“Nobody Likes Me…But That’s Ok…”
“I bodied Nas, bodied Jay, bodied Ma$e…My resume speaks for itself. My resume is crazy though. Like if you really think about who I bodied. My resume is crazy! You should look at that” –Cam’Ron on DJ Kay Slay’s The Drama Hour
Part 1: Ghostface, Jay-Z, Big Pun, Stickey Fingaz & Fredro Star, Bang ‘Em Smurf & Domination, Murder Inc, Lil’ Kim
Part 2: Fat Joe, Mobb Deep, Shyne, Cassidy, The Lox, AZ, Nas, Game, Diddy, Cam’Ron
When Cam said I started thinking “If someone broke down 50’s resume, what would it look like?”. So I decided to take on this gargantuan task of compiling all of 50’s beefs through his career. The list got so long that I had to split it up into 2 days. Feel free to add on through the comment section until we have the definitive 50 Cent beef list. I’ll make sure to frequently update until the list is perfect.
Who Started It: On the now infamous “How To Rob”, 50 threatened he’d “Stick Rae, Ghost & RZA for those funny ass rings”
Disses: 50 “How To Rob”, Ghost “Clyde Smith”, Masta Killa “One Blood Under W, 50 “Ghostface Freestyle”
Winner: 50. Ghost and Rae never officially replied in song. Though Masta Killa snuck in a subliminal.
Hardest Blow: “Niggas is making skits changing your voice right? Stinking ass Staten Island niggas. Bunch of fuckin drity niggas making songs about picking roaches out of they cereal. Ayo them niggas promote me more than my label. You see ’em they be like ‘Peace God’. What happened to all that gangsta shit. ‘Peace God’?”
Where Are They Now: Wu-Tang is making a new album set to release on SRC/Universal later this year without Ghostface. Ghostface and RZA are rumored to be beefing over past monies owed.
Who Started It: “What Jigga just sold like 4 mil? He got somethin to live for/ Don’t want no nigga puttin four thru that Bentley Coupe door”
Disses: “How To Rob”, Jay “It’s Hot”, Jay “Hova Song Intro”, 50 “Be A Gentleman”
Hardest Blow: “I’m about the dollar what the fuck is 50 Cent?!”
Where Are They Now: Running Def Jam, worth $350 Million and dates Beyonce. Jay & 50 also collaborated for a Reebok commercial, the Roc The Mic Tour and Freeway’s new album. But a rumored cold war still continues to brew between them. Jay threw a jab at 50 on his new single “30 Something”.
Who Started It: “I’ll rob Pun without a gun snatch his piece then run/This nigga weigh 400 pounds, how he gon catch me son?”
Disses: “How To Rob”, Big Pun “My Turn”
Winner: Draw. Pun passed before it got real good.
Hardest Blow: “Told you before I ain’t no motherfuckin rapper understand?
Shit, I don’t make no songs about rappers I don’t like
If I’ma make a song,

That’ll be the name of the motherfucker
“That’s Why I Had to Beat Your Motherfuckin Ass”
featuring Tony Sunshine”
Where Are They Now: See Winner
Sticky Fingaz & Fredro Starr
Who Started It: 50. “Tell Sticky “Gimmie the cash before I empty 3/I beat your ass like that whiteboy on MTV”. Onxy and 50 were cool beofre that. They even put Fif in his first video “React”.
Disses: “How To Rob”, “I’m Sorry Curtis Jackson”, “Jackin’ For Beats”
Winner: 50 by a landslide.
Hardest Blow: 50 smacking Fredro at the Vibe Awards
Where Are They Now: Sticky was in House Of The Dead 2. Fredro signed…
Bang Em Smurf & Domination
Who Started It: 50. They were all friends and Smurf was titled 50’s “street general”. Bang Em is even in the “In Da Club” video and reference in many of 50’s mixtape songs. But things went sour after Smurf was arrested and Curtisssss didn’t bail him out. Then 50 made it public on a Whoo Kid tape. Domination ended up shooting a fair one with The Game, who later beefed with 50 as well.
Disses: Bunch Of Mixtape Freestyles
Winner: 50. Smurf went to jail.
Hardest Blow: “You smell like Queensbridge” -50
Where Are They Now: Smurf’s still in jail. Domo has a solo deal on Koch.
