THE ONLY way to correctly handle this situation for the sake of the COMMON GOOD and the potential for turning this into a learning experience, is for Kanye West (and whoever else is affiliating themselves with Chief Keef) to dissassociate themselves from dude. Not because the song "I Don't Like" is bad...shit, I thought it was alright. BECAUSE FEATURING A SONG FROM A DUDE WHO JUST GIGGLED ON TWITTER ABOUT A LOCAL KID BEING SHOT TO DEATH IS...is saying that IT'S OKAY, and telling kids that ENGAGING IN A LIFE OF VIOLENCE IS COOL, and TELLING KIDS THEY WILL BE REWARDED IF THEY ENGAGE IN VIOLENCE, ESPECIALLY THE KIND THAT TAKES PEOPLE'S LIVES. Please someone do something...Fuck! p.s.-I am very proud of Lupe Fiasco for standing up and calling people out by name. He deserves to be commended for deciding to do the right thing for the city of Chicago and explaining how "frightening" the culture that Chief Keef represents really is. Espcially when he could have just as easily hollered at Chief Keef for a callobo and made a quick jackpot with no consideration of the message that that decision would have sent. In summary, stop using these troubled teens for your fucking IMAGE, fuck you if you do, for real. Fuckouttahere! You reap what you sow.

    Intelligent me: Good interview from fifth. I was gonna call him out in my little internet safe comment box on the issue with the police investigating Keef, but he admitted to not knowing the facts. Fact is fifth, Keef tweeted about JoJo's murder in a negative light so that's enough -- at the very least -- to implicate him as a potential enemy. Ignorant me: I bet 90% of you don't have the focus to listen an interview and will comment with some lame Boss crap or hater parade shit. Bitches.
