Fifty Cent recently got wind of a comment made on a recent episode of “Drink Champs” that had him scratching his head.
Reportedly on the episode, N.O.R.E. recalled a conversation held with Jay Z. This is what was said,
“Jay-Z told him Em would only play the Dr. Dre-led Super Bowl halftime show if Fif was also down to appear.”
However, the exchange baffled Fifty once he heard it.
So, Fifty responded.
“Why would he have to say that should be the question?”
Clearly, Fifty knew nothing about such an exchange and could find no rationale for why such an exchange would exist.
Furthermore, Fifty didn’t merely respond to the rumors of ties between Eminem’s performance and his, but also the reference made to Eminem. In the discussion, Eminem was not immediately referenced by name but rather with the moniker “white guy.”
Fifty on Eminem as that “White Guy.”
In N.O.R.E.’s recollection of the conversation with Jay-Z, it went something like this,
“I said to JAY-Z, I have to ask this straight up, ‘Who is gonna perform at the N.F.L?’ He said to me — and I’m sorry for everybody who don’t understand — and he said, ‘the white guy called for 50 Cent’.”
This statement alone threw 50cent for a loop. And we can understand why. Given Eminem’s presence in the industry, why would anyone refer to him as the “white guy.” So Fifty summed up the sentiment perfectly,
“Why did he say the white boy? Why he didn’t say the biggest rap artist in the world?”
There is so much off about this conversation that one would hardly know where to begin. However, Fifty has nullified whatever claims about Eminem not performing without him.
50 Cent Keeps it Light.
Fifty informed the public that the trending topic doesn’t bother him. So he kept the light heart and came back with a joke. Some may also see it as harmless and others as inflammatory, comparing Jay-Z’s mane to famous artist Basquiat.
“NORE Your big homie is running around trying to look like a gay painter. 🎨👨🎨LOL.”
Realistically, there is nothing to see there because it’s classic Fifty.
Sometimes not everything makes sense. A lot gets lost in translation. However, once the truth is out, it’s safe to say we can move on to the next topic.
