During one of Rick Ross’ press tour visits for his new release Port of Miami 2, he stopped by Big Boy’s Neighborhood on Wednesday (July 31), he was asked if he would ever put his longstanding beef with 50 Cent to the side and get on a track together. His reply was nothing short of candid.
“Honestly, I’m a businessman. If 50 Cent still had value, I may have been done it. But not being funny, homie just ain’t that dude no more,” Ross said. “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 and 50 Cent, that was dope. If he was still making music like that, of course.”
Fifty is currently in press run mode with his TV show Power set to return later in August; Complex caught up with the 50 and got his response to Rick Ross’ comments. “I don’t know what his value is to music culture at this moment. I never made music with him. I don’t have interest in making music with him,” 50 replied. “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.”
