Fabolous Clarifies 50 Cent Comments on Twitter

Fab took to Twitter again this morning to clarify his recent controversial statements about 50 Cent and the Queens rapper’s role in the New York rap scene’s downfall.

As previously reported, Loso’s comments didn’t sit well with 50. “Reading what Fab said about me on Twitter was disappointing,” he wrote, on his Website, thisis50.com. “I have extended myself to Fab personally to allow him to expand himself as an international Touring Artist. I thought we were Friends but that’s cool.”

Although Loso’s original comments did include praise of 50 and a note that he wasn’t “taking shots” at him, he still felt the need to clear the air on Twitter this morning.

“Woke up 2 see my twitter topic of discussion bout da 50 Cent concert was taken out of context,” wrote Fab. “Made what I said look like im hatin or dissin. Def wasn’t hatin.. I said if anything it was a good show 4 NY.. And I was invited 2 perform too, BUT I had my own show 2 do at Lincoln U. And I wasn’t dissin 50 either, my opionon was brought on by the history of the 50 Cent’s hip hop career.. 50 Cent responded to my tweets sayin “he was disappointed & thought we were friends”.. But I don’t think i said anything bashing him.. I actually tip my hat 2 50 4 all he has done, but n his help 2 the city theres been some hurt 2 the city… & i don’t/didn’t blame him entirely.”

Fab continued to stand his ground on statements he’d made. “So im wrong 4 my opinion?,” he asked his followers on Twitter. “Even to someone as opinionated as 50 has been thru his career on any & everything/one..?”

Fab also pointed about how blogs and people who leave comments on Websites, played their part in taking his words out of context. “They want everything to b a beef,” he claims. “Guess, u play in dirt, u get dirty.”

50 Cent has yet to respond to these new comments from Fab. –Brooklyne Gipson

    Gay net beef!!


    speaking of back pedals. this nigga Mike Crabtree is cracking me up: u kno both sides came to a ritual agreement (nigga said ritual agreement, LMAO), im a block, anything that coach need me to do, i just want to win & shit. they gave him a lil more money than the initial offer but, C’MON SON (shout out to Ed Lover & Chad Ocho Cinco aka the Black Mexican) he’s already showed his true colors w/ that holdout, IMO.

    FAB’s original full comment:

    Its interesting to c 50 Cent unite wit NY artists when he’s 1 of the reasons NY hip hop became so isolated & crumbled..Do u agree NY?? I wonder if this is a law in the 50th law of power book?? I guess it was a good show 4 NY.. But if u asked 50 a few years ago if he ever saw hisself on stage with any of them he woulda said HELL NO! At 50’s peak his grind was unmatched, image was bulletproof, music was ignorantly motivational & catchy, even classic. most never hav that. So dont think im takin shots at 50.. Jus that NY show had me a lil puzzled.. But i love NY so i couldnt knock it if i wanted to.

    “It’s interesting to c 50 cent unite wit NY artists when he’s 1 of the reasons NY hip hop became so isolated & crumbled,” he wrote. Adding, “I wonder if it’s a law in the 50th law of power book??”

    so what’s beef? whatever lame ass magazines associated with Fiddy can get lame ass so-called fans to believe it is. I personally felt that was a very poignant observation. Fab was on point and spoke professionally.

    Pointless opinionated hate???? That’s Fiddy’s calling card. He went at Jadakiss and Fat Joe just for MAKING a song with Ja, a call to unify New York, and the song was hot (I’m from Nuuuuuuu yoooooooaaaak). I guess it wasnt under his terms…

    Nas was “irrelevant,” Saigon and Joe Budden were “bums” I like the way Fab handle himself he got known to BMF he’s a street dude not a beef dude and I never seen ANYBODY back down from Fiddy, so I dont think Fab will either. Lyrically, Fab will send that boy back to the wig closet for another comedy beef

  • Mr. North

    To put a comment like that on Twitter is gay. He was the one to point out T-Pain was dissing Jay. That was gay. And not expecting a negative response when the statement begins basically with a diss to 50 is gay. This is the most I’ve seen from Fab’s real personality out side of acting extra nonchalant, so I don’t know what to think. Not dissing Fab though I got his music and don’t think he is a homo (no homo).

  • daydeezy

    I can dig that Mr North 50 is Doo Doo…lol and im just thinking if 50 walking up to fab and say whats up? Fab in his (Nose) voice nawwww its cool i was just saying…. thats like walking up to JJ from Good Times , thats a lame Beef if any. and also there are only certain things i would clarify and the rest would be, it what it is and stick to the script. Have some F*&%ing heart FAB and MAN up and say what u feel and then you wont have to sugarcoat it afterwards….lol

  • newyawka631

      It’s apparent you didn’t read my comment on this thread, but by the way you type, I doubt you have a much stronger grasp on reading either.

      Dude, this is day 5 of you typing a comment about me. Seriously, you don’t feel one bit feminine by now?

