While promoting his upcoming album Port of Miami 2, the Maybach Music boss stopped by “Big Boy’s Neighborhood” on REAL 92.3 on Wednesday (July 31), where he was asked about his ongoing feud with 50 and if they would ever collaborate.
“Honestly, I’m a businessman. If 50 Cent still had value, I may have been done it. But not being funny, homie just ain’t that dude no more,” said Rozay (via Billboard). “We was riding through L.A. smoking to ‘Hate It or Love It’ yesterday. That shit was dope. We was saluting Cool & Dre, that’s Miami who did the production. Game and 50 Cent, that was dope. If he was still making music like that, of course.”
He added, “Drake could hit me, and say, ‘Rozay I got 50 on the record.’ And if he was still dope like he was eight years ago? Rozay will lace that.”
When asked about Rozay’s comments during a subsequent interview with Complex, 50 clapped back at his rival with his own scathing remarks. “I don’t know what his value is to music culture at this moment. I never made music with him. I don’t have interest in making music with him,” he said.
He continued, “A lot of these guys, even when you make reference to music culture and stuff like that, they’re one-trick ponies, so they’re going to be gone. In hip-hop, they say it’s not what have you done, what have you done for me lately, right? So you could get next to the guys that got momentum and try and survive based on that. But, it’s not a lot going on there.”
The rappers have a history of beef that dates back to 2009. They have exchanged disses on tracks including Rozay’s “Mafia Music” and 50’s “Officer Ricky (Go Ahead Try Me).” Last year, a judge dismissed a lawsuit from 50 against Ross for using the “In Da Club” instrumental on his Renzel Remixes mixtape.
