NEGRO PLEASE: 50 Cent Ain’t “So Tough” On Camera

[Editor's Note: "Blogger's Note" has been taken over by Ron Mexico until further notice]

“What makes you feel like there’s a line to a rapper [in “You So Tough”]?… We use real-life situations to create something that’s entertaining without being specific. That’s entertainment to me. When I have an issue when have you known me to be indirect?… People think that [T.I. snitched], but they’re not saying it because they’re cowardly.” -50 Cent,

What makes us feel like there’s a line to a rapper? I don’t know, 50. Maybe the part about your having 10 weapons in the car likely getting you 10 years in prison despite having the 10 best attorneys from Goldstein, Rosenberg & Levy siphoning your checking account working around the clock for you affected our read on the play.

It’s not like homie said 10 bricks or something generic like that. We all know what rapper/several-time felon just got popped and came off with a sentence softer than baby shit.

[Blogger's Note: That radio version of “You So Tough” might as well be an instrumental. I felt like filling in the damn lyrics myself.]

To answer Mr. Quarter Water’s question, it makes sense a ton of sense to fire indirectly when one could be kicked right the fuck into the stew pot for even commenting on the matter.

I’m amazed that bumbaclots the likes of Curtis “Affidavit” Jackson and Akon (of “notorious car-theft ring” fame) have even pursed their lips to speak on Tippy’s legal matters.

Reeeeeally, 50 Cent? We’re accusing rappers of snitching?

What you know about that? What you know about that? What you know about that?

Probably all about that. 

Wow. That’s gotta be like Michael Jackson poppin up on the next SMACK DVD getting at R. Kelly for fuckin with minors. Actually, it’s like Mike doing so with a 10 year-old boy on his lap finishing his sentences like a hypeman. My initial reaction to the “You So Tough” verse was “I can’t believe 50 came out from behind his 6 million dollar teeth to record this shit.”

Curt Flirt even went so far as to cite Grand Hustle cush mule recording artist B.G.’s “Don’t Talk To Me,” a renouncement of snitch tactics and underworld bitchassness.

“Oooh, they got these niggas. Be gettin busted with like 5, 10 bricks. Go to the feds lookin at life, be home in like three years. You know something ain’t right with that.” -B.G., “Don’t Talk To Me” Life After Cash Money

With accusations of snitching and homosexuality being the greatest possible affronts in hip-hop, 50 took his stab to one of the few places you normally can’t without expecting the beef to transcend mere rapstering.–You know, getting to that Biggie/Tupac level.

Niggas must got Frisbees and coasters hittin store shelves soon because I don’t see T.I. and 50 Cent in a Castor Troy/Sean Archer standoff. Both of these niggas are alleged snitches. The timing for a potential mudfight, however, is impeccable.

I totally see the marketing possibilities. We could have ourselves an action flick in 2009 and everything. Snitch Off starring 50 Cent, T.I. & Val Kilmer.

In principle what 50 says in the video is absolutely correct. Snitching is a very relevant issue. Shit, everyone’s doing it. As I’ve come to say, “snitchin is the new not snitchin.”

I repeat. Not snitchin. 

But what-the fuck-ever, nigga. We know you tombout Tippy. Everyone’s doing it… You know, like snitching. I bet that verse was a real good idea when Curtis Jackson and the Pips passed that blunt around in the studio. What’s the problem now? Feeling a little shy? Not quite ready for the shit storm to begin?

Negro, please.

So–which is it then, Fif? Did you just come up with the line out of thin air and it just so happened to find its way to a Tippy connection? Or are people agreeing with your thinly-veiled claim designed to kickstart a much-needed rapster beef?

Questions? Comments? Requests? Loaded AYEE! OHHHH!!!!

P.S.: I like 239allday’s “Tellin’ On Soldiers” quip. Hilarious.

P.S.S.: I hope it rain on you and you get shocked by that wire.

    1) name one FED case where you get a deal and you dont cooperate…

    2) if 50 snitched who’s in Jail…. (dont say Preme)

    all that using the snitchJacket on Niccas without Paperwork will get you hurt in My streets….

    • Ron Mexico

      neither artist’s snitch status/ghetto pass is on trial here.

      50 half-steppin is, though.

      this is all, of course, within the context of both dudes’ public image, regardless how true.

      • 239allday

        These 50 dick riders should check out the B.G. track “Street Nigga” featuring the nigga T.I.P.

        That record would convert these niggas to TIP riders. Get It…Tip riders! (yuh it was a stretch)


    but 50 clearly stated more than once that he loves making trouble. 50 to me is the best kind of rapper for entertainment. he is a rap star but he still wants to steal everyone elses shine. like he took shots at weezy and weezy never came back. t.i. did not do anything either so far. they have found curtis weakness ignore him and he will waste his time just barking

  • DJ Mydas

    “Curtis Jackson and the Pips” = hilarious.



  • Oneofthemyo’s

    WAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH my boy from holligrove used to say that shit all the time that real niggas song is cool TIP or tippy in mexicos case ripped it this shit is already getting old to me though I guess the public is fiending for a decent beef a la nas and jay, not saying these niggas is on their level but just something high profile i guess but I fuck with both these niggas but I,ma have to ride with T.I THOUGH.
    P.S. What did akon say about ti? and if he did say something these niggas really shouldnt make records or appear on stage with niggas they think or flaw.

  • Maddolies

  • master cheef

    they’re both titans on the mic. what are you gonna do?

  • avenger xl

    Allow me to break ish down to you TRL thugs.

    The definition of Snitching: Going into a illegal or covert arrangments with partners knowing all of the possible risks. Recieving all of the rewards but turning on your partners when you get caught for being while in action or for being flagrant with your moves in the first place.

    Note: If you making money off the books it need to kept more secret than some of these rappers real sexual orientation. You can’t be on blast and do dirt and you cannot sustain dirt for any super long period of time it is all stick and move.

    So if you you know you can get pinched going in for what you are doing and you get pinched and flip on cats who are still free to better your situation that is snitching. But if a crack dealer moves on your street and is messing up your way of life and you work to get rid of him through bullets or the cops that is not snitching that is you trying to protect yours from a predator.

    Law of the Jungle your either the predator or the prey. F the police, F drug dealers, F all criminals period……

  • 313dawg

    But see the whole problem( at least in my opinion) in Hip-Hop is that there is too much damn time spent on what goes in artist personal life..and not enough about the damn music( I wonder why)!! I understand that there is a need for some of this stuff to come out!! But Damn!! What happened to the days when a MoFo’s tape was enuff to keep dudes attention!! There is too much shit going on in rap music in terms of a few good artist for me to be concerned about Fif’s motivation for saying a line that may or may not be aimed at another nigg!! Can you imagine being concerned with what the hell Jam Master Jay did in his free time!! I cant…I just wanted to know when Raising Hell part 2 was coming out!! Rap has become to much of a soap opera and personalities have replaced true talent and love of the art!! In life there are snithces, bitches, and a few real niggas!! How in the hell am I supposed to seperate real niggs..from the clowns when the whole game has become a damn circus!! Maybe the Music again…Someday!!
