50 Cent is in Animal Ambition mode, and his latest victim is Diddy. The G-Unit mogul ripped into the Bad Boy boss during a recent interview.
When asked to weigh in on the “expiration dates” of his fellow rap moguls including Jay Z and Diddy, 50 didn’t hold back.
“Puff still out there, he don’t even need a record, ’cause he don’t got one. You know Puff ain’t got no music that you want to hear, that ‘Big Homie’ shit is garbage,” he told Baltimore’s 92Q Jams (via MTV News) in reference to Puff’s last single featuring Rick Ross and French Montana.
“I’ma keep it all the way real with you, because the guy said, ‘Don’t worry about if I write rhymes, I write checks,’ and then sings to you,” he continued. “This is why we got rid of Mili Vanilli.”
He had kinder things to say about Jay Z. “You’ll see [Jay Z] around along as he’s been around. What’s he on, like 11 albums?” said 50.
As for himself, he doesn’t plan on doing this forever. “I’m not sure I wanna be around for a long time,” he explained. “I want this project to be a success, Animal Ambition, and I want to become a platform that helps support new young artists.”
This is not the first time 50 has taken shots at Diddy. In a 2012 interview with Chicago’s Power 92, he also called Diddy’s Dirty Money album Last Train to Paris “garbage.”
