Fat Joe admitted that 50 Cent’s 2003 album, “Get Rich Or Die Tryin,” is one of the greatest of all time despite their past beef.
“One of the greatest albums of all time,” Fat Joe began. “And it’s crazy ’cause I had beef with him and I wouldn’t allow myself to hear it, wouldn’t let DJs play it. But I knew that it was G-Unit. Recently J. Cole came out at his concert and said it was the greatest album of all time. Nas came out and said, ‘Yo this changed the game.’ And it’s a fact.”
The Terror Squad boss continued, “His flows, his melodies, his beats, the energy Hip Hop music had never felt. That energy that he was coming with, it was like yo, this is that — you got that dangerous thing to it. He teamed up with Mr. Professional, Dr. Dre and Eminem. See, 50 Cent woulda still been amazing but he’d have came with those New York beats that was really really good, but once again, Dr. Dre makes everything iPic. He makes everything crystal clear. He just gives you that professionalism like you on a podium or something.”
J. Cole also gave the G-Unit head honcho his flowers by crowning “Get Rich Or Die Tryin” the best album of all time, putting Michael Jackson’s best-selling project, “Thriller,” right behind it.
“Can I say this before I move off stage?” the Fayetteville rapper asked. “If y’all don’t make some noise for one of the greatest n*ggas to ever do this sh*t. 50 muthafu*kin’ Cent, Curtis Jackson. ‘Get Rich Or Die Tryin’ the best album of all time. I don’t give a f*ck what you talking about, n*gga! It’s ‘Get Rich Or Die Tryin’ at No. 1 and it’s ‘Thriller’ at No. 2, and I love Michael Jackson. But I promise y’all that, Curtis Jackson, 50 Cent, we love you my n*gga, for real.”
