50 Cent had created a lot of hype when he stated that he is down to doing a Verzuz rap battle with his long-time arch nemesis The Game, while acknowledging his talent.
You know what? Look. Okay, he can’t play no records with my voice on it.
He went on to say that while they’ve had their differences, The Game was an essential part of the G-Unit, and that’s something which is close to his heart.
As much as we argued and fought in the early stages, I would rather see him benefit from the momentum than someone else. He was still part of G-Unit and is gonna be a part of the legacy of — overall. Even if you just want to focus on the break up.
In an interview about his upcoming series, Power Book III: Raising Kanan, he said that he is not interested in doing a Verzuz battle anymore, since the lockdowns have lifted and they should be doing things out in the open world.
A Verzuz battle? Probably not. We back outside. That was something that happened during the pandemic when we was stuck in the house. Now that we back outside, there’s other things to do. We supposed to be creating new history, not being back there.
Fif has always had an excellent sense of what is the most fun and profitable thing you can do in any scenario, so it isn’t surprising that the rapper is one of the first celebrities to acknowledge that their options have now expanded, and the world has moved on.[Via]
