Last Friday, Fiddy was papped confronting a man identified as Steve Stoute. What was his offence?, He made derogatory statements about the rapper on air.it all stemmed from an interview did with Hot 97′s Angie Martinez where he discussed who he felt were the top influential rappers and Jay Z, Dr. Dre, Diddy and Kanye West all made his list. Unfortunately, 50 Cent, who had just left record label giant Interscope for an indie label, did not.
He hasn’t had a hit in a really long time. He has not made anything musically that’s changed in a very long time. I feel like he’s always gearing up for something that never happens. Hopefully, now that he’s independent and there’s no record company to blame, his aggressive content will get on the air.When Angie tried to make a case for 50 by listing his business ventures and deals, Steve continued:
I think that he’s trying to get back. But those guys… music is a great platform. If you’re an entrepreneur, you have… you’re currently active making music, you’re currently active touching people with albums, it makes it much easier to venture into business deals that will become successful using the music to parlay to get it done. And without having music that’s meaningful over the last, probably the last great song he’s made was “I Get Money”? Right? You know how long ago…? Kanye’s put out three albums, four albums since then.Also, 50 has a histroy with stoute and it dates back to 2000, Steve Stoute was head of Columbia Records Urban department and he dropped 50 from the label after he got shot nine times.
