Dr. Dre: 'I Never Heard of 50 Cent's Headphones'
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 50s 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.”
