50 Cent is known for having some pretty epic beefs with various rappers during his career. Cam'ron and Fat Joe are a few of them. Even though he went to lyrical battle with both of these veteran rappers, 50 Cent is still man enough to admit that he has really liked a few songs that each rapper created in the past. Now that all of the beef has been laid to rest between 50 and Cam and Fat Joe, 50 opened up to VIBE about which of their records stood out to him the most.
"'357,' that's it. 'Horse and Carriage' didn't even mean that to me. That was like - Whenever an artist makes a joint that you listen to and go 'ooh' like that joint had me. The beat, the whole thing. It struck a chord in me, that's how-- Even for Busta, his portfolio of music, for me is 'Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Can See.'Even fat boy. Fat Joe, his was 'Lean Back.'
"When I was in the mixtape circuit, there was a lot going on. I was able to take things that I wish I made myself and do 'em over. Now it's not a lot of sh*t out there I would do over. I'm like, Nah, that ain't even it right there. You know what I'm saying? When Black Rob had 'Whoa!,' I wish that was my record. I wish 'Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See,' by Busta Rhymes, was my record. F*ckin' 'Lean Back,' I wish that was mine. You see what I'm saying? And you know me and Fat Joe don't get along. You know what I'm saying? But to the culture, when you have those moments... And I'm sure they'll tell you they wish they had 'In Da Club' and 'P.I.M.P.'"
Do you think that Cam and Fat Joe are envious of some of 50's music too?
