Rick Ross is a rapper. 50 Cent is a rapper. Neither of them apparently wish to do their respective craft unless it involves taking a shot at the other.
That’s understandable. It keeps them in the news and it keeps the general public believing they are still relevant. When it starts to get personal and putting family members in the mix, that’s when it stops being about the music and all about stupid kindergarten fights at the sandbox.
Is this supposed to be the legacy of modern day rap music?
Furthermore, who really gives a damn who wins this fight? The fact that both of them are willing to waste mine and everyone else’s Internet bandwidth on this crap is a clear indication that the two of them have lost, or forgotten whatever talent they once had. 50 cent especially seems to have lost focus and it’s clear that he needs Rick Ross as a means of something to do.
But really, I don’t give a damn.
Somewhere in the context of all this has to be some music, and not just poorly-produced-must-get-out-in-time-to-attack-back music. I’m talking about the good music that while a diss towards someone is actually something listenable. Putting hate and vile into a song more than actual lyrics and melody makes it clear the beef is too fresh and the perspective unclear.
Maybe I would care about this particular beef or and all the other beefs 50 Cent and the rap artists of the world have with each other if they put the songs out with a thought of quality in mind. As of right now, the most 50 Cent has released that has gained any traction has been a bootleg porn of a baby mama of Rick Ross’ (allegedly). No singing — just skin and lots of moaning.
The video has recently disappeared. Does this mean we get a quality diss album towards 50 Cent’s latest arch nemesis?
Nah. 50 Cent has no heart anymore to make music, so I wouldn’t hold my breath on that subject.
