Moment Of Clarity: Fabolous & 50 Cent

fab_501fab_502fab_503fab_504fab_505fab_507fab_8

Fab took to Twitter this morning and tried to make sense of the fuckery surrounding him and 50 Cent. Yesterday, he questioned 50’s motives behind his Thisis50 Fest last weekend. Though Loso clarified that he was wasn’t dissing 50, Curt said he was disappointed by the inquiry and implied that Fab was a turncoat.

Whatever the motivation, Fab’s entitled to his opinion. Fif’s no dummy. He’s shrewd and abides by Robert Greene’s 48 Laws of Power. Hell, the author even co-wrote 50’s book, The 50th Law. On the surface, the concert was a great sign of camaraderie. But according to Law #12 of the 48 Laws:

One sincere and honest move will cover over dozens of dishonest ones. Open-hearted gestures of honesty and generosity bring down the guard of even the most suspicious people.  Once your selective honesty opens a hole in their armor, you can deceive and manipulate them at will.  A timely gift – a Trojan horse – will serve the same purpose.

Perhaps I’m being cynical. Maybe 50 didn’t have an ulterior motive. Either way, Before I Self Destruct hits stores next month.

    Fab copping plea.
    This has not other context but what is said. “50 one of the reason NY Hip Hop crumbled”.

    How else can you contextualize this?

    Fab a girl for insulting people’s intelligent.

  • dickinyamom

    Loso’s Way > B.I.S.D. I guarantee…

  • incilin

    Nah B, you aint being cynical at all. You was on point before and I think you right again. I just can’t trust 50 to be a nice guy, he’s gotta be scheming on something. BTW, I totally need to buy the 50th Law of Power book.

  • john macabee

    if 50 can deliver on bisd then all of this negative/uncertain energy surrounding him is gonna turn into a crazy wave… i guess will find out when bisd leaks in 3-4 weeks

    Either Way U Look @ It, [OJ] 50 Is Part Of The Reason…Almost Every1 On That Stage Had Beef With That Dude…He Went After Any1 Not @ His Camp To Claim His Fame…Dudes Started Beefing When Some Start Siding With Him Bc They Were Scared…So They Stop Making Music With Artists That They’ve Been Doing With For The Longest [i.e. LOX, Joe Budden Of Slaugtherhouse, Busta Rhymes, The Diplomats *Now Jimmy & Cam Dont Fuck With Each Other*...& It Goes On].

    Now What I Think He Is Doing Now… Is Trying To Reunite, Now Dudes Secrets, Expose Them To Regain His Thunder…Or Collab With Those Who Can’t Stand Jay-Z, Cause A Revolution & Try To Overturn The King…

    Remember…He’s Playing Chess…Thats What He Always Said!

    [Correction] *So They Stop Making Music With Artists That They’ve Been Doing Business With For The Longest

  • OJ

    Uh Mr. Ocean
    all that you wrote is fine and dandy, but Fab acting like he didn’t say it in the only context it exist. he trying to create a diffrent context when it’s clear what he said. That’s my only point
    whether 50 did or not is another for me, but Fab need to get off the girl stuff.
    He should be extremely grateful 50 didn’t take it there cause Fab ain’t built like that. and I’m not talking lyrics

    Fab is absolutely right to be weary fo Fifty. At the same time, it’s nothing to get into a beef over.. so Fifty needs to fall back and do him for a lil while.. go finish ur album.

    Fab is right, we knwo Fifty is probably trying ot get the rappers together to do a big tour and make some more money from it.. there hasn’t been a big rap tour in a while so I’m sure 50 cent is just tryign to get it together before someone else does it and he’ll need “friends” he’s MAD that Jay-Z can do a “friends” show and have HUGE people on stage and he only has G-Unit..

    So, time to manipulate the entertainers, make them friends so he can have a big concert like Jay-Z.

    We see the science, we understand the math. Fab didn’t need to say a word, but at least it shows that he’s not a slow as he seems sometimes

  • J Dizzzle

    Fab copping pleas.

    If your going to say something stick to your guns. He didnt try to start no beef, but it was an obvious dig at Fif.

  • Trin

    I like fab and 50 im from the NYC area. Lets be real about Fabs comment NY has been on some ununited s**tlong before 50. There was a love period after BIG died but thats it

    PPL talk but how to rob was a JOKE that NY rappers took to the heart…. Period thats wat started shit,

    Fat Joe BEEN beefing with Jay Z
    Nas & Jay Beef
    50 and Ja was a REAL beef
    DMX beefed with Ja
    Nas VS Cormega
    Nas VS Nature
    Jaz O VS Jayz
    Wu Vs BIG (cept for meth wu aint f**k with BIG) thats public
    Jay came at 50 in song over nothing 50 ened that quick with Be a gentlemen, Then Jay Aint mention 50 for a long time
    Benie vs Jada
    Lox vs Bad Boy
    Clue vs alot of ppl
    Mobb Deep VS Jay Z
    Pun VS Jay Z
    Cam Vs Jay Z
    Cam Vs Mase
    and countless others nigz in NY had MAD beef always. ITs the nature of NY

    That nas 50 s**twas cuz nas did some sideways s**tthat you’d be mad about too.

    NY RAPPERS always been beefinf with eachother before 50 shit

    I agree the Massacre beef was created I think BUT if you from the street and you dont f**k with some one on some real beef s**tyou beef with WHO EVER that person cool with. That was that Piggy Bank situation. The Kanye and 50 beef the BOTH admited to co conspiring that.

    Either Way fab stay off of twitter. Thats it. I respect his opinion but dont it seem like he go after any onr that got something to say about Jay….

    Take it for wat its worth 50 brought mad NY acts together regardless of intentions WHO ELSE in NYC is doing that.. No one….

    Enjoy the moment and Keep It Moving.

    Stop with all these hating ass comments a lot of yall Look for the beef like yall want it. 50 play this s**tas a sport, Competition is his nature. leave at that.

  • CAPS LOCK

    CAPS LOCK IS CRUISE CONTROL FOR COOL!!

    “TYPING IN ALL CAPS IS THE AWESOMEST THING EVAR. JUST BY PRESSING THE THE “CAPS LOCK” BUTTON AND THEN PROCEEDING TO TYPE NORMALLY, YOU’LL SOON BECOME NOTICED BY EVERYONE. PEOPLE WILL START TAKING YOU MORE SERIOUSLY ONLINE AND YOU’LL SOON BECOME AN IMPORTANT AND RESPECTED INTERNETS USER. THEY WILL FIND EVERYTHING YOU SAY TERRIBLY INTERESTING AND INSIGHTFUL, MEMBERS OF ALL GENDERS WILL WANT TO HAVE SEX WITH YOU AND YOU’LL BECOME EXTREMELY GOOD IN BED. NOT ONLY WILL IT DO ALL THESE THINGS AND MORE, IT WILL ALSO MAKE YOU SOUND LIKE SAMUEL JACKSON, JUST LIKE IN HIS MOVIES. AN UNFORTUNATE SIDE EFFECT TO THIS GREAT ADDITION CONDITION IS YELLING “MOTHERFUCKER”, “FUCKING RACISTS”, “FUCK YOU, NIGGA”, ” ENGLISH MOTHERFUCKER, DO YOU SPEAK IT?” AND “BITCH PLEASE”. ALSO TAKE IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL, IF YOU FUCKING DARE.”

    Please, you seem ignorant enough as it is.
    THERE’S NO NEED TO TAKE IT A STEP FURTHER!!!!
