50 Cent vs. Alica Keys: Somebody's Pissy...

​ ​ ​ ​

Remember that gangsta rap conspiracy theory Alicia Keys told Blender mag about? Even though she cleared up what she really meant, Curtis Jackson ain't having it. He went at Ms. Keys in a recent interview and he sounds extra salty: What did you think of Alicia Keys’ comments regarding gangsta rap in Blender? 50 cent: I don’t like Alicia Keys no more. She clarified the comments, though. 50 cent: If she thinks what they consider [to be] gangsta music is [made] to bring black people down then I think my sh*t falls into that category. I don’t like people who don’t like me. I don’t like her then because that’s what provides the life for me. I think if you ask Ice Cube the same shit, he’ll tell you, “F*ck Alicia Keys” for even saying that. Because the success he’s had as an actor and a businessman, there was no opportunity for that sh*t without N.W.A. But I don’t think that [her] classical sh*t is cool. I don’t give a f*ck if you can classically play the piano. I haven’t been classically trained, because my upbringing, nobody put me in front of a piano at that time. If they did, I would know how to do it as well as she does. I could learn how to play the piano if I was passionate about it right now. That’s obviously my perspective evaluating what she does, and I could f*ck*ng care less about the sh*t. So she don’t like the music that embodies the harsh realities because they’re not her realities. She hasn’t been subjected to the same things.

And he also said it just "wasn't a bright comment"--and he does believe she said it since the magazine is standing by it. Damn. I guess all chances of Alicia being his next R&B chick (we all know how he likes those) are slim to none. I doubt any of this ish talking will be better than the Khia vs. Trina beef, but it's still interesting nonetheless.

No one said he hasn't done good for himself, they're just saying he needs to change what he talks about for the young kids who listen to his music and look up to him. Yes, she did grow up in Hell's Kitchen, she doesn't need to lie! She's a pianist/songwriter/singer...WHY IN THE HELL WOULD SHE NEED TO GET STREET CRED!? And she also never said her real name was Alicia Keys. It's her stage name seeing as though she plays the--you guessed it--PIANO, idiot! Her real name is Alicia Augello Cook and she'll tell anyone that. Get your facts straight, sweetie!

If you think about what you said you will realize that you nor 50 make sense. Alicia grew up in Hell's Kitchen,it does not get tougher than that. You don't have to be white, or have a white momma to get out of the ghetto. Remember 50 got out of the ghetto, because people like you who listen to his music, and if he gotta sell self deprevating music to stay out of the ghetto he will. If we want more we have to do more,get an education honey![/quote] oooo wow..you act like men are the only ones that call women bitchs i mean yea i see where you going but dont make 50 out to be the bad guy..everyone has gone thre different things coming up soo i dnt agree with what alicia she ould have made a better comment and soo could have 50, but come on now , you act like men r the only ones walking around calln people bitches and hoes, i heard so many woman do the same..how bout we think sweety!!

roiiiight... We all know that

roiiiight... We all know that 50 was not alloted his fair share of brain cells so let's leave that as that. My problem with him is that people say that he used gangsta rap to move out and now he's got cash, women, bla bla bla. And I know 50 wont ever want to go back to the ghetto. However, his music encourages young impressionable minds to wallow in thinking and behaviour that is bound to keep them in the ghetto. Down here in Trinidad we have kids emulating people like him and Movado... people who are the worst forms of examples. *sigh*

[quote comment="73216"]50s just made because he knows she's right. Anybody who thoughts she wasn't wouldn't bother to comment on it.. 50 has to understand people make money doing things that aren't right. There are men on Wall Street making millions of dollars a year off of embezzelment. Why doesn't he go start a charity?[/quote] Tiara would fit perfectly in one of 50 videos. On her knees, taking it from the front and back. Basically, this is the only thing 50 would do for you. Why is your dumb ass defending him? This ghetto thug has issues with any female that has a mind and uses it. Fuck him and gangster rap! I am happy to read our people are not delusionsd by his glorified video images that mean nothing but a early cemetary plot for our young black men who try to emulate this retard in real life. Don't support this fool. As consumers we have the power to make or brake this dick head. Don't buy his vitamin water, CD's, or anything that is associated with him that he will profit off us. The average black household consist of a single parent and guess what gender? Female!! If he is hating on strong females, he is hating on all of us. Our children need role models, begining with us. If we allow our kids to remotely think the way he wants them to, they are doomed. DO NOT SPEND YOUR MONEY ON THIS IDIOT!!!!!!!!!!

