Dr. Dre: ‘I Never Heard of 50 Cent’s Headphones’

50 Cent and Dr. Dre

50 Cent claimed that Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine were angry that he released his Sleek by 50 Cent wireless headphones, but the Doc knows nothing about it. While leaving BOA Steakhouse in West Hollywood on Tuesday night, a TMZ cameraman asked the super-producer if there was any truth to 50’s assertion, giving a genuinely surprised response.

“I have no idea what you’re talking about. I never heard of his headphones,” the West Coast veteran said before driving off in his white Bentley.

Earlier this week, 50 took to Twitter to share that Dr. Dre and Interscope boss Jimmy Iovine were upset with him for directly competing with Dre’s Beats by Dr. Dre line. “Jimmy iovine and dre mad at me cause I’m doing sleek by 50,” he wrote. “I guess I’m not going to be on detox Lol.”

He also hinted that he could be making a diss record aimed at the two. “Would you faint if I told you I just wrote a verse about jimmy and dre. Oh my god this is hard. This shit gonna kill,” he said. “Em gonna have a heart attack when he hear this sh*t damn lol.”

  6. T-Mac

    This nigga 50 don’t want it with Dre… He’s just mad because he’s irrelevant in the rap game. Fif… just stop!



    Hey do you have a favourite movie of the year?


  8. bunny69

    50 Cent is a marketing genius. He knows hip-hop/rap “beef” sells. Remember 50 vs Kanye?? Both their fans ran out to buy their albums so their favorite could win. And you people eat it right up, which is why they are millionaires.


  9. A

    I’ve never heard of 50′s headphones either…


  10. sagb

    50 is a 2faced mofo


  11. B4T

    Em gonna be pissed if fif would make a diss track on dre…and I think that he will kill fifty on track if queen’s emc will do it


  12. Samo

    Dre was leaving a club not wanting to be bothered by this camera dude. Not that big a deal. There is no drama. 50′s headphones are on point.


  13. Baller

    good one monkey


  14. dankingkemp

    Where is the new 2pac Materiel..they said they had Thousands of Unreleased Songs…..Now we chat about headphones..Industry is Screwed Up..(dk


  15. welll

    he wasn’t leaving a club he was leaving BOA steakhouse in LA, he seems sort of like an asshole


  16. Mak

    Dont hate on 50 business moves… especially if thats your artist. Those who side with him hating are bitches as well. Keep proving wat type of person u are


  17. janet

    50 is sad, this is not clever marketing its called being Desperate!! and using other peoples to gain some steam cuz he cant do it on his own sooo sad and pathetic!


  18. Samo

    50 didn’t do this, some other people are trying to make this a big deal to bring his stock down.


  19. pinoy 4ever

    It’s obvious Dre doesn’t give a fuck about pity stuff like 50 Cent.



  20. Mes_Cudi

    Don´t tell me they are gonna start beefin´ about THIS. But I don´t think Dre knew anything about it, because 50 started it with his dumbass Tweets.

    Anyway – DETOX is coming.


  21. Jay

    Lol, seriously? Grown up people, people over 30 years old, crying about headphones and trying to get a beef with it? 50 cent, you should make some good songs or just shut up.. Dissing Dre & Jay-Z,, idiot, who got your back? Beani Sigel who wants to diss jay to, but for the rest they laugh at you when you take a shot at dre.. Detox is Coming!


  22. ponyo

    Am sure this is a joke. Because.there was a LOL at the.end…50 and his tactics are tacky as hell though.


  23. EmAyDee

    I pretty much would stop listening to Fif all in all if he went through with it. Like I still don’t listen to him but I give his tracks a chance every now and then. But this would be a career killer


  24. Hip hop needs this

    Hip hop needs this bad. 50 Has ruined a once promising career.His manufactured beef’s over the years have worn thin. Nobody listens or cares about it. This gives an opportunity for Dre to really fuil Detox. People are ready to jump on the I hate 50 band wagon. If Dre goes at him at all you know Eminem wil join Dre. No doubt about it. Eminem cannot get away with avoiding this one. If eminem and Dre go after 50 it would be great for hip hop. This would draw massive attention for Dre. Its important his album does well. No matter what you think of him everyone knows this. Its important for hip hop to still have relavant artist’s to continue. Dont pretend like hip hop doesnt feel like the hair band music did in the early 90′s. It could lose relivance. Eminem and Dre going after 50 would be a REAL beef. This needs to happen and Dre needs to start it.


  25. Tariku Bekele

    What the F*** are people talking? 50 knows when to act in a certain way.Go ahead,man! Make them suffer from envy.


  26. RG*

    if it`s true about the diss record then is the of 50`s career in the hip hop game


  27. RG*

    if it`s true about the diss record then is the end of 50`s career in the hip hop game


  28. Craig

    GTFOH Beef! This is the 3 headed Monsters I say genius as ni***rs here. Dre look like he wanted to box the paps for asking stupid sh**. I got Beats and yes I’m getting the 50 ones. I been wanted a dope ass wireless set. But then again I get all the good sh**. That’s just me.


  29. roro

    50 i BEG you to beef dre
    then em can finally take you out the rap game, you’ve been destroying hip hop for 10 years too long


  30. Goon

    Ya’ll idiots : it’s just for the buzz, like his fake beef with Kanye. Dre and him are gonna released their albums, that’s normal.

    PS : 50 Cent’s headphones are pretty good, and less expensive than Beats by Dr Dre.


  31. sircedrics
