    50cent vs Jay Z

    Fiddy said it loud and clear… letting it be known that Hova’s not all he’s cracked up to be. Just ask Andy Cohen, who caught the drop yesterday. That’s when Fif appeared on Bravo’s ‘Watch What Happens Live’…

    50 Cent participated in a segment titled “Plead The Fifth.”

    What’s out there:

    “Jay Z was brought up by 50 Cent when he was asked who he thinks is the “most overrated Hip Hop star of all time.” “Overrated?” 50 said. “Jay Z. He would say he’s overrated. ‘Rather be overrated than underpaid.'”

    In his response, 50 Cent is likely referencing Jay Z’s verse on Kanye West’s “So Appalled.” On the track, Jay says, “I went from the favorite to the most hated, But would you rather be underpaid or overrated?”

    1. LOL ..make our money and get out.

      Who is the greatest of all time …LL COOL Jay already said that.

      Fifty, JayZ, Dr Dre, Puffy knoww.

      Get your money and get out.
      if you are still tryin to sell records at 99 cents you are a fool.

      The money is on tour, if you dont have enough songs to tour…
      GET OFF INSTAGRAM and TWITTER and get in the studio.

      • The only LOGICAL, informed, educated person around here. Thank you for exsisting Traci404!!!

        Best comment! Both of them are.

      • Dr. Dre, Snoop Lion, LL and 50 cent have all broaden their brand from the music studio to the big and small screen. Three of the four are affiliated with Aftermath and G-Unit.

      • The money was in touring back in the day.

        Now, most artists today have 360 deals which means the record co. gets there cut of your tour revenue too.

        So the REAL MONEY is in PUBLISHING…not just shaking your ass and singing/rapping.

    2. Wr all have gotten hip to The MARKETING..and these CREATED BEEFS.
      It sells records…. NO OTHER GENRE of MUSIC keeps confusion going among artists except black folks.

      Latino artist dont
      Classical dont
      Country artist dont beef or dog each other to sell records
      Opera
      Jazz

      NO – Nobody else fall for this ignorant shit – BUT DUMB ASS HIP HOP ARTIST

      And ANDY COHEN is the biggest PIMP ever!

      He is the GAY Richie Rich… Got all yall, acting foolish, for a dollar.
      And he Cashes his check and gives NOTHING back to OUR COMMUNITY.

      When is the last time BRAVO – had a scholarship fund?
      hen is the last time ANDY COHEN left THE HAMPTONS or even gave out a Turkey dinner in Atlanta.

      Yall are Dumb… Being pimped and dont realize it!

      • lets share some hate for the devils who funded this shit as well while we hating ourselves and degrading our people all the time. Niggas love to talk down about each other but never wanna ride on the people who perpetuate all this shit

      • Have to say this. Ready?

        Any and everything in black culture is under attack and its funny how when things aint going so great or attention aint on the others this is when all the crticism (some of it warranted) of everthing black becomes the focal point for people looking to use us as scapegoats to feel better about their miserable lives. Nevermind the things they contribute to make to make some of the negative aspects (no, EVERYTHING is not their fault). As usual they’ll be in complete denial. Whats worse is the self hating black folks who constantly regurgitate everything they say and cant wait to continuously tell other blacks the same ole we’re stupid, we aint shit, we f*cked up, etc. Im not saying some of that shit aint real but guess what? WE LIVING THIS SHIT TOO! WE SEE IT, mutha f*cka! What you prepared to do about it? Constantly talking shit about ourselves aint gonna fix nothing. Dissin our own and running toward some of these white folks to be their pets aint gonna stay nobodys hand from mashing your cowardly ass. Watch all this shit culminate and reach its apex just in time for the new president and watch what the sentiment around the country is gonna be. Just watch and when it happens you’ll realize how things get put together to influence people to think and behave. Black folks have to stop downing each other and realize aint shit popping for any of us until we learn how to work out our problems in-house instead of just hating ourselves in front of everybody who’ll watch. You keep trying to act like you can distance yourself from shit and be seen as just an individual but when some shit happen to your ass you’ll be reminded that nobody give a f*ck about you individually. You still gonna be a n*gger. Step ya game up. Get at these niggas for doin dumb shit but start instillin the love too. All we got is us. Believe what you want to, but dont find that shit out the hard way in the future and be out here lookin f*cked up. Peace.

