“50 Cent is photographed confronting Steve Stoute in New York.
The exchange likely stems from comments Stoute made earlier this week regarding the rapper during an interview with New York radio station Hot 97. Stoute said that the Queens, New York rapper is no longer influential due to the fact that he believes the musician hasn’t released a hit record since 2007’s “I Get Money.”
“He hasn’t had a hit in a really long time,” Stoute said. “I mean, he has not made anything musically that’s changed anything in a very long time. And I feel like he’s always like gearing up for something that never happens. Hopefully, now that he’s independent and there’s no record company to blame, his aggressive content can get on the air…I think he’s trying to get back, but those guys—you know, music is a great platform. If you’re an entrepreneur and you have a—you’re currently active making music. You’re currently active touching people with albums. That it makes it much easier for you to venture into business deals that will become successful using the music to parlay it to get it done. And without having any music that’s meaningful over the last—probably the last great song he’s made was ‘I Get Money’…Kanye’s put out three albums, four albums since then.”
