Lil Wayne & 50 Cent Beef
During an interview with Funkmaster Flex in 2007, 50 Cent got asked about Lil Wayne and why he thinks Wayne is getting asked to appear on other music artists’ singles and remixes. 50 replied by saying Weezy makes the songs good with his verses, but he is a whore for working with anyone:
“A whore sleeps with whoever will pay ’em. So we gotta call him a whore if he’ll just go with whoever pay him to be on their records. He makes those records good. It’s just that he works with anybody. You gotta kinda make it an event.”
In a song that was released in 2007 called “Part Time Lover“, 50 Cent dissed Tune and Birdman with the following lyrics:
“You make me wanna kiss you like Baby kiss Wayne; And make you call me daddy like Baby do Wayne; Damn that shit sounds gay, it’s insane; I guess that’s the price the lil’ nigga pays for fame”
The following year after MTV named Wayne the #1 rapper on their “Hottest MCs In The Game” list, 50 questioned MTV as to why they made this decision when they couldn’t even name the first single off one of his albums:
“You got other artists that are there that haven’t even made their own records… the #1 artist, tell me his first single off of his last album? *Interviewer does not know* How you ‘#1’ and no one knows the record?”
This quote from Fiddy then made Mr. Carter respond, but he didn’t respond with a diss – it was more of a compliment:
“That shits crazy man. I ain’t fuckin’ with 50; he too high up there… I can’t even deal wit none of that. That’s my nigga though. I respect that my name even came out the homie’s mouth. No homo. I respect him. I just took it as a compliment. I’d never go back at 50; that nigga’s a trillionaire. I’m tryin to get there homie. I’m smart, I ain’t dumb.”
In 2008, a Lil Wayne song called “Louisianimal” leaked online and at the start of his verse, Weezy sends shots to 50 Cent:
“All about a dollar, fuck two quarters; Bitch I’ll pour syrup in that Vitamin Water; I hope you die ugly and tonight will be gorgeous”
Wayne also sent a shot to 50 in another song that was released online titled “Let’s Talk Money” by Pimp C. In his verse, Wayne uses wordplay on 50‘s name and the 5-0 term, which is another word for police officers.
“That nigga Pimp called me before he left this bitch; Told me keep doin’ ya thing and don’t tell 50 shit”
50 Cent did not like this diss from Tune and ended up replying backing to him in two new songs called “Play This On The Radio” and “Officer Ricky (Go Head, Try Me)” that were both released in early 2009:
“And I’m on your heels Mr. Carter, I heard you; You want me to die ugly? Okay, don’t end up on the list nigga; Be a missing person like Cam’ron, Ja, Joe; Who want some? Who want it? What up?”
“Where you at Wayne? The full course meal Wayne; You awfully quiet, you call Em out? Well now I’m out, I got my vultures out, you got get pass me to get Em; I’m the baby over here, I’m the smallest nigga in my clique”
In the bottom quote were 50 is saying Wayne called Eminem out, he is talking about when Wayne mentioned to DJ Semtex in a interview that took place in London back in 2008 that he hit up Eminem to collaborate on a song with him, but he never got a reply back, so he thinks Em may be scared to work with him.
Not long after dropping the diss songs, 50 Cent also uploaded a video to his YouTube account were he sent warning shots to Rick Ross and DJ Khaled. However, at the start of the clip he mocked Weezy by playing a guitar and told the camera he is working on a new rock album before he says he really ain’t. This was to tease Tune after he announced he had started work on his rock album – Rebirth.
During an interview with MTV, Lil Wayne got asked by the reporter about “Louisianimal” and if it was a diss song towards 50 Cent. To tease 50 even more, Tunechi completely changed the subject of the question. Watch how he answers the question below:
To carry on teasing Fiddy, the Young Money CEO released the official music video for his “Money On My Mind” song in 2010. In the visual, Tune can be seen picking up 50‘s “From Pieces To Weight” book and looking into the camera laughing.
After a year passes, 50 Cent brings back the beef by sending shots to Lil Wayne in one of his tracks titled “Love, Hate, Love“:
“Acting like a white boy bored; Now you wanna jump a flight of stairs on a skateboard; Nigga why the fuck ya pants so tight? You tryna show niggas your ass, your alternative life?”
In 2013, nothing else has happened with this 50 Cent and Mr. Carter beef, but it does seem to have been squashed as they have both been spotted together at Floyd Mayweather Jr. boxing fights. 50 even wished Wayne well after he suffered from a seizure in 2012 and imitated his hilarious deposition videotape in an interview.
