50 Cent vs French Montana

Fifty’s not happy and he has an album coming out so you know what that means? Take anything that could be considered as vaguely insulting by a rapper that’s gaining popularity and throw shots at him. In this case, French Montana’s interview with Complex, in which he basically says that beef is bad for business and that Fifty could have been bigger if he had not beefed with everybody.

How did you get all these people? You seem to be able to secure a lot of relationships.
I’m the underdog and everybody wants the underdog to win. I feel like people have seen where I come from. When you come around me, it’s not fake, it’s the real. I guess a lot of people you be around, it’s not really them. It’s their man that’s sitting next to them, whispering in his ear every two minutes, telling him what to do.

You know if you follow our history you’ll know it’s like, from when we started until now, we’ve been good. We’re not the hottest, we’re not number one, but guess what? Everyday that goes by, we getting bigger and bigger. So I would rather do that, then come in and have a short run. I’d rather have a Cash Money run. Not to say that in a bad way, but 50 Cent could have been a lot bigger.

Of course. I feel like beef hurt him. I feel like it helped Ross unite people. That’s why Maybach Music is one of the biggest labels. It just makes sense.

Do you think Ross will have a longer run than 50 did?
Of course, Ross is on his fifth album. And like I said, he’s only getting bigger. This is going to be Ross’ first platinum album. He never went platinum. So when 50 came up, 50 sold 10 million. Then after his first album he just kept on going down. You think 50 could come out and sell 10 million now?

No, not really.
See, so it’s not where you start from, it’s where you end up at. You learn a lot about the game when you in it. It helps you pace yourself.

I don’t really see anything untrue about this. Fifty’s career had been nose diving since his second album but really started crashing around the time he started beefing with Rick Ross. Of course, Fifty is not one to admit any weakness, so he took to twitter to bash French Montana, instead of refute his arguments.

Update: French Montana responded to Fifty’s tweets. LOL.

And just for fun here’s Fifty bowling with Gunplay’s MMG chain which he likely acquired from this tussle.
