The one thing I think we can all agree on when it comes down to 50 Cent is that he will come for you even if you didn’t send for him. The latest person to fall victim to 50 Cent is Brand Nubian member Lord Jamar. In an interview with RapMatic, Lord Jamar dissed Eminem who happens to be close friends with 50 Cent.
“My thing about Eminem and all that, and I hate bringing his fucking name up. My thing about this mothafucka is you can’t crown somebody king and circumvent the true kingdom,” Jamar said. “Like, white people will crown Eminem king because he sold the most records out of all rappers. But, when we go into everyday life of black people, people who are the originators of this shit, we don’t fucking listen to Eminem. We don’t listen to Eminem.”
He continued by saying that he can’t relate to Eminem’s music.
“If you’re talking about smacking your mother and taking pharmaceutical pills and the shit that doesn’t resonate with me, why do I care how good you can rap?”
Well, these comments didn’t sit well with 50 at all. In typical fashion, the rapper took to Instagram to call out Lord Jamar. In a caption, he writes, “Lord Jerome better sit his ass down.”
“I thought you died already nigga. Get the fuck outta here. You ain’t Grand Puba anyway. I’m gonna need a bum ass nigga in one of my shows. I’ll be reaching out shortly.”
Do you think 50 was petty for saying anything? Or, was he simply defending his friend?
