In a new interview with Live On Lake Street, the rapper opened up about his career, signing to Lil Jon, and his time spent with 50 Cent as an artist signed to G-Unit South.
Scrappy believes that the tension between 50 Cent and The Game is why the two never got a chance to get in the studio together.
“I wanted 50 on there so bad, man,” he said. “I told 50, ‘You gotta do it, because a down south beat with an up north dude, if you get on there, it’s gonna be crazy.'”
The show’s host followed up by asking Scrappy why he believed the collab never happened, to which he speculated it could have been due to his and The Game’s beef at that time. “I think he was still hurting from that Game situation,” Scrappy said. “I can tell he was fucked up about that shit.”
50 Cent can’t seem to avoid confrontation these days. Recently, he was accused of confronting an ex-drug lord over a $1billion lawsuit related to his Power series.
Corey “Ghost” Holland Sr. filed the 10-figure suit against 50 Cent, Courtney Kemp, and the STARZ network in 2021, claiming that Power was based on his life. Since then, Holland claimed that 50 showed up at his house twice.
“A few days later, 50 Cent shows up about a half mile from plaintiff home, and plaintiff sees the same truck that pulled into his driveway at the 50 Cent event,” the legal documents read. “So plaintiff realizes it was either defendant Jackson or his entourage who decided to ‘Pull Up.'”
The document continued: “When you looking for a confrontation your honor, this is what people say, nowadays. Up to this point, plaintiff had ignored a lot of ‘subliminal attacks’ on him online, but now 50 Cent is bringing the drama right to plaintiff front yard.”
“So plaintiff responded to 50 Cent they way any normal person would respond to a possible threat, plaintiff prepared himself for whatever was go happen.”
Corey “Ghost” Holland Sr. claimed the entourage were armed and said it was “clear” 50 Cent wanted to confront him.