Both Alicia Keys and 50 Cent

Both Alicia Keys and 50 Cent are GHETTO! You can take the girl outta the ghetto, but you can't take the ghetto outta the girl. Same goes for 50 Cent. Who cares what either of them say, they're both ignorant... And Tiara, you're an idiot.

50 needs to sit down and shut the hell up. That was Alicia opinion I do believe she's entitled to that. And why does he always sound so angry and ignorant over things that other people say when he is always talking crap about something or somebody. Alicia grew up in the hood just like him so what he mean talking like she can't relate to everyday struggle.

I am no Rap History Major. I

I am no Rap History Major. I do enjoy Rap Music but I dont agree with 50 Cents comment and I think he was unprofessional. A.Keys may have said what she said and frankly it is her business. I think we should shed more light on the issue of gangster rap. I listened to a little rap in the 80's and the focus was on the social ills, ecomonic deprevation, humiliation , disrespect and disregard of the balck man and black woman. It centered mainly on trying to restore these ills and stressed that we (Black or people of African or whatever descent that was not caucacian) were living breathing human beings too and we also deserved good shelter, food and other social amenities that the people of other races were getting. I think things took a downward spiral in the late 90's. Rap became commercialised everyone was wearing heavy and expensive jewelry, disrespecting women and glorifying killing one another and "thugrey". Whaever happened to street battles PURE AND REAL STREET BATTLES. Where a grown man spoke his mind, from the social ills as mentioned above to him not being able to provide for his pregnant girlfrind to him trying to det his darn GED;s so he can give his family and baby a better life.. Lord help. I apologise if this offends anyone and also for the length as I realize this is a lengthy comment.

[quote comment="73235"]I

[quote comment="73235"]I agree with 50 cents. Alicia Keys made comments about a subject she knows nothing of. Gangsta rap is a term that critics of hip hop or other people outside the hip hop world use to try label/catergorize rap artisits. Critics have used the term gangsta rap to describe Nas, LL Cool J, Slick Rick, and Public Enemy because they have aggressive, often socio-political lyrics, sometimes revolving around street violence, poverty, and gunplay.[/quote] Wow! Finally someone said something intelligent. If you remember "GangSta Rap" was a term fabricated by the media in the early 90's because of the content in rapper's lyrics at the time. This was around the time of the Rodney King incident and rappers were upset at the injustices and the mistreatment of the government (Cops) on us especially our black men. Hence, why Ice-T came out with the song "Cop Killa" at the time. He was angry and because he as well as other rappers/rap groups such as NWA, Public Enemy, KRS-One, Nas, etc., spoke their minds on how we as a people were (and still are) being treated, they labeled this type of rap "Gangsta Rap" as a way to control the lyrical content and essentially control us from expressing ourselves freely. If you remember, Ice-T was banned from performing at any venue. Anyway, I say this to say know and understand your history people. Understand what rap/hip-hop really is before judging it. I'm a huge rap fan by the way (and I'm a female just in case you wanted to know). Oh and when I say rap, I'm not referring to that "Laffy Taffy", "Soulja Boy" bullshit either! LOL

If 50 is sooooo very pressed

If 50 is sooooo very pressed over "Keeping it Real/Gangster" preservation, then why does he go out of his way to keep his son in a wealthy, privileged school district. Seriously Mr Cent, put your money where your[over-active]mouth is. Probably for the same reasons other folks don't want their children exposed to it; because it ultimately leads to death and despare. Besides, shouldn't his lifestyle (and mentality) have changed and matured by now?