      • Real talk, Jigga needs to honor his marriage vows and not shag chicks not name Bey. If he treats Bey like his queen, Shawn will show Blue Ivy what a real man is. Keeping it real, son.

    3. Lucifer is still my jam by Jay Z and the accapella is crazy. 50 is a bully and always pressed about something. Ugly nigga is rich and should be happy, but naw he bites into bitch shit ALL the time. What real man will waste his energy/breath speaking on the next man?? I’ll wait…(crickets)

        • You’d have to be REALLY old to have no knowledge of white Rockers who were making ‘songs about the Devil’ years before blacks got hip.

          • AND BLACKS WAS’NT MAKING SONGS ABOUT THE DEVIL.

            LISTEN TO ROBERT JOHNSON, ELMORE JAMES, AND MUDDY WATERS MAKE SATANIC REFERENCES.

            JIMI HENDRIX WAS TALKING ABOUT HE WAS THE VOODOO CHILD.

            JAMES BROWN WAS SHOWING ALLEIGANCE TO THE ELITE BY WEARING THE CAPE A SIGN OF ILLUMINATION.

            SLY STONE WAS REPRESENTING DRUGS AND PROMISCUOS SEX.

            FUNKADELIC WAS REPPING SATAN INTHEIR EARLY ALBUMS THERE IS A SKULL DOTTED OVER THE I IN THE FUNKADELIC LOGO PLUS YOU HEAR REFERENCES TO SATAN IN COSMIC SLOP.

      • What’s so interesting is that the song is veiled in that he raps “Lucifer, so. Of the morning, I’m gonna chase you out of earth”. So it sounds like he is rebuking Lucifer.

    4. speaking of beefs a shame 50 is still causing beaTDOWNS FOR PUBLICITY.

      MOTOWN MAY HAVE HAD DRAMA BUT AT LEAST THEY KEPT PERSONAL FUEDS OFF RECORDS.

      RICK JAMES DID NOT WANNA BUST A CAP IN MARVIN GAYE.

      DIANA ROSS DID NOT MAKE A 100 SONGS DISSING MARY WILSON AND CINDY BIRDSONG AND FLO BALLARD AFTER SHE LEFT THNE SUPREMES.

      • RAPPERS ARE GOING TO JAIL, GETTING SHOT AND EN DING UP BROKE.

        HOW MANY RAPPERS WENT TO JAIL AND BEEN SHOT CLAIMING THUG LIFE.

        CAN ONLY NAME A FEW WHITE ENTERTAINERS WHO’S BEEN SHOT.

        JOHN LENNON, DARYL DIMEBAG ABBOT, LANA CLARKSON AND PHIL HARTMAN 2 WERE ROCKERS AND 1 WAS A COMDEIAN.

        SUICIDES LIKE KURT COBAIN AND WENDY O WILLIAMS AND TOBY KATH DOLES’NT COUNT.

            • THE WHITE SERIAL KILLERS HAD HOMOSEXUAL TENDECIES CANT ASK DAHMER, TED BUNDY AND JOHN WAYNE GACIE CAUSE THEY’RE DEAD.

              TIM MCVEIGH WAS A CLOSET HOMO TOO SO WE CAN’T ASK HIM.

              MANSON AND THE SON OIF SAM’S STILL AROUND.

        • putting money behind the most destructive artist or those with an image that suits know will influence the impressionable youth to do bullshit and be full of consumerism is no different than the cointelpro shit that ruin the 60s generation. same shit, different day…they just realize this music works even better. next generation after the thugs who killing and going to jail are the confused manufactured gay generation. peace

    5. jayz cooned his way up the top so did his self hating wife they may not be overrated anymore thanks to the cctv cameras
      and solange whipping his ass. no one is going to take him seriously before other rappers were afraid of him now that solange
      whoop is azz jayz is soft like shyt!!!