      All other nonsense aside, you don’t even speak on topics, you just get fellatious on every thread, & @ some point, it seems you would go back to any given comments section & think to yourself, “Damn, I sure do talk about Tony quite a bit…”.

      I don’t know why I’m such a fascination to you, other than the fact that nobody else even knows you exist, nor holds any dialogue with you. You wait for some idiot to jump on here, & as soon as they say something about me, here you come with saliva dgripping & mouth open wide ready to swallow Grands. It makes you look real lame, fam.

      You’re easily the first dude I’ve ever seen attempt to give unwanted mouth sex to another man through the internet. Take that shit to “Craig’s List”, dude.

      Mac & I are so not the same person. LMAO @ niggas who care that much about another man.

      Pathetic on a whole next level, juice.

        it takes a true pioneer to recognize it…so naturally a cat like me cant let it go unnoticed…

        That is how an internet comment board ethering is done…

        well played Grand…

        NewYawka…as a fellow 5 borough dude….it pains me to tell you that you lost

    Fab made an intelligent observation. Very well put. Too bad he chose to back down and back peddle. Why you scared Fab? 50 couldn’t even end Rick Ross’ career, and he was outed as a CO!

    Interesting how, since his musical career/influence has taken a serious dive, 50 Cent has chosen to play nice with other rappers. Way to stay relevant Fif… LOLLERSKATES

  • $ykotic/Don McCaine

    Fab chill with the tweets man. You can’t be that bored yo…

    “This is the most I’ve seen from Fab’s real personality out side of acting extra nonchalant, so I don’t know what to think.”

  • BK’s Finest

    2 points to make……

    1)The whole “50 isolated NYC” is a matter of opinion. What niggas who live outside NYC don’t realize is that we were never isolated and crumbled nor were we ever united (except for a few events). The fact is that *most* NYC rappers were always out for themselves. Some may call it arrogant and selfish but they always had that “survival of the fittest” mentality because that’s how NYC as a whole always was.

    2)Yes…everyone is entitled to their own opinion. But even if Fab is right or wrong why mention it now? Why didn’t he say this shit back then when 50 invited his ass on tour with him to open up his shows? If you feel that a negative person is dividing a place where you live and love why be around that person? That was a phony ass move on Fab part. What’s worse is that he says this shit on a teeny booper social site where only his fans can see and dick riding chicks agree with him. Any other time when people ask him for his opinions in person and on interviews he wanna act nonchalant.

    LOL @ him still trying to justify himself. Lame……

  • Still A Fan of Fif

    My name is this b/c of the niggas in these type of forums. 2003, Fifty was the nigga to roll with, now that he paid, niggas dont like him. I mean is it the money, or do you perceive a lack of hunger. Niggas acting like 50 is bitchmade and they know he is one of the last rappers that they would confront physically.
    Fab was a little gay for that remark…he don’t always gotta have an opinion, but whatever’s clever for him. 50 tryna unite NY should be applauded, but as far as him destroying NY hiphop, niggas disrespecting him(just as Nas and Jigga were treated when they had the crown) and he was blatant with his.
    Moral: Stop Hating

    Get over it
    both these niggas soft as shit if you feel a certain way about a nigga Fab then so be it who gives a fuck what that snitch ass nigga think you ain’t gotta explain shit.

    and co-sign anutha_level niggas on this site act like they on their period and shit bitchin about what this person what that person said yall clowns are on a thread you can only go so hard from in front of your computer

    • $ykotic/Don McCaine

      Excuse me but ain’t you the same person who wondered what another man was doing with his time commenting on this site(Tony Grands)?

      Who dropped you were the godson of Kurtis Blow? And you REALLY do music like no one else has or has ever done on this site?

      How do you know that?

      How do you know both of these men are soft?

      I have NEVER seen you drop a 16 on here. I have never seen you drop REAL KNOWLEDGE on XXL. You know, knowledge that your godfather or whatever your relation is to him or those that would have told you/taught you about the rap industry. WHERE’S THAT AT. Your blog is bland. No voice/imput/thoughts of your own, just click so I can get $. My 11 year old child can do that.

      All I saw/see you do is defend DRAKE and say a lot of nothing about OTHERS WHO COMMENT. You come through plenty a night and try to downplay other men for their thoughts, for whatever your purpose is.

      Oh, did I forget to type you are only 18-ish?

      Now I would be more than happy to show love to any human on this planet. Do the knowledge before you speak, you might be able to understand.

    Fab is corny, his records sales are not that high at all. cant you see through this. he thought by him saying something about 50, his sales will go up. I’m sorry Fab some of your person is nice, but you and Ray J are in the same boat & also in the same money bracket.

  • carol

    Fab is corny, his records sales are not that high at all. He figure if he say something about 50 his sales will go up. Fab that is so played out. singers dont do that no more.

  • carol

    my comment above I meant to put some of your music is nice. just some. I dont buy your CD I just listen to your songs on the radio. I will not buy a CD with only 1 or 2 good songs. 50 have way more money then you will ever see. stop hating on 50. stop drinking hater ade.
