50 Cent Speaks On The Lil Wayne vs Birdman Beef & Why Everyone Should Be Careful Talking About It

Yesterday, 50 Cent and his G-Unit crew sat down with MTV for an interview about the current issues between Lil Wayne and Birdman, as well as how him leaving Interscope Records to go independent worked well for him.

Fiddy mentioned that he is surprised to see Weezy and Baby go through what they are currently going through, because they have had their father-son relationship for so long, which is why he believes they will make up. He even said that he remembered opening up for them on the Cash Money tour years ago.

The Queens rapper also explained why he hates when personal things become public to the world, why social media websites like Twitter are bad for you, and warned everyone to be careful about what they say on this Tunechi and Stunna feud.

Lloyd Banks Credits Lil Wayne For Mixtape Return

Lloyd BanksG-Unit’s Lloyd Banks recently spoke on his return to the mixtape circuit and how Lil Wayne was largely responsible for sparking his new underground run.

While crediting his team for the overall mixtape formula, Banks said Weezy took promotional and marketing tool to another level these past few years.

“I would lie to say it doesn’t,” Banks said regarding Wayne‘s motivation. ‘You need something — it’s right there plain in your face. I always felt like that was the formula, like that was the structure I needed to be successful. It’s just like the record label looks at it like you’re over-saturating. They don’t understand the freestyle. They don’t make any money off of the freestyle. Anything that they don’t make money off of, it doesn’t make sense. That’s why I had to get away from it. You can’t tell me this shit doesn’t make sense when this is what got me sittin’ in your office. We’ve done it! We’ve made it possible for Wayne to understand that formula, and he took it and ran with it!”

Eminem has also credited Weezy‘s positive impact on the rap game.

“I stayed up on the music,” Em said in an interview about his past absence from rap. “And without naming any name, it just felt like hip-hop was going downhill…But with this new T.I. album, with this new Lil Wayne album of recent, it seems like things are looking a lot better now. You can appreciate Lil Wayne using different words to rhyme and actually rhyming words that you know. Or T.I., where you hear shit and you’re like Whoa, ah, I wish I would have thought of that! You know what I mean? Or you hear all the compound-syllable rhyming and all that. It just seems like now the craft is getting cared about more.”
