50 Cent slams Kanye West for running in on Beck
50 Cent is not cool with Kanye West’s suggestion
that Beck should give his Grammy to Beyonce.
After Beck won album of the year at the awards
ceremony on Sunday, Kanye West claimed that
he should have given his gong to Beyoncé and
that doesn’t sit well with rapper, 50 Cent.
According to the ‘Window Shopper’ hitmaker,
‘Beck wrote and produced his own hits on
Morning Phase while Beyonce needed plenty of
help on her self-titled album.
‘[Beck] produced [his]ord, wrote the record –
there’s 11 producers on Beyoncé’s album,’ 50
Cent said and added: ‘Kanye being a producer
and writer should see that.’
As far as 50 Cent is concerned, he has been forced
to lose graciously in the past, like when
Evanescence beat him to the best new artist at
the Grammys in 2004.
‘I felt I deserved Best New Artist for my first
album. It’s the largest debut in rap with 13million
records sold. When’s the last time you saw
Evanescence?’ he asked rhetorically.
West has since sheepishly back-pedalled on the
incident, insisting he was ‘mis-worded’.
‘When I said ‘respect artistry’, it came off the
wrong way, and that was a mis-wording on my
part because Beck is one of the most respected
artists,’ he said.
