T.I. has his sights on battling 50 Cent in the next Verzuz, but 50 doesn’t seem to be taking the bait. Instead, staying true to himself, he keeps trolling T.I. along with promoting his Power spinoff debuting on STARZ on September 6.
On Friday (September 4), 50 continued the playful war of words by claiming the Atlanta native’s rap career doesn’t hold up in comparison to his.
“My run permanently damaged the culture,” 50 claimed with a picture of T.I. photoshopped onto himself from his G-Unit days. “Get Rich or Die Expeditiously, Nah Bra where is my exhibit in the Trap museum. I moved more of that than y’all too. Facts!”
50 also brought up the sales for T.I.’s I’m Serious debut album, which peaked at No. 98 on the Billboard 200, while 50 had the largest first-week sales for a rapper’s debut in history with Get Rich or Die Tryin’ in 2003.
“I’m still waaaay DOPER than you dude, but Pull UP tho @verzuztv,” T.I. replied in the comments.
T.I. originally issued the Verzuz challenge to 50 on July 6 and has continued to keep the pressure on the Queens rap legend.
“For your birthday I offer you a challenge, sir,” he wrote in July. “Pull yo ass up, man with 20 of your records, man and sit cross from me and get this work, man. But I understand if you don’t want to answer to that challenge because last time you got challenged, Kanye West dusted yo ass off so, you might not want to do that!”
There doesn’t seem to be any real animosity between the two of Hip Hop titans, as 50 actually recruited T.I. for a role in an upcoming CBS All Access series he’s developing titled Twenty Four Seven.