I'm tired of so called

I'm tired of so called rappers trying to justify their music and actions. Many of them say "I'm just telling it,like it is", and "That's how it is where I'm from". In many instances this is a lie. Most rappers that claim they grew up poor are talking about how many hoes,money, and guns....ect they have on the first single. I think rappers need to take more responsibility. NWA enlightened us on how it was growing up in Compton, and so did movies like Boyz in the Hood. America has had gangsta rap, so tell your story, but say it in a different way. I also blame the record labels, because I believe they also pressure rappers to continue the ignorance so they sell records. At the end of the day the rappers know right from wrong. 50 needs to hush!!! He has no idea about what he is talking about. Alicia Keys did go to a performing Arts school, but so did Tupac. 50 admitted to liking Pac. Lets get it together!!!!

[quote comment="73207"]50 is

[quote comment="73207"]50 is the epitome of stupidity. He will start something with the hottest person out just to get his name in the headlines. Doesn't he remember that ass whoppin' Mr. West gave him? His ass must heal fast....[/quote] LOl... ass must heal real fast. The music industry doesn't need you, Mr. 5 cents. Nobody likes it when the pretty ones have a brain. 50's old @ss should STFU. He would still be nothing but a half page story in The Source's "unsigned hype". He made his money spitting stupid obscenities about women & being shot nine times (whoever shot his @ss must have been a LOUSY shot, anyways. Unless he was meant to live?....) . At least Ak tries to be positive. Does he REALLY wonder why Oprah won't have him on her show?

50 is a child. No black man

50 is a child. No black man with any sense that I know likes him, or buys his sh*t - they all think he's an idiot. Little white kids are the only ones who like him! He's bitter cuz he can't sell quad platinum anymore. He's bitter cuz his G-Unit crew is a joke. He's bitter cuz he can't keep a woman (Ciara? Please). He's mad cuz his gimmick has expired. He is so ignorant. For his information, they have asked Ice Cube many times about his feelings about NWA - he says it's what he was feeling at the time (of course) and the needed an outlet to vent frustrations. He doesnt want his kids listening to it, but if they hear it, he'll explain there a bigger world out there and you have to expand your mind. He has said they werent in it for the money at first, but of course when it became do popular, the record companies started pimping them. Yes, pimping - anyone who profits off of a communities' pain is just a PIMP! He also says that he turned away from it to focus on more positive things, and we have all seen this. He is still making music, and his music has always had a message, not just glamorizing killing our Black men. His last album was very political. 50'sast hit was U Get Money. AND??? So what! Life is about so much more!! Like another poster said, no one ever takes up for us Black women!!!!!! No one ever says, YES it's wrong - no other culture degrades there women so much and excuses it - maybe some people in the middle east. We are just as bad as them! The name calling, the disrespect. Everyone is always taking up for the ignorant disrespectful Black man - oh he's been through hard times, oh he needs money to feed his kids, of he's just telling the truth. BULLSH*T. It is 2008 and there is no reason to still be hawking this hate and pain and murder and pointless garbage. And we all know white kids buy 80% of rap records so who is he really trying to impress???? Please. And HELLO NEWSFLASH Alicia grew up in hells kitchen in NYC! That place was rough as hell. It was like a big pimp and ho stroll back in the day. Overrun with drugs and she was dirt poor! I wish somebody would tell this negro to get the f*ck outta here. He is a disgrace. And we all know rap is a dying genre. It's all about pop and r&b/pop and alternative R&B as far as urban music now! People are tired of hearing about that crap. They wanna hear music that makes them feel good, not bitter and mad. Where does that get us?? No where. We all know what goes on in the hood and its up to us individually to make our way in this country. It is possible if you really want it!! Black people are beautiful, smart, strong, loyal, empathetic, intuitive, cutting edge mind people and we need to stop with all this dumbing ourselves down. We are the sh*t!

