Rapper Fabolous who is known for the songs “My Time,” “Throw It In The Bag,” “Make Me Better,” “So Into You,” etc. Fabolous grew up in the Brooklyn area of New York which is within 15 miles where 50 Cent was raised in South Jamaica.
On October 6th, Fabolous wrote the above Twitter message and 50 Cent’s blog wrote that he wrote the message because he wasn’t invited to the ThisIs50 Fest. The ThisIs50 Fest had artists performing such as Kid Cudi, Wale, Wyclef, G-Unit, Slaughterhouse, Maino, Jadakiss, Papoose, Crooked I, Uncle Murda, Jim Jones, and Juelz Santana.
Fabolous wrote “Its interesting to c 50 Cent unit wit NY artists when he’s 1 of the reasons NY hip hop became so isolated & crumbled..DO u agree NY??” Thats a pretty bold statement considering that 50 Cent is one of the most prominent rappers from New York.
50 Cent personally responded to the statement on his blog:
Reading what Fab said about me on Twitter was disappointing.
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.
Law #2: Never put too much trust in Friends, Learn how to use Enemies
Be wary of friends?they will betray you more quickly, for they are easily aroused to envy. They also become spoiled and tyrannical. But hire a former enemy and he will be more loyal than a friend, because he has more to prove. In fact, you have more to fear from friends than from enemies. If you have no enemies, find a way to make them.
?50th Law of Power.
Am I 50 Cent or Am I Machiavelli? Dammmm!!!
