Audio: 50 Cent Calls Diddy’s “Big Homie” Trash

Written by Nigel D. / 04.17.14

50 Cent stopped by Baltimore radio station 92Q Jamz recently to visit with hosts AJ and AngelBaby on the Rap Attack show.

The “I Get Money” hit maker talked about the theme of prosperity for his forthcoming Animal Ambition album, explains why he still makes street music even though he’s financially set, the environment he grew up in that made him the person he is today, Jay Z and Puff Daddy remaining relevant, rapper’s with expiration dates and Puff’s “Big Homie” single being garbage.

“If the [artist] doesn’t have the significant savvy with the business or with our actual culture, he’ll be outta here,” 50 said. You’ll see [Jay Z] around as long as he’s been around. What’s he on, like 11 albums? Puff’s still out there. He don’t even need a record, ’cause he ain’t got one. You know Puffy ain’t got no music that you wanna hear. That Big Homie shit is garbage. I’ma keep it all the way real with you, because the guy said, ‘Don’t worry about if I write rhymes, I write checks,’ and then sings to you. This is why we got rid of Mili Vanilli.”

Schoolboy Q Covers The Source & Speaks On Rapping About His Real Life

Written by Nigel D. / 04.07.14


I’m not scared to put my real life in there like a lot of rappers. Five, six albums in and you still don’t know nothing about their life. You just know they rap good. They crack, but you still don’t know, like, who is this n***a grandma, who’s his uncle, what block he come from. How much was the sodas when he was a kid, you know what I’m saying? N***as don’t put that type of s**t in their music. Everybody’s a mobster now. They got the Vaseline, they got the dope, they got the burner, like who you got the burner from though? How many shots were in the burner? When the cops came what did you do with the burner, you get what I’m saying? What’s your momma name? What’s your homie name, where’s the park that you caught a fade at? Nobody’s going in depth with it like me. Only other n***a doing it like that is YG.

Who do you feel keeps it real with their music?

Audio: 50 Cent Thinks Jay Z & Drake Are Just Getting Started

Written by Nigel D. / 03.30.14

Should Drake respond to Jay Z’s, “Mrs. Drizzy,” line? I think Drake was out of line for his Rolling Stone comments and shouldn’t respond.
