In an interview with Hot 97's Angie Martinez yesterday, 50 Cent clarified some lines on a recent song that seemed critical of Lil Wayne.
On "Love, Hate, Love," Fif spits, "Confused, acting like a white boy bored / Now you want to jump a flight of stairs on a skateboard / N---a why the f--k your pants so tight / You trying to show n---as your ass, your alternative life."
The lines definitely seemed to be aimed at Lil Wayne, and while 50 didn't dispute that, he did insist that he didn't have any beef with the New Orleans MC.
"I did kind of do that, I did write the Lil Wayne line on the actual song," he said. "But when I got an issue, there’s clarity in it. I don’t really do subliminal."
"I made the reference to his actions," he continued. "Within hip hop culture, I’m watching the artist attempting to be like the audience in order to gain the audience, instead of just letting them come to us. That’s even why the urban apparel business is going away, because they dress like they’re skateboarders. If you wearing skinny jeans, that’s their culture. That’s something a skateboarder would wear. [...] I don’t have a problem [with Weezy]."
