50 Cent Admires Kanye West's Lloyd Banks Compliment
Fiddy is happy about Yeezy's nod to Banks...
Fiddy claims that he really respects the way that Kanye decided to publicly show his appreciation and admiration for Banks.
50 told DJ Whoo Kid: "I thought that was really nice of him. A lot of artists, we appreciate each other without publicly saying it. It's the competitive nature of the art form. A lot of what you see as beef is battling. It's always been a part of the culture.
"It's always been differences for no reason, like, MC Shan and KRS-One, The Bridge Is Over, what inspired that? See what I'm saying? It's hip-hop. It's what keeps the art form fresh and keeps the artist thriving to be the best because it's that competitive edge.
“They all want their next album to be the best one. I'd never turn away from working with West. He's creative, a talented guy. I think people forget why we even know who he is. It's based on music. It's not his actual personality.
"Like Floyd Mayweather, people misinterpret his confidence for arrogance, me the same, Kanye the same.
"They'll call us idiots at different points but they don't know what it takes to continue success after being in the public space. Look at the blog, see how many positive things you hear and see how many negative things you see."
