A Regular Meeting of the Minds.

50 Cent called Alicia Keys dumb. And he said he doesn’t like her music anymore because last week she was quoted as saying that “‘Gangsta rap’ was a ploy to convince black people to kill each other. ‘Gangsta rap’ didn’t exist.”

“It’s just not really a bright comment …” 50 said.

Now, he swears he’ll never see Alicia in the same way.

“I don’t like Alicia Keys no more though… the same reason why I said that I don’t like Oprah Winfrey.”

“I’m prejudice[d]. I don’t like people who don’t like me. If you don’t like the content that I write because of my experiences; I am being who I am when I am writing it. I fall into that ‘label’ as far as you considering artists creating ‘Gangsta music,’ we fall into that.”

“If she don’t like that, [then] I don’t like that classical music s*** she be doing. At some point she’s playing some s*** that don’t relate to me. We listen to it and try to figure out why people actually enjoy it. I am trying to enjoy it. That statement changes my perception of Alicia Keys totally.” [All Headline News]

So much for keeping an open mind. But then again, what was Alicia talking about? She’s since released a statement saying her comments were “misinterpreted.”

“The recent implications about me are too radical and too dramatic a departure from whom I have continually demonstrated myself to be.” [All Headline News]

Right. But I don’t think anybody was all that surprised.

    Alicia Keys and 50 Cent beef? I can’t be the only person dying from the sheer comedy of this. And for the right to defend gangsta rap at that. *smh*

  • so 50 thinks he’s a gangsta rapper now? And after re-reading Alicia’s comments, I’m convinced she’s been hanging out with Nas.

  • Hi there!
