Rapper 50 Cent seems to always be in some type of dispute with other rappers. Ever since the start of his career in the mainstream, with the release of the song “Wanksta” in 2003, he has been making headlines because of it. And even before that, when he was considered only an underground presence, he was making songs disrespecting mainstream artists. It almost appears as if 50 Cent’s chosen route for success is to constantly involve himself in new “beef.” The “Get Rich or Die Trying” star’s most recent targets of attack are super producer Sean “P. Diddy” Combs, rapper Rick Ross and former record executive, Steve Stoute. And maybe a better word would be “was”, since the rapper immediately removed his disrespectful comments after posting them on Instagram.
Despite the fact that 50 Cent has called out many rappers in the mainstream in the past, he has never quite raised the stakes this high. He insinuated that the three hip-hop heavyweights were all gay for each other. Perhaps he realized the severity of his actions soon after. The comments were removed within minutes.
Two photographs, one showing Stoute in a pink shirt embracing Diddy, also in a pink shirt, and the second showing Diddy and Rick Ross at an angle which looks as if the men are about to kiss each other, were posted on 50 Cent’s Instragram page on Wednesday. The caption reads, “I ain’t saying nothing, but something ain’t right. Lmao.”
Though 50 Cent seems confident-sounding, the photos were removed with the quickness.
Clearly 50 Cent and his three most recent targets are not friends. In a documentary, which appeared on VH1 about hip-hop, Stoute referred to 50 Cent as a has-been. As for Rick Ross and P. Diddy’s relationship with the aggressive rapper – the men have been at it for years.
No information has been released with regard to 50 Cent’s true reason for removing the post.
