At one time, G-Unit general 50 Cent was one of the mixtape game’s most respected rhyme slingers and built much of his fame from his relentless grind. As his name and fortunes rose, Fif took on more of a business route putting the music aside but it appears the South Jamaica, Queens native is coming back to reclaim the streets with a blistering new track from his Street King Energy series, the sixth track “Love, Hate, Love” – and a former comrade along with arguably rap’s biggest star get a couple of swift jabs from Ferrari 50.
The track starts off slow with a stirring soul vocal sample serving as the backdrop. When the track gets going, 50 sounds sinister after he lyrically launches a salvo in the direction of Young Money captain Lil Wayne. “Acting like a white boy bored, now you wanna jump a flight of stairs on a skateboard/Ni---, why the f--- ya pants so tight?/You trying to show ni---- your ass, your alternative life” – Ouch, 50!
But Wayne wasn’t the only rapper to catch a stray from Mr. Jackson as former ally Game catches some pretty tough shots too. “I touched more p---- than maxipads/Now Detox can be your little rap rehab/Bi---, just a second visit from the repo man/And you can’t afford your monthlys, I mean God D---.”
As the song made its Web rounds, fans on Twitter offered mixed reviews of the new offering.
“This new 50 cent song is CRAZY, he going in on lil Wayne and TheGame,” tweeted fan @dstokes88. User @Im_KasH pondered aloud, “50 came at lil wayne and game new track ... I kno game gonna reply i hope wayne do too.” Supportive fan @DRIZZY_benny was a bit let down in Fif with the song and said, “I'm sad... 50's new song love hate love he diss's lil wayne n the game.. I still love fiddy.”
This war of words is sure to heat up so stay tuned for this one.
