Ut-oh ! 50 Cent finally caught up with Steve Stoute at the Knick’s game Friday night and his reaction…–well the picture speaks for itself.
50 has had a problem with Steve Stoute for years, stemming from Steve dropping 50 from Columbia Records back in 2000 after he got shot nine times. And during an interview with Funkmaster Flex last year, 50 made it very clear that he didn’t like Steve when he said,
“That’s why I don’t like Steve Stoute. I still don’t like him!” and he explained it had a lot to do with his business practices…
All this came about after Steve Stoute told Angie Martinez who he felt were the top influential rappers,–and although Jay Z, Dr. Dre, Diddy and Kanye West all made his list, 50 didn’t.
When asked why the slight, Steve stated:
He hasn’t had a hit in a really long time. He has not made anything musically that’s changed in a very long time. I feel like he’s always gearing up for something that never happens. Hopefully, now that he’s independent and there’s no record company to blame, his aggressive content will get on the air.
When Angie tried to make a case for 50 by listing his business ventures and deals, Steve continued:
I think that he’s trying to get back. But those guys… music is a great platform. If you’re an entrepreneur, you have… you’re currently active making music, you’re currently active touching people with albums, it makes it much easier to venture into business deals that will become successful using the music to parlay to get it done. And without having music that’s meaningful over the last, probably the last great song he’s made was “I Get Money”? Right? You know how long ago…? Kanye’s put out three albums, four albums since then.
As if all that wasn’t enough, Angie warned Steve that 50 might end up putting him in a song now, to which he replied:
Great! Hopefully IT GETS on the radio!
WOW! So, instead of 50 making a song…he decided to confront him in front of thousands!! lmaooo #gangsta
