50¢ Goes Hunting For French Montana
This nigga 50 ain't playin when it comes to wanting to get an explanation from French Montana "face to face"... Word on the tweets is, there was a French Montana listening party over at Interscope... 50 shows up and it's a "ghost town"... 50 gettin' Suge with it. Wait... see what happened to Suge tho [*hides*]...
Right, because in the streets beef is way to expand your territory. Before, like with 50 Cent, beef used to be good for business. But now, beef is bad for business.
That’s why I stay away from it.
Is that why you’re one the few rappers that’s cool with all the big crews?
I used to be enemies with everybody, now I’m just cool with everybody. You have to learn you get more money like that.
Is that why you avoid some of the situations? I look at someone like Pusha saying Lil Wayne’s Dedication 4 isn’t that good. Whereas you, you have Wayne on your songs but you rolled with Kanye before and then you also hang out with Rick Ross. It seems like avoiding beef has been a conscious decision.
Yeah, you have to. I feel like you have to expand. But when you beef, you put negative energy out there and it brings negative energy back. When you put something positive out there, it brings positive energy back. I feel like if you want to beef go to the streets, beef with niggas that really wanna beef. If you have nothing to live for. Beef is not about money.
[With rap] it’s like, you ain’t going to see them people you beefing with. You lying. You got security, you're never at the same events. It’s like you beefing in a smart way if you’re trying to come up. Then it’s like a competition, you know like a battle rap. But if you want to battle rap you might as well call Fight Club, get to battle rapping. Don’t act like you want problems.
You should avoid beef if you trying to make money. People get scared when you try to beef with people. In general, [even in street shit] nobody want to stand next to you if somebody about to shoot you, unless you have a a big lick [Ed. Note—A "lick" means a hustle.] They [used to] do that with 50 because 50 was the bank. They knew he was going to win. People ain’t doing that [anymore].
Because the rap game isn’t built that way anymore.
No, it’s over for that. It’s gone, big time. They’ll get you out so fast.
