Coping with Chris Lighty’s death has certainly been difficult for 50 Cent, who even managed to put aside his differences with Fat Joe to honor the later mogul during the BET Hip-Hop Awards. Lighty’s death has left Fif without a manager, and he doesn’t seem to be in a rush to find a new one.
Lighty, founder of Violator Management, worked closely with 50 Cent up until his suicide in August shook the hip-hop community. The G-Unit rapper took to Twitter this week to announce that his upcoming Street King Immortal album will be pushed back, since he is now assuming the role of manager as well.
“Watch the fools who decide to question my talent. Find themselves over whelmed but this album,” he wrote.
“I manage myself now that Chris Lighty has passed,” he tweeted. “I’m not going to rush my album out now that I’m doing both job’s.”
The revelation came in the midst of a short Twitter spiel, where he also commented on the state of hip-hop and laughed off newer artists taking shots at him.
“Hip hop has been damaged by fake fraudulent artist who just say anything. Now it seems like authenticity means nothing,” he added, going on to what appears to be a jab at Rick Ross. “The culture is so confused a gangsta is bobbing to a cop LMAO think about it. It’s just the facts.”
And if fans are expecting to hear classic 50 on his upcoming album, think again.
“Don’t ask for the old 50,” he tweeted. “A artist has to grow and do new things. If I just did that style of music the same asshole would be sayin, no good it’s the same. I’m not impressed by some of the new artist it feels like nothings new stop following trends be your self.”
And, just because he’s 50, he had to throw in a couple more jabs, which we can guess were aimed at French Montana. “It’s funny when a new artist try’s to go at me. Fool you got one car and it ain’t paid for yet,” he wrote. Fif and French exchanged words over Twitter last week after the Bronx rapper made comments in an interview with Complex magazine that rubbed the G-Unit CEO the wrong way.
Doesn’t look like there’s an end in sight for this feud.
