50 Cent takes a swipe at Kanye West for going softJanuary 10th, 2009 - 6:02 pm ICT by ANI
London, January 10 (ANI): 50 Cent may have taken a dig at fellow rapper Kanye West for dumping rap for soft love songs and even suggesting that the latter was gay.
The singer, who rose to fame with the release of his albums Get Rich or Die Tryin” (2003) and The Massacre (2005), had allegedly launched the accusation after Kanye released his latest album, 808s and Heartbreak.
50 Cent was said to be so enraged that a hardman rapper is singing ballads, he was moved to parody his rival in song, from his new album Before I Self-destruct set to be released in February, reports the Mirror.
His Heartless Monster, alleged to be poking fun at Kanye, reads: Its the return of the heartless monster/I should give you n***s a whole R&B record/808s and my hearts broken/I hate all these f***ers with the rainbow colours on.
According to a source, 50 Cent was bent on reclaiming his title after Kanyes Graduation beat his Aftermath the No.1 album spot in 2007.
The source said: 50 said he would hang up his mic last time Kanye beat him to the top spot. But hes come back with a new album and hopes to reclaim Kanyes crown. (ANI)
