[artist id="860639"]50 Cent[/artist] has had a go at it with more than a few of his fellow rappers, from his scathing beef with Ja Rule to his venomous war of words with Fat Joe.
One clash that didn’t escalate, however, was when the G-Unit leader and [artist id="400206"]Cam’ron[/artist] tossed barbs at each other. According to 50, their dispute wasn’t nearly as personal as it seemed.
In fact, he told MTV News that the Diplomats leader was “a good guy.” “What me and Cam’ron had is music,” 50 said, characterizing their rift as a challenge to be the pre-eminent MC. “It’s the competitive nature of the art form. In hip-hop, there’s always been battling. It’s a part of it. I don’t wake up or go to sleep feeling like I hate Cam’ron. He’s a good guy.”
Just last week, Cam’ron talked to MTV News about 50 and also revealed that things between them are solid.
“I don’t have no problem with 50,” Cam told Sway during “RapFix Live.” “50 cool with me.
“It was good for hip-hop,” he continued. “We had our little hip-hop beef or whatever you wanna call it, but ain’t no problem. Jim and Juelz do stuff with 50 and they camp all the time. I don’t have a problem with 50 at all. It is what it is. We had our little discrepancy, and we moved on from it.”
Over the summer, their protégés — Lloyd Banks and Juelz Santana — joined forces for the summer heater “Beamer, Benz or Bentley.”
