Fat Joe Says Beefing With 50 Cent Made Him More Rich

Posted By on January 11, 2008

It's well know that 50 Cent and Fat Joe have had beef for a while now. Well Fat Joe was recently on BET's "Rap City" and made some statements about his beef with the G-Unit president along with the meaning behind his album title.

50 was on "Rap City" and made statements about Joe like "Fat Joe, he's not really tough,"  "He's the kind of guy who makes idle threats … invites you to a fight and never shows up. My schedule has been on BET for the last two years and he still ain't run into me."  When  Joe got his chance to reply, he was happy to help out stating,  "This dude 50 Cent is a clown, we've been beefing what –three years?" Crack said. " I go to every club in New York City, every hood. Have you ever seen a G-Unit member in a club? The question was eliminate, he can't eliminate Fat Joe. Since I've been beefing with 50 Cent I've become so much richer in my life, so much more millions and keep dropping hit records. And my brother Khaled is dropping heavy records and We da Best and you see that movement. You can't stop us. We untouchable, B."

Joe also explained his album title, The Elephant In The Room while continuing to attack G-Unit, "The elephant is in the room," Joe told "RapCity" host Q-45. "Do you
know the life span of an artist? Artists don't last no more than two
albums. He come out, he a new sensation, he got a hot record. When he
come out with the second album, he don't even have a hit, he's gone,
similar to a Young Buck/Lloyd Banks situation. That's real talk, they
outta here. I've been in the game for 14 years. I've been dropping so
many hits. Do you know how hard it is for a guy to make a hit record
every single time? This record right now is about to be #1 in the
country. It's killin' them. You can't stop me. So my thing is why not
give credit where credit is due?"

"If a dude keep bringing out number one records 'Make It Rain,'…
'Lean Back' made them 'Lean Wit it, Rock Wit It,' made em 'Shoulder
Lean,' matter fact blame me for 'Pop, Lock and Drop It' cause 'Lean
Back' started that. 'Make it Rain'…"Rihanna" had to talk about it,
she had to get an umbrella. How many people you seen make it rain after
a song like that? But they don't want to talk about Fat Joe like he's
top ten. Elephant is in the Room, the Room is hip-hop!"
