Diss tracks have long been the standard bearer of great rap beefs, regardless of what today's meme-ified social media culture may say, and there's no one who's more prolific at beefing with other rappers than 50 Cent. The G-Unit chief has been involved in some of the most high-profile feuds in hip-hop history, most notably with his Queens rival Ja Rule and former G-Unit soldier The Game. But while 50's later beefs with Rick Ross and DJ Khaled would eventually shift to viral videos on his ThisIs50 website—and most recently to his Instagram page—he's always had a dedication to the art form of the diss track.

While 50 Cent keeps the barrage of Instagram videos poking fun at Diddy, Rick Ross and French Montana coming, XXL takes a look back at 28 of the G-Unit leader's hardest, most brutal disses aimed at his adversaries over the years.
