50 Cent Blasts Alicia Keys
G-Unit man attacks Alicia's music
Alicia Keys explained that her comments which were published in Blender magazine suggesting that Gangsta Rap was a government conspiracy "to convince black people to kill each other" were "misrepresented."
As previously reported by MTV, 50 Cent took these comments as a personal insult and was quoted saying: "I don't like Alicia Keys no more...If she thinks what they consider [to be] gangsta music is [made] to bring black people down, then I think my s*** falls into that category," Ending strongly "I don't like people who don't like me."
The G-Unit leader is still furious with Ms Keys and has launched a further attack on the singer, her music and her piano! Sources have quoted Fiddy, real name Curtis Jackson saying: "I don't think that [her] classical s*** is cool. I don't give a f*** if you can classically play the piano," he said.
"I haven't been classically trained, because my upbringing, nobody put me in front of a piano at that time...I could f**king care less about the s***. 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."
Trying to clear up the 'misunderstanding' - Alicia Keys defended her remarks with an official statement: "The point that I was trying to make was that the term was over-sloganized by some of the media causing reactions that were not always positive," She continued. "Many of the 'gangsta rap' lyrics articulate the problems of the artists' experiences and I think all of us, including our leaders, could be doing more to address these problems including drugs, gang violence, crime, and other related social issues."
Keys isn't the only artist Fiddy is beefing with at the moment, as he's also trading verbals with former G-Unit member Young Buck.
