Back in December of 2011, Slim The Mobster called out 50 Cent for letting his fame and wealth effect the quality of his music.
"50 got a lot of money, he kind of forgot what it was to make a street record. I'm not saying that to talk sh*t about him, I'm just saying that in the light of, when you get money, even [Dr.] Dre, it's hard to talk about being broke when you've got money. I don't got no hundreds of millions of dollars. I'm straight. My struggle was a few years back. Don't expect me to rap about being broke when you've got money," Slim said.
50 later responded to Slim's criticism during an interview with Shade 45. 50 said that he didn't know who Slim The Mobster was at the time, but that he would be having a talk with Dr. Dre before he takes any action and makes the situation escalate.
"Dre, he's not active, he's not out. So you don't really know what he's thinking. I don't know what's going on. If I'm there [with Dre], I can feel what's going on. Other than that, I don't know -- I just seen a clip online of one of the artists saying something crazy. [For real?] Yeah. I can't remember the guy's name. He said something. It's one of Dre's new artists. He said something but I don't know where it comes from so I'll have a conversation with Dre before I jump the gun."
Now Slim The Mobster has snapped, and gone off on 50 on Twitter. It seems kind of random that he would choose to lash out now, but regardless, the man went hard. He didn't do the usual Twitter thing, where people might crack a joke on someone or just type a series of curse words with exclamation marks (!), but he actually made some fairly serious threats. Slim also dissed the most technically skilled boxer of all time, Floyd Mayweather, by insinuating that he and 50 Cent are more intimate than just being friends.
A lot of the things Slim stated on Twitter could get him in a lot of trouble, both with Dr. Dre and his label, Interscope, but also with the law as well. Who knows if 50 or Floyd will respond to this. They are both making loads of money right now and might just brush it off, but we shall see.