I sat down yesterday and

I sat down yesterday and viewed a few videos on YouTube..I was ashamed at what I saw..My question is this..does America white or black view the Black Women as a hoe? Have I been reduced to just a Big Booty and Big Tits? I mean there's more to me then what I saw on the videos. I highly respect myself and I pride myself on being a woman of vision and change..I do not wish for my daughter who's only 12 to grow up believing in the imagines that surround her. That she's more than a sexual object. Even for my 16 year old son, I don't want for him to buy in the hype that the media is selling. That guns and drugs are the keys to his success in life. Because they are not.. Pick up a BOOK and READ it.. As for Mr. 50 Cents, shame on you to even say those words about Ms. Keys..why would you say those negative comments in public like that? Why not get intouch with her to speak your mind..Ms. Keys did not single you out..so why would what to set a tone of fowl words and create "beef"..I'm glad Ms. Keys mother instilled in her values and had her daughter study the piano. Culture is so important in our lives, it's needed because we are lacking it in so many ways..

The truth is these so called gangsta rappers are sending your children down the wrong path,so they can get a leg up in the business. I say open your eyes, our children are killing each other to live up to a life this man glorifies. I bet his son will have the best education and things that money can buy, because you are allowing your kids to buy his CD. And all they will get is a long prison term.

[quote comment="73343"][quote

[quote comment="73343"][quote comment="73235"]I agree with 50 cents. Alicia Keys made comments about a subject she knows nothing of. Gangsta rap is a term that critics of hip hop or other people outside the hip hop world use to try label/catergorize rap artisits. Critics have used the term gangsta rap to describe Nas, LL Cool J, Slick Rick, and Public Enemy because they have aggressive, often socio-political lyrics, sometimes revolving around street violence, poverty, and gunplay.[/quote] But you hit the nail right on the head!! I think what Alicia was trying to say all along is that the "term" gangsta rap was fabricated by the media to turn something creative into something destructive. And everybody took it out of context. 50 is the one who doesn't know what he's talking about because Alicia Keys grew up in the ghetto too! And he's hating on her for being a classically trained pianist?! Please. 50 is a damn ignorant moron and sadly, he's a product of the great work the government has done to keep the minds of Black individuals in chains.[/quote] Well Said

U know despite 50's usual

U know despite 50's usual antics, I liked him but guess what "I don't like 50 Cent no more"! This is the most ignorant, childish, poverty-conscious ish I have ever heard. I'm not surprise or anything, I'm just mad he would even attack her like that. This shows how dumb he really is! I swear he's on the f'n short bus. She was defending it and saying the "illuminati" coined it that to scare folk! 50 instead of gettin' money, you need to get a damn clue, WANKSTA!

50's an idiot. Does anybody really care what he says? I dont' and I'm sure Alicia is not losing any sleep over it!

Based on his comments, he

Based on his comments, he clearly didn't read the article himself; someone probably just told him about it. She was actually defending "gangsta rap" however suggesting that the West Coast/East Coast thing was media-driven, which it clearly was. 50 is the same person who didn't "endorse" Obama and then came back and got on the band wagon like his "endorsement" really meant something. That niga can't even vote.

Ha, all of you 50 haters need

Ha, all of you 50 haters need to cut the shit, right is right and wrong is wrong so stop your bullshit.. plenty of people out there care what 50 has to say, if they didn't then this wouldn't be news right now would it, get a clue. About the beef I stand by none of them, first Alicia is sure to hurt her fan base and alienate herself a bit, that comment will affect her pockets even if only a minor amount.. next 50 is the dude but he can be such a little emotional bitch sometimes, I can't believe that he is crying about what she said, so what if he had a hard time growing up, if he wasn't shot or struggled like he did then he wouldn't be where he is today so he needs to man-up and stop whining. Regardless of if they make-up or not they are both wanksters in my book.. I say that they should squash this and make a porn together, yeah a nice nasty porn with lots of vagina pounding/deep throating action going on.. oh yeah can someone get Alicia at least a C-cup first, those B tits that she is rocking is not cool at all, looking at her tits reminds me of the time that I was watching my cousins change from the closet back in the middle school days.. oh wait, that wasn't me, that was my friend, yes that guy.

Alicia Keys clarified what she said, she spoke the truth, and 50 mad because he KNOWS what she meant is TRUE. Don't be mad at Alicia because she UPLIFTS the black community, while 50's sorry ass glorifies black people killing each other. 50 is wack, and tiara, 50 wouldn't pee on him if your weave was on fire so why are you even agreeing with his sorry ass. what a dummy.
