50 Cent Claims He Will Get Irv Gotti’s Show ‘Tales’ Removed From BET
50 Cent's got some big things in store for BET, and apparently, they go well beyond his new TV series 50 Central. Speaking with the hosts of Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club, Fif says he's planning on making major programming changes on the network—specifically, removing Tales, which is a show produced by his arch-enemy, Murder Inc. boss Irv Gotti.
"They'll be gone. They won't be there long. I have full on intentions of removing that," Fif says. "There are adjustments to be made." When show host Charlamagne Tha God pressed him by asking if he appreciated Tales despite his past with Gotti, 50 reveals that he tunes into nearly every episode. According to him, it's a "Cool idea" that's "not well executed."
In somewhat predictable fashion, Gotti responded to Fif trashing his show with an Instagram post. He actually thanks Fif for giving Tales so much large-scale exposure. "All bullshit aside. I WANNA THANK THIS NIGGA. HE PROMOTE MY SHIT BETTER THAN @bet Hahaha," said Gotti in an Instagram post that included Fif's Breakfast Club interview.
He continues, "And it's obvious. YOU LOVE TALES. You just can't say it. Obviously. You say great concept. Poor execution. Hahaha. Fuck outta here!! Everyone. Right after the Hip Hop Awards on Oct 10th. My enemies favorite show returns. Hahaha. TALES. 10pm. Tell a friend to tell a friend. Tales is back. And as far as it stopping. The opposite is happening. TALES is expanding. All Music Genres. Pop. Rock. Country. R&B. Gospel. And across the Globe. Tales Latin. Tales Asia. Tales U.K. Tales Germany. With the VIACOM System. Like you said cock sucker. It's a dope Concept right?? Hahahha. #visionaryideas #talesonbet #talesontidal #hiphopculturedtv Oh. And I am doing Nas's I Gave You Power in Season 2. I thought of that already whore. Lol."
