- 50centstevestoute500x36250 Cent and Steve Stoute have a deep history of dislike and that beef came alive again in 2013. During a press run for the <i>Tanning Of America</i> mini-doc, Stoute excluded 50 from his list of influential artists during an interview with The Breakfast Club saying the Queens rap star hasn’t been relevant in a while. 50 Cent confronted Stoute during a Knicks game in March of this year. Don't you think it's time to be friends now?
While speaking of a “party record” that he has on the way with 50 Cent, Rico Love had high regards for his collaborator stating that 50 Cent has done many justices in hip-hop that can never be devalued. Rico’s comment comes on the heels of talk that 50 Cent “isn’t influential today” and is “always gearing up for something that never happens.”
“50 is one of those guys you can’t discredit,” Rico Love said in an interview with AllHipHop.com. “You can’t count him out, he’s done so much to affect pop culture in a way that you can’t deny.”
The argument stems from Steve Stoute’s recent ill-favoring comments about 50 Cent and his reluctancy to give the rap mogul a role in his Tanning of America mini-doc, which explores hip-hop’s extreme impact on American culture. “50 hasn’t had a hit in a really long time,” Stoute said on Hot 97. “He has not made anything musically that has changed anything in a very really long time.” Stoute said. “I feel like he’s always gearing up for something that never happens. Hopefully, now that he’s independent and there’s no record company to blame, his aggressive content can get on the air.”
Over the weekend, 50 Cent ran into Stoute and by the looks of the photos, the conversation didn’t go too smoothly.