      • if jay would have beat solange he would have been worser than the chris brown situation remember a black man who gets in trouble with the law and all of jay’s white friends and endorsements leave him.

        come on if tiger lose friends and deals byu only cheating.

        • no if jayz clapped solange he would be a hypocrite he bitterly stop chris brown for going to 2009 bet awards!! jayz is gonna what he
          deserved!! rihanna was involved into as well

    6. All of them are over-rated. Rakim is the best lyricist hands down, Tupac is the most arrogant, and Big Daddy Kane wasted his potential…My Thoughts!

        • @Anonymous

          Forgot to mention D.O.C. from Death Row. He got sidetracked by an accident, his flow was sic. Black Thought of The Roots. Of course, KRS-ONE forever. Slept on old school cat, Large Professor. Joey Crack aka Fat Joe…Jealous Ones’ Envy…Hard Ish! The list is waay to long.

      • @Tyrone–How did BDK ‘waste his potential?’ Even on his ‘sellout’ songs (That fans & other rappers clowned him for, then said next to nothing when later rappers starting doing the same thing), he was lyrically adept. And 2Pac was more of a poet, if that makes sense.

        • @Raheim

          Kane was ahead of his time, niccas was still on some other ish. I spazzed out when i saw the video for “Ain’t No Half Steppin.” This nicca arrogant wit it, let me watch this video. “I Get The Job Done”…”Lean On Me Remake.” Next thing i know, he smashing Madonna on the low low, gay rumors, all kinds of ish.

          • @Tyrone–Yeah, I know Kane was ahead of his time (For better or worse, considering the super-mainstream/materialistic turn rap took in the mid-90s), and like I said, he was and still is on point lyrically. Of course, we shouldn’t expect anything less from the man who inspired Jay-Z the most, even moreso than Jaz-O. And regarding Madonna, Kane denied he f*cked her in a recent interview, though we all know that rumor stemmed from his being featured in her then-controversial book, ‘Sex,’ which was released in the early ’90s.

        • Big Daddy Kane alienated his core audience after he got on the Barry White singing shit and that Haphazard “Prince Of Darkness Album.

              • @Da Radiant1

                The late 80s hip-hop scene was beautiful to me. We need to take back our culture…Real Talk! Queen Latifah….U.N.I.T.Y one of the best songs all-time, Monie Love, Roxanne, MC Lyte…Black Culture!

    7. overrated is relative. I say Nas(always preferred listening to AZ verses during collabs) and CommonSense but pseudo conscious folk, backpackers and collegiate hood bunnies love them. Only male emcees that keep my interest for an entire album listening are andre benjamin(pre love below), black thought, elzhi, bigL(rip) and murs (love and rockets vol 1 is the business). Kendrick Lamar is a good storyteller but somehow lost the luster from sec.80 on aftermath. JayZ is overhyped but a god to many. Curtis should have volunteered his own name with that question. All of these dinosaurs need to go retire in South Florida and give people born after the 1970s their time.

    8. Some people may not like it but I respect the fact that fifty gives his honest opinion on certain topics. Fifty was asked his opinion, how are ya’ll going to be angry with him for being truthful?
      Don’t we want our entertainers to keep it real?

    9. Nas’s illmatic album, mobb deeps second album and raekwons only built for cuban linx its like them dudes was speaking another language the more you listened the more you caught on I listen now to only the classics special ed was as arrogant as big daddy kane remember the think about it video??

    10. Do yall remember 5 minutes of funk, lol….that’s one of my all time faves , along w anything by Whodini….but I was also into some corny shit. I liked Kid n Play, and Kwame….and the roof, the roof the roof is on fiyahhhhhh

    11. He is only saying that because he is not mentioned when there is talk about all time great rappers,he has that corny rap style,has anybody noticed he gets into internet beef with artist who have been on top for a long time jay z or artist or athlete who are at the top Rozay,Floyd mayweather..GROW UP AND KEEP THINGS MOVING!
