    Rick Ross continues to fire back at 50 Cent, this time saying that the G-Unit general is the reason why Marc Ecko's clothing empire is failing. Talking to radio personality Bodo, Ricky detailed 50's short-lived history with women and bad business ventures. "The music ended his career," Ross explained. [watch here] "The way he dress ended his career. He almost put Marc Ecko outta business. He f*cked Vivica Fox and ended her career as an actress. It's the truth, it's the truth. We just coming to make hot records, you know what I'm saying? That's how you kill the haters, you continue to be successful, you stay focused. That's what it is, I stay focused, grounded. I never forget the small people. I always go back to my community, you know what I mean? And they embrace it and to me, that's what's important. [watch here]

    50 Cent's clothing line left Marc Ecko's company over a year ago after rumors swirled that the rapper's four-year-old clothing company was on its last leg with Ecko. Staffers at G-Unit Clothing were later notified that they would be let go. 50 would likely retain complete ownership of the brand and attempt to relaunch the line with another manufacturer. Marc Ecko's financial records recently emerged showing his company is nearly $200 million in debt.
