50 Cent was put in the hot seat when Complex asked him what he thought about Rick Ross’ recent comment about 50 not having any “value.” With a smile slapped across his face, the Power mogul calmly delivered his answer.
“I don’t know what his value is to music culture at this moment,” he said. “I never made music with him. I don’t have interest in making music with him. You watch guys, a lot of these guys, even when you make reference to music culture and stuff like that, they’re one trick ponies, so they’re going to be gone.
“In Hip Hop, they say, ‘It’s not what have you done, it’s what have you done for me lately,’ right? So you could get next to the guys that got momentum and try and survive based on that, but it’s not a lot going on there.”
Rozay and 50’s beef dates back at least a decade. During an interview with Big Boy earlier this week, Ross revealed why he wouldn’t work with 50.
“Honestly, I’m a businessman,” he said. “If 50 Cent still had value, I may have been done it. But not being funny, homie just ain’t that dude no more. We was riding through L.A. smoking to ‘Hate It or Love It’ yesterday. That shit was dope.
“We was saluting Cool & Dre, that’s Miami who did the production. Game, 50 Cent … That was dope. If he was still making music like that, of course. Drake could hit me, and say, ‘Rozay I got 50 on the record.’ And if he was still dope like he was eight years ago? Rozay will lace that.”
