Everyone wanted to know if 50 Cent was trying to diss Jay-Z on his new mixtape track “Flight 187.”(click to listen) The G-Unit mastermind spoke to MTV exclusively and said there’s no beef, just observation.
“It was the glasses,” 50 explained about why he compared Hov to sitcom character Steve Urkel. “They saw the glasses. I didn’t Photoshop glasses on him. I think Jay is really conscious of his actual moves. He does those things to make a statement in different ways to create clarity that he doesn’t have to be the way people want him to be. He can do what he wants. But [I wrote the song] out of the perspective of me mentioning things I thought were interesting.”
