Born on this date in 1975, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson It is without doubt one of the most influential forces in the game today. From music to movies to successful commercial ventures, Fif has always been at the top of her game since making her offbeat entry at the turn of the last millennium.
The thing that has always kept 50’s name in people’s mouths is the fact that he always had someone else’s name on his! Not to be confused with the common studio gangster, 50 has not only survived, but has remained triumphant and relevant after all his fights.
Here is a short list of some of Fif’s most mentioned meats in and out of the study:
1. Kenneth “Supreme” McGriff
This fight between street soldier and kingpin turned into a David and Goliath story, with 50 Cent fighting the most feared gangster in his Jamaican hometown of Queens. This riff was depicted in the hit movie of the 1950s. Get rich or die trying. The real ending? Fif is a successful businessman and Supreme is currently in a federal supermax correctional facility for life.
two. Great play on words
In the first widely recognized song of the 1950s, “How To Rob,” featuring The Madd Rapper, he creatively spits out scenarios about how he catches several of his favorite rappers and R&B singers slipping. One of them turned out to be the Terror Squad’s top recruit, Big Pun, who didn’t take it very lightly. In Pun’s Yeeeaah baby! album, he tells Fif on one of the tracks, “I’m going to do a song called ‘How I hit your fucking ass’ …”. Nothing ever happened from the wax with this meat and Pun happened suddenly on February 7, 2000.
3. The game
With the Unit G At the top of the rap level in the early 21st century, if you weren’t with them, you and your crew would definitely be rolling. The Game, who happened to be the only recruit in the Guerrilla Unit squad that was not from the East Coast, made the mistake of believing that his career would stay afloat without 50. Unaided against the barrage of battle records from G- Unity the losers “G-Unit Boycott” campaign, it’s safe to say that Fif came out on top of this one.
Bedroom Rick ross
The Bawse seemed to be the only artist who has even been able to stay relevant after the fight with Mr. Jackson. Ironically, this problem started from an alleged wrong look at the BET Awards towards Ross. These two bars traded until Fif came out with the song “Officer Ricky”, in which 50 promised told Rozay “I’m going to fuck your life for fun.” At the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards on ATL, Ross’s Maybach music group Gunplay allegedly took the network from him and Fif was seen using the network days later.
5. Yes rule
His battle with 50 Cent should have been a warning to the rest of the artist who followed him up with a problem with the Queens MC. These two were from the same neighborhood, which made the meat that much more personal. While 50 claims that Rule hid behind the protection of “Supreme” McGriff, who was suspected of facilitating the failed hit to Jackson, Rule maintained a successful career until continued physical confrontations and ruthless shooting proved too much for platinum. Certified Murder Inc. artist. This year, these two collided heads in flight, but time must have healed old wounds because the two simply greeted each other with a “what’s up” while flying together.
