50 Cent Calls Lil Wayne a ‘Junkie’
An avid lover of "beef," 50 Cent berated Kanye West and Lil Wayne on Sirius Satellite Radio show Shade 45 this weekend. "I'm surprised he got away with it," 50 said when discussing Kanye West's platinum album, '808s & Heartbreak.' "That album is supposed to be a brick." 50 began mocking West's all-singing, vocoder-laced album when the two were set to go head-to-head for the second year in a row, but the Chicago-bred producer's album was released a month early while 50's album was delayed.
50 went on to attack Lil Wayne, calling the rapper a "junkie" and "little baby." "[Wayne] had a great album, but he makes a lot of records and I think he's gonna exhaust the public with his sound," he said. "He's a talented artist, but if you put us in a space where we're in competition, my consistency will break his neck."
50's latest rants come at a pretty convenient time. The rapper's new album, 'Before I Self Destruct' is set to hit stores on Feb. 3. "I do this the best," 50 said as he boast about his ability to cause drama. "I'm relevant year round. To be honest with you, the reality television show [MTV's 'The Money & The Power,' which has since been canceled] was nothing but a commercial for my album."
