50 Cent, long-known for taking jabs at other Hip Hop artists, had some interesting things to say about Jay-Z in a recent interview.
The Queens rapper said it was Jay’s marriage to superstar singer Beyonce – and not his own music – that made Hov the international star he is today, according to PR-Inside.com.
“I’m a big fan of Jay-Z, but outside of the States and Hip Hop circles,
no one really knew who he was until he married Beyonce’,” said Fif in the interview.
The G-Unit general also said that reports of Jay-Z’s total estimated worth of $1 billion is inaccurate. “I don’t believe he’s worth that much! It’s all been exaggerated. I’m
comfortable. I don’t want for anything so I’m not in a race.“
This far from the first time 50 has had less than flattering comments towards Jay-Z in the past, as 50 has criticized Hov’s previous work as Def Jam president. The two had a very minor dispute years ago, when Jay-Z responded to 50’s underground hit “How to Rob” by rhyming at a Summer Jam concert: “I’m about a dollar/Who the fuck is 50 Cent?“
