50 Cent Hints at Feud With Dr. Dre Over Competing Headphones
50 has been airing some dirty laundry on Twitter. The root of the problem, according to 50, is Interscope chairman Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre’s displeasure at his competing line of headphones Sleek by 50.
“Jimmy [I]ovine and [D]re mad at me cause I’m doing [S]leek by 50,” the G-Unit honcho stated matter-of-factly on his account yesterday (February 14). He later added: “Would you faint if I told you I just wrote a verse about [J]immy and [D]re. Oh my god this is hard. This shit gonna kill.”
50 also seemed to suggest that he’s been left off Dre’s upcoming album Detox because of the drama. “I guess I’m not going to be on [D]etox Lol,” he wrote.
No word yet from either the Doc or Iovine—who are both partners in Beats by Dre headphones—on 50’s statements. Stay tuned to XXLMag.com as the story develops. —Henry Adaso
