50 Cent Confronts Steve Stoute at a Knicks Game
Watch what you say! 50 Cent confronted Steve Stoute during a Knicks game at New York’s Madison Square Garden on Friday (Feb. 28). Photos surfaced of the two men in what appears to be in a heated conversation.
50 Cent may have not taken to kindly to Stoute’s unflattering remarks about his career while chatting with Hot 97 DJ Angie Martinez. During their conversation, the former rap manager-turned-advertising executive believed that Fiddy isn’t an influential artist.
“50 hasn’t had a hit in a really long time,” he told Martinez. “He has not made anything musically that has changed anything in a really long time. I feel like he’s always gearing up for something that never happens.”
50, a guy who doesn’t take smack from anyone, was photographed confronting Stoute during the Knicks game against the Golden State Warriors (see above).
Judging by the pics (posted at HipHop-N-More), it looks like the G-Unit leader was making sure he got his point across while Stoute was trying to diffuse the situation and explained himself.
50 and Stoute have history together dating as far back as 2000 when Stoute was running the Urban department at Sony/Columbia Records. After getting shot nine times, 50 was considered a liability and was dropped by the label. Since then, 50 has never been fond of Stoute.
No word on what happened after their confrontation.
On a positive note, Steve Stoute’s informative hip-hop documentary ‘The Tanning of America‘ is currently running on VH1.com.
