It appears that the beef between Rick Ross and 50 Cent, which dates back roughly a decade, is still ongoing. During an interview with Big Boy this week — in promotion of his new album, Port of Miami 2 — Rozay revealed why he wouldn't currently work with 50.
"Honestly, I'm a businessman. If 50 Cent still had value, I may have been done it. But not being funny, homie just ain't that dude no more," he said. "We was riding through L.A. smoking to 'Hate It or Love It' yesterday. That shit was dope. We was saluting Cool & Dre, that's Miami who did the production. Game, 50 Cent... That was dope. If he was still making music like that, of course."
"Drake could hit me, and say, 'Rozay I got 50 on the record.' And if he was still dope like he was eight years ago? Rozay will lace that," he went on to add.
After getting wind of Ross' recent comments, 50 Cent responded when speaking with Complex. "I don't know what his value is to music culture at this moment," 50 said of Ross before adding, "I never made music with him. I don't have interest in making music with him."
"A lot of these guys, even when you make reference to music culture and stuff like that, they're one-trick ponies, so they're going to be gone," he continued. "In hip-hop, they say it's not what have you done, what have you done for me lately, right? So you could get next to the guys that got momentum and try and survive based on that. But, it's not a lot going on there."
The feud between Rick Ross and 50 Cent stems from a supposed incident at a BET event roughly a decade ago. Ross then went on to diss 50 in his 2009 track, "Mafia Music." 50 in turn responded by releasing "Officer Ricky (Go Ahead Try Me)," and the beef has continued ever since.
